[1] 21202120    Mark x. 41.And when the ten heard, they were moved with anger against James and John.  [2] 21212121    Mark x. 42.And Jesus called them, and said unto them, Ye know that the rulers of the nations 91[3] are their lords; and their great men are set in authority over them.  21222122    Mark x. 43.Not thus shall it [Arabic, p. 118] be amongst you:  but he amongst you that would be great, let him be to you a [4] servant; 21232123    Mark x. 44.and whoever of you would be first,21242124    Lit. advanced. let him be to every man a [5] bond-servant:  21252125    Matt. xx. 28.even as the Son of man also came not to be served, but to serve, and [6] to give himself a ransom in place of the many.  21262126    Luke xiii. 22.He said this, and was going about [7] the villages and the cities, and teaching; and he went to Jerusalem.  21272127    Luke xiii. 23.And a man asked him, Are those that shall be saved few?  Jesus answered and said unto [8] them, Strive ye to enter at the narrow door:  21282128    Luke xiii. 24.I say unto you now, that many shall [9] seek to enter, and shall not be able21292129    Lit. find, like the Syriac.21302130    Luke xiii. 25.from the time when the master of the house riseth, and closeth the door, and ye shall be standing without, and shall knock at the door, and shall begin to say, Our lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and [10] say, I say unto you, I know you not whence ye are:  21312131    Luke xiii. 26.and ye shall begin to say, [11] Before thee we did eat and drink, and in our markets didst thou teach; 21322132    Luke xiii. 27.and he shall say unto you, I know you not whence ye are; depart21332133    This rendering requires the omission of the diacritical point over the middle radical.  The text as printed means perish. from me, ye servants [12] of untruth.  21342134    Luke xiii. 28.There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, while ye are [13] put forth without.  21352135    Luke xiii. 29.And they shall come from the east and the west, and from the [14] north and the south, and shall sit down in the kingdom of God.  21362136    Luke xiii. 30.And there shall then be last that have become first, and first that have become last.

[15, 16] 21372137    Luke xix. 1.And when Jesus entered and passed through Jericho, 21382138    Luke xix. 2.there was a man named Zacchæus, [17] rich, and chief of the publicans.  21392139    Luke xix. 3.And he desired to see Jesus who he was; and he was not able for the pressure of the crowd, because Zacchæus was little of stature.  [18] [Arabic, p. 119] 21402140    Luke xix. 4.And he hastened, and went before Jesus, and went up into an unripe fig [19] tree21412141    cf. the extract from Isho‘dad (Harris, Fragments, p. 19). to see Jesus:  for he was to pass thus.  21422142    Luke xix. 5.And when Jesus came to that place, he saw him, and said unto him, Make haste, and come down, Zacchæus:  [20] to-day I must be in thy house.  21432143    Luke xix. 6.And he hastened, and came down, and received [21] him joyfully.  21442144    Luke xix. 7.And when they all saw, they murmured, and said, He hath gone in [22] and lodged with a man that is a sinner.  21452145    Luke xix. 8.So Zacchæus stood, and said unto Jesus, My Lord, now half of my possessions I give to the poor, and what I have unjustly [23] taken21462146    A diacritical point must be restored to the second letter of this word.  As it stands it gives no sense. from every man I give him fourfold.  21472147    Luke xix. 9.Jesus said unto him, Today is salvation [24] come to this house, because this man also is a21482148    Lit. the. son of Abraham.  21492149    Luke xix. 10.For the Son of man came to seek and save the thing that was lost.
