THE GOOD NEWS ACCORDING TO LUKE

                                                       

 1 Since many have undertaken to compile an account of the events that took place among us, 2 sec-ond in them transmitted the who from the beginning were eyewitnesses and ministers of the word, 3 to me also, after having investigated everything carefully from the beginning, it seemed good to me, most noble Teo-filo, write you a story in order; 4 for full-res knows the truth of things that thou wast truído-ins. 5 There was in the days of Herod, king of Yehudah, a priest named Zekharyah, the class of Aviyah, and his wife was a descendant of Aaron, and her name was Eli-sheva. 6 And they were both righteous before God’s eternal, giving an-blameless in all the commandments and precepts of Y’HWH. 7 But they had no child, because Eli-sheva was barren, and both were advanced in years. 8 Now as he was serving as priest before the eternal God, in order of his course, 9 according to the custom of the priesthood, it fell to him by lot to enter the sanctuary of the Lord to burn incense, 10 And the whole multitude of people were praying outside at the hour of in-censo.11 appeared to him then Y’HWH of an angel, standing to the right of the altar of incense. 12 And Zekhariah saw him, he was troubled, and fear, assailed. 13 But the angel said unto them, Fear not Zekharyah: for thy prayer is heard, and Elisheva, your wife will give birth to a son, and they shall call his name Yochanan, 14 and thou shalt have joy and gladness, and many will rejoice at his birth, 15 for he will be great before the Lord Y’HWH; shall drink neither wine nor strong drink, and be filled with the Spirit, the Ghost, even from his mother’s womb, 16 to convert many of the children of Y’HWH Israel to their God, 17 will go before him in the spirit and power, as Eliahu, to turn the hearts of the children to the Father, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just, to prepare for the Lord a people Y’HWH realized. Zekharyah 18 Then said the angel, How shall I know this? For I am an old man and my wife well stricken in years. 19 And the angel answered him: I am Gabri’el Y’HWH who stand before the eternal God, and was sent

talk to you and give you this good news, 20 and behold, thou shalt be dumb, and not able to speak until the day that these things happen, because you did not believe my words, that in his time they will be fulfilled. 21 The people were waiting Zekharyah, and wondered at his delay in the sanctuary. 22 When he came out, he could not speak to them, and realized they had seen a vision in the sanctuary. And talked to him by nods, but remained silent. 23 And when the days of his ministry, he returned home. 24 After these days Elisheva, his wife conceived, and hid herself five months, saying, 25 Thus hath the Lord Y’HWH day he looked at me, to take away my reproach among men. 26 Now in the sixth month (Elul Heb.), was the Gabri’el angel sent from God unto a city of Galil, called Natzeret, 27 to a girl betrothed to a man whose name was Yoseh, chief of the house of David; and the girl’s name was Miriam. 28 And he came in unto where she was said Shalom highly favored, the Lord is with thee Y’HWH, 29, but she has to hear these words, he was troubled too and began to think that greeting this might be. 30 I told him then the angel, Fear not: Myriam for thou hast found favor with God’s eternal. 31 Thou Thou shalt conceive, and bear a son, and shalt call his name Yehoshu ‘(Heb. At Iolédet well vecarát Et Shmo Yehoshu’). 32 This will be great and will be called Son of the Most High; Y’HWH the Lord God will give Him the throne of David his father: 33 and he shall reign over the house of Ya’acov, and his kingdom will have no end. 34 Then Myriam asked the angel: How shall this be, since I am a virgin? 35 The angel answered him: the Spirit shall come upon thee, the Holy, the power of the Most High will cover you with its shadow, so what is born will be called holy, the Son of the Most High God Y’HWH. 36 Behold also Elisheva, your relative has also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month for her who was called barren; Y’HWH 37 For the eternal God nothing shall be impossible. 38 Then said Myriam: Behold the handmaid of the Lord, be it unto me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her. 39 In those days rose Myriam, was rushed to the region mon-tanhosa, to a city of Judah, 40 entered the house of Zekharyah and greeted Elisheva. 41 When Elisheva heard the salutation of Myriam; the babe leaped in her womb, and Elisheva was filled with the Spirit, 42 and cried aloud: Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb! 43 And whence comes this to me, come to me that the mother of my Lord? 44 For as soon as I rang in the ears the voice of your greeting, the baby leaped for joy inside me. 45 And blessed is she who believed that they will comply with the things of the Lord was spoken to her. 46 Then said Myriam: Y’HWH the Lord be magnified, 47 my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, 48 because they regarded the humble (or impoverished) of his servant. Henceforth, therefore, all generations will call me blessed, 49 for the Mighty One has done great things to me, and holy is his name. 50 And his mercy is from generation to generation on those who fear him. 51 With your arm showed strength, scattered the proud in the thoughts of their hearts; 52 testified, the powerful from their thrones, and lifted up the lowly. 53 To the hungry filled with good things, and sent the rich away empty. 54 He has helped Israel his servant, remembering mercy 55 (As he spake to our fathers) to their descendants and with Abhamom-dence for sempre.56 And Myriam stayed with her about three months, and returned to his home. 57 Now added to Elisheva time to give birth, and had a son. 58 neighbors and relatives heard that the Lord had magnified his mercy, and rejoiced with her. 59 And it was so, on the eighth day they came to circumcise the child, and wanted to give him the name of his father, Zekharyah. 60 He answered, though his mother at all, but will be called Y’ochanan. 61 And they said unto her, There is none of thy kindred that is called by this name. 62 And they asked for nod to his father, how he would have him called. 63 And he asked for a writing tablet, wrote: His name is Y’ochanan. And they were all amazed. 64 Immediately his mouth was opened and his tongue loosed, and he spoke, praising the eternal God. 65 And fear came upon all their neighbors, and throughout the hill country of Yehudeia all these things were disclosed. 66 And all who heard them laid them up in their hearts, saying, What shall become, then this boy? For the hand of Y’HWH the Lord was with him. 67-haryah Zek, his father was filled with the Spirit and prophesied, saying, 68 Blessed be the God of Israel Y’HWH because visited and redeemed his people 69 and has raised for us a horn of salvation in the house of David, your servant, 70 and since ancient times has spoken by the mouth of his holy prophets, 71 to deliver us from our enemies and from the hand of all who hate us; 72 to show mercy to our fathers, and to remember his holy covenant, 73 The oath to Abhamom our father, 74 To grant us that, freed from the hand of our enemies might serve him without fear, 75 in holiness and righteousness before Him all the days of our life. 76 And you, child, will be called prophet of the Most High, because it will Y’HWH before the face of the Lord to prepare his ways, 77 to give his people knowledge of salvation by the remission of their sins, 78 Through the tender mercy of our God, by which we will visit the dawn from on high 79 to give light to them that sit in darkness and the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace. 80 And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, and was in the deserts till the day of his manifestation to Israel. 2 In those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed. 2 This was the first enrollment made when Quirinius was governor of Syria. 3 And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city. 4 Yoseh also went up from Galil, the city of Natzeret the yehudeia, the city of David, called Bet Lehem Efrat, because he was of the house and lineage of David, 5 to be enrolled with Myriam, his wife, who was pregnant . 6 While they were there the time came that she had given birth, 7 and had her firstborn son, wrapped in swaddling and laid him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn. 8 And there were in the same country shepherds were in the fields, keeping watch over the night watches his flock. 9 And an angel of the Lord appeared Y’HWH them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and it is exceedingly afraid. 10 But the angel said unto them, Fear not I bring you good tidings of great joy which shall be to all the people: 11 today is that Vos was born in the city of David a Saviour, who is Christ the Lord. 12 And this shall be a sign unto you: Ye shall find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger. 13 Then suddenly ap-peared with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising Y’HWH the eternal God and saying, 14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among men; willingly. 15 And as soon as the angels withdrew him into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now Bet’léhem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about. 16 And they went in haste and found Myriam and Yoseh, and the babe lying in Manje-Brown, 17, and saw him, they spread the word concerning this child was told them 18 and all who heard it wondered what the shepherds told them. 19 Myriam, po-ever, kept all these things, pondering them in her heart. 20 And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising the eternal God for all they had seen as they were told. 21 And when eight days were fulfilled for the circumcision of the child, he was given the name Yehoshu ‘, which by the angel before he was conceived to be. 22 And when the days of her purification according to the Law of the Torah Mosheh, led him to Yehoshaléym to introduce you Y’HWH 23 (as it is written in the Torah, the Law of the Lord: Every firstborn will be devoted to Y’H- WH), 24 and to offer a sacrifice according to the provisions laid down in ceremonial, in the law of the Lord, A pair of turtledoves, or two young pigeons. 25 Now there was a man in Yehoshaléym whose name was Shimeom, and this man was righteous and devout Y’HWH, awaiting the consolation of Israel: and the Spirit was upon him. 26 And it had been revealed by the Spirit that he would not die before seeing the Messiah of the Lord Y’HWH. 27 Thus by the Spirit into the temple: and when the parents brought in the child Yehoshu ‘to do rem for him after the custom of the law, 28 Shimeom took him in his arms and blessed Y’HWH the eternal God, and said : 29 Now, Lord dismiss your servant in peace, according to thy word: 30 For my eyes have seen your salvation, 31 which thou hast prepared before the face of all peoples, 32 a light for revelation to the Gentiles, and for the glory of thy people Israel.33 Meanwhile, his father and mother wondered at the things which were spoken of him. Shimeom 34 And blessed them and said to Myriam, boy’s mother: Behold this child is set for the fall and rising of many in Israel, and to be subject to contradiction, 35 yes, a sword and pierce yourself, so that is mani-festem the thoughts of many hearts. 36 There was also a prophetess, Hannah, daughter of P’nu’el the tribe of Osher. She was advanced in years, having lived with a husband seven years from her virginity; 37 and was a widow of about fourscore years. She never left the temple, serving God eternal night and day, fasting and prayers. 38 Che-gando the same time she gave thanks to God eternal, and spoke of him to all them that looked for redemption in Yehoshaléym. 39 So they did everything according to the law of the Lord, they returned to Galil, to their city Nazareth. 40 And the child grew and is talecendo-up, filled with wisdom: and the grace of Y’HWH was upon him. 41 Now his parents went every year to Yehoshaléym, the feast of the passover. 42 When Yehoshu ‘twelve years old, they went up according to the custom of the feast, for the mitzvah, 43, and finished the days, as they returned, the boy was Yeshu’ in-Yehosha láym without knowing their fathers, 44 judging, however, he was among the fellow travelers; walked a day’s journey, and sought him among their kinsfolk and acquaintances; 45 and finding none, returned to Yehoshaléym in search of him. 46 And it came to pass, after three days they found him in the temple, sitting among the teachers, listening to them, and asking them questions. 47 And all who heard him were amazed at his understanding and his answers. 48 When they saw him, they were amazed: and his mother said to him: Son, why have you done this to us? Behold, thy father and I, anxious, looking for you. 49 Respon-he gave them: Why you looking for me? Do you not know that I had is in my father’s house? 50 But they did not understand the words they said. 51 Then des-cendo with them came to Nazareth, and was subject unto them. And his mother kept all these things in her heart. 52 And grew Yehoshu ‘in wisdom and stature and in favor with Y’HWH and men.

3rd. In the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar, Pontius Pilate being governor of yehudeia, Herod te-trarca the region of Galil and his brother Philip, and the Ituraea Trachonitis, and Lysanias tetrarch of Abilene, 2 Hanah and Kayafa being high priests, came the word of the eternal God Y’HWH Y’ochanan the son of Zekharyah in the desert. 3 And he came into all the region round Iahen, preaching a baptism of repentance for the remission of sins, 4 as it is written in the book of the prophet’s words Yeshayáhuh: The voice of one crying in the wilderness: ‘Prepare the ca-minho of Y’HWH; make straight His paths. 5 Every valley shall be filled, and every mountain and hill will fall, and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough ways shall be made smooth; 6 and all flesh shall see the salvation of the eternal God. 7 Y’ochanan said therefore to the multitudes that came forth to be baptized of him, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the coming wrath? 8 Bring forth therefore fruits worthy of repentance, and begin not to say within yourselves, We have Abhamom by father: for I say unto you that out of these stones God can raise up children unto eternal Abhamom. 9 And now the ax is laid to the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit, is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 10 When they asked him the crowds: What shall we do then? 11 He answered them then: He who has two coats give to him who has none, and whoever has food do likewise. 12 Tax collectors also came to be baptized, and said unto him, Master, what shall we do? 13 He said to them: Do not you cobreis beyond what was prescribed. 14 interrogated him also some soldiers: And what shall we do? He told them: No one wants to extort anything, nor bear false complaint, and be content with your wages. 15 Now the people were in expectation, and reasoning in their hearts all about Y’ochanan if perhaps he would be the Messiah, 16 res-lation replied Y’ochanan all, saying, I indeed baptize you with water, but cometh one mightier than I, who am not worthy to untie the thong of sandals: he shall baptize in the Spirit, and with fire. 17 His winnowing fork is in his hand to clear his threshing floor well, and gather the wheat into his barn, but burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire. 18 Thus, as with many other exor-tions also announced the good news to the people. 19 But Herod the tetrarch, being reproved by him for Herodiah, his brother’s wife, and for all the evils he had done, 20 added this also to them all, that he shut Y’ochanan in prison. 21 When all the people were baptized, having been Yehoshu ‘also baptized, and as he was praying, heaven opened, and the Spirit 22; descended on him in bodily form like a dove, and heard this voice from heaven: Thou are my beloved Son, in thee I am well pleased. 23 Now Yehoshu ‘, when he began his ministry, was about thirty years, being (as was supposed) the son of Yoseh, son Eli, 24 Matat of Eli’, Matat ‘of Yllavé (Levi), Yllavé of Malki, Malki of Yannai.

