The Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ,
According to St. Matthew

<=  Chapter 18  =>

18:1 At that hour the disciples came to Jesus, saying: Who, thinkest thou, is the greater in the kingdom of heaven?
in illa hora accesserunt discipuli ad Iesum dicentes quis putas maior est in regno caelorum

18:2 And Jesus calling unto him a little child, set him in the midst of them,
et advocans Iesus parvulum statuit eum in medio eorum

18:3 And said: Amen I say to you, unless you be converted, and become as little children, you shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
et dixit amen dico vobis nisi conversi fueritis et efficiamini sicut parvuli non intrabitis in regnum caelorum

18:4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, he is the greater in the kingdom of heaven.
quicumque ergo humiliaverit se sicut parvulus iste hic est maior in regno caelorum

18:5 And he that shall receive one such little child in my name, receiveth me.
et qui susceperit unum parvulum talem in nomine meo me suscipit

18:6 But he that shall scandalize one of these little ones that believe in me, it were better for him that a mill-stone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.
qui autem scandalizaverit unum de pusillis istis qui in me credunt expedit ei ut suspendatur mola asinaria in collo eius et demergatur in profundum maris

18:7 Wo to the world because of scandals. For it must needs be that scandals come: but, nevertheless wo to that man by whom the scandal cometh.
vae mundo ab scandalis necesse est enim ut veniant scandala verumtamen vae homini per quem scandalum venit

18:8 And if thy hand or thy foot scandalize thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee. It is better for thee to enter into life maimed or lame, than having two hands or two feet, to be cast into everlasting fire.
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 aeternum

18:9 And if thy eye scandalize thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee. It is better for thee having one eye to enter into life, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire.
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 ignis

18:10 Take heed that you despise not one of these little ones: for I say to you, that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father who is in heaven.
videte ne contemnatis unum ex his pusillis dico enim vobis quia angeli eorum in caelis semper vident faciem Patris mei qui in caelis est

18:11 For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.
venit enim Filius hominis salvare quod perierat

18:12 What think you? If a man have a hundred sheep, and one of them should go astray; doth he not leave the ninety-nine in the mountains, and go to seek that which is gone astray?
quid vobis videtur si fuerint alicui centum oves et erraverit una ex eis nonne relinquet nonaginta novem in montibus et vadit quaerere eam quae erravit

18:13 And if it be so that he find it, amen, I say to you, he rejoiceth more for that than for the ninety-nine that went not astray.
et si contigerit ut inveniat eam amen dico vobis quia gaudebit super eam magis quam super nonaginta novem quae non erraverunt

18:14 Even so it is not the will of your Father, who is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish.
sic non est voluntas ante Patrem vestrum qui in caelis est ut pereat unus de pusillis istis

18:15 But if thy brother shall offend against thee, go, and reprove him between thee and him alone. If he shall hear thee, thou shalt gain thy brother.
si autem peccaverit in te frater tuus vade et corripe eum inter te et ipsum solum si te audierit lucratus es fratrem tuum

18:16 But if he will not hear thee, take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may stand.
si autem non te audierit adhibe tecum adhuc unum vel duos ut in ore duorum testium vel trium stet omne verbum

18:17 And if he will not hear them: tell the church. And if he will not hear the church, let him be to thee as the heathen and the publican.
quod si non audierit eos dic ecclesiae si autem et ecclesiam non audierit sit tibi sicut ethnicus et publicanus

18:18 Amen, I say to you, whatsoever you shall bind upon earth, shall be bound also in heaven: and whatsoever you shall loose upon earth, shall be loosed also in heaven.
amen dico vobis quaecumque alligaveritis super terram erunt ligata et in caelo et quaecumque solveritis super terram erunt soluta et in caelo

18:19 Again I say to you, that if two of you shall agree upon earth, concerning any thing whatsoever they shall ask, it shall be done for them by my Father, who is in heaven.
iterum dico vobis quia si duo ex vobis consenserint super terram de omni re quacumque petierint fiet illis a Patre meo qui in caelis est

18:20 For where there are two or three gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.
ubi enim sunt duo vel tres congregati in nomine meo ibi sum in medio eorum

18:21 Then Peter came unto him, and said: Lord, how often shall my brother offend against me, and I forgive him? Till seven times?
tunc accedens Petrus ad eum dixit Domine quotiens peccabit in me frater meus et dimittam ei usque septies

18:22 Jesus saith to him: I say not to thee, till seven times; but till seventy times seven:
dicit illi Iesus non dico tibi usque septies sed usque septuagies septies

18:23 Therefore is the kingdom of heaven likened to a king, who would take an account of his servants.
ideo adsimilatum est regnum caelorum homini regi qui voluit rationem ponere cum servis suis

18:24 And when he had begun to take the account, one was brought to him, that owed him ten thousand talents.
et cum coepisset rationem ponere oblatus est ei unus qui debebat decem milia talenta

18:25 And as he had not wherewith to pay it, his lord commanded that he should be sold, and his wife and children, and all that he had, and payment be made.
cum autem non haberet unde redderet iussit eum dominus venundari et uxorem eius et filios et omnia quae habebat et reddi

18:26 But that servant falling down, besought him, saying: Have patience with me, and I will pay thee all.
procidens autem servus ille orabat eum dicens patientiam habe in me et omnia reddam tibi

18:27 And the lord of that servant being moved with pity, let him go, and forgave him the debt.
misertus autem dominus servi illius dimisit eum et debitum dimisit ei

18:28 But when that servant was gone out, he found one of his fellow-servants that owed him an hundred pence: and laying hold of him, he throttled him, saying: Pay what thou owest.
egressus autem servus ille invenit unum de conservis suis qui debebat ei centum denarios et tenens suffocabat eum dicens redde quod debes

18:29 And his fellow-servant falling down, besought him, saying: Have patience with me, and I will pay thee all.
et procidens conservus eius rogabat eum dicens patientiam habe in me et omnia reddam tibi

18:30 And he would not: but went and cast him into prison, till he should pay the debt.
ille autem noluit sed abiit et misit eum in carcerem donec redderet debitum

18:31 Now his fellow-servants seeing what was done, were very much grieved, and they came, and told their lord all that was done.
videntes autem conservi eius quae fiebant contristati sunt valde et venerunt et narraverunt domino suo omnia quae facta erant

18:32 Then his lord called him: and said to him: Thou wicked servant, I forgave thee all the debt, because thou besoughtest me.
tunc vocavit illum dominus suus et ait illi serve nequam omne debitum dimisi tibi quoniam rogasti me

18:33 Shouldst not thou then have had compassion also on thy fellow-servant, even as I had compassion on thee?
non ergo oportuit et te misereri conservi tui sicut et ego tui misertus sum

18:34 And his lord being angry, delivered him to the torturers until he should paid all the debt.
et iratus dominus eius tradidit eum tortoribus quoadusque redderet universum debitum

18:35 So also shall my heavenly Father do to you, if you forgive not every one his brother from your hearts.
sic et Pater meus caelestis faciet vobis si non remiseritis unusquisque fratri suo de cordibus vestris
