1 And it happened, when has finished the Jesus charging to the twelve disciples of himself, he departed thence, of the to teach and to preach in the cities of them.
2 The and John having heard in the prison the works of the Anointed, having sent two of the disciples of himself,
3 said to him: Thou art the coming one, or another are we to look for?
4 And answering the Jesus said to them: Going away relate to John what you hear and see;
5 blind ones see again, and lame ones are walking about, lepers are cleansed, and deaf ones are hearing, dead ones are raised up, and poor ones are addressed with joyful news;
6 and blessed is, whoever not may offended in me.
7 These and going away, began the Jesus to say to the crowds concerning John: What went you out in the desert to see? a reed by wind being shaken?
8 But what went you out to see? a man in soft garments having been clothed? Lo, those the soft (garments) wearing, in the houses of the kings are.
9 But what went you out to see? a prophet? Yes, I say to you, and much more of a prophet.
10 This for is, concerning whom it is written: Lo, I send the messenger of me before the face thee, who shall prepare the way of thee in presence of thee.
11 Indeed I say to you, not has risen among born of woman greater, of John the dipper; the but less in the kingdom of the heavens, greater of him is.
12 From and the days of John the dipper till now, the kingdom of the heavens has been invaded, and invaders seize on her.
13 All for the prophets and the law till John, prophesied.
14 And if you are willing to receive, this is Elias, that being about to come.
15 He having ears to hear let him hear.
16 To what but shall I compare the generation this? Like it is boys in markets sitting, and calling to the companions of them,
17 and saying: We have played on the flute to you, and not you have danced; We have mourned to you, and not you have lamented.
18 Came for John, neither eating nor drinking; and they say: A demon he has.
19 Came the son of the man, eating and drinking; and they say: Lo, a man glutton and a wine drinker, of taxgatherers a friend and sinners. But is justified the wisdom by the children of her.
20 Then he began to reproach the cities, in which were done the most mighty works of him, because not they reformed;
21 Woe to thee, Chorazin, Woe to thee, Bethsaida; for if in Tyre and Sidon had been done the mighty works, those being performed in you, long ago would in sackcloth and ashes they have reformed.
22 But I say to you: Tyre and Sidon more tolerable will be in a day of trial, than you.
23 And thou, Capernaum, which even to the heaven art being exalted, to invisibility shalt be brought down; for if in Sodom had been done the mighty works, those being done in thee, it had remained till this day.
24 But I say to you, that land of Sodom more tolerable will be in a day of trial, then thee.
25 On that the occasion answering the Jesus said: I adore thee, O Father, O Lord the heaven and of the earth, because thou hast hid these from wise men and discerning men, and thou hast revealed them to babes.
26 Yes, the Father, for even so it was good in presence of thee.
27 All to me are given by the Father of me; and no one knows the son, if not the Father; neither the Father any one knows, if not the son, and to whom may be willing the son to reveal.
28 Come to me all the toiling and being burdened, and I will cause to rest you.
29 Take the yoke of me upon you, and be informed by me; for meek I am, and humble to the heart and you shall find a rest to the lives of you.
30 The for yoke of me easy, and the burden of me light is.
