Luke Chapter Five

1: And it came to pass, that, as the people pressed upon him to hear the word of God, he stood by the lake of Gennesaret,
 
2: And saw two ships standing by the lake: but the fishermen were gone out of them, and were washing their nets.
 
3: And he entered into one of the ships, which was Simon’s, and prayed him that he would thrust out a little from the land. And he sat down, and taught the people out of the ship.
 
4: Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught.
 
5: And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net.
 
6: And when they had this done, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes: and their net brake.
 
7: And they beckoned unto their partners, which were in the other ship, that they should come and help them. And they came, and filled both the ships, so that they began to sink.
 
8: When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus’ knees, saying, Depart from me; for I am a sinful man, O Lord.
 
9: For he was astonished, and all that were with him, at the draught of the fishes which they had taken:
 
10: And so was also James, and John, the sons of Zebedee, which were partners with Simon. And Jesus said unto Simon, Fear not; from henceforth thou shalt catch men.
 
11: And when they had brought their ships to land, they forsook all, and followed him.
 
12: And it came to pass, when he was in a certain city, behold a man full of leprosy: who seeing Jesus fell on his face, and besought him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.
 
13: And he put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will: be thou clean. And immediately the leprosy departed from him.
 
14: And he charged him to tell no man: but go, and shew thyself to the priest, and offer for thy cleansing, according as Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them.
 
15: But so much the more went there a fame abroad of him: and great multitudes came together to hear, and to be healed by him of their infirmities.
 
16: And he withdrew himself into the wilderness, and prayed.
 
17: And it came to pass on a certain day, as he was teaching, that there were Pharisees and doctors of the law sitting by, which were come out of every town of Galilee, and Judaea, and Jerusalem: and the power of the Lord was present to heal them.
 
18: And, behold, men brought in a bed a man which was taken with a palsy: and they sought means to bring him in, and to lay him before him.
 
19: And when they could not find by what way they might bring him in because of the multitude, they went upon the housetop, and let him down through the tiling with his couch into the midst before Jesus.
 
20: And when he saw their faith, he said unto him, Man, thy sins are forgiven thee.
 
21: And the scribes and the Pharisees began to reason, saying, Who is this which speaketh blasphemies? Who can forgive sins, but God alone?
 
22: But when Jesus perceived their thoughts, he answering said unto them, What reason ye in your hearts?
 
23: Whether is easier, to say, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Rise up and walk?
 
24: But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power upon earth to forgive sins, (he said unto the sick of the palsy,) I say unto thee, Arise, and take up thy couch, and go into thine house.
 
25: And immediately he rose up before them, and took up that whereon he lay, and departed to his own house, glorifying God.
 
26: And they were all amazed, and they glorified God, and were filled with fear, saying, We have seen strange things to day.
 
27: And after these things he went forth, and saw a publican, named Levi, sitting at the receipt of custom: and he said unto him, Follow me.
 
28: And he left all, rose up, and followed him.
 
29: And Levi made him a great feast in his own house: and there was a great company of publicans and of others that sat down with them.
 
30: But their scribes and Pharisees murmured against his disciples, saying, Why do ye eat and drink with publicans and sinners?
 
31: And Jesus answering said unto them, They that are whole need not a physician; but they that are sick.
 
32: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.
 
33: And they said unto him, Why do the disciples of John fast often, and make prayers, and likewise the disciples of the Pharisees; but thine eat and drink?
 
34: And he said unto them, Can ye make the children of the bridechamber fast, while the bridegroom is with them?
 
35: But the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken away from them, and then shall they fast in those days.
 
36: And he spake also a parable unto them; No man putteth a piece of a new garment upon an old; if otherwise, then both the new maketh a rent, and the piece that was taken out of the new agreeth not with the old.
 
37: And no man putteth new wine into old bottles; else the new wine will burst the bottles, and be spilled, and the bottles shall perish.
 
38: But new wine must be put into new bottles; and both are preserved.
 
39: No man also having drunk old wine straightway desireth new: for he saith, The old is better.

Luke Chapter Six

1: And it came to pass on the second sabbath after the first, that he went through the corn fields; and his disciples plucked the ears of corn, and did eat, rubbing them in their hands.
 
2: And certain of the Pharisees said unto them, Why do ye that which is not lawful to do on the sabbath days?
 
