[1] 10721072    Luke vii. 40.Jesus answered and said unto him, Simon, I have something to say unto thee.  And [2] he said unto him, Say on, my Master.  10731073    Luke vii. 41.Jesus said unto him, There were two debtors [Arabic, p. 58] to one creditor; and one of them owed five hundred pence, and the other [3] owed fifty pence.  10741074    Luke vii. 42.And because they had not wherewith to pay, he forgave [4] them both.  Which of them ought to love him more?  10751075    Luke vii. 43.Simon answered and said, I suppose, he to whom he forgave most.  Jesus said unto him, Thou hast judged rightly.  [5] 10761076    Luke vii. 44.And he turned to that woman, and said to Simon, Dost thou see this woman?  I entered into thy dwelling, and thou gavest me not water to wash my feet:  but this [6] woman hath bathed10771077    Lit. sunk, a word the choice of which is explained by the Syriac. my feet with her tears, and dried them with her hair.  10781078    Luke vii. 45.And thou kissedst me not:  but this woman, since she10791079    Or, I. entered, hath not ceased to kiss my [7] feet.  10801080    Luke vii. 46.And thou anointedst not my head with oil:10811081    Same word in Arabic.  but this woman hath anointed [8] my feet with sweet ointment.10821082    Same word in Arabic.  10831083    Luke vii. 47.And for this, I say unto thee, Her many sins are forgiven her, because she loved much; for he to whom little is forgiven loveth little.  [9, 10] 10841084    Luke vii. 48.And he said unto that woman, Thy sins are forgiven thee.  10851085    Luke vii. 49.And those that were invited [11] began to say within themselves, Who is this that forgiveth sins also?  10861086    Luke vii. 50.And Jesus said to that woman, Thy faith hath saved thee; go in peace.

67[12] 10871087    John ii. 23b.And many believed in him when they saw the signs which he was doing.  [13, 14] 10881088    John ii. 24.But Jesus did not trust10891089    The meaning is not apparent. himself to them, 10901090    John ii. 25.for he knew every man, and he needed not any man to testify to him concerning every man; for he knew what was in man.

[15] 10911091    Luke x. 1.And after that, Jesus set apart from his disciples other seventy, and sent them two and two before his face to every region and city whither he was purposing to [16] go.  10921092    Luke x. 2.And he said unto them, The harvest is abundant, and the labourers are few:  [17] entreat now the Lord of the harvest, that he send forth labourers into his harvest.  10931093    Luke x. 3.Go [18] [Arabic, p. 59] ye:  and lo, I am sending you as lambs among wolves.  10941094    Luke x. 4.Take not with you [19] purses, nor a wallet, nor shoes; neither salute any man in the way.  10951095    Luke x. 5.And [20] whatsoever house ye enter, first salute that house:  10961096    Luke x. 6.and if there be there a son of peace, [21] let your peace rest upon him; but if there be not, your peace shall return to you.  10971097    Luke x. 7.And be ye in that house eating and drinking what they have:10981098    cf. Syriac versions.  for the labourer is worthy of [22] his hire.  10991099    Luke x. 8.And remove not from house to house.  And into whatsoever city ye enter, [23] and they receive you, eat what is presented to you:  11001100    Luke x. 9.and heal the sick that are [24] therein, and say unto them, The kingdom of God is come near unto you.  11011101    Luke x. 10.But whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you not, go out into the market, and say, [25] 11021102    Luke x. 11.Even the dust that clave to our feet from your city, we shake off against you; but [26] know11031103    The first letter of the word has been lost. this,11041104    Lit. that, as often in this work. that the kingdom of God is come near unto you.  11051105    Luke x. 12.I say unto you, that for Sodom there shall be quiet in the day of judgement, but there shall not be for [27] that city.  11061106    Matt. xi. 20.Then began Jesus to rebuke the cities in which there had been many [28] mighty works,11071107    Lit. powers. and they repented not.  11081108    Matt. xi. 21.And he said, Woe unto thee, Chorazin! woe unto thee, Bethsaida! if there had been in Tyre and Sidon the signs which were in [29] thee, it may be that they would have repented in sackcloth and ashes.  11091109    Matt. xi. 22.Howbeit I say unto you, that for Tyre and Sidon there shall be rest in the day of judgement, [30] more than for you.  11101110    Matt. xi. 23.And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted unto heaven, shalt sink down unto Hades; for if there had been in Sodom the wonders11111111    The word as printed by Ciasca perhaps means gifts, but by dropping a point from the second letter we get the post-classical word given in the text above. which were [31] in thee, it would have remained until this day.  11121112    Matt. xi. 24.And now I say unto thee, that for the land of Sodom there shall be quiet in the day of judgement, more than for thee.

