Luke Chapter 16 & Mark
16:1 And he said also unto his disciples, There was a certain rich man,
which had a steward; and the same was accused unto him that he had
wasted his goods.
16:2 And he called him, and said unto him, How is it that I hear this of
thee? give an account of thy stewardship; for thou mayest be no longer
16:3 Then the steward said within himself, What shall I do? for my lord
taketh away from me the stewardship: I cannot dig; to beg I am ashamed.
16:4 I am resolved what to do, that, when I am put out of the
stewardship, they may receive me into their houses.
16:5 So he called every one of his lord's debtors unto him, and said
unto the first, How much owest thou unto my lord?
16:6 And he said, An hundred measures of oil. And he said unto him, Take
thy bill, and sit down quickly, and write fifty.
16:7 Then said he to another, And how much owest thou? And he said, An
hundred measures of wheat. And he said unto him, Take thy bill, and
16:8 And the lord commended the unjust steward, because he had done
wisely: for the children of this world are in their generation wiser
than the children of light.
16:9 And I say unto you, Make to yourselves friends of the mammon of
unrighteousness; that, when ye fail, they may receive you into
16:10 He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in
much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much.
16:11 If therefore ye have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon,
who will commit to your trust the true riches?
16:12 And if ye have not been faithful in that which is another man's,
who shall give you that which is your own?
16:13 No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one,
and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the
other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
16:14 And the Pharisees also, who were covetous, heard all these things:
and they derided him.
16:15 And he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before
men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed
among men is abomination in the sight of God.
16:16 The law and the prophets were until John: since that time the
kingdom of God is preached, and every man presseth into it.
16:17 And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass, than one tittle of
the law to fail.
16:18 Whosoever putteth away his wife, and marrieth another, committeth
adultery: and whosoever marrieth her that is put away from her husband
16:19 There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine
linen, and fared sumptuously every day:
16:20 And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at
his gate, full of sores,
16:21 And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich
man's table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.
16:22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the
angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;
16:23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth
Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.
16:24 And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send
Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my
tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.
16:25 But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime
receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he
is comforted, and thou art tormented.
16:26 And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf
fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither
can they pass to us, that would come from thence.
16:27 Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest
send him to my father's house:
16:28 For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they
also come into this place of torment.
16:29 Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them
16:30 And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from
the dead, they will repent.
16:31 And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets,
neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.
8:1 In those days the multitude being very
great, and having nothing to eat, Jesus called his disciples unto him,
and saith unto them,
8:2 I have compassion on the multitude, because they have now been with
me three days, and have nothing to eat:
8:3 And if I send them away fasting to their own houses, they will faint
by the way: for divers of them came from far.
8:4 And his disciples answered him, From whence can a man satisfy these
men with bread here in the wilderness?
8:5 And he asked them, How many loaves have ye? And they said, Seven.
8:6 And he commanded the people to sit down on the ground: and he took
the seven loaves, and gave thanks, and brake, and gave to his disciples
to set before them; and they did set them before the people.
8:7 And they had a few small fishes: and he blessed, and commanded to
set them also before them.
8:8 So they did eat, and were filled: and they took up of the broken
meat that was left seven baskets.
8:9 And they that had eaten were about four thousand: and he sent them
8:10 And straightway he entered into a ship with his disciples, and came
into the parts of Dalmanutha.
8:11 And the Pharisees came forth, and began to question with him,
seeking of him a sign from heaven, tempting him.
8:12 And he sighed deeply in his spirit, and saith, Why doth this
generation seek after a sign? verily I say unto you, There shall no sign
be given unto this generation.
8:13 And he left them, and entering into the ship again departed to the
8:14 Now the disciples had forgotten to take bread, neither had they in
the ship with them more than one loaf.
8:15 And he charged them, saying, Take heed, beware of the leaven of the
Pharisees, and of the leaven of Herod.
8:16 And they reasoned among themselves, saying, It is because we have
8:17 And when Jesus knew it, he saith unto them, Why reason ye, because
ye have no bread? perceive ye not yet, neither understand? have ye your
heart yet hardened?
8:18 Having eyes, see ye not? and having ears, hear ye not? and do ye
8:19 When I brake the five loaves among five thousand, how many baskets
full of fragments took ye up? They say unto him, Twelve.
8:20 And when the seven among four thousand, how many baskets full of
fragments took ye up? And they said, Seven.
8:21 And he said unto them, How is it that ye do not understand?
8:22 And he cometh to Bethsaida; and they bring a blind man unto him,
and besought him to touch him.
8:23 And he took the blind man by the hand, and led him out of the town;
and when he had spit on his eyes, and put his hands upon him, he asked
him if he saw ought.
8:24 And he looked up, and said, I see men as trees, walking.
8:25 After that he put his hands again upon his eyes, and made him look
up: and he was restored, and saw every man clearly.
8:26 And he sent him away to his house, saying, Neither go into the
town, nor tell it to any in the town.
8:27 And Jesus went out, and his disciples, into the towns of Caesarea
Philippi: and by the way he asked his disciples, saying unto them, Whom
do men say that I am?
8:28 And they answered, John the Baptist; but some say, Elias; and
others, One of the prophets.
8:29 And he saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? And Peter
answereth and saith unto him, Thou art the Christ.
8:30 And he charged them that they should tell no man of him.
8:31 And he began to teach them, that the Son of man must suffer many
things, and be rejected of the elders, and of the chief priests, and
scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again.
8:32 And he spake that saying openly. And Peter took him, and began to
8:33 But when he had turned about and looked on his disciples, he
rebuked Peter, saying, Get thee behind me, Satan: for thou savourest not
the things that be of God, but the things that be of men.
8:34 And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples also,
he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself,
and take up his cross, and follow me.
8:35 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall
lose his life for my sake and the gospel's, the same shall save it.
8:36 For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world,
and lose his own soul?
8:37 Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
8:38 Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this
adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be
ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.
Go ye therefore, and teach
all nations, baptizing them in
the name of the Father, and of
the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