3: And Jesus answering them said, Have ye not read so much as this, what David did, when himself was an hungred, and they which were with him;
 
4: How he went into the house of God, and did take and eat the shewbread, and gave also to them that were with him; which it is not lawful to eat but for the priests alone?
 
5: And he said unto them, That the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath.
 
6: And it came to pass also on another sabbath, that he entered into the synagogue and taught: and there was a man whose right hand was withered.
 
7: And the scribes and Pharisees watched him, whether he would heal on the sabbath day; that they might find an accusation against him.
 
8: But he knew their thoughts, and said to the man which had the withered hand, Rise up, and stand forth in the midst. And he arose and stood forth.
 
9: Then said Jesus unto them, I will ask you one thing; Is it lawful on the sabbath days to do good, or to do evil? to save life, or to destroy it?
 
10: And looking round about upon them all, he said unto the man, Stretch forth thy hand. And he did so: and his hand was restored whole as the other.
 
11: And they were filled with madness; and communed one with another what they might do to Jesus.
 
12: And it came to pass in those days, that he went out into a mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God.
 
13: And when it was day, he called unto him his disciples: and of them he chose twelve, whom also he named apostles;
 
14: Simon, (whom he also named Peter,) and Andrew his brother, James and John, Philip and Bartholomew,
 
15: Matthew and Thomas, James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon called Zelotes,
 
16: And Judas the brother of James, and Judas Iscariot, which also was the traitor.
 
17: And he came down with them, and stood in the plain, and the company of his disciples, and a great multitude of people out of all Judaea and Jerusalem, and from the sea coast of Tyre and Sidon, which came to hear him, and to be healed of their diseases;
 
18: And they that were vexed with unclean spirits: and they were healed.
 
19: And the whole multitude sought to touch him: for there went virtue out of him, and healed them all.
 
20: And he lifted up his eyes on his disciples, and said, Blessed be ye poor: for yours is the kingdom of God.
 
21: Blessed are ye that hunger now: for ye shall be filled. Blessed are ye that weep now: for ye shall laugh.
 
22: Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man’s sake.
 
23: Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy: for, behold, your reward is great in heaven: for in the like manner did their fathers unto the prophets.
 
24: But woe unto you that are rich! for ye have received your consolation.
 
25: Woe unto you that are full! for ye shall hunger. Woe unto you that laugh now! for ye shall mourn and weep.
 
26: Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets.
 
27: But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you,
 
28: Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you.
 
29: And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloke forbid not to take thy coat also.
 
30: Give to every man that asketh of thee; and of him that taketh away thy goods ask them not again.
 
31: And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise.
 
32: For if ye love them which love you, what thank have ye? for sinners also love those that love them.
 
33: And if ye do good to them which do good to you, what thank have ye? for sinners also do even the same.
 
34: And if ye lend to them of whom ye hope to receive, what thank have ye? for sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again.
 
35: But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil.
 
36: Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful.
 
37: Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven:
 
38: Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.
 
39: And he spake a parable unto them, Can the blind lead the blind? shall they not both fall into the ditch?
 
40: The disciple is not above his master: but every one that is perfect shall be as his master.
 
41: And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but perceivest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
 
42: Either how canst thou say to thy brother, Brother, let me pull out the mote that is in thine eye, when thou thyself beholdest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, cast out first the beam out of thine own eye, and then shalt thou see clearly to pull out the mote that is in thy brother’s eye.
 
43: For a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
 
44: For every tree is known by his own fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes.
 
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 of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.
 
46: And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?
 
47: Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like:
 
48: He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock.
 
49: But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great.

Leviticus Chapter Eight

1: And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
 
2: Take Aaron and his sons with him, and the garments, and the anointing oil, and a bullock for the sin offering, and two rams, and a basket of unleavened bread;
 
3: And gather thou all the congregation together unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.
 
4: And Moses did as the LORD commanded him; and the assembly was gathered together unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.
 
5: And Moses said unto the congregation, This is the thing which the LORD commanded to be done.
 
6: And Moses brought Aaron and his sons, and washed them with water.
 
7: And he put upon him the coat, and girded him with the girdle, and clothed him with the robe, and put the ephod upon him, and he girded him with the curious girdle of the ephod, and bound it unto him therewith.
 
