21 And his fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought unto him all sick people that were taken with divers diseases and torments, and those which ware possessed with devils, and those which were lunatic, and those that had the palsy; and he healed them.

TAKE heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven.
2 Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and inthestreets,thatthey may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. 3 But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth:
4 That thine alms may be in Becret; and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly. 5 T And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets.that they may be seen of men.

23 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the liics of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: 29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory, was not arrayed like one of these.

23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:

27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house: and it fell and great was the fall of it.
CHAPTER VIII. Sundry miracles of Christ. WHEN he was come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed him. 2 And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, say-. ing. Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.

5 T And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him a centurion, beseeching him,
6 And saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented.
7 And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him.
8 The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only. and my servant shall be healed. 9 For I am a man under ea thority, having soldiers under me: and I say to this man, Go and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it.
10 When Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.
11 And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham. and Isaac, and Jacob,in the kingdom of heaven: 12 But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weep ing and gnashing of teeth. 13 And Jesus said unto the cen
