The book of the generation of A1YHWH B45haMashiach, the son (descendant) of Dawid, the son (descendant) of A11Avraham.
2 Avraham begat A12Isaac (Yitschaq); and Isaac (Yitschaq) begat Jacob (Yaaqov); and A14Jacob (Yaaqov) begat A19Judah (Yehudah) and his brethren;
3 And Judah (Yehudah) begat Phares (Perets) and Zara of Thamar; and Phares (Perets) begat Esrom (Chetsron); and Esrom (Chetsron) begat Aram;
4 And Aram begat Aminadab; and Aminadab begat Naasson; and Naasson begat Salmon;
5 And Salmon begat Boaz of Rachab; and Boaz begat Obed of Ruth; and Obed begat A34Jesse (Yishai);
6 And Jesse (Yishai) begat Dawid the king; and Dawid the king begat A39Solomon (Shelomoh) of her that had been the wife of Urias (Uriyah);
7 And Solomon (Shelomoh) begat A40Roboam (Rechavam); and Roboam (Rechavam) begat Abia (Aviyah); and Abia (Aviyah) begat Asa;
8 And Asa begat Josaphat (Yehoshafat); and Josaphat (Yehoshafat) begat Yoram; and Yoram begat Orias (Uzziyah);
9 And Orias (Uzziyah) begat Joatham (Yotam); and Joatham (Yotam) begat Achaz; and Achaz begat A44Hezekiah (Chizqiyahu);
10 And Hezekiah (Chizqiyahu) begat A28Manasseh (Menashsheh); and Manasseh (Menashsheh) begat Amon; and Amon begat Josias (Yoshiyahu);
11 And Josias (Yoshiyahu) begat Jechonias (Yekonyah) and his brethren, about the time they were carried away to Babylon (Bavel);
12 And after they were brought to Babylon (Bavel), Jechonias (Yekonyah) begat Shealtiel; and Shealtiel begat Zerubbabel;
13 And Zerubbabel begat Avihud; and Avihud begat Eliakim; and Eliakim begat Azzur;
14 And Azzur begat Sadoc; and Sadoc begat Achim; and Achim begat Eliud;
15 And Eliud begat Eleazar; and Eleazar begat Mattan; and Mattan begat Jacob (Yaaqov);
16 And Jacob (Yaaqov) begat A26Joseph (Yosef) the husband of Mary (Miryam), of whom was born A1YHWH, who is called the Messiah (haMashiach).
17 So all the generations from Avraham to Dawid are fourteen generations; and from Dawid until the carrying away into Babylon (Bavel) are fourteen generations; and from the carrying away into Babylon (Bavel) unto Messiah (Mashiach) are fourteen generations.
18 Now the birth of YHWH haMashiach was on this wise: When as His mother Mary (Miryam) was espoused to Joseph (Yosef), before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Spirit (Ruach haQodesh).
19 Then Joseph (Yosef) her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privily.
20 But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of A1יהוה appeared unto him in a dream, saying, “Joseph (Yosef), you son (descendant) of Dawid, fear not to take unto you Mary (Miryam) your wife; for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit (Ruach haQodesh).
21 And she shall bring forth a son, and you shalt call His name A1YHWH (Yahwah); for He shall save His people from their sins.
22 Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of יהוה by the prophet, saying,
23 “Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call His name “B48Immanu El”, which is being interpreted: “God with us.” – Isa. 7:14, 9:6
24 Then Joseph (Yosef) being raised from sleep did as the angel of יהוה had bidden him, and took unto him his wife,
25 And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son; and he called His name YHWH (Yahwah).
Now when YHWH was born in Bethlehem (Beit-Lechem) of Judah (Yehudah) in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem (Yerushalayim),
2 Saying, “Where is he that is born King of the Jews (Yehudim)? For we have seen His star in the east, and are come to worship Him.”
3 When Herod the king had heard these things, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem (Yerushalayim) with him.
4 And when he had gathered all the chief priests (kohanim) and scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where the Messiah (haMashiach) should be born.
5 And they said unto him, “In Bethlehem (Beit-Lechem) of Judah (Yehudah), for thus it is written by the prophet:
6 ‘And you Bethlehem (Beit-Lechem), in the land of Judah (Yehudah), art not the least among the rulers of Judah (Yehudah); for out of you shall come a Ruler, that shall rule My people Yisrael.’” – Mic.5:2
7 Then Herod, when he had privily called the wise men, enquired of them diligently what time the star appeared.
8 And he sent them to Bethlehem (Beit-Lechem), and said, “Go and search diligently for the young Child (haMashiach); and when you have found Him, bring me word again, that I may come and worship Him also.”
9 When they had heard the king, they departed; and, behold, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young Child (haMashiach) was.
10 When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.
11 And when they were come into the house, they saw the young Child (haMashiach) with Mary (Miryam) His mother, and fell down, and worshipped Him; and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto Him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.
12 And being divinely warned in a dream that they should not return to Herod, they departed into their own country another way.
13 And when they were departed, behold, the angel of יהוה appeareth to Joseph (Yosef) in a dream, saying, “Arise, and take the young Child (haMashiach) and His mother, and flee into Egypt (Mitsrayim), and be you there until I bring you word; for Herod will seek the young Child (haMashiach) to destroy Him.”
14 When he arose, he took the young Child (haMashiach) and His mother by night, and departed into Egypt (Mitsrayim);
15 And was there until the death of Herod, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of יהוה by the prophet, saying, “Out of Egypt (Mitsrayim) have I called My son (people).” – Hos.11:1
16 Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem (Beit-Lechem), and in all the coasts thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently enquired of the wise men.
17 Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by A52Jeremiah (Yirmeyahu) the prophet, saying,
18 “In Rama was there a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, and would not be comforted, because they are no more.” – Jer.31:15
19 But when Herod was dead, behold, an angel of יהוה appeareth in a dream to Joseph (Yosef) in Egypt (Mitsrayim),
20 Saying, “Arise, and take the young Child (haMashiach) and His mother, and go into the land of Yisrael, for they are dead who sought the young Child (haMashiach)’s life.”
21 And he arose, and took the young Child (haMashiach) and His mother, and came into the land of Yisrael.
22 But when he heard that Archelaus did reign in Judah (Yehudah) in the room of his father Herod, he was afraid to go thither; notwithstanding, being warned in a dream, he turned aside into the parts of Galilee.
23 And he came and dwelt in a city called Nazareth, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophets, “He shall be called a Nazarene.”
In those days came A67John the Baptist (Yochanan haMatvil), preaching in the wilderness of Judah (Yehudah),
2 And saying, “Repent you, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand!”
3 For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet A51Isaiah (Yeshayahu), saying, B49“The voice of one crying in the wilderness, ‘Prepare you the way of יהוה (YHWH), make His paths straight.’” – Isa.40:3, Mark 1:3, Luke 3:4
4 And the same John (Yochanan) had his raiment of camel’s hair, and a leathern girdle about his loins; and his meat was locusts and wild honey.
5 Then went out to him Jerusalem (Yerushalayim), and all Judah (Yehudah), and all the region round about Jordan (Yarden),
6 And were baptized of him in Jordan (Yarden), confessing their sins.
7 But when he saw many of the B50Pharisees and B51Sadducees come to his B52baptism, he said unto them, “O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?
8 Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance;
9 And think not to say within yourselves, ‘We have Avraham to our father;’ for I say unto you, that B1aGod (Elohim) is able of these stones to raise up children unto Avraham.
10 And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees; therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
11 I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance; but He that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear; He shall baptize you with the Holy Spirit (Ruach haQodesh), and with fire;
12 Whose winnowing fan is in His hand, and He will throughly purge His floor, and gather His wheat into the garner; but He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.
13 Then cometh YHWH from Galilee to Jordan (Yarden) unto John (Yochanan), to be baptized of him.
14 But John (Yochanan) forbad Him, saying, “I have need to be baptized of you, and comest You to me?”
15 And YHWH answering said unto him, “Let it to be so now, for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness.” Then he let Him.
16 And YHWH, when He was baptized, went up straightway out of the water; and, behold, the heavens were opened unto Him, and He saw the Spirit of God (Ruach Elohim) descending like a dove, and lighting upon Him.
17 And behold B53a voice from heaven, saying, “This is My beloved B47Humanity in whom I am well pleased.”
Then was YHWH led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.
2 And when He had fasted forty days and forty nights, He was afterward an hungred.
3 And when the tempter came to Him, he said, “If you be the B47Humanity of El (YHWH), command that these stones be made bread.”
4 But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of יהוה.’ – Deu. 8:3
5 Then the devil taketh Him up into the holy city, and setteth Him on a pinnacle of the temple,
6 And saith unto Him, “If You be the Humanity of El (YHWH), cast Yourself down; for it is written, ‘He shall give His angels charge concerning you; and in their hands they shall bear you up, lest at any time you dash your foot against a stone.’ – Psa. 91:1-2
7 YHWH said unto him, “It is written again, ‘You shalt not tempt יהוה your God (YHWH Eloheikhem).’ – Deu. 6:16
8 Again, the devil taketh Him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth Him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;
9 And saith unto him, “All these things will I give You, if You wilt fall down and worship me.”
10 Then saith YHWH unto him, “Get you away, Satan! For it is written, ‘You shalt worship יהוה your God (YHWH Eloheikha), and Him only shalt you serve.’” – Deu.6:13-14
11 Then the devil leaveth Him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto Him.
12 Now when YHWH had heard that John (Yochanan) was cast into prison, He departed into Galilee;
13 And leaving Nazareth, He came and dwelt in Capernaum, which is upon the sea coast, in the borders of Zabulon and Nephthalim;
14 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah (Yeshayahu) the prophet, saying,
15 “The land of Zabulon (Zevulun), and the land of Nephthalim, by the way of the sea, beyond Jordan (Yarden), Galilee of the nations: – Isa.9:1
16 The people who sat in darkness saw great light; and to them who sat in the region and shadow of death light is sprung up.” – Isa.9:2
17 From that time YHWH began to preach, and to say, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”
18 And YHWH, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Shimon called Peter (Kefa), and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea; for they were fishermen.
19 And He saith unto them, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.”
20 And they straightway left their nets, and followed Him.
21 And going on from thence, He saw other two brethren, Jacob son of Zebedee (Yaaqov Ben-Zavdai), and John (Yochanan) his brother, in a ship with Zebedee (Zavdai) their father, mending their nets; and He called them.
22 And they immediately left the ship and their father, and followed Him.
23 And YHWH went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel (good news) of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people.
24 And his fame went throughout all Syria (Aram); and they brought unto him all sick people that were taken with divers diseases and torments, and those who were possessed with devils, and those who were lunatick, and those that had the palsy; and He healed them.
25 And there followed Him great multitudes of people from Galilee, and from Decapolis, and from Jerusalem (Yerushalayim), and from Judah (Yehudah), and from beyond Jordan (Yarden).
And seeing the multitudes, He went up into a mountain; and when He was set, His disciples came unto Him.
2 And He opened His mouth, and taught them, saying,
3 “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
4 Blessed are they that mourn, for they shall be comforted.
5 Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.
6 Blessed are they who do hunger and thirst after righteousness, for they shall be filled.
7 Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy.
8 Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God (Elohim).
9 Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the children of God (Elohim).
10 Blessed are they who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
11 Blessed are you, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for My sake.
12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so persecuted they the prophets who were before you.
13 You are the salt of the earth, but if the salt has lost its savour, wherewith shall it be salted? It is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.
14 You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.
15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.
17 Think not that I came to destroy the B28dTorah or the Prophets (Nevi’im). I did not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
18 For verily I say unto you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the Torah, till all be fulfilled.
19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven; but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
20 For I say unto you, that except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.
21 You have heard that it was said by them of old time, ‘You shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment;
22 But I say unto you, that whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, ‘B54Rhaka (You empty-headed)’ shall be in danger of the B55council (Sanhedrin); but whosoever shall say, ‘You fool’ shall be in danger of B56hell fire (gehenna).
