11:1 And it was done, when he was praying in some place, as he ceased, one of his disciples said to him, Lord, teach us to pray, and John taught his disciples. And it fortuned as he was praying in a certain place: when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him: Master teach us to pray, As Jhon taught his disciples. And so it was, that as he was praying in a certain place, when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him, Master, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples. And it came to pass, that as he was praying in a certain place, when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him, Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples.
11:2 And he said to them, When ye pray, say ye, Father ours, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come to; thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven. And he said unto them: When ye pray, say: Our father which art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Let thy kingdom come. Thy will, be fulfilled, even in earth as it is in heaven. And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father, which art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name: Thy kingdom come: Let thy will be done even in earth, as it is in heaven: And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy Name, Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done as in heaven, so in earth.
11:3 Give to us today our each day’s bread. Our daily bread give us this day. Our daily bread give us for the day: Give us day by day our daily bread.
11:4 And forgive to us our sins, as and we forgive to each owing to us. And lead us not into temptation. And forgive us our sins: For even we forgive every man that trespasseth us, and lead us not into temptation, But deliver us from evil Amen. And forgive us our sins: for even we forgive every man that is indebted to us: And lead us not into temptation: but deliver us from evil. And forgive us our sins: for we also forgive every one that is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
11:5 And he said to them, Who of you shall have a friend, and shall go to him at midnight, and shall say to him, Friend, lend to me three loaves; And he said unto them: which of you shall have a friend and shall go to him at midnight, and say unto him: friend lend me four loaves Moreover he said unto them, Which of you shall have a friend, and shall go to him at midnight, & say unto him, Friend, lend me three loaves? And he said unto them, Which of you shall have a friend, and shall go unto him at midnight, and say unto him, Friend, lend me three loaves.
11:6 for my friend cometh to me of the way, and I have not what I shall set before him. for a friend of mine is come out of the way to me, and I have nothing to set before him, For a friend of mine is come out of the way to me, and I have nothing to set before him: For a friend of mine in his journey is come to me, and I have nothing to set before him,
11:7 And he withinforth answer and say, Do not thou be heavy to me; the door is now shut, and my children be with me in bed; I may not rise, and give to thee. And he within shall answer and say: Trouble me not, now is the door shut, and my servants are with me in the chamber, I cannot rise and give them to thee. And he within should answer, and say, Trouble me not: the door is now shut, and my children are with me in bed: I cannot rise and give them to thee. And he from within shall answer and say, Trouble me not, the door is now shut, and my children are with me in bed: I cannot rise and give thee.
11:8 And if he shall continue knocking, I say to you, though he shall not give to him, for he is his friend, nevertheless for his improbity, he shall rise, and give to him, as many as he hath need to. I say unto you: though he would not arise and give him, because he is his friend: Yet because of his importunity he will rise and give him as many as he needeth. I say unto you, though he would not arise and give him, because he is his friend, yet doubtless because of his importunity, he would rise, and give him as many as he needed. I say unto you, Though he will not rise, and give him, because he is his friend: yet because of his importunity, he will rise and give him as many as he needeth.
11:9 And I say to you, ask ye, and it shall be given to you; seek ye, and ye shall find; knock ye, and it shall be opened to you. And I say unto you: ask, and it shall be given you. Seek, and ye shall find. knock, and it shall be opened unto you. And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you: seek, and ye shall find: knock, and it shall be opened unto you. And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you: seek, and ye shall find: knock, and it shall be opened unto you.
11:10 For each that asketh, taketh, and he that seeketh, findeth; and to a man that knocketh, it shall be opened. For every one that asketh, receiveth: and he that seeketh, findeth: and to him that knocketh shall it be opened. For every one that asketh, receiveth: & he that seeketh, findeth: and to him that knocketh, it shall be opened. For every one that asketh, receiveth: and he that seeketh, findeth: and to him that knocketh, it shall be opened.
11:11 Therefore who of you asketh his father bread, whether he shall give him a stone? or if he asketh fish, whether he shall give him a serpent for the fish? If the son ask bread of any of you which is his father: will he proffer him a stone? Or if he ask fish, will he give him a serpent? If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent? If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? Or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent?
11:12 or if he shall ask an egg, whether he shall areach him a scorpion? Or if he ask an egg: will he proffer him a scorpion? Or if he ask an egg, will he give him a scorpion? Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion?
11:13 Therefore if ye, when ye be evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more your Father of heaven shall give a good Spirit to men that ask him. If ye then which are evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children? How much more shall your father celestial, give a good spirit to them, that desire it of him. If ye then which are evil, can give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your heavenly Father give the holy Ghost to them, that desire him? If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the holy Spirit to them that ask him?
11:14 And he was casting out a fiend, and it was dumb. And when he had cast out the fiend, the dumb man spake; and the people wondered. And he was a casting out a devil, which was dumb. And it followed when the devil was gone out, the dumb spake, and the people wondered Then he cast out a devil which was dumb: and when the devil was gone out, the dumb spake, and the people wondered. And he was casting out a devil, and it was dumb. And it came to pass, when the devil was gone out, the dumb spake: and the people wondered.
11:15 And some of them said, In Beelzebub, prince of devils, he casteth out devils. Some of them said: he casteth out devils by the power of Belzebub, the chief of the devils.

