and he sent them to Bethlehem, saying, "Go and search diligently for
the child, and when you have found him bring me word, that I too may
come and worship him."
When they had heard the king they went their way; and lo, the star
which they had seen in the East went before them, till it came to rest
over the place where the child was.
and going into the house they saw the child with Mary his mother, and
they fell down and worshiped him. Then, opening their treasures, they
offered him gifts, gold and frankincense and myrrh.
"Rise, take the child and his mother, and go to the land of Israel, for
those who sought the child's life are dead."
And he rose and took the child and his mother, and went to the land of
But when he heard that Archelaus reigned over Judea in place of his
father Herod, he was afraid to go there, and being warned in a dream he
withdrew to the district of Galilee.
And he went and dwelt in a city called Nazareth, that what was spoken
by the prophets might be fulfilled, "He shall be called a Nazarene."
Then went out to him Jerusalem and all Judea and all the region about
And when Jesus was baptized, he went up immediately from the water, and
behold, the heavens were opened and he saw the Spirit of God descending
like a dove, and alighting on him;
and leaving Nazareth he went and dwelt in Capernaum by the sea, in
the territory of Zebulun and Naphtali,
And going on from there he saw two other brothers, James the son of
Zebedee and John his brother, in the boat with Zebedee their father,
mending their nets, and he called them.
And he went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues and
preaching the gospel of the kingdom and healing every disease and every
infirmity among the people.
Seeing the crowds, he went up on the mountain, and when he sat down
his disciples came to him.

your brother, and then come and offer your gift.
Make friends quickly with your accuser, while you are going with him to
court, lest your accuser hand you over to the judge, and the judge to
the guard, and you be put in prison;
And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away;
it is better that you lose one of your members than that your whole
body go into hell.
and if any one forces you to go one mile, go with him two miles.
But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your
Father who is in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will reward
And Jesus said to him, "See that you say nothing to any one; but go,
show yourself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded,
for a proof to the people."
For I am a man under authority, with soldiers under me; and I say to
one, `Go,' and he goes, and to another, `Come,' and he comes, and to my
slave, `Do this,' and he does it."
And to the centurion Jesus said, "Go; be it done for you as you have
believed." And the servant was healed at that very moment.
Now when Jesus saw great crowds around him, he gave orders to go over
to the other side.
And a scribe came up and said to him, "Teacher, I will follow you
wherever you go."
Another of the disciples said to him, "Lord, let me first go and bury
And they went and woke him, saying, "Save, Lord; we are perishing."
And he said to them, "Go." So they came out and went into the swine;
and behold, the whole herd rushed down the steep bank into the sea, and
perished in the waters.
The herdsmen fled, and going into the city they told everything, and
what had happened to the demoniacs.
But that you may know that the Son of man has authority on earth to
forgive sins"--he then said to the paralytic--"Rise, take up your bed
and go home."
And he rose and went home.
Go and learn what this means, `I desire mercy, and not sacrifice.' For
I came not to call the righteous, but sinners."
But when the crowd had been put outside, he went in and took her by the
hand, and the girl arose.
And the report of this went through all that district.
But they went away and spread his fame through all that district.
As they were going away, behold, a dumb demoniac was brought to him.
And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their
synagogues and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every
disease and every infirmity.
These twelve Jesus sent out, charging them, "Go nowhere among the
Gentiles, and enter no town of the Samaritans,
but go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
And preach as you go, saying, `The kingdom of heaven is at hand.'
When they persecute you in one town, flee to the next; for truly, I say
to you, you will not have gone through all the towns of Israel, before
the Son of man comes.
And when Jesus had finished instructing his twelve disciples, he went
on from there to teach and preach in their cities.
And Jesus answered them, "Go and tell John what you hear and see:
As they went away, Jesus began to speak to the crowds concerning
John: "What did you go out into the wilderness to behold? A reed shaken
by the wind?
Why then did you go out? To see a man clothed in soft raiment? Behold,
those who wear soft raiment are in kings' houses.
Why then did you go out? To see a prophet? Yes, I tell you, and more
than a prophet.
At that time Jesus went through the grainfields on the sabbath; his
disciples were hungry, and they began to pluck heads of grain and to

But the Pharisees went out and took counsel against him, how to destroy
"When the unclean spirit has gone out of a man, he passes through
waterless places seeking rest, but he finds none.
Then he goes and brings with him seven other spirits more evil than
himself, and they enter and dwell there; and the last state of that man
becomes worse than the first. So shall it be also with this evil
That same day Jesus went out of the house and sat beside the sea.
And he told them many things in parables, saying: "A sower went out to
but while men were sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the
wheat, and went away.
He said to them, `An enemy has done this.' The servants said to him,
`Then do you want us to go and gather them?'
Then he left the crowds and went into the house. And his disciples
came to him, saying, "Explain to us the parable of the weeds of the

man found and covered up; then in his joy he goes and sells all that he
has and buys that field.
who, on finding one pearl of great value, went and sold all that he had
and bought it.
And when Jesus had finished these parables, he went away from there,
And his disciples came and took the body and buried it; and they went
and told Jesus.
As he went ashore he saw a great throng; and he had compassion on them,
and healed their sick.
When it was evening, the disciples came to him and said, "This is a
lonely place, and the day is now over; send the crowds away to go into
the villages and buy food for themselves."
Jesus said, "They need not go away; you give them something to eat."
Then he made the disciples get into the boat and go before him to the
other side, while he dismissed the crowds.
And after he had dismissed the crowds, he went up on the mountain by
himself to pray. When evening came, he was there alone,
not what goes into the mouth defiles a man, but what comes out of the
mouth, this defiles a man."
Do you not see that whatever goes into the mouth passes into the
stomach, and so passes on?
And Jesus went away from there and withdrew to the district of Tyre
And Jesus went on from there and passed along the Sea of Galilee. And
he went up on the mountain, and sat down there.
And sending away the crowds, he got into the boat and went to the
region of Magadan.
From that time Jesus began to show his disciples that he must go to
Jerusalem and suffer many things from the elders and chief priests and
scribes, and be killed, and on the third day be raised.
When they came to Capernaum, the collectors of the halfshekel tax
went up to Peter and said, "Does not your teacher pay the tax?"
However, not to give offense to them, go to the sea and cast a hook,
and take the first fish that comes up, and when you open its mouth you
will find a shekel; take that and give it to them for me and for
What do you think? If a man has a hundred sheep, and one of them has
gone astray, does he not leave the ninety-nine on the mountains and go
in search of the one that went astray?
And if he finds it, truly, I say to you, he rejoices over it more than
over the ninety-nine that never went astray.
"If your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault, between
you and him alone. If he listens to you, you have gained your brother.
But that same servant, as he went out, came upon one of his fellow
servants who owed him a hundred denarii; and seizing him by the throat
he said, `Pay what you owe.'
He refused and went and put him in prison till he should pay the debt.
When his fellow servants saw what had taken place, they were greatly
distressed, and they went and reported to their lord all that had taken
Now when Jesus had finished these sayings, he went away from Galilee
and entered the region of Judea beyond the Jordan;
And he laid his hands on them and went away.
Jesus said to him, "If you would be perfect, go, sell what you possess
and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come,
When the young man heard this he went away sorrowful; for he had great
Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a

