Better for thee to enter into life with one eye, rather then having two eyes to be cast into hell fire. & <​And​> a man’s hand is his friend, & his foot also; & a mans eye, are they of his own house <​3/​> hold. <​3/​> Take heed that ye dispise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, that in Heaven their angels do always behold the face of my father who is in Heaven. For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost, & to call sinners to repentance; but those little ones have no need of repentance, & I will save <​4/​> them. <​4/​> How think ye? If a man have a Hundred sheep, & one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety & nine & goeth into the Mountains, & Seeketh that which is gone astray? & <​And​> if it so be that he find it, verily I say unto you, he rejoiceth more over that which was lost, then over the ninety & nine which went not astray; even so, it is not the will of your father which is in Heaven, <​5/​> that one of these little ones should perish. <​5/​> Moreover, if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go not<​&​> till <​tell​> him his fault between thee & him alone; if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother; but if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two moree, that in the mouth of two or three witnessess every word may be established; & if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the Church; but if he neglect to hear the Church, let him <​6/​> be unto you as a heathen man & a publican. <​6/​> verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye <​shall​> bind on Earth, shall be bound in Heaven; & whatsoever <​ye​> shall loose on Earth, shall be loosed in Heaven. <​7/​> Again, I say unto you, that if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, that they may not ask amiss, it shall be done for them of my father which is in heaven. For where two or three are agreed <​gethered​> together in my name, there am <​8/​> I in the midst of them. <​8​> Then came Peter to him, & said, Lord, how oft shall my brother Sin against me, & I forgive him? Till seven times? Jesus saith <​said​> unto him, I say not unto thee, untill seven times; but, untill Seventy times Seven. Therefore is the Kingdom of Heaven likened unto a certain King, who would take account of his Servents. & <​And​> when he had begun to recon, one was brought unto him who owed him ten thousand tallents; but, for as much as he had not to pay, his lord commanded him to be sold, & his wife, & children, & all that he had, & payment to be made. & <​And​> the servent besought him, saying, Lord, have patience with me, & I will pay thee all. Then the Lord of that Servent was moved [p. 34 (first numbering)]
Better for thee to enter into life with one eye, rather then having two eyes to be cast into hell fire. & And a man’s hand is his friend, & his foot also; & a mans eye, are they of his own house 3/ hold. 3/ Take heed that ye dispise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, that in Heaven their angels do always behold the face of my father who is in Heaven. For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost, & to call sinners to repentance; but those little ones have no need of repentance, & I will save 4/ them. 4/ How think ye? If a man have a Hundred sheep, & one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety & nine & goeth into the Mountains, & Seeketh that which is gone astray? And if it so be that he find it, verily I say unto you, he rejoiceth more over that which was lost, then over the ninety & nine which went not astray; even so, it is not the will of your father which is in Heaven, 5/ that one of these little ones should perish. 5/ Moreover, if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go not& till tell him his fault between thee & him alone; if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother; but if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two moree, that in the mouth of two or three witnessess every word may be established; & if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the Church; but if he neglect to hear the Church, let him 6/ be unto you as a heathen man & a publican. 6/ verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on Earth, shall be bound in Heaven; & whatsoever ye shall loose on Earth, shall be loosed in Heaven. 7/ Again, I say unto you, that if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, that they may not ask amiss, it shall be done for them of my father which is in heaven. For where two or three are gethered together in my name, there am 8/ I in the midst of them. 8 Then came Peter to him, & said, Lord, how oft shall my brother Sin against me, & I forgive him? Till seven times? Jesus said unto him, I say not unto thee, untill seven times; but, untill Seventy times Seven. Therefore is the Kingdom of Heaven likened unto a certain King, who would take account of his Servents. And when he had begun to recon, one was brought unto him who owed him ten thousand tallents; but, for as much as he had not to pay, his lord commanded him to be sold, & his wife, & children, & all that he had, & payment to be made. And the servent besought him, saying, Lord, have patience with me, & I will pay thee all. Then the Lord of that Servent was moved [p. 34 (first numbering)]