8: And he put the breastplate upon him: also he put in the breastplate the Urim and the Thummim.
 
9: And he put the mitre upon his head; also upon the mitre, even upon his forefront, did he put the golden plate, the holy crown; as the LORD commanded Moses.
 
10: And Moses took the anointing oil, and anointed the tabernacle and all that was therein, and sanctified them.
 
11: And he sprinkled thereof upon the altar seven times, and anointed the altar and all his vessels, both the laver and his foot, to sanctify them.
 
12: And he poured of the anointing oil upon Aaron’s head, and anointed him, to sanctify him.
 
13: And Moses brought Aaron’s sons, and put coats upon them, and girded them with girdles, and put bonnets upon them; as the LORD commanded Moses.
 
14: And he brought the bullock for the sin offering: and Aaron and his sons laid their hands upon the head of the bullock for the sin offering.
 
15: And he slew it; and Moses took the blood, and put it upon the horns of the altar round about with his finger, and purified the altar, and poured the blood at the bottom of the altar, and sanctified it, to make reconciliation upon it.
 
16: And he took all the fat that was upon the inwards, and caul above the liver, and the two kidneys, and their fat, and Moses burned it upon the altar.
 
17: But the bullock, and his hide, his flesh, and his dung, he burnt with fire without the camp; as the LORD commanded Moses.
 
18: And he brought the ram for the burnt offering: and Aaron and his sons laid their hands upon the head of the ram.
 
19: And he killed it; and Moses sprinkled the blood upon the altar round about.
 
20: And he cut the ram into pieces; and Moses burnt the head, and the pieces, and the fat.
 
21: And he washed the inwards and the legs in water; and Moses burnt the whole ram upon the altar: it was a burnt sacrifice for a sweet savour, and an offering made by fire unto the LORD; as the LORD commanded Moses.
 
22: And he brought the other ram, the ram of consecration: and Aaron and his sons laid their hands upon the head of the ram.
 
23: And he slew it; and Moses took of the blood of it, and put it upon the tip of Aaron’s right ear, and upon the thumb of his right hand, and upon the great toe of his right foot.
 
24: And he brought Aaron’s sons, and Moses put of the blood upon the tip of their right ear, and upon the thumbs of their right hands, and upon the great toes of their right feet: and Moses sprinkled the blood upon the altar round about.
 
25: And he took the fat, and the rump, and all the fat that was upon the inwards, and the caul above the liver, and the two kidneys, and their fat, and the right shoulder:
 
26: And out of the basket of unleavened bread, that was before the LORD, he took one unleavened cake, and a cake of oiled bread, and one wafer, and put them on the fat, and upon the right shoulder:
 
27: And he put all upon Aaron’s hands, and upon his sons’ hands, and waved them for a wave offering before the LORD.
 
28: And Moses took them from off their hands, and burnt them on the altar upon the burnt offering: they were consecrations for a sweet savour: it is an offering made by fire unto the LORD.
 
29: And Moses took the breast, and waved it for a wave offering before the LORD: for of the ram of consecration it was Moses’ part; as the LORD commanded Moses.
 
30: And Moses took of the anointing oil, and of the blood which was upon the altar, and sprinkled it upon Aaron, and upon his garments, and upon his sons, and upon his sons’ garments with him; and sanctified Aaron, and his garments, and his sons, and his sons’ garments with him.
 
31: And Moses said unto Aaron and to his sons, Boil the flesh at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation: and there eat it with the bread that is in the basket of consecrations, as I commanded, saying, Aaron and his sons shall eat it.
 
32: And that which remaineth of the flesh and of the bread shall ye burn with fire.
 
33: And ye shall not go out of the door of the tabernacle of the congregation in seven days, until the days of your consecration be at an end: for seven days shall he consecrate you.
 
34: As he hath done this day, so the LORD hath commanded to do, to make an atonement for you.
 
35: Therefore shall ye abide at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation day and night seven days, and keep the charge of the LORD, that ye die not: for so I am commanded.
 
36: So Aaron and his sons did all things which the LORD commanded by the hand of Moses.

Leviticus Chapter Nine

1: And it came to pass on the eighth day, that Moses called Aaron and his sons, and the elders of Israel;
 
2: And he said unto Aaron, Take thee a young calf for a sin offering, and a ram for a burnt offering, without blemish, and offer them before the LORD.
 