Yehoshu 4 ‘, being full of the Spirit, returned from the Iahen, and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness 2 during forty days, being tempted by the devil. And in those days he did eat nothing: and when they were ended he was hungry. 3 Then I told him the Devil: If thou be the Son of the eternal God, command this stone to become bread. 4 Yehoshu ‘, however, answered him: It is written in the Torah: Not by bread alone doth man live. 5 Then the devil, taking him to a high place and showed him in a flash all the kingdoms of the world. 6 And he said to him: Give unto thee all the authority and glory of them, because I was given, and to whom I will give; 7 if thou therefore worship me, all shall be thine. 8 Yehoshu answered him ‘It is written in the Torah: The Y’HWH thy God worship, and serve him only. 9 And he brought him to Yehoshalá-ym and placed on the pinnacle of the temple and said to him: If thou be the Son of the eternal God, cast thyself down to; 10 because it is written in the Torah: At his angels charge concerning you that you guard; 11 and they shall bear thee up in their hands to ever stumble into some pedra.12 Yehoshu answered him ‘: It is said not to try Y’HWH thy God. 13 And the devil taking over every temptation, he departed from him until the opportune time. 14 Then returned Yehoshu ‘for Galil in the power of the Spirit, and his fame went throughout all the country. 15 And he taught in their synagogues, being glorified by all. 16 Getting to Nazareth where he had been created and entered into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, as was his custom, and stood up to read. 17 It was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Isaiah, and opening it, found the place where it was written, 18 The Spirit; Y’HWH is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach good news to the poor, He has sent me to proclaim pair liber-tion to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed, 19 to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord. 20 And he closed the book, gave it back to the attendant and sat down, and the eyes of all in the synagogue were phyto him. 21 Then, he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears. 22 And they gave their testimony, and marveled at the gracious words coming out of his mouth, and said, This is not the son of Yoseh? 23 He told them Yehoshu ‘: No doubt you will say to me this proverb, Physician, heal thyself; All I heard we made in teres K’farNachum, do also here in thy country. 24 And he said, Verily I say unto you, No prophet is accepted in his hometown. 25 Verily I say unto you there were many widows in Israel in the days of Eliahu, when the heaven was shut up three years and six months, so that there was a great famine throughout all the land; 26 and none of them; Eliahu was sent, but the a widow in Zarephath in Sidon. 27 And many lepers were in Israel in the time of the prophet Elishuab, but none of them was cleansed except Naaman the Syrian. 28 All who were in the synagogue, when they heard these things, were filled with wrath, 29 and rose up, drove him out of town and took him to the brow of the hill whereon their city was built, thence to the cliff. 30 But he passing through the midst of them, went his way. 31 Then came the K’farNachum city of Galil, and taught them on the sabbath. 32 And they were astonished at his doctrine: for his word was with power. 33 There was in their synagogue a man who had a spirit of an unclean devil, and cried aloud: 34 Ah! What we have with you, Yeshu ‘of Natzeret? Vieste destroy us? I know thee who thou art, the Holy of the eternal God. 35 But Yehoshu ‘rebuked him, saying, Here it yourself, and come out of him. And the devil, taking him down to the ground among the people, came out of him without doing him any harm. 36 And they were all amazed, and spoke among themselves, asking each other: What is this pa-mining for with authority and power commands the unclean spirits, and they come out? 37 And if his fame spread abroad everywhere the surroundings. 38 And rising Yehoshu ‘, left the synagogue and entered the house of Shimom, and, standing on the mother of Shimom sick with a high fever, they besought him for her. 39 And he, tilt-ing to her, rebuked the fever, and it left her. Immediately she rose and served him. 40 At sunset, all who were sick with various diseases brought them to him, and he laid his hands on every one of them and healed them. 41 Also leaving many demons, screaming and saying, Thou art the Son of the eternal God. But he rebuked them and would not let them speak: for they knew that he was the Messiah 42 At daybreak he departed and went into a desert place: and the multitudes sought him and came to him, wanted to stop him so that not depart from them. 43 But he said unto them, It is necessary that the other towns also I announce the Good News of the Kingdom of God eternal, because for therefore am I sent. 44 And he preached in the synagogues of Yehudéia.

5th. Once, when the crowd pressed Yehoshu ‘to hear the word of the eternal God, he stood by the lake of Gennesaret, 2 and saw two boats standing by the lake: but the fishermen had gone out of them and were washing their nets. 3 Joining him one of the boats, which was to Shimom, asked him to put out, a bit of ground, and sitting taught; boat to the crowds. 4 When he had finished speaking, he said to Shimom: Make yourself off and cast your nets for a catch. 5 When you Shimom said: Master, we worked all night and caught nothing, but at thy word I will let down the nets. 6 Having done this, they caught a lot of fish, so that the nets were broken. 7 they beckoned to their partners that were in the other boat to come and help them. And they came and filled both boats, ma-toms that they began to sink. 8 Seeing this Shimom Kefah, prostrated himself at the feet of Yehoshu ‘, saying: Depart from me, Lord, for I am a sinful man. 9 For sight fishing they had done, the surprise will come upon him and all who were with him as well as 10 and Ya’acov Y’ochanan, Zavidai sons, who were partners with Shimom. Yehoshu said ‘the Shimom Fear not: from henceforth thou shalt catch men. 11 And when they had brought their boats to land, they left everything and followed him. 12 While he was one of the cities, there came a man full of leprosy: who seeing the Yehoshu ‘, he fell with his face to the ground and begged him: Lord willing, thou canst make me clean. 13 Yehoshu ‘thus extending his hand, and touched him, saying, I will: be thou; clean. Instantly the leprosy left him. 14 He ordered him then to tell this to anyone. But vai, he said, show yourself to the priest and make the offering for your cleansing, as Mosheh determined for a testimony unto them. 15 His fame, however if increasingly publicized, and great multitudes came together to hear him and to be healed of their infirmities. 16 But he withdrew to the wilderness and prayed. 17 One day when he was teaching, found himself sat Pharisees and teachers of the law who had come from every village of Galil and Yehudéia, and Yehoshaléym; Y’HWH and power was with him to heal. 18 And behold, men brought in a bed a paralyzed man, tried to introduce it and put it in the middle before him. 19 But not by finding where they could bring him in because of the crowd, climbed to the roof and through the tiles, with the lowered bed, into the midst of all, before Yehoshu ‘. 20 And seeing his faith, said to him: Man, you are forgiven our sins. 21 And the scribes and the Pharisees began to reason, saying, Who is this that speaks blasphemy? Who can forgive sins but God only eternal? Yehoshu 22 ‘, however, perceiving their thoughts, answered and said unto them, Why reason ye in your hearts? 23 Which is easier? Say: They are forgiven thee thy sins, or to say, Arise, and walk? 24 But that ye may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins, (he saith to the sick of the palsy), I say unto thee, Arise, take up thy bed, and go to your house. 25 And immediately he rose up before them, took the bed where he lay, and went to his house, glorifying the eternal God. 26 And, filled with amazement, all glorified the God eternal, filled with awe and said: Today we saw things former traordinárias. 27 Then went out and saw a tax collector named Yllavé sitting at, told him: Follow me. 28 This left all, rose up and followed him. 29 Yllavé then gave him one autobanquete in your home; There were many tax collectors and others who were with him at the table. 30 murmured therefore the Pharisees and their scribes against his disciples, saying, Why you eat and drink with publicans and sinners? 31 He answered them Yehoshu ‘: not the healthy who need a physician, but the sick; 32 I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. 33 They said to him: ‘disciples Y’ochanan fast often and make prayers, and likewise those of the Pharisees, but yours eat and drink. 34 answered Yehoshu ‘: Can you, perhaps, make the wedding guests fast while the bridegroom is with them? 35 Days will come, however, when the bridegroom will be taken away; those days, yes, they will fast. 36 He told them a parable also: No one tears a piece from a new dress to sew on an old garment: otherwise there will tear the new, but also not condirá piece of the new with the old. 37 And no one puts new wine into old bottles: else the new wine will burst the bottles, and be spilled, and the wineskins will be lost; 38 But new wine must be put into new bottles. 39 And no one after drinking old wine desires new: for he saith, The old is good.

6 And it came to pass one day in shabate, passed Yehoshu ‘by cornfields, and his disciples plucked the ears and rubbing them in their hands, ate them. 2 Some of the Pharisees, however, asked: Why are you doing what is not lawful to do on a Saturday? 3 Yehoshu ‘answering them, said: Not even you read what David did when you were hungry, he and his companions? 4 How he entered the house of the eternal God, took the shewbread, which was not lawful to eat but for the priests alone, and he ate and gave also to his companions? 5 And said unto them, The Son of man is Lord of the Sabbath. 6 In yet another Shabath entered the synagogue, and set up to teach. There was a man who ti-nha right hand withered. 7 And the scribes and the Pharisees watched him to see whether he would heal in a shabate, they might find an accusation against him. 8 But he, knowing their thoughts, said to the man who had the withered hand, Rise up, and stand here in the middle. And he arose and stood. 9 And he said to them, then Yehoshu ‘: I ask you: Is it lawful on the Sabbath to do good or to do evil? Save life or to kill? 10 And looking around at them all, said to the man: Stretch forth your hand, He did so, and his hand was restored. 11 But they were filled with wrath, and with each other about what would conferenciavam the Yehoshu ‘. 12 In those days he withdrew to the mountain to pray, and spent the whole night in prayer to God eternal. 13 After dawn, he called his disciples and chose twelve of them, whom he also named apostles: 14 Shimom, whom he also named Kefah, and Andrew his brother; Ya’acov and Y’ochanan, Philip and son of Talmai, 15 Mattatyahuh and T’om; Ya’acov, son of Alpheus, and Shimom, called the Zealot, 16 Yehuda, son of Ya’acov, and the Kiriote Yehuda, who became a traitor. 17 And Yehoshu ‘down with them and stood on a level place where there was not only a large number of disciples, but also a great multitude of people from all Yehudéia and Yehoshaléym, and the coast of Tzor and Tsidom, who had come to hear him and to be healed of their diseases; 18 and those who were tormented by unclean spirits were cured. 19 And the whole multitude sought to touch him, because he can get out and healed them all. 20 And he lifted up his eyes on his disciples, and said, Blessed be ye poor, for yours is the kingdom of God eternal. 21 Blessed are ye that hunger now because ye shall be filled. Blessed are you who weep now, for you shall laugh. 22 Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and you injuri-arem, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man. 23 Rejoice in that day and leap for joy, for behold, your reward is great in heaven: for so did their fathers unto the prophets. 24 More woe unto you that are rich! For ye have received your consolation. 25 Woe unto you that ye are full now! For ye shall hunger. Woe to you who rirdes now! For ye shall mourn and weep. 26 Woe to you when all men praise you! For so did their fathers to the false prophets. 27 But to you who hear I say, love your enemies, do good to them that hate you, 28 bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. 29 To him who strikes you on one side offer him the other also, and he who takes away your cloak, do not deny them coat also. 30 Give to everyone who asks you, and to take what is yours, not advertisements him. 31 And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them. 32 If you love those who love you what credit is that? For even sinners do the same. 33 And if ye do good to them that you do well, what credit is that? Also the sins pains do the same. 34 And if you lend to those from whom you hope to receive, what credit is that? Even sinners lend to sinners, to receive as much again. 35 But love, your enemies, do good, and lend never discouraged, and your reward will be great, and ye, sons of the Most High, for he is kind unto the unthankful and evil. 36 Headquarters, merciful, even as your Father is merciful. 37 Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven. 38 Then and servants shall be given: good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over will be poured into the lap, because with the same measure that medis, you will measure unto you. 39 And also offered him a parable: Can the blind lead the blind? Do not they both fall into the ditch? 40 The disciple is not more than his teacher, but everyone who is trained will be like his teacher. 41 Because thou the mote in thy brother’s eye and not the beam that is in thine own eye? 42 Or how canst thou say to thy brother, Brother let me pull out the mote that is in thine eye, when thou thyself beholdest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Hypocrite! Shoot first: the plank from your own eye, and then, shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote that is in thy brother’s eye. 43 For there is no good tree bad fruit, nor does a bad tree bear good fruit. 44 For every tree is known by its own fruit: for of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes. 45 The good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth good, and the evil man out of his evil treasure bringeth forth evil: for of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. 46 And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say? 47 Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will show you whom he is like: 48 He is like a man building a house, who dug, opened in-depth trench, and laid the foundation on the rock, and the flood came, the torrent broke against that house and could not shake it, because it had been well built. 49 But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man which built an house upon the earth without a foundation, against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell: and great was the ruin of that house.

