He will come and destroy the husbandmen, and will give the vineyard to others. 12:10 Have ye not even read this scripture, The stone which they that builded rejected, this has become the corner-stone: 12:11 this is of [the] Lord, and it is wonderful in our eyes? 12:12 And they sought to lay hold of him, and they feared the crowd; for they knew that he had spoken the parable of them. And they left him and went away. 12:13 And they send to him certain of the Pharisees and of the Herodians, that they might catch him in speaking. 12:14 And they come and say to him, Teacher, we know that thou art true, and carest not for any one; for thou regardest not men`s person, but teachest the way of God with truth: Is it lawful to give tribute to Caesar or not? 12:15 Should we give, or should we not give? But he knowing their hypocrisy said unto them, Why tempt ye me? Bring me a denarius that I may see [it]. 12:16 And they brought [it]. And he says to them, Whose [is] this image and superscription? And they said to him, Caesar`s. 12:17 And Jesus answering said to them, Pay what is Caesar`s to Caesar, and what is God`s to God. And they wondered at him. 12:18 And Sadducees come to him, that say there is no resurrection; and they demanded of him saying, 12:19 Teacher, Moses wrote to us that if any one`s brother die, and leave a wife behind, and leave no children, that his brother shall take his wife, and raise up seed to his brother. 12:20 There were seven brethren; and the first took a wife, and dying did not leave seed; 12:21 and the second took her and died, and neither did he leave seed; and the third likewise. 12:22 And the seven [took her and] did not leave seed. Last of all the woman also died. 12:23 In the resurrection, when they shall rise again, of which of them shall she be wife, for the seven had her as wife? 12:24 And Jesus answering said to them, Do not ye therefore err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God? 12:25 For when they rise from among [the] dead they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as angels [who are] in the heavens. 12:26 But concerning the dead that they rise, have ye not read in the book of Moses, in [the section of] the bush, how God spoke to him, saying, I [am] the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? 12:27 He is not the God of [the] dead, but of [the] living. Ye therefore greatly err. 12:28 And one of the scribes who had come up, and had heard them reasoning together, perceiving that he had answered them well, demanded of him, Which is [the] first commandment of all? 12:29 And Jesus answered him, [The] first commandment of all [is], Hear, Israel: the Lord our God is one Lord; 12:30 and thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thine understanding, and with all thy strength. This is [the] first commandment. 12:31 And a second like it [is] this: Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is not another commandment greater than these. 12:32 And the scribe said to him, Right, teacher; thou hast spoken according to [the] truth. For he is one, and there is none other besides him; 12:33 and to love him with all the heart, and with all the intelligence, and with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love one`s neighbour as one`s self, is more than all the burnt-offerings and sacrifices. 12:34 And Jesus, seeing that he had answered intelligently, said to him, Thou art not far from the kingdom of God. And no one dared question him any more. 12:35 And Jesus answering said [as he was] teaching in the temple, How do the scribes say that the Christ is son of David? 12:36 [for] David himself said [speaking] in the Holy Spirit, The Lord said to my Lord, Sit on my right hand until I put thine enemies [as] footstool of thy feet. 12:37 David himself [therefore] calls him Lord, and whence is he his son? And the mass of the people heard him gladly. 12:38 And he said to them in his doctrine, Beware of the scribes, who like to walk about in long robes, and salutations in the marketplaces, 12:39 and first seats in the synagogues, and first places at suppers; 12:40 who devour the houses of widows, and as a pretext make long prayers. These shall receive a severer judgment. 12:41 And Jesus, having sat down opposite the treasury, saw how the crowd was casting money into the treasury; and many rich cast in much. 12:42 And a poor widow came and cast in two mites, which is a farthing. 12:43 And having called his disciples to [him] he said to them, Verily I say unto you, This poor widow has cast in more than all who have cast into the treasury: 12:44 for all have cast in of that which they had in abundance, but she of her destitution has cast in all that she had, the whole of her living.
