Christ teacheth to pray, and that instantly:
Luke 11:1 And so it was, that as he was praying in a certaine place, when he ceassed, one of his disciples sayde vnto hym: Lord teache vs to pray, as Iohn also taught his disciples. Luke 11:2 And he said vnto them, When ye pray, say: O our father which art in heauen, halowed be thy name, thy kyngdome come, thy wyll be fulfylled, euen in earth also, as it is in heauen. Luke 11:3 Our dayly breade geue vs this day. Luke 11:4 And forgeue vs our synnes: For euen we forgeue euery man that trespasseth vs. And leade vs not into temptation, but delyuer vs from euyll. Luke 11:5 And he sayde vnto them: Whiche of you shall haue a friende, and shall go vnto hym at mydnyght, and saye vnto hym, friende lende me three loaues, Luke 11:6 For a friende of mine is come out of the way to me, and I haue nothyng to set before hym: Luke 11:7 And he within aunswere, & say, trouble me not, the doore is nowe shut, and my children are with me in bedde, I can not ryse and geue thee. Luke 11:8 I saye vnto you, though he wyll not ryse and geue hym, because he is his friende: yet because of his importunitie he wyll ryse, and geue hym as many as he needeth. Luke 11:9 And I say vnto you, aske, and it shalbe geuen you, seke, and ye shall fynde, knocke, and it shalbe opened vnto you. Luke 11:10 For euery one that asketh, receaueth, and he that seketh, fyndeth, and vnto hym that knocketh, shall it be opened.
assuring that God so will give us good things.
Luke 11:11 If the sonne shall aske breade, of any of you that is a father, wyll he geue him a stone? Or yf he aske fisshe, wyll he for fisshe geue hym a serpent? Luke 11:12 Or yf he aske an egge, wyll he offer hym a scorpion? Luke 11:13 If ye then, being euyll, can geue good gyftes vnto your chyldren, howe muche more shall your father of heauen geue the holy spirite, to them that desire [it] of hym.
He casting out a dumb devil, rebuketh the blasphemous Pharisees:
Luke 11:14 And he was castyng out a deuyll, and the same was dumbe. And it came to passe, when the deuyll was gone out, the dumbe spake, & the people wondred. Luke 11:15 But some of the sayde, he casteth out deuils through Beelzebub, the chiefe of the deuils. Luke 11:16 And other tempted him, and required of hym a signe from heauen. Luke 11:17 But he knowyng their thoughtes, sayde vnto them: Euery kyngdome deuided agaynst it selfe, is desolate: and a housed [deuided] agaynst a house, falleth. Luke 11:18 If Satan also be deuided against him selfe, howe shall his kyngdome endure? Because ye saye that I cast out deuils through Beelzebub. Luke 11:19 If I by the helpe of Beelzebub cast out deuils, by whose helpe do your chyldren cast them out? Therfore shall they be your iudges. Luke 11:20 But yf I with the fynger of God cast out deuyls, no doubt the kyngdome of God is come vpon you. Luke 11:21 When a strong man armed, kepeth his palace, ye thynges that he possesseth are in peace. Luke 11:22 But whe a stronger then he commeth vpon hym, and ouercommeth hym, he taketh from him all his harnesse, wherin he trusted, and deuideth his goodes. Luke 11:23 He that is not with me, is against me: and he that gathereth not with me, scattereth [abrode.] Luke 11:24 When the vncleane spirite is gone out of a man, he walketh through drye places, sekyng rest: and when he fyndeth none, he sayth, I wyll returne vnto my house, whence I came out. Luke 11:25 And when he commeth, he fyndeth it swept and garnisshed. Luke 11:26 Then goeth he, and taketh to hym seuen other spirites, worse then him selfe, and they enter in, and dwell there: and the ende of that man, is worse then the begynnyng.