23 Therefore if you bring your gift to the altar, and there rememberest that your brother hath something against you;
24 Leave there your gift before the altar, and go your way; first be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift.
25 Agree with your adversary quickly, whiles you are in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver you to the judge, and the judge deliver you to the officer, and you be cast into prison.
26 Verily I say unto you, you shalt by no means come out thence, till you have paid the uttermost farthing.
27 You have heard that it was said by them of old time, ‘You shalt not commit adultery.’
28 But I say unto you, that whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.
29 And if your right eye offends you, pluck it out, and cast it from you; for it is profitable for you that one of your members should perish, and not that your whole body should be cast into hell.
30 And if your right hand offends you, cut it off, and cast it from you; for it is profitable for you that one of your members should perish, and not that your whole body should be cast into hell (gehenna).
31 It hath been said, ‘Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement.’
32 But I say unto you, that whosoever shall put away his wife, except for the cause of fornication (sexual immorality), causeth her to commit adultery; and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.
33 Again, you have heard that it hath been said by them of old time, ‘You shalt not swear falsely yourself, but shalt perform unto יהוה your oaths.’ – Lev 19:12, Num.30:2
34 But I say unto you, swear not at all: neither by heaven, for it is God (Elohim)’s throne;
35 Nor by the earth, for it is His footstool; neither by Jerusalem (Yerushalayim); for it is the city of the great King.
36 Neither shalt you swear by your head, because you canst not make one hair white or black.
37 But let your communication be, ‘Yes, yes’; ‘No, no’; for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.
38 You have heard that it hath been said, ‘An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth’;
39 But I say unto you, that you resist not evil; but whosoever shall smite you on your right cheek, turn to him the other also.
40 And if any man will sue you at the law, and take away your coat, let him have your cloke also.
41 And whosoever shall compel you to go a mile, go with him twain.
42 Give to him that asketh you, and from him that would borrow of you turn not you away.
43 You have heard that it hath been said, ‘You shalt love your neighbour, and hate your enemy.’
44 But I say unto you, ‘Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them who despitefully use you, and persecute you;
45 That you may be the children of your Father who is in heaven; for He maketh His sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
46 For if you love them who love you, what reward have you? Do not even the tax collectors do the same?
47 And if you salute your brethren only, what do you more than others? Do not even the tax collectors do so?
48 Be you therefore perfect, even as your Father who is in heaven is perfect.
Take heed that you do not your alms before men, to be seen of them; otherwise you have no reward of your Father who is in heaven.
2 Therefore when you doest your alms, do not sound a trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, they have their reward.
3 But when you doest alms, let not your left hand know what your right hand doeth;
4 That your alms may be in secret; and your Father who seeth in secret Himself shall reward you openly.
5 And when you prayest, you shalt not be as the hypocrites are; for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, they have their reward.
6 But you, when you prayest, enter into your closet, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in secret; and your Father who seeth in secret shall reward you openly.
7 But when you pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do; for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.
8 Be not you therefore like unto them; for your Father knoweth what things you have need of, before you ask Him.
9 After this manner therefore pray you: Our Father who art in heaven, Hallowed be Your name.
10 Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil; for Yours is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. So be it (Amen).
14 For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you;
15 But if you forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
16 Moreover when you fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance; for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you, they have their reward.
17 But you, when you fastest, anoint your head, and wash your face;
18 That you appear not unto men to fast, but unto your Father who is in secret; and your Father, who seeth in secret, shall reward you openly.
19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal;
20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal;
21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
22 The light of the body is the eye. If therefore your eye be clear, your whole body shall be full of light.
23 But if your eye be bad, your whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you be darkness, how great is that darkness!
24 No man can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. You cannot serve God (Elohim) and mammon.
25 Therefore I say unto you, take no thought for your life, what you shall eat, or what you shall drink; nor yet for your body, what you shall put on. Is not the life more than food, and the body than raiment?
26 Behold the fowls of the air; for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are you not much better than they?
27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
28 And why take you thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin;
29 And yet I say unto you, that even Solomon (Shelomoh) in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
30 Wherefore, if God (Elohim) so clothe the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is cast into the oven, shall He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?
31 Therefore take no thought, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ Or, ‘What shall we drink?’ Or, ‘Wherewithal shall we be clothed?’
32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles (Goyim) seek;) for your heavenly Father knoweth that you have need of all these things.
33 But seek you first the kingdom of God (Elohim, יהוה (YHWH)), and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
34 Take therefore no thought for tomorrow, for tomorrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is its own trouble.
Judge not, that you be not judged.
2 For with what judgment you judge, you shall be judged; and with what measure you use, it shall be measured back to you.
3 And why beholdest you the mote that is in your brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in your own eye?
4 Or how wilt you say to your brother, ‘Let me pull out the mote out of your eye;’ and, behold, a beam is in your own eye?
5 You hypocrite! First cast out the beam out of your own eye; and then shalt you see clearly to cast out the mote out of your brother’s eye.
6 Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast you your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.
7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and you shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you;
8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
9 Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone?
10 Or if he asks a fish, will he give him a serpent?
11 If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father who is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?
12 Therefore all things whatsoever you would that men should do to you, do you even so to them; for this is the B28dTorah and the Prophets (Nevi’im).
13 Enter you in at the strait gate; for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be who go in thereat;
14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
15 Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
16 You shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth bad fruit.
18 A good tree cannot bring forth bad fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
20 Wherefore by their fruits you shall know them.
21 Not every one that saith unto Me, ‘Lord (Adonai), Lord (Adonai),’ shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of My Father who is in heaven.
22 Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord (Adonai), Lord (Adonai), have we not prophesied in Your name? And in Your name have cast out devils? And in Your name done many wonderful works?’
23 And then will I profess unto them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you that work iniquity!’
24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of Mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, who built his house upon a rock:
25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not; for it was founded upon a rock.
26 And every one that heareth these sayings of Mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, who built his house upon the sand:
27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell; and great was the fall of it.”
28 And it came to pass, when YHWH had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at His teaching;
29 For He taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.
When He has come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed Him.
2 And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped Him, saying, “Lord (Adonai), if You wilt, You canst make me clean.”
3 And YHWH put forth His hand, and touched him, saying, “I will; be you clean.” And immediately his leprosy was cleansed.
4 And YHWH saith unto him, “See you tell no man; but go your way, shew yourself to the priest (kohen), and offer the gift that Moses (Mosheh) commanded, for a testimony unto them.”
5 And when YHWH has entered into Capernaum, there came unto Him a centurion, beseeching Him,
6 And saying, “Lord (Adonai), my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented.
7 And YHWH saith unto him, “I will come and heal him.”
8 The centurion answered and said, “Lord (Adonai), I am not worthy that You shouldest come under my roof; but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed.
9 For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me; and I say to this man, ‘Go!’ and he goeth; and to another, ‘Come!’ and he cometh; and to my servant, ‘Do this!’ and he doeth it.
10 When YHWH heard it, He marvelled, and said to them that followed, “Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Yisrael.”
11 And I say unto you, that many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Avraham, and Isaac (Yitschaq), and Jacob (Yaaqov), in the kingdom of heaven.
12 But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
13 And YHWH said unto the centurion, “Go your way; and as you have believed, so be it done unto you.” And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour.
14 And when YHWH had come into Peter (Kefa)’s house, He saw his wife’s mother, laid and sick of a fever.
15 And He touched her hand, and the fever left her; and she arose, and ministered unto them.
16 When the even had come, they brought unto Him many that were possessed with devils; and He cast out the spirits with His word, and healed all that were sick;
17 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah (Yeshayahu) the prophet, saying, “He Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.” – Isa.53:4
18 Now when YHWH saw great multitudes about Him, He gave commandment to depart unto the other side.
19 And a certain scribe came, and said unto Him, “Teacher (Rabbi), I will follow You whithersoever You goest.”
20 And YHWH saith unto him, “The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man (haMashiach) hath not where to lay His head.”
21 And another of His disciples said unto Him, “Lord (Adonai), let me first to go and bury my father.”
22 But YHWH said unto him, “Follow Me; and let the dead bury their dead.”
23 And when He has entered into a ship, His disciples followed Him.
24 And, behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea, insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves; but He was asleep.
25 And His disciples came to Him, and awoke Him, saying, “Lord (Adonai), save us; we are perishing!”
26 And He saith unto them, “Why are you fearful, O you of little faith?” Then He arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.
27 But the men marvelled, saying, “What manner of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey Him!”
28 And when He had come to the other side into the country of the Gergesenes, there met Him two possessed with devils, coming out of the tombs, exceeding fierce, so that no man might pass by that way.
29 And, behold, they cried out, saying, “What have we to do with You, YHWH, You B47Humanity of El? Art You come here to torment us before the time?”
30 And there was a good way off from them a herd of many swine feeding.
31 So the devils besought Him, saying, “If You cast us out, let us to go away into the herd of swine.”
32 And He said unto them, “Go!” And when they were come out, they went into the herd of swine; and, behold, the whole herd of swine ran violently down a steep place into the sea, and perished in the waters.
33 And they that kept them fled, and went their ways into the city, and told everything, and what was befallen to the possessed of the devils.
34 And, behold, the whole city came out to meet YHWH; and when they saw Him, they besought Him that He would depart out of their district.
And He entered into a ship, and passed over, and came into His own city.
2 And, behold, they brought to Him a man sick of the palsy, lying on a bed. And YHWH seeing their faith, said unto the sick of the palsy: “Son, be of good cheer; your sins be forgiven you.”
3 And, behold, certain of the scribes said within themselves, “This Man blasphemeth.”
4 And YHWH knowing their thoughts said, “Why think you evil in your hearts?
5 For whether is easier, to say, ‘Your sins be forgiven you;’ or to say, ‘Arise, and walk?’
6 But that you may know that the Son of man (haMashiach) hath power on earth to forgive sins;” (then saith He to the sick of the palsy,) “Arise, take up your bed, and go unto your house.”
7 And he arose, and departed to his house.
8 But when the multitudes saw it, they marvelled, and glorified God (Elohim), who had given such power unto men.
9 And as YHWH passed forth from there, He saw a man, named A68Matthew (Mattityahu), sitting at the receipt of custom; and He saith unto him, “Follow Me!” And he arose, and followed Him.
10 And it came to pass, as YHWH sat at meal in the house, behold, many tax collectors and sinners came and sat down with Him and His disciples.
11 And when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto His disciples, “Why eateth your Teacher (Rabbi) with tax collectors and sinners?
12 But when YHWH heard that, He said unto them, “They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick.
13 But go you and learn what that meaneth: ‘I will have mercy, and not sacrifice;’ for I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.”
14 Then came to Him the disciples of John (Yochanan), saying, “Why do we and the Pharisees fast often, but Your disciples fast not?”
15 And YHWH said unto them, “Can the children of the bridechamber mourn, as long as the bridegroom is with them? But the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken from them, and then shall they fast.
16 No man putteth a piece of new cloth unto an old garment, for that which is put in to fill it up taketh from the garment, and the rent is made worse.
17 Neither do men put new wine into old bottles; else the bottles break, and the wine runneth out, and the bottles perish; but they put new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved.”
18 While He spake these things unto them, behold, there came a certain ruler, and worshipped Him, saying, “My daughter is even now dead; but come and lay Your hand upon her, and she shall live.”
19 And YHWH arose, and followed him, and so did His disciples.
20 And, behold, a woman, who was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind Him, and touched the tassel (tsitsit) of His garment;
21 For she said within herself, “If I may but touch His garment, I shall be whole.”
22 But YHWH turned Him about, and when He saw her, He said, “Daughter, be of good comfort; your faith hath made you whole.” And the woman was made whole from that hour.