"For the kingdom of heaven is like a householder who went out early
in the morning to hire laborers for his vineyard.
And going out about the third hour he saw others standing idle in the

right I will give you.' So they went.
Going out again about the sixth hour and the ninth hour, he did the
And about the eleventh hour he went out and found others standing; and
he said to them, `Why do you stand here idle all day?'
They said to him, `Because no one has hired us.' He said to them, `You
go into the vineyard too.'
Take what belongs to you, and go; I choose to give to this last as I
give to you.
And as Jesus was going up to Jerusalem, he took the twelve disciples
aside, and on the way he said to them,
"Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man will be
delivered to the chief priests and scribes, and they will condemn him
And as they went out of Jericho, a great crowd followed him.

will find an ass tied, and a colt with her; untie them and bring them
The disciples went and did as Jesus had directed them;
And the crowds that went before him and that followed him shouted,
"Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is he who comes in the name of
the Lord! Hosanna in the highest!"
And leaving them, he went out of the city to Bethany and lodged there.
And seeing a fig tree by the wayside he went to it, and found nothing
on it but leaves only. And he said to it, "May no fruit ever come from
you again!" And the fig tree withered at once.
"What do you think? A man had two sons; and he went to the first and
said, `Son, go and work in the vineyard today.'
And he answered, `I will not'; but afterward he repented and went.
And he went to the second and said the same; and he answered, `I go,
sir,' but did not go.
Which of the two did the will of his father?" They said, "The first."
Jesus said to them, "Truly, I say to you, the tax collectors and the
harlots go into the kingdom of God before you.
"Hear another parable. There was a householder who planted a
vineyard, and set a hedge around it, and dug a wine press in it, and
built a tower, and let it out to tenants, and went into another country.
But they made light of it and went off, one to his farm, another to his
Go therefore to the thoroughfares, and invite to the marriage feast as
many as you find.'
And those servants went out into the streets and gathered all whom they
found, both bad and good; so the wedding hall was filled with guests.
Then the Pharisees went and took counsel how to entangle him in his

"But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because you shut
the kingdom of heaven against men; for you neither enter yourselves,
nor allow those who would enter to go in.
Jesus left the temple and was going away, when his disciples came to
point out to him the buildings of the temple.

So, if they say to you, `Lo, he is in the wilderness,' do not go out;

"Then the kingdom of heaven shall be compared to ten maidens who took
their lamps and went to meet the bridegroom.
And the foolish said to the wise, `Give us some of your oil, for our
lamps are going out.'
But the wise replied, `Perhaps there will not be enough for us and for
you; go rather to the dealers and buy for yourselves.'
And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were
ready went in with him to the marriage feast; and the door was shut.
"For it will be as when a man going on a journey called his servants
and entrusted to them his property;
to one he gave five talents, to another two, to another one, to each
according to his ability. Then he went away.
He who had received the five talents went at once and traded with them;
and he made five talents more.
But he who had received the one talent went and dug in the ground and
hid his master's money.

have what is yours.'