11:16 And others tempting asked of him a token from heaven. And other tempted him seeking of him a sign from heaven. And others tempted him, seeking of him a sign from heaven. And other tempting him, sought of him a sign from heaven.
11:17 Forsooth he, as he saw the thoughts of them, said to them, Every realm parted against itself, shall be desolated, and an house shall fall upon an house. He knew their thoughts and said unto them: Every kingdom, at debate within itself shall be desolate: and one house shall fall upon another. But he knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself, shall be desolate, and an house divided against an house, falleth. But he knowing their thoughts, said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself, is brought to desolation: and a house divided against a house, falleth.
11:18 And if Satan be parted against himself, how shall his realm stand? For ye say, that I cast out fiends in Beelzebub. So if Satan be at variance within himself: how shall his kingdom endure? Because ye say that I cast out devils by the power of Belzebub? So if Satan also be divided against himself, how shall his kingdom stand, because ye say that I cast out devils through Beelzebub? If Satan also be divided against himself, how shall his kingdom stand? Because ye say that I cast out devils through Beelzebub.
11:19 And if I in Beelzebub cast out fiends, in whom your sons cast out? Therefore they shall be your doomsmen. If I by the power of Belzebub cast out devils: by whose power, do your children cast them out? Therefore shall they be your judges. If I through Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your children cast them out? Therefore shall they be your judges. And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your sons cast them out? therefore shall they be your judges.
11:20 But if I cast out fiends in the finger of God, then soothly the realm of God is come among you. But if I with the finger of God cast out devils, no doubt, the kingdom of God is come upon you. But if I by the finger of God cast out devils, doubtless the kingdom of God is come unto you. But if I with the finger of God cast out devils, no doubt the kingdom of God is come upon you.

Then goeth he, and taketh to him seven other spirits worse than himself: and they enter in, and dwell there, so the last state of that man is worse than the first. Then goeth he, and taketh to him seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in, and dwell there, and the last state of that man is worse than the first.

11:29 And when the people ran together, he began to say, This generation is a wayward generation; it seeketh a token, and a token shall not be given to it, but the token of Jonas, the prophet. When the people were gathered thick together: He began to say: This is an evil nation. They seek a sign, and there shall no sign be given them, but the sign of Jonas the prophet. And when the people were gathered thick together, he began to say, This is a wicked generation: they seek a sign, and there shall no sign be given them, but the sign of Jonas the Prophet.

For she came from the end of the world, to hear the wisdom of Solomon: and behold a greater than Solomon is here.

