Matt.8:26 26καὶ λέγει αὐτοῖς, Τί δειλοί ἐστε, ὀλιγόπιστοι; τότε ἐγερθεὶς ἐπετίμησεν τοῖς ἀνέμοις καὶ τῇ θαλάσσῃ, καὶ ἐγένετο γαλήνη μεγάλη. 26 {NEQ} Jesus responded {RPT} , Why are you afraid ? You have so little faith ! Then he got up and rebuked the wind and waves , and suddenly there was a great calm .
Matt.8:27 27οἱ δὲ ἄνθρωποι ἐθαύμασαν. λέγοντες, Ποταπός ἐστιν οὗτος; ὅτι καὶ οἱ ἄνεμοι καὶ θάλασσα αὐτῷ ὑπακούουσιν. 27 {NEQ} The disciples were amazed . Who is this man ? they asked . {NEQ} Even the winds and {NEQ} waves obey him !
Matt.8:30 30ἦν δὲ μακρὰν ἀπ᾽ αὐτῶν ἀγέλη χοίρων πολλῶν βοσκομένη. 30 {NEQ} There happened to be a large herd of pigs feeding in the distance {RPT} .
Matt.9:5 5τί γάρ ἐστιν εὐκοπώτερον εἰπεῖν Ἀφίενταί σου αἱ ἁμαρτίαι, εἰπεῖν, ̓Έγειρε καὶ περιπάτει; 5 {NEQ} Is it easier to say Your {NEQ} sins are forgiven , or {RPT} Stand up and walk ?
Matt.9:13 13πορευθέντες δὲ μάθετε τί ἐστιν· ̓Έλεος θέλω, καὶ οὐ θυσίαν. οὐ γὰρ ἦλθον καλέσαι δικαίους, ἀλλὰ ἁμαρτωλούς. 13 Then he added , Now go and learn the meaning of this Scripture : I want you to show mercy , {NEQ} not offer sacrifices .  *  For I have come to call not those who think they are righteous , but those who know they are sinners .
Matt.9:15 15καὶ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς Ἰησοῦς, Μὴ δύνανται οἱ υἱοὶ τοῦ νυμφῶνος πενθεῖν ἐφ᾽ ὅσον μετ᾽ αὐτῶν ἐστὶν νυμφίος; ἐλεύσονται δὲ ἡμέραι ὅταν ἀπαρθῇ ἀπ᾽ αὐτῶν νυμφίος, καὶ τότε νηστεύσουσιν. 15 {NEQ} Jesus {NEQ} replied {RPT} , Do wedding guests mourn while celebrating with the groom {RPT} ?

Matt.10:2 2τῶν δὲ δώδεκα ἀποστόλων τὰ ὀνόματά ἐστιν ταῦτα· πρῶτος, Σίμων (ὁ λεγόμενος Πέτρος), καὶ Ἀνδρέας (ὁ ἀδελφὸς αὐτοῦ), καὶ Ἰάκωβος (ὁ τοῦ Ζεβεδαίου), καὶ Ἰωάνης (ὁ ἀδελφὸς αὐτοῦ), 2 {NEQ} Here are the names of the twelve apostles : first , Simon ( also {NEQ} called Peter ) , then Andrew ( Peter’s {NEQ} brother ) , {NEQ} James ( {NEQ} son of Zebedee ) , {NEQ} John ( James’s {NEQ} brother ) ,

Matt.10:20 20οὐ γὰρ ὑμεῖς ἐστὲ οἱ λαλοῦντες— ἀλλὰ τὸ πνεῦμα τοῦ πατρὸς ὑμῶν τὸ λαλοῦν ἐν ὑμῖν. 20 For it is not you who will be speaking it will be the Spirit of your {NEQ} Father {NEQ} speaking through you .
Matt.10:24 24οὐκ ἔστιν μαθητὴς ὑπὲρ τὸν διδάσκαλον, οὐδὲ δοῦλος ὑπὲρ τὸν κύριον αὐτοῦ. 24 Students  *  are not greater than their teacher , and slaves are not greater than their {NEQ} master .
Matt.10:26 26μὴ οὖν φοβηθῆτε αὐτούς. οὐδὲν γάρ ἐστιν κεκαλυμμένον οὐκ ἀποκαλυφθήσεται, καὶ κρυπτὸν οὐ γνωσθήσεται. 26 But don’t be afraid of those who threaten you .

Matt.11:14 14καὶ εἰ θέλετε δέξασθαι, αὐτός ἐστιν Ἠλείας, μέλλων ἔρχεσθαι. 14 And if you are willing to accept what I say , he is Elijah , the one the prophets said would come .  * 
Matt.11:16 16τίνι δὲ ὁμοιώσω τὴν γενεὰν ταύτην; ὁμοία ἐστὶν παιδίοις καθημένοις ἐν ταῖς ἀγοραῖς· προσφωνοῦντα τοῖς ἑτέροις 16 {NEQ} To what can I compare this {NEQ} generation ? It is like children playing a game in the public square . They complain to their friends ,
Matt.11:29 29ἄρατε τὸν ζυγόν μου ἐφ᾽ ὑμᾶς. καὶ μάθετε ἀπ᾽ ἐμοῦ, ὅτι πραΰς εἰμι καὶ ταπεινὸς τῇ καρδίᾳ, καὶ εὑρήσετε ἀνάπαυσιν ταῖς ψυχαῖς ὑμῶν. 29 Take my {NEQ} yoke upon you . {NEQ} Let me teach you , because I am humble and gentle at {NEQ} heart , and you will find rest for your {NEQ} souls .
Matt.11:30 30 γὰρ ζυγός μου χρηστός, καὶ τὸ φορτίον μου ἐλαφρόν ἐστιν. 30 For my {NEQ} yoke is easy to bear , and the burden I give you is light .
Matt.12:4 4πῶς εἰσῆλθεν εἰς τὸν οἶκον τοῦ θεοῦ, καὶ τοὺς ἄρτους τῆς προθέσεως ἔφαγον οὐκ ἐξὸν ἦν αὐτῷ φαγεῖν οὐδὲ τοῖς μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ εἰ μὴ τοῖς ἱερεῦσιν μόνοις. 4 {NEQ} He went into {RPT} the house of {NEQ} God , and he and his companions broke the law by eating {NEQ} the {NEQ} sacred loaves of bread that only the priests are allowed to eat .
Matt.12:5 5 οὐκ ἀνέγνωτε ἐν τῷ νόμῳ ὅτι τοῖς σάββασιν οἱ ἱερεῖς ἐν τῷ ἱερῷ τὸ σάββατον βεβηλοῦσιν καὶ ἀναίτιοί εἰσιν; 5 And haven’t you read in the law of Moses that the priests on duty in the Temple {RPT} {RPT} may work on the Sabbath ?
Matt.12:6 6λέγω δὲ ὑμῖν, ὅτι τοῦ ἱεροῦ μεῖζόν ἐστιν ὧδε. 6 {NEQ} I tell you , {NEQ} there is one here who is even greater than the Temple !
Matt.12:7 7εἰ δὲ ἐγνώκειτε τί ἐστιν· ̓Έλεος θέλω, καὶ οὐ θυσίαν· οὐκ ἂν κατεδικάσατε τοὺς ἀναιτίους. 7 But you would not have condemned my innocent disciples if you knew the meaning of this Scripture : I want you to show mercy , {NEQ} not offer sacrifices .  * 
Matt.12:8 8κύριος γάρ ἐστιν τοῦ σαββάτου υἱὸς τοῦ ἀνθρώπου. 8 For the Son of {NEQ} Man  *  is Lord , even over the Sabbath !
Matt.12:23 23καὶ ἐξίσταντο πάντες οἱ ὄχλοι καὶ ἔλεγον, Μήτι οὗτός ἐστιν υἱὸς Δαυείδ; 23 {NEQ} The crowd was amazed and asked , Could it be that Jesus is the Son of David , the Messiah ?
Matt.12:30 30 μὴ ὢν μετ᾽ ἐμοῦ κατ᾽ ἐμοῦ ἐστίν, καὶ μὴ συνάγων μετ᾽ ἐμοῦ σκορπίζει. 30 Anyone who isn’t with me opposes me , and anyone who isn’t working with me is actually working against me .
Matt.12:34 34γεννήματα ἐχιδνῶν· πῶς δύνασθε ἀγαθὰ λαλεῖν πονηροὶ ὄντες; ἐκ γὰρ τοῦ περισσεύματος τῆς καρδίας τὸ στόμα λαλεῖ. 34 You brood of snakes ! How could evil men like you speak what is good and right ? For whatever is in your heart determines what you say .
