18:1 In that hour the disciples came to Jesus, saying, Who, guessest thou, is the greater in the kingdom of heavens? The same time the disciples came unto Jesus saying: who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven? The same time the disciples came unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven? At the same time came the Disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the Kingdom of heaven?
18:2 And Jesus, calling a little child, set him in the midst of them; Jesus called a child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them,
18:3 and said, Truly I say to you, but ye be turned, and be made as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heavens. and said: Verily I say unto you: except ye turn, and become as children, ye cannot enter into the kingdom of heaven. And said, Verily I say unto you, except ye be converted, & become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
18:4 Therefore whoever shall meek himself as this little child, he is the greater in the realm of heavens. whosoever therefore shall submit himself as this child, he is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the Kingdom of heaven.
18:5 And he that receiveth one such little child in my name, receiveth me. And whosoever receiveth such a child in my name, receiveth me. And whosoever shall receive such a little child in my Name, receiveth me. And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name, receiveth me.
18:6 Forsooth who shall offend one of these little, that believe in me, it speedeth to him that a millstone of asses be hanged in his neck, and that he be drowned in the deepness of the sea. But whosoever offend one of these little ones, which believe in me: it were better for him, that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. But whosoever shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him, that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the Sea.
18:7 Woe to the world, for offences; truly it is need, that offences come; nevertheless, woe to that man by whom an offence cometh. Woe be unto the world because of evil occasions. It is necessary that evil occasions be given, nevertheless woe be to that man, by whom evil occasion cometh. Woe be unto the world because of offences: for it must needs be that offences shall come, but woe be to that man, by whom the offence cometh. Woe unto the world because of offences: for it must needs be that offences come: but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh.
18:8 Forsooth if thine hand or thy foot offend thee, cut it off, and cast away from thee. It is good to thee to enter into life feeble, or crooked, than having two hands or two feet to be sent into everlasting fire. Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot give thee an occasion of evil: cut him off and cast him from thee. It is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than thou shouldest having two hands, or two feet, be cast into everlasting fire. Wherefore, if thine hand or thy foot cause thee to offend, cut them off, & cast them from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life, halt, or maimed, than having two hands or two feet, to be cast into everlasting fire. Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee, cut them off, and cast them from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet, to be cast into everlasting fire.
18:9 And if thine eye offend thee, pull it out, and cast away from thee. It is better to thee with one eye to enter into life, than having two eyes to be sent into hell fire. And if also thine eye offend thee, pluck him out and cast him from thee. It is better for thee to enter into life with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hellfire. And if thine eye cause thee to offend, pluck it out, & cast it from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life with one eye, than having two eyes, to be cast into hell fire. And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes, to be cast into hell fire.
18:10 See ye, that ye despise not one of these little. Truly I say to you, for the angels of them in heavens see ever the face of my Father which is in heavens. See that ye despise not one of these little ones For I say unto you, that in heaven their angels behold the face of my father, which is in heaven. See that ye despise not one of these little ones: for I say unto you, that in heaven their Angels always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven. Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones: for I say unto you, that in heaven their Angels do always behold the face of my father which is in heaven.
18:11 For man’s Son came to save that thing that perished. Yea and the son of man is come to save that which is lost. For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost. For the son of man is come to save that which was lost.
18:12 What seemeth to you? If there were to a man an hundred sheep, and one of them hath erred, whether he shall not leave ninety and nine in the hills, and shall go to seek that that erred? How think ye? If a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them should go astray, will he not leave ninety and nine in the mountains, and go and seek that one which is gone astray? How think ye? If a man have an hundred sheep, & one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave ninety & nine, and go into the mountains, and seek that which is gone astray? How think ye? if a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which is gone astray?
18:13 And if it befall that he find it, truly I say to you, for he shall joy thereon more than of ninety and nine that erred not. if it happen that he find him, verily I say unto you: he rejoiceth more of that sheep, than of the ninety and nine which went not astray. And if so be that he find it, verily I say unto you, he rejoiceth more of that sheep, than of the ninety and nine which went not astray. And if so be that he find it, Verily I say unto you, he rejoiceth more of that sheep, than of the ninety and nine which went not astray.