7 When finished uttering those words in the ears of the people, came into K’farNchaum. 2 And a certain centurion’s servant, who was dear to him, was sick almost to death. 3 The centurion, therefore, hearing of Yehoshu ‘, sent them to the elders of the yehudin asking him to come and heal his servant. 4 And when they came to Yehoshu ‘, besought him with proceedings, saying: It is worthy to grant you this, 5 because he loves our nation and he hath built us a synagogue. 6 Ia therefore Yehoshu ‘with them, but when he was near the house, sent, the centurion, friends say unto him, Lord do not bother, because I am not worthy to have you come under my roof; 7 per I thought this is not even worthy to come to you; But say a word, and my servant shall be healed. 8 For I also am a man under authority, having soldiers under me: and I say to this, Go, and he goeth: and to another, Come, and he cometh: and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it. 9 Yehoshu ‘heard it marveled him, and turning to the crowd following him, he said: I tell you, not even in Israel have I found such faith. 10 And returning to the house that had been sent, they found the slave in good health. 11 Shortly after he went to a town called Nayn, and he went with his disciples and a large crowd. 12 When He came near the gate of the city, behold, a dead man carried out, only son of his mother, who was a widow, and she was a great crowd of the city. 13 And when the Lord saw her he was filled with compassion for her, and said unto her, Weep not. 14 And he came up and touched the bier, when they that bare him stood, said: Boy, I say unto thee, Arise. 15 The dead man sat up and began to speak. So Yehoshu ‘delivered him to his mother. 16 The fear came upon all, and they glorified the eternal God, saying, A great prophet has arisen among us: and, Y’HWH visited his people. 17 And the word went throughout this Yehudéia and throughout the surrounding region. 18 And the disciples of Y’ochanan shewed him of all these things. 19 And Y’ochanan, calling two of them, sent the Lord to ask him, Art thou he that should come, or look we for another? 20 When the men were come unto him, they said Y’ochanan, the Baptist has sent us unto thee, Art thou he that should come, or look we for another? 21 In that hour; cured many diseases, diseases and evil spirits, and gave sight to many who were blind. 22 And he said unto them, Go ye, and tell Y’ochanan what you have seen and heard: The blind receive sight, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the poor have announced good new. 23 And blessed is he who takes no offense at me. 24 And, having retired the messengers of Y’ochanan, Yehoshu ‘began saying to the crowds about Y’ochanan: What you came to do in the desert? A reed shaken with the wind? 25 But what went ye out to see? A man clothed in soft raiment? Behold, those who wear soft robes precious, and live in delights, are in kings’ courts. 26 But what went ye out to see? A prophet? Yes, I say, and more than a prophet. 27 This is he of whom it is written in the prophets: I will send my messenger, and he will clear the way for Me 28 For I say unto you, among those born of women, there is no greater than Y’ochanan, but he that is least in the kingdom of the eternal God is greater than he. 29 And all the people that heard him, and the publicans, recognized the justice of the eternal God, receiving the baptism of Y’ochanan. 30 But the Pharisees and the lawyers rejected the counsel of God eternal as himself, not having been baptized by him. 31 What, then, compare the men of this generation, and what are they like? 32 They are like children sitting in the square, shouting to each other: ‘We played the flute for you, and you did not dance; regrets sing-ing, and not wept. 33 Because Y’ochanan came, the baptizer, neither eating bread nor drinking wine, and you say, He hath a devil, 34 The Son of man came eating and drinking, and you say: Behold here a glutton and a wine drinker, a friend of publicans and sinners. 35 But wisdom is justified of all her children. 36 One of the Pharisees invited him to eat with him, and going into the Pharisee’s house, and sat down at the table. 37 And behold, a woman in the city who was a sinner, when she learned that he was at table in the Pharisee’s house, brought an alabaster box of ointment, 38 and standing behind him at his feet weeping, she began to wet his feet with her tears and wiped them with the hair of her head, and kissed them standing and anointed them with ointment. 39 But when he saw that the Pharisee who had invited you spoke saying, if this man were a prophet, would know who and what manner of woman this is who is touching him, for she is a sinner. 40 And answering Yehoshu ‘, he told them: Shimom, I have something to tell you. Replied he: Tell the Teacher. 41 certain creditor had two debtors: one owed five hundred denarii, and the other fifty. 42 And when they had to pay, he forgave them both. Which of them will love him more? 43 Shimom said: I suppose that he, to whom most perdoou.Replicou you Yehoshu ‘Thou hast rightly judged. 44 And turning to the woman, told Shimom Seest thou this woman? I entered your house, you gave me no water for my feet: but this, with their tears, showered and wiped them with her hair. 45 You gave me no kiss, but she, since I entered, has not stopped kissing my feet. 46 You did not anoint; head with oil, but with balsam; anointed my feet. 47 Therefore I say to you are forgiven your sins, which are many, for she loved much: but he who is forgiven little, loves little. 48 And said to her, ‘Your sins are forgiven. 49 But those who were at table with him began to say among themselves, Who is this who even forgives sins? 50 Yehoshu ‘, but said to the woman, Thy faith hath made thee whole: go in peace.

8 Shortly thereafter, walked Yehoshu ‘from town to town and from village to village, preaching and bringing the good news of the kingdom of God eternal, and went with him, the twelve, 2 and also some women who had been cured of sidas evil spirits and infirmities: Myriam called Magdalah, which had come out seven demons. 3 Y’ochanah, wife of Kuza, attorney for Herod, Shoshanh, and many others who served him with their goods. 4 And gathering up a large crowd, and people come to him from all the cities, said Yehoshu ‘by parable: 5 The sower went out to sow his seed. And as he sowed, some seeds fell along the path, and was trodden down, and the fowls of the air devoured it. 6 Some fell on rock, and, born, dried for lack of moisture. 7 And some fell among thorns, and the thorns grew with it, and choked it. 8 But other fell into good ground, and sprang up, and bare fruit, some a hundred. As he spake these things, he cried, He that hath ears to hear, let him hear. 9 asked him what his disciples this parable meant. 10 The Res-lation replied Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of the eternal God: but to others in parables: that seeing they may not see, and hearing they might not understand. 11 It is therefore this is the parable: The seed is the word of the eternal God. 12 Those by the wayside are the ones who hear, but then the devil comes and takes away the word from their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved. 13 Those on the rock are those who, hearing the word, receive it with joy, but these have no root, which for a while believe, and in time of temptation fall away. 14 And that which fell among thorns are those who have heard, and going their way they are choked with cares and riches and pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to perfection. 15 But that on the good ground are those who, having heard the word with honest and good heart, a, retain and bring forth fruit with patience. 16 Let no man therefore light a lamp and covers it with a vessel, or puts it under a bed, but puts it on a candlestick, that they which come in may see the light. 17 For there is nothing hidden that shall not manifest, nor anything secret that shall not be known and come to light. 18 Take heed therefore how ye hear: for anyone who has will be given, and whoever does not have, even what seems to have will be taken away. 19 Then came to him his mother his brethren, and could not approach him because of the crowd. 20 It was said unto her, Thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to see you. 21 But he said unto them, My mother and my brothers are those who hear the word of God and keep it forever. 22 Now it happened one day that got into a boat with his disciples, and said unto them, Let us go over to the other side of the lake. And departed. 23 While sailing, he adorme-sky, and came down a storm of wind on the lake, and the boat was filling with water, and were in jeopardy. 24 And they came to him, and awoke him, saying, Master, Mes-tre, we perish. And he arose, and rebuked the wind and the raging of the water: and they ceased, and made a calm. 25 Then they asked: Where is your faith? And they being afraid wondered, saying one to another, Who then is this, that even the winds and the water charge, and they obey him? 26 They arrived to the land of Gerasenes, which is before the Galil. 27 Once leaped ashore, came out to meet him a man of the city, devils, which had long ware no clothes, neither abode in any house, but in the tombs. 28 When he saw the Yehoshu ‘, screamed, fell down before him, and with a loud voice said, What have I to do with thee, Yehoshu’ Son of the Most High God? I beseech thee, torment me not. 29 For Yehoshu ‘commanded the unclean spirit to come out of the man. For it had been a long time that had seized him, and kept him, bound with fetters and chains, but he brake the bands, and was driven by the devil into the wilderness. 30 asked him Yehoshu ‘: What is your name? And he said, Legion: because many devils were entered into him. 31 And they begged him not to send him into the abyss. 32 Now there was there nigh unto the mountains a great herd of swine, besought him, therefore allowing them to enter into them, and gave them leave. 33 And having demons, left the man and entered into the swine: and the herd rushed down the steep place into the lake and drowned. 34 When the herdsmen saw what had happened, they fled, and was told it in the city and in the country. 35 Then they went out to see what had happened, and came to Yehoshu ‘, at whose feet found sitting, clothed and in his right mind, the man from whom the demons had gone out, and they were afraid. 36 Those who had seen it told them how the demoniac was healed. 37 Then all the people of the region Gerasenes besought him to depart from them, for they were taken with great fear. At that he got into the boat and returned. 38 I asked him, but the man from whom the demons had gone out that he might be with him, but Yehoshu ‘sent him away, saying, 39 Return to thine house, and everything Y’HWH the eternal God made you. And he withdrew, publishing throughout the city all that Yehoshu ‘had done. 40 When Yehoshu ‘returned to mul-racy received, they were all waiting. 41 And behold, there came a man named yairo, who was head of the synagogue, and fell down at the feet of Yehoshu ‘, begged him to go to his house, 42 because he had an only daughter, about twelve years old, who was death. While therefore he went, the crowds pressed him. 43 And a woman who had a hemorrhage for twelve years {and spent with doctors;} all their possessions and neither could be healed, 44 coming up behind him, and touched the hem of his garment, and immediately ceased your bleeding. Asked Yehoshu 45 ‘: Who touched me? When all denied, Kefah told him: Master, the crowds will tighten and oppress you. 46 But he said Yehoshu ‘: Someone touched me, for I noticed that power has gone out from me. 47 Then, seeing that the woman had not gone unnoticed, ap-ximou up trembling, and fell down before him, she declared unto him before all the people the reason why they had touched him, and how she was healed immediately. 48 He said to her: Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole: go in peace. 49 While he was still speaking, someone came from the house of the synagogue official, saying, Thy daughter is dead, trouble not the Master. 50 Yehoshu ‘, but listening to him, replied: No, themes, only believe and be saved. 51 Having come to the house to let anyone go in with him, but the Kefah, Y’ochanan, Ya’acov, and the girl’s father. 52 And all wept, and bewailed her: but he said, Weep not: she is not dead but asleep. 53 And they laughed at him, knowing that she was dead. 54. So he, taking her hand, exclaimed: Girl arise. 55 And the spirit returned, and she got up immediately, and Yehoshu ‘had to give him to eat. 56 And her parents were amazed: and he commanded them to tell no one what had happened.