Matt.12:40 40ὥσπερ γὰρ ἦν Ἰωνᾶς ἐν τῇ κοιλίᾳ τοῦ κήτους τρεῖς ἡμέρας καὶ τρεῖς νύκτας, οὕτως ἔσται υἱὸς τοῦ ἀνθρώπου ἐν τῇ καρδίᾳ τῆς γῆς τρεῖς ἡμέρας καὶ τρεῖς νύκτας. 40 For as Jonah was in the belly of the great fish for three days and three nights , so will the Son of {NEQ} Man be in the heart of the earth for three days and three nights .
Matt.12:48 48 δὲ ἀποκριθεὶς εἶπεν τῷ λέγοντι αὐτῷ, Τίς ἐστιν μήτηρ μου; καί Τίνες εἰσὶν οἱ ἀδελφοί μου; 48 {NEQ} Jesus asked {RPT} , Who is my {NEQ} mother ? {NEQ} Who are my {NEQ} brothers ?
Matt.12:50 50ὅστις γὰρ ἂν ποιήσῃ τὸ θέλημα τοῦ πατρός μου τοῦ ἐν οὐρανοῖς αὐτός μου ἀδελφὸς καὶ ἀδελφὴ καὶ μήτηρ ἐστίν. 50 {NEQ} Anyone who does the will of my {NEQ} Father {RPT} in heaven {RPT} is my brother and sister and mother !
Matt.13:19 19παντὸς ἀκούοντος τὸν λόγον τῆς βασιλείας καὶ μὴ συνιέντος. ἔρχεται πονηρὸς καὶ ἁρπάζει τὸ ἐσπαρμένον ἐν τῇ καρδίᾳ αὐτοῦ. οὗτός ἐστιν παρὰ τὴν ὁδὸν σπαρείς. 19 The seed that fell on the footpath represents those who hear the message about the Kingdom and don’t understand it . Then the evil one comes and snatches away the seed that was planted in their {NEQ} hearts .
Matt.13:20 20 δὲ ἐπὶ τὰ πετρώδη σπαρείς οὗτός ἐστιν τὸν λόγον ἀκούων καὶ εὐθὺς μετὰ χαρᾶς λαμβάνων αὐτόν. 20 {RPT} {NEQ} The seed on the rocky soil represents those who hear the message and immediately receive it with joy .
Matt.13:21 21οὐκ ἔχει δὲ ῥίζαν ἐν ἑαυτῷ, ἀλλὰ πρόσκαιρός ἐστιν· γενομένης δὲ θλίψεως διωγμοῦ διὰ τὸν λόγον εὐθὺς σκανδαλίζεται. 21 But since they don’t have deep roots , they don’t last long . They fall away as soon as they have problems or are persecuted for believing God’s word .
Matt.13:22 22 δὲ εἰς τὰς ἀκάνθας σπαρείς οὗτός ἐστιν τὸν λόγον ἀκούων, καὶ μέριμνα τοῦ αἰῶνος καὶ ἀπάτη τοῦ πλούτου συμπνίγει τὸν λόγον, καὶ ἄκαρπος γίνεται. 22 {NEQ} The seed that fell among the thorns represents {RPT} those who hear God’s word , but all too quickly the message is crowded out by the worries of this {NEQ} life and the lure of {NEQ} wealth , so no fruit is produced .
Matt.13:23 23 δὲ ἐπὶ τὴν καλὴν γῆν σπαρείς οὗτός ἐστιν τὸν λόγον ἀκούων καὶ συνιείς, ὃς δὴ καρποφορεῖ καὶ ποιεῖ μὲν ἑκατόν, δὲ ἑξήκοντα, δὲ τριάκοντα. 23 {NEQ} The seed that fell on {NEQ} good soil {RPT} represents those who truly hear and understand God’s word {RPT} and produce a harvest of {NEQ} {NEQ} thirty , {NEQ} {NEQ} sixty , or even a hundred times as much as had been planted !
Matt.13:31 31ἄλλην παραβολὴν παρέθηκεν αὐτοῖς λέγων· Ὁμοία ἐστὶν βασιλεία τῶν οὐρανῶν κόκκῳ σινάπεως ὃν λαβὼν ἄνθρωπος ἔσπειρεν ἐν τῷ ἀγρῷ αὐτοῦ. 31 Here is another illustration Jesus used {RPT} : The Kingdom of {NEQ} Heaven is like a mustard seed {RPT} {NEQ} {NEQ} planted in a field {RPT} .
Matt.13:32 32 μικρότερον μέν ἐστιν πάντων τῶν σπερμάτων, ὅταν δὲ αὐξηθῇ μεῖζον τῶν λαχάνων ἐστίν· καὶ γίνεται δένδρον, ὥστε ἐλθεῖν τὰ πετεινὰ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καὶ κατασκηνοῦν ἐν τοῖς κλάδοις αὐτοῦ. 32 It is the smallest {NEQ} of all {NEQ} seeds , {NEQ} but it becomes the largest {NEQ} of {NEQ} garden plants ; {NEQ} it grows into a tree , and {NEQ} birds come and make nests in its {NEQ} branches .
Matt.13:33 33ἄλλην παραβολὴν ἐλάλησεν αὐτοῖς· Ὁμοία ἐστὶν βασιλεία τῶν οὐρανῶν ζύμῃ· ἣν λαβοῦσα γυνὴ ἐνέκρυψεν εἰς ἀλεύρου σάτα τρία, ἕως οὗ ἐζυμώθη ὅλον. 33 Jesus also used this illustration {RPT} : The Kingdom of {NEQ} Heaven is like the yeast a woman {RPT} used in making bread . Even though she put only a little yeast in three measures of flour , {RPT} {RPT} it permeated every part of the dough .
Matt.13:37 37 δὲ ἀποκριθεὶς εἶπεν, σπείρων τὸ καλὸν σπέρμα ἐστὶν υἱὸς τοῦ ἀνθρώπου. 37 {NEQ} Jesus replied , The Son of {NEQ} Man  *  is the farmer who plants the good seed .
Matt.13:38 38 δὲ ἀγρός ἐστιν κόσμος, τὸ δὲ καλὸν σπέρμα οὗτοί εἰσιν οἱ υἱοὶ τῆς βασιλείας. τὰ δὲ ζιζάνιά εἰσιν οἱ υἱοὶ τοῦ πονηροῦ. 38 {NEQ} The field is the world , and the good seed {RPT} represents the people of the Kingdom . {NEQ} The weeds are the people who belong to the evil one .
Matt.13:39 39 δὲ ἐχθρὸς σπείρας αὐτά ἐστιν διάβολος. δὲ θερισμὸς συντέλεια αἰῶνός ἐστιν, οἱ δὲ θερισταὶ ἄγγελοί εἰσιν. 39 {NEQ} The enemy who planted the weeds among the wheat is the devil . {NEQ} The harvest is the end of the world ,  *  and the harvesters are the angels .
Matt.13:44 44ὁμοία ἐστὶν βασιλεία τῶν οὐρανῶν θησαυρῷ κεκρυμμένῳ ἐν τῷ ἀγρῷ ὃν εὑρὼν ἄνθρωπος· ἔκρυψεν, καὶ ἀπὸ τῆς χαρᾶς αὐτοῦ, ὑπάγει καὶ πωλεῖ πάντα ὅσα ἔχει καὶ ἀγοράζει τὸν ἀγρὸν ἐκεῖνον. 44 The Kingdom of {NEQ} Heaven is like a treasure that a man discovered hidden in a field . {NEQ} In his {NEQ} excitement , he hid it again {NEQ} and sold everything he owned to get enough money to {NEQ} buy the field {RPT} .
Matt.13:45 45πάλιν, ὁμοία ἐστὶν βασιλεία τῶν οὐρανῶν ἐμπόρῳ ζητοῦντι καλοὺς μαργαρίτας. 45 Again , the Kingdom of {NEQ} Heaven is like a merchant on the lookout for choice pearls .
Matt.13:47 47πάλιν, ὁμοία ἐστὶν βασιλεία τῶν οὐρανῶν σαγήνῃ βληθείσῃ εἰς τὴν θάλασσαν καὶ ἐκ παντὸς γένους συναγαγούσῃ· 47 Again , the Kingdom of {NEQ} Heaven is like a fishing net that was thrown into the water and caught fish of every kind .