18:14 So it is not the will of your Father which is in heavens, that one of these little perish. Even so it is not the will of your father in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish. So is it not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish. Even so, it is not the will of your father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish.
18:15 Forsooth if thy brother shall sin against thee, go thou, and reprove him between thee and him alone; if he shall hear thee, thou hast won thy brother. Moreover if thy brother trespass against thee. Go and tell him his fault between him and thee alone. If he hear thee, thou hast won thy brother: Moreover, if thy brother trespass against thee, go, and tell him his fault between thee & him alone: if he hear thee, thou hast won thy brother. Moreover, if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother.
18:16 Truly if he shall not hear thee, take with thee one or two, that every word stand in the mouth of two or three witnesses. but if he hear thee not, then take with thee one or two, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses, all sayings may stand. But if he hear thee not, take yet with thee one or two, that by the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be confirmed. But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses, every word may be established.
18:17 That if he shall not hear them, say thou to the church. Forsooth if he shall not hear the church, be he to thee as an heathen man and a publican. If he hear not them, tell it unto the congregation: if he hear not the congregation, take him as an heathen man, and as a publican. And if he will not vouchsafe to hear them, tell it unto the Church: & if he refuse to hear the Church also, let him be unto thee as an heathen man, and a Publican. And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the Church: But if he neglect to hear the Church, let him be unto thee as an heathen man, and a Publican.
18:18 I say to you truly, whatever things ye shall bind on earth, shall be bound also in heaven; and whatever things ye shall unbind on earth, shall be unbound also in heaven. Verily I say unto you whatsoever ye bind on earth, shall be bound in heaven. And whatsoever ye loose on earth, shall be loosed in heaven. Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye bind on earth, shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye loose on earth, shall be loosed in heaven. Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth, shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth, shall be loosed in heaven.
18:19 Again I say to you, that if two of you shall consent on the earth, of each thing whatever they shall ask, it shall be done to them of my Father which is in heavens. Again I say unto you that if two of you shall agree in earth in any manner thing whatsoever they shall desire: it shall be given them of my father which is in heaven. Again, verily I say unto you, that if two of you shall agree in earth upon any thing, whatsoever they shall desire, it shall be given them of my Father which is in heaven. Again I say unto you, that if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my father which is in heaven.
18:20 For where two or three be gathered in my name, there I am in the midst of them. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them. For where two or three are gathered together in my Name, there am I in the midst of them. For where two or three are gathered together in my Name, there am I in the midst of them.
18:21 Then Peter came to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I shall forgive him? Whether till seven times? Then came Peter to him, and said: master, how oft shall my brother trespass against me, and I shall forgive him? shall I forgive him seven times? Then came Peter to him, & said, Master, how oft shall my brother sin against me, & I shall forgive him? unto seven times? Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times?
18:22 Jesus saith to him, I say not to thee, till seven times; but till seventy times seven times. Jesus said unto him: I say not unto thee seven times: but seventy times seven times. Jesus said unto him, I say not to thee, unto seven times, but unto seventy times seven times. Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.
18:23 Therefore the kingdom of heavens is likened to a king, that would reckon with his servants. Therefore is the kingdom of heaven likened unto a certain king, which would take accounts of his servants, Therefore is the kingdom of heaven likened unto a certain King, which would take accounts of his servants. Therefore is the kingdom of heaven likened unto a certain king, which would take accompt of his servants.
18:24 one was brought to him, that owed to him ten thousand bezants. and when he had begun to reckon, one was brought unto him, which ought him ten thousand talents: And when he had begun to reckon, one was brought unto him, which ought him ten thousand talents. And when he had begun to reckon, one was brought unto him which owed him ten thousand talents.