whom the Son of man is betrayed! It would have been better for that man
if he had not been born."
And when they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives.
But after I am raised up, I will go before you to Galilee."
Then Jesus went with them to a place called Gethsemane, and he said
to his disciples, "Sit here, while I go yonder and pray."
And going a little farther he fell on his face and prayed, "My Father,
if it be possible, let this cup pass from me; nevertheless, not as I
will, but as thou wilt."
Again, for the second time, he went away and prayed, "My Father, if
this cannot pass unless I drink it, thy will be done."
So, leaving them again, he went away and prayed for the third time,
saying the same words.
Rise, let us be going; see, my betrayer is at hand."
But Peter followed him at a distance, as far as the courtyard of the
high priest, and going inside he sat with the guards to see the end.
And when he went out to the porch, another maid saw him, and she said
to the bystanders, "This man was with Jesus of Nazareth."
And Peter remembered the saying of Jesus, "Before the cock crows, you
will deny me three times." And he went out and wept bitterly.
And throwing down the pieces of silver in the temple, he departed; and
he went and hanged himself.
As they went out, they came upon a man of Cyrene, Simon by name;
this man they compelled to carry his cross.
and coming out of the tombs after his resurrection they went into the
holy city and appeared to many.
He went to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus. Then Pilate ordered
it to be given to him.
Therefore order the sepulchre to be made secure until the third day,
lest his disciples go and steal him away, and tell the people, `He has
risen from the dead,' and the last fraud will be worse than the first."
Pilate said to them, "You have a guard of soldiers; go, make it as
secure as you can."
So they went and made the sepulchre secure by sealing the stone and
setting a guard.
Now after the sabbath, toward the dawn of the first day of the week,
Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to see the sepulchre.
Then go quickly and tell his disciples that he has risen from the dead,
and behold, he is going before you to Galilee; there you will see him.
Lo, I have told you."
Then Jesus said to them, "Do not be afraid; go and tell my brethren to
go to Galilee, and there they will see me."
While they were going, behold, some of the guard went into the city
and told the chief priests all that had taken place.
Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which
Jesus had directed them.
Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the
name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
And there went out to him all the country of Judea, and all the people
of Jerusalem; and they were baptized by him in the river Jordan,
confessing their sins.
And going on a little farther, he saw James the son of Zebedee and
John his brother, who were in their boat mending the nets.
And they went into Capernaum; and immediately on the sabbath he
entered the synagogue and taught.
And in the morning, a great while before day, he rose and went out to
a lonely place, and there he prayed.
And he said to them, "Let us go on to the next towns, that I may preach
there also; for that is why I came out."
And he went throughout all Galilee, preaching in their synagogues and
casting out demons.
and said to him, "See that you say nothing to any one; but go, show
yourself to the priest, and offer for your cleansing what Moses
commanded, for a proof to the people."
But he went out and began to talk freely about it, and to spread the
news, so that Jesus could no longer openly enter a town, but was out in
the country; and people came to him from every quarter.
"I say to you, rise, take up your pallet and go home."
And he rose, and immediately took up the pallet and went out before
them all; so that they were all amazed and glorified God, saying, "We
never saw anything like this!"
He went out again beside the sea; and all the crowd gathered about
him, and he taught them.
One sabbath he was going through the grainfields; and as they made
their way his disciples began to pluck heads of grain.
The Pharisees went out, and immediately held counsel with the
Herodians against him, how to destroy him.
And he went up on the mountain, and called to him those whom he
desired; and they came to him.
and Judas Iscariot, who betrayed him.
Then he went home;
And when his family heard it, they went out to seize him, for people
were saying, "He is beside himself."
"Listen! A sower went out to sow.
On that day, when evening had come, he said to them, "Let us go
across to the other side."
But he refused, and said to him, "Go home to your friends, and tell
them how much the Lord has done for you, and how he has had mercy on
And he went away and began to proclaim in the Decapolis how much Jesus
had done for him; and all men marveled.
And he went with him.
And a great crowd followed him and thronged about him.
And Jesus, perceiving in himself that power had gone forth from him,
immediately turned about in the crowd, and said, "Who touched my
And he said to her, "Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in
peace, and be healed of your disease."
And they laughed at him. But he put them all outside, and took the
child's father and mother and those who were with him, and went in
where the child was.
He went away from there and came to his own country; and his
disciples followed him.
And he marveled because of their unbelief.
And he went about among the villages teaching.
So they went out and preached that men should repent.
And she went out, and said to her mother, "What shall I ask?" And she
said, "The head of John the baptizer."
And immediately the king sent a soldier of the guard and gave orders to
bring his head. He went and beheaded him in the prison,
And he said to them, "Come away by yourselves to a lonely place, and
rest a while." For many were coming and going, and they had no leisure
even to eat.
And they went away in the boat to a lonely place by themselves.
Now many saw them going, and knew them, and they ran there on foot from
all the towns, and got there ahead of them.
As he went ashore he saw a great throng, and he had compassion on them,
because they were like sheep without a shepherd; and he began to teach
them many things.
send them away, to go into the country and villages round about and buy
themselves something to eat."
But he answered them, "You give them something to eat." And they said
to him, "Shall we go and buy two hundred denarii worth of bread, and
give it to them to eat?"
And he said to them, "How many loaves have you? Go and see." And when
they had found out, they said, "Five, and two fish."
Immediately he made his disciples get into the boat and go before him
to the other side, to Bethsaida, while he dismissed the crowd.
And after he had taken leave of them, he went up on the mountain to
there is nothing outside a man which by going into him can defile him;
but the things which come out of a man are what defile him."
And he said to them, "Then are you also without understanding? Do you
not see that whatever goes into a man from outside cannot defile him,
And from there he arose and went away to the region of Tyre and
Sidon. And he entered a house, and would not have any one know it; yet
he could not be hid.
And he said to her, "For this saying you may go your way; the demon has
left your daughter."
And she went home, and found the child lying in bed, and the demon gone.
Then he returned from the region of Tyre, and went through Sidon to
the Sea of Galilee, through the region of the Decapolis.
And he sent them away; and immediately he got into the boat with his
disciples, and went to the district of Dalmanutha.
And Jesus went on with his disciples, to the villages of Caesarea
Philippi; and on the way he asked his disciples, "Who do men say that
They went on from there and passed through Galilee. And he would not
have any one know it;
And if your hand causes you to sin, cut it off; it is better for you to
enter life maimed than with two hands to go to hell, to the
And he left there and went to the region of Judea and beyond the
Jordan, and crowds gathered to him again; and again, as his custom was,
he taught them.
And Jesus looking upon him loved him, and said to him, "You lack one
thing; go, sell what you have, and give to the poor, and you will have
treasure in heaven; and come, follow me."
At that saying his countenance fell, and he went away sorrowful; for he
had great possessions.
It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a
rich man to enter the kingdom of God."
And they were on the road, going up to Jerusalem, and Jesus was
walking ahead of them; and they were amazed, and those who followed
were afraid. And taking the twelve again, he began to tell them what
was to happen to him,
saying, "Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man will
be delivered to the chief priests and the scribes, and they will
condemn him to death, and deliver him to the Gentiles;
And Jesus said to him, "Go your way; your faith has made you well." And
immediately he received his sight and followed him on the way.
and said to them, "Go into the village opposite you, and immediately as
you enter it you will find a colt tied, on which no one has ever sat;
untie it and bring it.
And they went away, and found a colt tied at the door out in the open
street; and they untied it.
And they told them what Jesus had said; and they let them go.
And those who went before and those who followed cried out, "Hosanna!
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!
And he entered Jerusalem, and went into the temple; and when he had
looked round at everything, as it was already late, he went out to
Bethany with the twelve.
And seeing in the distance a fig tree in leaf, he went to see if he
could find anything on it. When he came to it, he found nothing but
leaves, for it was not the season for figs.
And when evening came they went out of the city.
And he began to speak to them in parables. "A man planted a vineyard,
and set a hedge around it, and dug a pit for the wine press, and built
a tower, and let it out to tenants, and went into another country.
And they tried to arrest him, but feared the multitude, for they
perceived that he had told the parable against them; so they left him
and went away.
And in his teaching he said, "Beware of the scribes, who like to go
about in long robes, and to have salutations in the market places
let him who is on the housetop not go down, nor enter his house, to
take anything away;
It is like a man going on a journey, when he leaves home and puts his
servants in charge, each with his work, and commands the doorkeeper to
be on the watch.
Then Judas Iscariot, who was one of the twelve, went to the chief
priests in order to betray him to them.
And on the first day of Unleavened Bread, when they sacrificed the
passover lamb, his disciples said to him, "Where will you have us go
and prepare for you to eat the passover?"
And he sent two of his disciples, and said to them, "Go into the city,
and a man carrying a jar of water will meet you; follow him,
And the disciples set out and went to the city, and found it as he had
told them; and they prepared the passover.
For the Son of man goes as it is written of him, but woe to that man by
whom the Son of man is betrayed! It would have been better for that man
if he had not been born."
And when they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives.
But after I am raised up, I will go before you to Galilee."
And they went to a place which was called Gethsemane; and he said to
his disciples, "Sit here, while I pray."
And going a little farther, he fell on the ground and prayed that, if
it were possible, the hour might pass from him.
And again he went away and prayed, saying the same words.
Rise, let us be going; see, my betrayer is at hand."
And when he came, he went up to him at once, and said, "Master!" And he
But he denied it, saying, "I neither know nor understand what you
mean." And he went out into the gateway.
Joseph of Arimathea, a respected member of the council, who was also
himself looking for the kingdom of God, took courage and went to
Pilate, and asked for the body of Jesus.
And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother
of James, and Salome, bought spices, so that they might go and anoint
And very early on the first day of the week they went to the tomb when
the sun had risen.
But go, tell his disciples and Peter that he is going before you to
Galilee; there you will see him, as he told you."
And they went out and fled from the tomb; for trembling and
astonishment had come upon them; and they said nothing to any one, for
they were afraid.
She went and told those who had been with him, as they mourned and wept.
And they went back and told the rest, but they did not believe them.
And he said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to
the whole creation.
And they went forth and preached everywhere, while the Lord worked with
them and confirmed the message by the signs that attended it. Amen.
and he will go before him in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn
the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the
wisdom of the just, to make ready for the Lord a people prepared."
And when his time of service was ended, he went to his home.
In those days Mary arose and went with haste into the hill country,
to a city of Judah,
And you, child, will be called the prophet of the Most High; for you
will go before the Lord to prepare his ways,
In those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the
world should be enrolled.
And all went to be enrolled, each to his own city.
And Joseph also went up from Galilee, from the city of Nazareth, to
Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was
of the house and lineage of David,
When the angels went away from them into heaven, the shepherds said
to one another, "Let us go over to Bethlehem and see this thing that
has happened, which the Lord has made known to us."
And they went with haste, and found Mary and Joseph, and the babe lying
in a manger.
Now his parents went to Jerusalem every year at the feast of the
And when he was twelve years old, they went up according to custom;
but supposing him to be in the company they went a day's journey, and
they sought him among their kinsfolk and acquaintances;