Matt.13:52 52 δὲ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς, Διὰ τοῦτο πᾶς γραμματεὺς μαθητευθεὶς τῇ βασιλείᾳ τῶν οὐρανῶν ὅμοιός ἐστιν ἀνθρώπῳ οἰκοδεσπότῃ ὅστις ἐκβάλλει ἐκ τοῦ θησαυροῦ αὐτοῦ καινὰ καὶ παλαιά. 52 Then he added {RPT} , {NEQ} {NEQ} Every teacher of religious law who becomes a disciple in the Kingdom of {NEQ} Heaven is like a homeowner who brings from his {NEQ} storeroom new gems of truth as well as old .
Matt.13:55 55οὐχ οὗτός ἐστιν τοῦ τέκτονος υἱός; οὐχ μήτηρ αὐτοῦ λέγεται Μαριάμ, καὶ οἱ ἀδελφοὶ αὐτοῦ— Ἰάκωβος, καὶ Ἰωσήφ, καὶ Σίμων, καὶ Ἰούδας; 55 Then they scoffed , {NEQ} He’s just the {NEQ} carpenter’s son , {NEQ} and we know Mary , his {NEQ} mother , and his {NEQ} brothers James , {NEQ} Joseph ,  *  {NEQ} Simon , and Judas .
Matt.13:56 56καὶ αἱ ἀδελφαὶ αὐτοῦ οὐχὶ πᾶσαι πρὸς ἡμᾶς εἰσίν; πόθεν οὖν τούτῳ ταῦτα πάντα; 56 {NEQ} All his {NEQ} sisters {NEQ} live right here among us . {NEQ} Where did he learn all these things ?
Matt.13:57 57καὶ ἐσκανδαλίζοντο ἐν αὐτῷ. δὲ Ἰησοῦς εἶπεν αὐτοῖς, Οὐκ ἔστιν προφήτης ἄτιμος εἰ μὴ ἐν τῇ πατρίδι καὶ ἐν τῇ οἰκίᾳ αὐτοῦ. 57 And they were deeply offended and refused to believe in him . Then {NEQ} Jesus told them , A prophet is honored everywhere except in his own {NEQ} hometown and among his own {NEQ} family .
Matt.14:2 2καὶ εἶπεν τοῖς παισὶν αὐτοῦ, Οὗτός ἐστιν Ἰωάνης Βαπτιστής αὐτὸς ἠγέρθη ἀπὸ τῶν νεκρῶν. καὶ διὰ τοῦτο αἱ δυνάμεις ἐνεργοῦσιν ἐν αὐτῷ. 2 {NEQ} he said to his {NEQ} advisers , This must be John the Baptist {RPT} raised from the dead ! {NEQ} That is why he can do such miracles .
Matt.14:15 15ὀψίας δὲ γενομένης προσῆλθαν αὐτῷ οἱ μαθηταὶ λέγοντες, ̓Έρημός ἐστιν τόπος, καὶ ὥρα ἤδη παρῆλθεν. ἀπόλυσον τοὺς ὄχλους ἵνα ἀπελθόντες εἰς τὰς κώμας ἀγοράσωσιν ἑαυτοῖς βρώματα. 15 {NEQ} That evening the disciples came to him and said , This is a remote place , and it’s already getting late . Send the crowds away so they can go to the villages and buy food for themselves .
Matt.14:21 21οἱ δὲ ἐσθίοντες ἦσαν ἄνδρες ὡσεὶ πεντακισχίλιοι, χωρὶς γυναικῶν καὶ παιδίων. 21 {NEQ} About 5,000 men were {NEQ} fed that day , in addition to all the women and children !
Matt.14:23 23καὶ ἀπολύσας τοὺς ὄχλους, ἀνέβη εἰς τὸ ὄρος κατ᾽ ἰδίαν προσεύξασθαι. ὀψίας δὲ γενομένης μόνος ἦν ἐκεῖ. 23 {NEQ} After sending them home , he went up into the hills by himself to pray . {NEQ} Night fell while he was there alone .
Matt.14:24 24τὸ δὲ πλοῖον ἤδη σταδίους πολλοὺς ἀπὸ τῆς γῆς ἀπεῖχεν, βασανιζόμενον ὑπὸ τῶν κυμάτων, ἦν γὰρ ἐναντίος ἄνεμος. 24 Meanwhile , {NEQ} {RPT} the disciples were in trouble far away from {NEQ} land , for a strong wind had risen , and they were fighting heavy {NEQ} waves .
Matt.14:26 26οἱ δὲ μαθηταὶ ἰδόντες αὐτὸν ἐπὶ τῆς θαλάσσης περιπατοῦντα ἐταράχθησαν λέγοντες ὅτι, Φάντασμά ἐστιν, καὶ ἀπὸ τοῦ φόβου ἔκραξαν. 26 {NEQ} When the disciples saw him walking on the water , they were terrified . {NEQ} In their fear , they cried out , It’s a ghost !
Matt.14:27 27εὐθὺς δὲ ἐλάλησεν Ἰησοῦς αὐτοῖς λέγων, Θαρσεῖτε. ἐγώ εἰμι. μὴ φοβεῖσθε. 27 But {NEQ} Jesus spoke to them at once . Don’t be afraid , he said . Take courage . I am here !  * 
Matt.14:28 28ἀποκριθεὶς δὲ Πέτρος εἶπεν αὐτῷ, Κύριε, εἰ σὺ εἶ, κέλευσόν με ἐλθεῖν πρὸς σὲ ἐπὶ τὰ ὕδατα. 28 Then {NEQ} Peter called to him , Lord , if it’s really you , tell me to come to you , walking on the water .
Matt.14:33 33οἱ δὲ ἐν τῷ πλοίῳ προσεκύνησαν αὐτῷ· λέγοντες, Ἀληθῶς θεοῦ υἱὸς εἶ. 33 Then the disciples worshiped him . You really are the Son of God ! they exclaimed .
Matt.15:14 14ἄφετε αὐτούς. τυφλοί εἰσιν ὁδηγοί τυφλῶν, τυφλὸς δὲ τυφλὸν ἐὰν ὁδηγῇ, ἀμφότεροι εἰς βόθυνον πεσοῦνται. 14 so ignore them . They are blind guides leading the blind , and if one blind person guides another , they will both fall into a ditch .
Matt.15:16 16 δὲ εἶπεν, Ἀκμὴν καὶ ὑμεῖς ἀσύνετοί ἐστε; 16 Don’t you understand yet ? Jesus {NEQ} asked .
Matt.15:20 20ταῦτά ἐστιν τὰ κοινοῦντα τὸν ἄνθρωπον· τὸ δὲ ἀνίπτοις χερσὶν φαγεῖν οὐ κοινοῖ τὸν ἄνθρωπον. 20 These are what defile you . {NEQ} {NEQ} Eating with unwashed hands will never defile you .
Matt.15:26 26 δὲ ἀποκριθεὶς εἶπεν, Οὐκ ἔστιν καλὸν λαβεῖν τὸν ἄρτον τῶν τέκνων καὶ βαλεῖν τοῖς κυναρίοις. 26 {NEQ} Jesus responded , It isn’t right to take {NEQ} food from the children and throw it to the dogs .
Matt.15:38 38οἱ δὲ ἐσθίοντες ἦσαν τετρακισχίλιοι ἄνδρες, χωρὶς γυναικῶν καὶ παιδίων. 38 {NEQ} There were 4,000 men who were fed that day , in addition to all the women and children .
Matt.16:13 13ἐλθὼν δὲ Ἰησοῦς εἰς τὰ μέρη Καισαρείας τῆς Φιλίππου, ἠρώτα τοὺς μαθητὰς αὐτοῦ λέγων, Τίνα λέγουσιν οἱ ἄνθρωποι εἶναι τὸν υἱὸν τοῦ ἀνθρώπου; 13 {NEQ} When {NEQ} Jesus came to the region of Caesarea {NEQ} Philippi , he asked his {NEQ} disciples , Who do {NEQ} people say that the Son of {NEQ} Man is ?  * 
Matt.16:15 15λέγει αὐτοῖς, Ὑμεῖς δὲ τίνα με λέγετε εἶναι; 15 Then he asked them , But who do you say I am ?
Matt.16:16 16ἀποκριθεὶς δὲ Σίμων Πέτρος εἶπεν, Σὺ εἶ Χριστὸς υἱὸς τοῦ θεοῦ τοῦ ζῶντος. 16 {NEQ} Simon Peter answered , You are the Messiah ,  *  the Son of the living {NEQ} God .