18:25 And when he had not whereof to yield, his lord commanded him to be sold, and his wife, and children, and all things that he had, and to be paid. but when he had nought to pay, the lord commanded him to be sold, & his wife, & his children: and all that he had, and payment to be made. And because he had nothing to pay, his master commanded him to be sold, and his wife, and his children, and all that he had, and the debt to be paid. But forasmuch as he had not to pay, his lord commanded him to be sold, and his wife, and children, and all that he had, and payment to be made.
18:26 But that servant felled down, and prayed him, saying, Have patience in me, and I shall yield to thee all things. The servant fell down and besought him saying: Sir Give me respite, and I will pay it every whit. The servant therefore fell down, and besought him, saying, Master, appease thine anger toward me, and I will pay thee all. The servant therefore fell down, and worshipped him, saying, Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay thee all.
18:27 Forsooth the lord of that servant having mercy, let go him, delivered him, and forgave to him the debt. Then had the lord pity on the servant, and loosed him, and forgave him the debt. Then that servant’s master had compassion, and loosed him, and forgave him the debt. Then the lord of that servant was moved with compassion, and loosed him, and forgave him the debt.
18:28 But that servant went out, and found one of his even-servants, that owed him an hundred pence; and he held him, and strangled him, saying, Yield that that thou owest. The same servant went out and found one of his fellows, which ought him an hundred pence. And laid hands on him, and took him by the throat, saying: pay that thou owest. But when the servant was departed, he found one of his fellows, which ought him an hundred pence, & he laid hands on him, and took him by the throat, saying, Pay me that thou owest. But the same servant went out, and found one of his fellow servants, which owed him an hundred pence: and he laid hands on him, and took him by the throat, saying, Pay me that thou owest.
18:29 And his even-servant fell down, and prayed him, saying, Have patience in me, and I shall requite all things to thee. And his fellow fell down, and besought him, saying: have patience with me, and I will pay thee all, Then his fellow fell down at his feet, and besought him, saying, Appease thine anger towards me, and I will pay thee all. And his fellow servant fell down at his feet, and besought him, saying, Have patience with me, and I will pay thee all.
18:30 But he would not; but went and sent him into prison, till he had paid all the debt. And he would not, but went and cast him in to prison, till he should pay the debt. Yet he would not, but went and cast him into prison, till he should pay the debt. And he would not: but went and cast him into prison, till he should pay the debt.
18:31 And his even-servants, seeing the things that were done, were sorrowed greatly. And they came, and told to their lord all the things that were done. When his other fellows saw what was done, they were very sorry and came and told unto their lord all that had happened. And when his other fellows saw what was done, they were very sorry, and came, and declared unto their master all that was done. So when his fellow servants saw what was done, they were very sorry, and came, and told unto their lord all that was done.
18:32 Then his lord called him, and said to him, Wicked servant, I forgave to thee all the debt, for thou prayedst me. Then the lord called him, and said unto him. O evil servant, I forgave thee all that debt, because thou prayedst me: Then his master called him, and said to him, O evil servant, I forgave thee all that debt, because thou prayedst me. Then his lord, after that he had called him, said unto him, O thou wicked servant, I forgave thee all that debt because thou desiredst me:
18:33 Therefore whether it behooved not also thee to have mercy on thy even-servant, as also I had mercy on thee? Was it not meet also, that thou shouldest have had compassion on thy fellow, even as I had pity on thee? Ought not thou also to have had pity on thy fellow, even as I had pity on thee? Shouldest not thou also have had compassion on thy fellow servant, even as I had pity on thee?
18:34 And his lord wroth, betook him to tormentors, till he had paid all the debt. and his lord was wroth, and delivered him to the jailers, till he should pay all that was due to him. So his master was wroth, and delivered him to the jailers, till he should pay all that was due to him. And his lord was wroth, and delivered him to the tormentors, till he should pay all that was due unto him.
18:35 So and my Father of heaven shall do to you, if ye forgive not every man to his brother, of your hearts. So likewise shall your heavenly father do unto you, if ye will not forgive with your hearts, each one to his brother their trespasses. So likewise shall mine heavenly Father do unto you, except ye forgive from your hearts, each one to his brother their trespasses. So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses.