9th. Bringing together the twelve, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases, 2 and sent to preach the kingdom of God eternal, and to heal, 3 telling them: Take nothing for your journey, neither staff, nor scrip, neither bread, neither money, neither have two coats apiece. 4 Whatever house you enter, it tarry, and thence depart. 5 But wherever ye receive not, leaving that city, shake off the dust from your feet for a testimony against them. 6 Leaving therefore the disciples come a long curred the villages, preaching the good news and healing everywhere. 7 Now Herod the tetrarch heard of all that was happening, and was greatly perplexed because some said: Y’ochanan rose from the dead, 8 others: Eliahu appeared, and others, one of the old prophets is risen again. 9 Herod, however, said: The Y’ochanan I beheaded, but who is this, about whom I hear such things? And he sought to see him. 10 When the apostles returned, told him all they had done. And he, taking them with him, withdrew apart to a city called Beth-Saida. 11 But the multitudes, perceiving it, followed him: and he received them, and spake unto them of the kingdom of the eternal God, and healed those who needed healing. 12 Now when the day began to decline, approaching the Twelve, said to him, Send the multitude away, that they may go into the villages and sites around, if hosts, and find nothing to eat, we are here in desert place. 13 But he said unto them, Thus ye them to eat. And they said, We have no more but five loaves and two fishes; saved if we go and buy food for all these people. 14 For they were about five thousand men. Then he said to her, Make them sit down in groups of about fifty each. 15 So they did, sending them all sit down. 16 And taking Yehoshu ‘the five loaves and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, blessed and broke them, and gave to his disciples to set before the crowd. 17 All therefore ate and were filled: and they were raised, what will remain, twelve baskets with the pieces. 18 While he was praying apart were with him only his disciples, and saith unto them, Who say to the multitudes who I am? 19 They replied, Some say Y’ochanan, the Baptist, others that one of the old prophets is risen again. 20 He asked them, But whom say ye that I am? Responding Kefah said: The Messiah Y’HWH. Yehoshu 21 ‘, however, warned them, told them not to tell this to anyone, 22 and said to them: It is necessary, that the Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected by the elders and chief priests and scribes, that is dead, and the third day rise again. 23 Then he said to all: If someone come after me, let him deny himself and take up his load, and follow me. 24 For whosoever will save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it. 25 For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world, and lose himself, or harm to yourself? 26 For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him is the Son of man be ashamed, when he comes in his glory, of the Father and of the holy angels. 27 But I say to you: There are some who are standing here who shall not taste of death, till they see the kingdom of God eternal. 28 About eight days after these sayings, he took Yehoshu ‘with the Shimom Kefah the Y’ochanan and Ya’acov, and went up the mountain to pray. 29 While he prayed moved the appearance of his face, and his clothes became white and gleaming. 30 Behold, there talked with him two men, who were Sheh-Mo and Eliahu, 31 who appeared in glory and spoke of his departure, which he was to accomplish at Yehoshaléym. 32 Now Kefah and those who were with him had left overcome by sleep, awakening, however, viewed, his glory and the two men who were with him. 33 And when they were parting from him, said the Kefah Yehoshu ‘Rabbi, it is good for us to be here: let us therefore three tabernacles, one for thee, one for Mosheh, and one for Eliahuh, not knowing what he said. 34 While he was yet speaking, there came a cloud that overshadowed them: and they were afraid as they entered the cloud. 35 And the cloud came a voice that said: This is my Son, my chosen: hear him. 36 When this voice sound, Yehoshu ‘was found alone and they held their peace, and in those days told no one what they had seen nothing. 37 The next day, when they came down the hill, came to meet a large crowd. 38 And behold, a man from the crowd cried out, saying, Master, I beg you to look at my son, because it is only that I have; 39 for a spirit seizes him, making him scream suddenly convulses him to skim and even after he had broken, hardly wide. 40 And I besought thy disciples to cast out them, but could not. 41 Yehoshu said ‘O faithless and perverse generation! Even when I am with you, and suffer you? Bring me thy son. 42 Even when he was approaching the demon threw him down and convulsed him but Yehoshu ‘rebuked the spirit-of Immunology, healed the boy and gave him to his father. 43 And they were all astonished the majesty of the eternal God. And marveling at all of what Yehoshu ‘did, he said to his disciples, 44 Let these words sink into your ears: for the Son of man shall be betrayed into the hands of men. 45 But they understood not this word, whose meaning was concealed from them that did not understand, and they feared to ask him about it. 46 And has raised up among them a discussion about which of them was the greatest. 47 But Yehoshu ‘, perceiving the thought of their heart, took a child, and set him beside him, 48 and said unto them, Whosoever shall receive this child in my name, receiveth me: and whosoever receiveth me receiveth him that sent me: for he who among you all, is the lowest, that is great. 49 Y’ochanan told him: Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name, and we forbade him, because he followeth not us. 50 answered him Yehoshu ‘Forbid him not: for he that is not against us is for us. 51 When the day was completed to its assumption, expressed his firm resolve to go Yehoshaléym. 52 And he sent messengers before him. So they entered a village of the Samaritans to prepare her inn. 53 did not receive him, because they traveled toward Yehoshaléym. 54 Seeing this the disciples and Ya’acov Y’ochanan, said Lord want us to call down fire from heaven to consume them as Eliahu did? 55 But he turned, rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what spirit, you are. 56 For the Son of man came not to destroy the lives of men, but to save them. And they went to another village. 57 When they went on the road, a man said to him: Follow thee wherever you go. 58 Yehoshu answered him ‘: The foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head. 59 And another said, ‘Follow me. To which he replied: lets me go first and bury my father. 60 Yehoshu answered him ‘: Let the dead bury their own dead, but thou and preach the kingdom vai of Y’HWH. He added another 61: Lord, I will follow, but first let me say goodbye to those who are in my house. Yehoshu 62 ‘, however, replied: No one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back is fit for the kingdom of God eternal.

10 After this the Lord appointed seventy others, and sent them before him, two by two, into every city and place, whither he himself would come. 2 And he said to them: Actually the harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest. 3 Go: behold, I send you as lambs among wolves. 4 Carry neither purse, nor scrip, nor shoes: and salute no man by the way. 5 Whatever house you enter, first say: Peace be to this house. 6 And if there is a child there’s peace rest upon it your peace, and if not, return to you. 7 Stay in that house, eating and drinking such things as they give: for the laborer is worthy of his wages. Go not from house to house. 8 And into whatsoever city you enter, and they receive you eat that’s set before you. 9 And heal the sick that are therein, and say unto them, It is come unto the kingdom of God eternal. 10 But into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you not, leaving the streets, say, 11 Even the very dust of your city, which took us to the feet, wipe off against you. However, know this: That the Kingdom of God is eternal arrived. 12 I tell you, that day shall be more tolerable for Sidon, than for that city. 13 Woe to thee. Korazim! Woe to thee. Beit-Tsaidah! Because in Tzor and Tzidon if they had the miracles that have taken place in you, a lot, sitting in sackcloth and ashes, they would have repented. 14 However, for Tzor Tzidon and shall be more tolerable in the judgment than for you. 15 And thou, K’farNachum, shalt thou be exalted unto heaven? So come down to hades. 16 He that hears you, heareth me, and he who rejects you, rejects me, and he who rejects me, rejects him who sent me. 17 the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, in thy name, even the demons are subject to us. 18 He answered them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. 19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. 20 Nevertheless do not rejoice because the spirits are subject to you, but rather rejoice because your names are written in heaven. 21 In that same hour he rejoiced Ye-Hoshu ‘in the Spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and understanding and revealed them to babes: yea, Father, for such was your gracious will. 22 All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son except the Father, and no one knows who the Father is except the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him. 23 And turning to the disciples and said to them in particular: Blessed are they who see what you see. 24 For I tell you that many prophets and kings have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them, and hear what you hear, and have not heard. 25 And behold, there arose certain lawyer, and to experience, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life? 26 asked him Yehoshu ‘: What is written in the Torah? How do you read? 27 And he answered him, Thou shalt love; Y’HWH to the Lord your God with all your heart, all your life, all your strength and with all your under-standing, and thy neighbor as thyself. It has 28 Yehoshu him ‘: answered right; make it, and you will live. 29 But he, desiring to justify himself, said to Yehoshu ‘: And who is my neighbor? 30 Yeshu ‘continuing, he said, A certain man went down from the Yehoshaléym Yerihó, and fell among thieves, which stripped them and Spanish Street-ing him, and departed, leaving half dead. 31-Casual mind, down by certain priest that way: and seeing him, went wide. 32 And likewise a Levite came to the place and saw him, and went wide. 33 But one of the Shomrom, as he journeyed, came to him and seeing him was filled with compassion; approximately 34 and send-up, tied them to the wound, pouring on oil and wine, and set him him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn and took care dele.35 The next day he took out two denarii, gave them to the innkeeper and said unto him, Take care of him, and whatever more you spend, when I return I will repay . 36 Which now of these three do you think was neighbor unto him that fell among the thieves? Respon-37 gave the lawyer: He that shewed mercy on him. I told him, because Yehoshu ‘Go, and do thou likewise. 38 Now when they went on their way, came Yehoshu ‘a village: and a certain woman named Martha received him into her house. 39 And she had a sister named Myriam, who was sitting at the Lord’s feet, heard his word. 40 But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came and said, Lord, do not you care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Bid her therefore that she help me. 41 The Lord answered her, Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things, 42 although few are needed, or even one, and Myriam chosen that good part, which shall not be taken from her.

11. Yehoshu was’ praying in a certain place, and when it was over, I told him one of his disciples, Lord, teach us to pray, as Y’ochanan also taught his disciples. 2 When they said: When you pray, say: Father, hallowed be thy name; Thy kingdom come; 3 gives us each day our daily bread, 4 and forgive us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who owes us, and let us not enter into temptation, but deliver us from evil. 5 I also told him: If one of you has a friend, and shall go unto him at midnight and say to him: Friend lend me three loaves, 6 for a friend of mine, being on a journey, came to my house, and have nothing to offer; 7 and he from within shall answer: Do not bother me, the door is now shut, and my children with me in bed, I can not get up to meet you, tell you that 8 though not lift and give him because he is his friend, yet because of his importunity he will rise and give him as many loaves precisar.9 so I say: Ask and it is unto you, seek and find, knock and opens up unto you; 10 For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and he who knocks, the door to him-A.11 What father among you, if his son ask bread, will give him a stone? Or if he ask a fish will give him a snake instead of a fish? 12 Or if he shall ask an egg, will give you a Slippery-pawn? 13 If ye being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more will the heavenly Father goods to them that ask him? He was 14 Yehoshu ‘casting out a demon that was mute, and that happened, leaving the de-tage, the dumb spake: and the multitudes marveled. 15 But some of them said Ba’alzebub by the prince of demons. 16 And others, trying him, asked him for a sign from heaven. 17 But he, knowing their thoughts, said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and house upon house shall fall. 18 And if Satan is divided against himself, how will his kingdom stand? Because ye say that I cast out by demo-nios Ba’alzebub. 19 And if I cast out demons by Ba’alzebub, by whom do your sons cast them out? Therefore they shall be your judges. 20 But if it is by the finger of the eternal God that I cast out demons, then is come unto the kingdom of Y’HWH the eternal God. Quan of the 21-valent armed guard; your home; safe are your assets; 22 but, coming a stronger than him, and overcome him, he taketh from him all his armor wherein he trusted, and divideth his spoils. 23 He that is not with me is against me, and whoever does not gather with me scatters. 24 Now when the unclean spirit out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and finding none, he says, I will return to my house whence I came out. 25 And coming up, think it swept and garnished. 26 Then it goes and takes with him seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter and dwell there: and the last state of that man becomes worse than the first. 27 Now as he spake these things, a certain woman from the crowd raised her voice and said: Blessed is the womb that bore you and the breasts that you amamentaste. 28 But he said, Yea rather, blessed are those who hear the word of the eternal God and obey it. 29 As the crowds flowed, he began to say: this is an evil generation: they seek a sign, and no sign be given to it, except to Y’onah, 30 because, as Y’onah was a sign to the Ninevites, also the Son of man be to this generation. 31 The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and condemn them: for she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Sh’lomom, and behold one greater than Sh’lomom. 32 The men of Nive rise in judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: because they repented at the preaching-ram of Jonah, and behold one greater than Jonah. 33 No one after lighting a lamp puts it in a secret place, neither under a bushel, but on a lampstand so that those who enter may see the light. 34 The lamp of the body is the eye. When therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body will be bright, but when they are bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. 35 See, then, that the light which is in thee be not darkness. 36 If therefore thy whole body has illuminated, having no part dark, it will be wholly bright, as when a lamp shines with its bright. 37 Ending Yehoshu ‘speaking, a Pharisee invited him to dine with him: and he Yehoshu’ in, and sat down at the table. 38 The Pharisee was amazed seeing that he had not first washed before dinner. 39 And the Lord said to him: Now ye the Pharisees cleanse the outside of the cup and dish, but inside you are full of greed and wickedness. 40 Crazy! Who made the outside, also did the interior? 41 But give as alms what is inside of the cup and dish, and behold, all things shall be clean. 42 But woe to you Pharisees! For ye tithe mint and rue and every herb, and neglect justice and the love of the eternal God. But these things do not leave those imported. 43 Woe to you Pharisees! Because like the pri-nurses seats seats in the synagogues, and greetings in the marketplaces. 44 Woe unto you! For ye are as graves which appear not, over which men walk without knowing it. 45 He said to him, then one of the doctors of law: Teacher, when you say that, we also affront to us. 46 But he said: Woe unto you also, lawyers! Because load men with burdens hard to bear-su, and you yourselves do not with your fingers tocais these burdens. 47 Woe unto you! Because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and your fathers killed. 48 Thus are witnesses and approve of the deeds of your fathers: for they killed them, and ye build their Tumu them. 49 Therefore also said the wisdom of the eternal God: Prophets and apostles, send them, and they will kill some and persecute, 50 so that this generation ask if accounts of the blood of all the prophets since the world began was poured, 51 from the blood of Hevel to the blood of Zekharyah, who was killed between the altar and the sanctuary: yea, I say unto you, this generation will ask if accounts. 52 Woe unto you, lawyers! Because you took the key of knowledge: ye entered not in themselves, and impe-distes those who entered. 53 Leaving him there, the scribes and the Pharisees to squeeze it tightly, and interrogate him about many things, 54 armando wait for him, to get him into something that dis-sesse.