them; and his mother kept all these things in her heart.

And he went down to Capernaum, a city of Galilee. And he was
teaching them on the sabbath;
And reports of him went out into every place in the surrounding region.

people sought him and came to him, and would have kept him from leaving
And he saw two boats by the lake; but the fishermen had gone out of
them and were washing their nets.
And he charged him to tell no one; but "go and show yourself to the
priest, and make an offering for your cleansing, as Moses commanded,
for a proof to the people."
But so much the more the report went abroad concerning him; and great
multitudes gathered to hear and to be healed of their infirmities.
but finding no way to bring him in, because of the crowd, they went up
on the roof and let him down with his bed through the tiles into the
midst before Jesus.
But that you may know that the Son of man has authority on earth to
forgive sins"--he said to the man who was paralyzed--"I say to you,
rise, take up your bed and go home."
And immediately he rose before them, and took up that on which he lay,
and went home, glorifying God.
After this he went out, and saw a tax collector, named Levi, sitting
at the tax office; and he said to him, "Follow me."
On a sabbath, while he was going through the grainfields, his
disciples plucked and ate some heads of grain, rubbing them in their
In these days he went out to the mountain to pray; and all night he
continued in prayer to God.
And Jesus went with them. When he was not far from the house, the
centurion sent friends to him, saying to him, "Lord, do not trouble
yourself, for I am not worthy to have you come under my roof;
For I am a man set under authority, with soldiers under me: and I say
to one, `Go,' and he goes; and to another, `Come,' and he comes; and to
my slave, `Do this,' and he does it."
Soon afterward he went to a city called Nain, and his disciples and
a great crowd went with him.
And he answered them, "Go and tell John what you have seen and heard:
the blind receive their sight, the lame walk, lepers are cleansed, and
the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, the poor have good news preached
When the messengers of John had gone, he began to speak to the crowds
concerning John: "What did you go out into the wilderness to behold? A
reed shaken by the wind?
What then did you go out to see? A man clothed in soft clothing?
Behold, those who are gorgeously appareled and live in luxury are in
What then did you go out to see? A prophet? Yes, I tell you, and more
than a prophet.
One of the Pharisees asked him to eat with him, and he went into the
Pharisee's house, and took his place at table.
And he said to the woman, "Your faith has saved you; go in peace."
Soon afterward he went on through cities and villages, preaching and
bringing the good news of the kingdom of God. And the twelve were with
and also some women who had been healed of evil spirits and
infirmities: Mary, called Magdalene, from whom seven demons had gone
"A sower went out to sow his seed; and as he sowed, some fell along the
path, and was trodden under foot, and the birds of the air devoured it.
And as for what fell among the thorns, they are those who hear, but as
they go on their way they are choked by the cares and riches and
pleasures of life, and their fruit does not mature.
One day he got into a boat with his disciples, and he said to them,
"Let us go across to the other side of the lake." So they set out,
And they went and woke him, saying, "Master, Master, we are perishing!"
And he awoke and rebuked the wind and the raging waves; and they
ceased, and there was a calm.
Then people went out to see what had happened, and they came to Jesus,
and found the man from whom the demons had gone, sitting at the feet of
Jesus, clothed and in his right mind; and they were afraid.
The man from whom the demons had gone begged that he might be with him;
but he sent him away, saying,
"Return to your home, and declare how much God has done for you." And
he went away, proclaiming throughout the whole city how much Jesus had
done for him.
for he had an only daughter, about twelve years of age, and she was
As he went, the people pressed round him.
But Jesus said, "Some one touched me; for I perceive that power has
gone forth from me."
And he said to her, "Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in
And they departed and went through the villages, preaching the gospel
and healing everywhere.
Now the day began to wear away; and the twelve came and said to him,
"Send the crowd away, to go into the villages and country round about,
to lodge and get provisions; for we are here in a lonely place."
But he said to them, "You give them something to eat." They said, "We
have no more than five loaves and two fish--unless we are to go and buy
food for all these people."
Now about eight days after these sayings he took with him Peter and
John and James, and went up on the mountain to pray.
When the days drew near for him to be received up, he set his face to
go to Jerusalem.
And he sent messengers ahead of him, who went and entered a village of
the Samaritans, to make ready for him;
And they went on to another village.
As they were going along the road, a man said to him, "I will follow
you wherever you go."
To another he said, "Follow me." But he said, "Lord, let me first go
and bury my father."
But he said to him, "Leave the dead to bury their own dead; but as for
you, go and proclaim the kingdom of God."
Go your way; behold, I send you out as lambs in the midst of wolves.
And remain in the same house, eating and drinking what they provide,
for the laborer deserves his wages; do not go from house to house.
But whenever you enter a town and they do not receive you, go into its
streets and say,
Jesus replied, "A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and he
fell among robbers, who stripped him and beat him, and departed,
leaving him half dead.
Now by chance a priest was going down that road; and when he saw him he
passed by on the other side.
and went to him and bound up his wounds, pouring on oil and wine; then
he set him on his own beast and brought him to an inn, and took care of
He said, "The one who showed mercy on him." And Jesus said to him, "Go
and do likewise."
Now as they went on their way, he entered a village; and a woman
named Martha received him into her house.
But Martha was distracted with much serving; and she went to him and
said, "Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me to serve alone?
Tell her then to help me."
And he said to them, "Which of you who has a friend will go to him at
midnight and say to him, `Friend, lend me three loaves;
Now he was casting out a demon that was dumb; when the demon had gone
out, the dumb man spoke, and the people marveled.
"When the unclean spirit has gone out of a man, he passes through
waterless places seeking rest; and finding none he says, `I will return
to my house from which I came.'
Then he goes and brings seven other spirits more evil than himself, and
they enter and dwell there; and the last state of that man becomes
worse than the first."
While he was speaking, a Pharisee asked him to dine with him; so he
went in and sat at table.
As he went away from there, the scribes and the Pharisees began to
press him hard, and to provoke him to speak of many things,
As you go with your accuser before the magistrate, make an effort to
settle with him on the way, lest he drag you to the judge, and the
judge hand you over to the officer, and the officer put you in prison.
He went on his way through towns and villages, teaching, and
journeying toward Jerusalem.
And he said to them, "Go and tell that fox, `Behold, I cast out demons
and perform cures today and tomorrow, and the third day I finish my

