§ 8Mt. 12, 14.Mt. 12, 15.Mt. 12, 16.Mt. 12, 17.1And the Pharisees went out, and consulted together concerning him, that they2 might destroy him. And Jesus perceived, and removed thence: and great multitudes3 followed him; and he healed all of them: and he forbade them that they should4 not make him known:8 that the saying in Isaiah the prophet might be fulfilled, which said,
9And in those days Jesus went out to the mountain that he might pray, and he10 spent the night2 there in prayer to God. And when the morning was come, he called the disciples. And he went towards the sea: and there followed him much people11 from Galilee that he might pray,3 and from Judæa, and from Jerusalem, and from Idumæa, and from beyond Jordan, and from Tyre, and from Sidon, and from Decapolis;12 and great multitudes came unto him, which had heard what he did.Mk. 3, 9. And he spake to his disciples to bring him the boat because of the multitudes, that they13 might not throng him. And he healed many,Mk. 3, 10. so that they were almost falling on him4 on account of their seeking to get near him. And5 those that had14 plagues and unclean spirits,Arabic, p. 31 as soon as they beheld him,Mk. 3, 11.Mk. 3, 12.Lk. 6, 18.Lk. 6, 19. would fall, and15 cry out, and say, Thou art the Son of God. And he rebuked them much, that they16 should not make him known. And those that were under the constraint of6 unclean17 spirits were healed. And all of the crowd were seeking to come near7 him; because power went out from him, and he healed them all.
Mt. 5, 1a.Lk. 6, 13b.18, 19And when Jesus saw the multitudes, he went up to the mountain. And he called his disciples, and chose from them twelve; and they are those whom he named20 apostles: Simon, whom he named Cephas, and Andrew his brother,Lk. 6, 14.Lk. 6, 15.Lk. 6, 16.Lk. 6, 17a. and James and21 John, and Philip and Bartholomew, and Matthew and Thomas, and James the son22 of Alphæus, and Simon which was called the Zealot, and Judas the son of James,23 and Judas the Iscariot, being he that had betrayed him.8 And Jesus went down with them and stood in the plain, and the company of his disciples, and the great24 multitude of people. And these twelve he chose to be with him,Mk. 3, 14. and that he might25 send them to preach, and to have power to heal the sick and to cast out devils.
Lk. 6, 20.Mt. 5, 2.26Then he lifted up his eyes unto them, and opened his mouth, and taught them, and said,27Blessed are the poor in spirit: for the kingdom of heaven is theirs.Mt. 5, 3.Mt. 5, 4.Mt. 5, 5.Mt. 5, 6.28Blessed are the sorrowful: for they shall be comforted.
29Blessed are the humble: for they shall inherit the earth.
30Blessed are they that hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be satisfied.
31Blessed are the merciful: for on them shall be mercy.Mt. 5, 7.Mt. 5, 8.Mt. 5, 9.Mt. 5, 10.32Blessed are the pure in their hearts: for they shall see God.
33Blessed are the peacemakers:Arabic, p. 32 for they shall be called the sons of God.
34Blessed are they that were persecuted9 for righteousness’ sake: for the kingdom of heaven is theirs.
Lk. 6, 22a.Mt. 5, 11b.Mt. 5, 12.35Blessed are ye when men shall hate you, and separate you from them, and persecute you, and reproach you, and shall speak against you with all evil talk, for my36 sake, falsely. Then rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets before you.
Lk. 6, 24.Lk. 6, 25.37But woe unto you rich! for ye have received your consolation.
38Woe unto you that are satisfied! ye shall hunger.
Woe unto you that laugh now! ye shall weep and be sad.
Lk. 6, 26.39Woe unto you when men praise you! for so did their fathers use to do to the false prophets.
Lk. 6, 27.Mt. 5, 13.40Unto you do I say, ye which hear, Ye are the salt of the earth: if then the salt become tasteless, wherewith shall it be salted? For any purpose it is of no use, but41 is thrown outside, and men tread upon it. Ye are the light of the world.Mt. 5, 14.Mt. 5, 15. It is42 impossible that a city built on a mountain should be hid. Neither do they light a lamp and place it under a bushel, but on the lamp-stand, and it giveth light to all43 who are in the house. So shall1 your light shine before men, that they may see44 your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.Mt. 5, 16.Mk. 4, 22.Mk. 4, 23. There is nothing45 secret that shall not be revealed, or hidden that shall not be known. Whoever hath ears that hear, let him hear.
Mt. 5, 17.Mt. 5, 18.46Think not that I came to destroy the law or the prophets; I came not to destroy,47 but to complete. Verily I say unto you, Until heaven and earth shall pass, there shall not pass one point or one letter of the law, until all of it shall be48accomplished.Arabic, p. 33 Every one who shall violate now one of these small commandments, and shall teach men so,Mt. 5, 19. shall be called lacking in the kingdom of heaven: every one that shall do and teach shall2 be called great in the kingdom49 of heaven. I say unto you now,Mt. 5, 20. unless your righteousness abound more than that of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall not enter the kingdom of heaven.
Mt. 5, 21.Mt. 5, 22.50Ye have heard that it was said to the ancients, Do not kill; and every one that51 killeth is worthy of the judgement. But I say unto you that every one who is angry with his brother without a cause is worthy of the judgement; and every one that saith to his brother, Thou foul one, is condemned3 by the synagogue; and whosoever52 saith to him, Thou fool, is worthy of the fire of Gehenna.Mt. 5, 23. If thou art now offering thy gift at the altar, and rememberest there that thy brother hath conceived53 against thee any grudge, leave thy gift at the altar,Mt. 5, 24.Mt. 5, 25a.Lk. 12, 58a. and go first and satisfy thy54 brother, and then return and offer thy gift. Join4 thine adversary quickly, and while thou art still with him in the way, give a ransom and free thyself from him;55 lest thine adversary deliver thee to the judge,Mt. 5, 25c.Mt. 5, 26. and the judge deliver thee to the tax-collector,56 and thou fall into prison. And verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt not go out thence until thou payest the last farthing.
Mt. 5, 27.Mt. 5, 28.57, 58Ye have heard that it was said, Do not commit adultery: but I now say unto you, that every one that looketh at a woman lusting after her hath forthwith already59 committed adultery with her in his heart.Mt. 5, 29. If thy right eye injure thee, put it out and cast it from thee;Arabic, p. 34 for it is preferable for thee that one of thy60 members should perish, and not thy whole body go into the fire of hell.Mt. 5, 30. And if thy right hand injure thee, cut it off and cast it from thee; and it is better for thee that61 one of thy members should perish, and not thy whole body fall into Gehenna.Mt. 5, 31. It was said that he that putteth away his wife should give her a writing of divorcement:62 but I say unto you, that every one that putteth away his wife,Mt. 5, 32. except for the cause of adultery, hath made it lawful for5 her to commit adultery: and whosoever taketh one that is put away committeth adultery.
