Mat 21:23 And when he was come into the temple,
the chief priests and the elders of the people came unto him as he was
teaching, and said, By what authority doest thou these things? and who
gave thee this authority?
Mat 21:24 And Jesus answered and said unto them,
I also will ask you one thing, which if ye tell me, I in like wise will
tell you by what authority I do these things.
Mat 21:25 The baptism of John, whence was it?
from heaven, or of men? And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we
shall say, From heaven; he will say unto us, Why did ye not then believe
Mat 21:26 But if we shall say, Of men; we fear
the people; for all hold John as a prophet.
Mat 21:27 And they answered Jesus, and said, We
cannot tell. And he said unto them, Neither tell I you by what authority I
do these things.
Mat 21:28 But what think ye? A
had two sons; and he came to the first, and said, Son, go work to day in
Mat 21:29 He answered and said, I will not: but
afterward he repented, and went.
Mat 21:30 And he came to the second, and said
likewise. And he answered and said, I
go, sir: and
Mat 21:31 Whether of them twain did the will of
father? They say unto him, The first. Jesus saith unto them, Verily I say
unto you, That the publicans and the harlots go into the kingdom of God
Mat 21:32 For John came unto you in the way of
righteousness, and ye believed him not: but the publicans and the harlots
believed him: and ye, when ye had seen
not afterward, that ye might believe him.
Mat 21:33 Hear another parable: There was a
certain householder, which planted a vineyard, and hedged it round about,
and digged a winepress in it, and built a tower, and let it out to
husbandmen, and went into a far country:
Mat 21:34 And when the time of the fruit drew
near, he sent his servants to the husbandmen, that they might receive the
fruits of it.
Mat 21:35 And the husbandmen took his servants,
and beat one, and killed another, and stoned another.
Mat 21:36 Again, he sent other servants more than
the first: and they did unto them likewise.
Mat 21:37 But last of all he sent unto them his
son, saying, They will reverence my son.
Mat 21:38 But when the husbandmen saw the son,
they said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and
let us seize on his inheritance.
Mat 21:39 And they caught him, and cast
him out of the
vineyard, and slew him.
Mat 21:40 When the lord therefore of the vineyard
cometh, what will he do unto those husbandmen?
Mat 21:41 They say unto him, He will miserably
destroy those wicked men, and will let out
unto other husbandmen, which shall render him the fruits in their seasons.
Mat 21:42 Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never
read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is
become the head of the corner: this is the Lord's doing, and it is
marvellous in our eyes?
Mat 21:43 Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom
of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the
Mat 21:44 And whosoever shall fall on this stone
shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to
Mat 21:45 And when the chief priests and
Pharisees had heard his parables, they perceived that he spake of them.
Mat 21:46 But when they sought to lay hands on
him, they feared the multitude, because they took him for a prophet.
Mat 22:1 And Jesus answered and spake unto
them again by parables, and said,
Mat 22:2 The kingdom of heaven is like unto a
certain king, which made a marriage for his son,
Mat 22:3 And sent forth his servants to call them
that were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come.
Mat 22:4 Again, he sent forth other servants,
saying, Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my
oxen and my
killed, and all things are
ready: come unto the marriage.
Mat 22:5 But they made light of
it, and went
their ways, one to his farm, another to his merchandise:
Mat 22:6 And the remnant took his servants, and
spitefully, and slew them.
Mat 22:7 But when the king heard
was wroth: and he sent forth his armies, and destroyed those murderers,
and burned up their city.
Mat 22:8 Then saith he to his servants, The
wedding is ready, but they which were bidden were not worthy.
Mat 22:9 Go ye therefore into the highways, and
as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage.
Mat 22:10 So those servants went out into the
highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and
good: and the wedding was furnished with guests.
Mat 22:11 And when the king came in to see the
guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment:
Mat 22:12 And he saith unto him, Friend, how
camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless.
Mat 22:13 Then said the king to the servants,
Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast
him into outer
darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Mat 22:14 For many are called, but few
Mar 11:27 And they come again to Jerusalem: and
as he was walking in the temple, there come to him the chief priests, and
the scribes, and the elders,
Mar 11:28 And say unto him, By what authority
doest thou these things? and who gave thee this authority to do these
Mar 11:29 And Jesus answered and said unto them,
I will also ask of you one question, and answer me, and I will tell you by
what authority I do these things.
