§ 13Mt. 10, 16.Mt. 10, 17.Mt. 10, 18.1I am sending you as lambs among wolves: be ye now wise as serpents, and2 harmless4 as doves. Beware of men: they shall deliver you to the councils of the3 magistrates, and scourge you in their synagogues; and shall bring you before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them and against the nations.4 And when they deliver you up, be not5 anxious, nor consider beforehand,Mt. 10, 19.Mt. 10, 20.Mt. 10, 21. what ye5 shall say; but ye shall be given6 in that hour what ye ought to speak. Ye do not6 speak, but the Spirit of your Father speaketh in you. The brother shall deliver up his brother to death, and the father his son; and the sons shall rise against their7 parents, and put them to death. And ye shall be hated of every man because of8 my name; but he that endureth unto the end of the matter shall be saved.7Mt. 10, 22.Mt. 10, 23. When they expel you from this city, flee to another. Verily I say unto you, Ye shall not finish all the cities of the people of Israel, until the Son of man come.
Mt. 10, 24.Mt. 10, 25.9, 10A disciple is not superior to his lord, nor a servant to his master. For it is enough then for the disciple that he be as his lord, and the servant as his master. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebul, how much more the people Mt. 10, 26.Mt. 10, 27a.Lk. 12, 3b.Lk. 12, 4a.Mt. 10, 28b.11of his house! Fear them not therefore:1 for there is nothing covered, that shall12 not be revealed; nor hid, that shall not be disclosed and published. What I say unto you in the darkness, speak ye in the light;Arabic, p. 51 and what ye have told13 secretly in the ears in closets, let it be proclaimed on the housetops. I say unto you now, my beloved, Be not agitated at2 those who kill the body, but have no power to14 kill the soul. I will inform you whom ye shall fear:Lk. 12, 5.Mt. 10, 29. him3 which is able to destroy15 soul and body in hell. Yea, I say unto you, Be afraid of him especially. Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing in a bond?4 and one of them shall not fall on the16 ground without your Father. But what concerns you:Mt. 10, 30.Mt. 10, 31.Mt. 10, 32. even the hair of your heads17, 18 also is numbered. Fear not therefore; ye are better than many sparrows. Every man who confesseth me now before men, I also will confess him before my Father19 which is in heaven; but whosoever denieth me before men,Mt. 10, 33. I also will deny him before my Father which is in heaven.
20Think ye that I am come to cast peace into the earth? I came not to cast peace,Lk. 12, 51.Lk. 12, 52.Lk. 12, 53.21 but to cast dissension. Henceforth there shall be five in one house, three of them22 disagreeing with two, and the two with the three. The father shall become hostile to his son, and the son to his father; and the mother to her daughter, and the daughter to her mother; and the mother in law to her daughter in law, and the daughter23 in law to her mother in law: and a man’s enemies shall be the people of his house.Mt. 10, 36.Mt. 10, 37.24 Whosoever loveth father or mother better than me is not worthy of me; and whosoever loveth son or daughter more than his love of me is not worthy of me.Arabic, p. 5225 And every one that doth not take his cross and follow me is not worthy of26 me. Whosoever findeth his life5 shall lose it; and whosoever loseth his life for my sake shall find it.Mt. 10, 38.Mt. 10, 39.
Mt. 10, 40.Mt. 10, 41.27And whosoever receiveth you receiveth me; and whosoever receiveth me receiveth28 him that sent me. And whosoever receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet shall take6 a prophet’s reward; and whosoever shall receive a righteous man29 in the name of a righteous man shall take a righteous man’s reward.Mt. 10, 42a. And every one that shall give to drink to one of these least ones a drink of water only, in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall not lose his reward.Mk. 9, 41b.Mt. 11, 1.Lk. 10, 38.
30And when Jesus finished charging his twelve disciples, he removed thence to31 teach and preach in their cities. And while they were going in the way they entered into a certain village; and a woman named Martha entertained him in her house.32 And she had a sister named Mary, and she came and sat at the feet of our Lord,Lk. 10, 39.Lk. 10, 40.33 and heard his sayings. But Martha was disquieted by much serving; and she came and said unto him, My Lord, givest thou no heed that my sister left me alone to34 serve? speak to her that she help me. Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha,Lk. 10, 41.Lk. 10, 42.35 Martha, thou art solicitous and impatient7 on account of many things: but what is sought is one thing. But Mary hath chosen for herself a good portion, and that which shall not be taken from her.
Mk. 6, 12.Mk. 6, 13.Lk. 7, 18.Mt. 11, 2a.Lk. 7, 19.36And the apostles went forth, and preached to the people that they might repent.37 And they cast out many devils, and anointed many sick with oil, and healed them.38, 39 And the disciples of John told him8 of all these things. And when John heard in the prison of the doings of the Messiah,Arabic, p. 53 he called two of his disciples, and sent them to Jesus, and said, Art thou he that cometh, or look we for40 another? And they came to Jesus, and said unto him, John the Baptist hath sent41 us unto thee, and said, Art thou he that cometh, or look we for another?Lk. 7, 20.Lk. 7, 21. And in that hour he cured many of diseases, and of plagues of an evil spirit; and he gave sight42 to many blind. Jesus answered and said unto them,Lk. 7, 22. Go and tell John everything ye have seen and heard: the blind see, and the lame walk, and the lepers are cleansed, and the blind9 hear, and the dead rise, and the poor have the gospel preached to43 them. And blessed is he who doubteth not in me.Lk. 7, 23.
Lk. 7, 24.44And when John’s disciples departed, Jesus began to say to the multitudes concerning John, What went ye out into the wilderness to see? a reed shaken with the45 winds? And if not, then what went ye out to see?Lk. 7, 25. a man clothed in soft raiment? Behold, they that are in magnificent garments and in voluptuousness are in the abode46 of kings. And if not, then what went ye out to see? a prophet?Lk. 7, 26.Lk. 7, 27. Yea, I say unto47 you, and more than a prophet. This is he of whom it is written,