23 And when YHWH came into the ruler’s house, and saw the minstrels and the people making a noise,
24 He said unto them, “Give place, for the maid is not dead, but sleepeth.” And they laughed Him to scorn.
25 But when the people were put forth, He went in, and took her by the hand, and the maid arose.
26 And the fame hereof went abroad into all that land.
27 And when YHWH departed thence, two blind men followed Him, crying, and saying, “You son (descendant) of Dawid, have mercy on us.”
28 And when He had come into the house, the blind men came to Him; and YHWH saith unto them, “Believe you that I am able to do this?” They said unto Him, “Yes, Lord (Adonai).”
29 Then touched He their eyes, saying, “According to your faith be it unto you.”
30 And their eyes were opened; and YHWH straitly charged them, saying, “See that no man know it.”
31 But they, when they were departed, spread abroad His fame in all that country.
32 As they went out, behold, they brought to Him a dumb man possessed with a devil.
33 And when the devil was cast out, the dumb spake; and the multitudes marvelled, saying, “It was never so seen in Yisrael.”
34 But the Pharisees said, “He casteth out devils through the prince of the devils.”
35 And YHWH went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel (good news) of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.
36 But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd.
37 Then saith He unto His disciples, “The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few;
38 Pray you therefore Lord (Adon) of the harvest, that He will send forth labourers into His harvest.”
And when He had called unto Him His twelve disciples, He gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.
2 Now the names of the twelve apostles are these: The first, Shimon, who is called Peter (Kefa), and Andrew his brother; James son of Zebedee (Yaaqov Ben-Zavdai), and John (Yochanan) his brother;
3 Philip, and Bartholomew (Bar-Talmai); Thomas, and Matthew (Mattityahu) the tax collector; James the son of Alphaeus (Yaaqov Ben-Chalfai), and Lebbaeus, whose surname was Thaddaeus (Taddai);
4 Shimon the Canaanite (Zealot), and Judah Iscariot (Yehudah Ishqeriot), who betrayed Him.
5 These twelve, YHWH sent forth, and commanded them, saying, “Go not into the way of the Gentiles (Goyim), and into any city of the Samaritans enter you not;
6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Yisrael.
7 And as you go, preach, saying, “The kingdom of heaven is at hand.
8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils; freely you have received, freely give.
9 Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses,
10 Nor scrip for your journey, neither two coats, neither shoes, nor yet staves; for the workman is worthy of his food.
11 And into whatsoever city or town you shall enter, enquire who in it is worthy; and there abide till you go thence.
12 And when you come into a house, greet it.
13 And if the house be worthy, let your peace come upon it; but if it be not worthy, let your peace return to you.
14 And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when you depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet.
15 Verily I say unto you, it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment, than for that city.
16 Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves; be you therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.
17 But beware of men, for they will deliver you up to the councils (Sanhedrins), and they will scourge you in their synagogues;
18 And you shall be brought before governors and kings for My sake, for a testimony against them and the nations.
19 But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what you shall speak, for it shall be given you in that same hour what you shall speak.
20 For it is not you that speak, but the Spirit of your Father who speaketh in you.
21 And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child; and the children shall rise up against their parents, and cause them to be put to death.
22 And you shall be hated of all men for My name’s sake; but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.
23 But when they persecute you in this city, flee you into another; for verily I say unto you, you shall not have gone over the cities of Yisrael, till the Son of man (haMashiach) comes.
24 The disciple (talmid) is not above his teacher (rabbi), nor the servant above his master (adon).
25 It is enough for the disciple (talmid) that he be as his teacher (rabbi), and the servant as his master (adon). If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub (Baal-Zebub), how much more shall they call them of his household?
26 Fear them not therefore, for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hidden, that shall not be known.
27 What I tell you in darkness, that speak you in light; and what you hear in the ear, that preach you upon the housetops.
28 And fear not them who kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul; but rather fear him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell (gehenna).
29 Are not two sparrows sold for a copper coin? And not one of them shall fall on the ground apart from your Father.
30 But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.
31 Fear you not therefore, you are of more value than many sparrows.
32 Whosoever therefore shall confess Me before men, him will I confess also before My Father who is in heaven.
33 But whosoever shall deny Me before men, him will I also deny before My Father who is in heaven.
34 Think not that I have come to send peace on earth; I came not to send peace, but a sword.
35 For I have come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. – Mic.7:6
36 And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.
37 He that loveth father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me; and he that loveth son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me.
38 And he that taketh not his stake, and followeth after Me, is not worthy of Me.
39 He that findeth his life shall lose it; and he that loseth his life for My sake shall find it.
40 He that receiveth you receiveth Me, and he that receiveth Me receiveth Him that sent Me.
41 He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward; and he that receiveth a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward.
42 And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward.”
And it came to pass, when YHWH had made an end of commanding His twelve disciples, He departed from there to teach and to preach in their cities.
2 Now when John (Yochanan) had heard in the prison the works of the Messiah (haMashiach), he sent two of his disciples,
3 And said unto Him, “Art You He that should come, or do we look for another?
4 YHWH answered and said unto them, “Go and shew John (Yochanan) again those things which you do hear and see:
5 The blind receives their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel (good news) preached to them.
6 And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in Me.”
7 And as they departed, YHWH began to say unto the multitudes concerning John (Yochanan): “What went you out into the wilderness to see? A reed shaken with the wind?
8 But what went you out for to see? A man clothed in soft raiment? Behold, they that wear soft clothing are in kings’ houses.
9 But what went you out for to see? A prophet? Yes, I say unto you, and more than a prophet.
10 For this is He, of whom it is written: ‘Behold, I send My messenger before Your face, who shall prepare Your way before You.’ – Mal 3:1
11 Verily I say unto you, among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist (Yochanan haMatvil); notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.
12 And from the days of John the Baptist (Yochanan haMatvil) until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.
13 For all the Prophets (Nevi’im) and the Torah prophesied until John (Yochanan).
14 And if you will receive it, this is A43Elias (Eliyah), who was about to come.
15 He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.
16 But whereunto shall I liken this generation? It is like unto children sitting in the markets, and calling unto their fellows,
17 And saying, ‘We have piped unto you, and you have not danced; we have mourned unto you, and you have not lamented.’
18 For John (Yochanan) came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, ‘He hath a devil.’
19 The Son of man (haMashiach) came eating and drinking, and they say, ‘Behold a man gluttonous, and a winebibber, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!’ But wisdom is justified of her children.”
20 Then began He to upbraid the cities wherein most of His mighty works were done, because they repented not:
21 Woe unto you, Chorazin! Woe unto you, Bethsaida! For if the mighty works, which were done in you, had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes.
22 But I say unto you, it shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the day of judgment, than for you.
23 And you, Capernaum, who exalted yourself unto heaven, shalt be brought down to B32Hades (sheol), for if the mighty works, which have been done in you, had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day. – Isa. 14:13, 15
24 But I say unto you, that it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than for you.”
25 At that time YHWH answered and said, “I thank You, O Father, Lord (Adon) of heaven and earth, because You have hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.
26 Even so, Father; for so it seemed good in Your sight.
27 All things are delivered unto Me of My Father; and no man knoweth the B47Son (Humanity of El), but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, except the B47Son, and he to whomsoever the B47Son wills to reveal Him.
28 Come unto Me, all you that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
29 Take My yoke upon you, and learn of Me; for I am meek and lowly in heart; and you shall find rest unto your souls.
30 For My yoke is easy, and My burden is light.”
At that time YHWH went on the B18Shabbat through the grainfields; and His disciples were hungry, and began to pluck the heads of grain, and to eat.
2 But when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto Him, “Behold, Your disciples do that which is not lawful to do upon the Shabbat.
3 But He said unto them, “Have you not read what Dawid did, when he was hungry, and they that were with him;
4 How he entered into the house of God (Elohim), and did eat the shewbread, which was not lawful for him to eat, neither for them who were with him, but only for the priests (kohanim)?
5 Or have you not read in the Torah, how that on the Shabbat the priests (kohanim) in the temple profane the Shabbat, and are blameless?
6 But I say unto you, that in this place is one greater than the temple.
7 But if you had known what this meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice, you would not have condemned the guiltless.
8 For the Son of man (haMashiach) is Lord of the Sabbath (Adon haShabbat).”
9 And when He had departed from there, He went into their synagogue.
10 And, behold, there was a man who had his hand withered. And they asked Him, saying, “Is it lawful to heal on the Shabbat?” that they might accuse Him.
11 And He said unto them, “What man shall there be among you, that shall have one sheep, and if it falls into a pit on the Shabbat, will he not lay hold on it, and lift it out?
12 How much then is a man better than a sheep? Therefore it is lawful to do good on the Shabbat.”
13 Then saith He to the man, “Stretch forth your hand.” And he stretched it forth; and it was restored whole, like as the other.
14 Then the Pharisees went out, and held a council against Him, how they might destroy Him.
15 But when YHWH knew it, He withdrew Himself from there; and great multitudes followed Him, and He healed them all;
16 And charged them that they should not make Him known;
17 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah (Yeshayahu) the prophet, saying,
18 “Behold My Servant, whom I have chosen; My beloved, in whom My soul is well pleased; I will put My Spirit upon Him, and He shall shew judgment to the nations. – Isa. 42:1
19 He shall not strive, nor cry; neither shall any man hear His voice in the streets. – Isa. 42:2
20 A bruised reed shall He not break, and smoking flax shall He not quench, till He send forth justice unto victory. – Isa 42:3
21 And in His name shall the nations trust.
22 Then was brought unto Him one possessed with a devil, blind, and dumb: and He healed him, insomuch that the blind and dumb both spake and saw.
23 And all the people were amazed, and said, “Is not this the son (descendant) of Dawid?”
24 But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, “This fellow doth not cast out devils, but by Beelzebul (Baal-Zebub) the prince of the devils.
25 And YHWH knew their thoughts, and said unto them, “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand.
26 And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand?
27 And if I by Beelzebul (Baal-Zebub) cast out devils, by whom do your children cast them out? Therefore they shall be your judges.
28 But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God (Ruach Elohim), then the kingdom of God (Elohim, יהוה (YHWH)) has come unto you.
29 Or else how can one enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he first binds the strong man? And then he will spoil his house.
30 He that is not with Me is against Me; and he that gathereth not with Me scattereth abroad.
31 Therefore I say unto you, all manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men; but the blasphemy against the Spirit (Ruach) shall not be forgiven unto men.
32 And whosoever speaketh a word against the son of man, it shall be forgiven him; but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Spirit (Ruach haQodesh), it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come.
33 Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt; for the tree is known by its fruit.
34 O generation of vipers, how can you, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.
35 A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things; and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.
36 But I say unto you, that every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.
37 For by your words you shalt be justified, and by your words you shalt be condemned.”
38 Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered, saying, “Teacher (Rabbi), we wish to see a sign from you.”
39 But He answered and said unto them, “An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Yonah;
40 For as Yonah was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man (haMashiach) be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. – Jon. 1:17
41 The men of Nineveh shall rise in judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it; because they repented at the preaching of Yonah; and, behold, a greater than Yonah is here.
42 The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it; for she came from the uttermost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon (Shelomoh); and, behold, a greater than Solomon (Shelomoh) is here.
43 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none.
44 Then he saith, ‘I will return into my house from where I came out;’ and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished.
45 Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there; and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.
46 While He yet talked to the people, behold, His mother and His brethren stood outside, desiring to speak with Him.
47 Then one said unto Him, “Behold, Your mother and Your brethren stand outside, desiring to speak with You.”
48 But He answered and said unto him that told Him, “Who is My mother? And who are My brethren?”
49 And He stretched forth His hand toward His disciples, and said, “Behold My mother and My brethren!
50 For whosoever shall do the will of My Father who is in heaven, the same is My brother, and sister, and mother.”
The same day went YHWH out of the house, and sat by the sea side.
