Christ teacheth to pray, and that instantly:
Luke 11:1 And it fortuned as he was praiynge in a certayne place: when he ceased, one of hys discyples said vnto hym: Mayster, teache vs to praye, as Iohn taught his disciples. Luke 11:2 And he sayde vnto them: When ye pray saye: O oure father whiche arte in heauen, halowed be thy name. Thy kyngedome come. They will be fulfylled euen in earthe as it is in heauen. Luke 11:3 Geue vs oure daylye breade euermore. Luke 11:4 And forgeue vs oure synnes: For euen we forgeue euery man that trespasseth vs: And ledde vs not into temptacyon. But deliuer vs from euyll. Luke 11:5 And he sayde vnto them: Yf any of you shoulde haue a frende, and shoulde go to hym at midnight, and saye vnto hym: frende lende me thre loues, Luke 11:6 for a frende of myne is come out of the waye to me, and I haue nothinge to set before him: Luke 11:7 and he within shoulde aunswere & saye: trouble me not, the dore is now shut, and my seruauntes are with me in the chamber, I cannot ryse, and geue them to the. Luke 11:8 I saye vnto you, thoughe he woulde not arise and geue him, because he is hys frende: yet because of hys importunitie he wold ryse, and geue him as many as he neded. Luke 11:9 And I saye vnto you: axe and it shalbe geuen you. Seke, and ye shal finde. Knocke, and it shalbe opened vnto you. Luke 11:10 For euery one that axeth, receyueth: and he that seketh, findeth: & to hym that knocketh shall it be opened
assuring that God so will give us good things.
Luke 11:11 Yf þe sonne shall axe bread of any of you that is a father, will he geue him a stone? Or yf he axe fishe, will he for a fishe geue hym a serpente? Luke 11:12 Or yf he axe an egge, wyl he offer hym a scorpion? Luke 11:13 Yf ye then which are euill, can geue good gyftes vnto youre chyldren, howe much more shall the father of heauen geue an holy spirite to them that desyre it of hym?
He casting out a dumb devil, rebuketh the blasphemous Pharisees:
Luke 11:14 And he was castynge oute a deuyll, which was domme. And it folowed when the deuyl was gone out, the domme spake, & the people wondred. Luke 11:15 But some of them sayed: he casteth out deuyls by the power of Belzebub þe chief of the deuyls. Luke 11:16 And other tempted hym, seking of him a signe from heauen. Luke 11:17 But he knew their thoughtes, and sayd vnto them: Euery kingdome deuyded within it selfe, shalbe desolate: and one house shall fall vpon another: Luke 11:18 So yf Satan be deuyded with in him selfe: how shal hys kyngdome endure? Because ye saye that I caste oute deuils by the power of Belzebub Luke 11:19 If I by the power of Belzebub caste oute deuyls: by whom do youre chyldren caste them oute? Therefore shall they be youre iudges. Luke 11:20 But yf I with the finger of God caste oute deuyls, no doubte the kyngedome of God is come. Luke 11:21 When a strong man armed, watched hys house, that he possesseth is in peace. Luke 11:22 But when a stronger then he cometh vpon hym & ouercommeth hym: he taketh from hym his harnes, wherin he trusted and deuydeth hys goodes. Luke 11:23 He that is not with me, is agaynste me. And he that gadereth not with me, scatereth. Luke 11:24 When the vncleane spirite is gone oute of a man, he walketh through waterles places, sekynge reste. And when he fyndeth none, he sayeth, I wyll returne agayne vnto my house whence I came out. Luke 11:25 And when he cometh, he findeth it swepte and garnyshed. Luke 11:26 Then goeth he and taketh to him seuen other spirites worse then hym selfe: and they enter in, and dwell there. And the ende of that man, is worsse then the begynnynge.