Mar 11:30 The baptism of John, was
heaven, or of men? answer me.
Mar 11:31 And they reasoned with themselves,
saying, If we shall say, From heaven; he will say, Why then did ye not
Mar 11:32 But if we shall say, Of men; they
feared the people: for all men
counted John, that he was a prophet indeed.
Mar 11:33 And they answered and said unto Jesus,
We cannot tell. And Jesus answering saith unto them, Neither do I tell you
by what authority I do these things.
Mar 12:1 And he began to speak unto them by
parables. A certain
man planted a vineyard, and set an hedge about
it, and digged
a place for
the winefat, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went
into a far country.
Mar 12:2 And at the season he sent to the
husbandmen a servant, that he might receive from the husbandmen of the
fruit of the vineyard.
Mar 12:3 And they caught
him, and beat
him, and sent him
Mar 12:4 And again he sent unto them another
servant; and at him they cast stones, and wounded
him in the
head, and sent him
away shamefully handled.
Mar 12:5 And again he sent another; and him they
killed, and many others; beating some, and killing some.
Mar 12:6 Having yet therefore one son, his
wellbeloved, he sent him also last unto them, saying, They will reverence
Mar 12:7 But those husbandmen said among
themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and the inheritance
shall be ours.
Mar 12:8 And they took him, and killed
him, and cast
of the vineyard.
Mar 12:9 What shall therefore the lord of the
vineyard do? he will come and destroy the husbandmen, and will give the
vineyard unto others.
Mar 12:10 And have ye not read this scripture;
The stone which the builders rejected is become the head of the corner:
Mar 12:11 This was the Lord's doing, and it is
marvellous in our eyes?
Mar 12:12 And they sought to lay hold on him, but
feared the people: for they knew that he had spoken the parable against
them: and they left him, and went their way.
Luk 20:1 And it came to pass,
that on one of
those days, as he taught the people in the temple, and preached the
gospel, the chief priests and the scribes came upon
him with the
Luk 20:2 And spake unto him, saying, Tell us, by
what authority doest thou these things? or who is he that gave thee this
Luk 20:3 And he answered and said unto them, I
will also ask you one thing; and answer me:
Luk 20:4 The baptism of John, was it from heaven,
or of men?
Luk 20:5 And they reasoned with themselves,
saying, If we shall say, From heaven; he will say, Why then believed ye
Luk 20:6 But and if we say, Of men; all the
people will stone us: for they be persuaded that John was a prophet.
Luk 20:7 And they answered, that they could not
tell whence it was.
Luk 20:8 And Jesus said unto them, Neither tell I
you by what authority I do these things.
Luk 20:9 Then began he to speak to the people
this parable; A certain man planted a vineyard, and let it forth to
husbandmen, and went into a far country for a long time.
Luk 20:10 And at the season he sent a servant to
the husbandmen, that they should give him of the fruit of the vineyard:
but the husbandmen beat him, and sent
Luk 20:11 And again he sent another servant: and
they beat him also, and entreated
him shamefully, and sent
Luk 20:12 And again he sent a third: and they
wounded him also, and cast him
Luk 20:13 Then said the lord of the vineyard,
What shall I do? I will send my beloved son: it may be they will reverence
when they see him.
Luk 20:14 But when the husbandmen saw him, they
reasoned among themselves, saying, This is the heir: come, let us kill
him, that the inheritance may be ours.
Luk 20:15 So they cast him out of the vineyard,
and killed him.
What therefore shall the lord of the vineyard do unto them?
Luk 20:16 He shall come and destroy these
husbandmen, and shall give the vineyard to others. And when they heard
they said, God forbid.
Luk 20:17 And he beheld them, and said, What is
this then that is written, The stone which the builders rejected, the same
is become the head of the corner?
Luk 20:18 Whosoever shall fall upon that stone
shall be broken; but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to
Luk 20:19 And the chief priests and the scribes
the same hour sought to lay hands on him; and they feared the people: for
they perceived that he had spoken this parable against them.
