78. Jesus works a miracle to pay the tribute

money. M". 17.

And when they were come to Capernaum, A. D. 32. they that received tribute money came to Peter,

and said, Doth not your master pay ? tribute?
25 He saith, Yes. And when he was come into

the house, Jesus prevented him, saying, “What
“thinkest thou, Simon? of whom do the kings

66 of the earth take custom or tribute ? of their
26“ own children, or of strangers ?” Peter saith

unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith unto him,
27 “ Then are the children free. Notwithstand-

ing, lest we should offend them, go thou to
the sea, and cast an hook, and take up the
fish that first cometh up; and when thou hast

opened his mouth, thou shalt find a piece
“ of money: that take, and give unto them for

me and thee.”
79. The disciples contend who shall be the great-

est. Jesus exhorteth them to humility. Mk. 9.

AND being in the house he asked them, 33 “ What was it that ye disputed among your

“ selves by the way?" But they held their

peace: for by the way they had disputed among L. 9. 47 themselves, who should be the greatest. And Mk.9.35 Jesus, perceiving the thought of their heart, sat

down, and called the twelve, and saith unto

them, “If any man desire to be first, the same 36" shall be last of all, and servant of all.” And

he took a child, and set him in the midst of

them: and when he had taken him in his arms, M". 18. he said unto them, “Verily I say unto you,

3“ * Except ye be converted, and become as little - Ps.131.2. “ children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom .Cor

Neh. 5. 8.


The unmerciful servant. A. D. 32. “ certain king, which would take account of his M". 18.

“servants. And when he had begun to reckon, 24

one was brought unto him, which owed him

“ ten thousand talents. But forasmuch as he 25 $2 Kin. 4.1. “ had not to pay, his lord commanded him sto

“ be sold, and his wife, and children, and all
“ that he had, and payment to be made. The 26
“ servant therefore fell down, and worshipped
“ him, saying, Lord, have patience with me, and
“I will pay thee all. Then the lord of that 27
“ servant was moved with compassion, and
“ loosed him, and forgave him the debt. But 28
“ the same servant went out, and found one of
“ his fellowservants, which owed him an hun-
“ dred pence: and he laid hands on him, and
“ took him by the throat, saying, Pay me that
6 thou owest. And his fellowservant fell down 29
“ at his feet, and besought him, saying, Have

patience with me, and I will pay thee all.
“ And he would not: but went and cast him 30
“ into prison, till he should pay the debt. So 31
“ when his fellowservants saw what was done,
“ they were very sorry, and came and told unto
“ their lord all that was done. Then his lord, 32
“ after that he had called him, said unto him,
“O thou wicked servant, I forgave thee all that
“ debt, because thou desiredst me: shouldest 33
“ not thou also have had compassion on thy

fellowservant, even as I had pity on thee?
“ And his lord was wroth, and delivered him 34

“ to the tormentors, till he should pay all that
* Prov. 21.“ was due unto him. So likewise shall my 35

heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye from

your hearts forgive not every one his brother “ their trespasses.

80. The seventy disciples are instructed and sent

forth. L. 10.

AFTER these things the Lord appointed other A. D. 32. seventy also, and sent them two and two before his face into every city and place, whither he 2 himself would come. Therefore said he unto

them, “The harvest truly is great, but the “ labourers are few : pray ye therefore the 2 Thess. “ Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth 3“ labourers into his harvest. Go your ways :

behold, I send you forth as lambs among 4" wolves. Carry neither purse, nor scrip, nor 5“ shoes : and salute no man by the way. And Kings “ into whatsoever house ye enter, first say,

Peace be to this house. And if the son of

peace be there, your peace shall rest upon it: 7 “ if not, it shall turn to you again. And in the

same house remain, “ eating and drinking such 1 Cor. 10. things as they give: for the labourer is wor-a i Cor. 9.

thy of his hire. Go not from house to house. 4, &c. 8“ And into whatsoever city ye enter, and they 18.

“ receive you, eat such things as are set before 9" you: and heal the sick that are therein, and

say unto them, The kingdom of God is come 10“ nigh unto you. But into whatsoever city ye

“ enter, and they receive you not, go your ways

“ out into the streets of the same, and say, 11 “ e Even the very dust of your city, which cleav-Acts 13. “eth on us, we do wipe off against you: not

“ in that day for Sodom, than for that city.

“ Bethsaida ! 'for if the mighty works had been 'Ezek. 3.6.
