1 IT was on the shabath, while Jeshu was walking among the corn, and his disciples gathered the ears, and rubbed in their hands and ate (them).
2 But some of the Pharishee said to them, Why do you a thing which it is not lawful on the shabuth to do?
3 Jeshu answered and said to them, And this have you not read, what David did when he hungered, and they who were with him?
4 that he went into the house of Aloha, and the bread of the table of the Lord he took, ate, and gave to them who were with him, that (bread) which was not lawful to eat, except by the priests only?
5 And he said to them, That the Lord of the shabath is the Son of man.
6 And it was on another shabath (that) he entered into the synagogue, and taught. And there was a man whose right hand was dried:
7 and the Sophree and Pharishee watched him, if he would heal on the shabath, that they might accuse him.
8 But he knew their thoughts, and said to the man whose hand was dried, Rise (and) come into the midst of the assembly.
9 And when he had come and stood, Jeshu said to them, I ask you which is lawful to do on the shabath, good or evil, life to save or to destroy?
10 And he beheld them all, and said to him, Stretch forth thine hand: and he stretched it forth, and his hand was restored as its fellow.
11 But they were filled with envy, and spake one with another what they should do with Jeshu.
12 BUT it was in those days that Jeshu went forth into a mountain to pray; and there remained he all night in the prayer of Aloha.
13 And when the day brake, he called his disciples, and chose from them twelve, those whom he named Apostles,
14 Shemun, he whose name was Kipha, and Andreas his brother, and Jacub, and Juchanon, and Philipos, and Bar Tholmai,
15 and Mathai, and Thoma, and Jakub bar Chalphai, and Shemun who was called the Zealous,
16 and Jihuda bar Jakub, and Jihuda Scaruta, he who was the traitor.
17 And Jeshu descended with them, and stood in the plain, and a great assembly of his disciples and a multitude of people from all Jehud, and from Urishlem, and from the sea-coast of Tsur and Tsaidon,
18 who had come to hear his words, and to be healed of their diseases; and they who were vexed by unclean spirits, and they were healed.
19 And all the multitudes sought to approach to him, for the power went forth from him, and all of them he healed.
20 AND he lifted up his eyes upon his disciples, and said, Blessed are you poor, for yours is the kingdom of Aloha.
21 Blessed are you who hunger now, for you shall be satisfied. Blessed are you who weep now, for you shall laugh.
22 Blessed are you when the sons of man hate you, and separate you, and revile you, and cast out your name as evil, for the sake of the Son of man.
23 Rejoice in that day, and exult, for your reward is great in heaven; for thus did they to your fathers the prophets.
24 But woe to you (who are) rich, because you have received your consolation.
25 Woe to you (who are) full, for you shall hunger. Woe to you who laugh now, for you shall weep and lament.
26 Woe to you when the sons of men shall speak well of you, for so did to the prophets of falsity their fathers.
27 But I say to you who hear, Love your adversaries, and do good to those who hate you,
28 and bless those who execrate you, and pray for those who lead you by violence.
29 And to one who striketh you on your cheek, offer to him the other: and whosoever taketh your cloak, forbid him not your coat also.
30 To every one who asketh of you give; and from him who taketh of yours demand not (again).
31 And as you will that the sons of man should do to you, so do you also to them.
32 For if you love them who love you, what is your grace? for sinners also love those who love them.
33 And if you do good to those who benefit you, what is your grace? for the sinners also thus do.
34 And if you lend to them from whom you expect to be recompensed, what is your grace? for sinners also lend to sinners, that they might be profited.
35 But love your adversaries, and do good to them, and lend, and cut not off the hope of any one; and great shall be your reward, and you shall be the children of the Most High; for he is benign to the evil and to the ungrateful.
36 Be you therefore merciful, as also your Father is merciful.
37 JUDGE not, and you shall not be judged; condemn not, and you shall not be condemned; release, and you shall be released;
38 give, and it shall be given to you; in good measure, compressed, redundant, shall they pour into your bosoms. For in that measure you mete, it shall be measured to you.
39 And he spake to them a parable: How can the blind lead the blind, and not fall into the ditch?
40 The disciple than his master is not greater; but every man who is perfect shall be as his master.
41 For why behold you the rod that is in the eye of your brother, but the rafter in your (own) eye is not seen by you?
42 Or how can you say to your brother, My brother, permit (that) I pull out the rod that is in your eye, and behold the rafter in your own eye is not seen by you? Hypocrite! first take out the rafter from your own eye, and then shall you see to take out the rod that is in the eye of your brother.
43 A good tree maketh not evil fruits; also an evil tree maketh not good fruits:
44 for every tree by its fruits is known. For how gather they from thorns figs? neither also from the bramble do they gather in grapes.
45 The good man, from the good treasures which are in his heart, bringeth forth good things; and the evil man, from the evil treasures which are in his heart, bringeth forth evil things; for from the adundancies of the heart the lips speak.
46 Why call you me, My Lord, my Lord, and the things which I say do not?
47 Every man who cometh to me and heareth my words, and doeth them, I will show you to whom he is like.
48 He is like a man who built a house, and digged deep, and laid the foundations upon the rock: but when there was an inundation, the inundation beat against that house, and it could not shake it, for its foundations were set upon a rock.
49 And he who heareth and doeth not, is like a man who built his house upon the dust, without a foundation: and when the river beat against it, it immediately fell, and the ruin was great of that house.
