Matthew 22 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
22 And Jesus answered and spoke unto them again in parables and said,
2 “The Kingdom of Heaven is like unto a certain king, who made a marriage for his son.
3 And he sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding, and they would not come.
4 Again he sent forth other servants, saying, ‘Tell them that are bidden, “Behold, I have prepared my dinner; my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready. Come unto the marriage.”’
5 But they made light of it and went their ways, one to his farm, and another to his merchandise,
6 and the remnant took his servants and treated them spitefully and slew them.
7 But when the king heard thereof he was wroth, and he sent forth his armies and destroyed those murderers and burned up their city.
8 Then said he to his servants, ‘The wedding is ready, but they that were bidden were not worthy.
9 Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage.’
10 So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered all together as many as they found, both bad and good, and the wedding was furnished with guests.
11 And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man who did not have on a wedding garment.
12 And he said unto him, ‘Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment?’ And he was speechless.
13 Then said the king to the servants, ‘Bind him hand and foot and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’
14 For many are called, but few are chosen.”
15 Then the Pharisees went and took counsel how they might entangle Him in His talk.
16 And they sent out unto Him their disciples with the Herodians, saying, “Master, we know that thou art true and teachest the way of God in truth; neither carest thou for any man, for thou regardest not the person of men.
17 Tell us therefore, what thinkest thou? Is it lawful to give tribute unto Caesar, or not?”
18 But Jesus perceived their wickedness and said, “Why tempt ye Me, ye hypocrites?
19 Show Me the tribute money.” And they brought unto Him a penny.
20 And He said unto them, “Whose is this image and superscription?”
21 And they said unto Him, “Caesar’s.” Then said He unto them, “Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s, and unto God the things that are God’s.”
22 When they had heard these words, they marveled, and left Him and went their way.
23 The same day the Sadducees, who say that there is no resurrection, came to Him and asked Him,
24 saying, “Master, Moses said, ‘If a man die, having no children, his brother shall marry his wife and raise up seed unto his brother.’
25 Now there were with us seven brethren. And the first, when he had married a wife, died; and having no issue, he left his wife unto his brother.
26 Likewise the second also, and the third, unto the seventh.
27 And last of all, the woman died also.
28 Therefore in the resurrection, whose wife shall she be of the seven? For they all had her.”
29 Jesus answered and said unto them, “Ye do err, not knowing the Scriptures, nor the power of God.
30 For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in Heaven.
31 But concerning the resurrection of the dead, have ye not read that which was spoken unto you by God, saying,
32 ‘I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob’? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living.”
33 And when the multitude heard this, they were astonished at His doctrine.
34 But when the Pharisees had heard that He had put the Sadducees to silence, they were gathered together.
35 Then one of them, who was a lawyer, asked Him a question, tempting Him and saying,
36 “Master, which is the great commandment in the law?”
37 Jesus said unto him, “‘Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.’
38 This is the first and great commandment.
39 And the second is like unto it: ‘Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.’
40 On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.”
41 While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them,
42 saying, “What think ye of Christ? Whose Son is He?” They said unto Him, “The son of David.”
43 He said unto them, “How then doth David in the Spirit call Him ‘Lord,’ saying,
44 ‘The Lord said unto my Lord, “Sit Thou on My right hand until I make Thine enemies Thy footstool”’?
45 If David then call Him ‘Lord,’ how is He his son?”
46 And no man was able to answer Him a word; neither dared any man from that day forth ask Him any more questions.
Mark 12 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
12 And He began to speak unto them by parables: “A certain man planted a vineyard, and set a hedge about it, and dug a place for the wine vat, and built a watchtower; and he leased it out to husbandmen and went into a far country.
2 And at the harvest season he sent to the husbandmen a servant, that he might receive from the husbandmen of the fruit of the vineyard.
3 And they caught him, and beat him, and sent him away empty.
4 And again he sent unto them another servant, and at him they cast stones, and wounded him in the head, and sent him away shamefully handled.
