Reino dos Céus
Verily I say to you, there has not risen, among those born of women, a greater than John the Baptist, but he who is least in the reign of the heavens is greater than he.
'And, from the days of John the Baptist till now, the reign of the heavens does suffer violence, and violent men do take it by force,
and the Lord shall free me from every evil work, and shall save me -- to his heavenly kingdom; to whom is the glory to the ages of the ages! Amen.
'Not every one who is saying to me Lord, lord, shall come into the reign of the heavens; but he who is doing the will of my Father who is in the heavens.
therefore, a kingdom that cannot be shaken receiving, may we have grace, through which we may serve God well-pleasingly, with reverence and religious fear;
for also our God is a consuming fire.
Hearken, my brethren beloved, did not God choose the poor of this world, rich in faith, and heirs of the reign that He promised to those loving Him?
and I say to you, that many from east and west shall come and recline (at meat) with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the reign of the heavens,
'Whoever therefore may loose one of these commands -- the least -- and may teach men so, least he shall be called in the reign of the heavens, but whoever may do and may teach, he shall be called great in the reign of the heavens.
'For I say to you, that if your righteousness may not abound above that of the scribes and Pharisees, you may not enter to the reign of the heavens.
24 Another simile he set before them, saying: 'The reign of the heavens was likened to a man sowing good seed in his field,
25 and, while men are sleeping, his enemy came and sowed darnel in the midst of the wheat, and went away,
26 and when the herb sprang up, and yielded fruit, then appeared also the darnel.
27 'And the servants of the householder, having come near, said to him, Sir, good seed did you not sow in your field? Why then has it the darnel?
28 And he said to them, A man, an enemy, did this; and the servants said to him, Will you, then,that having gone away we may gather it up?
29 'And he said, No, lest -- gathering up the darnel -- you root up with it the wheat,
30 permit both to grow together till the harvest, and in the time of the harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather up first the darnel, and bind it in bundles, to burn it, and the wheat gather up into my storehouse.'
Another simile he set before them, saying: 'The reign of the heavens is like to a grain of mustard, which a man having taken, did sow in his field,
which less, indeed, is than all the seeds, but when it may be grown, is greatest of the herbs, and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the heaven do come and rest in its branches.'
But Jesus said, 'Permit the children, and forbid them not, to come unto me, for of such is the reign of the heavens;'
47 'Again, the reign of the heavens is like to a net that was cast into the sea, and did gather together of every kind,
48 which, when it was filled, having drawn up again upon the beach, and having sat down, they gathered the good into vessels, and the bad they did cast out,
49 so shall it be in the full end of the age, the messengers shall come forth and separate the evil out of the midst of the righteous,
50 and shall cast them to the furnace of the fire, there shall be the weeping and the gnashing of the teeth.'
Another simile spoke he to them: 'The reign of the heavens is like to leaven, which a woman having taken, hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened.'
23 And Jesus said to his disciples, 'Verily I say to you, that hardly shall a rich man enter into the reign of the heavens;
24 and again I say to you, it is easier for a camel through the eye of a needle to go, than for a rich man to enter into the reign of God.'
25 And his disciples having heard, were amazed exceedingly, saying, 'Who, then, is able to be saved?'
26 And Jesus having earnestly beheld, said to them, 'With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.'
And in those days comes John the Baptist, proclaiming in the wilderness of Judea,
and saying, 'Reform, for come near has the reign of the heavens,'
therefore, the rather, brethren, be diligent to make stedfast your calling and choice, for these things doing, you may never stumble,
for so, richly shall be superadded to you the entrance into the age-during reign of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
From that time began Jesus to proclaim and to say, 'Reform you, for come near has the reign of the heavens.'
44 'Again, the reign of the heavens is like to treasure hid in the field, which a man having found did hide, and from his joy goes, and all, as much as he has, he sells, and buys that field.
45 'Again, the reign of the heavens is like to a man, a merchant, seeking goodly pearls,
46 who having found one pearl of great price, having gone away, has sold all, as much as he had, and bought it.
1 At that hour came the disciples near to Jesus, saying, 'Who, now, is greater in the reign of the heavens?'
2 And Jesus having called near a child, did set him in the midst of them,
3 and said, 'Verily I say to you, if you may not be turned and become as the children, you may not enter into the reign of the heavens;
4 whoever then may humble himself as this child, he is the greater in the reign of the heavens.
thus therefore pray you: 'Our Father, whois in the heavens, hallowed be Your name!
'Your reign come: Your will come to pass, as in heaven also on the earth.
'And I also say to you, that you are a rock, and upon this rock I will build my assembly, and gates of Hades shall not prevail against it;
and I will give to you the keys of the reign of the heavens, and whatever you may bind upon the earth shall be having been bound in the heavens, and whatever you may loose upon the earth shall be having been loosed in the heavens.'
'Fear not, little flock, because your Father did delight to give you the reign;
3 'Blessed the poor in spirit -- because theirs is the reign of the heavens.
4 'Blessed the mourning -- because they shall be comforted.
5 'Blessed the meek -- because they shall inherit the land.
6 'Blessed those hungering and thirsting for righteousness -- because they shall be filled.
7 'Blessed the kind -- because they shall find kindness.
8 'Blessed the clean in heart -- because they shall see God.
9 'Blessed the peacemakers -- because they shall be called Sons of God.
10 'Blessed those persecuted for righteousness' sake -- because theirs is the reign of the heavens.
11 'Blessed are you whenever they may reproach you, and may persecute, and may say any evil thing against you falsely for my sake --
12 rejoice you and be glad, because your rewardis great in the heavens, for thus did they persecute the prophets who were before you.
'And, going on, proclaim saying that, the reign of the heavens has come near;
for this you know, that every whoremonger, or unclean, or covetous person, who is an idolater, has no inheritance in the reign of the Christ and God.
36 Then having let away the multitudes, Jesus came to the house, and his disciples came near to him, saying, 'Explain to us the simile of the darnel of the field.'
37 And he answering said to them, 'He who is sowing the good seed is the Son of Man,
38 and the field is the world, and the good seed, these are the sons of the reign, and the darnel are the sons of the evil one,
39 and the enemy who sowed them is the devil, and the harvest is a full end of the age, and the reapers are messengers.
40 'As, then, the darnel is gathered up, and is burned with fire, so shall it be in the full end of this age,
41 the Son of Man shall send forth his messengers, and they shall gather up out of his kingdom all the stumbling-blocks, and those doing the unlawlessness,
42 and shall cast them to the furnace of the fire; there shall be the weeping and the gnashing of the teeth.
43 'Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the reign of their Father. He who is having ears to hear -- let him hear.
