Christ teacheth to pray, and that instantly:
Luke 11:1 And it fortuned as he was prayinge in a certayne place: when he ceased, one of his disciples sayde vnto hym: Lorde, teache vs to praye, as Iohn also taught hys disciples. Luke 11:2 And he sayde vnto them: when ye praye, saye. O oure father which art in heauen, halowed be thy name. Thy kyngdome come. Thy will be fulfilled, euen in erth also as it is in heauen. Luke 11:3 Oure dayly breed geue vs this daye. Luke 11:4 And forgeue vs our synnes: For euen we forgeue euery man that treapaseth vs. And Leade vs not into temptacion But deliuer vs from euyll. Luke 11:5 And he sayd vnto them: yf any of you shall haue a frend, & shall go to him at mydnight, and saye vnto him, frende: lende me thre loaues, Luke 11:6 for a frende of myne is come out of the waye to me, and I haue nothynge to set before him, Luke 11:7 and he within answere, and saye: trouble me not, the dore is now shut, and my chyldren are with me in the chamber, I cannot ryse and geue the. Luke 11:8 I saye vnto you, though he wyll not arise and geue him, because he is his frende: yet because of his importunite he will rise, and geue him as many as he nedeth. Luke 11:9 And I saye 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 þt asketh, receaueth: and he that seketh, fyndeth: & to him þt knocketh, shall it be opened.
assuring that God so will give us good things.
Luke 11:11 Yf þe sonne shall aske breed of eny of you that is a father, wyll he geue him a stone? Or yf he aske fishe, wyll he for fysshe geue him a serpent? Luke 11:12 Or yf he aske an egge, will he offer him a scorpion? Luke 11:13 Yf ye then beyng euyll, can geue good giftes vnto youre children, how moch moare shall your father of heauen geue the holy sprete to them, that desyre it of him?
He casting out a dumb devil, rebuketh the blasphemous Pharisees:
Luke 11:14 And he was castinge out a deuyll, and the same was domme. And when he had cast out the deuill, the domme spake, & the people wondred. Luke 11:15 But some of them sayde: he casteth out deuyls thorowe Beelzebub the chefe of the deuyls. Luke 11:16 And other tempted him and requyred of him a signe from heauen. Luke 11:17 But he knowing their thoughtes, sayd vnto them: Euery kyngdome deuided agaynst it selfe, is desolate: and one house doth fall vpon another. Luke 11:18 Yf Satan also, be deuyded agaynst him selfe, how shall his kyngdome endure? Because ye saye, that I cast out deuyls thorow Beelzebub. Luke 11:19 If I, by the helpe of Beelzebub cast out deuyls, by whose helpe do youre 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 doute the kyngdome of God is come vpon you. Luke 11:21 When a stronge man armed watcheth his house: the thinges that he possesseth are in peace. Luke 11:22 But when a stronger then he commeth vpon him, and ouercommeth him, he taketh from him all his harnes (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 vnclene spryte is gone out of a man, he walketh through drie places, sekynge reest. And when he fyndeth none, he sayeth: I will returne agayne vnto my houses, 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 him seuen other spretes worse then him selfe: and they enter in, & dwell there. And the ende of that man, is worse then the begynnynge.
Luke 11:27 And it fortuned that as he spake these thynges, a certayne woman of the company lyfte vp her voyce, and sayd vnto him. Happy is the wombe that bare the, and the pappes which gaue the sucke.
and sheweth who are blessed:
Luke 11:28 But he sayde: Yee, 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 nacion. they seke a sygne, and ther shall no sygne be geuen them, but the sygne of Ionas the prophet. Luke 11:30 For as Ionas was a sygne to the Niniuytes, so shall also the sonne of man be to thys nacion. Luke 11:31 The quene of the south shall ryse at the iudgement, with the men of this nacion, and condempne them: for she came from the vttemost partes of the erth, to heare the wisdome of Salomon. And beholde a greater then Salomon is here. Luke 11:32 The men of Niniue shall ryse at the iudgement with this nacyon: and shall condempne them: for they were brought to repentaunce by þe preachynge of Ionas. And beholde, a greater then Ionas is here. Luke 11:33 No man lyghteth a candell, and putteth it in a preuy place, nether vnder a busshell: but on a candelstycke, that they which come in, maye se the light. Luke 11:34 The lyght of the body is the eye. Therfore, when thyne eye is syngle, all thy body also shalbe full of lyght. But yf thyne eye be euill, thy body also shalbe full of darknes, Luke 11:35 Take hede therfore, that the lyght which is in the, be not darcknes. Luke 11:36 Yf all thy body therfore be cleare, hauynge no parte darcke: then shal it all be full of light, euen as when a candell doeth lyght the with bryghtnes.
and reprehendeth the outward shew of holiness in the Pharisees, scribes, and lawyers.
Luke 11:37 And as he spake, a certayne Pharyse besought him, to dyne with him, and Iesus went in, and sate doune to meate. Luke 11:38 When the Pharyse sawe it, he marueyled, that he had not fyrst wesshed before dyner. Luke 11:39 And þe Lorde sayde vnto him: Now do ye Pharises, make clene the out syde of the cup, and the platter: but youre inwarde parte is full of rauenynge and wyckednes. Luke 11:40 Ye fooles, dyd not he (that made that which is without) make that which is within also? Luke 11:41 Neuerthelesse, geue almose of that ye haue, and behold, all thinges are cleane vnto you. Luke 11:42 But wo vnto you Pharises, for ye tythe mynt and rewe, and all manner erbes, 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 Pharises: for ye loue the vppermost seates in the sinagoges, and gretinges in the market. Luke 11:44 Wo vnto you scrybes and Pharises, ye ypocrites, for ye are as graues which appeare not, and the men that walke ouer them, are not ware of them.
Luke 11:45 Then answered one of the lawears, and sayde vnto him: Master, thus saying thou puttest vs to rebuke also. Luke 11:46 And he sayde: wo vnto you also ye lawers: for ye lade men with burthens which they be not not able to beare: and ye youre selues touche not the packes with one of youre fyngers. Luke 11:47 Wo vnto you: ye buylde the sepulchres of the Prophetes, and youre fathers kylled them, Luke 11:48 truly ye beare witnes, that ye alowe the dedes of youre fathers: for they kylled them, and ye buylde their sepulchres. Luke 11:49 Therfore sayde the wisdome of God, I will send them Prophetes and Apostles and some of them they shall slaye and persecute: Luke 11:50 that the bloude of all Prophetes (which is shed from the begynninge of the worlde) maye be required of this generacion, Luke 11:51 from the bloude of Abell, vnto the bloud of Zachary, which perished betwene the aulter and the temple. Uerely I saye vnto you: it shalbe required of this nacion. Luke 11:52 Wo vnto you lawears: for ye haue taken awaye the keye of knowledge, ye entred not in youre selues, and them that came in, ye forbad. Luke 11:53 When he thus spake vnto them, the lawears and the Pharises began to wexe busye aboute him, and capciously to aske him many thinges, Luke 11:54 layinge wayte for him, and sekynge to catche some thinge of his mouth, wherby they might accuse him.