Matt.16:17 17ἀποκριθεὶς δὲ Ἰησοῦς εἶπεν αὐτῷ, Μακάριος εἶ, Σίμων Βαριωνᾶ, ὅτι σὰρξ καὶ αἷμα οὐκ ἀπεκάλυψέν σοι, ἀλλ᾽ πατήρ μου ἐν τοῖς οὐρανοῖς. 17 {NEQ} {NEQ} Jesus replied {RPT} , You are blessed , Simon son of John ,  *  because my {RPT} Father {RPT} in {NEQ} heaven has revealed this to you . {NEQ} You did not learn this from any human being .
Matt.16:18 18κἀγὼ δέ σοι λέγω ὅτι σὺ εἶ Πέτρος, καὶ ἐπὶ ταύτῃ τῇ πέτρᾳ οἰκοδομήσω μου τὴν ἐκκλησίαν, καὶ πύλαι ᾅδου οὐ κατισχύσουσιν αὐτῆς. 18 Now I say to you that you are Peter ( which means rock ) ,  *  and upon this {NEQ} rock I will build my {NEQ} church , and all the powers of hell  *  will not conquer it .
Matt.16:20 20τότε ἐπετίμησεν τοῖς μαθηταῖς ἵνα μηδενὶ εἴπωσιν ὅτι αὐτός ἐστιν Χριστός. 20 Then he sternly warned the disciples not to tell anyone that he was the Messiah .
Matt.16:23 23 δὲ στραφεὶς εἶπεν τῷ Πέτρῳ, ̔Ύπαγε ὀπίσω μου, Σατανᾶ. σκάνδαλον εἶ ἐμοῦ. ὅτι οὐ φρονεῖς τὰ τοῦ θεοῦ, ἀλλὰ τὰ τῶν ἀνθρώπων. 23 {NEQ} Jesus turned to {NEQ} Peter and said , Get away from me , Satan ! You are a dangerous trap to me . {NEQ} {NEQ} You are seeing things merely from a human point of view , {RPT} not from {NEQ} God’s .
Matt.16:28 28ἀμὴν λέγω ὑμῖν, ὅτι εἰσίν τινες τῶν ὧδε ἑστώτων οἵτινες οὐ μὴ γεύσωνται θανάτου ἕως ἂν ἴδωσιν τὸν υἱὸν τοῦ ἀνθρώπου ἐρχόμενον ἐν τῇ βασιλείᾳ αὐτοῦ. 28 And I tell you the truth , {NEQ} some {NEQ} standing here right now {RPT} will not die before they see the Son of {NEQ} Man coming in his {NEQ} Kingdom .
Matt.17:4 4ἀποκριθεὶς δὲ Πέτρος εἶπεν τῷ Ἰησοῦ, Κύριε, καλόν ἐστιν ἡμᾶς ὧδε εἶναι. εἰ θέλεις, ποιήσω ὧδε τρεῖς σκηνάς— σοί μίαν, καὶ Μωυσεῖ μίαν, καὶ Ἠλείᾳ μίαν. 4 {NEQ} {NEQ} Peter exclaimed {NEQ} {RPT} , Lord , it’s wonderful for us to be here ! If you want , I’ll make {RPT} three shelters as memorials  *  one for you , {NEQ} one for Moses , and one for Elijah .
Matt.17:5 5ἔτι αὐτοῦ λαλοῦντος, ἰδοὺ νεφέλη φωτεινὴ ἐπεσκίασεν αὐτούς, καὶ ἰδοὺ φωνὴ ἐκ τῆς νεφέλης λέγουσα, Οὗτός ἐστιν υἱός μου ἀγαπητός, ἐν εὐδόκησα. ἀκούετε αὐτοῦ. 5 But even as he spoke , {NEQ} a bright cloud overshadowed them , and a voice from the cloud said , This is my {RPT} dearly loved {RPT} Son , who brings me great joy . Listen to him .
Matt.17:26 26εἰπόντος δέ, Ἀπὸ τῶν ἀλλοτρίων· ἔφη αὐτῷ Ἰησοῦς, ̓Άρα γε, ἐλεύθεροί εἰσιν οἱ υἱοί. 26 They tax the people they have conquered , {NEQ} Peter replied . Well , then , {NEQ} Jesus said {RPT} , the citizens are free !
Matt.18:1 1ἐν ἐκείνῃ τῇ ὥρᾳ προσῆλθον οἱ μαθηταὶ τῷ Ἰησοῦ λέγοντες, Τίς ἄρα μείζων ἐστὶν ἐν τῇ βασιλείᾳ τῶν οὐρανῶν; 18:1 About that {NEQ} time the disciples came to {NEQ} Jesus and asked , Who {NEQ} is greatest in the Kingdom of {NEQ} Heaven ?
Matt.18:4 4ὅστις οὖν ταπεινώσει ἑαυτὸν ὡς τὸ παιδίον τοῦτο, οὗτός ἐστιν μείζων ἐν τῇ βασιλείᾳ τῶν οὐρανῶν. 4 So anyone who becomes as humble as this {NEQ} little child {RPT} is the greatest in the Kingdom of {NEQ} Heaven .
Matt.18:8 8εἰ δὲ χείρ σου πούς σου σκανδαλίζει σε, ἔκκοψον αὐτὸν καὶ βάλε ἀπὸ σοῦ. καλόν σοί ἐστιν εἰσελθεῖν εἰς τὴν ζωὴν κυλλὸν χωλὸν δύο χεῖρας δύο πόδας ἔχοντα βληθῆναι εἰς τὸ πῦρ τὸ αἰώνιον. 8 So if your {NEQ} hand or {NEQ} foot {RPT} causes you to sin , cut it off and throw it away {RPT} . It’s better {RPT} to enter {RPT} eternal life with only one hand or one foot than to be thrown into {RPT} {RPT} eternal fire with both of your hands and {RPT} feet .
Matt.18:9 9καὶ εἰ ὀφθαλμός σου σκανδαλίζει σε, ἔξελε αὐτὸν καὶ βάλε ἀπὸ σοῦ. καλόν σοί ἐστιν μονόφθαλμον εἰς τὴν ζωὴν εἰσελθεῖν δύο ὀφθαλμοὺς ἔχοντα βληθῆναι εἰς τὴν γέενναν τοῦ πυρός. 9 And if your {NEQ} eye causes you to sin , gouge it out and throw it away {RPT} . It’s better {RPT} to enter {RPT} eternal life with only one eye than to have two eyes and be thrown into the fire of {NEQ} hell .  * 
Matt.18:14 14οὕτως, οὐκ ἔστιν θέλημα ἔμπροσθεν τοῦ πατρός μου τοῦ ἐν οὐρανοῖς ἵνα ἀπόληται ἓν τῶν μικρῶν τούτων. 14 In the same way , it is not my {RPT} heavenly {RPT} Father’s will that even one of these {NEQ} little ones should perish .
Matt.18:17 17ἐὰν δὲ παρακούσῃ αὐτῶν, εἰπὸν τῇ ἐκκλησίᾳ. ἐὰν δὲ καὶ τῆς ἐκκλησίας παρακούσῃ, ἔστω σοι ὥσπερ ἐθνικὸς καὶ τελώνης. 17 {NEQ} If the person still refuses to listen {RPT} , take your case to the church . {NEQ} Then if he or she won’t accept the church’s decision , treat that person as a pagan or a corrupt tax collector .
Matt.18:20 20οὗ γάρ εἰσιν δύο τρεῖς συνηγμένοι εἰς τὸ ἐμὸν ὄνομα, ἐκεῖ εἰμὶ ἐν μέσῳ αὐτῶν. 20 For where two or three gather together as {NEQ} my followers ,  *  I am there among them .
Matt.19:6 6ὥστε οὐκέτι εἰσὶν δύο ἀλλὰ σὰρξ μία, οὖν θεὸς συνέζευξεν ἄνθρωπος μὴ χωριζέτω. 6 Since they are no longer two but one , {NEQ} let no one split apart what {NEQ} God has joined together .
Matt.19:10 10λέγουσιν αὐτῷ οἱ μαθηταὶ αὐτοῦ, Εἰ οὕτως ἐστὶν αἰτία τοῦ ἀνθρώπου μετὰ τῆς γυναικός, οὐ συμφέρει γαμῆσαι. 10 Jesus' {NEQ} disciples then said to him , If this is the case , it is better not to marry !
