Matthew, Chapter 13

13:1 And when they had come to the multitude, there came to him a man, kneeling to him, and saying,
13:2 Lord, have mercy on my son: for he is epileptic, and suffers grievously; for he often falls into the fire, and often into the water.
13:3 And I brought him to your disciples, and they could not cure him.
13:4 And Jesus answered and said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you+? How long shall I bear with you+? Bring him here to me.
13:5 And Jesus rebuked him; and the demon went out of him: and the boy was cured from that hour.
13:6 And while they were gathering together in Galilee, Jesus said to them, The Son of Man will be delivered up into the hands of men;
13:7 and they will kill him, and the third day he will be raised up. And they were exceedingly sorry.
13:8 And there arose a reasoning among them, which of them might be the greatest.
13:9 But Jesus knowing the reasoning of their heart, took a little child, and set him by his side,
13:10 and said to them, Whoever will receive this little child in my name receives me: and whoever will receive me receives him who sent me: for he who is least among all of you+, the same is great.
13:11 But whoever will cause one of these little ones to stumble, it is profitable for him that a great millstone should be hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea.
13:12 It is impossible but that occasions of stumbling should come; but woe to him, through whom the occasion comes!
13:13 And if your hand causes you to stumble, cut it off: it is good for you to enter into life maimed, rather than having your two hands to go into hell, into the unquenchable fire.
13:14 And if your foot causes you to stumble, cut it off: it is good for you to enter into life lame, rather than having your two feet to be cast into hell.
13:15 And if your eye causes you to stumble, cast it out: it is good for you to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into the hell of fire.
13:16 And there came a scribe, and said to him, Teacher, I will follow you wherever you go.
13:17 And Jesus says to him, The foxes have holes, and the birds of the heaven [have] nests; but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head.
13:18 And another of his disciples said to him, Lord, allow me first to go and bury my father.
13:19 But Jesus says to him, Follow me; and leave the dead to bury their own dead.
