1611 King James Bible

Matthew 16

The Pharisees require a sign.

Matthew 16:1 The Pharises also, with the Sadduces, came, and tempting, desired him that hee would shew them a signe from heauen. Matthew 16:2 He answered, and said vnto them, When it is euening, yee say, [It will bee] faire weather: for the skie is red. Matthew 16:3 And in the morning, [It will be] foule weather to day: for the skie is red and lowring. O ye hypocrites, yee can discerne the face of the skie, but can ye not discerne the signes of the times? Matthew 16:4 A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a signe, and there shall no signe be giuen vnto it, but the signe of the Prophet Ionas. And hee left them, and departed. Matthew 16:5 And when his disciples were come to the other side, they had forgotten to take bread.

Jesus warneth his disciples of the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees.

Matthew 16:6 Then Iesus said vnto them, Take heed and beware of the leauen of the Pharises, and of the Sadduces. Matthew 16:7 And they reasoned among themselues, saying, [It is] because we haue taken no bread. Matthew 16:8 Which when Iesus perceiued, he said vnto them, O ye of little faith, why reason ye among your selues, because ye haue brought no bread? Matthew 16:9 Doe ye not yet vnderstand, neither remember the fiue loaues of the fiue thousand, and how many baskets ye tooke vp? Matthew 16:10 Neither the seuen loaues of the foure thousand, and how many baskets ye tooke vp? Matthew 16:11 How is it that ye doe not vnderstand, that I spake it not to you concerning bread, that ye should beware of the leauen of the Pharises, and of the Sadduces? Matthew 16:12 Then vnderstood they how that he bade them not beware of the leauen of bread: but of the doctrine of the Pharisees, and of the Sadduces.

The people's opinion of Christ,

Matthew 16:13 When Iesus came into the coasts of Cesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom doe men say, that I, the sonne of man, am? Matthew 16:14 And they said, Some [say that thou art] Iohn the Baptist, some Elias, and others Ieremias, or one of ye Prophets. Matthew 16:15 He saith vnto them, But whom say ye that I am?

and Peter's confession of him.

Matthew 16:16 And Simon Peter answered, and said, Thou art Christ the sonne of the liuing God. Matthew 16:17 And Iesus answered, and said vnto him, Blessed art thou Simon Bar Iona: for flesh and blood hath not reueiled it vnto thee, but my Father which is in heauen. Matthew 16:18 And I say also vnto thee, that thou art Peter, and vpon this rocke I will build my Church: and the gates of hell shall not preuaile against it. Matthew 16:19 And I will giue vnto thee the keyes of the kingdome of heauen: and whatsoeuer thou shalt bind on earth, shall be bound in heauen: whatsoeuer thou shalt loose on earth, shall be loosed in heauen. Matthew 16:20 Then charged hee his disciples that they should tel no man that he was Iesus the Christ.

Jesus foresheweth his death,

Matthew 16:21 From that time foorth began Iesus to shew vnto his disciples, how that he must goe vnto Hierusalem, and suffer many things of the Elders and chiefe Priests & Scribes, and be killed, and be raised againe the third day. Matthew 16:22 Then Peter tooke him, and began to rebuke him, saying, Be it farre from thee Lord: This shal not be vnto thee.

reproving Peter for dissuading him from it:

Matthew 16:23 But he turned, and said vnto Peter, Get thee behind mee, Satan, thou art an offence vnto me: for thou sauourest not the things that [be] of God, but those that [be] of men.

and admonisheth those that will follow him, to bear the cross.

Matthew 16:24 Then said Iesus vnto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him denie himselfe, and take vp his crosse, and follow me. Matthew 16:25 For whosoeuer will saue his life, shall lose it: and whosoeuer will lose his his life for my sake, shall finde it. Matthew 16:26 For what is a man profited, if hee shal gaine the whole world, and lose his owne soule? Or what shall a man giue in exchange for his soule? Matthew 16:27 For the sonne of man shall come in the glory of his father, with his Angels: and then he shall reward euery man according to his works. Matthew 16:28 Uerely I say vnto you, There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Sonne of man comming in his Kingdome.