Matt.19:12 12εἰσὶν γὰρ εὐνοῦχοι οἵτινες ἐκ κοιλίας μητρὸς ἐγεννήθησαν οὕτως, καὶ εἰσὶν εὐνοῦχοι οἵτινες εὐνουχίσθησαν ὑπὸ τῶν ἀνθρώπων, καὶ εἰσὶν εὐνοῦχοι οἵτινες εὐνούχισαν ἑαυτοὺς διὰ τὴν βασιλείαν τῶν οὐρανῶν. δυνάμενος χωρεῖν χωρείτω. 12 {NEQ} Some are born as eunuchs , {NEQ} some {RPT} have been made eunuchs by others , and {RPT} some choose not to marry for the sake of the Kingdom of {NEQ} Heaven . Let anyone accept this who can .
Matt.19:14 14 δὲ Ἰησοῦς εἶπεν, ̓Άφετε τὰ παιδία, καὶ μὴ κωλύετε αὐτὰ ἐλθεῖν πρός με· τῶν γὰρ τοιούτων ἐστὶν βασιλεία τῶν οὐρανῶν. 14 But {NEQ} Jesus said , Let the children come to me . {NEQ} Don’t stop them ! For the Kingdom of {NEQ} Heaven belongs to those who are like these children .
Matt.19:17 17 δὲ εἶπεν αὐτῷ, Τί με ἐρωτᾷς περὶ τοῦ ἀγαθοῦ; εἷς ἐστὶν ἀγαθός. εἰ δὲ θέλεις εἰς τὴν ζωὴν εἰσελθεῖν τήρησον τὰς ἐντολάς. 17 Why ask me about what is good ? Jesus {NEQ} replied {RPT} . There is only One who is {NEQ} good . But to answer your question if you want to receive {RPT} eternal life , keep  *  the commandments .
Matt.19:21 21ἔφη αὐτῷ Ἰησοῦς, Εἰ θέλεις τέλειος εἶναι, ὕπαγε πώλησόν σου τὰ ὑπάρχοντα καὶ δὸς τοῖς πτωχοῖς, καὶ ἕξεις θησαυρὸν ἐν οὐρανοῖς. καὶ δεῦρο, ἀκολούθει μοι. 21 {NEQ} Jesus told him , If you want to be perfect , go and sell all your possessions and give the money to the poor , and you will have treasure in heaven . Then come , follow me .
Matt.19:22 22ἀκούσας δὲ νεανίσκος τὸν λόγον τοῦτον, ἀπῆλθεν λυπούμενος ἦν γὰρ ἔχων κτήματα πολλά. 22 But when the young man heard {NEQ} this , he went away sad , for he had many possessions .
Matt.19:24 24πάλιν δὲ λέγω ὑμῖν— εὐκοπώτερόν ἐστιν κάμηλον διὰ τρήματος ῥαφίδος διελθεῖν πλούσιον εἰσελθεῖν εἰς τὴν βασιλείαν τοῦ θεοῦ. 24 {NEQ} I’ll say it again {RPT} it is easier for a camel to go through {RPT} the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter {RPT} the Kingdom of {NEQ} God !
Matt.19:26 26ἐμβλέψας δὲ Ἰησοῦς εἶπεν αὐτοῖς, Παρὰ ἀνθρώποις, τοῦτο ἀδύνατόν ἐστιν· παρὰ δὲ θεῷ πάντα δυνατά. 26 {NEQ} {NEQ} Jesus looked at them intently and said , Humanly speaking , it is impossible . But with God everything is possible .
Matt.20:1 1ὁμοία γάρ ἐστιν βασιλεία τῶν οὐρανῶν ἀνθρώπῳ οἰκοδεσπότῃ ὅστις ἐξῆλθεν ἅμα πρωὶ μισθώσασθαι ἐργάτας εἰς τὸν ἀμπελῶνα αὐτοῦ. 20:1 For the Kingdom of {NEQ} Heaven is like the landowner who went out early one morning to hire workers for his {NEQ} vineyard .
Matt.20:4 4καὶ ἐκείνοις εἶπεν, Ὑπάγετε καὶ ὑμεῖς εἰς τὸν ἀμπελῶνα. καὶ ἐὰν δίκαιον δώσω ὑμῖν. 4 So he hired them , telling them he would pay them {NEQ} whatever was right at the end of the day .
Matt.20:15 15οὐκ ἔξεστίν μοι θέλω ποιῆσαι ἐν τοῖς ἐμοῖς; ὀφθαλμός σου πονηρός ἐστιν ὅτι ἐγὼ ἀγαθός εἰμι; 15 Is it against the law for me to do what I want with my money ? {NEQ} Should you be jealous because I am kind to others ?
Matt.20:23 23λέγει αὐτοῖς, Τὸ μὲν ποτήριόν μου πίεσθε· τὸ δὲ καθίσαι ἐκ δεξιῶν μου καὶ ἐξ εὐωνύμων οὐκ ἔστιν ἐμὸν δοῦναι· ἀλλ᾽ οἷς ἡτοίμασται ὑπὸ τοῦ πατρός μου. 23 Jesus told them , You will indeed drink from my bitter cup . But I have no right to say who will sit on my right or {RPT} my left . {NEQ} My {NEQ} Father has prepared those places for the ones he has chosen .
Matt.20:26 26οὐχ οὕτως ἔσται ἐν ὑμῖν, ἀλλ᾽ ὃς ἐὰν θέλῃ ἐν ὑμῖν μέγας γενέσθαι ἔσται ὑμῶν διάκονος, 26 But among you it will be different . {NEQ} Whoever wants to be a leader among you must be your servant ,
Matt.20:27 27καὶ ὃς ἂν θέλῃ ἐν ὑμῖν εἶναι πρῶτος ἔσται ὑμῶν δοῦλος. 27 and whoever wants to be first among you must become your slave .
Matt.21:10 10καὶ εἰσελθόντος αὐτοῦ εἰς Ἱεροσόλυμα ἐσείσθη πᾶσα πόλις· λέγουσα, Τίς ἐστιν οὗτος; 10 {NEQ} The entire city of Jerusalem was in an uproar as he entered {RPT} . Who is this ? they asked .
Matt.21:11 11οἱ δὲ ὄχλοι ἔλεγον, Οὗτός ἐστιν προφήτης Ἰησοῦς, ἀπὸ Ναζαρὲθ τῆς Γαλιλαίας. 11 And the crowds replied , It’s Jesus , the prophet {RPT} from Nazareth in {NEQ} Galilee .
Matt.21:25 25τὸ βάπτισμα τὸ Ἰωάνου πόθεν ἦν ἐξ οὐρανοῦ, ἐξ ἀνθρώπων; οἱ δὲ διελογίζοντο ἐν ἑαυτοῖς· λέγοντες, Ἐὰν Εἴπωμεν, Ἐξ οὐρανοῦ, ἐρεῖ ἡμῖν, Διὰ τί οὖν οὐκ ἐπιστεύσατε αὐτῷ; 25 Did {NEQ} John’s authority to {NEQ} baptize come from heaven , or was it merely human ? They {NEQ} talked it over among themselves . If we say it was from heaven , he will ask us {NEQ} why we didn’t believe John .
Matt.21:33 33ἄλλην παραβολὴν ἀκούσατε. ἄνθρωπος ἦν οἰκοδεσπότης ὅστις ἐφύτευσεν ἀμπελῶνα, καὶ φραγμὸν αὐτῷ περιέθηκεν, καὶ ὤρυξεν ἐν αὐτῷ ληνόν, καὶ ᾠκοδόμησεν πύργον. καὶ ἐξέδετο αὐτὸν γεωργοῖς καὶ ἀπεδήμησεν. 33 Now listen to another story . A certain {NEQ} landowner {RPT} planted a vineyard , {NEQ} built a wall around it , {NEQ} dug {RPT} a pit for pressing out the grape juice , and built a lookout tower . Then he leased the vineyard to tenant farmers and moved to another country .
Matt.21:38 38οἱ δὲ γεωργοὶ ἰδόντες τὸν υἱόν, εἶπον ἐν ἑαυτοῖς, Οὗτός ἐστιν κληρονόμος. δεῦτε, ἀποκτείνωμεν αὐτὸν καὶ σχῶμεν τὴν κληρονομίαν αὐτοῦ. 38 But when the tenant farmers saw his son coming , they said to one another , {RPT} Here comes the heir to this estate . Come on , let’s kill him and get the estate for ourselves {RPT} !