5 And again he sent another, and him they killed, and many others, beating some and killing some.
6 Having yet therefore one son, his wellbeloved, he sent him also last unto them, saying, ‘They will reverence my son.’
7 But those husbandmen said among themselves, ‘This is the heir. Come, let us kill him, and the inheritance shall be ours.’
8 And they took him and killed him, and cast him out of the vineyard.
9 What therefore shall the lord of the vineyard do? He will come and destroy the husbandmen, and will give the vineyard unto others.
10 And have ye not read this Scripture? ‘The stone which the builders rejected has become the head of the corner;
11 this was the Lord’s doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes.’”
12 And they sought to lay hold on Him, but they feared the people, for they knew that He had spoken the parable against them. And they left Him, and went their way.
13 And they sent unto Him certain of the Pharisees and of the Herodians to catch Him in His words.
14 And when they had come, they said unto Him, “Master, we know that thou art true and carest for no man; for thou regardest not the person of men, but teachest the way of God in truth. Is it lawful to give tribute to Caesar, or not?
15 Shall we give, or shall we not give?” But He, knowing their hypocrisy, said unto them, “Why tempt ye Me? Bring Me a penny, that I may see it.”
16 And they brought it, and He said unto them, “Whose image and superscription is this?” And they said unto Him, “Caesar’s.”
17 And Jesus answering, said unto them, “Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.” And they marveled at Him.
18 Then came unto Him the Sadducees, who say that there is no resurrection. And they asked Him, saying,
19 “Master, Moses wrote unto us that if a man’s brother die, and leave his wife behind him, and leave no children, then his brother should take his wife and raise up seed unto his brother.
20 Now there were seven brethren; and the first took a wife, and dying, left no seed.
21 And the second took her and died, neither leaving any seed. And the third likewise.
22 So the seven had her and left no seed. Last of all the woman died also.
23 In the resurrection therefore, when they shall rise, whose wife shall she be, for all seven had her for a wife?”
24 And Jesus answering, said unto them, “Do ye not therefore err, because ye know not the Scriptures, neither the power of God?
25 For when they shall rise from the dead, they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels who are in Heaven.
26 And concerning the dead, that they rise: have ye not read in the book of Moses, how in the bush God spoke unto him, saying, ‘I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob’?
27 He is not the God of the dead, but the God of the living. Ye therefore do greatly err.”
28 And one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, and perceiving that He had answered them well, asked Him, “Which is the first commandment of all?”
29 And Jesus answered him, “The first of all the commandments is: ‘Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God is one Lord.
30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength;’ this is the first commandment.
31 And the second is like, namely this: ‘Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.”
32 And the scribe said unto Him, “Well, Master, thou hast said the truth, for there is one God, and there is none other than He.
33 And to love Him with all the heart, with all the understanding, with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love his neighbor as himself, is more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices.”
34 And when Jesus saw that he answered discreetly, He said unto him, “Thou art not far from the Kingdom of God.” And no man after that dared ask Him any question.
35 And Jesus answered and said, while He taught in the temple, “How say the scribes that Christ is the Son of David?
36 For David himself said by the Holy Ghost: ‘The Lord said to my Lord, “Sit Thou at My right hand until I make Thine enemies Thy footstool.”’
37 David therefore himself calleth Him ‘Lord’; and whence is He then his son?” And the common people heard Him gladly.
38 And He said unto them in His doctrine, “Beware of the scribes, who love to go in long clothing, and love salutations in the marketplaces,
39 and the chief seats in the synagogues, and the uppermost rooms at feasts,
40 who devour widows’ houses, and for a pretense make long prayers: these shall receive greater damnation.”
41 And Jesus sat opposite the treasury, and beheld how the people cast money into the treasury. And many who were rich cast in much.
42 And there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in two mites, which make a farthing.
43 And He called unto Him His disciples and said unto them, “Verily I say unto you, that this poor widow hath cast more in than all they that have cast into the treasury;
44 for they all cast in of their abundance, but she of her want cast in all that she had, even all her living.”
