 10121012 Matt. xi. 11.Verily I say unto you, There hath not arisen among those whom women have borne a greater than John the Baptist; but he that is little now in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.
 [Arabic, p. 54] 10131013 Luke vii. 29.And all the people which heard, and the publicans, justified10141014 Syriac. In Arabic the word ordinarily means believed. God, for  they had been baptized with the baptism of John. 10151015 Luke vii. 30.But the Pharisees and the scribes wronged10161016 See below, § 20, 28, note. the purpose of God in themselves, in that they were not baptized of  him. 10171017 Matt. xi. 12a.And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven is  snatched away by violence. 10181018 Luke xvi. 16.The law and the prophets were until John; and after that, the kingdom of God is preached, and all press to enter it: 10191019 Matt. xi. 12b.and they that exert themselves [6, 7] snatch it away. 10201020 Matt. xi. 13.All the prophets and the law until John prophesied. 10211021 Matt. xi. 14.And if ye  will, then receive it, that he is Elijah, which is to come. 10221022 Matt. xi. 15.Whosoever hath ears that hear  let him hear. 10231023 Luke xvi. 17.Easier is the perishing of heaven and earth, than the passing away of  one point of the law. 10241024 Luke vii. 31b.To whom then shall I liken the people of this generation,10251025 See § 1, 49, note. and  to whom are they like? 10261026 Luke vii. 32.They are like the children sitting in the market, which call to their companions, and say, We sang to you, and ye danced not; we wailed to you,  and ye wept not. 10271027 Luke vii. 33.John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking wine;  and ye said, He hath demons: 10281028 Luke vii. 34.and the Son of man came eating and drinking; and ye said, Behold, a gluttonous man, and a drinker of wine, and an associate of publicans [14, 15] and sinners! 10291029 Luke vii. 35.And wisdom was justified of all her children. 10301030 Mark iii. 20, and verse 19b.And when he said that, they came to the house. And there gathered unto him again multitudes,  so that they found not bread to eat. 10311031 Luke xi. 14.And while he was casting out a devil which was dumb, when he cast out that devil, that dumb man spake. And the multitudes  [Arabic, p. 55] marvelled. 10321032 Matt. xii. 24.And the Pharisees, when they heard, said, This man doth not cast out the devils, except by Beelzebul the chief of the demons, which is in him. [18, 19] 10331033 Luke xi. 16.And others requested of him a sign from heaven, to tempt him. 10341034 Matt. xii. 25.And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them in parables, Every kingdom that withstandeth itself shall become desolate; and every house or city that disagreeth with itself shall not  stand: 10351035 Matt. xii. 26a.and if a devil cast out a devil, he withstandeth himself; neither shall he be  able to stand, but his end shall be. 10361036 Mark iii. 26b; Matt. xii. 26b.Then how now shall his kingdom stand? for ye  said that I cast out devils by Beelzebul. 10371037 Luke xi. 18b; Matt. xii. 27.And if I by Beelzebul cast out the devils, then your children, by what do they cast them out? And for this cause they shall  be judges against you. 10381038 Matt. xii. 28.But if I by the Spirit of God cast out devils, then the kingdom  of God is come near unto you. 10391039 Matt. xii. 29.Or how can a man enter into the house of a valiant man, and seize his garments,10401040 The word used in the Syriac versions (Pesh. and Cur.) means garments as well as utensils, and the Arabic translator has chosen the wrong meaning (cf. § 42, 44). if he do not beforehand secure himself10411041 Certain derivatives from the same root signify bind, but hardly this word. from  that valiant man? and then will he cut off10421042 The two Arab. mss. differ in this word, but the meaning is about the same. Perhaps both are corrupt. his house. 10431043 Luke xi. 21.But when the valiant man is  armed, guarding his house, his possessions are in peace. 10441044 Luke xi. 22.But if one come who is more valiant than he, he overcometh him, and taketh his whole armour, on which  he relieth, and divideth his spoil. 10451045 Luke xi. 23.Whosoever is not with me is against me; and  whosoever gathereth not with me scattereth abroad. 10461046 Mark iii. 28.For this reason I say unto you, [Arabic, p. 56] that all sins and blasphemies with which men blaspheme shall be forgiven  them: 10471047 Mark iii. 29.but whosoever shall blaspheme against the Holy Spirit, there is no  forgiveness for him for ever, but he is deserving of eternal punishment: 10481048 Mark iii. 30.because they 66 said that he had an unclean spirit. 10491049 Matt. xii. 32.And he said also, Every one that speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him; but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Spirit, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, nor in the world to  come. 10501050 Matt. xii. 33.Either ye must make a good tree10511051 Or, a tree good. and its fruit good; or ye must make an evil  tree10521052 Or, a tree evil. and its fruit evil: for the tree is known by its fruit. 10531053 Matt. xii. 34.Ye children of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? from the overflowings of the heart the mouth  speaketh. 10541054 Luke vi. 45a.The good man from the good treasures which are in his heart bringeth forth good things; and the wicked man from the evil treasures which are in his  heart bringeth forth evils. 10551055 Matt. xii. 36.I say unto you, that every idle word which men shall  speak, they shall give an answer for in the day of judgement: 10561056 Matt. xii. 37.for by thy sayings thou shalt be justified, and by thy sayings thou shalt be judged.
 10571057 Luke xii. 54.And he said to the multitudes, When ye see the clouds appear from the west,  straightway ye say that there cometh rain; and so it cometh to pass. 10581058 Luke xii. 55.And when  the south wind bloweth, ye say that there will be heat; and it cometh to pass. 10591059 Matt. xvi. 2b.And when the evening is come, ye say, It will be fair weather, for the heaven has become  red. 10601060 Matt. xvi. 3.And in the morning ye say, To-day there will be severe weather, for the redness [Arabic, p. 57] of the heaven is paling. 10611061 Matt. xvi. 4; this is reckoned to verse 3 in the Greek.Ye hypocrites, ye know to examine the face of the heaven and the earth; but the signs of this time ye know not to discern.
 10621062 Matt. xii. 22.Then they brought to him one possessed of a demon, dumb and blind; and he  healed him, so that the dumb and blind began to speak and see. 10631063 Matt. xii. 23.And all the multitudes wondered, and said, Is this, think you, the son of David?
 10641064 Mark vi. 30.And the apostles returned unto Jesus, and told him everything that they had  done and wrought.10651065 Wrought may have arisen from taught by a transcriptional error (transposition of l and m) within the Arabic text. As it appears to occur in both mss., they would seem to have a common origin, which, however, can hardly have been the autograph of the translator. 10661066 Mark vi. 31.And he said unto them, Come, let us go into the desert alone, and rest ye a little. And many were going and returning, and they had not leisure, not even to eat bread.
 10671067 Luke vii. 36.And after that, there came to him one of the Pharisees, and besought him that he would eat bread with him. And he entered into the house of that Pharisee, and  reclined. 10681068 Luke vii. 37.And there was in that city a woman that was a sinner; and when she knew that he was sitting in the house of that Pharisee, she took a box of sweet ointment,  and stood behind him, 10691069 Luke vii. 38.towards his feet, weeping, and began to wet his feet with her tears, and to wipe them with the hair of her head, and to kiss his feet, and  anoint them with the sweet ointment. 10701070 Luke vii. 39.And when that10711071 A comparison with the Syriac text recommends this rendering. Pharisee saw it, who invited him, he thought within himself, and said, This man, if he were a prophet, would know who she is and what is her history: for the woman which touched him was a sinner.