Matt.21:42 42λέγει αὐτοῖς Ἰησοῦς, Οὐδέποτε ἀνέγνωτε ἐν ταῖς γραφαῖς; Λίθον ὃν ἀπεδοκίμασαν οἱ οἰκοδομοῦντες οὗτος ἐγενήθη εἰς κεφαλὴν γωνίας. παρὰ κυρίου ἐγένετο αὕτη, καὶ ἔστιν θαυμαστὴ ἐν ὀφθαλμοῖς ἡμῶν. 42 Then {NEQ} Jesus asked them , Didn’t you ever read this in the Scriptures ? The stone that the builders rejected {RPT} has now become the cornerstone . This is the LORD’s doing , and it is wonderful to see {RPT} .  * 
Matt.22:8 8τότε λέγει τοῖς δούλοις αὐτοῦ, μὲν γάμος ἕτοιμός ἐστιν, οἱ δὲ κεκλημένοι οὐκ ἦσαν ἄξιοι. 8 And he said to his {NEQ} servants , The wedding feast is ready , and the guests I invited aren’t worthy of the honor .
Matt.22:14 14πολλοὶ γάρ εἰσιν κλητοί, ὀλίγοι δὲ ἐκλεκτοί. 14 For many are called , but few are chosen .
Matt.22:16 16καὶ ἀποστέλλουσιν αὐτῷ τοὺς μαθητὰς αὐτῶν, μετὰ τῶν Ἡρῳδιανῶν, λέγοντας, Διδάσκαλε, οἴδαμεν ὅτι ἀληθὴς εἶ. καὶ τὴν ὁδὸν τοῦ θεοῦ ἐν ἀληθείᾳ διδάσκεις. καὶ οὐ μέλει σοι περὶ οὐδενός οὐ γὰρ βλέπεις εἰς πρόσωπον ἀνθρώπων. 16 {NEQ} They sent some of their {NEQ} disciples , along with the supporters of Herod , to meet with him . Teacher , they said , we know how honest you are . You teach {NEQ} the way of {NEQ} God truthfully . {NEQ} You are impartial and don’t play favorites .
Matt.22:23 23ἐν ἐκείνῃ τῇ ἡμέρᾳ προσῆλθον αὐτῷ Σαδδουκαῖοι— λέγοντες μὴ εἶναι ἀνάστασιν. καὶ ἐπηρώτησαν αὐτόν· 23 That same {NEQ} day Jesus was approached by some Sadducees religious leaders who say there is no resurrection from the dead . {NEQ} They posed this question {RPT} :
Matt.22:25 25ἦσαν δέ, παρ᾽ ἡμῖν, ἑπτὰ ἀδελφοί. καὶ πρῶτος γήμας ἐτελεύτησεν καὶ μὴ ἔχων σπέρμα. ἀφῆκεν τὴν γυναῖκα αὐτοῦ τῷ ἀδελφῷ αὐτοῦ, 25 Well , suppose there were seven brothers . {NEQ} The oldest one married and then died without children , so his brother married the widow {RPT} .
Matt.22:30 30ἐν γὰρ τῇ ἀναστάσει, οὔτε γαμοῦσιν οὔτε γαμίζονται· ἀλλ᾽ ὡς ἄγγελοι ἐν τῷ οὐρανῷ εἰσίν. 30 For when the dead rise , they will neither marry nor be given in marriage . In this respect they will be like the angels in {NEQ} heaven .
Matt.22:32 32Ἐγώ εἰμι θεὸς Ἀβραάμ, καὶ θεὸς Ἰσαάκ, καὶ θεὸς Ἰακώβ. οὐκ ἔστιν θεὸς νεκρῶν, ἀλλὰ ζώντων. 32 I am the God of Abraham , {NEQ} the God of Isaac , and the God of Jacob .  *  So he is the God {NEQ} of the living , not the dead .
Matt.22:38 38αὕτη ἐστὶν μεγάλη καὶ πρώτη ἐντολή. 38 This is the first and greatest commandment .
Matt.22:42 42λέγων, Τί ὑμῖν δοκεῖ περὶ τοῦ Χριστοῦ; τίνος υἱός ἐστιν; λέγουσιν αὐτῷ, Τοῦ Δαυείδ. 42 What do you think about the Messiah ? Whose son is he ? They replied {RPT} , He is the son of David .
Matt.22:45 45εἰ οὖν Δαυεὶδ καλεῖ αὐτόν Κύριον, πῶς υἱὸς αὐτοῦ ἐστίν; 45 Since David called the Messiah my Lord , how can the Messiah be his son ?
Matt.23:8 8ὑμεῖς δὲ μὴ κληθῆτε Ῥαββεί, εἷς γάρ ἐστιν ὑμῶν διδάσκαλος, πάντες δὲ ὑμεῖς ἀδελφοί ἐστε. 8 {NEQ} Don’t let anyone call you Rabbi , for you have only one {NEQ} teacher , and all of you are equal as brothers and sisters .  * 
Matt.23:9 9καί Πατέρα, μὴ καλέσητε ὑμῶν ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς εἷς γάρ ἐστιν ὑμῶν πατὴρ οὐράνιος. 9 And don’t address anyone here {RPT} on {NEQ} earth as Father , for only {NEQ} God in {NEQ} heaven is your spiritual Father .
Matt.23:10 10μηδὲ κληθῆτε Καθηγηταί, ὅτι καθηγητὴς ὑμῶν ἐστὶν εἷς, Χριστός. 10 And don’t let anyone call you Teacher , for you have only one teacher , the Messiah .
Matt.23:16 16οὐαὶ ὑμῖν· ὁδηγοὶ τυφλοί· οἱ λέγοντες ὃς ἂν ὀμόσῃ Ἐν τῷ ναῷ, οὐδέν ἐστιν· ὃς δ᾽ ἂν ὀμόσῃ Ἐν τῷ χρυσῷ τοῦ ναοῦ, ὀφείλει. 16 Blind guides ! What sorrow awaits you ! For you {NEQ} say that it means nothing to swear by God’s Temple , but that it is binding to swear by the gold in the Temple .
Matt.23:17 17μωροὶ καὶ τυφλοί· τίς γὰρ μείζων ἐστίν— χρυσός, ναὸς ἁγιάσας τὸν χρυσόν; 17 Blind {NEQ} fools ! {NEQ} Which is more important the gold or the Temple that makes the gold sacred ?
Matt.23:18 18καὶ ὃς ἂν ὀμόσῃ, Ἐν τῷ θυσιαστηρίῳ, οὐδέν ἐστιν· ὃς δ᾽ ἂν ὀμόσῃ, Ἐν τῷ δώρῳ τῷ ἐπάνω αὐτοῦ, ὀφείλει. 18 And you say that to swear by the altar is not binding , but {RPT} {RPT} to swear by the gifts {RPT} on the altar is binding .
Matt.23:28 28οὕτως καὶ ὑμεῖς ἔξωθεν μὲν φαίνεσθε τοῖς ἀνθρώποις δίκαιοι, ἔσωθεν δέ ἐστε μεστοὶ ὑποκρίσεως καὶ ἀνομίας. 28 {NEQ} {NEQ} Outwardly you look like righteous people , but inwardly your hearts are filled with hypocrisy and lawlessness .
Matt.23:30 30καὶ λέγετε, Εἰ ἤμεθα ἐν ταῖς ἡμέραις τῶν πατέρων ἡμῶν, οὐκ ἂν ἤμεθα αὐτῶν κοινωνοὶ ἐν τῷ αἵματι τῶν προφητῶν. 30 Then you say , If we had lived in the days of our {NEQ} ancestors , we would never have joined them in {NEQ} killing the prophets .
Matt.23:31 31ὥστε, μαρτυρεῖτε ἑαυτοῖς ὅτι υἱοί ἐστε τῶν φονευσάντων τοὺς προφήτας. 31 But in saying that , you testify against yourselves that you are indeed the descendants of those who murdered the prophets .
Matt.24:5 5πολλοὶ γὰρ ἐλεύσονται ἐπὶ τῷ ὀνόματί μου, λέγοντες, Ἐγώ εἰμι Χριστός. καὶ πολλοὺς πλανήσουσιν. 5 for many will come in my {NEQ} name , claiming , I am the Messiah . {NEQ} They will deceive many .
Matt.24:6 6μελλήσετε δὲ ἀκούειν πολέμους καὶ ἀκοὰς πολέμων, ὁρᾶτε μὴ θροεῖσθε· δεῖ γὰρ γενέσθαι, ἀλλ᾽ οὔπω ἐστὶν τὸ τέλος. 6 And you will hear of wars and threats of wars , but don’t panic . Yes , these things must take place , but the end won’t follow immediately .