11:33 No man lighteneth a lantern, and putteth it in huddles, neither under a bushel, but on a candlestick, that they that go in, see light. No man lighteth a candle, and putteth it in a privy place, neither under a bushel: But on a candlestick, that they that come in, may see the light. No man lighteth a candle, & putteth it in a privy place, neither under a bushel: but on a candlestick, that they which come in, may see the light. No man when he hath lighted a candle, putteth it in a secret place, neither under a bushel, but on a candlestick, that they which come in may see the light.
11:34 The lantern of thy body is thine eye; if thine eye be simple, all thy body shall be light-full; but if it be wayward, all thy body shall be dark-full. The light of thy body is thine eye. Therefore, when thine eye is single: then is all thy body full of light. But if thine eye be evil: then shall all thy body also be full of darkness. The light of the body is the eye: therefore when thine eye is single, then is thy whole body light: but if thine eye be evil, then thy body is dark. The light of the body is the eye: therefore when thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of light: but when thine eye is evil, thy body also is full of darkness.
11:35 Therefore see thou, lest the light which is in thee, be darknesses. Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee, be not darkness. Take heed therefore, that the light which is in thee, be not darkness. Take heed therefore, that the light which is in thee, be not darkness.
11:36 Therefore if all thy body shall be light-full, not having any part of darknesses, it shall be all light-full, and as a lantern of brightness, it shall give light to thee. For if all thy body shall be light, having no part dark: then shall all be full of light, even as when a candle doth light thee with his brightness. If therefore thy whole body shall be light, having no part dark, then shall all be light, even as when a candle doth light thee with the brightness. If thy whole body therefore be full of light, having no part dark, the whole shall be full of light, as when the bright shining of a candle doth give thee light.
11:37 And when he spake, some Pharisee prayed, that he should eat with him. And he gone in, sat at the meat. And as he spake, a certain pharise besought him to dine with him: and Jesus went in, and sat down to meat.

And when the Pharise saw it, he marvelled that he had not first washed before dinner. And when the Pharise saw it, he marvelled that he had not first washed before dinner.
11:39 And the Lord said to him, Now ye Pharisees cleanse that that is withoutforth of the cup and the platter; but that thing of you that is within, is full of raven and wickedness. And the lord said to him: Now do ye; O pharises, make clean the outside of the cup, and of the platter: but your inward parts are full of ravening and wickedness. And the Lord said to him, Indeed ye Pharises make clean the outside of the cup, and of the platter: but the inward part is full of ravening and wickedness. And the Lord said unto him, Now do ye Pharises make clean the outside of the cup and the platter: but your inward part is full of ravening and wickedness.
11:40 Fools, whether he that made that that is withoutforth, made not also that that is within? Ye fools did not he that made that which is without: make that which is within also? Ye fools, did not he that made that which is without, make that which is within also? Ye fools, did not he that made that which is without, make that which is within also?
11:41 Nevertheless that thing that is over, give ye alms, and lo! all things be clean to you. Nevertheless ye give of that that ye have, and behold all is clean to you. Therefore, give alms of those things which are within, and behold, all things shall be clean to you. But rather give alms of such things as you have: and behold, all things are clean unto you.
11:42 But woe to you, Pharisees, that tithe mint, and rue, and all wort, and pass doom and the charity of God. For it behooved to do these things, and not to leave those. But woe be to you pharises, for ye tithe the mint, and rue, and all manner herbs, and pass over judgment, and the love of God. These ought ye to have done, and not to have left the other undone. But woe be to you, Pharises: for ye tithe the mint and the rue, and all manner herbs, and pass over judgement and the love of God: these ought ye to have done, and not to have left the other undone. But woe unto you Pharises: for ye tithe Mint and Rue, and all manner of herbs, and pass over judgement, and the love of God: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.
11:43 Woe to you, Pharisees, that love the first chairs in synagogues, and salutations in markets. Woe be to you pharises: for ye love the uppermost seats in the synagogues, and greetings in the markets.

