them, Wheresoever the body is gathered; or, in other words, whithersoever the saints are gathered, thither will the eagles be gathered together; or, thither will the remainder be gathered together. This he spake signifying the gathering of his saints; and of Angels descending and gathering the remainder unto them; the one from the bed, the other from the grinding, and the other from the feild, whithersoever he listeth. For verily there shall be new heavens where and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness. And there shall be no unclean thing; for the earth becoming old, even as a garment, having waxed in corruption, wherefore it vanisheth away, and the footstool remaineth sanctifyed, cleansed from all sin.
Luke, Chapter 18
Chapter (18th)
<​1​> And he spake a parable unto them, saying, Men ought always to pray and not faint, Saying, There was in a City a judge, which feared not God, nor regarded <​man,​> And there was a widow in that City; and she came unto him, saying, avenge Avenge me of mine adversary. And he would not for a while; but afterward, he said within himself, Though I fear not God, nor regard man; yet, because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her; let <​lest​>, by her continual coming, she <​2/​> weary me. <​2/​> And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge saith. And shall not God avenge his own elect, who cry day and night unto <​him,​> though he bear long with them <​men?​> I tell you, <​that​> he will <​come; and when deos does come, he will​> avenge them<​his​><​his saints​> speedily. Nevertheless, when the <​3/​> son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth? <​3/​> He spake this parable unto certain men who trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and dispised others. Two men went up into the Temple to pray; the one a Pharasee, the other a publican. The Pharasee stood and prayed thus with himself; Lord <​God,​> I thank thee that I am not as other men, extortioners, unjust, dulterers; or even as this Publican. I fast twice in the week; I give tithes of all that I possess. And <​But​> the Publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be mercifull mercifull to me a sinner. I tell <​you,​> this man went down to his house justifyed, rather than the other; for every one who exalteth himself, shall be abased; and he who humbleth <​4/​> himself, shall be exalted. <​4/​> And they brought unto him also, infants, that he might touch them; but when his disciples saw it, they rebuked him them. But Jesus called them, and said, Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not; for of such is the kingdom of God. [p. 89 (second numbering)]

Chapter (18th)
1 And he spake a parable unto them, saying, Men ought always to pray and not faint, Saying, There was in a City a judge, which feared not God, nor regarded man, And there was a widow in that City; and she came unto him, saying, Avenge me of mine adversary. And he would not for a while; but afterward, he said within himself, Though I fear not God, nor regard man; yet, because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her; lest, by her continual coming, she 2/ weary me. 2/ And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge saith. And shall not God avenge his own elect, who cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with men? I tell you, that he will come; and when does come, he will avenge his saints speedily. Nevertheless, when the 3/ son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth? 3/ He spake this parable unto certain men who trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and dispised others. Two men went up into the Temple to pray; the one a Pharasee, the other a publican. The Pharasee stood and prayed thus with himself; God, I thank thee that I am not as other men, extortioners, unjust, dulterers; or even as this Publican. I fast twice in the week; I give tithes of all that I possess. But the Publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be mercifull to me a sinner. I tell you, this man went down to his house justifyed, rather than the other; for every one who exalteth himself, shall be abased; and he who humbleth 4/ himself, shall be exalted. 4/ And they brought unto him also, infants, that he might touch them; but when his disciples saw it, they rebuked them. But Jesus called them, and said, Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not; for of such is the kingdom of God. [p. 89 (second numbering)]