Matt.24:26 26ἐὰν οὖν εἴπωσιν ὑμῖν, Ἰδού, ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ ἐστίν, μὴ ἐξέλθητε. ἰδού, ἐν τοῖς ταμείοις, μὴ πιστεύσητε. 26 So if someone tells you , Look , the Messiah is out in the desert , don’t bother to go and look . Or , Look , he is hiding here , don’t believe it !
Matt.24:28 28ὅπου ἐὰν τὸ πτῶμα ἐκεῖ συναχθήσονται οἱ ἀετοί. 28 Just as the gathering of {NEQ} vultures shows there is a carcass nearby , so these signs indicate that the end is near .  * 
Matt.24:33 33οὕτως καί, ὑμεῖς ὅταν ἴδητε πάντα ταῦτα, γινώσκετε ὅτι ἐγγύς ἐστιν ἐπὶ θύραις. 33 In the same way , when you see all these things , you can know his return is very near , right at the door .
Matt.24:38 38ὡς γὰρ ἦσαν ἐν ταῖς ἡμέραις ἐκείναις ταῖς πρὸ τοῦ κατακλυσμοῦ, τρώγοντες καὶ πίνοντες γαμοῦντες καὶ γαμίζοντες ἄχρι ἧς ἡμέρας εἰσῆλθεν Νῶε εἰς τὴν κιβωτόν. 38 In {RPT} those days {RPT} before the flood , {NEQ} {NEQ} the people were enjoying banquets and parties and weddings right up to the time Noah entered {RPT} his boat .
Matt.24:45 45τίς ἄρα ἐστὶν πιστὸς δοῦλος, καὶ φρόνιμος; ὃν κατέστησεν κύριος ἐπὶ τῆς οἰκετείας αὐτοῦ τοῦ δοῦναι αὐτοῖς τὴν τροφὴν ἐν καιρῷ· 45 A faithful , {NEQ} sensible servant is one {NEQ} {NEQ} to whom the master can give the responsibility of managing his other household servants and feeding them .
Matt.25:2 2πέντε δὲ ἐξ αὐτῶν ἦσαν μωραί, καὶ πέντε φρόνιμοι. 2 {NEQ} Five of them were foolish , and five were wise .
Matt.25:21 21ἔφη αὐτῷ κύριος αὐτοῦ, Εὖ, δοῦλε ἀγαθὲ καὶ πιστέ. ἐπὶ ὀλίγα ἦς πιστός, ἐπὶ πολλῶν σε καταστήσω. εἴσελθε εἰς τὴν χαρὰν τοῦ κυρίου σου. 21 The {NEQ} master was full of praise {RPT} . Well done , my good and faithful servant . You have been faithful in handling this small amount , so now I will give you many more responsibilities . Let’s {RPT} celebrate together !  * 
Matt.25:23 23ἔφη αὐτῷ κύριος αὐτοῦ, Εὖ, δοῦλε ἀγαθὲ καὶ πιστέ. ἐπὶ ὀλίγα ἦς πιστός, ἐπὶ πολλῶν σε καταστήσω. εἴσελθε εἰς τὴν χαρὰν τοῦ κυρίου σου. 23 The {NEQ} master said {RPT} , Well done , my good and faithful servant . You have been faithful in handling this small amount , so now I will give you many more responsibilities . Let’s {RPT} celebrate together !
Matt.25:24 24προσελθὼν δὲ καὶ τὸ ἓν τάλαντον εἰληφὼς εἶπεν, Κύριε, ἔγνων σε ὅτι σκληρὸς εἶ ἄνθρωπος, θερίζων ὅπου οὐκ ἔσπειρας καὶ συνάγων ὅθεν οὐ διεσκόρπισας· 24 Then the servant with the one bag of silver came and said , Master , I knew you {NEQ} were a harsh man , harvesting crops you didn’t plant and gathering crops you didn’t cultivate .
Matt.25:35 35ἐπείνασα γάρ, καὶ ἐδώκατέ μοι φαγεῖν. ἐδίψησα, καὶ ἐποτίσατέ με. ξένος ἤμην, καὶ συνηγάγετέ με. 35 For I was hungry , and you fed me . I was thirsty , and you gave me a drink . I was a stranger , and you invited me into your home .
Matt.25:36 36γυμνός, καὶ περιεβάλετέ με. ἠσθένησα, καὶ ἐπεσκέψασθέ με. ἐν φυλακῇ ἤμην, καὶ ἤλθατε πρός με. 36 I was naked , and you gave me clothing . I was sick , and you cared for me . I was in prison , and you visited me .
Matt.25:43 43ξένος ἤμην, καὶ οὐ συνηγάγετέ με. γυμνός, καὶ οὐ περιεβάλετέ με. ἀσθενὴς καὶ ἐν φυλακῇ, καὶ οὐκ ἐπεσκέψασθέ με. 43 I was a stranger , and you didn’t invite me into your home . I was naked , and you didn’t give me clothing . I was sick and in prison , and you didn’t visit me .
Matt.26:18 18 δὲ εἶπεν, Ὑπάγετε εἰς τὴν πόλιν πρὸς τὸν δεῖνα. καὶ εἴπατε αὐτῷ, διδάσκαλος λέγει· καιρός μου ἐγγύς ἐστιν, πρὸς σὲ ποιῶ τὸ πάσχα μετὰ τῶν μαθητῶν μου. 18 As you go into the city , {NEQ} he told them , you will see a certain man . {NEQ} Tell him , The Teacher says : My {NEQ} time has come , and I will eat the Passover meal with my {NEQ} disciples at your house .
Matt.26:22 22καὶ λυπούμενοι σφόδρα, ἤρξαντο λέγειν αὐτῷ εἷς ἕκαστος, Μήτι ἐγώ εἰμι, κύριε; 22 {NEQ} Greatly distressed , each one asked {RPT} in turn , Am I the one , Lord ?
Matt.26:24 24 μὲν υἱὸς τοῦ ἀνθρώπου ὑπάγει, καθὼς γέγραπται περὶ αὐτοῦ. οὐαὶ δὲ τῷ ἀνθρώπῳ ἐκείνῳ δι᾽ οὗ υἱὸς τοῦ ἀνθρώπου παραδίδοται. καλὸν ἦν αὐτῷ εἰ οὐκ ἐγεννήθη ἄνθρωπος ἐκεῖνος. 24 For the Son of {NEQ} Man must die , as the Scriptures declared long ago {RPT} . But how terrible it will be for the one who {RPT} betrays him . It would be far better for that man if he had never been born !
Matt.26:25 25ἀποκριθεὶς δὲ Ἰούδας, παραδιδοὺς αὐτόν, εἶπεν, Μήτι ἐγώ εἰμι, ῥαββεί; λέγει αὐτῷ, Σὺ εἶπας. 25 {NEQ} Judas , the one who would betray him , also asked , Rabbi , am I the one ? And Jesus told him , You have said it .
Matt.26:26 26ἐσθιόντων δὲ αὐτῶν, λαβὼν Ἰησοῦς ἄρτον καὶ εὐλογήσας· ἔκλασεν καὶ δοὺς τοῖς μαθηταῖς, εἶπεν, Λάβετε φάγετε, τοῦτό ἐστιν τὸ σῶμά μου. 26 {NEQ} As they were eating , {NEQ} Jesus took some bread and blessed it . Then he broke it in pieces and gave it to the disciples , saying , Take this and eat it , for this is my {NEQ} body .
Matt.26:28 28τοῦτο γάρ ἐστιν τὸ αἷμά μου τῆς διαθήκης· τὸ περὶ πολλῶν ἐκχυννόμενον εἰς ἄφεσιν ἁμαρτιῶν. 28 for this is my {NEQ} blood , which confirms the covenant  *  between God and his people . It is poured out as a sacrifice to forgive the sins of many .
Matt.26:38 38τότε λέγει αὐτοῖς, Περίλυπός ἐστιν ψυχή μου ἕως θανάτου. μείνατε ὧδε καὶ γρηγορεῖτε μετ᾽ ἐμοῦ. 38 {NEQ} He told them , My {NEQ} soul is crushed with grief to the point of death . Stay here and keep watch with me .
