Bible4 “Tell us, by what authority”

The Annunciation of Luke the Evangelist – Chapter 20

1 And on one of those days, as he was teaching the people in the temple, and preaching, the chief priests and Scribes, with the Elders, came upon him,

2 and said to him:
Tell us, by what authority thou doest these things? And who is it, that gave thee this authority?
3 Jesus answered, and said to them:
I also will ask you a word, and tell ye me.
4 The baptism of John, was it from heaven, or from men ?
5 And they reasoned with themselves, and said:
If we say, From heaven; he will say to us, And why did ye not believe him?
6 But if we say, From men; all the people will stone us; for they are persuaded that John was a prophet.
7 And they said to him:
We do not know, whence it was.
8 Jesus said to them:
Neither do I tell you, by what authority I do these things.
9 And he began to utter this similitude to the people:
A certain man planted a vineyard, and leased it to cultivators, and went abroad for a long time.
10 And in time, he sent his servant to the cultivators, that they might give him of the fruits of the vineyard. But the cultivators beat him, and sent him away empty.
11 And again he sent another servant; and him also they beat, and treated with rudeness, and sent empty away.
12 And again he sent the third. And they wounded him, and cast him out.
13 The lord of the vineyard said:
What shall I do? I will send my dear son. Perhaps they will look upon him, and be ashamed.
14 But when the cultivators saw him, they reasoned with themselves, and said:
This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and the inheritance will be ours.
15 And they cast him out of the vineyard, and slew him. What therefore will the lord of the vineyard do to them ?
16 He will come, and destroy those cultivators, and will lease the vineyard to others. And when they heard [it], they said:
This shall not be.
17 And he looked upon them, and said:
What is that which is written, The stone, which the builders rejected, is become the chief corner stone ?
18 And whoever shall fall upon this stone, will be broken; and on whomsoever it shall fall, it will crush him in pieces.
19 And the chief priests and Scribes sought to lay hands on him, at that time; but they were afraid of the people; for they knew, that he spoke this similitude against them.
20 And they sent to him spies, who feigned themselves righteous men, that they might insnare him in discourse, and deliver him up to a court, and to the authority of the president.
21 And they questioned him, and said to him:
Teacher, we know that thou speakest and teachest correctly, and hast no respect of persons, but teachest the way of God in truth.
22 Is it lawful for us to pay head-money to Caesar, or not?
23 But he perceived their craftiness, and said:
Why tempt ye me?
24 Show me a denarius. Whose is this image and superscription upon it?
They said to him, Caesar’s.
25 Jesus said to them:
Then, give to Caesar what is Caesar’s, and to God what is God’s.
26 And they could not catch from him a word [of accusation] before the people:
and they were surprised at his answers, and were silent.
27 And some of the Sadducees, who say there is no resurrection, came and questioned him,
28 and said to him:
Teacher, Moses wrote to us, that if a man’s brother die, who had a wife without children, his [surviving] brother shall take his wife, and raise up seed to his [deceased] brother.
29 Now, there were seven brothers; and the first took a wife, and died without children.
30 And the second took her to wife; and he died without children.
31 And again, the third took her, and in like manner also all the seven; and they died, and left no children.
32 At last, the woman likewise died.
33 In the resurrection, therefore, of which of them will she be the wife, for the seven took her?
34 Jesus said to them:
The children of this world take wives, and wives are given to husbands.
35 But they who are worthy of that world, and of the resurrection from the dead, do not take wives, nor are wives given to husbands.
36 Neither can they die any more; for they are as the angels, and are the children of God, because they are children of the resurrection.
37 But that the dead will arise, even Moses showed; for, at the bush, he maketh mention, while he saith:
The Lord, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.
38 Now God is not [the God] of the dead, but of the living; for they all live to him.
39 And some of the Scribes answered, and said to him:
Teacher, thou hast spoken well.
40 And they did not again venture to question him, on any matter.
41 And he said also to them:
How do the Scribes say of Messiah, that he is the son of David?
42 And David himself said, in the book of Psalms:
The Lord said to my Lord, seat thyself at my right hand,
43 until I shall place thy foes under thy feet.
44 If David, therefore, called him, My Lord; how is he his son?
45 And while all the people heard, he said to his disciples:
46 Beware of the Scribes, who choose to walk in long robes, and love a salutation in the streets, and the chief seats in the synagogues, and the chief couches at suppers:
