[9, 10] 963963 Matt. x. 24.A disciple is not superior to his lord, nor a servant to his master. 964964 Matt. x. 25.For it is enough then for the disciple that he be as his lord, and the servant as his master. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebul, how much more the people 64 of his house! 965965 Matt. x. 26.Fear them not therefore:966966 See note to § 9, 21. for there is nothing covered, that shall  [Arabic, p. 51] not be revealed; nor hid, that shall not be disclosed and published. 967967 Matt. x. 27a; Luke xii. 3b.What I say unto you in the darkness, speak ye in the light; and what ye have told  secretly in the ears in closets, let it be proclaimed on the housetops. 968968 Luke xii. 4a; Luke x. 28b.I say unto you now, my beloved, Be not agitated at969969 Perhaps this Arabic word is a copyist’s error for that used a few lines further down in Luke xii. 5, the Arabic words being very similar; but see note on § 1, 14. those who kill the body, but have no power to  kill the soul. I will inform you whom ye shall fear: him970970 Syriac. which is able to destroy  soul and body in hell. 971971 Luke xii. 5; Matt. x. 29.Yea, I say unto you, Be afraid of him especially. Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing in a bond?972972 The Vat. ms., like the Brit. Mus. text of Ibn-at-Tayyib’s Commentary, omits for a farthing, retaining in a bond. The two phrases are simply different explanations of the same Syriac consonants. These are really the naturalised Greek word rendered farthing in Eng. version; but they also form a Syriac word meaning bond. and one of them shall not fall on the  ground without your Father. 973973 Matt. x. 30.But what concerns you: even the hair of your heads [17, 18] also is numbered. 974974 Matt. x. 31.Fear not therefore; ye are better than many sparrows. 975975 Matt. x. 32.Every man who confesseth me now before men, I also will confess him before my Father  which is in heaven; 976976 Matt. x. 33.but whosoever denieth me before men, I also will deny him before my Father which is in heaven.

But Mary hath chosen for herself a good portion, and that which shall not be taken from her.
 998998 Mark vi. 12.And the apostles went forth, and preached to the people that they might repent.  999999 Mark vi. 13.And they cast out many devils, and anointed many sick with oil, and healed them.

It is either an Arabic copyist’s error for the word for deaf used in Ibn-at-Tayyib’s Commentary, or a careless blunder. hear, and the dead rise, and the poor have the gospel preached to  them. 10071007 Luke vii. 23.And blessed is he who doubteth not in me.