Woe unto you Pharises: for ye love the uppermost seats in the Synagogues, and greetings in the markets.
11:44 Woe to you, that be as sepulchres, which appear not, and men walking above know not. Woe be to you scribes and pharises hypocrites, for ye are as graves which appear not, And men that walk over them, are not ware of them. Woe be to you, Scribes and Pharises, hypocrites: for ye are as graves which appear not, & the men that walk over them, perceive not. Woe unto you Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites: for ye are as graves which appear not, and the men that walk over them, are not aware of them.
11:45 Forsooth one of the wise men of law answering, said to him, Master, thou saying these things, doest despite also to us. Then answered one of the lawyers, and said unto him: Master, thus saying, thou puttest us to rebuke also. Then answered one of the expounders of the Law, and said unto him, Master, thus saying thou puttest us to rebuke also. Then answered one of the Lawyers, and said unto him, Master, thus saying, thou reproachest us also.
11:46 And he said, Also woe to you, wise men of the law, for ye charge men with burdens which they may not bear, and ye yourselves with your one finger touch not the heavinesses. Then he said: Woe be to you also ye lawyers: for ye lade men with burdens grievous to be borne, and ye yourselves touch not the packs with one of your fingers. And he said, Woe be to you also, ye interpreters of the Law: for ye lade men with burdens grievous to be borne, and ye yourselves touch not the burdens with one of your fingers. And he said, Woe unto you also ye lawyers: for ye lade men with burdens grievous to be borne, and ye yourselves touch not the burdens with one of your fingers.
11:47 Woe to you, that build burials of prophets; and your fathers slew them. Woe be to you that build the sepulchres of the prophets: for your fathers killed them: Woe be to you: for ye build the sepulchres of the Prophets, and your fathers killed them. Woe unto you: for ye build the sepulchres of the Prophets, and your fathers killed them.
11:48 Truly ye witness, that ye consent to the works of your fathers; soothly they slew them, but ye build their sepulchres. Truly ye bear witness, that ye allow the deeds of your fathers: for they killed them, and ye build their sepulchres. Truly ye bear witness, and allow the deeds of your fathers: for they killed them, and ye build their sepulchres. Truly ye bear witness that ye allow the deeds of your fathers: for they indeed killed them, and ye build their sepulchres.
11:49 Therefore and the wisdom of God said, I shall send to them prophets and apostles, and of them they shall slay and pursue, Therefore said the wisdom of God: I will send them prophets and Apostles, and of them they shall slay and persecute: Therefore said the wisdom of God, I will send them Prophets and Apostles, & of them they shall slay and persecute, Therefore also said the wisdom of God, I will send them Prophets and Apostles, and some of them they shall slay and persecute:
11:50 that the blood of all the prophets, that was shed out from the beginning of the world, be sought of this generation; That the blood of all prophets, which was shed from the beginning of the world, may be required of this generation, That the blood of all the Prophets, shed from the foundation of the world, may be required of this generation, That the blood of all the Prophets, which was shed from the foundation of the world, may be required of this generation,
11:51 from the blood of Abel unto the blood of Zacharias, which perished between the altar and the house. So I say to you, it shall be sought of this generation. from the blood of Abel unto the blood of Zacary, which perished between the altar and the temple. Verily I say unto you: it shall be required of this nation. From the blood of Abel unto the blood of Zacharias, which was slain between the altar and the Temple: verily I say unto you, it shall be required of this generation.

11:52 Woe to you, wise men of law, for ye have taken away the key of knowing; ye yourselves entered not in, and ye have forbidden them that entered. Woe be to you lawyers: for ye have taken away the key of knowledge, ye entered not in yourselves, and them that came in ye forbade. Woe be to you, interpreters of the Law: for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that came in, ye forbade. Woe unto you Lawyers: for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in, ye hindered.
11:53 And when he said these things to them, the Pharisees and wise men of law began grievously to against-stand him, and to stop his mouth of many things, When he thus spake unto them, the lawyers, and the pharises, began to wax busy about him and to stop his mouth with many questions, And as he said these things unto them, the Scribes and Pharisees began to urge him sore, and to provoke him to speak of many things, And as he said these things unto them, the Scribes and the Pharisees began to urge him vehemently, and to provoke him to speak of many things:
11:54 ambushing him, and seeking to take something of his mouth, that they should accuse him. Laying wait for him, and seeking to catch something of his mouth, whereby they might accuse him. Laying wait for him, and seeking to catch something of his mouth, whereby they might accuse him. Laying wait for him, and seeking to catch something out of his mouth, that they might accuse him.
