Love

 And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord:

And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.

  And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.

 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

 We love him, because he first loved us.

 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

 This is the first and great commandment.

 Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children;

 And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.

 Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.

 For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead:

 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.

 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.

 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.

Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,

 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;

 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;

 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.

 Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.

 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.

 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.

 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.

  For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.

 And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.

 

 

 So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs.

 He saith to him again the second time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep.

 He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep.

 As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God.

 My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God?

 My tears have been my meat day and night, while they continually say unto me, Where is thy God?

 And the disciples of John and of the Pharisees used to fast: and they come and say unto him, Why do the disciples of John and of the Pharisees fast, but thy disciples fast not?

 And Jesus said unto them, Can the children of the bridechamber fast, while the bridegroom is with them? as long as they have the bridegroom with them, they cannot fast.

 But the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken away from them, and then shall they fast in those days.

 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.

 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.

 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;

 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,

 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.

 So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.

 For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:

 For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.

For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.

 This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.

 Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.

 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.

If ye love me, keep my commandments.

 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;

Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.

 Again, a new commandment I write unto you, which thing is true in him and in you: because the darkness is past, and the true light now shineth.

He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now.

 He that loveth his brother abideth in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him.

 But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes.

 I write unto you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for his name's sake.

 I write unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I write unto you, young men, because ye have overcome the wicked one. I write unto you, little children, because ye have known the Father.

I have written unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I have written unto you, young men, because ye are strong, and the word of God abideth in you, and ye have overcome the wicked one.

 He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.

 And Jesus entered and passed through Jericho.

 And, behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus, which was the chief among the publicans, and he was rich.

 And he sought to see Jesus who he was; and could not for the press, because he was little of stature.

And he ran before, and climbed up into a sycomore tree to see him: for he was to pass that way.

 And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up, and saw him, and said unto him, Zacchaeus, make haste, and come down; for to day I must abide at thy house.

And he made haste, and came down, and received him joyfully.

 And when they saw it, they all murmured, saying, That he was gone to be guest with a man that is a sinner.

 And Zacchaeus stood, and said unto the Lord: Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor; and if I have taken any thing from any man by false accusation, I restore him fourfold.

And Jesus said unto him, This day is salvation come to this house, forsomuch as he also is a son of Abraham.

 For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.

 And Simon Peter stood and warmed himself. They said therefore unto him, Art not thou also one of his disciples? He denied it, and said, I am not.

 One of the servants of the high priest, being his kinsman whose ear Peter cut off, saith, Did not I see thee in the garden with him?

 Peter then denied again: and immediately the cock crew.

 So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs.

 He saith to him again the second time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep.

 He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep.

John 21:18 Verily, verily, I say unto thee, When thou wast young, thou girdest thyself, and walkedst whither thou wouldest: but when thou shalt be old, thou shalt stretch forth thy hands, and another shall gird thee, and carry thee whither thou wouldest not.

 This spake he, signifying by what death he should glorify God. And when he had spoken this, he saith unto him, Follow me.

But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came.

 The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the Lord. But he said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe.

 And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you.

 Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing.

 And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God.

 And it came to pass, when he was in a certain city, behold a man full of leprosy: who seeing Jesus fell on his face, and besought him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.

 And he put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will: be thou clean. And immediately the leprosy departed from him.

And he charged him to tell no man: but go, and shew thyself to the priest, and offer for thy cleansing, according as Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them.

 But so much the more went there a fame abroad of him: and great multitudes came together to hear, and to be healed by him of their infirmities.

 And he withdrew himself into the wilderness, and prayed.

 And it came to pass on a certain day, as he was teaching, that there were Pharisees and doctors of the law sitting by, which were come out of every town of Galilee, and Judaea, and Jerusalem: and the power of the Lord was present to heal them.

 

 And he must needs go through Samaria.

 Then cometh he to a city of Samaria, which is called Sychar, near to the parcel of ground that Jacob gave to his son Joseph.

 Now Jacob's well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied with his journey, sat thus on the well: and it was about the sixth hour.

 There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith unto her, Give me to drink.

 (For his disciples were gone away unto the city to buy meat.)

 Then saith the woman of Samaria unto him, How is it that thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria? for the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans.

 Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.

 The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that living water?

Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle?

 Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again:

But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.

 The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw.

 Jesus saith unto her, Go, call thy husband, and come hither.

