lay not treasures upon earth

When he was come down from the mountain, great  multitudes followed him.

And behold there came a leper and worshipped him, saying. Lord, if thou wilt , thou canst make me clean.

And Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed.

And Jesus saith unto him, See thou tell no man; but go thy way, shew thyself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them.

And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him a centurion, beseeching him, And sying, Lord, my servant lieth at hime sick  of the palsy, grievously tormented. And Jesus saithunto him, I wil lcome and heal him. 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. for I am a man uder authority, 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.

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.

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.

But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way;; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour.

(continuting from chapter matthew eight and verse fourteen) And when Jesus was come into Peter’s house, he saw his wife’s mother laid,  sick of a fever. And he touched her hand, and the fever left her: and she arose, and ministered unto them. When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with hi9s word, and healed all that were sick:

That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.

Now when Jesus saw great multitudes about him, he gave commandment to depart unto the other side. And a certain scribe came, and said unto him, Master, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest. And Jesus saith unto him, The foxes have holes,a nd the birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head. And another of his disciples said unto hiim, Lord, suffer me to go and bury my father. But lJesus said unto him Follow me; and let the dead bury their dead. And when he was entered into a ship, his disciples followed him. And , behold, there arose a g reat tempest in the sea, insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves: but he was asleep.

And his disciples came to him,  awoke him, saying, Lord, save us: we perish.

And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a gerat calm.

But the men marvelled, saying, What manner of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him!

And when he was come to the other side into the country of the Gergesenes there met him two possessed with devils, coming out of the tombs, exceeding fierce, so that no man might pass by that way.
