- And he put foorth a parable vnto them, to this ende that me ought alwayes to pray, & not to be weery,
- Saying: There was in a certayne citie, a iudge, whiche feared not God, neither regarded man.
- And there was a certayne widdowe in the same citie, and she came vnto him, saying: Auenge me of mine aduersarie.
- And he woulde not for a whyle.
But afterwarde he sayde within hym selfe: Though I feare not God, nor care for man,
- Yet because this widdowe [much] troubleth me, I wyll auenge her: leste she come at the last, & make me weery.
- And the Lorde sayde: heare what the vuryghteous iudge sayeth.
- And shall not God auenge his elect, which crye day and nyght vnto hym?
yea, though he deferre them,
- I tell you he wyll auenge them, and that quickly.
Neuerthelesse, when the sonne of man commeth, shall he fynde fayth on the earth?
- And he tolde this parable vnto certayne which trusted in them selues, that they were perfect, and despised other.
- Two men went vp into the temple to pray: the one a pharisee, and the other a publicane.
- The pharisee stoode and prayed thus with hym selfe: God, I thanke thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, vniust, adulterers, or as this publicane.
- I fast twise in the weeke, I geue tithe of all that I possesse.
- And the publicane standyng a farre of, woulde not lyft vp his eyes to heauen, but smote vpon his brest, saying: God be mercifull to me a sinner.
- I tell you, this man departed [home] to his house iustified, rather then the other.
For euery one that exalteth hym selfe, shalbe brought lowe: And he that humbleth hym selfe, shalbe exalted.
- They brought vnto him also infantes that he should touch them: Which, whe his disciples sawe it, they rebuked the.
- But Iesus, when he had called them vnto hym, saide, Suffer chyldre to come vnto me, and forbyd them not: For of such is the kyngdome of God.
- Ueryly I say vnto you: Whosoeuer receaueth not the kyngdome of God, as a chylde, shall not enter therin.
- And a certayne ruler asked hym, saying: Good maister, what ought I to do, to possesse eternall lyfe?
- Iesus sayde vnto hym: Why callest thou me good?
None is good, saue God onely.
- Thou knowest the commaundementes: Thou shalt not commit adultrie, thou shalt not kyll, thou shalt not steale, thou shalt not beare false witnesse, honour thy father and thy mother.
- And he sayde: all these haue I kept from my youth vp.
- When Iesus hearde that, he sayde vnto hym: Yet lackest thou one thyng.
Sell all that thou hast, and distribute vnto the poore, & thou shalt haue treasure in heauen, and come, folowe me.
- When he hearde this, he was very sory, for he was very riche.
- When Iesus sawe that he was sory, he sayde: With what difficultie shall they that haue money, enter into the kyngdome of God?
- For it is easier for a camel to go through a nedles eye, then for a riche man to enter into the kyngdome of God.
- And they that hearde it, sayde: And who can then be saued?
- And he sayde: The thynges which are vnpossible wih men, are possible with God.
- Then Peter sayde: Lo, we haue forsaken all, and folowed thee.
- He sayde vnto them.
Ueryly I say vnto you: there is no man that hath forsaken house, either father, or mother, either brethren, or wyfe, or chyldren, for the kyngdome of Gods sake.
- Which shall not receaue much more in this worlde, and in the worlde to come, lyfe euerlastyng.
- Iesus toke vnto hym the twelue, and sayde vnto them: Beholde, we go vp to Hierusalem, and all thynges shalbe fulfylled to the sonne of man, that are written by the prophetes.
- For he shalbe deliuered vnto the gentiles, and shalbe mocked, and spitefully entreated, and spitted on:
- And when they haue scourged hym, they wyll put hym to death.
And the thyrde day he shall aryse agayne.
- And they vnderstoode none of all these thynges.
And this saying was hyd from them, so that they perceaued not the thynges which were spoken.
- And it came to passe, that as he was come nie vnto Hierico, a certayne blynde man sate by the wayes syde, beggyng.
- And when he hearde the people passe by, he asked what it meant.
- And they sayde vnto hym, that Iesus of Nazareth passed by.
- And he cryed, saying: Iesu thou sonne of Dauid, haue mercie on me.
- And they which went before, rebuked hym, that he shoulde holde his peace: But he cryed so much the more, thou sonne of Dauid, haue mercie on me.
- And Iesus stoode styll, & commaunded hym to be brought vnto hym.
And whe he was come neare, he asked him,
- Saying: What wylt thou that I do vnto thee?
And he saide: Lorde, that I may receaue my syght.
- And Iesus sayde vnto hym: receaue thy syght, thy fayth hath saued thee?
- And immediatly he receaued his sight, and folowed hym, praysyng God: And all the people, when they sawe [it,] gaue prayse vnto God.
