16:1 The Pharisees also and the Sadducees came, and, tempting,
desired him that he would show them a sign from heaven.
16:2 He answered and said to them, When it is evening, ye say,
[It will be] fair weather: for the sky is red.
16:3 And in the morning, [It will be] foul weather to-day: for
the sky is red and lowering. O [ye] hypocrites, ye can discern
the face of the sky; but can ye not [discern] the signs of the
16:4 A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh for a sign; and
there shall no sign been to it, but the sign of the prophet
Jonah. And he left them, and departed.
16:5 And when his disciples had come to the other side, they had
forgotten to take bread.
16:6 Then Jesus said to them, Take heed and beware of the leaven
of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.
16:7 And they reasoned among themselves, saying, [It is] because
we have taken no bread.
16:8 [Which] when Jesus perceived, he said to them, O ye of
little faith, why reason ye among yourselves, because ye have
brought no bread?
16:9 Do ye not yet understand, neither remember the five loaves
of the five thousand, and how many baskets ye took up?
16:10 Neither the seven loaves of the four thousand, and how
many baskets ye took up?
16:11 How is it that ye do not understand that I spoke not to
you concerning bread, that ye should beware of the leaven of
the Pharisees and of the Sadducees?
16:12 Then they understood that he did not caution them against
the leaven of bread, but against the doctrine of the Pharisees
and of the Sadducees.
16:13 When Jesus came into the borders of Cesarea Phillippi, he
asked his disciples, saying, Who do men say that I the Son of
16:14 And they said, Some [say that thou art] John the Baptist:
some Elijah; and others, Jeremiah, or one of the prophets.
16:15 He saith to them, But who say ye that I am?
16:16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ,
the Son of the living God.
16:17 And Jesus answered and said to him, Blessed art thou,
Simon-Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed [it] to
thee, but my Father who is in heaven.
16:18 And I say also to thee, that thou art Peter, and upon this
rock I will build my church: and the gates of hell shall not
prevail against it.
16:19 And I will give to thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven:
and whatever thou shalt bind on earth, shall be bound in
heaven; and whatever thou shalt loose on earth, shall be loosed
16:20 Then he charged his disciples that they should tell no man
that he was Jesus the Christ.
16:21 From that time forth Jesus began to show to his disciples,
that he must go to Jerusalem, and suffer many things from the
elders and chief priests, and scribes, and be killed, and be
raised again the third day.
16:22 Then Peter took him, and began to rebuke him, saying, Be
it far from thee, Lord: this shall not be to thee.
16:23 But he turned, and said to Peter, Get thee behind me,
Satan; thou art an offense to me: for thou savorest not the
things that are of God, but those that are of men.
16:24 Then said Jesus to his disciples, If any [man] will come
after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and
16:25 For whoever will save his life, shall lose it: and whoever
will lose his life for my sake, shall find it.
16:26 For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole
world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in
exchange for his soul?
16:27 For the Son of man will come in the glory of his Father,
with his angels; and then he will reward every man according to
16:28 Verily I say to you, There are some standing here, who
shall not taste death, till they shall see the Son of man
coming in his kingdom.