Luke 11:27 And it fortuned as he spake those thinges, a certayne woman of the companye lyft vp her voyce, and sayde vnto hym: Happy is the wombe that bare the, and the pappes whiche gaue the sucke.
and sheweth who are blessed:
Luke 11:28 But he sayde: Yea, happye are they that heare the worde of God, and kepe it.
preacheth to the people:
Luke 11:29 When the people were gathered thycke together: he began to saye: Thys is an euyll nacyon: they seke a signe, and there shal no signe be geuen them, but the signe of Ionas the prophet. Luke 11:30 For as Ionas was a signe to the Niniuites, so shall the sonne of man be to thys nacion. Luke 11:31 The quene of the south shall ryse at iudgement with the men of thys generation: & condempne them: for she came from the ende of the world to heare the wysdome of Salomon. And beholde a greater then Salomon is here. Luke 11:32 The men of Niniue shall ryse at the iudgement wt thys generacyon, and condempne them: for they repented at the preaching of Ionas. And beholde a greater then Ionas is here. Luke 11:33 No man lyghteth a candell, & putteth in a pryuy place, neyther vnder a bushell: but on a candelsticke, that they that come in, maye se the lyght. Luke 11:34 The lyght of thy body is the eye Therfor when thyne eye is single: then is al thy body full of lyghte. But yf thyne eye be euyll: then shall thy bodye also be ful of darknes. Luke 11:35 Take hede therfore that the lyght whiche is in the, be not darcknes. Luke 11:36 For yf all thy body shalbe lyght, hauyng no parte darke, then shal all be full of lyght, euen as when a candell doth lyght the with hys brightnes.
and reprehendeth the outward shew of holiness in the Pharisees, scribes, and lawyers.
Luke 11:37 And as he spake, a certayne Pharisey besought hym to done with hym, and he wente in, & sat doune. Luke 11:38 When the Pharisei sawe that he marueyled that he had not fyrste weshed before dyner. Luke 11:39 And the Lorde sayde to hym: Now do ye pharyses make cleane the outsyde of the cup, and of the platter: but your inward parties are full of rauenyng and wickednes. Luke 11:40 Ye foles, dyd not he that made that which is without: make that whiche is within also? Luke 11:41 Neuerthelesse geue almose of that ye haue, and beholde all is cleane to you. Luke 11:42 But wo be to you Pharyses: for the tyth þe mint and rew, and al maner herbes, and passe ouer iudgement and the loue of God. These ought ye to haue lefte the other vndone. Luke 11:43 Wo be to you Pharises, for ye loue the vppermost seates in the synagoges, and gretynges in the markettes. Luke 11:44 Wo be to you scribes and pharyses, hypocrites, for ye are as graues which appere not, and the men that walke ouer them, are not ware of them.
Luke 11:45 Then aunswered one of the lawyers, and sayed vnto hym: Mayster, thus saiyng, thou puttest vs to rebuke also. Luke 11:46 Then he sayde: Wo be to you also ye lawyars, for ye lade men wt burthens greuous to be borne, and ye youre selues touche not the packes with one of your fyngers. Luke 11:47 Wo be to you: ye buylde the sepulchres of of the Prophetes, and youre fathers kylled them, Luke 11:48 truelye ye beare witnes, that ye alowe the deedes of youre fathers: for they kylled them, and ye buylde theyr sepulchres. Luke 11:49 Therfore sayde the wysdome of God: I wyll send them Prophetes and Apostles, and of them they shall slea and persecute, Luke 11:50 that the bloude of all Prophetes which was shede from the beginnynge of the worlde, maye be requyred of thys generacion Luke 11:51 from the bloude of Abell vnto the bloude of Zacharye, whiche peryshed betwene the aulter and the temple. Verelye I saye vnto you, it shalbe requyred of thys nacyon. Luke 11:52 Wo be to you lawyers: for ye haue taken away the keye of knoweledge, ye entred not in your selues, and them that came in, ye forbade. Luke 11:53 When he thus spake vnto them, the lawyers, and the Pharyses began to wexe busye aboute hym, and to stop hys mouthe with manye questyons, Luke 11:54 layinge wayte for hym, and sekynge to catche some thynge of hys mouthe, whereby they myghte accuse hym.
