VER. 21.

Εν αὐτῇ τῇ ὥρᾳ ἀγαλλιάσατο τῷ πνεύ ματι ὁ Ἰησοῦς, καὶ εἶπεν· Ἐξομολογοῦμαι σοι, Πάτερ, Κύριε τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καὶ τῆς γῆς, ὅτι ἀπέκρυψας ταῦτα ἀπὸ σοφῶν καὶ συνετῶν, καὶ ἀπεκάλυψας αὐτὰ νηπίοις· καὶ ὁ Πατὴρ, ὅτι οὕτω ςἐγένετο εὐδοκία ἔμπροσ θέν σου.

In that hour Jesus a rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes: even

so, Father; for so it seemed good in thy sight.

[At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes. Even so, Father: for so it | seemed good in thy sight, Matt. xi. 25, 26.]

VER. 22. Πάντα παρεδόθη μοι ὑπὸ τοῦ πατρός μου· καὶ οὐδεὶς γινώσκει τίς ἐστιν ὁ υἱὸς, εἰ μὴ ὁ πατήρ· καὶ τίς ἐστιν ὁ πατὴρ, εἰ μὴ ὁ υἱὸς, καὶ ᾧ ἐὰν βούληται ὁ υἱὸς ἀποκαλύψαι.

a*All things are delivered to me of my Father: and no man knoweth who the

Son is, but the Father; and who the Father is, but the Son, and he to whom the

Son will reveal him.

* Many ancient copies add, And turning to his disciples, he said,

[All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him, Matt. xi. 27.]

and have not heard them.

VER. 25.

Καὶ ἰδοὺ, νομικός τις ἀνέστη, ἐκπειρά ζων αὐτὸν, καὶ λέγων· Διδάσκαλε, τί ποίησας ζωὴν αἰώνιον κληρονομήσω ;

a And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life? a See on Matt. xix. ver. 16.

VER. 26.

Ὁ δὲ εἶπε πρὸς αὐτὸν· Ἐν τῷ νόμῳ τί γέγραπται; πῶς ἀναγινώσκεις ;

He said unto him, a What is written in the law? how readest thou ?

if they speak not according to this
a To the law and to the testimony:
word, it is because there is no light in
them, Isa. viii. 20. Now we know,
that what things soever the law saith,
it saith to them who are under the
law; that every mouth may be stop-
ped, and all the world may become
guilty before God, Rom. iii. 19. For
Moses describeth the righteousness
which is of the law, That the man
which doeth those things shall live by
them, x. 5. And the law is not of
faith : but, The man that doeth them
shall live in them, Gal. iii. 12.

VER. 27.

Ὁ δὲ ἀποκριθεὶς, εἶπεν· ̓Αγαπήσεις Κύριον τὸν Θεόν σου ἐξ ὅλης τῆς καρδίας σου, καὶ ἐξ ὅλης τῆς ψυχῆς σου, καὶ ἐξ ὅλης τῆς ἰσχύος σου, καὶ ἐξ ὅλης τῆς διανοίας σου καὶ τὸν πλησίον σου ὡς σεαυτόν.

of the children of Israel in the tabernacle of the congregation, and to make an atonement for the children of Israel:

that there be no plague among the children of Israel, when the children of Israel come nigh unto the sanctuary. And Moses, and Aaron, and all the congregation of the children of Israel, did to the Levites according unto all that the LORD commanded Moses concerning the Levites, so did the children of Israel unto them. And the Levites were purified, and they washed their clothes; and Aaron of fered them as an offering before the LORD; and Aaron made an atonement for them to cleanse them. And after that went the Levites in to do their service in the tabernacle of the congregation before Aaron, and before his sons: as the LORD had commanded Moses concerning the Levites, so did they unto them. And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, This is it that belongeth unto the Levites: from twenty and fve years old and upward they shall go in to wait upon the service of the tabernacle of the congregation: And from the age of fifty years they shall cease waiting upon the service thereof, and shall serve no more: But shall minister with their brethren in the tabernacle of the congregation, to keep the charge, and shall do no ser

vice. Thus shalt thou do unto the Levites touching their charge, Numb. viii, 18-26.

b Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men, Matt. xii. 31. Go ye, therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, xxviii. 19. For David himself said by the Holy Ghost, The LORD said to my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool, Mark xii. 36. But whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye for it is not ye that speak, but the Holy Ghost, xiii. 11. And it was revealed unto him by the Holy Ghost, that he should not see death before he had seen the Lord's Christ, Luke ii. 26. And the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove upon him, iii. 22. For the Holy Ghost shall teach you in the same hour what ye ought to say, xii. 12. But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you, John xiv. 26. Until the day in which he was taken up, after that he through the Holy Ghost had given

A. D. 33. commandments unto the apostles whom he had chosen, Acts i. 2. But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price

of the land? Thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God, v. 3, 4. And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey him, v. 32. Ye stiffnecked, and uncircumcised in heart and ears, ye do always resist the Holy Ghost: as your fathers did, so do ye, vii. 11. As they ministered to the Lord, and fasted, the Holy Ghost said, Separate me Barnabas and Saul, for the work whereunto I have called them, xiii. 2. For it seemed good to the Holy Ghost, and to us, to lay upon you no greater burden than these necessary things, xv. 28. Now when they had gone throughout Phrygia and the region of Galatia, and were forbidden of the Holy Ghost to preach the word in Asia, After they were come to Mysia, they assayed to go into Bithynia: but the Spirit suffered them not, xvi. 6, 7. Save that the Holy Ghost witnesseth in every city, saying that bonds and afflictions abide me, xx. 23. Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, 28. And when he was come unto us, he took Paul's girdle, and bound his own hands and feet, and said, Thus saith the Holy Ghost, So shall the Jews at Jerusalem bind the man that owneth this girdle, and shall deliver him into the hands of the Gentiles, xxi. 11. Well spake the Holy Ghost by Esaias the prophet, xxviii. 25. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual, 1 Cor. ii. 13. In whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, Eph. i. 13. And grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption, iv. 30. Whereof the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before, Heb. x. 15. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost, 2 Pet. i. 21.
