    [1] [Arabic, p. 150] 2717

    2717 Matt. xxi. 14.

    And when Jesus entered the temple, they brought unto him blind and [2] lame:  and he healed them.  2718

    2718 Matt. xxi. 15.

    But when the chief priests and the Pharisees saw the wonders that he did, and the children that were crying in the temple and [3] saying, Praise be to the Son of David:  it distressed them, 2719

    2719 Matt. xxi. 16.

    and they said, Hearest thou not what these say?  Jesus said unto them, Yea:  did ye not read long ago, From [4] the mouths of children and infants thou hast chosen my praise2720

    2720 John xii. 19.

    And the Pharisees said one to another, Behold, do ye not see that nothing availeth us? for lo, the whole world hath followed him.

    [5] 2721

    2721 John xii. 20.

    And there were among them certain Gentiles also, which had come up to worship [6] at the feast2722

    2722 John xii. 21.

    these therefore came to Philip, who was of Bethsaida of Galilee, [7] and asked him, and said unto him, My lord, we wish to see Jesus2723

    2723 John xii. 22.

    And Philip [8] came and told Andrew:  and Andrew and Philip told Jesus2724

    2724 John xii. 23.

    And Jesus answered and said unto them, The hour is come nigh, in which the Son of man is to be glorified.  [9] 2725

    2725 John xii. 24.

    Verily, verily, I say unto you, A grain of wheat, if it fall not and die in the [10] earth, remaineth alone; but if it die, it beareth much fruit.  2726

    2726 John xii. 25.

    He that loveth his life2727

    2727 Or, soul; or, self.

    destroyeth it; and he that hateth his life2728

    2728 Or, soul; or, self.

    in this world shall keep it unto the life eternal.  [11] 2729

    2729 John xii. 26.

    If a man serve me, he will follow me; and where I am, there shall my servant be [12] also:  and whosoever serveth me, the Father will honour him.  2730

    2730 John xii. 27.

    Now is my soul troubled:  [Arabic, p. 151] and what shall I say?  My Father, deliver me from this hour.  But [13] for this cause came I unto this hour.  2731

    2731 John xii. 28.

    My Father, glorify thy name.  And a [14] voice was heard from heaven, I have glorified it, and shall glorify it2732

    2732 John xii. 29.

    And the multitude that were standing heard, and said, This is thunder:  and others said, An [15] angel speaketh to him.  2733

    2733 John xii. 30.

    Jesus answered and said unto them, Not because of me [16] was this voice, but because of you.  2734

    2734 John xii. 31.

    Now is the judgement of this world; and the [17] prince of this world shall now be cast forth.  2735

    2735 John xii. 32.

    And I, when I am lifted up from the [18] earth, shall draw every man unto me.  2736

    2736 John xii. 33.

    This he said, that he might shew by what [19] manner of death he should die2737

    2737 John xii. 34.

    The multitudes said unto him, We have heard out of the law that the Messiah abideth for ever:  how then sayest thou, that the Son of [20] man is to be lifted up? who is this, the Son of man?  2738

    2738 John xii. 35.

    Jesus said unto them, Another little while is the light with you.  Walk so long as ye have light, lest the darkness overtake you; for he that walketh in the darkness knoweth not whither he goeth.  [21] 2739

    2739 John xii. 36.

    So long as ye have light, believe the light, that ye may be the children of the light.

    [22] 2740

    2740 Luke xvii. 20.

    And when certain of the Pharisees asked of Jesus, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered and said unto them, The kingdom of God cometh not [23] with expectation:  2741

    2741 Luke xvii. 21.

    neither shall they say, Lo, it is here! nor, Lo, it is there! for the kingdom of God is within you.

    [24] 2742

    2742 Luke xxi. 37.

    And in the daytime he was teaching in the temple; and at night he used to go [25] out, and pass the night in the mount called the mount of Olives.  2743

    2743 Luke xxi. 38.

    And all the people came2744

    2744 i.e., used to come.

    to him in the morning in the temple, to hear his word.

    [26, 27] 2745

    2745 Matt. xxiii. 1.

    Then spake Jesus unto the multitudes and his disciples, and said unto them, 2746

    2746 Matt. xxiii. 2.

    On [28] [Arabic, p. 152] the seat of Moses are seated the scribes and Pharisees2747

    2747 Matt. xxiii. 3.

    everything that they say unto you now to keep, keep and do:  but according to their deeds [29] do ye not; for they say, and do not.  2748

    2748 Matt. xxiii. 4.

    And they bind heavy burdens, and lay them on the shoulders of the people; while they with one of their fingers will not come [30, 31] near2749

    2749 Or, touch.

    them.  2750

    2750 Matt. xxiii. 5a.

    But all their deeds they do to make a shew before men.  2751

    2751 Mark xii. 37b.

    And all the multitude were hearing that with pleasure.

    [32] 2752

    2752 Mark xii. 38.

    And in the course of his teaching he said unto them, Guard yourselves from the [33] scribes, who desire to walk in robes, 2753

    2753 Mark xii. 39.

    and love salutation in the marketplaces, and sitting in the highest places of the synagogues, and at feasts in the highest parts of [34] the rooms2754

    2754 Matt. xxiii. 5b.

    and they broaden their amulets, and lengthen the cords of their cloaks, [35] 2755

    2755 Matt. xxiii. 7b.

    and love that they should be called by men, My master, 2756

    2756 Mark xii. 40.

    and devour widowshouses, because2757

    2757 The Syriac word means on the pretext of as well as because of (cf. § 50, 11, note).

    of their prolonging their prayers; these then shall receive greater judgement.  [36] 2758

    2758 Matt. xxiii. 8.

    But ye, be ye not called masters:2759

    2759 This word is not spelled in the ordinary way.  Doubtless we should supply two diacritical points and read, with the Syriac versions, My master.

      for your master is one; all ye are brethren.  [37] 2760

    2760 Matt. xxiii. 9.

    Call not then to yourselves any one2761

    2761 cf. Peshitta.

    father on earth:  for your Father is one, who is [38] in heaven2762

    2762 Matt. xxiii. 10.

    And be not called directors:  for your director is one, even the Messiah.  [39, 40] 2763

    2763 Matt. xxiii. 11.

    He that is great among you shall be unto you a minister2764

    2764 Matt. xxiii. 12.

    Whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and whosoever shall abase himself shall be exalted.