following; for it cannot be that a prophet should perish away from
One sabbath when he went to dine at the house of a ruler who belonged
to the Pharisees, they were watching him.
But they were silent. Then he took him and healed him, and let him go.
But when you are invited, go and sit in the lowest place, so that when
your host comes he may say to you, `Friend, go up higher'; then you
will be honored in the presence of all who sit at table with you.
But they all alike began to make excuses. The first said to him, `I
have bought a field, and I must go out and see it; I pray you, have me
And another said, `I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to examine
them; I pray you, have me excused.'
So the servant came and reported this to his master. Then the
householder in anger said to his servant, `Go out quickly to the
streets and lanes of the city, and bring in the poor and maimed and
blind and lame.'
And the master said to the servant, `Go out to the highways and hedges,
and compel people to come in, that my house may be filled.
Or what king, going to encounter another king in war, will not sit down

who sent him into his fields to feed swine.

other; for every one who exalts himself will be humbled, but he who
humbles himself will be exalted."
For it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for
a rich man to enter the kingdom of God."
And taking the twelve, he said to them, "Behold, we are going up to
Jerusalem, and everything that is written of the Son of man by the
prophets will be accomplished.
and hearing a multitude going by, he inquired what this meant.
And when they saw it they all murmured, "He has gone in to be the guest
of a man who is a sinner."
He said therefore, "A nobleman went into a far country to receive a
kingdom and then return.
And when he had said this, he went on ahead, going up to Jerusalem.

might betray him to them.
So Jesus sent Peter and John, saying, "Go and prepare the passover for
us, that we may eat it."
And they went, and found it as he had told them; and they prepared the

and the disciples followed him.
And he went out and wept bitterly.
This man went to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus.
But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they went to the
tomb, taking the spices which they had prepared.
but when they went in they did not find the body.
That very day two of them were going to a village named Emmaus,
about seven miles from Jerusalem,
While they were talking and discussing together, Jesus himself drew
near and went with them.
Some of those who were with us went to the tomb, and found it just as
the women had said; but him they did not see."
So they drew near to the village to which they were going. He
appeared to be going further,
but they constrained him, saying, "Stay with us, for it is toward
evening and the day is now far spent." So he went in to stay with them.
The next day Jesus decided to go to Galilee. And he found Philip and
said to him, "Follow me."
After this he went down to Capernaum, with his mother and his
brothers and his disciples; and there they stayed for a few days.
The Passover of the Jews was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
The wind blows where it wills, and you hear the sound of it, but you do
not know whence it comes or whither it goes; so it is with every one
who is born of the Spirit."
After this Jesus and his disciples went into the land of Judea; there
he remained with them and baptized.
And they came to John, and said to him, "Rabbi, he who was with you
beyond the Jordan, to whom you bore witness, here he is, baptizing, and
all are going to him."
For his disciples had gone away into the city to buy food.
Jesus said to her, "Go, call your husband, and come here."
So the woman left her water jar, and went away into the city, and said
to the people,

is the Sea of Tiberi-as.
Jesus went up on the mountain, and there sat down with his disciples.
When evening came, his disciples went down to the sea,
Then they were glad to take him into the boat, and immediately the boat
was at the land to which they were going.

saw that there had been only one boat there, and that Jesus had not
entered the boat with his disciples, but that his disciples had gone

Judea, because the Jews sought to kill him.
So his brothers said to him, "Leave here and go to Judea, that your
disciples may see the works you are doing.
Go to the feast yourselves; I am not going up to this feast, for my
time has not yet fully come."
But after his brothers had gone up to the feast, then he also went
up, not publicly but in private.
About the middle of the feast Jesus went up into the temple and
Jesus then said, "I shall be with you a little longer, and then I go to
him who sent me;
The Jews said to one another, "Where does this man intend to go that we
shall not find him? Does he intend to go to the Dispersion among the
Greeks and teach the Greeks?
The officers then went back to the chief priests and Pharisees, who
said to them, "Why did you not bring him?"
Nicodemus, who had gone to him before, and who was one of them, said
They went each to his own house,
but Jesus went to the Mount of Olives.
But when they heard it, they went away, one by one, beginning with the
eldest, and Jesus was left alone with the woman standing before him.
She said, "No one, Lord." And Jesus said, "Neither do I condemn you;
go, and do not sin again."
Jesus answered, "Even if I do bear witness to myself, my testimony is
true, for I know whence I have come and whither I am going, but you do
not know whence I come or whither I am going.
Again he said to them, "I go away, and you will seek me and die in
your sin; where I am going, you cannot come."
Then said the Jews, "Will he kill himself, since he says, `Where I am
going, you cannot come'?"
So they took up stones to throw at him; but Jesus hid himself, and went
out of the temple.

