ESUS went unto
the mount of Olives.
. .2 And early in the
morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him;
and he sat down, and taught them.
. .3 And
the scribes and Pharisees brought in a woman caught committing adultery;
and when they had set her in the midst,
They say unto him, Master, this woman was caught committing adultery, in
the very act.
. .5 Now Moses in the law
commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?
. .6 This they said, to test him, that they might
have cause to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger
wrote on the ground.
. .7 So when they
continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is
without sin among you, let him be the first to cast a stone at

with his finger wrote on the ground.
And they which heard it, began going out one by one, beginning at the
eldest: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the

himself, he said unto her, Woman, whither are they gone? hath no man
. .11 She said, No man,
Lord. And Jesus said, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.
And as he passed by, he saw a man which was
blind from his birth.
. .13 And his
disciples asked him, saying, Rabbi, who did sin, this man, or his parents,
that he was born blind?
. .14 Jesus
answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the
works of God should be made manifest in him.
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that
entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other
way, the same is a thief and a robber.
But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.
. .17 To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear
his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them
. .18 And when he bringeth forth his
own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know

not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of

good shepherd layeth down his life for the sheep.
.21 He that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the
sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth:
and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth them.
.22 He fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the

know my own, and am known of mine.
. .24 And
other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring,
and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one
And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and
put him to a test, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal
. .26 He said unto him, What is
written in the law? how readest thou?
And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy
heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy
mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.
And he said unto him, Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou shalt
. .29 But he, willing to justify
himself, said unto Jesus, And who is my neighbour?
. .30 And Jesus answering said, A certain man went
down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him
of his raiment, and beat him, and departed, leaving him half

certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other
. .32 And likewise a Levite, when he
was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other
. .33 But a certain Samaritan, as he
journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on

wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought
him to an inn, and took care of him.
And on the morrow, he took out two denarii, and gave them to the host, and
said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I
come again, I will repay thee.
. .36 Which
now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among

shewed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou
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.
. .39 And he said unto them, When ye pray, say,
Father, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come.
.40 Give us each day our daily bread.
.41 And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive every one that is
indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation.
.42 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
. .43 For a friend of mine in his
journey is come to me, and I have nothing to set before him?
. .44 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.
. .45 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

it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be
opened unto you.
. .47 For every one that
asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it
shall be opened.
. .48 If a son shall ask a
fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent?

how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your
heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?
