1 And it came to be on a Shabbath that He went through grainfields, and His talmidim were plucking the heads of grain and were eating, rubbing them in the hands.
2 And some of the Pharisees said to them, “Why are you doing what is not right to do on the Shabbath?”
3 And 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤔𐤏 answering them, said, “Have you not read what Dawiḏ did when he was hungry, he and those who were with him,
4 how he went into the House of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, took and ate the showbread, and also gave some to those with him, which is not right for any but the kohenim to eat?”
5 And He said to them, “The Bĕn of Aḏam is Aḏon of the Shabbath.”
6 And it also came to be on another Shabbath, that He entered into the congregation and taught, and there was a man whose right hand was withered.
7 And the scribes and Pharisees were watching Him closely, whether He would heal on the Shabbath, for them to find an accusation against Him.
8 And He knew their thoughts, and said to the man who had the withered hand, “Rise and stand in the midst.” And he rose up and stood.
9 Then 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤔𐤏 said to them, “I ask you, is it right to do good on the Shabbath, or to do evil, to save life or to destroy it?”
10 And looking around at them all, He said to the man, “Stretch out your hand.” And he did so, and his hand was restored sound as the other.
11 But they were filled with folly, and were speaking with one another what they should do to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤔𐤏.
12 And in those days it came to be that He went out to the mountain to pray, and was spending the night in prayer to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.
13 And when it became day, He called near His talmidim and chose from them twelve, whom He also named emissaries:
14 Shim’on whom He also named Kĕpha, and his brother Andri, Ya’aqoḇ and Yoḥanan, Philippos, and Bartholomi,
15 Mattithyahu and T’oma, Ya’aqoḇ of Ḥĕleph and Shim’on, the one called the Enthusiast,
16 Yahuḏah of Ya’aqoḇ and Yahuḏah from Qeriyoth who also became the betrayer.
17 And coming down with them He stood on a level place with a crowd of His talmidim and a great number of people from all Yahuḏah and Yerushalayim, and from the coast country of Tsor and Tsiḏon, who came to hear Him, and to be healed of their diseases,
18 and those who were troubled with unclean spirits – and they were healed.
19 And all the crowd were seeking to touch Him, for power went out from Him, and healing them all.
20 And He, lifting up His eyes toward His talmidim, said, “Baruḵ are the poor, because yours is the reign of Elohim.
21 “Baruḵ are you who hunger now, because you shall be satisfied. Baruḵ are you who weep now, because you shall laugh.
22 “Baruḵ are you when men shall hate you, and when they shall cut you off, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as wicked, for the sake of the Bĕn of Aḏam.
23 “Rejoice in that day and leap for joy, for look, your reward is great in the shamayim, for that is how their fathers treated the neḇi’im.
24 “But woe to you who are rich, because you are receiving your comfort.
25 “Woe to you who have been filled, because you shall hunger. Woe to you who are laughing now, because you shall mourn and weep.
26 “Woe to you when all men speak well of you, for thus their fathers did to the false prophets.
27 “But I say to you who are hearing: Love your enemies, do good to those hating you.
28 “Baraḵ those cursing you, and pray for those insulting you.
29 “And to him who hits you on the one cheek, offer the other also. And from him who takes away your outer garment, do not withhold the inner garment either.
30 “And give to everyone who asks of you. And from him who takes away what is yours do not ask it back.
31 “And as you desire men should do to you, you also do to them in the same way.
32 “And if you love those loving you, what favour have you? For sinners, too, love those loving them.
33 “And if you do good to those doing good to you, what favour have you? For even sinners do the same.
34 “And if you lend to whom you expect to receive back, what favour have you? For even sinners lend to sinners to receive as much back.
35 “Rather, love your enemies, and do good, and lend, expecting naught in return. And your reward shall be great, and you shall be sons of the Most High. Because He is kind to the thankless and wicked ones.
36 “Therefore be compassionate, as your Father also is compassionate.
37 “And do not judge, and you shall not be judged at all. Condemn not, and you shall not be condemned at all. Forgive, and you shall be forgiven.
38 “Give, and it shall be given to you. A good measure, pressed down and shaken together and running over shall be put into your lap. For with the same measure with which you measure, it shall be measured back to you.”
39 And He spoke a parable to them, “Is a blind able to lead a blind? Shall they not both fall into a pit?
40 “A talmid is not above his teacher, but everyone perfected shall be like his teacher.
41 “And why do you see the splinter in your brother’s eye, but are not aware of the plank in your own eye?
42 “Or how are you able to say to your brother, ‘Brother, let me take out the splinter that is in your eye,’ not seeing the plank in your own eye? Hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you shall see clearly to take out the splinter that is in your brother’s eye.
43 “For a good tree does not yield rotten fruit, nor does a rotten tree yield good fruit.
44 “For each tree is known by its own fruit. For they do not gather figs from thorns, nor do they gather grapes from a bramble bush.
45 “The good man brings forth what is good out of the good treasure of his heart, and the wicked man brings forth what is wicked out of the wicked treasure of his heart. For out of the overflow of the heart his mouth speaks.
46 “But why do you call Me ‘Aḏonai, Aḏonai,’ and do not do what I say?
47 “Everyone who is coming to Me, and is hearing My Words and is doing them, I shall show you whom he is like:
48 “He is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid a foundation on the rock. And when a flood came, the stream burst against that house, but was unable to shake it, for it was founded on the rock.
49 “But the one hearing and not doing, is like a man who built a house on the earth without a foundation, against which the stream burst, and immediately it fell. And the ruin of that house was great.”