3: And unto the children of Israel thou shalt speak, saying, Take ye a kid of the goats for a sin offering; and a calf and a lamb, both of the first year, without blemish, for a burnt offering;
 
4: Also a bullock and a ram for peace offerings, to sacrifice before the LORD; and a meat offering mingled with oil: for to day the LORD will appear unto you.
 
5: And they brought that which Moses commanded before the tabernacle of the congregation: and all the congregation drew near and stood before the LORD.
 
6: And Moses said, This is the thing which the LORD commanded that ye should do: and the glory of the LORD shall appear unto you.
 
7: And Moses said unto Aaron, Go unto the altar, and offer thy sin offering, and thy burnt offering, and make an atonement for thyself, and for the people: and offer the offering of the people, and make an atonement for them; as the LORD commanded.
 
8: Aaron therefore went unto the altar, and slew the calf of the sin offering, which was for himself.
 
9: And the sons of Aaron brought the blood unto him: and he dipped his finger in the blood, and put it upon the horns of the altar, and poured out the blood at the bottom of the altar:
 
10: But the fat, and the kidneys, and the caul above the liver of the sin offering, he burnt upon the altar; as the LORD commanded Moses.
 
11: And the flesh and the hide he burnt with fire without the camp.
 
12: And he slew the burnt offering; and Aaron’s sons presented unto him the blood, which he sprinkled round about upon the altar.
 
13: And they presented the burnt offering unto him, with the pieces thereof, and the head: and he burnt them upon the altar.
 
14: And he did wash the inwards and the legs, and burnt them upon the burnt offering on the altar.
 
15: And he brought the people’s offering, and took the goat, which was the sin offering for the people, and slew it, and offered it for sin, as the first.
 
16: And he brought the burnt offering, and offered it according to the manner.
 
17: And he brought the meat offering, and took an handful thereof, and burnt it upon the altar, beside the burnt sacrifice of the morning.
 
18: He slew also the bullock and the ram for a sacrifice of peace offerings, which was for the people: and Aaron’s sons presented unto him the blood, which he sprinkled upon the altar round about,
 
19: And the fat of the bullock and of the ram, the rump, and that which covereth the inwards, and the kidneys, and the caul above the liver:
 
20: And they put the fat upon the breasts, and he burnt the fat upon the altar:
 
21: And the breasts and the right shoulder Aaron waved for a wave offering before the LORD; as Moses commanded.
 
22: And Aaron lifted up his hand toward the people, and blessed them, and came down from offering of the sin offering, and the burnt offering, and peace offerings.
 
23: And Moses and Aaron went into the tabernacle of the congregation, and came out, and blessed the people: and the glory of the LORD appeared unto all the people.
 
24: And there came a fire out from before the LORD, and consumed upon the altar the burnt offering and the fat: which when all the people saw, they shouted, and fell on their faces.

Leviticus Chapter Ten

1: And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took either of them his censer, and put fire therein, and put incense thereon, and offered strange fire before the LORD, which he commanded them not.
 
2: And there went out fire from the LORD, and devoured them, and they died before the LORD.
 
3: Then Moses said unto Aaron, This is it that the LORD spake, saying, I will be sanctified in them that come nigh me, and before all the people I will be glorified. And Aaron held his peace.
 
4: And Moses called Mishael and Elzaphan, the sons of Uzziel the uncle of Aaron, and said unto them, Come near, carry your brethren from before the sanctuary out of the camp.
 
5: So they went near, and carried them in their coats out of the camp; as Moses had said.
 
6: And Moses said unto Aaron, and unto Eleazar and unto Ithamar, his sons, Uncover not your heads, neither rend your clothes; lest ye die, and lest wrath come upon all the people: but let your brethren, the whole house of Israel, bewail the burning which the LORD hath kindled.
 
7: And ye shall not go out from the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, lest ye die: for the anointing oil of the LORD is upon you. And they did according to the word of Moses.
 
8: And the LORD spake unto Aaron, saying,
 
9: Do not drink wine nor strong drink, thou, nor thy sons with thee, when ye go into the tabernacle of the congregation, lest ye die: it shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations:
 
10: And that ye may put difference between holy and unholy, and between unclean and clean;
 
11: And that ye may teach the children of Israel all the statutes which the LORD hath spoken unto them by the hand of Moses.
 