 The woman answered and said, I have no husband. Jesus said unto her, Thou hast well said, I have no husband:

 For thou hast had five husbands; and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband: in that saidst thou truly.

 The woman saith unto him, Sir, I perceive that thou art a prophet.

 Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; and ye say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship.

 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father.

 Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews.

 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.

 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

 The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things.

 Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am he.

And upon this came his disciples, and marvelled that he talked with the woman: yet no man said, What seekest thou? or, Why talkest thou with her?

 The woman then left her waterpot, and went her way into the city, and saith to the men,

 Come, see a man, which told me all things that ever I did: is not this the Christ?

 Then they went out of the city, and came unto him.

 In the mean while his disciples prayed him, saying, Master, eat.

But he said unto them, I have meat to eat that ye know not of.

 Therefore said the disciples one to another, Hath any man brought him ought to eat?

 Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work.

 Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.

 And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together.

 And herein is that saying true, One soweth, and another reapeth.

 I sent you to reap that whereon ye bestowed no labour: other men laboured, and ye are entered into their labours.

 And many of the Samaritans of that city believed on him for the saying of the woman, which testified, He told me all that ever I did.

 So when the Samaritans were come unto him, they besought him that he would tarry with them: and he abode there two days.

 And many more believed because of his own word;

 And said unto the woman, Now we believe, not because of thy saying: for we have heard him ourselves, and know that this is indeed the Christ, the Saviour of the world.

 Now a certain man was sick, named Lazarus, of Bethany, the town of Mary and her sister Martha.

 (It was that Mary which anointed the Lord with ointment, and wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick.)

 Therefore his sisters sent unto him, saying, Lord, behold, he whom thou lovest is sick.

 When Jesus heard that, he said, This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby.

 Now Jesus loved Martha, and her sister, and Lazarus.

 When he had heard therefore that he was sick, he abode two days still in the same place where he was.

 Then after that saith he to his disciples, Let us go into Judaea again.

 His disciples say unto him, Master, the Jews of late sought to stone thee; and goest thou thither again?

 Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any man walk in the day, he stumbleth not, because he seeth the light of this world.

 But if a man walk in the night, he stumbleth, because there is no light in him.

 These things said he: and after that he saith unto them, Our friend Lazarus sleepeth; but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep.

 Then said his disciples, Lord, if he sleep, he shall do well.

 Howbeit Jesus spake of his death: but they thought that he had spoken of taking of rest in sleep.

 Then said Jesus unto them plainly, Lazarus is dead.

 And I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, to the intent ye may believe; nevertheless let us go unto him.

 Then said Thomas, which is called Didymus, unto his fellowdisciples, Let us also go, that we may die with him.

 Then when Jesus came, he found that he had lain in the grave four days already.

 Now Bethany was nigh unto Jerusalem, about fifteen furlongs off:

 And many of the Jews came to Martha and Mary, to comfort them concerning their brother.

 Then Martha, as soon as she heard that Jesus was coming, went and met him: but Mary sat still in the house.

 Then said Martha unto Jesus, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.

 But I know, that even now, whatsoever thou wilt ask of God, God will give it thee.

 Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again.

 Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day.

 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:

 And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?

 She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world.

 And when she had so said, she went her way, and called Mary her sister secretly, saying, The Master is come, and calleth for thee.

 As soon as she heard that, she arose quickly, and came unto him.

 Now Jesus was not yet come into the town, but was in that place where Martha met him.

 The Jews then which were with her in the house, and comforted her, when they saw Mary, that she rose up hastily and went out, followed her, saying, She goeth unto the grave to weep there.

 Then when Mary was come where Jesus was, and saw him, she fell down at his feet, saying unto him, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.

 And said, Where have ye laid him? They said unto him, Lord, come and see.

 Jesus wept.

 Then said the Jews, Behold how he loved him!

 And some of them said, Could not this man, which opened the eyes of the blind, have caused that even this man should not have died?

 Jesus therefore again groaning in himself cometh to the grave. It was a cave, and a stone lay upon it.

 Jesus said, Take ye away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith unto him, Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he hath been dead four days.

Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?

 Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me.

 And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me.

 And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth.

And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go.

 And the Lord make you to increase and abound in love one toward another, and toward all men, even as we do toward you:

To the end he may stablish your hearts unblameable in holiness before God, even our Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all his saints.

 For whether we be beside ourselves, it is to God: or whether we be sober, it is for your cause.

 For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead:

 And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again.