[32] [Arabic, p. 60] 11131113    Luke x. 16.And he said again unto his apostles, Whosoever heareth you heareth me; and whosoever heareth me heareth him that sent me:  and whosoever wrongeth11141114    See below, § 20, 28, note. you wrongeth me; and whosoever wrongeth me wrongeth him that sent me.

[33] 11151115    Luke x. 17.And those seventy returned with great joy, and said unto him, Our Lord, even [34] the devils also are subject unto us in thy name.  11161116    Luke x. 18.He said unto them, I beheld [35] Satan11171117    The word translated devil in preceding verse. fallen like lightning from heaven.  11181118    Luke x. 19.Behold, I am giving you authority to tread upon serpents and scorpions, and the whole race11191119    This is an Arabic clerical error for forces.  The Syriac word for power means also military forces, which was apparently rendered in Arabic army, a word that differs from race only in diacritical points. of the enemy; and nothing shall [36] hurt you.  11201120    Luke x. 20.Only ye must not rejoice that the devils are subject unto you; but be glad that your names are written in heaven.

[37] 11211121    Luke x. 21.And in that hour Jesus rejoiced in the Holy Spirit, and said, I acknowledge thee, my Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou didst hide these things from the wise and understanding, and didst reveal them unto children:  yea, my Father; so [38] was thy will.  11221122    Luke x. 22.And he turned to his disciples,11231123    cf. Pesh. and A.V. margin. and said unto them, Everything hath been delivered to me of my Father:  and no man knoweth who the Son is, save the Father; and who the Father is, save the Son, and to whomsoever the Son willeth [39] to reveal him11241124    Matt. xi. 28.Come unto me, all of you, ye that are wearied and bearers of burdens, [40] and I will give you rest.  11251125    Matt. xi. 29.Bear my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for11261126    Lit. that (cf. above, § 1, 50, note). I [41] am gentle and lowly in my heart:  and ye shall find rest unto your souls.  11271127    Matt. xi. 30.For my yoke is pleasant, and my burden is light.

[42] 11281128    Luke xiv. 25.And while great multitudes were going with him, he turned, and said unto them, [43] 11291129    Luke xiv. 26.Whosoever cometh unto me, and hateth not his father, and his mother, and his brethren, and his sisters, and his wife, and his children, and himself11301130    Or, his life; or, his soul. also, cannot [44] [Arabic, p. 61] be a disciple to me.  11311131    Luke xiv. 27.And whosoever doth not take his cross, and follow [45] me, cannot be a disciple to me.  11321132    Luke xiv. 28.Which of you desireth to build a tower, 68and doth not sit down first and reckon his expenses and whether he hath enough to [46] complete it?11331133    This rendering assumes that tower is treated as feminine. 11341134    Luke xiv. 29.lest when he hath laid the foundations, and is not able to finish, all that [47] behold him11351135    Or, it. laugh at him, and say, 11361136    Luke xiv. 30.This man began to build, and was not able to [48] finish.  11371137    Luke xiv. 31.Or what king goeth to the battle to fight with another king,11381138    Or, a king like him. and doth not consider first whether he is able with ten thousand to meet him that cometh to him [49] with twenty thousand?  11391139    Luke xiv. 32.And if he is not able, he sendeth unto him while he is afar [50] off, and seeketh peace.  11401140    Luke xiv. 33.So shall11411141    Or, let. every man of you consider, that desireth to be a disciple to me; for if he renounceth not all that he hath, he cannot be a disciple to me.
