they said, John Baptist hath sent us unto thee, saying, Art thou he who should come; or look we for another? And in the same hour he cured many of infirmities, and plagues, and of evil spirits; and unto <​6/​> many blind he gave sight. <​6/​> Then Jesus answering, said unto them, Go your way, and tell John what things ye have seen and heard; how that the blind see, the lame walk, the leppers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and to the poor the gospel is preachd; <​7/​> And blessed are they, who shall not be offended in me. <​7/​> And when the messengers of John were departed, he began to speak unto the people concerning John, What went ye out into the willderness to see? A reed shakeng with the wind? Or a man clothed in soft raiment? Behold, the <​they​> who are gorgeously appereled, and live delicately, are in king<​s​> courts. But <​what​> went you <​out​> for to see? <​A​> prophet? Yea, I say unto you, and much more than a prophet. This is the one of whom it is written, Behold I send my messenger before thy face, who shall prepare thy way before thee. For I say unto you, Among those who are born of women, there is not a greater prophet than John the Baptist; but he who is least in the kingdom of God is <​8​> greater than he. <​8/​> And all the people who heard him, and the publicans, who heard him justifyed God, being Baptized with the Baptism of John. But the Pharasees and Lawyers rejected the council of God against themselves, not being not Baptised of him. <​9/​> And the Lord said; Whereunto then shall I liken the men of this generation? And to what are they like? They are like unto children sitting in the market place, and calling one to another, and saying, we <​We​> have piped for you, and ye have not danced; we have mourned for you, and ye have not wept. For John the Baptis came neither eating bread, nor drinking wine; and ye say; He hath a Devil. The son of man is come; eating and drinking, and ye say, Behold a gluttonous man, and a wine bibber; a friend of publicans and sinners! But wisdom is justifyed of all her children. <​10/​> And one of the Pharasees desired him, that he would eat with him. And he went into the Pharasee’s house, and he sat down to meet <​meat​>. And behold the <​a​> woman in the City, who was a sinner, when shee knew that Jesus sat at meat, in the Pharasees house, brought an allabaster box of ointment, and stood at his feet weeping, and [p. 62 (second numbering)]