    [41] 2765

    2765 Luke xi. 43.

    Woe unto you, Pharisees! because ye love the highest places in the synagogues, and salutation in the marketplaces.

    [42] 2766

    2766 Matt. xxiii. 14.

    Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye devour widowshouses, because2767

    2767 Syriac, same as in § 40, 35; Arabic different.

    of your prolonging your prayers:  for this reason then ye shall receive greater judgement.

    [43] 2768

    2768 Matt. xxiii. 13a.

    Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye have shut the kingdom of God before men.

    [44] [Arabic, p. 153] 2769

    2769 Luke xi. 52a.

    Woe unto you that know the law! for ye concealed the keys of knowledge2770

    2770 Matt. xxiii. 13b.

    ye enter not, and those that are entering ye suffer not to enter.

    [45] 2771

    2771 Matt. xxiii. 15.

    Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because2772

    2772 Adopting the reading of Borg. ms. (cf. next verse).

    ye compass land and sea to draw2773

    2773 Perhaps this reading is due to the easy confusion of d and r in Syriac; but it might also conceivably be a corruption of the Arabic word in the next clause.  It occurs also in the text of Ibn-at-Tayyib’s Commentary.

    one proselyte; and when he is become so, ye make him a son of hell twice as much2774

    2774 Doubtless the Arabic word should be read as a monosyllable, as in Ibn-at-Tayyib’s Commentary.

    as yourselves.

    [46] 2775

    2775 Matt. xxiii. 16.

    Woe unto you, ye blind guides! because ye say, Whosoever sweareth by the temple, it is nothing; but whosoever sweareth by the gold that is in the temple, [47] shall be condemned.2776

    2776 See § 10, 13.


    2777 Matt. xxiii. 17.

    Ye blind foolish ones:  which is greater, the gold, or the [48] temple which sanctifieth the gold2778

    2778 Matt. xxiii. 18.

    And, Whosoever sweareth by the altar, it is nothing; but whosoever sweareth by the offering that is upon it, shall be condemned.2779

    2779 See § 10, 13.

      [49] 2780

    2780 Matt. xxiii. 19.

    Ye blind foolish ones:  which is greater, the offering, or the altar which sanctifieth [50] the offering?  2781

    2781 Matt. xxiii. 20.

    Whosoever then sweareth by the altar, hath sworn by it, and by all [51] that is upon it.  2782

    2782 Matt. xxiii. 21.

    And whosoever sweareth by the temple, hath sworn by it, and by [52] him that is dwelling in it.  2783

    2783 Matt. xxiii. 22.

    And whosoever sweareth by heaven, hath sworn by the throne of God, and by him that sitteth upon it.

    [53] 2784

    2784 Matt. xxiii. 23.

    Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye tithe mint and rue and dill and cummin and all herbs, and ye leave the important matters of the law, judgement, and mercy, and faith, and the love of God:  this ought ye to do, and [54] not to leave that undone2785

    2785 Matt. xxiii. 24.

    Ye blind guides, which strain out a gnat, and swallow2786

    2786 The Arabic word as printed gives no suitable sense.  Either the last radical has been omitted, or the last two radicals have exchanged places.


    [55] 2787

    2787 Matt. xxiii. 25.

    Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye cleanse the outside of the cup and of the platter, while the inside of them is full of injustice and wrong.  [56] 2788

    2788 Matt. xxiii. 26.

    Ye blind Pharisees, cleanse first the inside of the cup and of the platter, then shall the outside of them be cleansed.

    [57] [Arabic, p. 154] 2789

    2789 Matt. xxiii. 27.

    Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye resemble whited sepulchres, which appear2790

    2790 Lit. are seen.

    from the outside beautiful, but within [58] full of the bones of the dead, and all uncleanness.  2791

    2791 Matt. xxiii. 28.

    So ye also from without appear unto men like the righteous, but within ye are full of wrong and hypocrisy.

    [59] 2792

    2792 Luke xi. 45.

    One of the scribes answered and said unto him, Teacher, in this saying of thine [60] thou art casting a slur on us.  2793

    2793 Luke xi. 46.

    He said, And to you also, ye scribes, woe! for ye lade men with heavy burdens, and ye with one of your fingers come not near2794

    2794 Or, touch.

    those burdens.

    [61] 2795

    2795 Matt. xxiii. 29a; Luke xi. 47b; Matt. xxiii. 29b.

    Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye build the tombs of the prophets, which your fathers killed, and adorn the burying-places of the righteous, [62] and say, 2796

    2796 Matt. xxiii. 30.

    If we had been in the days of our fathers, we should not have been partakers [63] with them in the blood of the prophets2797

    2797 Matt. xxiii. 31.

    Wherefore, behold, ye witness against [64] yourselves, that ye are the children of those that slew the prophets2798

    2798 Matt. xxiii. 32.

    And ye also, [65] ye fill up the measure2799

    2799 Lit. boundary or limit.

    of your fathers.  2800

    2800 Matt. xxiii. 33.

    Ye serpents, ye children of vipers, where shall ye flee from the judgement of Gehenna?