47 who eat up the houses of widows, under pretence that they prolong their prayers. They will receive a greater condemnation.
Prayer of Azariah 1
1 And they walked in the midst of the fire, praising God, and blessing the Lord.
2 Then Azarias stood up, and prayed on this manner; and opening his mouth in the midst of the fire said,
3 Blessed art thou, O Lord God of our fathers: thy name is worthy to be praised and glorified for evermore:
4 For thou art righteous in all the things that thou hast done to us: yea, true are all thy works, thy ways are right, and all thy judgments truth.
5 In all the things that thou hast brought upon us, and upon the holy city of our fathers, even Jerusalem, thou hast executed true judgment: for according to truth and judgment didst thou bring all these things upon us because of our sins.
6 For we have sinned and committed iniquity, departing from thee.
7 In all things have we trespassed, and not obeyed thy commandments, nor kept them, neither done as thou hast commanded us, that it might go well with us.
8 Wherefore all that thou hast brought upon us, and every thing that thou hast done to us, thou hast done in true judgment.
9 And thou didst deliver us into the hands of lawless enemies, most hateful forsakers of God, and to an unjust king, and the most wicked in all the world.
10 And now we cannot open our mouths, we are become a shame and reproach to thy servants; and to them that worship thee.
11 Yet deliver us not up wholly, for thy name’s sake, neither disannul thou thy covenant:
12 And cause not thy mercy to depart from us, for thy beloved Abraham’s sake, for thy servant Isaac’s sake, and for thy holy Israel’s sake;
13 To whom thou hast spoken and promised, that thou wouldest multiply their seed as the stars of heaven, and as the sand that lieth upon the seashore.
14 For we, O Lord, are become less than any nation, and be kept under this day in all the world because of our sins.
15 Neither is there at this time prince, or prophet, or leader, or burnt offering, or sacrifice, or oblation, or incense, or place to sacrifice before thee, and to find mercy.
16 Nevertheless in a contrite heart and an humble spirit let us be accepted.
17 Like as in the burnt offerings of rams and bullocks, and like as in ten thousands of fat lambs: so let our sacrifice be in thy sight this day, and grant that we may wholly go after thee: for they shall not be confounded that put their trust in thee.
18 And now we follow thee with all our heart, we fear thee, and seek thy face.
19 Put us not to shame: but deal with us after thy lovingkindness, and according to the multitude of thy mercies.
20 Deliver us also according to thy marvellous works, and give glory to thy name, O Lord: and let all them that do thy servants hurt be ashamed;
21 And let them be confounded in all their power and might, and let their strength be broken;
22 And let them know that thou art God, the only God, and glorious over the whole world.
23 And the king’s servants, that put them in, ceased not to make the oven hot with rosin, pitch, tow, and small wood;
24 So that the flame streamed forth above the furnace forty and nine cubits.
25 And it passed through, and burned those Chaldeans it found about the furnace.
26 But the angel of the Lord came down into the oven together with Azarias and his fellows, and smote the flame of the fire out of the oven;
27 And made the midst of the furnace as it had been a moist whistling wind, so that the fire touched them not at all, neither hurt nor troubled them.
28 Then the three, as out of one mouth, praised, glorified, and blessed, God in the furnace, saying,
29 Blessed art thou, O Lord God of our fathers: and to be praised and exalted above all for ever.
30 And blessed is thy glorious and holy name: and to be praised and exalted above all for ever.
31 Blessed art thou in the temple of thine holy glory: and to be praised and glorified above all for ever.
32 Blessed art thou that beholdest the depths, and sittest upon the cherubims: and to be praised and exalted above all for ever.
33 Blessed art thou on the glorious throne of thy kingdom: and to be praised and glorified above all for ever.
34 Blessed art thou in the firmament of heaven: and above ail to be praised and glorified for ever.

61 O Israel, bless ye the Lord: praise and exalt him above all for ever.
62 O ye priests of the Lord, bless ye the Lord: praise and exalt him above all for ever.
63 O ye servants of the Lord, bless ye the Lord: praise and exalt him above all for ever.
64 O ye spirits and souls of the righteous, bless ye the Lord: praise and exalt him above all for ever.
65 O ye holy and humble men of heart, bless ye the Lord: praise and exalt him above all for ever.
66 O Ananias, Azarias, and Misael, bless ye the Lord: praise and exalt him above all for ever: far he hath delivered us from hell, and saved us from the hand of death, and delivered us out of the midst of the furnace and burning flame: even out of the midst of the fire hath he delivered us.
67 O give thanks unto the Lord, because he is gracious: for his mercy endureth for ever.
68 O all ye that worship the Lord, bless the God of gods, praise him, and give him thanks: for his mercy endureth for ever.