2 And great multitudes were gathered together unto Him, so that He went into a ship, and sat; and the whole multitude stood on the shore.
3 And He spake many things unto them in parables, saying, “Behold, a sower went forth to sow;
4 And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up:
5 Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth; and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth.
6 And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away.
7 And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and choked them:
8 But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some a hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold.
9 Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.”
10 And the disciples came, and said unto Him, “Why speakest You unto them in parables?”
11 He answered and said unto them, “Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.
12 For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance; but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.
13 Therefore speak I to them in parables; because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.
14 And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah (Yeshayahu), who saith: ‘By hearing you shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing you shall see, and shall not perceive; – Isa. 6:9
15 For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.’ – Isa.6:10
16 But blessed are your eyes, for they see; and your ears, for they hear.
17 For verily I say unto you, that many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which you see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which you hear, and have not heard them.
18 Hear you therefore the parable of the sower.
19 When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he who received seed by the way side.
20 But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it;
21 Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while; for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended.
22 He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful.
23 But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.”
24 Another parable put He forth unto them, saying, “The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man who sowed good seed in his field;
25 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.
26 But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.
27 So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, ‘Sir, didst not you sow good seed in your field? From whence then hath it tares?’
28 He said unto them, ‘An enemy hath done this.’ The servants said unto him, ‘Wilt you then let us go and gather them up?’
29 But he said, ‘No; lest while you gather up the tares, you root up also the wheat with them.
30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, “Gather you together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them; but gather the wheat into my barn.”’”
31 Another parable put He forth unto them, saying, “The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field,
32 Which indeed is the least of all seeds; but when it is grown, it is the greatest among herbs, and becometh a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof.”
33 Another parable spake He unto them; “The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened.”
34 All these things spake YHWH unto the multitude in parables; and without a parable spake He not unto them;
35 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, “I will open My mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world.” – Psa.78:2
36 Then YHWH sent the multitude away, and went into the house; and His disciples came unto Him, saying, “Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field.”
37 He answered and said unto them, “He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man (haMashiach);
38 The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one;
39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.
40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.
41 The Son of man (haMashiach) shall send forth His angels, and they shall gather out of His kingdom all things that offend, and them who do iniquity;
42 And shall cast them into a furnace of fire; there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
43 Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
44 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hidden in a field; which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.
45 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls,
46 Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.
47 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind,
48 Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away.
49 So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and separate the wicked from among the just,
50 And shall cast them into the furnace of fire; there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.”
51 YHWH saith unto them, “Have you understood all these things?” They say unto Him, “Yes, Lord (Adonai).”
52 Then said He unto them, “Therefore every scribe who is instructed unto the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is a householder, who bringeth forth out of his treasure things new and old.”
53 And it came to pass, that when YHWH had finished these parables, He departed from there.
54 And when He had come into His own country, He taught them in their synagogue, insomuch that they were astonished, and said, “Where hath this man this wisdom, and these mighty works?
55 Is not this the carpenter’s son? Is not His mother called Mary (Miryam)? And His brethren, James (Yaaqov), and Joseph (Yosef), and Shimon, and Judah (Yehudah)?
56 And His sisters, are they not all with us? Where then hath this man all these things?”
57 And they were offended in Him. But YHWH said unto them, “A prophet is not without honor, except in his own country, and in his own house.”
58 And He did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief.
At that time Herod the tetrarch heard of the fame of YHWH,
2 And said unto his servants, “This is John the Baptist (Yochanan haMatvil); he is risen from the dead; and therefore mighty works do shew forth themselves in him.”
3 For Herod had laid hold on John (Yochanan), and bound him, and put him in prison for Herodias’ sake, his brother Philip’s wife.
4 For John (Yochanan) said unto him, “It is not lawful for you to have her.”
5 And when he would have put him to death, he feared the multitude, because they counted him as a prophet.
6 But when Herod’s birthday was celebrated, the daughter of Herodias danced before them, and pleased Herod.
7 Whereupon he promised with an oath to give her whatsoever she would ask.
8 And she, being before instructed of her mother, said, “Give me here John the Baptist (Yochanan haMatvil)’s head in a charger.”
9 And the king was sorry; nevertheless for the oath’s sake, and them who sat with him at meat, he commanded it to be given her.
10 And he sent, and beheaded John (Yochanan) in the prison.
11 And his head was brought in a charger, and given to the damsel; and she brought it to her mother.
12 And his disciples came, and took up the body, and buried it, and went and told YHWH.
13 When YHWH heard of it, He departed from there by ship into a desert place apart; and when the people had heard thereof, they followed Him on foot out of the cities.
14 And YHWH went forth, and saw a great multitude, and was moved with compassion toward them, and He healed their sick.
15 And when it was evening, His disciples came to Him, saying, “This is a desert place, and the time is now past; send the multitude away, that they may go into the villages, and buy themselves victuals.”
16 But YHWH said unto them, “They need not depart; give you them to eat.”
17 And they say unto Him, “We have here but five loaves, and two fishes.”
18 He said, “Bring them here to Me.”
19 And He commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass, and took the five loaves, and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, He blessed, and broke, and gave the loaves to His disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.
20 And they did all eat, and were filled; and they took up of the fragments that remained twelve baskets full.
21 And they that had eaten were about five thousand men, besides women and children.
22 And straightway YHWH constrained His disciples to get into a ship, and to go before Him unto the other side, while He sent the multitudes away.
23 And when He had sent the multitudes away, He went up into a mountain apart to pray; and when the evening had come, He was there alone.
24 But the ship was now in the midst of the sea, tossed with waves; for the wind was contrary.
25 And in the fourth watch of the night YHWH went unto them, walking on the sea.
26 And when the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, “It is a spirit (ghost)!” And they cried out for fear.
27 But straightway YHWH spake unto them, saying, “Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid.”
28 And Peter (Kefa) answered Him and said, “Lord (Adonai), if it be You, bid me come unto You on the water.”
29 And He said, “Come!” And when Peter (Kefa) had come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to YHWH.
30 But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, “Lord (Adonai), save me!”
31 And immediately YHWH stretched forth His hand, and caught him, and said unto him, “O you of little faith, wherefore didst you doubt?”
32 And when they had come into the ship, the wind ceased.
33 Then they that were in the ship came and worshipped Him, saying, “Of a truth you are the B47Humanity of El (YHWH).”
34 And when they had gone over, they came into the land of Gennesaret.
35 And when the men of that place had knowledge of him, they sent out into all that country round about, and brought unto him all that were diseased;
36 And besought Him that they might only touch the hem of His garment; and as many as touched were made perfectly whole.
Then came to YHWH scribes and Pharisees, who were of Jerusalem (Yerushalayim), saying,
2 “Why do your disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? For they wash not their hands when they eat bread.
3 But He answered and said unto them, “Why do you also transgress the commandment of God (Elohim) by your tradition?
4 For יהוה your God (Elohim) commanded, saying, ‘Honor your father and mother; and, ‘He that curseth father or mother, let him die the death.’ – Deut. 5:16, Exo. 21:17
5 But you say, ‘Whosoever shall say to his father or his mother, “It is a gift (given to the temple of God), whatsoever you mightest be profited by me;”
6 And he shall be free from honoring his father or his mother;’ Thus have you made the commandment of God (Elohim) of none effect by your tradition.
7 You hypocrites, well did Isaiah (Yeshayahu) prophesy of you, saying,
8 ‘This people draweth near unto Me with their mouth, and honoureth Me with their lips; but their heart is far from Me. – Isa. 29:3
9 But in vain they do worship Me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’” – Isa. 29:3
10 And He called the multitude, and said unto them, “Hear, and understand:
11 Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.”
12 Then came His disciples, and said unto Him, “Knowest You that the Pharisees were offended, after they heard this saying?”
13 But He answered and said, “Every plant, which My heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up.
14 Let them alone; they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.”
15 Then answered Peter (Kefa) and said unto Him, “Declare unto us this parable.”
16 And YHWH said, “Are you also yet without understanding?
17 Do not you yet understand, that whatsoever entereth in at the mouth goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the draught?
18 But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man.
19 For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies.
20 These are the things which defile a man; but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man.”
21 Then YHWH went from there, and departed into the coasts of Tyre and Sidon.
22 And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried unto Him, saying, “Have mercy on me, O Lord (Adonai), You son (descendant) of Dawid; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil.
23 But He answered her not a word. And His disciples came and besought Him, saying, “Send her away; for she crieth after us.”
24 But he answered and said, “I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Yisrael.”
25 Then came she and worshipped him, saying, “Lord (Adonai), help me!”
26 But He answered and said, “It is not right to take the children’s bread, and to cast it to dogs.”
27 And she said, “Yes, Lord (Adonai); yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters’ table.”
28 Then YHWH answered and said unto her, “O woman, great is your faith; be it unto you even as you wilt.” And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.
29 And YHWH departed from there, and came near unto the sea of Galilee; and went up into a mountain, and sat down there.
30 And great multitudes came unto Him, having with them those that were lame, blind, dumb, maimed, and many others, and cast them down at YHWH’s feet; and He healed them.
31 Insomuch that the multitude wondered, when they saw the dumb to speak, the maimed to be whole, the lame to walk, and the blind to see; and they glorified the God (Elohim) of Yisrael.
32 Then YHWH called His disciples unto Him, and said, “I have compassion on the multitude, because they continue with Me now three days, and have nothing to eat; and I will not send them away fasting, lest they faint on the way.”
33 And His disciples say unto Him, “Where should we have so much bread in the wilderness, as to fill so great a multitude?”
34 And YHWH saith unto them, “How many loaves have you?” And they said, “Seven, and a few little fishes.”
35 And He commanded the multitude to sit down on the ground.
36 And He took the seven loaves and the fishes, and gave thanks, and broke them, and gave to His disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.
37 And they did all eat, and were filled; and they took up of the broken pieces that was left seven baskets full.
38 And they that did eat were four thousand men, besides women and children.
39 And He sent away the multitude, and took ship, and came into the coasts of Magdala.
The Pharisees also with the Sadducees came, and testing Him, asked that He would shew them a sign from heaven.
2 He answered and said unto them, “When it is evening, you say, ‘It will be fair weather; for the sky is red.’
3 And in the morning, ‘It will be foul weather today, for the sky is red and lowring.’ O you hypocrites, you can discern the face of the sky; but can you not discern the signs of the times?
4 A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Yonah.” And He left them, and departed.
5 And when His disciples had come to the other side, they had forgotten to take bread.
6 Then YHWH said unto them, “Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.”
7 And they reasoned among themselves, saying, “It is because we have taken no bread.”
8 Which when YHWH perceived, He said unto them, “O you of little faith, why reason you among yourselves, because you have brought no bread?
9 Do you not yet understand, neither remember the five loaves of the five thousand, and how many baskets you took up?
10 Neither the seven loaves of the four thousand, and how many baskets you took up?
11 How is it that you do not understand that I spake it not to you concerning bread, that you should beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees?”
12 Then understood they how that He bade them not beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.
13 When YHWH came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, saying, “Whom do men say that I the Son of man (haMashiach), am?”
14 And they said, “Some say that You are John the Baptist (Yochanan haMatvil); some, Elijah (Eliyahu); and others, Jeremiah (Yirmeyahu), or one of the prophets.
15 He saith unto them, “But whom say you that I am?”
16 And Shimon Peter (Kefa) answered and said, “You are the Messiah (haMashiach), the B47Humanity of the B2living God (Elohim chayim)
17 And YHWH answered and said unto him, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah (Shimon Bar-Yonah); for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto you, but My Father who is in heaven.
18 And I say also unto you, that you are Peter (Kefa), and upon this rock I will build My B61assembly; and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.
19 And I will give unto you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatsoever you shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatsoever you shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”
20 Then charged He His disciples that they should tell no man that He is the Messiah (haMashiach).
21 From that time forth began YHWH to shew unto His disciples, how that He must go unto Jerusalem (Yerushalayim), and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests (kohanim) and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day.