Luke 11:27 And it came to passe, that as he spake these thynges, a certayne woman of the company lyft vp her voyce, & saide vnto hym: Happy is the wombe that bare thee, and the pappes whiche gaue thee sucke.
and sheweth who are blessed:
Luke 11:28 But he sayde: Yea rather happy are they that heare the worde of God, and kepe it.
preacheth to the people:
Luke 11:29 When the people were gathered thicke together, he began to saye: This is an euyll natio, they seke a signe, and there shall no signe be geuen them, but the signe of Ionas the prophete. Luke 11:30 For as Ionas was a signe to the Niniuites, so shall also the sonne of man be to this nation. Luke 11:31 The Queene of the south shall ryse in iudgement with the men of this nation, and condempne them: for she came from the vtmost partes of the earth, to heare the wisedome of Solomon: And beholde, a greater then Solomon is here. Luke 11:32 The men of Niuiue shall rise in iudgement with this nation, and shall condempne them, for they repented at the preachyng of Ionas: and beholde, a greater then Ionas is here. Luke 11:33 No man lyghteth a candle, & putteth it in a priuie place, neither vnder a busshell: but on a candlesticke, that they which come in may see the lyght, Luke 11:34 The lyght of the body, is the eye: Therefore when thyne eye is single, all thy body also shalbe full of lyght. But if thyne eye be euyll, thy body also shalbe full of darknesse. Luke 11:35 Take heede therefore, that the lyght which is in thee, be not darknes. Luke 11:36 If all thy body therfore be cleare, hauyng no part darke, then shall it all be full of lyght, euen as when a candle doth lyght thee with bryghtnes.
and reprehendeth the outward shew of holiness in the Pharisees, scribes, and lawyers.
Luke 11:37 And as he spake, a certaine pharisee besought hym to dyne with hym: and Iesus went in, & sate downe to meate. Luke 11:38 When the pharisee sawe it, he marueyled that he had not first wasshed before dynner. Luke 11:39 And the Lorde said vnto him: Now do ye pharisees make cleane the outsyde of the cuppe, and the platter, but the inward part is full of your rauenyng and wickednesse. Luke 11:40 Ye fooles, dyd not he that made that whiche is without, make that which is within also? Luke 11:41 But rather geue almes of those thynges which are within, and beholde all thynges are cleane vnto you. Luke 11:42 But wo vnto you pharisees: for ye tithe mint & rue, and al maner hearbes, and passe ouer iudgement, and the loue of God: These ought ye to haue done, and yet not to leaue the other vndone. Luke 11:43 Wo vnto you pharisees: for ye loue the vppermost seates in ye synagogues, and greetynges in the markettes. Luke 11:44 Wo vnto you scribes and pharisees, ye hypocrites: for ye are as graues which appeare not, and the men that walke ouer them, are not ware of them.
Luke 11:45 Then aunswered one of the lawyers, and sayde vnto him: Maister, thus saying, thou puttest vs to rebuke also. Luke 11:46 And he sayde, Wo vnto you also ye lawyers: for ye lade me with burthens greeuous to be borne, and ye your selues touche not ye burthens with one of your fyngers. Luke 11:47 Wo vnto you, ye buylde the sepulchres of the prophetes, and your fathers kylled them. Luke 11:48 Truely, ye beare witnesse that ye alowe the deedes of your fathers: for they kylled them, and ye buylde their sepulchres. Luke 11:49 Therfore saide the wisedome of God, I wyl sende them prophetes and apostles, and some of them they shall slaye and persecute: Luke 11:50 That the blood of all the prophetes, which is shedde, from the foundation of the worlde, may be required of this generation, Luke 11:51 From the blood of Abel, vnto ye blood of Zacharie, whiche perished betwene the aulter & the temple: Ueryly I saye vnto you, it shalbe required of this nation. Luke 11:52 Wo vnto you lawyers: for ye haue taken away the keye of knowledge, ye entred not in your selues, and them that came in, ye forbad. Luke 11:53 When he thus spake vnto them, the lawyers & the pharisees began to vrge hym vehemently, and to prouoke hym to speake many thynges. Luke 11:54 Laying wayte for hym, and sekyng to catche somethyng out of his mouth, wherby they myght accuse hym.