12 Raking up, however many thousands of people, insomuch that they trode one upon another, he began Yehoshu ‘first to say to his disciples: Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy. 2 But there is nothing covered that shall not be revealed, nor hidden that shall not be known. 3 For everything spoken in darkness shall be heard in the light, and what you have spoken in the ear in office, shall be preached upon the housetops. 4 I tell you, my friends: Do not fear those who kill the body and after that can do nothing. 5 But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell: yea, I say unto you, this temei.6 not two sparrows sold for two pennies? And none of them is forgotten before Y’HWH. 7 But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are worth more than many sparrows. 8 And I tell you, whoever acknowledges me before men, the Son of man also confess before the angels of Y’HWH. 9 But everyone who denies me before men, I also will deny before the angels of Y’HWH 10 And whosoever shall speak a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit, not you will perdoado.11 When therefore ye take to the synagogues, the rulers and authorities, no thought how or what ye shall answer, or what ye shall dizer.12 Because the Spirit will teach you in the same hour that ye ought to say. 13 told him someone from the crowd, Teacher, tell my brother to divide the inheritance with me. 14 But he answered: Man who made me a judge or divider over you? 15 And said to them: Take heed and beware of all kinds of greed: for a man’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions. 16 He told them a parable, saying, The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully: 17 and he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do? Because I have no room where to bestow my fruits. 18 He said: I will do this: pull down my barns and buildings-Carei larger ones, and there I will store all my grain and my goods; 19 and say to myself: I’m in the composite-many goods for many years, rest, eat, drink, treat me. 20 But the eternal God told him Insensa-to, tonight will ask you your life, and you have prepared-rado, who will? 21 Thus, it is he who joins treasure for himself and is not rich toward God eternal. 22 And he said unto his disciples, Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, nor about your body, what you will wear. 23 For life is more than food and the body more than clothing. 24 Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap, no expenses nor barn, yet Y’HWH feeds. How Are ye not more than many birds! 25 And which of you by being anxious can add one cubit to his stature? 26 Wherefore, if ye can not do the things minimal, because ye thought for the rest? 27 Consider the lilies, how they grow: they do not work, nor do they spin, yet I tell you that not even Sh’lomom in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 28 If therefore the eternal God so clothe the grass, which today is in the field and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, how much more will you men of little faith? 29 Do not seek, for what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, and walk not worried. 30 For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knows that you need them. 31 But seek his kingdom, and these things will be added. 32 Fear not, little flock; Because by your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom. 33 Sell what you have, and give alms. Make purses for yourselves that do not enve-lheçam, a treasure in heaven that faileth where no

thief and not a moth gnaws. 34 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. 35 Be girded your loins and burning your lamps burning, 36 and seats like men who wait for their lord, when he will return from the wedding, that when he cometh and knocketh, they may open to him. 37 Blessed heating-les servants whom the master, when he cometh shall find watching: Verily I say unto you that he shall gird himself, and make them recline at table, and came up and serve them. Whether you are in the 38-second watch, or in the third, blessed are they, if they find them. 39 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief was coming, and would not have undercut his house. 40 Be ye also ready; why, at an hour when ye think not the Son of man will come. 41 Then Shimom said, Lord, speakest thou this parable unto us, or even to all? 42 Res-lation replied the Lord: What then is the faithful and wise steward, whom the Lord shall make ruler over his household, to give them ration their time there? 43 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. 44 Verily I say unto you will put on all their goods. 45 But if that servant say in his heart, My lord delays his coming, and begin to beat the menservants and the maidservants, and to eat and drink and get drunk, 46 the master of that servant will come on a day when not expected, and at an hour he does not know, and will cut him in two, and give them their portion with the unbelievers. 47 The servant, which knew his lord’s will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes, 48 ​​but that knew not, and did commit things worthy of punishment, shall be beaten with few stripes. That there whom much is given much will be required; ago and whom much is entrusted, even more will be asked. 49 I came to cast fire upon the earth, and would that it were already kindled? 50 There is a baptism in which I will be baptized, and how am I straitened till it be accomplished! 51 Suppose ye that I am come to bring peace on earth? No, I tell you, but rather division: 52 For henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three

                                      BY LUCAS

 

against two and two against three, and 53 will be divided, father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother against daughter and daughter against mother. 54 He also said to the people, When ye see a cloud rise out of the west, straightway ye say, There cometh a shower, and so su-cedes, 55 And when ye see the south wind blow, ye say, There will be heat, and so it is. Hypocrite 56; know how to discern the face of the earth and the sky, as that ye do not discern this time? 57 And why not also judge for yourselves what is right? 58 When therefore going with your adversary to the magistrate, make peace with him on the way, lest he drag you to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the bailiff, and the bailiff throw you in prison. 59 I tell you that there will not leave until you have paid the ultimate Lepto.

13 Now at that time were present some that told him of the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices. 2 Yehoshu answered him ‘: Do you think that they were worse sinners than all the Galileans, because they suffered such things? 3 No, I tell you, but unless you repent you will all likewise perish. 4 Or do you think that those eighteen on whom the tower fell and killed them shiloé were more guilty than all the others living in Yehoshaléym? 5 No, I tell you; ante, unless you repent you will all likewise perish. 6 And it came to telling this parable: A man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; going to look for fruit on it and not achou.7 then the grower said, Behold, these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none; cuts it, so that it still occupies the ground? 8 And he answered him: Lord, let it be this year also, until I dig around, and you throw manure; 9 and if it bear fruit in the future as well, but if not, thou shalt cut it. 10 Yehoshu ‘was teaching in one of the synagogues on the Sabbath. 11 And there was a woman which had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bent over and could in no wise lift up. 12 Sell-a-Yeho

                                     BY LUCAS

 

shu ‘, called her, and said unto her, Woman, you are free from your infirmity; 13 and placed his hands and immediately she was made straight, and glorified the eternal God. 14 And the ruler of the synagogue, indignant because Yehoshu ‘healed on the Sabbath, taking the word told the crowd: six days ago in which they must work, come because, in them, and be healed, and not on the shabate. 15 He said to him, but the Lord: Hypocrites in shabate not detach each of you the manger his ox or his ass to get you to drink? 16 And should not be released from this prison, on the Sabbath day this daughter of Abhamom which eighteen years Satan hath bound? 17 And when he had said these things, all his adversaries were envergo-nied, and all the people rejoiced for all the glorious things that were done by him. 18 He therefore said: What is the kingdom of God eternal, and that compares king? 19 It is like a mustard seed which a man took and cast into his garden; grew, and waxed a great tree, and in its branches the birds nested. 20 And he said again? Shall I liken the kingdom of God eternal? 21 It is like yeast that a woman took and mixed with three measures of flour until all leavened. 22 So went Yehoshu ‘cities and villages, teaching, and journeying toward Yehoshaláym. 23 And someone; asked him: Lord, are there few that be saved? To which he replied: 24 Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for I say unto you that many will seek to enter and will not. 25 When the owner of the house has risen and shut the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, open to us, and he will res-ponder: I know not whence ye are; 26 then you will begin saying: We ate and drank in your presence, and you taught in our streets-Naste; 27 and he; respond to you: I do not know where you come from, depart from me, all ye that work iniquity. 28 There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth when you see Abhamom, Yts’aac, Ya’acob and all the prophets in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out. 29 Many will come from east and west, north and south, and recline

will be at table in the kingdom of God eternal. 30 For some are last who will be first, and first who will be last. 31 At that very hour some Pharisees came to them they said, Go out, and depart hence, for Herod wants to kill you. 32 He answered them Yehoshu ‘: Go and tell that fox, Behold, I cast out demons and healing people today and tomorrow, and the third day will be consummated. 33 It should, however, keep going today and tomorrow and the next day, for which they ought not, that a prophet perish outside Yehosha-léym. 34 Yehoshalémym, Yehoshaléym, who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent! How many times, I wanted to gather your children together as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, and ye would not! 35 Behold, alas, is left unto your house. And I say unto you that ye see me no more until the time come when ye shall say, Blessed is he who comes in the name of Y’HWH.

14 Having Yehoshu ‘entered, a Saturday, at the home of one of the chief Pharisees to eat bread, that they watched him. 2 He stood there before him a man with dropsy. 3 And Yehoshu ‘, taking the word, spoke to the lawyers and Pharisees, and asked, Is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath or not? 4 But they were silent. And Yehoshu ‘, catching the man, healed him, and sent him away. 5 Then he asked them: Which of you, if you fall into a pit a son or an ox, not just draw, even on the Sabbath? 6 A this nothing could respond. 7 When you notice how the guests picked the first place, proposed to them this parable: 8 When you are invited by someone to a wedding, do not you reclines in the first place, lest be bidden worthier than thou; 9 and come what I invited you and him, you say, Give this man your seat, and then begin with shame to take the lowest place. 10 But when you are invited, go and recline yourself in last place, so that when that which you invited, you say, ‘Friend, go up; higher. Then you will be honored for all that you have at the table. 11 For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted. 12 He said to

                                      BY LUCAS

 

who had invited him: When you give a dinner or a banquet, do not invite your friends or your brothers or your relatives or rich neighbors, lest they also soceda that you make the invite, and you repay it is do.13 But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, 14 and you will have good adven-tured, because they have nothing to repay you, for you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous. 15 On hearing this one of those who were at table with him, said to him: Blessed is he that shall eat bread in the kingdom of God eternal. Yehoshu 16 ‘, however, said, A certain man made a great supper, and invited many. 17 And at supper time sent his servant to tell the guests, ‘Come, for all things are now ready. 18 But all started a excuses. I told him the first: I bought a field and need to go and see it: I pray thee have me excused. 19 And another said, I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I experi-mint them: I pray thee have me excused. 20 And another said, I married and therefore can not go. 21 The servant returned and told unto their lord all that: Then the master of the house being angry said to his servant, Go out quickly into the streets and alleys of the town and bring in hither the poor, the cripples, the blind and the lame . 22 Then the servant said, Lord, it is done as commanded, and yet there is room. 23 Res-lation replied Mr. unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled. 24 For I tell you that none of those men which were bidden shall taste of my supper. 25 And there went great multitudes with him: and he turned, told him: 26 If anyone comes to Me and does not hate his father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters, and even his own life also , can not be my disciple. 27 Whoever does not bear his load and come after me can not be my disciple. 28 For which of you, intending to build a tower, does not first sit down and estimate the cost to see if he has to end? 29 For not happen that, after he hath laid the foundation, and is not able to finish it, all that behold it begin to mock him, 30 Saying, This man eats

                                      BY LUCAS

 

COU to build and was not able to finish. 31 Or what king, going to make war against another king, sitteth not down first to see whether with ten thousand to meet the coming against him with twenty thousand? In the case against 32-river, while the other is still far away, he sends ambassadors-res, and asks conditions of peace. 33 So then, whoever of you who does not renounce all that he has can not be my disciple. 34 Salt is good: but if the salt has become tasteless, how can it be to restore the flavor? 35 It is neither fit for the land nor for the dunghill; cast it out. Who hath ears to hear let him hear.