22 Then Peter (Kefa) took Him, and began to rebuke Him, saying, “Be it far from You, Lord (Adonai); this shall not be unto You!”
23 But He turned, and said unto Peter (Kefa), “Get you behind Me, Satan!
you are an offence unto Me; for you savourest not the things that be of God (Elohim), but those that be of men.”
24 Then said YHWH unto His disciples, “If any man will come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his stake, and follow Me.
25 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; and whosoever will lose his life for My sake shall find it.
26 For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
27 For the Son of man (haMashiach) shall come in the glory of His Father with His angels; and then He shall reward every man according to his works.
28 Verily I say unto you, ‘There be some standing here, who shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man (haMashiach) coming in His kingdom.”
And after six days YHWH taketh Peter (Kefa), James (Yaaqov), and John (Yochanan) his brother, and bringeth them up into a high mountain apart,
2 And was transfigured before them; and His face did shine as the sun, and His raiment was white as the light.
3 And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses (Mosheh) and Elijah (Eliyahu) talking with Him.
4 Then answered Peter (Kefa), and said unto YHWH, “Lord (Adonai), it is good for us to be here; if You wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for You, and one for Moses (Mosheh), and one for Elijah (Eliyahu).”
5 While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them; and behold a voice out of the cloud, who said, “This is My beloved B47Humanity, in whom I am well pleased; hear you Him!”
6 And when the disciples heard it, they fell on their face, and were sore afraid.
7 And YHWH came and touched them, and said, “Arise, and be not afraid.”
8 And when they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no man, except YHWH only.
9 And as they came down from the mountain, YHWH charged them, saying, “Tell the vision to no man, until the Son of man (haMashiach) be risen again from the dead.
10 And His disciples asked Him, saying, “Why then say the scribes that Elijah (Eliyahu) must first come?”
11 And YHWH answered and said unto them, “Elijah (Eliyahu) truly shall first come, and restore all things.
12 But I say unto you, that Elijah (Eliyahu) has come already, and they knew him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they wished. Likewise shall also the Son of man (haMashiach) suffer of them.”
13 Then the disciples understood that He spake unto them of John the Baptist (Yochanan haMatvil).
14 And when they had come to the multitude, there came to Him a certain man, kneeling down to Him, and saying,
15 “Lord (Adonai), have mercy on my son; for he is lunatick, and sore vexed; for ofttimes he falleth into the fire, and often into the water.
16 And I brought him to your disciples, and they could not cure him.”
17 Then YHWH answered and said, “O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I bear with you? Bring him here to Me.”
18 And YHWH rebuked the devil; and he departed out of him; and the child was cured from that very hour.
19 Then came the disciples to YHWH privately, and said, “Why could not we cast him out?”
20 And YHWH said unto them, “Because of your unbelief; for verily I say unto you, if you have faith as a grain of mustard seed, you shall say unto this mountain, ‘Remove hence to yonder place;’ and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
21 Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.”
22 And while they abode in Galilee, YHWH said unto them, “The Son of man (haMashiach) shall be betrayed into the hands of men;
23 And they shall kill Him, and the third day He shall be raised again.” And they were exceeding sorry.
24 And when they had come to Capernaum, they that received tribute money (temple tax) came to Peter (Kefa), and said, “Doth not your Teacher (Rabbi) pay tribute (temple tax)?”
25 He saith, “Yes.” And when he had come into the house, YHWH prevented him, saying, “What thinkest you, Shimon? Of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute (temple tax)? Of their own children, or of strangers?”
26 Peter (Kefa) saith unto Him, “Of strangers.” YHWH saith unto him, “Then are the children free.
27 However, lest we should offend them, go you to the sea, and cast a hook, and take up the fish that first cometh up; and when you have opened his mouth, you shalt find a piece of money; that take, and give unto them for Me and you.”
At the same time came the disciples unto YHWH, saying, “Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?”
2 And YHWH called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them,
3 And said, “Verily I say unto you, except you be converted, and become as little children, you shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
5 And whoso shall receive one such little child in My name receiveth Me.
6 But whoso shall offend one of these little ones who believe in Me, it was better for him that a millstone was hanged about his neck, and that he be drowned in the depth of the sea.
7 Woe unto the world because of offences! For it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!
8 Therefore if your hand or your foot offend you, cut them off, and cast them from you; it is better for you to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire.
9 And if your eye offends you, pluck it out, and cast it from you: it is better for you to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire (gehenna).
10 Take heed that you despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, that in heaven their angels do always behold the face of My Father who is in heaven.
11 For the Son of man (haMashiach) is come to save that which was lost.
12 How think you? If a man has a hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leaves the ninety and nine, and goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which is gone astray?
13 And if so be that he finds it, verily I say unto you, he rejoiceth more of that sheep, than of the ninety and nine which went not astray.
14 Even so it is not the will of your Father who is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish.
15 Moreover if your brother shall trespass against you, go and tell him his fault between you and him alone; if he shall hear you, you have gained your brother.
16 But if he will not hear you, then take with you one or two more, that ‘in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.’
17 And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the assembly; but if he neglects to hear the assembly, let him be unto you like a heathen man and a tax collector.
18 Verily I say unto you, whatsoever you shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatsoever you shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
19 Again I say unto you, that if two of you shall agree on earth as touching anything that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of My Father who is in heaven.
20 For where two or three are gathered together in My name, there am I in the midst of them.”
21 Then came Peter (Kefa) to him, and said, “Lord (Adonai), how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Till seven times?”
22 YHWH saith unto him, “I say not unto you, until seven times; but until seventy times seven.
23 Therefore is the kingdom of heaven likened unto a certain king, who would take account of his servants.
24 And when he had begun to reckon, one was brought unto him, who owed him ten thousand talents.
25 But forasmuch as he had not to pay, his master commanded him to be sold, and his wife, and children, and all that he had, and payment to be made.
26 The servant therefore fell down, and worshipped him, saying, ‘Master, have patience with me, and I will pay you all.’
27 Then the master of that servant was moved with compassion, and loosed him, and forgave him the debt.
28 But the same servant went out, and found one of his fellowservants, who owed him a hundred pence; and he laid hands on him, and took him by the throat, saying, ‘Pay me that you owest.’
29 And his fellowservant fell down at his feet, and besought him, saying, ‘Have patience with me, and I will pay you all.’
30 And he would not, but went and cast him into prison, till he should pay the debt.
31 So when his fellowservants saw what was done, they were very sorry, and came and told unto their master all that was done.
32 Then his master after that he had called him, said unto him, ‘O you wicked servant, I forgave you all that debt, because you begged me.
33 Shouldest not you also have had compassion on your fellowservant, even as I had pity on you?’
34 And his master was wroth, and delivered him to the tormentors, till he should pay all that was due unto him.
35 So likewise shall My heavenly Father do also unto you, if you from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses.”
And it came to pass, that when YHWH had finished these sayings, He departed from Galilee, and came into the coasts of Judah (Yehudah) beyond Jordan (Yarden);
2 And great multitudes followed Him; and He healed them there.
3 The Pharisees also came unto Him, testing him, and saying unto Him, “Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every cause?”
4 And He answered and said unto them, “Have you not read, that He who made them at the beginning made them male and female, – Gen. 1:27, 5:2
5 And said, ‘For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife; and they twain shall be one flesh? – Gen. 2:24
6 Therefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore Elohim hath joined together, let not man separate.”
7 They say unto Him, “Why did Moses (Mosheh) then command to give a writing of divorcement, and to put her away?” – Deut. 24:1, 24:3
8 He saith unto them, “Moses (Mosheh), because of the hardness of your hearts let you to put away your wives, but from the beginning it was not so.
9 And I say unto you, ‘Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication (sexual immorality) and shall marry another, committeth adultery; and whoso marrieth her who is put away doth commit adultery!”
10 His disciples say unto Him, “If the case of the man be so with his wife, it is not good to marry.”
11 But He said unto them, “Not everyone receives this saying, except they to whom it has been given;
12 For there are some eunuchs, who were so born from their mother’s womb; and there are some eunuchs, who were made eunuchs of men; and there were eunuchs, who have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven’s sake. He that is able to receive it, let him receive it.”
13 Then were there brought unto Him little children, that He should put his hands on them, and pray; and the disciples rebuked them.
14 But YHWH said, “Let little children, and forbid them not to come unto Me; for of such is the kingdom of heaven.”
15 And He laid his hands on them, and departed from there.
16 And, behold, one came and said unto Him, “Good Teacher (Rabbi), what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?”
17 And He said unto him, “Why callest you Me good? There is none good but One, that is, God (Elohim); but if you wish to enter into life, keep the commandments.”
18 He saith unto Him, “Which?” YHWH said, “‘You shalt do no murder,’ ‘You shalt not commit adultery,’ ‘You shalt not steal,’ ‘You shalt not bear false witness,’
19 ‘Honour your father and your mother;’ and, ‘You shalt love your neighbour as yourself.’”
20 The young man saith unto Him, “All these things have I kept from my youth up; what lack I yet?”
21 YHWH said unto him, “If you wilt be perfect, go and sell that you have, and give to the poor, and you shalt have treasure in heaven; and come and follow Me.”
22 But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful; for he had great possessions.
23 Then said YHWH unto His disciples, “Verily I say unto you, that a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven.
24 And again I say unto you, “It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God (Elohim, יהוה (YHWH)).”
25 When His disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, “Who then can be saved?”
26 But YHWH beheld them, and said unto them, “With men this is impossible; but with God (Elohim) all things are possible.”
27 Then answered Peter (Kefa) and said unto Him, “Behold, we have forsaken all, and followed you; what shall we have therefore?”
28 And YHWH said unto them, “Verily I say unto you, that you who have followed Me, in the regeneration when the Son of man (haMashiach) shall sit in the throne of His glory, you also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Yisrael.”
29 And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for My name’s sake, shall receive a hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.
30 But many that are first shall be last; and the last shall be first.
For the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is a householder, who went out early in the morning to hire labourers into his vineyard.
2 And when he had agreed with the labourers for a penny a day, he sent them into his vineyard.
3 And he went out about the third hour, and saw others standing idle in the marketplace,
4 And said unto them: “Go you also into the vineyard, and whatsoever is right I will give you.” And they went their way.
5 Again he went out about the sixth and ninth hour, and did likewise.
6 And about the eleventh hour he went out, and found others standing idle, and saith unto them, “Why stand you here all the day idle?”
7 They say unto him, “Because no man hath hired us.” He saith unto them, “Go you also into the vineyard; and whatsoever is right, that shall you receive.”
8 So when even was come, the lord (owner) of the vineyard saith unto his steward, “Call the labourers, and give them their hire, beginning from the last unto the first.”
9 And when they came that were hired about the eleventh hour, they received every man a penny.
10 But when the first came, they supposed that they should have received more; and they likewise received every man a penny.
11 And when they had received it, they murmured against the goodman of the house,
12 Saying, “These last have wrought but one hour, and you have made them equal unto us, who have borne the burden and heat of the day.”
13 But he answered one of them, and said, “Friend, I do you no wrong; didst not you agree with me for a penny?”
14 Take that your is, and go your way; I will give unto this last, even as unto you.
15 Is it not lawful for me to do what I will with mine own? Is your eye evil, because I am good?”
16 So the last shall be first, and the first last; for many be called, but few chosen.
17 And YHWH going up to Jerusalem (Yerushalayim) took the twelve disciples apart in the way, and said unto them,
18 “Behold, we go up to Jerusalem (Yerushalayim); and the Son of man (haMashiach) shall be betrayed unto the chief priests (kohanim) and unto the scribes, and they shall condemn Him to death,
19 And shall deliver Him to the Gentiles (Goyim) to mock, and to scourge, and to crucify Him; and the third day He shall rise again.”
