From The Gospel
arrording to St. Matthew
Chapter. III." 15 SUFFER it to be so now; for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness.
Chapter IV. 4 It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
7 It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.
10 Get thee hence, Satan : for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.
17 Repent; for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
19 Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.
Chapter V. 3 BLESSED are the poor in spirit: for their's is the kingdom of heaven.
4 Blessed ure they that mourn : for they shall be comforted. .
5 Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
6 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness : for they shall be filled.
7 Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.
8 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
9 Blessed are the peacemakers : for they shall be called the children of God.
10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for their's is the kingdom of heaven.
11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.
12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad : for great is your reward in heaven : for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
13 | Ye are the salt of the earth : but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted ? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.
14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets : I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