15 Now, came up to him all the publicans and pe-tors to hear it. 2 And the Pharisees and scribes-ravam Murmu, saying, This man receiveth sinners, and eateth with them. 3 Then spake this parable unto: 4 Which of you is the man has a hundred sheep and loses one of them, doth not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness, and go after the per-measure until he finds? 5 And having found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing; 6 and getting the house together his friends and neighbors and says to them, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep which was lost. 7 I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance. 8 Or what woman, having ten silver coins and loses one coin, does not light a lamp and sweep the house, searching carefully until she finds it? 9 And having found it, she calls together her friends and neighbors, saying, Rejoice with me, for I have found the piece which I had lost. 10 Therefore I tell you, there is joy before the angels of God over one sinner everlasting who repents. 11 And God said, A certain man had two sons. 12 The younger of them said to his father: Father, give me the portion of goods that touches me. Divided them, because their assets. 13 A few days later, the younger son, ajun-ing everything went into a far country, and there cou-desperdi his substance with riotous living. 14 And when he had spent all, there arose a mighty famine in that land, and began spending needs. 15 So it was touch-

himself to a citizen of that country, who sent them into his fields to feed swine. 16 And longed to fill his stomach with the pods that the swine ate, and no one gave him anything. 17 Falling, however, in itself, said: How many hired servants of my father have abun-dance of bread, and I perish here with hunger! 18 Lift-I shall go to my father and say to him, ‘Father; I have sinned against heaven and before thee. 19 And am no more worthy to be called thy son. 20 He got up then and went to his father. While he was still far off, his father saw him, he was filled with compassion, and ran, threw himself upon his neck and kissed him. 21 He said to his son: Father, I have sinned against heaven and before thee I am no longer worthy to be called thy son. 22 But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him, and put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet; 23 bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it; eat and let us rejoice, 24 For this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found. And they began to be merry. 25 Now his elder son was in the field, and when he returned he approached the house, he heard music and dances; 26 and called one of the servants and asked what these things meant. 27 He answered you this: Your brother has come, and your father has killed the fattened calf because he has him safe and sound. 28 But he was angry and refused to go. Then the father came out and entreated him. 29 But he answered his father, Lo, these many years do I serve thee, and never transgressed thy commandment, and yet you never gave me a young goat so I might make merry with my friends; 30 coming, but this son of yours who des perdiçou-thy living with harlots, you kill him the fatted calf. 31 the father answered him: Son, thou art ever with me, and all that is mine is yours; 32 was fair though, rejoice and to rejoice, because this brother of yours was dead and is alive again; went missing, and is found.

16 said Yehoshu ‘also unto his disciples, There was a certain rich man who had a steward, and this was ac-sado before him is wasted his goods. 2 Cha-

                                      BY LUCAS

 

mou him then and said, What is this that I hear this of thee? Give an account of thy stewardship: for now thou canst not longer be my steward. 3 Then said the butler; himself, What shall I do, since my master takes my stewardship? To dig, do not have the strength; to beg I am Vergo-nha. 4 Now I know what I will do, so that when the stewardship, they may receive me into their houses. 5 And calling to him each one of his lord’s debtors, he asked the first, How much do you owe my master? 6 And he said, An hundred measures of oil. Then said to him: Take thy bill, and sit down quickly and write fifty. 7 Per-guntou then another, And how much owest thou? Replied he: hundred measures of wheat, And said unto him, Take thy bill, and write eighty. 8 And the lord commended the unjust steward for had done wisely: for the children of this world are wiser in their genera-tion than the children of light. 9 And I say unto you Granjeai friends of the mammon of unrighteousness, that when ye fail, they may receive you in the eternal tavern-cles. 10 He who is faithful in a very little is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in little is also dishonest in much. 11 If therefore ye have not been unfair in riches faithful, who will trust you with true riches? 12 And if ye have not been faithful in the alien, who shall give you that which is your own? 13 No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one and love the other, or be devoted to one and despise the other. You can not serve Y’HWH the eternal God and mammon. 14 The Pharisees, who were covetous, heard all these things: and they derided him. 15 And he said unto them, Ye are they who justify yourselves before men, but God knows your hearts forever, because what is high among men, before the eternal God is an abomination. 16 The ceremonial law and the prophets were until Y’ochanan; since it announced the good news of the Kingdom of Y’HWH the eternal God, and every man presseth into it. 17 It is, however, easier to move heaven and earth than dropping a yod law. 18 Whoever divorces his wife and marries another commits adul-

                                      BY LUCAS

 

istry, and whoever marries a divorced woman who has been by her husband committeth adultery. 19 Now there was a rich man who was clothed in purple and fine linen, and all day feasted splendidly. 20 At his gate was laid a beggar named El’azar, full of sores, 21 who desired to be fed with the crumbs that fall from the table of the rich, and the dogs came and licked his sores. 22 came to the beggar died, and was carried by angels to the bosom of Abhamom, the rich man also died, and was buried. 23 In sh’ol; raised his eyes, being in torments, and seeth far Abhamom, and Elazar in his bosom. 24 And he cried and said, Father Abhamom has mi-sericórdia me and send me El’azar, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue, for I am tormented in this flame. 25 He said, however, Abhamom: Son, remember that in your lifetime you received your good things, and likewise El’azar evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented. 26 And furthermore, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you can not, neither can they pass to us. 27 Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that you would send him to my father’s house, 28 for I have five brothers, so that they give testimony, lest they also come into this place of torment. 29 Abhamom told him: They Mosheh and the Prophets; hear us. 30 And he said, No! Father Abhamom, but if someone from the dead goes to them, they will repent. 31 Abhamom, however, told him: If they hear not Mosheh and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the mor-tos.

17 Said Yehoshu ‘to his disciples: It is impossible not to come stumbling, more woe to those by whom they come! 2 Top it off that hung around his neck a millstone, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. 3 Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother trespass, scolded him, and if he repents, forgive him. 4 Even if he trespass against thee seven

                                      BY LUCAS

 

times a day, and seven times turn again to thee, saying, Arre-droop down to me, you forgive them. 5 Then said the Lord to the apostles: Increase our faith. 6 And the Lord said, If ye had faith as a grain of mustard seed, you could say to this mulberry tree, uprooted thee, and be thou planted in the sea, ‘and it would obey you. 7 Which of you, having a servant plowing or feeding cattle, will tell you, it’s back to the field: Enough you already, and you recline the table? 8 Do not tell him before: Prepare me supper, and gird thyself, and serve me, till I have eaten and drunk, and then thou shalt eat and drink? 9 Doth thank the servant because he did what he was man-given? 10 So you also, when you make all that are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants; did only what we should do. 11 And it came to pass that he went to Yehoshaléym, passed the border between Samaria and Galil. 12 Upon entering certain village, there met him ten lepers, which stood afar off, 13 and lifted up their voices, saying Yehoshu ‘, Master, have mercy on us! 14 He soon saw them and said to them: Go, show yourselves to the priests. And it came to pass, as they went, were lim-pos. 15 One of them, seeing that he was healed, returned, glorifying God in a loud voice eternal; 16 and he bowed himself with his face to the ground at the feet of Yehoshu ‘, giving him thanks: and he was asked samaritano.17 therefore Yeho -shu ‘: Were not ten cleansed? And nine, where are they? 18 There are not found that returned to give glory to the eternal God, save this stranger 19 And said unto him, Arise, and go thy way: thy faith hath made thee whole. 20 Since Yehoshu ‘asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come eternal repondeu them: The kingdom of Y’HWH not come with exterior appear-ence, 21 neither shall they say, Lo here! Or, Lo here! For the kingdom of Y’HWH is within you. 22 Then he said to his disciples: The days will come in which to see one of the days of the Son of man, and you will not see. 23 Dir you will, Lo here! Or, Lo here! Do not go, nor follow Him; 24 For as the lightning, shooting at one end of the sky, lighting up the other end, so also will the Son of Man in his Day 25 But first it is necessary

he must suffer many things and be rejected by this generation. 26 As happened in the days of Noahc, so shall it be in the days of the Son of man. 27 People were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noahc entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all. 28 As also happened the same way in the days of Lot: They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, plan-tavam, they builded; 29 but on the day that Lot went out of Tsidom rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all; 30 So be on the day when the Son of man is revealed. 31 In that day who is on the housetop, with his goods in the house, not come down to take them out, and, likewise, what is in the field not turn back. 32 Remember Lot’s wife. 33 Whatever pro-cure to save his life; losing her will, and whoever loses, it will save. 34 I tell you, in that night there shall be two men in one bed; one will be taken and one will be deixado.35 Two women shall be grinding together: one will be taken and the other will deixada.36 Two men will be in the field: one will be taken and the other left. 37 They asked him, Where, Lord? And he said unto them, Wheresoever the color-po, there the vultures will gather.

18 He told her also a parable about the duty to pray always and never lose heart, 2 saying, There was in a city a judge who neither feared God nor regarded man. 3 There was also a widow in that city who came to him, saying, Avenge me against my adversary. 4 And for awhile would not answer it, but afterwards he said within himself: Though I do not fear God nor regard man, 5 yet because this widow bothers me, I will do it justice, so that she will not continue to come molest me. 6 And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge saith. 7 And will not the eternal God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night to Him, though He is longsuffering over them? 8 I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on earth? 9 proposed spake this parable unto certain which trusted in themselves

terms, that they were righteous, and despised others: 10 Two men went up into the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a publican. 11 The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican. 12 I fast twice a week and give a tenth of all I get. 13 And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying: O eternal God, be merciful to me a sinner! 14 I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted. 15 And they brought unto him also infants, that he would touch them: but when his disciples saw it, they rebuked them. Yehoshu 16 ‘, however, calling them to him, saying, Let the children come unto me, and forbid them not, for of such is the kingdom of Y’HWH the eternal God. 17 Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein. 18 And he asked him a leading, Good Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life? 19 And Yehoshu ‘: Why call me good? There is none good but one, that is God. 20 Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, do not tell false witness, Honour thy father and thy mother. 21 And he said, All these have I kept from my youth. 22 When Yehoshu ‘heard this, said to him, You still lack one thing: sell all that thou hast, and distribute unto the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, follow me. 23 But when he heard this, he was filled with sorrow, for he was very rich. 24 And Yehoshu ‘, seeing him thus, he said, How hardly enter into the kingdom of the eternal God for the rich! 25 For it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God eternal. 26 And they that heard it said, Who then can be saved? 27 He answered them: The things which are impossible with ho-

mens are possible Y’HWH the eternal God. 28 Kefah told him: Behold, we have left everything and followed you. Res-29

lation replied them Yehoshu ‘, Verily I say to you who has left house or wife or brothers or parents or children for the sake of the kingdom of the everlasting God, 30 Who shall not receive much in the present, and hereafter life eterna.31 Taking Yehoshu ‘him the twelve, and said unto them, Behold, we go up to Yehoshaláym and will be fulfilled in the Son of man anything that was written by the prophets, 32 it will be delivered to the Gentiles, and shall be mocked, reviled and spat; 33 and after the scourge, the kill, and the third day rise again. 33 But they understood none of these words were face Dark-ras them, and did not realize what I was saying. 35 And when he was come near to Yerihó, a blind man was sitting by the wayside begging. 36 This, then, hearing the multitude pass by, he asked what was aquilo.37 said that Yeshu “the Nazarene was passing. 38 And he cried, saying, Yeshu ‘, son of David, have mercy on me! 39 And they that went before rebuked him, to be quiet, but he cried out all the more: Son of David have mercy on me! 40 Stopped therefore Yehoshu ‘, and that man-give him trouxessem.Tendo he arrived, he asked him: 41 What do you do that? Answered: Lord, I see. 42 Yehoshu told him ‘: Watch: thy faith hath made thee salvou.43 Immediately he received his sight, and followed, glo-rificando the eternal God. And all the people saw it, gave praise to God eternal.