20 Then came to Him the mother of Zebedee (Zavdai)’s children with her sons, worshipping Him, and requesting a certain thing of Him.
21 And He said unto her, “What wilt you?” She saith unto Him, “Grant that these my two sons may sit, the one on your right hand, and the other on the left, in Your kingdom.”
22 But YHWH answered and said, “You know not what you ask. Are you able to drink of the cup that I shall drink of, and to be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with?” They say unto Him, “We are able.”
23 And He saith unto them, “You shall drink indeed of My cup, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with; but to sit on My right hand, and on My left, is not Mine to give, but it shall be given to them for whom it is prepared of My Father.”
24 And when the ten heard it, they were moved with indignation against the two brethren.
25 But YHWH called them unto Him, and said, “You know that the rulers of the Gentiles (Goyim) exercise dominion over them, and they that are great exercise authority upon them.
26 But it shall not be so among you, but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your servant;
27 And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your slave;
28 Even as the Son of man (haMashiach) came not to be served unto, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.”
29 And as they departed from Yericho, a great multitude followed Him.
30 And, behold, two blind men sitting by the way side, when they heard that YHWH passed by, cried out, saying, “Have mercy on us, O Lord (Adonai), You son (descendant) of Dawid.”
31 And the multitude rebuked them, because they should hold their peace, but they cried the more, saying, “Have mercy on us, O Lord (Adonai), You son (descendant) of Dawid!”
32 And YHWH stood still, and called them, and said, “What will you that I shall do unto you?”
33 They say unto Him, “Lord (Adonai), that our eyes may be opened.”
34 So YHWH had compassion on them, and touched their eyes; and immediately their eyes received sight, and they followed Him.
And when they drew near unto Jerusalem (Yerushalayim), and had come to Bethphage, unto the Mount of Olives, then sent YHWH two disciples,
2 Saying unto them, “Go into the village opposite you, and straightway you shall find an ass tied, and a colt with her; loose them, and bring them unto Me.
3 And if any man says anything unto you, you shall say, the Lord (Adonai) hath need of them; and straightway he will send them.”
4 All this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet A65Zechariah (Zekharyah), saying:
5 “Tell you the daughter of Zion (Tsiyon), ‘Behold, your King cometh unto you, meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt the foal of an ass.’” – Zec. 9:9
6 And the disciples went, and did as YHWH commanded them,
7 And brought the ass, and the colt, and put on them their clothes, and they set him thereon.
8 And a very great multitude spread their garments on the road; others cut down branches from the trees, and strawed them in the way.
9 And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, “B57Hosanna to the son (descendant) of Dawid: ‘Blessed is He that cometh in the name of יהוה (YHWH)!’ Hosanna in the highest.” – Psa. 118:25, 26
10 And when He had come into Jerusalem (Yerushalayim), all the city was moved, saying, “Who is this?”
11 And the multitude said, “This is YHWH the prophet of Nazareth of Galilee.
12 And YHWH went into the temple of God (Elohim), and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves,
13 And said unto them, “It is written, ‘My house shall be called the house of prayer;’ but you have made it ‘a den of thieves.’” – Isa. 56:7, Jer. 7:11
14 And the blind and the lame came to Him in the temple; and He healed them.
15 And when the chief priests (kohanim) and scribes saw the wonderful things that He did, and the children crying in the temple, and saying, “Hosanna to the son (descendant) of Dawid!” they were sore displeased,
16 And said unto Him, “Hearest You what these say?” And YHWH saith unto them, “Yes. Have you never read, ‘Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings You have perfected praise’?” – Psa. 8:2
17 And He left them, and went out of the city into Bethany; and He lodged there.
18 Now in the morning as He returned into the city, He hungered.
19 And when He saw a fig tree in the way, He came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, “Let no fruit grow on you henceforward forever.” And presently the fig tree withered away.
20 And when the disciples saw it, they marvelled, saying, “How soon is the fig tree withered away!”
21 YHWH answered and said unto them, “Verily I say unto you, if you have faith, and doubt not, you shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if you shall say unto this mountain, ‘Be you removed, and be you cast into the sea;’ it shall be done.
22 And all things, whatsoever you shall ask in prayer, believing, you shall receive.”
23 And when He had come into the temple, the chief priests (kohanim) and the elders of the people came unto Him as He was teaching, and said, “By what authority doest You these things? And who gave You this authority?”
24 And YHWH answered and said unto them, “I also will ask you one thing, which if you tell Me, I in like wise will tell you by what authority I do these things.
25 The baptism of John (Yochanan), where was it? From heaven, or of men?” And they reasoned with themselves, saying, “If we shall say, ‘From heaven;’ He will say unto us, ‘Why did you not then believe Him?’
26 But if we shall say, ‘Of men;’ we fear the people; for all hold John (Yochanan) as a prophet.
27 And they answered YHWH, and said, “We cannot tell.” And He said unto them, “Neither tell I you by what authority I do these things.
28 But what think you? A certain man had two sons; and he came to the first, and said, ‘Son, go work today in my vineyard.’
29 He answered and said, ‘I will not;’ but afterward he repented, and went.
30 And he came to the second, and said likewise. And he answered and said, ‘I go, sir;’ and went not.
31 Whether of them twain did the will of his father?” They say unto him, “The first.” YHWH saith unto them, “Verily I say unto you, that the tax collectors and the harlots go into the kingdom of God (Elohim, יהוה (YHWH)) before you;
32 For John (Yochanan) came unto you in the way of righteousness, and you believed him not, but the tax collectors and the harlots believed him; and you, when you had seen it, repented not afterward, that you might believe him.
33 Hear another parable: There was a certain householder, who planted a vineyard, and hedged it round about, and digged a winepress in it, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into a far country.
34 And when the time of the fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the husbandmen, that they might receive the fruits of it.
35 And the husbandmen took his servants, and beat one, and killed another, and stoned another.
36 Again, he sent other servants more than the first; and they did unto them likewise.
37 But last of all he sent unto them his son, saying, ‘They will reverence my son.’
38 But when the husbandmen saw the son, they said among themselves, ‘This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and let us seize on his inheritance.’
39 And they caught him, and cast him out of the vineyard, and slew him.
40 When the owner therefore of the vineyard cometh, what will he do unto those husbandmen?”
41 They say unto Him, “He will miserably destroy those wicked men, and will let out his vineyard unto other husbandmen, who shall render him the fruits in their seasons.”
42 YHWH saith unto them, “Did you never read in the scriptures, ‘The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner’; this is יהוה’s doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes? – Psa.118:22
43 Therefore say I unto you, ‘The kingdom of God (Elohim, יהוה (YHWH)) shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.
44 And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken; but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.’”
45 And when the chief priests (kohanim) and Pharisees had heard His parables, they perceived that He spake of them.
46 But when they sought to lay hands on Him, they feared the multitude, because they took Him for a prophet.
And YHWH answered and spake unto them again by parables, and said,
2 “The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, who made a marriage for his son,
3 And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding; and they would not come.
4 Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, ‘Tell them who are bidden, “Behold, I have prepared my dinner; my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready. Come unto the marriage.”’
5 But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to his farm, another to his merchandise;
6 And the remnant took his servants, and entreated them spitefully, and slew them.
7 But when the king heard thereof, he was wroth; and he sent forth his armies, and destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city.
8 Then saith he to his servants, ‘The wedding is ready, but they who were bidden were not worthy.
9 Go you therefore into the highways, and as many as you shall find, bid to the marriage.’
10 So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good; and the wedding was furnished with guests.
11 And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man who had not on a wedding garment.
12 And he saith unto him, ‘Friend, how camest you in here not having a wedding garment?’ And he was speechless.
13 Then said the king to the servants, ‘Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’
14 For many are called, but few are chosen.”
15 Then went the Pharisees, and took counsel how they might entangle Him in His talk.
16 And they sent out unto Him their disciples with the Herodians, saying, “Teacher (Rabbi), we know that You are true, and teachest the way of God (Elohim) in truth, neither carest You for any man; for You regardest not the person of men.
17 Tell us therefore, what thinkest You? Is it lawful to give tribute (poll-tax) unto Caesar (Roman Emperor), or not?”
18 But YHWH perceived their wickedness, and said, “Why test you Me, you hypocrites?
19 Shew Me the tribute (poll tax) money.” And they brought unto Him a penny.
20 And He saith unto them, “Whose is this image and superscription?”
21 They say unto Him, Caesar’s. Then saith He unto them, “Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s; and unto God (Elohim) the things that are God (Elohim)’s.”
22 When they had heard these words, they marvelled, and left Him, and went their way.
23 The same day came to Him the Sadducees, who say that there is no resurrection, and asked Him,
24 Saying, “Teacher (Rabbi), Mosheh said, ‘If a man dies, having no children, his brother shall marry his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother.’
25 Now there were with us seven brethren: and the first, when he had married a wife, deceased, and, having no issue, left his wife unto his brother;
26 Likewise the second also, and the third, unto the seventh.
27 And last of all the woman died also.
28 Therefore in the resurrection, whose wife shall she be of the seven? For they all had her.”
29 YHWH answered and said unto them, “You do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God (Elohim).
30 For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God (Elohim) in heaven.
31 But as touching the resurrection of the dead, have you not read that which was spoken unto you by יהוה, saying,
32 “I am the God (Elohim) of Avraham, and the God (Elohim) of Isaac (Yitschaq), and the God (Elohim) of Jacob (Yaaqov)”? יהוה (YHWH) is not the God (Elohim) of the dead, but of the living.” – Exo. 3:6
33 And when the multitude heard this, they were astonished at His doctrine.
34 But when the Pharisees had heard that He had put the Sadducees to silence, they were gathered together.
35 Then one of them, who was a lawyer, asked Him a question, testing Him, and saying,
36 “Teacher (Rabbi), which is the great commandment in the Torah?”
37 YHWH said unto him, “You shalt love יהוה your God (Elohim) with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. – Deu. 6:5
38 This is the first and great commandment.
39 And the second is like unto it, ‘You shalt love your neighbour as yourself.’ – Lev. 19:18
40 On these two commandments hang all the Torah and the Prophets (Nevi’im).”
41 While the Pharisees were gathered together, YHWH asked them,
42 Saying, “What think you of the Messiah (haMashiach)? Whose son is He?” They say unto Him, “The son of Dawid.”
43 He saith unto them, “How then doth Dawid in spirit call Him my Lord (Adoni), saying,
44 ‘יהוה said unto my Lord (Adoni), “Sit You on My right hand, till I make Your enemies Your footstool”? – Psa. 110:1
45 If Dawid then call Him (haMashiach) Lord (Adon), how is He his son?”
46 And no man was able to answer Him a word, neither durst any man from that day forth ask Him any more questions.
Then spake YHWH to the multitude, and to His disciples,
2 Saying, “The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses (Mosheh)’s seat.
3 All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not you after their works, for they say, and do not.
4 For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men’s shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers.
5 But all their works they do for to be seen of men; they make broad their phylacteries (tefillin), and enlarge the borders of their tassels (tzitziyot),
6 And love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues,
7 And greetings in the markets, and to be called of men, ‘Rabbi, Rabbi’.
8 But be not you called Teacher (Rabbi); for One is your Teacher (Rabbi), the Messiah (haMashiach); and all you are brethren.
9 And call no man your father upon the earth; for One is your Father, who is in heaven.
10 Neither be you called masters; for One is your Master, the Messiah (haMashiach).
11 But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant.
12 And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.
13 But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you shut up the kingdom of heaven against men; for you neither go in yourselves, neither allow you them that are entering to go in.
14 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you devour widows’ houses, and for a pretence make long prayer; therefore you shall receive greater damnation.
15 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you compass sea and land to win one proselyte (convert), and when he is won, you make him twofold more the child of hell (gehenna) than yourselves.