He went away again across the Jordan to the place where John at first
baptized, and there he remained.
Then after this he said to the disciples, "Let us go into Judea again."
The disciples said to him, "Rabbi, the Jews were but now seeking to
stone you, and are you going there again?"
Thus he spoke, and then he said to them, "Our friend Lazarus has
fallen asleep, but I go to awake him out of sleep."
and for your sake I am glad that I was not there, so that you may
believe. But let us go to him."
Thomas, called the Twin, said to his fellow disciples, "Let us also go,
that we may die with him."
When Martha heard that Jesus was coming, she went and met him, while
Mary sat in the house.
When she had said this, she went and called her sister Mary, saying
quietly, "The Teacher is here and is calling for you."
And when she heard it, she rose quickly and went to him.
When the Jews who were with her in the house, consoling her, saw Mary
rise quickly and go out, they followed her, supposing that she was
going to the tomb to weep there.
The dead man came out, his hands and feet bound with bandages, and his
face wrapped with a cloth. Jesus said to them, "Unbind him, and let him
but some of them went to the Pharisees and told them what Jesus had
If we let him go on thus, every one will believe in him, and the Romans
will come and destroy both our holy place and our nation."
Jesus therefore no longer went about openly among the Jews, but went
from there to the country near the wilderness, to a town called
Ephraim; and there he stayed with the disciples.
Now the Passover of the Jews was at hand, and many went up from the
country to Jerusalem before the Passover, to purify themselves.
because on account of him many of the Jews were going away and
believing in Jesus.
So they took branches of palm trees and went out to meet him, crying,
"Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord, even the
King of Israel!"
The reason why the crowd went to meet him was that they heard he had
done this sign.
The Pharisees then said to one another, "You see that you can do
nothing; look, the world has gone after him."
Now among those who went up to worship at the feast were some Greeks.

And you know the way where I am going."
Thomas said to him, "Lord, we do not know where you are going; how can
we know the way?"
"Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in me will also do the
works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I go
to the Father.

loved me, you would have rejoiced, because I go to the Father; for the
Father is greater than I.
but I do as the Father has commanded me, so that the world may know
that I love the Father. Rise, let us go hence.
You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you
should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide; so that
whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you.
But now I am going to him who sent me; yet none of you asks me, `Where
are you going?'
Nevertheless I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go
away, for if I do not go away, the Counselor will not come to you; but

Some of his disciples said to one another, "What is this that he says
to us, `A little while, and you will not see me, and again a little
while, and you will see me'; and, `because I go to the Father'?"
I came from the Father and have come into the world; again, I am
leaving the world and going to the Father."

So Pilate went out to them and said, "What accusation do you bring
against this man?"
Pilate said to him, "What is truth?"
After he had said this, he went out to the Jews again, and told them,
"I find no crime in him.
Pilate went out again, and said to them, "See, I am bringing him out to
you, that you may know that I find no crime in him."
So they took Jesus, and he went out, bearing his own cross, to the
place called the place of a skull, which is called in Hebrew Golgotha.
So she ran, and went to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one
whom Jesus loved, and said to them, "They have taken the Lord out of
the tomb, and we do not know where they have laid him."
Peter then came out with the other disciple, and they went toward the
and stooping to look in, he saw the linen cloths lying there, but he
did not go in.
Then Simon Peter came, following him, and went into the tomb; he saw
the linen cloths lying,
Then the other disciple, who reached the tomb first, also went in, and
he saw and believed;
Then the disciples went back to their homes.
Jesus said to her, "Do not hold me, for I have not yet ascended to the
Father; but go to my brethren and say to them, I am ascending to my
Father and your Father, to my God and your God."

and she told them that he had said these things to her.
Simon Peter said to them, "I am going fishing." They said to him, "We
will go with you." They went out and got into the boat; but that night
they caught nothing.
So Simon Peter went aboard and hauled the net ashore, full of large
fish, a hundred and fifty-three of them; and although there were so
many, the net was not torn.
Truly, truly, I say to you, when you were young, you girded yourself
and walked where you would; but when you are old, you will stretch out
your hands, and another will gird you and carry you where you do not
wish to go."
Peter turned and saw following them the disciple whom Jesus loved,
who had lain close to his breast at the supper and had said, "Lord, who
is it that is going to betray you?"

conferred with one another,
And when they had further threatened them, they let them go, finding no
way to punish them, because of the people; for all men praised God for
what had happened.

them, Paul and Barnabas and some of the others were appointed to go up
to Jerusalem to the apostles and the elders about this question.
So when they were sent off, they went down to Antioch; and having
gathered the congregation together, they delivered the letter.
But Paul thought best not to take with them one who had withdrawn from
them in Pamphylia, and had not gone with them to the work.
And he went through Syria and Cilicia, strengthening the churches.
As they went on their way through the cities, they delivered to them

Macedonia, concluding that God had called us to preach the gospel to
and on the sabbath day we went outside the gate to the riverside, where
we supposed there was a place of prayer; and we sat down and spoke to
the women who had come together.
As we were going to the place of prayer, we were met by a slave girl
who had a spirit of divination and brought her owners much gain by
But when her owners saw that their hope of gain was gone, they seized
Paul and Silas and dragged them into the market place before the rulers;
But when it was day, the magistrates sent the police, saying, "Let
those men go."
And the jailer reported the words to Paul, saying, "The magistrates
have sent to let you go; now therefore come out and go in peace."
So they went out of the prison, and visited Lydia; and when they had
seen the brethren, they exhorted them and departed.