19 Having Yehoshu ‘entered Yerihó; going through town. 2 There was a man called Zakai, which was the chief among the publicans, and he was rich. 3 sought to see who was Yehoshu ‘, and could not, because of the crowd, because he was short. 4 And he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore tree to see him, for he was to pass that way. 5 When Yehoshu ‘came to the place, he looked up and said to him: Zakai down quickly, for to day I must abide at thy house. 6 Down, therefore, in all haste, and received him joyfully. 7 When you see this, all

murmured, saying gone to be the guest of a sinner. 8 Zakai, however, got up and told the

Lord, give to the poor, half of my possessions, and if in anything I have defrauded anyone I will restore it fourfold. 9 Yehoshu told him ‘: Today salvation has come to this house, because this is also the son of Abha-mom.10 For the Son of Man came to seek and to save that which was lost. 11 When they heard this, went Yehoshu ‘, and spoke a parable, because he is near Yehoshaléym, and they thought that the kingdom of the eternal God had to manifest immediately. 12 He said therefore, A certain nobleman went into a far country, to take possession of a kingdom and then return. 13 And calling his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come. 14 But his concida-zens hated him, and sent an embassy after him, saying, We will not have this man to reign over us. 15 And it came to pass, when he was returned, having received the kingdom, he sent servants to those who had given the money, to know what they had negotiated. 16 introduced himself as the first, and said, Lord, thy pound hath gained ten pounds. 17 The Lord said to him: Well done, good servant! Because at least you were faithful over ten cities you will autoridade.18 the second came, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained five pounds. 19 It also said, Be thou also over five cities. 20 And another came, saying: Lord, behold your mina which I kept in a napkin: 21 For I feared thee, because he is a hard man; tomas what hast not, and reap what you did not sow. 22 The Lord said to him: You wicked servant! For thy mouth will I judge thee knew that I’m man-summer, I take what is not pus, and reaping what I sowed not, 23 because then it is not my money you put in the bank? So coming I would have withdrawn with interest. 24 And said unto them that stood by, Take from him the pound, and hence to what hath ten pounds. 25 They answered him, Lord, he hath ten pounds. 26 For I tell you that to everyone who has, give up you will: but he that hath not, even what he has be-

you will be taken away. 27 As But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before the mim.28 Yehoshu Having ‘thus spoken, he went before, going up to Yeho-

shaléym. 29 When approaching Beit-pagei and Beth-Ania, at the mount called Olivet, he sent two of his disciples, 30 telling them: Go ye into the village over against, and then, upon entering, you will find trapped a colt that no one has ever ridden: loose him, and bring him. 31 If anyone asks you, Why loose ye? Respon-dereis well: The Lord needs it. 32 They left, they that were sent, and found as he dis-sera. 33 as they were loosing the colt, its owners asked them: Why loose ye the colt? 34 And they said, The Lord hath need of him. 35 ram brought him therefore the Yehoshu ‘and they cast their garments upon the colt, and they Yehoshu’ mount. 36 And as he went, they spread cami-mance in their robes. 37 When they were coming to the descent of the Mount of Olives, the whole multitude of dis-cípulos, rejoicing, began to praise the eternal God in loud voices for all the miracles they had seen, 38 saying, Blessed be the King that cometh Name Y’HWH in the Lord: peace in heaven, and glory in the highest. 39 Herein, dis-seram some of the Pharisees from among the multitude: Master, rebuke thy disciples. 40 And he answered: I tell you, if these were silent, the stones will cry out. 41 And when he drew near and saw the city and wept over it, 42 saying, Ah! If you knew, at least on this day what would bring you peace! But now they are hid from thine eyes. 43 For the days shall come upon thee, that thine enemies shall have surrounded the trenches, and you sitiarão, and keep thee in on every side, 44 and you shall throw it to you and to your children that you are inside, and not leave in thee stone unturned, because ye know not the time of thy visitation. 45 Then when he was come into the temple, began to cast out them that they sold 46 saying to them: You are in the Torah, it is written, My house shall be a house of prayer: ye

But you did it a den of robbers. 47 And every day, teaching in the temple, but the chief priests and the es-Cribas, and the chief of the people sought to destroy him, 48

but found no way to do it because all the people were great to hear him.

20 In those days, when Yehoshu ‘teaching the people in the temple, and preached the good news (Heb. bessorah) sobrevie-ram the chief priests and the scribes with the elders-to, 2 and spoke to him this way: Say us, by what authority; doest thou these things? Or who it is that gave you this authority? 3 He answered them: I also will ask you a question, tell me, because: 4 The baptism of Y’ochanan was from heaven or from men? 5 And they reasoned among themselves, if we say, ‘From heaven, he will say: Why not believe him? 6 But if we say, Of men, all the people will stone us, because it is convinced that Y’ocha-nan was a prophet. 7 And they answered, that they knew not whence it was. 8 answered them Yehoshu ‘: Neither will I tell you by what authority, I do these things. 9 And he began to tell the people this parable: A man planted a vineyard and let it out to husbandmen, and went into the country for long. 10 At the time he sent a servant to the husbandmen, that gave them the fruit of the vineyard: but the husbandmen beat him, and sent him away vazias.11 hands again he sent another servant: and they beat him also, and treated him shamefully, and sent him away empty-handed. 12 And he sent also a third-ro and they wounded him also, and cast him out. 13 Then said the lord of the vineyard, What shall I do? I will send my beloved son: he might meet. 14 But when the tenants saw him, they reasoned among themselves, saying, This is the heir; kill him that the inheritance may be ours. 15 And they cast him out of the vineyard, and killed him. They therefore will the lord of the vineyard? 16 He shall come and destroy these husbandmen, and give the vineyard to others. When they heard this, they said: This does not happen! 17 But Yehoshu ‘beheld them, and said, Well, does that mean that the Torah is written,

stone which the builders rejected, this was made the cornerstone? 18 Whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be,

broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall to dust. 19 Yet at the same time the scribes and priests, realizing that spoken this parable against them, attempted to lay his hands on him, they feared the

people. 20 And, awaiting opportunity, they sent spies, who pretended to be righteous, to catch up on some word, and surrender to the jurisdiction and authority of the governor. 21 And they asked him, saying: Mes-tre, we know that thou sayest and teachest rightly, and do not you consider the appearance of the person, but of a truth teachest the way of God eternal; 22 is lawful for us to give tribute unto Caesar or not? 23 But Yehoshu ‘perceived their craftiness and said to them: 24 Shew me a penny. Whose image and inscription has it? Caesar responded. 25 He said to them: Thus therefore to Caesar what is Caesar’s, and to God what is eternal of the eternal God. 26 And could not catch him in his words before the people: and they marveled at his answer, and held their peace. 27 Then came to him certain of the Sadducees, who say there is no resurrec-reição, and said unto him, Master 28, Mosheh left us written that if a man die, having a wife, but having no children, his brother marry the widow and raise up seed to his brother. 29 There were therefore seven brethren. The first married and died childless; 30 then the sec-ond, and then the third married the widow, 31 and so all seven left no children and died. 32 After the woman died. 33 Therefore, in the resurrection, of which one will be her wife, for the seven had her to wife? 34 He answered them Yehoshu ‘: The children of this world marry, and give in marriage, 35 but those who are counted worthy to obtain that world, and the resurrection of the dead neither marry nor are given in marriage, 36 because they can no longer die, for they are equal to angels and are sons of the eternal God, being sons of the resurrection. 37 But that the dead are raised, even Mosheh showed, in the passage

about the bush, when he calls Y’HWH: God of Abha-mom, and It’saac God, and God of Ya’acov. 38 Now, He is not God of the dead but of the living, for to him all are alive. 39 They answered some of the scribes, Master, thou hast well said. 40 They dared not therefore ask you, but anything. Yehoshu 41 ‘, however, asked them, How say the Messiah is the son of David? 42 For David himself says in the book of Psalms: the Y’HWH said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, 43 until I make thine enemies thy footstool. 44 So David calls him Lord, how is your son? 45 While all the people listened, said Yehoshu ‘to his disciples, 46 Beware of the scribes, which desire to walk in long robes, and love greetings in the marketplaces, the first accents in the synagogues, and the chief rooms at feasts, 47 Which devour widows’ houses, making for a pretense make long prayers: these shall receive greater damnation.

21 Yehoshu ‘lifted up his eyes, saw the rich men lie their gifts into the treasury; 2 saw also a certain poor widow casting in thither two mites 3 And said, Verily I say unto you that this poor widow gave more than all, because all four those given what their abundance, but she out of her poverty put in all she had for sustenance. 5 And talking to him some about the temple, how it was adorned with goodly stones and gifts, he said, 6 As for that which ye behold, the days will come that not be left here one stone upon another that will not be thrown down. 7 They said to him then: Teacher, when therefore will these things be? And what sign will there be when these things come to pass? 8 And he said, Take heed that ye be not mistaken for: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am: and: The time has come, do not go after them. 9 When you hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified: for it must first come to these things, but the end will not come immediately. 10 Then he said to them: Rising Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be 11 in

several places great earthquakes, famines and pestilences, there will be terrors and great signs from heaven. 12 But before all these things shall they, and persecute, delivering you up to the synagogues and prisons, bringing you before kings and governments ordinators, for My Name’s sake. 13 This will be your opportunity to bear witness. 14 Settle it therefore in your

hearts, not to meditate before what ye do not your defense, 15 for I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall be able to resist or contradict. 16 And even by parents and brothers and relatives and friends shall ye be delivered, and kill some of you: 17 And ye shall be hated by all because of My name. 18 But there shall not an hair of your head. 19 By your patience possess your life. 20 But when ye shall see Yehoshaléym surrounded by armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh. 21 Then those who are in yehudeia flee to the mountains, and those who have in the city get out, and those who are in the countries enter thereinto. 22 For these are days of vengeance, that all things be fulfilled that is written in the Torah. 23 Woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! Because there will be great distress upon the land, and wrath upon this people. 24 And they shall fall by the sword, and all nations shall be led away captive, and Yehoshaléym will be trampled by Gentiles until the times of these is complete. 25 And there shall be signs in sun and moon and stars, and upon the earth distress of nations in perplexity at the roaring of the sea and the waves, 26 men fainting for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. 27 Then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. 28 Now when these things begin to happen, stand and lift-tai up your heads, because your redemption draws near. 29 He proposed to her a parable: Behold the fig tree and all the trees; 30 when they now shoot forth, ye know yourselves, to see them, which is already close

summer. 31 So likewise ye, when ye see these things happening, know that the kingdom of Y’HWH the eternal God is near. 32 Verily I say unto you not pass, this generation till all be fulfilled. 33 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words will never pass away. 34 Take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts-tions be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you impro-vision like a lasso. 35 For there shall come upon all who dwell on earth. 36 Watch therefore, at all times, praying that you may escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man. 37 Now he was teaching in the temple by day, and at night he went out, and abode in the mount called Olivet. 38 And all the people came to him in the temple early in the morning to hear him.

22 was approaching the Feast of Unleavened Bread, called the Passover. 2 And the chief priests and the scribes sought how to kill him, for they feared the people. 3 Then Satan entered into Judah, who was on Kiriot name, which was one of the twelve, 4 and he was dealing with the chief priests and captains how to deliver him. 5 They were glad, and covenanted to give him money. 6 And he promised, and sought opportunity to betray him unto them without fuss. 7 Then came the day of Unleavened Bread on which the Passover sacrifice was; 8 and Yeho-shu ‘sent Kefah and Y’ochanan, saying, Go and prepare us the passover, that we may eat. 9 They said to him, Where wilt thou that we prepare? 10 He said to them: When you enter the city, you will come out to meet a man carrying a pitcher of water, follow him into the house which he enters. 11 And you shall say to the master of the house, The Master saith unto thee, Where is the guest room, where I may eat the Passover with my disciples? 12 And he shall shew you a large upper room furnished, ai; make preparations. 13 And they went and found everything as he had told them and prepared the Passover. 14 And the hour, stood Yehoshu ‘the table, and he told the E-discípulos.15

them, I have earnestly desired to eat this Passover with you before my martyrdom; 16 For I tell you not to eat it until it is fulfilled in the kingdom of the Eternal God. 17 And he took a cup, gave thanks and said, Take this and divide it among yourselves: 18 For I tell you that from now on I shall not drink of the fruit of the vine, until the kingdom comes from the Eternal God. 19 And he took bread,

and gave thanks, broke it and gave it to them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me. 20 Likewise after supper, he took the cup, saying, This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is shed for you. 21 But behold, the hand of him who betrays me is with me at the table. 22 For indeed, the Son of man goeth as it was determined: but woe unto that man by whom he is betrayed! 23 Then they eat Caram to inquire among themselves which of them it was that should do it. 24 They also raised a strife among them, which of them should be the greatest. 25 At that Yehoshu ‘told them: The kings of the Gentiles lord it over them, and those who exercise authority over them are called benefactors. 26 But ye shall not be so: but the greatest among you become as the youngest, and the leader as one who serves. 27 For which is greater, he that sitteth at meat, or he that serveth? Is not he that sitteth at meat? But I am among you as one who serves. 28 But ye are they that have continued with me in my trials; 29 and as my Father has given me dominion, I tell you bestow unto you, 30 that you may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit on thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.31 Shimon, Shimon, behold, Satan has asked to sift you as wheat: 32 But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, fortaleces your brothers. 33 Kefah answered him: Lord, I am ready to go with thee, both into prison and to death. It has 34 Yehoshu you ‘, I tell thee, Shimon, that the rooster will not crow today before you have denied three times that conheces.35 And I asked them, When I sent you without purse, and scrip, and shoes, lacked ye porven –