Matt.26:39 39καὶ προελθὼν μικρὸν ἔπεσεν ἐπὶ πρόσωπον αὐτοῦ, προσευχόμενος καὶ λέγων, Πάτερ μου· εἰ δυνατόν ἐστιν, παρελθάτω ἀπ᾽ ἐμοῦ τὸ ποτήριον τοῦτο. πλὴν οὐχ ὡς ἐγὼ θέλω, ἀλλ᾽ ὡς σύ. 39 {NEQ} He went on a little farther and bowed with his face to the ground , praying {NEQ} , My Father ! If it is possible , let this {NEQ} cup of suffering be taken away from me . Yet I want your will to be done , {RPT} not mine .
Matt.26:43 43καὶ ἐλθὼν πάλιν, εὗρεν αὐτοὺς καθεύδοντας, ἦσαν γὰρ αὐτῶν οἱ ὀφθαλμοὶ βεβαρημένοι. 43 {NEQ} When he returned to them again , he found them sleeping , for they couldn’t keep their {NEQ} eyes open .
Matt.26:48 48 δὲ παραδιδοὺς αὐτόν, ἔδωκεν αὐτοῖς σημεῖον λέγων· ̔Ὸν ἂν φιλήσω αὐτός ἐστιν κρατήσατε αὐτόν. 48 {NEQ} The traitor , Judas {RPT} , had given them a prearranged signal : You will know which one {NEQ} to arrest when I greet him with a kiss .
Matt.26:63 63 δὲ Ἰησοῦς ἐσιώπα. καὶ ἀρχιερεὺς εἶπεν αὐτῷ, Ἐξορκίζω σε κατὰ τοῦ θεοῦ τοῦ ζῶντος— ἵνα ἡμῖν εἴπῃς εἰ σὺ εἶ Χριστός, υἱὸς τοῦ θεοῦ. 63 But {NEQ} Jesus remained silent . Then the high priest said to him , I demand in the name of the living {NEQ} God {NEQ} tell us if you are the Messiah , the Son of {NEQ} God .
Matt.26:66 66τί ὑμῖν δοκεῖ; οἱ δὲ ἀποκριθέντες εἶπαν, ̓Ένοχος θανάτου ἐστίν. 66 What is your verdict ? Guilty ! they {NEQ} shouted . He deserves to die !
Matt.26:68 68λέγοντες, Προφήτευσον ἡμῖν, Χριστέ. τίς ἐστιν παίσας σε; 68 jeering , Prophesy to us , you Messiah ! Who {NEQ} {NEQ} hit you that time ?
Matt.26:69 69 δέ, Πέτρος ἐκάθητο ἔξω ἐν τῇ αὐλῇ. καὶ προσῆλθεν αὐτῷ μία παιδίσκη λέγουσα, Καὶ σὺ ἦσθα μετὰ Ἰησοῦ τοῦ Γαλιλαίου. 69 Meanwhile , {NEQ} Peter was sitting outside in the courtyard . A servant girl {NEQ} came over and said to him , {NEQ} You were one of those with Jesus the Galilean .
Matt.26:71 71ἐξελθόντα δέ, εἰς τὸν πυλῶνα, εἶδεν αὐτὸν ἄλλη καὶ λέγει τοῖς ἐκεῖ, Οὗτος ἦν μετὰ Ἰησοῦ τοῦ Ναζωραίου. 71 Later , out by the gate , another servant girl noticed him and said to those standing around , This man was with Jesus of {NEQ} Nazareth .  * 
Matt.26:73 73μετὰ μικρὸν δὲ προσελθόντες οἱ ἑστῶτες εἶπον τῷ Πέτρῳ, Ἀληθῶς καὶ σὺ ἐξ αὐτῶν εἶ· καὶ γὰρ λαλιά σου δῆλόν σε ποιεῖ. 73 A little later {NEQ} some of the other bystanders came over to {NEQ} Peter and said , {NEQ} You must be one of them ; {NEQ} {NEQ} we can tell by {RPT} your Galilean accent .
Matt.27:6 6οἱ δὲ ἀρχιερεῖς λαβόντες τὰ ἀργύρια. εἶπαν, Οὐκ ἔξεστιν βαλεῖν αὐτὰ εἰς τὸν κορβανᾶν, ἐπεὶ τιμὴ αἵματός ἐστιν. 6 The {NEQ} leading priests picked up the coins . It wouldn’t be right to put this money in the Temple treasury , they said , since it was payment for murder .  * 
Matt.27:11 11 δὲ Ἰησοῦς ἐστάθη ἔμπροσθεν τοῦ ἡγεμόνος. καὶ ἐπηρώτησεν αὐτὸν ἡγεμὼν λέγων, Σὺ εἶ βασιλεὺς τῶν Ἰουδαίων; δὲ Ἰησοῦς ἔφη, Σὺ λέγεις. 11 Now {NEQ} Jesus was standing before Pilate , the Roman governor . Are you the king of the Jews ? {NEQ} the governor asked him . {NEQ} {NEQ} Jesus replied , You have said it .
Matt.27:24 24ἰδὼν δὲ Πειλᾶτος ὅτι οὐδὲν ὠφελεῖ ἀλλὰ μᾶλλον θόρυβος γίνεται. λαβὼν ὕδωρ ἀπενίψατο τὰς χεῖρας κατέναντι τοῦ ὄχλου, λέγων, Ἀθῷός εἰμι ἀπὸ τοῦ αἵματος τούτου. ὑμεῖς ὄψεσθε. 24 {NEQ} Pilate saw {NEQ} that he wasn’t getting anywhere and that {NEQ} a riot was developing . So he sent for a bowl of water and washed his hands before the crowd , saying , I am innocent of this man’s {NEQ} blood . The responsibility is yours !
Matt.27:33 33καὶ ἐλθόντες εἰς τόπον λεγόμενον Γολγοθά (ὅ ἐστιν Κρανίου Τόπος λεγόμενος). 33 And they went out to a place called Golgotha ( which means Place of the Skull ) .
Matt.27:37 37καὶ ἐπέθηκαν ἐπάνω τῆς κεφαλῆς αὐτοῦ, τὴν αἰτίαν αὐτοῦ γεγραμμένην· Οὗτός ἐστιν Ἰησοῦς, βασιλεὺς τῶν Ἰουδαίων. 37 {NEQ} A sign was fastened above Jesus' {NEQ} head , announcing the charge against him . It read : This is Jesus , the King of the Jews .
Matt.27:40 40καὶ λέγοντες, καταλύων τὸν ναὸν καὶ ἐν τρισὶν ἡμέραις οἰκοδομῶν. σῶσον σεαυτόν, εἰ υἱὸς εἶ τοῦ θεοῦ, καὶ κατάβηθι ἀπὸ τοῦ σταυροῦ. 40 Look at you now ! {NEQ} they yelled at him . You said you were going to destroy the Temple and rebuild it in three days . Well then , if you are the Son of {NEQ} God , save yourself and come down from the cross !
Matt.27:42 42̓Άλλους ἔσωσεν, ἑαυτὸν οὐ δύναται σῶσαι. βασιλεὺς Ἰσραήλ, ἐστιν; καταβάτω νῦν ἀπὸ τοῦ σταυροῦ, καὶ πιστεύσομεν ἐπ᾽ αὐτόν. 42   He saved others , they scoffed , but he can’t save himself ! So he is the King of Israel , is he ? Let him come down from the cross right now , and we will believe in him !
Matt.27:43 43πέποιθεν ἐπὶ τὸν θεόν, ῥυσάσθω νῦν εἰ θέλει αὐτόν. εἶπεν γὰρ ὅτι, Θεοῦ εἰμὶ υἱός. 43 He trusted {NEQ} God , so let God rescue him now if he wants him ! For he said , I am the Son of God .
Matt.27:46 46περὶ δὲ τὴν ἐνάτην ὥραν, ἀνεβόησεν Ἰησοῦς φωνῇ μεγάλῃ λέγων, Ἠλί, ἠλί, λεμὰ σαβαχθανεί; τοῦτ᾽ ἔστιν, Θεέ μου, θεέ μου, ἱνατί με ἐγκατέλιπες; 46   At about three o’clock , {NEQ} Jesus called out with a loud voice , Eli , Eli ,  *  lema sabachthani ? which means My God , my God , why have you abandoned me ?  * 
Matt.27:54 54 δὲ ἑκατόνταρχος καὶ οἱ μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ τηροῦντες τὸν Ἰησοῦν ἰδόντες τὸν σεισμὸν καὶ τὰ γενόμενα ἐφοβήθησαν σφόδρα. λέγοντες, Ἀληθῶς θεοῦ υἱὸς ἦν οὗτος. 54 {NEQ} The Roman officer  *  and the other soldiers {RPT} at the crucifixion were terrified by the earthquake and all that had happened .
