38 Then John spake to him, 28 Now when Jesus was saying, "Master, we saw one come into a house, his disci-casting out demons in thy name, ples asked him privately, "Why and we forbade him.

30 AND departing thence, they went through Galilee; and he was unwilling that any one should know it. 31 For he taught his disciples, and said to them, "The Son of man is about to be delivered up into the hands of men; and they will kill him; and being killed, he will arise on the third day." 32 But they understood not what he meant; and were afraid to ask him.

10 And in the house, his disciples again asked him concerning this matter. 11 And he said to them, "Whosoever shall put away his wife, and shall marry another, committeth adultery against her. 12 And if a woman shall put away her husband, and shall be married to another, she committeth adul

20 And he answering, said to him, "Teacher, all these things I have kept from my youth." 21 Then Jesus looking on him, loved him, and said to him, "In one thing thou art deficient: go, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to [the] poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven and come, [taking up the cross] and follow me." 22 And he was sad at these words, and went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions. 23 And Jesus looking round about, said to his disciples, "With what difficulty will those that have riches enter into the kingdom of God!"

32 NOW being on the way, going up to Jerusalem; and Jesus walked before them: and they were seized with a horror, and followed him with fear. Then taking the twelve aside, he began to tell them the things which were about to befal him: 33" Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man 24 And the disciples were will be delivered up to the astonished at his words.

35 AND James and John, the sons of Zebedee, came to him, saying, "Teacher, we request that thou wouldst do for us whatsoever we shall ask." 36 And he said to them, "What do ye desire that I should do for you?" 37 Then they said

to him, "Grant us that we may sit, one on thy right hand, and the other on thy left hand, in thy glory." 38 But Jesus said to them, "Ye know not what ye ask can ye drink of the cup of which I am to drink? and be baptized with the baptism with which I am to be baptized?" 39 And they said to him, "We can." And Jesus said to them, "Ye will drink indeed of the cup of which I am to drink; and will be baptized with the baptism with which I am to be baptized: 40 but, to sit on my right hand, and on my left hand, is not mine to give, except to those for whom it is prepared."

reth, he began to cry out, and to say, "Jesus, thou son of David, have pity on me." 48 And many rebuked him, that he might be silent: but he cried out much louder, "Thou son of David, have pity on me."

49 And Jesus stopping, ordered him to be called: and they called the blind man, saying to him, "Be encouraged, rise; he calleth thee." 50 And casting away his mantle, he rose up, and went to Jesus. 51 And Jesus speaking, said to him, "What dost thou wish me to do for thee?" Then the blind man said to him, "Master, that I may receive my sight." 52 And Jesus said to him, "Go: thy faith hath restored thee." And immediately, he received his sight, and followed him on the road.

41 And the ten hearing this, began to be moved with indignation against James and John. 42 But Jesus, having called them together, said to them, "Ye know that those who rule over the gentiles have dominion over them; and their great ones exercise authority upon them. 43 But it shall not be so among you: but whoso ever desireth to be great among you, must be your servant: 44 and whosoever of you, desireth to be chief, must be the slave of all. 45 For even the Son of man came not to be served, but to serve; and to give his life a ransom for many.

CH. XI. 1 AND when they drew near to Jerusalem, being come as far as Bethphage, and Bethany, near the mount of Olives, he sent two of his disciples, and said to them, 2" Go into the town, over-against you: and immediately as ye enter into it, ye will find a colt tied, whereon no man ever sat: loose it, and bring it to me.

20 And in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig-tree withered away from the roots. 21 Whereupon Peter recollecting, said to him, "Master, behold the fig-tree, which thou hast devoted, already withered." 22 And Jesus answering, said to them, "Have faith in God. 23 For verily I tell you, Whosoever shall say to this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea;' and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that what he saith will come to pass; he shall have [whatsoever he saith;] 24 for which reason, I tell you, All things whatsoever ye ask when ye pray,believe that ye will receive them, and ye shall have them. 25 And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have

12 AND on the morrow, on their coming from Bethany, he was hungry. 13 And seeing a fig-tree at a distance, full of leaves, he went to see if he could find any fruit on it, (for the season for the gathering of figs was not come,) but on coming to it, he found nothing but leaves. 14 Whereupon he said to it; "Henceforth let no one eat fruit of thee to the age."