ture something? They said, Nothing. 36 He said to them, because: But now, who hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he does not have a sword, sell your, cloak and buy one. 37 For I tell you that matter, let it be with me that it is written in the Torah: And with the wicked was contado.Pois what concerns me has its fulfillment. 38 And they said, Lord, behold

two swords. He said: Enough. 39 Then went out and, as his custom was, went to the Mount of Olives, and the disciples followed him. 40 When he was at the place, he said unto them, Pray that ye enter not into temptation. 41 And he was withdrawn from them about a stone’s cast, 42 and rising to his knees and prayed. 43 Then an angel from heaven strengthening him. 44 And being in an agony he prayed more intensely, and his sweat became like great drops of blood falling on the ground. 45 And they rose up from prayer and was come to his disciples, and findeth them sleeping for sorrow, 46 and said to them: Why are you pain-inating? Arise and pray, that ye enter not into temptation. 47 While he was still speaking, behold, behold a multitude, and he that was called Yehuda, one of the twelve, went before them, and came to Yehoshu ‘to kiss him. 48 Yehoshu ‘But you said Yehuda with a kiss betrays the Son of Man? 49 When they which were about him saw what would follow, they said, Lord, it’ll hurt the sword? 50 Then one of them struck the servant of the high sacertdote, and cut off his right ear. 51 But Yehoshu ‘said: Leave them, please. And he touched his ear and healed him. 52 Then said Yehoshu ‘the chief priests and captains of the temple elders, who had come to him, Be ye come out as against a robber, with sword and staves? 53 Every day, I was with you in the temple and I stretched forth no hands against me: but this is your hour, and no power of darkness. 54 Then, holding him, and took him into the house of the high priest, and Kefah followed him from afar. 55 And when they had kindled a fire in the middle of the courtyard and there sat the wheel, sat Kefah between them. 56 A maid saw him sitting by the fire, stared at him and said, This

also was with him. 57 But Kefah denied, saying, Woman, I know him not. 58 After a while, another saw him and said: You are one of them. But Kefah said: Man;

‘m not. 59 And, having spent nearly an hour, another confidently affirmed, saying, Certainly this man also was with him, because he is a Galilean. 60 But Kefah said: Man, I do not know what dizes.E immediately, while he yet spake,

the cock crowed. 61 Turning the Lord looked Kefah; Kefah and remembered the word of the Lord, as he had said: Today, before the rooster crows, you will deny me three times. 62 And when he had gone out, and wept bitterly. 63 The men who held Yehoshu ‘mocked him, and struck him on; 64 and sealing his eyes, asked saying: Prophesy who it was that hit you? 65 And, cursing, saying many other things against him. 66 Once dawned met the assembly of the elders of the people, both the chief priests and the scribes, and led them to their council, where they said: 67 If you are the Messiah, tell him. He said to them: If I tell you I will not believe, 68 and if I ask you, answer me in any way. 69 But from now will the Son of Man seated at the right hand of the power of Y’HWH. 70 When they asked everybody: So, you are the Son of the eternal God? He said: You say that I am. 71 Then they said: Why do we still need a witness? For months we we have heard from his own mouth.

23 And rising entire crowd of them, led Yehoshu ‘Pilate. 2 And they began to accuse him, saying, We found this fellow perverting the nation, and forbidding to give tribute to Caesar, saying that he himself Messiah king. 3 Then Pilate asked him, Is you the King of yehudin? Replied Yehoshu ‘: It’s as you say. 4 Then said Pilate to the chief priests and the multitudes, I find no fault in this man. 5 But they insisted further, saying stirreth up the people, teaching throughout all Yehudeia, starting from the Galil far. 6 When Pilate heard this, he asked whether the man was a Galilean; 7 and when he knew it was Herod’s jurisdiction, referred to

                                     BY LUCAS

 

Herod, who also was in those days Yehoshaléym. 8 Now when Herod saw Yehoshu ‘, rejoiced: for a long time wished to see him, having heard it,

their respect, and expect to see some sign done by him, 9 and made him many questions, but he answered them nothing. 10 They were there the chief priests and scribes, accusing him vehemently. 11 Herod, however, with

his soldiers, he disdained him and mocked him, ves-tiu him with a robe and resplendent again send it to Pilatos.12 That same day Herod and Pilate became friends, for before they were at enmity with each other .13 Then Pilate called together the chief priests and the rulers and the people, 14 and said to them, did show me how this man perverts the people, and behold Interro-gando it before you, I did not find any fault in him, of the that accuse, 15 nor Herod, for in it he sent, and behold, he has done nothing worthy of death.16 chastise him up now, and let go. 17 And he must needs release unto them one prisoner for the party. 18 But they cried out all at once, saying, Away with this release and the son of Rabbaz! 19 Now Rabbaz’s son, had been thrown into prison for a certain sedition made in the city, and for murder. 20 Again therefore told Pilate, willing to release Yehoshu ‘. 21 But they cried, saying, Crucify him! Crucify him! 22 He told them, then a third time: For what evil hath he done? Did not think it ne-nhuma cause of death. I will chastise him therefore, and release him. 23 But they were urgent with loud voices, asking that he be crucified. And their voices prevailed. 24 So Pilate decided to meet them the request; 25 and gave them what they had been thrown into prison for insurrection and murder, which was what they asked, but gave Yehoshu ‘to their will. 26 When they led him away they took certain Shimon, Cyrene, coming from the country, and they laid the cross that led to Yehoshu after ‘. 27 And there followed him a great multitude of people, and of women, which also bewailed and lamented him. 28 Yehoshu ‘But turning to them, said: Daughters

of Yehoshaléym not weep for me, but weep for yourselves, and for your children. 29 For the days will come when they will say, ‘Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bore and the breasts that never nursed! 30 Then shall they begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us, and to the hills, Cover us. 31 For if this makes the green wood, what will be done in the dry? 32 And he brought also with other

two, that malefactors, to be killed. 33-Quan came to the place called Calvary, there they crucified him, and with it also the malefactors, one on the right and the other at the left Yehoshu 34 ‘, but said: Father, forgive them, for they do not know-what do. Then they divided his garments, pouring lots upon them. 35 And the people stood looking. And authorities themselves mocked him, saying, He saved others; save himself, if it is the Messiah, the chosen Y’HWH. 36 The soldiers also Escar-neciam, coming up to him, offering him vinegar, 37 and saying: If thou be the king of yehudin, you save yourself. 38 Above him was this inscription in letters of Greek, and Hebrew, THIS IS THE KING OF YEHUDIN. 39 And one of the malefactors which were hanged, railed on him, saying, It is not you the Messiah? You save yourself and us. 40 However, in response the other, represented India it, saying not even fear God, in the same condemnation? 41 And we indeed justly, for we receive the reward of our deeds: but this did no harm. 42 Then said Yeshu ‘, remember me when you come into your kingdom. 43 answered him Yehoshu ‘Verily I say to you today you will be with me in paradise. 44 It was now about the sixth hour, and there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour, for the sun was darkened; 45 and tore through the veil of the sanctuary. 46 Yehoshu ‘, cla-mand with a loud voice, said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit. And having said this, he expired. 47 When the centurion saw what was done, he glorified the eternal God, saying, Certainly this was a righteous man. 48 And all the crowds who witnessed this spectacle saw what had happened, they returned beating his chest. 49-Between

Therefore, all known Yehoshu ‘, and the women who had followed him from the Galil, stood afar off, beholding these things. 50 Then a man named Yoseh, born in Ramah, a city of yehudin, Sine-member drio, good and righteous man, 51 who had not consented

the counsel and deed of others, and that he hoped the realm of the eternal God, 52 man went unto Pilate, and begged the body

of Yehoshu ‘; 53 and took it down from the cross, wrapped it in a linen cloth, and laid him in a sepulcher that was hewn in stone, wherein was never man yet laid. 54 It was the day of preparation, and the sabbath drew on. 55 And the women who had come with him from Galilee, following Yoseh they saw the tomb and how his body was laid. 56 Then they returned and prepared spices and ointments. And on the Sabbath they rested according to the commandment.

24 But on the first day of the week, the well-to madruga, they came to the sepulcher, bringing the spices which they had prepared. 2 And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulcher. Entering the third, but found not the body of the Lord Yehoshu ‘. 4 And, as they were much perplexed thereabout, behold, two men appeared to them in shining garments; 5 and leaving them frightened and Abai Xando-face to the earth, they said unto them, Why seek ye among the dead for one who lives? 6 He is not here, but is risen. Remember how he told you, while still in the Galil, 7 saying that the Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again. 8 And they remembered then his words, 9 and returned from the sepulcher, and told all these things unto the eleven, and to all others. 10 And they were Myriam Magdalla and Y’ochanah, and Myriam, Mother of Ya’acov, and the others with them who told these things to apóstolos.11 And it seemed to them as idle tales the women’s words and did not give them credit But Kefah .12, arose and ran to the tomb, and, lowering up, saw only the linen cloths, and withdrew; admiring with what had happened. 13 That same day two of them went to a

village called Ammaús that headquarters was sixty furlongs from Yehoshaléym; 14 and were commenting to each other all that had happened. 15 While well-commented

They then stopped sad. 18 And one of them named Kleopas, answered him: Are you the only stranger in Yehoshaléym not know the things that have happened there in these days? 19 And he said unto them, What things? They said: The concern that Yehoshu ‘of Nazareth, who was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God’s eternal and all the people, 20 and how the chief priests and the authorities handed him over to be sentenced to death , and crucified him. 21 However, we es-perávamos it was he who had redeemed Israel: and beside all this, today is the third day since these things aconteceram.22 Truth is, also, that some women in our midst filled us with awe, as we were early at the sepulcher 23 and, not finding his body, came, saying that they had seen a vision of angels who said that he was alive. 24 Furthermore, some of which were with us went to the tomb and found it just as the women had said; him, but not seen. 25 Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken! 26 Did not matter that the Messiah pa-Decesse these things and enter into his glory? 27 And beginning at Mosheh, and all the prophets, he interpreted to them the things concerning Himself in all the Torah; Scripture. 28 As they approached the village where they were going, he made as though he were going farther. 29 But they constrained him, saying, Abide with us: for it is toward evening, and the day declined. He went in to stay with them. 30 Being at the table with them, he took bread and blessed it, and, leaving him gave. 31 were opened to them then the eyes, and the rec-nheceram, he vanished from their sight. 32 E

said one to another, Did not we open it sava heart when he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the Scriptures? 33 And the same hour levan-sented up and returned to Yehoshaléym, and found the eleven gathered together and those who were with them, 34 which

said: Truly the Lord is risen and has appeared to Shimon. 35 Then the two told what had happened in

way, and how they had known in the breaking of bread. 36 While still talking about it, the very Yehoshu ‘appeared in their midst, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you. 37 But they were terrified and frightened, thinking they saw a spirit. 38 But he said unto them, Why are ye troubled? And why doubts arise in your hearts? 39 Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have. 40 And saying this, he showed them his hands and feet. 41 Not believing them yet because of joy, and wondered, he said unto them Yehoshu ‘: Have you anything here to eat? 42 And they gave him a piece of broiled fish, 43 which he took and ate before them. 44 Then saith unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, being yet present with you, what mattered was that cumpris-without all that were written in the Law of Mosheh, the Prophets and the Psalms. 45 Then he opened their under-standing might understand the scriptures, 46 and said unto them, Thus it is written in the Torah that the Messiah padeces up, and the third day rise from the dead, 47 and that should be preached in his name repentance for the remission of sins to all nations, beginning at Yehoshaléym. 48 And ye are witnesses of these things. 49 And behold, I send upon you the promise of my Father: but tarry ye in the city, until ye be clothed with the high power. 50 And brought them out, to Beth-Aniah, and raising hands, abençoou.51 It happened, while he blessed them, he departed from them, and carried up into heaven. 52 And after the worship, returned with great joy to Yehoshaláym; 53 and were continually in the temple blessing God eternal Y’HWH.
