6:23. Be glad in that day and rejoice: for behold, your reward is great in heaven, For according to these things did their fathers to the prophets.
6:24. But woe to you that are rich: for you have your consolation.
6:25. Woe to you that are filled: for you shall hunger. Woe to you that now laugh: for you shall mourn and weep.
6:26. Woe to you when men shall bless you: for according to these things did their fathers to the false prophets.
6:27. But I say to you that hear: Love your enemies. Do good to them that hate you.
6:28. Bless them that curse you and pray for them that calumniate you.
6:29. And to him that striketh thee on the one cheek, offer also the other. And him that taketh away from thee thy cloak, forbid not to take thy coat also.
6:30. Give to every one that asketh thee: and of him that taketh away thy goods, ask them not again.
6:31. And as you would that men should do to you, do you also to them in like manner.
6:32. And if you love them that love you, what thanks are to you? For sinners also love those that love them.
6:33. And if you do good to them who do good to you, what thanks are to you? For sinners also do this.
6:34. And if you lend to them of whom you hope to receive, what thanks are to you? For sinners also lend to sinners, for to receive as much.
6:35. But love ye your enemies: do good, and lend, hoping for nothing thereby: and your reward shall be great, and you shall be the sons of the Highest. For he is kind to the unthankful and to the evil.
6:36. Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful.
6:37. Judge not: and you shall not be judged. Condemn not: and you shall not be condemned. Forgive: and you shall be forgiven.
6:38. Give: and it shall be given to you: good measure and pressed down and shaken together and running over shall they give into your bosom.
For with the same measure that you shall mete withal, it shall be measured to you again.
6:39. And he spoke also to them a similitude: Can the blind lead the blind? Do they not both fall into the ditch?
6:40. The disciple is not above his master: but every one shall be perfect, if he be as his master.
6:41. And why seest thou the mote in thy brother's eye: but the beam that is in thy own eye thou considerest not?
6:42. Or how canst thou say to thy brother: Brother, let me pull the mote out of thy eye, when thou thyself seest not the beam in thy own eye? Hypocrite, cast first the beam out of thy own eye: and then shalt thou see clearly to take out the mote from thy brother's eye.
6:43. For there is no good tree that bringeth forth evil fruit: nor an evil tree that bringeth forth good fruit.
6:44. For every tree is known by its fruit. For men do not gather figs from thorns: nor from a bramble bush do they gather the grape.
6:45. A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth that which is evil. For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.
6:46. And why call you me, Lord, Lord; and do not the things which I say?
6:47. Every one that cometh to me and heareth my words and doth them, I will shew you to whom he is like.
6:48. He is like to a man building a house, who digged deep and laid the foundation upon a rock. And when a flood came, the stream beat vehemently upon that house: and it could not shake it: for it was founded on a rock.
6:49. But he that heareth and doth not is like to a man building his house upon the earth without a foundation: against which the stream beat vehemently. And immediately it fell: and the ruin of that house was great.
Luke Chapter 7
Christ heals the centurion's servant. He raises the widow's son to life, answers the messengers sent by John and absolves the penitent sinner.
7:1. And when he had finished all his words in the hearing of the people, he entered into Capharnaum.
7:2. And the servant of a certain centurion who was dear to him, being sick, was ready to die.
7:3. And when he had heard of Jesus, he sent unto him the ancients of the Jews, desiring him to come and heal his servant.
7:4. And when they came to Jesus, they besought him earnestly, saying to him: He is worthy that thou shouldest do this for him.
7:5. For he loveth our nation: and he hath built us a synagogue.
7:6. And Jesus went with them. And when he was now not far from the house, the centurion sent his friends to him, saying: Lord, trouble not thyself; for I am not worthy that thou shouldst enter under my roof.
7:7. For which cause neither did I think myself worthy to come to thee: but say the word, and my servant shall be healed.
7:8. For I also am a man subject to authority, having under me soldiers: and I say to one, Go, and he goeth: and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doth it.
7:9. Which Jesus hearing, marvelled: and turning about to the multitude that followed him, he said: Amen I say to you, I have not found so great faith, not even in Israel.
7:10. And they who were sent, being returned to the house, found the servant whole who had been sick.
7:11. And it came to pass afterwards that he went into a city that is called Naim: and there went with him his disciples and a great multitude.
7:12. And when he came nigh to the gate of the city, behold a dead man was carried out, the only son of his mother: and she was a widow. And a great multitude of the city was with her.
7:13. Whom when the Lord had seen, being moved with mercy towards her, he said to her: Weep not.
7:14. And he came near and touched the bier. And they that carried it stood still. And he said: Young man, I say to thee, arise.
7:15. And he that was dead sat up and begun to speak. And he gave him to his mother.
7:16. And there came a fear upon them all: and they glorified God saying: A great prophet is risen up among us: and, God hath visited his people.
7:17. And this rumour of him went forth throughout all Judea and throughout all the country round about.
7:18. And John's disciples told him of all these things.
7:19. And John called to him two of his disciples and sent them to Jesus, saying: Art thou he that art to come? Or look we for another?
7:20. And when the men were come unto him, they said: John the Baptist hath sent us to thee, saying: Art thou he that art to come? Or look we for another?
