14 And when JESUS was come into Peter's house, he saw his wife's mother lying, and sick of a fever: 15 And he touched her hand, and the fever left her, and she arose, and ministered to them.

28 And when he was come on the other side of the water, into the country of the Gerasens, there met him two that were possessed with devils, coming out of the sepulchres, exceeding fierce, so that none could pass by that way.

18 And JESUS seeing great multitudes about him, gave orders to pass over the water.

19 And a certain scribe came, and said to him: Master, I will follow thee whithersoever thou shalt go. 20 And JESUS saith to him: The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air nests, but the Son of Man hath not where to lay his head.

21 And another of his disciples said to him: Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father.

31 And the devils besought him, saying: If thou cast us out hence, send us into the herd of swine.

32 And he said to them: Go. But they going out, went into the swine, and behold the whole herd run violently down a steep place into the sea: and they perished in the waters.

33 And they that kept them fled: and coming into the city, told every thing, and concerning them that had been possessed by the devils.

34 And behold the whole city went out to meet JESUS, and when they saw him, they besought him that he would depart from their

3 And behold some of the Scribes said within themselves: He blasphemeth.

13 Go then and learn what this meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice. For I am not come to call the just, but sinners..

14 Then came to him the disciples of John, saying: Why do we and the Pharisees fast often, but thy disciples do not fast?

23 And when JESUS was come into the house of the ruler, and saw the minstrels and the multitude making a rout,

24 He said: Give place, for the girl is not dead, but sleepeth. And they laughed him to scorn.

25 And when the multitude was put forth, he went in, and took her by the hand. And the maid arose.

30 And their eyes were opened,

and JESUS strictly charged them, saying, See that no man know this. 31 But they going out, spread his fame abroad in all that country.

32 And when they were gone out, behold they brought him a dumb man, possessed with a devil.

33 And after the devil was cast out, the dumb man spoke, and the multitudes wondered, saying,Never was the like seen in Israel.

34 But the Pharisees said, By the prince of devils he casteth out devils.

35 And JESUS went about all the cities, and towns, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every disease, and every infirmity.

ND having called his twelve A disciples together, he gave them power over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of diseases and all manner of infirmities.

2 And the names of the twelve apostles are these: the first, Simon who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother,

3 James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, Philip and Bartholomew, Thomas and Matthew the publican, and James the son of Alpheus, and Thaddeus,

4 Simon the Cananean, and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed him.

5 These twelve JESUS sent, commanding them, saying: Go ye not into the way of the gentiles, and into the cities of the Samaritans enter ye not :

6 But go ye rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

7 And going, preach, saying: The kingdom of heaven is at hand.

8 Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out devils: freely have you received, freely give.

9 Do not possess gold, nor silver, nor money in your purses:

10 Nor scrip for your journey, nor two coats, nor shoes, nor a staff; for the workman is worthy of his meat.

11 And into whatsoever city or town you shall enter, inquire who in it is worthy, and there abide till you go thence.

12 And when you come into the house, salute it, saying: Peace be to this house.

13 And if that house be worthy, your peace shall come upon it; but if it be not worthy, your peace: shall return to you.

14 And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words : going forth out of that house or city shake off the dust from your feet.

15 Amen I say to you, it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.

16 Behold I send you as sheep in the midst of wolves. Be ye therefore wise as serpents and simple as doves.

17 But beware of men. For they will deliver you up in councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues.

18 And you shall be brought before governors, and before kings, for my sake, for a testimony to them and to the gentiles:

21 The brother also shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the son; and the children shall rise up against their parents, and shall put them to death.

33 But he that shall deny me before men, I will also deny him before my Father who is in heaven.

34 Do not think that I came to send peace upon earth: I came not to send peace, but the sword.

35 For I came to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, 22 And you shall be hated by and the daughter-in-law against her all men for my name's sake: but mother-in-law. he that shall persevere unto the end, he shall be saved.

36 And a man's enemies, shall be they of his own household.

41 He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet, shall receive the reward of a prophet; and he that receiveth a just man in the name of a just man, shall receive the reward of a just man.

42 And whosoever shall give to drink to one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, amen I say to you, he shall not lose his reward.

7 And when they went their way, JESUS began to say to the multitudes concerning John: What went you out into the desert to see? a reed shaken with the wind?

8 But what went you out to see? a man clothed in soft garments? Behold they that are clothed in soft garments, are in the houses of kings.

9 But what went you out to see? a prophet? yea I tell you, and more than a prophet.

10 For this is he of whom it is written: Behold I send my Angel before thy face who shall prepare thy way before thee.

20 Then began he to upbraid the cities, wherein were done the most of his miracles, for that they had not done penance.

21 Wo to thee, Corozain, wo to thee, Bethsaida: for if in Tyre and Sidon had been wrought the miracles that have been wrought in you, they had long ago done penance in sack-cloth and ashes.

22 But I say unto you, it shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon in the day of judgment, than for you.