them from the scriptures,
And when they had taken security from Jason and the rest, they let them
The brethren immediately sent Paul and Silas away by night to
Beroea; and when they arrived they went into the Jewish synagogue.
So Paul went out from among them.
After this he left Athens and went to Corinth.
And he found a Jew named Aquila, a native of Pontus, lately come from
Italy with his wife Priscilla, because Claudius had commanded all the
Jews to leave Rome. And he went to see them;
And when they opposed and reviled him, he shook out his garments and
said to them, "Your blood be upon your heads! I am innocent. From now
on I will go to the Gentiles."
And he left there and went to the house of a man named Titius Justus, a
worshiper of God; his house was next door to the synagogue.
And they came to Ephesus, and he left them there; but he himself went
into the synagogue and argued with the Jews.
When he had landed at Caesarea, he went up and greeted the church,
and then went down to Antioch.
After spending some time there he departed and went from place to place
through the region of Galatia and Phrygia, strengthening all the
Now after these events Paul resolved in the Spirit to pass through
Macedonia and Achaia and go to Jerusalem, saying, "After I have been
there, I must also see Rome."
Paul wished to go in among the crowd, but the disciples would not let

encouragement, he came to Greece.
These went on and were waiting for us at Troas,
But Paul went down and bent over him, and embracing him said, "Do not
be alarmed, for his life is in him."
And when Paul had gone up and had broken bread and eaten, he conversed
with them a long while, until daybreak, and so departed.
But going ahead to the ship, we set sail for Assos, intending to take
Paul aboard there; for so he had arranged, intending himself to go by
And now, behold, I am going to Jerusalem, bound in the Spirit, not
knowing what shall befall me there;
And now, behold, I know that all you among whom I have gone preaching
the kingdom will see my face no more.
And having found a ship crossing to Phoenicia, we went aboard, and set
And having sought out the disciples, we stayed there for seven days.
Through the Spirit they told Paul not to go on to Jerusalem.
And when our days there were ended, we departed and went on our
journey; and they all, with wives and children, brought us on our way
till we were outside the city; and kneeling down on the beach we prayed
and bade one another farewell.
Then we went on board the ship, and they returned home.
When we heard this, we and the people there begged him not to go up to
After these days we made ready and went up to Jerusalem.
And some of the disciples from Caesarea went with us, bringing us to
the house of Mnason of Cyprus, an early disciple, with whom we should
On the following day Paul went in with us to James; and all the elders
Then Paul took the men, and the next day he purified himself with them
and went into the temple, to give notice when the days of purification
would be fulfilled and the offering presented for every one of them.
And I said, `What shall I do, Lord?' And the Lord said to me, `Rise,
and go into Damascus, and there you will be told all that is appointed
for you to do.'
When the centurion heard that, he went to the tribune and said to him,
"What are you about to do? For this man is a Roman citizen."
And when the dissension became violent, the tribune, afraid that Paul
would be torn in pieces by them, commanded the soldiers to go down and
take him by force from among them and bring him into the barracks.
And they went to the chief priests and elders, and said, "We have
strictly bound ourselves by an oath to taste no food till we have
You therefore, along with the council, give notice now to the tribune
to bring him down to you, as though you were going to determine his
case more exactly. And we are ready to kill him before he comes near."
Now the son of Paul's sister heard of their ambush; so he went and
entered the barracks and told Paul.
The tribune took him by the hand, and going aside asked him privately,
"What is it that you have to tell me?"
And he said, "The Jews have agreed to ask you to bring Paul down to the
council tomorrow, as though they were going to inquire somewhat more
closely about him.
Then he called two of the centurions and said, "At the third hour of
the night get ready two hundred soldiers with seventy horsemen and two
hundred spearmen to go as far as Caesarea.
And on the morrow they returned to the barracks, leaving the horsemen
to go on with him.
As you may ascertain, it is not more than twelve days since I went up
to worship at Jerusalem;
And as he argued about justice and self-control and future judgment,
Felix was alarmed and said, "Go away for the present; when I have an
opportunity I will summon you."
Now when Festus had come into his province, after three days he went
up to Jerusalem from Caesarea.
Festus replied that Paul was being kept at Caesarea, and that he
himself intended to go there shortly.
"So," said he, "let the men of authority among you go down with me, and
if there is anything wrong about the man, let them accuse him."
When he had stayed among them not more than eight or ten days, he
went down to Caesarea; and the next day he took his seat on the
tribunal and ordered Paul to be brought.
And when he had come, the Jews who had gone down from Jerusalem stood
about him, bringing against him many serious charges which they could
But Festus, wishing to do the Jews a favor, said to Paul, "Do you wish
to go up to Jerusalem, and there be tried on these charges before me?"
Then Festus, when he had conferred with his council, answered, "You
have appealed to Caesar; to Caesar you shall go."
Being at a loss how to investigate these questions, I asked whether he
wished to go to Jerusalem and be tried there regarding them.
The next day we put in at Sidon; and Julius treated Paul kindly, and
gave him leave to go to his friends and be cared for.
We sailed slowly for a number of days, and arrived with difficulty off
Cnidus, and as the wind did not allow us to go on, we sailed under the
lee of Crete off Salmone.
As much time had been lost, and the voyage was already dangerous
because the fast had already gone by, Paul advised them,
Then the soldiers cut away the ropes of the boat, and let it go.
`Go to this people, and say, You shall indeed hear but never
understand, and you shall indeed see but never perceive.
All have turned aside, together they have gone wrong; no one does good,
not even one."
But I ask, have they not heard? Indeed they have; for
"Their voice has gone out to all the earth, and their words to the
ends of the world."
the night is far gone, the day is at hand. Let us then cast off the
works of darkness and put on the armor of light;
I hope to see you in passing as I go to Spain, and to be sped on my
journey there by you, once I have enjoyed your company for a little.
At present, however, I am going to Jerusalem with aid for the saints.
When therefore I have completed this, and have delivered to them what
has been raised, I shall go on by way of you to Spain;
I have applied all this to myself and Apollos for your benefit,
brethren, that you may learn by us not to go beyond what is written,
that none of you may be puffed up in favor of one against another.
not at all meaning the immoral of this world, or the greedy and
robbers, or idolaters, since then you would need to go out of the world.
When one of you has a grievance against a brother, does he dare go to
law before the unrighteous instead of the saints?
but brother goes to law against brother, and that before unbelievers?
If one of the unbelievers invites you to dinner and you are disposed to
go, eat whatever is set before you without raising any question on the
ground of conscience.
For in eating, each one goes ahead with his own meal, and one is hungry
and another is drunk.
If it seems advisable that I should go also, they will accompany me.
