Book of Matthew: Chapter 18

Vulgate (Latin)King James (English)
18:1 in illa hora accesserunt discipuli ad Iesum dicentes quis putas maior est in regno caelorum18:1 At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?
18:2 et advocans Iesus parvulum statuit eum in medio eorum18:2 And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them,
18:3 et dixit amen dico vobis nisi conversi fueritis et efficiamini sicut parvuli non intrabitis in regnum caelorum18:3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
18:4 quicumque ergo humiliaverit se sicut parvulus iste hic est maior in regno caelorum18:4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
18:5 et qui susceperit unum parvulum talem in nomine meo me suscipit18:5 And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me.
18:6 qui autem scandalizaverit unum de pusillis istis qui in me credunt expedit ei ut suspendatur mola asinaria in collo eius et demergatur in profundum maris18:6 But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.
18:7 vae mundo ab scandalis necesse est enim ut veniant scandala verumtamen vae homini per quem scandalum venit18:7 Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!
18:8 si autem manus tua vel pes tuus scandalizat te abscide eum et proice abs te bonum tibi est ad vitam ingredi debilem vel clodum quam duas manus vel duos pedes habentem mitti in ignem aeternum18:8 Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee, cut them off, and cast them from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire.
18:9 et si oculus tuus scandalizat te erue eum et proice abs te bonum tibi est unoculum in vitam intrare quam duos oculos habentem mitti in gehennam ignis18:9 And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire.
18:10 videte ne contemnatis unum ex his pusillis dico enim vobis quia angeli eorum in caelis semper vident faciem Patris mei qui in caelis est18:10 Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven.
18:11 venit enim Filius hominis salvare quod perierat18:11 For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.
18:12 quid vobis videtur si fuerint alicui centum oves et erraverit una ex eis nonne relinquet nonaginta novem in montibus et vadit quaerere eam quae erravit18:12 How think ye? if a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which is gone astray?
18:13 et si contigerit ut inveniat eam amen dico vobis quia gaudebit super eam magis quam super nonaginta novem quae non erraverunt18:13 And if so be that he find it, verily I say unto you, he rejoiceth more of that sheep, than of the ninety and nine which went not astray.
18:14 sic non est voluntas ante Patrem vestrum qui in caelis est ut pereat unus de pusillis istis18:14 Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish.
18:15 si autem peccaverit in te frater tuus vade et corripe eum inter te et ipsum solum si te audierit lucratus es fratrem tuum18:15 Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother.
18:16 si autem non te audierit adhibe tecum adhuc unum vel duos ut in ore duorum testium vel trium stet omne verbum18:16 But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.
18:17 quod si non audierit eos dic ecclesiae si autem et ecclesiam non audierit sit tibi sicut ethnicus et publicanus18:17 And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as an heathen man and a publican.
18:18 amen dico vobis quaecumque alligaveritis super terram erunt ligata et in caelo et quaecumque solveritis super terram erunt soluta et in caelo18:18 Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
18:19 iterum dico vobis quia si duo ex vobis consenserint super terram de omni re quacumque petierint fiet illis a Patre meo qui in caelis est18:19 Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.
18:20 ubi enim sunt duo vel tres congregati in nomine meo ibi sum in medio eorum18:20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.
18:21 tunc accedens Petrus ad eum dixit Domine quotiens peccabit in me frater meus et dimittam ei usque septies18:21 Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times?
18:22 dicit illi Iesus non dico tibi usque septies sed usque septuagies septies18:22 Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.
18:23 ideo adsimilatum est regnum caelorum homini regi qui voluit rationem ponere cum servis suis18:23 Therefore is the kingdom of heaven likened unto a certain king, which would take account of his servants.
18:24 et cum coepisset rationem ponere oblatus est ei unus qui debebat decem milia talenta18:24 And when he had begun to reckon, one was brought unto him, which owed him ten thousand talents.
18:25 cum autem non haberet unde redderet iussit eum dominus venundari et uxorem eius et filios et omnia quae habebat et reddi18:25 But forasmuch as he had not to pay, his lord commanded him to be sold, and his wife, and children, and all that he had, and payment to be made.
18:26 procidens autem servus ille orabat eum dicens patientiam habe in me et omnia reddam tibi18:26 The servant therefore fell down, and worshipped him, saying, Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay thee all.
18:27 misertus autem dominus servi illius dimisit eum et debitum dimisit ei18:27 Then the lord of that servant was moved with compassion, and loosed him, and forgave him the debt.
18:28 egressus autem servus ille invenit unum de conservis suis qui debebat ei centum denarios et tenens suffocabat eum dicens redde quod debes18:28 But the same servant went out, and found one of his fellowservants, which owed him an hundred pence: and he laid hands on him, and took him by the throat, saying, Pay me that thou owest.
18:29 et procidens conservus eius rogabat eum dicens patientiam habe in me et omnia reddam tibi18:29 And his fellowservant fell down at his feet, and besought him, saying, Have patience with me, and I will pay thee all.
18:30 ille autem noluit sed abiit et misit eum in carcerem donec redderet debitum18:30 And he would not: but went and cast him into prison, till he should pay the debt.
18:31 videntes autem conservi eius quae fiebant contristati sunt valde et venerunt et narraverunt domino suo omnia quae facta erant18:31 So when his fellowservants saw what was done, they were very sorry, and came and told unto their lord all that was done.
18:32 tunc vocavit illum dominus suus et ait illi serve nequam omne debitum dimisi tibi quoniam rogasti me18:32 Then his lord, after that he had called him, said unto him, O thou wicked servant, I forgave thee all that debt, because thou desiredst me:
18:33 non ergo oportuit et te misereri conservi tui sicut et ego tui misertus sum18:33 Shouldest not thou also have had compassion on thy fellowservant, even as I had pity on thee?
18:34 et iratus dominus eius tradidit eum tortoribus quoadusque redderet universum debitum18:34 And his lord was wroth, and delivered him to the tormentors, till he should pay all that was due unto him.
18:35 sic et Pater meus caelestis faciet vobis si non remiseritis unusquisque fratri suo de cordibus vestris18:35 So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses.