16 Woe unto you, you blind guides, who say, ‘Whosoever shall swear by the temple, it is nothing; but whosoever shall swear by the gold of the temple, he is a debtor!’
17 You fools and blind! For whether is greater, the gold, or the temple that sanctifieth the gold?
18 And, ‘Whosoever shall swear by the altar, it is nothing; but whosoever sweareth by the gift that is upon it, he is guilty.’
19 You fools and blind! For whether is greater, the gift, or the altar that sanctifieth the gift?
20 Whoso therefore shall swear by the altar, sweareth by it, and by all things thereon.
21 And whoso shall swear by the temple, sweareth by it, and by Him that dwelleth therein.
22 And he that shall swear by heaven, sweareth by the throne of God (Elohim), and by Him that sitteth thereon.
23 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the Torah: judgment, mercy, and faith; these ought you to have done, and not to leave the other undone.
24 You blind guides, who strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel.
25 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess.
26 You blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also.
27 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men’s bones, and of all uncleanness.
28 Even so you also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within you are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.
29 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Because you build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous,
30 And say, ‘If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets.’
31 Therefore you be witnesses unto yourselves, that you are the children of them who killed the prophets.
32 Fill you up then the measure of your fathers.
33 You serpents, you generation of vipers, how can you escape the damnation of hell (gehenna)?
34 Therefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes; and some of them you shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall you scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city,
35 That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel (Hevel) unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias (Zekharyah ben-Berekhyah), whom you slew between the temple and the altar.
36 Verily I say unto you, all these things shall come upon this generation.
37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem (Yerushalayim), you that killest the prophets, and stonest them who are sent unto you, how often would I have gathered your children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and you would not!
38 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate. – Jer. 22:5
39 For I say unto you, ‘You shall not see Me henceforth, till you shall say, ‘Blessed is He that cometh in the name of יהוה (YHWH)!’” – Psa. 118:26
And YHWH went out, and departed from the temple; and His disciples came to Him for to show Him the buildings of the temple.
2 And YHWH said unto them, “See you not all these things? Verily I say unto you, there shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.”
3 And as He sat upon the Mount of Olives, the disciples came unto Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when shall these things be? And what shall be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the world?”
4 And YHWH answered and said unto them, “Take heed that no man deceives you.
5 For many shall come in My name (reputation and power), saying, ‘I am the anointed one (hamashiach)’; and shall deceive many.
6 And you shall hear of wars and rumours of wars. See that you be not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.
9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you; and you shall be hated of all nations for My name’s sake.
10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.
11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
14 And this gospel (good news) of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
15 When you therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place. (whoso readeth, let him understand), – Dan .9:27, 11:31, 12:11
16 Then let them who are in Judah (Yehudah) flee into the mountains;
17 Let him who is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house;
18 Neither let him who is in the field return back to take his clothes.
19 And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!
20 But pray you that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the Shabbat;
21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.
23 Then if any man shall say unto you, ‘Behold, here is the Messiah (haMashiach) or there;’ believe it not.
24 For there shall arise false Messiahs (Mashiachi), and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it was possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
25 Behold, I have told you before.
26 Therefore if they shall say unto you, ‘Behold, He is in the desert;’ go not forth; ‘Behold, He is in the secret chambers;’ believe it not.
27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man (haMashiach) be.
28 For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.
29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken; – Isa. 13:10; Eze. 32:7; Joel 2:10, 2:31; Eze. 3:15; Hag.2:6, 21
30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man (haMashiach) in heaven; and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man (haMashiach) coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. – Dan.7:13
31 And He shall send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree: When its branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, you know that summer is near.
33 So likewise you, when you shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.
34 Verily I say unto you, this generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.
35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but My words shall not pass away. – Mark 13:31, Luke 21:33
36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, nor the angels of heaven, but My Father only.
37 But as the days of Noe (Noach) were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man (haMashiach) be.
38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe (Noach) entered into the ark,
39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man (haMashiach) be.
40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
42 Watch therefore, for you know not what hour your Lord (Adonai) doth come.
43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.
44 Therefore be you also ready, for in such an hour as you think not the Son of man (haMashiach) cometh.
45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his master hath made ruler over his household, to give them food in due season?
46 Blessed is that servant, whom his master, when he cometh shall find so doing.
47 Verily I say unto you, that he shall make him ruler over all his goods.
48 But if that evil servant shall say in his heart, ‘My master delayeth his coming;’
49 And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;
50 The master of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,
51 And shall cut him in two, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, who took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.
2 And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.
3 They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them;
4 But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.
5 While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.
6 And at midnight there was a cry made: ‘Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go you out to meet him!’
7 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.
8 And the foolish said unto the wise, ‘Give us of your oil; for our lamps have gone out.’
9 But the wise answered, saying, ‘Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you; but go you rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.’
10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage; and the door was shut.
11 Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, ‘Our Master, master, open to us.’
12 But he answered and said, ‘Verily I say unto you, I know you not.’
13 Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man (haMashiach) cometh.
14 For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods.
15 And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey.
16 Then he that had received the five talents went and traded with the same, and made them other five talents.
17 And likewise he that had received two, he also gained other two.
18 But he that had received one went and digged in the earth, and hid his master’s money.
19 After a long time the master of those servants cometh, and reckoneth with them.
20 And so he that had received five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, ‘Master, you deliveredst unto me five talents; behold, I have gained besides them five talents more.’
21 His master said unto him, ‘Well done, you good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter you into the joy of your master.
22 He also that had received two talents came and said, ‘Master, you deliveredst unto me two talents; behold, I have gained two other talents besides them.’
23 His master said unto him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter you into the joy of your master.’
24 Then he that had received the one talent came and said, ‘Master, I knew you that you are a hard man, reaping where you have not sown, and gathering where you have not strawed.
25 And I was afraid, and went and hid your talent in the earth. Behold, there you have that is yours.’
26 His master answered and said unto him, ‘You wicked and slothful servant, you knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed.
27 You oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury.
28 Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him who hath ten talents.
29 For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance; but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath.
30 And cast you the unprofitable servant into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’
31 When the Son of man (haMashiach) shall come in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then shall He sit upon the throne of His glory.
32 And before Him shall be gathered all nations; and He shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats.
33 And He shall set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left.
34 Then shall the King say unto them on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
35 For I was hungry, and you gave Me food; I was thirsty, and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger, and you took Me in;
36 Naked, and you clothed Me; I was sick, and you visited Me; I was in prison, and you came unto Me.
37 Then shall the righteous answer Him, saying, ‘Our Lord (Adonai), when saw we You hungry, and fed You? Or thirsty, and gave You drink?
38 When saw we You a stranger, and took You in? Or naked, and clothed You?
39 Or when saw we you sick, or in prison, and came unto You?’
40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, ‘Verily I say unto you, inasmuch as you have done it unto one of the least of these My brethren, you have done it unto Me.’
41 Then shall He say also unto them on the left hand, ‘Depart from Me, you cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels;
42 For I was hungry, and you gave Me no food; I was thirsty, and you gave me no drink;
43 I was a stranger, and you took Me not in; naked, and you clothed Me not; sick, and in prison, and you visited Me not.’
44 Then shall they also answer Him, saying, ‘Our Lord (Adonai), when saw we You hungry, or thirsty, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto You?’
45 Then shall He answer them, saying, ‘Verily I say unto you, inasmuch as you did it not to one of the least of these, you did it not to Me.’
46 And these shall go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”
And it came to pass, when YHWH had finished all these sayings, He said unto His disciples,
2 “You know that after two days is the B19Passover (Pesach), and the Son of man (haMashiach) will be betrayed to be crucified.”
3 Then assembled together the chief priests (kohanim), and the scribes, and the elders of the people, unto the palace of the high priest (kohen hagadol), who was called Caiaphas,
4 And consulted that they might take YHWH by subtilty, and kill Him.
5 But they said, “Not on the feast day, lest there be an uproar among the people.”
6 Now when YHWH was in Bethany, in the house of Shimon the leper,
7 There came unto Him a woman having an alabaster box of very precious ointment, and poured it on His head, as He sat at meat.
8 But when His disciples saw it, they had indignation, saying, “To what purpose is this waste?
9 For this ointment might have been sold for much, and given to the poor.”
10 When YHWH understood it, He said unto them, “Why trouble you the woman? For she hath wrought a good work upon Me.
11 For you have the poor always with you; but Me you have not always.
12 For in that she hath poured this ointment on My body, she did it for My burial.
13 Verily I say unto you, wheresoever this gospel (good news) shall be preached in the whole world, there shall also this, that this woman hath done, be told for a memorial of her.”
14 Then one of the twelve, called Judas Iscariot (Yehudah Ishkeriot), went unto the chief priests (kohanim),
15 And said unto them, “What will you give me, and I will deliver Him unto you?” And they covenanted with him for thirty pieces of silver. – Zec. 11:12
16 And from that time he sought opportunity to betray Him.
17 Now the first day of the B20Feast of Unleavened Bread (Chag HaMatzot) the disciples came to YHWH, saying unto Him, “Where wilt You that we prepare for You to eat the Passover (Pesach)?
18 And He said, “Go into the city to such a man, and say unto him, ‘The Teacher (Rabbi) saith, “My time is at hand; I will keep the Passover (Pesach) at your house with My disciples.”’”
19 And the disciples did as YHWH had appointed them; and they made ready the Passover (Pesach).
20 Now when the even came, He sat down with the twelve.
21 And as they did eat, He said, “Verily I say unto you, that one of you shall betray Me.”
22 And they were exceeding sorrowful, and began every one of them to say unto Him, “Lord (Adonai), is it I?”
23 And He answered and said, “He that dippeth his hand with Me in the dish, the same shall betray Me.”
24 The Son of man (haMashiach) goeth away as it is written of Him; but woe unto that man by whom the Son of man (haMashiach) is betrayed! It had been good for that man if he had not been born.”
25 Then Judas (Yehudah), who betrayed Him, answered and said, “Teacher (Rabbi), is it I?” He said unto him, “You have said.”
26 And as they were eating, YHWH took bread, and blessed it, and broke it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, “Take, eat; this is My body.”
27 And He took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, “Drink you all of it;
28 B58For this is My blood of the New Covenant (dam haBerit haChadashah), which is shed for many for the remission of sins.
29 But I say unto you, I will not drink from this time on of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in My Father’s kingdom.”
30 And when they had sung a hymn, they went out into the Mount of Olives.
31 Then saith YHWH unto them, “All you shall be stumbled because of Me this night, for it is written, ‘I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock shall be scattered abroad. – Zec.13:7
32 But after I am risen again, I will go before you into Galilee.”
33 Peter (Kefa) answered and said unto Him, “Though all men shall be stumbled because of You, yet I will never be stumbled.”
34 YHWH said unto him, “Verily I say unto you, that this night, before the cock crows, you shalt deny Me thrice.”
35 Peter (Kefa) said unto Him, “Though I should die with You, yet I will not deny You.” Likewise also said all the disciples.
36 Then cometh YHWH with them unto a place called Gethsemane, and saith unto the disciples, “Sit you here, while I go and pray over there.”
37 And he took with him Peter (Kefa) and the two sons of Zebedee (Zavdai), and began to be sorrowful and very heavy.
38 Then saith He unto them, “My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death; tarry you here, and watch with Me.”
39 And He went a little further, and fell on His face, and prayed, saying, “O My Father (Avi), if it be possible, let this cup pass from Me; nevertheless not as I will, but as You wilt.”
40 And He cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter (Kefa), “What, could you not watch with Me one hour?
41 Watch and pray, that you enter not into temptation; the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.”
42 He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, “O My Father, if this cup may not pass away from Me, except I drink it, Your will be done.”
43 And He came and found them asleep again, for their eyes were heavy.
44 And He left them, and went away again, and prayed the third time, saying the same words.
45 Then cometh He to His disciples, and saith unto them, “Sleep on now, and take your rest; behold, the hour is at hand, and the Son of man (haMashiach) is betrayed into the hands of sinners.
