1 Meanwhile, when thousands of people gathered, so that they crowded each other, He began to speak first to His disciples: beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy.
2 There is nothing secret that would not be revealed, and nothing secret that would not be known.
3 Therefore, what you said in the dark will be heard in the light; and what was said in the ear inside the house, it will be proclaimed on the roofs.
4 I tell you, my friends: do not be afraid of those who kill the body and then who can do nothing more;
5 but I will tell you whom to fear: fear the one who, upon killing, can plunge into hell: she, I tell you, fear that.
6 Are five small birds sold for two assariums? and not one of them is forgotten by God.
7 And your head hair is all numbered. So do not be afraid: you are more expensive than many small birds.
eight I tell you: everyone who confesses me before men, and the Son of man confesses before the angels of God;
nine but whoever denies me before men will be rejected before the angels of God.
ten And to everyone who speaks a word on the Son of Man, he will be forgiven; and he who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven.
eleven When they bring you to the synagogues, to the authorities and authorities, do not care how or what to answer, or what to say,
12 for the Holy Spirit will teach you at that hour what is to speak.

13 One of the people said to him: Teacher! tell my brother to share the inheritance with me.
fourteen But he said to the man to him, Who set me to judge or divide you?
fifteen He said to them: look, beware of covetousness, for a person’s life does not depend on the abundance of his estate.
16 And he told them a parable: one rich man had a good harvest in the field;
17 and he reasoned with himself: what shall I do? nowhere can I collect my fruits?
18 And he said: this is what I will do: I will break my granaries and build large ones, and gather all my bread and all my good there,
19 and I will say to my soul: soul! you have a lot of good for many years: rest, eat, drink, have fun.
20 But God said to him: crazy! tonight your soul will be taken from you; who will get what you have prepared?
21 So [happens to the one], who collects treasures for himself, and does not get rich in God.

22 And he said unto his disciples: Therefore I say unto you, - Do not care for your soul, that which you have, nor for the body, what to dress:
23 the soul is more than food, and the body is more than clothing.
24 Look at the ravens: they do not sow, they do not reap; they have neither stores nor granaries, and God nourishes them; how much better are you than birds?
25 And how many of you, caring, can add growth to yourself even by one elbow?
26 So, if you can’t do the slightest, what do you care about?
27 Look at the lilies, how they grow: do not work, do not spin; but I tell you that Solomon in all his glory did not dress like any of them.
28 If, however, God puts the grass on the field, which is today, and tomorrow will be thrown into the oven, then Kolmy more than you, little faith!
29th So, do not look for what you eat or what to drink, and do not worry,
thirty because all this is sought by the people of this world; your Father knows that you have a need;
31 seek the Kingdom of God most of all, and all of this will be added to you.
32 Do not be afraid, a small herd! for your Father was pleased to give you the kingdom.
33 Sell ​​your possessions and give alms. Prepare your vaginas that are not dilapidated, a treasure that is not scanty in heaven, where the thief does not approach and where the moth does not eat,
34 for where your treasure is, there your heart will be.
35 May your loins be girded and the lamps burning.
36 And you will be like people who are waiting for the return of their master from marriage, so that when he comes and knocks, immediately open him.
37 Blessed are those slaves whom the master, having come, will find awake; verily I say unto you, he gird himself, and put them down, and, coming up, will serve them.
38 And if he comes to the second guard, and comes to the third guard, and finds them like that, then blessed are those slaves.
39 You know that if the owner of the house knew what time the thief would come, he would be awake and would not allow his house to be undermined.
40 Be ready, too, for, at what time you do not think, the Son of Man will come.

41 Then Peter said to him: Lord! Do you speak this parable to us, or to all?
42 The Lord said: Who is the faithful and prudent housekeeper whom the master set over his servants to give them a measure of bread in due time?
43 Blessed is the servant whom his master, having come, will find doing so.
44 Verily I say unto you, that he shall put him over all his possessions.
45 If the servant says in his heart: My lord will not come soon, and begin to beat the servants and maidservants, eat and drink and get drunk, -
46 then the lord of the slave will come on the day on which he does not expect, and on the hour in which he does not think, and will cut him up, and subject him to the same fate as the infidels.
47 But a slave who knew the will of his master, and was not ready, and did not do according to his will, there will be a lot of bits;
48 but who did not know, and did punishment worthy, the bit will be less. And from everyone to whom much has been given, much will be required, and to whom much has been entrusted, they will be more exacted.
49 I came to bring fire to the earth, and as I wish it would already be kindled!
50 I must be baptized by baptism; and how I languish until this is done!
51 Do you think that I have come to give peace to the earth? No, I tell you, but separation;
52 for henceforth, five in one house will be divided, three against two, and two against three:
53 the father will be against the son, and the son against the father; mother versus daughter, and daughter versus mother; the mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law, and the daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law.

54 He said to the people: when you see a cloud rising from the west, immediately say: it will rain, and it happens;
55 and when the south wind blows, say: there will be heat, and it happens.
56 Hypocrites! know how to recognize the face of earth and sky, but how can you not recognize this time?
57 Why don't you judge by yourself what it should be?
58 When you go with your rival to the authorities, then try to free yourself from him on the road so that he does not lead you to the judge, and the judge does not give you to the torturer, and the torturer does not plunge you into prison.
59 I tell you: you won’t get out of there until you give the last half.
