Matthew 16


The Pharisees and Sadducees Test Jesus

1And having come forward, the Pharisees and Sadducees testing, asked him [2a sign 3from out of 4the 5heaven 1to display] to them. 2And he answering said to them, Evening having become, you say, Fair weather; [4is fiery red 1for 2the 3heaven]. 3And at morning, Today it will be distressful; [5is fiery red 1for 4being gloomy 2the 3heaven]. Hypocrites, forasmuch as the face of the heaven you know to examine, but the signs of the times you are not able. 4[3generation 1A wicked 2adulterous 5a sign 4seeks anxiously]; and a sign shall not be given it, except the sign of Jonah the prophet. And leaving them behind, he went forth. 5And [2having come 1his disciples] unto the other side forgot [2bread loaves 1to take]. 6 And Jesus said to them, See! and take heed from the yeast of the Pharisees and Sadducees! 7And they were arguing among themselves, saying that, [2bread loaves 1We did not take]. 8And knowing, Jesus said to them, Why are you arguing among yourselves, O ones of little belief, that [2bread loaves 1you did not take]? 9Not yet do you comprehend, nor remember the five bread loaves of the five thousand, and how many hampers you took up? 10Nor the seven bread loaves of the four thousand, and how many baskets you took up? 11How do you not comprehend that it is not concerning bread I spoke to you to take heed from the yeast of the Pharisees and Sadducees? 12Then they perceived that he did not say to take heed of the yeast of the bread loaf, but of the teaching of the Pharisees and Sadducees.

Jesus the Christ

13[3having come 1And 2Jesus] into the parts of Caesarea of Philippi asked his disciples, saying, Who [4me 1do 3say 2men 8to be 5the 6son 7of man]? 14And they said, Some John the Baptist, and others Elijah, and others Jeremiah, or one of the prophets. 15He says to them, And you, who do you say me to be? 16And answering Simon Peter said, You are the Christ, the son of the [2God 1living]. 17And responding Jesus said to him, Blessed are you Simon Bar Jonah; for flesh and blood did not reveal it to you, but my father, the one in the heavens. 18And I say unto you, that you are Peter, and upon this, the rock, I will build my assembly, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it. 19And I will give to you the keys of the kingdom of the heavens; and whatever you should have bound upon the earth, it shall be have been bound in the heavens; and what ever you should have untied upon the earth, it shall have been untied in the heavens. 20Then he gave orders to his disciples that not one shall say that he is Jesus the Christ.

Jesus Foretells His Death

21From then Jesus began to show to his disciples that it is necessary for him to go forth unto Jerusalem, and [2much 1to suffer] from the elders and chief priests and scribes, and to be killed, and in the third day to be risen. 22And [2taking him by himself 1Peter] began reproaching to him, saying, Kindness to you O Lord, in no way will [2be 3to you 1this]. 23And having turned he said to Peter, Get away behind me, Satan! [2my obstacle 1you are], for you do not think the things of God, but the things of men. 24Then Jesus said to his disciples, If any wants [2after 3me 1to come], let him totally reject himself, and lift his cross, and follow me! 25For who ever should want [2his life 1to preserve], will lose it. But who ever should lose his life because of me, shall find it. 26For what benefits a man if the [2world 1entire] he should gain, but his soul should suffer loss? Or what [2will 4give 3a man 1bargain] for his soul? 27[5is about 1For 2the 3son 4of man] to come in the glory of his father with his angels; and then he shall recompense each according to his actions. 28Amen I say to you, there are some of the ones here standing, the ones who in no way shall taste death, until whenever they should behold the son of man coming in his kingdom.