and perhaps I will stay with you or even spend the winter, so that you
may speed me on my journey, wherever I go.
but my mind could not rest because I did not find my brother Titus
there. So I took leave of them and went on to Macedonia.
And his heart goes out all the more to you, as he remembers the
obedience of you all, and the fear and trembling with which you
For he not only accepted our appeal, but being himself very earnest he
is going to you of his own accord.
So I thought it necessary to urge the brethren to go on to you before
me, and arrange in advance for this gift you have promised, so that it
may be ready not as an exaction but as a willing gift.
I must boast; there is nothing to be gained by it, but I will go on
to visions and revelations of the Lord.
I urged Titus to go, and sent the brother with him. Did Titus take
advantage of you? Did we not act in the same spirit? Did we not take
the same steps?
nor did I go up to Jerusalem to those who were apostles before me, but
I went away into Arabia; and again I returned to Damascus.
Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to visit Cephas, and
remained with him fifteen days.
Then I went into the regions of Syria and Cilicia.
Then after fourteen years I went up again to Jerusalem with Barnabas,
taking Titus along with me.
I went up by revelation; and I laid before them (but privately before
those who were of repute) the gospel which I preach among the Gentiles,
lest somehow I should be running or had run in vain.
and when they perceived the grace that was given to me, James and
Cephas and John, who were reputed to be pillars, gave to me and
Barnabas the right hand of fellowship, that we should go to the
Gentiles and they to the circumcised;
Be angry but do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger,
I hope therefore to send him just as soon as I see how it will go with
For not only has the word of the Lord sounded forth from you in
Macedonia and Achaia, but your faith in God has gone forth
everywhere, so that we need not say anything.
As I urged you when I was going to Macedonia, remain at Ephesus that
you may charge certain persons not to teach any different doctrine,
while evil men and impostors will go on from bad to worse, deceivers
For Demas, in love with this present world, has deserted me and gone to
Thessalonica; Crescens has gone to Galatia, Titus to Dalmatia.
Therefore I was provoked with that generation, and said, `They always
go astray in their hearts; they have not known my ways.'
Therefore let us leave the elementary doctrine of Christ and go on to
maturity, not laying again a foundation of repentance from dead works
and of faith toward God,
where Jesus has gone as a forerunner on our behalf, having become a
high priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.
These preparations having thus been made, the priests go continually
into the outer tent, performing their ritual duties;
but into the second only the high priest goes, and he but once a year,
and not without taking blood which he offers for himself and for the
errors of the people.
By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to a place which
he was to receive as an inheritance; and he went out, not knowing where
he was to go.
If they had been thinking of that land from which they had gone out,
they would have had opportunity to return.
They were stoned, they were sawn in two, they were killed with the
sword; they went about in skins of sheep and goats, destitute,
Therefore let us go forth to him outside the camp and bear the abuse he
for he observes himself and goes away and at once forgets what he was
and one of you says to them, "Go in peace, be warmed and filled,"
without giving them the things needed for the body, what does it profit?
Come now, you who say, "Today or tomorrow we will go into such and
such a town and spend a year there and trade and get gain";
in which he went and preached to the spirits in prison,
who has gone into heaven and is at the right hand of God, with angels,
authorities, and powers subject to him.
Forsaking the right way they have gone astray; they have followed the
way of Balaam, the son of Beor, who loved gain from wrongdoing,
But he who hates his brother is in the darkness and walks in the
darkness, and does not know where he is going, because the darkness has
blinded his eyes.
They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of
us, they would have continued with us; but they went out, that it might
be plain that they all are not of us.
Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see
whether they are of God; for many false prophets have gone out into the
For many deceivers have gone out into the world, men who will not
acknowledge the coming of Jesus Christ in the flesh; such a one is the
deceiver and the antichrist.
Any one who goes ahead and does not abide in the doctrine of Christ
does not have God; he who abides in the doctrine has both the Father
and the Son.
Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in
health; I know that it is well with your soul.
He who conquers, I will make him a pillar in the temple of my God;
never shall he go out of it, and I will write on him the name of my
God, and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem which comes
down from my God out of heaven, and my own new name.
and he went and took the scroll from the right hand of him who was
seated on the throne.
And I saw, and behold, a white horse, and its rider had a bow; and a
crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer.
Then the voice which I had heard from heaven spoke to me again,
saying, "Go, take the scroll which is open in the hand of the angel who
is standing on the sea and on the land."
So I went to the angel and told him to give me the little scroll; and
he said to me, "Take it and eat; it will be bitter to your stomach, but
sweet as honey in your mouth."
Then they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, "Come up
hither!" And in the sight of their foes they went up to heaven in a
Then the dragon was angry with the woman, and went off to make war on
the rest of her offspring, on those who keep the commandments of God
and bear testimony to Jesus. And he stood on the sand of the sea.
If any one is to be taken captive, to captivity he goes; if any one
slays with the sword, with the sword must he be slain. Here is a call
for the endurance and faith of the saints.
It is these who have not defiled themselves with women, for they are
chaste; it is these who follow the Lamb wherever he goes; these have
been redeemed from mankind as first fruits for God and the Lamb,
And the smoke of their torment goes up for ever and ever; and they have
no rest, day or night, these worshipers of the beast and its image, and
whoever receives the mark of its name."
Then I heard a loud voice from the temple telling the seven angels,
"Go and pour out on the earth the seven bowls of the wrath of God."
So the first angel went and poured his bowl on the earth, and foul
and evil sores came upon the men who bore the mark of the beast and
worshiped its image.
for they are demonic spirits, performing signs, who go abroad to the
kings of the whole world, to assemble them for battle on the great day
of God the Almighty.
("Lo, I am coming like a thief! Blessed is he who is awake, keeping his
garments that he may not go naked and be seen exposed!")
The beast that you saw was, and is not, and is to ascend from the
bottomless pit and go to perdition; and the dwellers on earth whose
names have not been written in the book of life from the foundation of
the world, will marvel to behold the beast, because it was and is not
and is to come.
As for the beast that was and is not, it is an eighth but it belongs to
the seven, and it goes to perdition.
"The fruit for which thy soul longed has gone from thee, and all thy
dainties and thy splendor are lost to thee, never to be found again!"
Once more they cried, "Hallelujah! The smoke from her goes up for ever