46 Rise, let us be going; behold, he is at hand that doth betray Me.”
47 And while He yet spake, behold, Judas (Yehudah), one of the twelve, came, and with him a great multitude with swords and staves, from the chief priests (kohanim) and elders of the people.
48 Now he that betrayed Him gave them a sign, saying, “Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is He; hold Him fast.”
49 And immediately he came to YHWH, and said, “Hail (Greetings), Teacher (Rabbi)!” and kissed Him.
50 And YHWH said unto him, “Friend, for what are you come?” Then came they, and laid hands on YHWH, and took Him.
51 And, behold, one of them who were with YHWH stretched out his hand, and drew his sword, and struck a servant of the high priest (kohen hagadol), and smote off his ear.
52 Then said YHWH unto him, “Put up again your sword into its place, for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword.
53 Thinkest you that I cannot now pray to My Father, and He shall presently give Me more than twelve legions of angels?
54 But how then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it must be?”
55 In that same hour said YHWH to the multitudes, “Are you come out as against a thief with swords and staves for to take Me? I sat daily with you teaching in the temple, and you laid no hold on Me.
56 But all this was done, that the scriptures of the prophets might be fulfilled.” Then all the disciples forsook Him, and fled.
57 And they that had laid hold on YHWH led Him away to Caiaphas the high priest (kohen hagadol), where the scribes and the elders were assembled.
58 But Peter (Kefa) followed Him afar off unto the high priest (kohen hagadol)’s palace, and went in, and sat with the servants, to see the end.
59 Now the chief priests (kohanim), and elders, and all the council (Sanhedrin), sought false witness against YHWH, to put Him to death;
60 But found none; yes, though many false witnesses came, yet found they none. At the last came two false witnesses,
61 And said, “This fellow said, ‘I am able to destroy the temple of God (Elohim), and to build it in three days.’”
62 And the high priest (kohen hagadol) arose, and said unto Him, “Answerest You nothing? What is it which these witness against You?”
63 But YHWH held His peace. And the high priest (kohen hagadol) answered and said unto Him, “I adjure You by the living God (Elohim chayim), that You tell us whether You are the Messiah (haMashiach), the B47Humanity of El (YHWH).
64 YHWH saith unto him, “You have said. Nevertheless I say unto you, hereafter shall you see the Son of man (haMashiach) sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.” – Dan. 7:13; Psa.110:1
65 Then the high priest (kohen hagadol) rent his clothes, saying, “He hath spoken blasphemy; what further need have we of witnesses? Behold, now you have heard His blasphemy!
66 What think you?” They answered and said, “He is guilty of death.”
67 Then did they spit in His face, and buffeted Him; and others smote Him with the palms of their hands,
68 Saying, “Prophesy unto us, You the Messiah (haMashiach)! Who is he that smote You?”
69 Now Peter (Kefa) sat outside in the palace; and a damsel came unto him, saying, “You also wast with YHWH of Galilee.”
70 But he denied before them all, saying, “I know not what you sayest.”
71 And when he was gone out into the porch, another maid saw him, and said unto them that were there, “This fellow was also with YHWH of Nazareth.”
72 And again he denied with an oath, I do not know the man.
73 And after a while came unto him they that stood by, and said to Peter (Kefa), “Surely you also art one of them; for your speech bewrayeth you.”
74 Then began he to curse and to swear, saying, “I know not the man.” And immediately the cock crew.
75 And Peter (Kefa) remembered the word of YHWH, who said unto him, “Before the cock crows, you shalt deny Me thrice.” And he went out, and wept bitterly.
When the morning came, all the chief priests (kohanim) and elders of the people took counsel against YHWH to put Him to death.
2 And when they had bound Him, they led Him away, and delivered Him to Pontius Pilate the governor.
3 Then Judas (Yehudah), who had betrayed Him, when he saw that he was condemned, repented himself, and brought again the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests (kohanim) and elders,
4 Saying, “I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood.” And they said, “What is that to us? See you to that.”
5 And he cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and departed, and went and hanged himself.
6 And the chief priests (kohanim) took the silver pieces, and said, “It is not lawful for to put them into the treasury, because it is the price of blood.”
7 And they took counsel, and bought with them the potter’s field, to bury strangers in.
8 Therefore that field was called ‘The Field of Blood’ unto this day.
9 Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy (Yirmeyahu) the prophet, saying, “And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the price of him that was valued, whom they of the children of Yisrael did value,
10 And gave them for the potter’s field, as יהוה appointed me. – Zec. 11:12,13
11 And YHWH stood before the governor; and the governor asked Him, saying, “Are You the King of the Jews (Yehudim)?” And YHWH said unto him, “You sayest.”
12 And when He was accused of the chief priests (kohanim) and elders, He answered nothing.
13 Then said Pilate unto Him, “Hearest You not how many things they witness against You?”
14 And He answered him not a word; insomuch that the governor marvelled greatly.
15 Now at that feast the governor was accustomed to release unto the people a prisoner, whom they wished.
16 And they had then a notable prisoner, called Barabbas.
17 Therefore when they were gathered together, Pilate said unto them, “Whom will you that I release unto you? Barabbas, or YHWH who is called the Messiah (haMashiach)?”
18 For he knew that for envy they had delivered Him.
19 When he was set down on the judgment seat, his wife sent unto him, saying, “Have you nothing to do with that just Man, for I have suffered many things this day in a dream because of Him.”
20 But the chief priests (kohanim) and elders persuaded the multitude that they should ask Barabbas, and destroy YHWH.
21 The governor answered and said unto them, “Which of the two will you that I release unto you?” They said, “Barabbas!”
22 Pilate saith unto them, “What shall I do then with YHWH who is called the Messiah (haMashiach)? They all say unto him, “Let Him be crucified.”
23 And the governor said, “Why, what evil hath He done?” But they cried out the more, saying, “Let Him be crucified.”
24 When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, “I am innocent of the blood of this just Person; see you to it.”
25 Then answered all the people, and said, “His blood be on us, and on our children.”
26 Then released he Barabbas unto them; and when he had scourged YHWH, he delivered Him to be crucified.
27 Then the soldiers of the governor took YHWH into the common hall, and gathered unto Him the whole band of soldiers.
28 And they stripped Him, and put on Him a scarlet robe.
29 And when they had platted a crown of thorns, they put it upon His head, and a reed in His right hand; and they bowed the knee before Him, and mocked Him, saying, “Hail, King of the Jews (Yehudim)!”
30 And they spit upon Him, and took the reed, and smote Him on the head.
31 And after that they had mocked Him, they took the robe off from Him, and put His own raiment on Him, and led Him away to crucify Him.
32 And as they came out, they found a man of Cyrene, Shimon by name; him they compelled to bear His stake.
33 And when they came unto a place called Golgotha, that is to say “a place of a skull”.
34 They gave Him vinegar to drink mingled with gall; and when He had tasted thereof, He would not drink.
35 And they crucified Him, and parted His garments, casting lots, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet: “They parted My garments among them, and upon My vesture did they cast lots. – Psa. 22:18
36 And sitting down they watched Him there;
37 And set up over His head His accusation written: THIS IS YHWH THE KING OF THE JEWS (YEHUDIM).
38 Then were there two thieves crucified with Him, one on the right hand, and another on the left.
39 And they that passed by reviled Him, wagging their heads, – Psa. 22:7
40 And saying, “You that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days, save Yourself. If you be the B47Humanity of El (YHWH), come down from the stake.”
41 Likewise also the chief priests (kohanim) mocking Him, with the scribes and elders, said,
42 “He saved others; Himself He cannot save. If He be the King of Yisrael, let Him now come down from the stake, and we will believe Him.
43 He trusted in God (Elohim); let Him deliver Him now, if He will have Him; for He said, ‘I am the Humanity of El (YHWH).’” – Psa. 22:8
44 The thieves also, who were crucified with Him, insulted Him the same way.
45 Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour.
46 And about the ninth hour YHWH cried with a loud voice, saying, “Eli, Eli, lama shavaqtani? That is to say, “My God (Eli), My God (Eli), why have You forsaken Me?” – Psa. 22:1
47 Some of them that stood there, when they heard that, said, “This man calleth for Elijah (Eliyahu).”
48 And straightway one of them ran, and took a spunge, and filled it with vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave Him to drink. – Psa. 69:21
49 The rest said, “Let be, let us see whether Elijah (Eliyahu) will come to save Him.”
50 YHWH, when He had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up His Spirit.
51 And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent;
52 And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the holy ones which slept arose,
53 And came out of the graves after His resurrection, they went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.
54 Now when the centurion, and they that were with Him, watching YHWH, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, “Truly this was the B47Humanity of El (YHWH).”
55 And many women were there beholding afar off, who followed YHWH from Galilee, ministering unto Him;
56 Among whom was Mary (Miryam) Magdalene, and Mary (Miryam) the mother of James (Yaaqov) and Joseph (Yosef), and the mother of Zebedee (Zavdai)’s children.
57 When the even came, there came a rich man of Arimathaea, named Joseph (Yosef), who also himself was YHWH’s disciple;
58 He went to Pilate, and begged the body of YHWH. Then Pilate commanded the body to be delivered.
59 And when Joseph (Yosef) had taken the body, he wrapped it in a clean linen cloth,
60 And laid it in his own new tomb, which he had hewn out in the rock; and he rolled a great stone to the door of the sepulchre, and departed.
61 And there was Mary (Miryam) Magdalene, and the other Mary (Miryam), sitting over against the sepulchre.
62 Now the next day, that followed the day of the preparation, the chief priests (kohanim) and Pharisees came together unto Pilate,
63 Saying, “Sir, we remember that, that deceiver said, while He was yet alive, ‘After three days I will rise again.’
64 Command therefore that the sepulchre be made sure until the third day, lest His disciples come by night, and steal Him away, and say unto the people, ‘He is risen from the dead;’ so the last error shall be worse than the first.”
65 Pilate said unto them, “You have a watch; go your way, make it as sure as you can.”
66 So they went, and made the sepulchre sure, sealing the stone, and setting a watch.
In the end of the Shabbat, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary (Miryam) Magdalene and the other Mary (Miryam) to see the sepulchre.
2 And, behold, there was a great earthquake; for the angel of יהוה descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.
3 His countenance was like lightning, and His raiment white as snow.
4 And for fear of him, the keepers shook and became as dead men.
5 And the angel answered and said unto the women, “Fear not you, for I know that you seek YHWH, who was crucified.
6 He is not here for He is risen as He said. Come, see the place where He lay.
7 And go quickly, and tell His disciples that He is risen from the dead; and, behold, He goeth before you into Galilee; there shall you see Him. Behold, I have told you.”
8 And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy; and did run to bring His disciples word.
9 And as they went to tell His disciples, behold, YHWH met them, saying, “Rejoice.” And they came and held Him by the feet, and worshipped Him.
10 Then said YHWH unto them, “Be not afraid. Go tell My brethren that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see Me.”
11 Now when they were going, behold, some of the watch came into the city, and shewed unto the chief priests (kohanim) all the things that were done.
12 And when they were assembled with the elders, and had taken counsel, they gave large money unto the soldiers,
13 Saying, “Say you, His disciples came by night, and stole Him away while we slept.
14 And if this come to the governor’s ears, we will persuade him, and secure you.”
15 So they took the money, and did as they were taught; and this saying is commonly reported among the Jews (Yehudim) until this day.
16 Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into a mountain where YHWH had appointed them.
17 And when they saw Him, they worshipped Him; but some doubted.
18 And YHWH came and spake unto them, saying, “All power is given unto Me in heaven and on earth.
19 Go you therefore, and teach all nations, B59baptizing them in the name (hashem) of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit; – Acts 2:38
20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you; and, behold, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.” So be it (Amen).