12: And Moses spake unto Aaron, and unto Eleazar and unto Ithamar, his sons that were left, Take the meat offering that remaineth of the offerings of the LORD made by fire, and eat it without leaven beside the altar: for it is most holy:
 
13: And ye shall eat it in the holy place, because it is thy due, and thy sons’ due, of the sacrifices of the LORD made by fire: for so I am commanded.
 
14: And the wave breast and heave shoulder shall ye eat in a clean place; thou, and thy sons, and thy daughters with thee: for they be thy due, and thy sons’ due, which are given out of the sacrifices of peace offerings of the children of Israel.
 
15: The heave shoulder and the wave breast shall they bring with the offerings made by fire of the fat, to wave it for a wave offering before the LORD; and it shall be thine, and thy sons’ with thee, by a statute for ever; as the LORD hath commanded.
 
16: And Moses diligently sought the goat of the sin offering, and, behold, it was burnt: and he was angry with Eleazar and Ithamar, the sons of Aaron which were left alive, saying,
 
17: Wherefore have ye not eaten the sin offering in the holy place, seeing it is most holy, and God hath given it you to bear the iniquity of the congregation, to make atonement for them before the LORD?
 
18: Behold, the blood of it was not brought in within the holy place: ye should indeed have eaten it in the holy place, as I commanded.
 
19: And Aaron said unto Moses, Behold, this day have they offered their sin offering and their burnt offering before the LORD; and such things have befallen me: and if I had eaten the sin offering to day, should it have been accepted in the sight of the LORD?
 
20: And when Moses heard that, he was content.

15: The eyes of the LORD are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry.
 
16: The face of the LORD is against them that do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.
 
17: The righteous cry, and the LORD heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles.
 
18: The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.

21: Evil shall slay the wicked: and they that hate the righteous shall be desolate.
 
22: The LORD redeemeth the soul of his servants: and none of them that trust in him shall be desolate.

Proverbs Chapter Twenty Eight

1: The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion.
 
2: For the transgression of a land many are the princes thereof: but by a man of understanding and knowledge the state thereof shall be prolonged.
 
3: A poor man that oppresseth the poor is like a sweeping rain which leaveth no food.
 
4: They that forsake the law praise the wicked: but such as keep the law contend with them.
 
5: Evil men understand not judgment: but they that seek the LORD understand all things.
 
6: Better is the poor that walketh in his uprightness, than he that is perverse in his ways, though he be rich.
 
7: Whoso keepeth the law is a wise son: but he that is a companion of riotous men shameth his father.
 
8: He that by usury and unjust gain increaseth his substance, he shall gather it for him that will pity the poor.
 
9: He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer shall be abomination.
 
10: Whoso causeth the righteous to go astray in an evil way, he shall fall himself into his own pit: but the upright shall have good things in possession.
 
11: The rich man is wise in his own conceit; but the poor that hath understanding searcheth him out.
 
12: When righteous men do rejoice, there is great glory: but when the wicked rise, a man is hidden.
 
13: He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.
 
14: Happy is the man that feareth always: but he that hardeneth his heart shall fall into mischief.
 
15: As a roaring lion, and a ranging bear; so is a wicked ruler over the poor people.

19: He that tilleth his land shall have plenty of bread: but he that followeth after vain persons shall have poverty enough.
 
20: A faithful man shall abound with blessings: but he that maketh haste to be rich shall not be innocent.
 
21: To have respect of persons is not good: for for a piece of bread that man will transgress.
 
22: He that hasteth to be rich hath an evil eye, and considereth not that poverty shall come upon him.
 
23: He that rebuketh a man afterwards shall find more favour than he that flattereth with the tongue.
 
24: Whoso robbeth his father or his mother, and saith, It is no transgression; the same is the companion of a destroyer.
 
25: He that is of a proud heart stirreth up strife: but he that putteth his trust in the LORD shall be made fat.
 
26: He that usteth in his own heart is a fool: but whoso walketh wisely, he shall be delivered.
 
27: He that giveth unto the poor shall not lack: but he that hideth his eyes shall have many a curse.
 
28: When the wicked rise, men hide themselves: but when they perish, the righteous increase.
