Chapter 16

Matt. 16:1 The Pharisees also with the Sadducees came, and tempting Him desired that He would show them a sign from heaven.

Matt. 16:2 He answered and said to them, when it is evening, you say, it will be fair weather: for the sky is red.

Matt. 16:3 And in the morning, it will be foul weather today: for the sky is red and threatening. O you hypocrites, you can discern the face of the sky; but you can’t discern the signs of the times?

Matt. 16:4 A wicked and adulterous generation seeks after a sign; and there will be no sign given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonah. So He left them, and departed.

Matt. 16:5 When His disciples had come to the other side, they had forgotten to take bread.

Matt. 16:6 Then Jesus said to them, take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.

Matt. 16:7 Then they reasoned among themselves, saying, it is because we have taken no bread.

Matt. 16:8 Which when Jesus perceived, He said to them, O you of little faith, why reason you among yourselves, because you have brought no bread?

Matt. 16:9 Do you not yet understand, neither remember the five loaves of the five thousand, and how many baskets were left?

Matt. 16:10 Neither the seven loaves of the four thousand and how many baskets were left?

Matt. 16:11 How is it that you do not understand that I spoke to you not concerning bread, but that you should beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees?

Matt. 16:12 Then they understood how He told them not to beware of the leaven of bread, but the teaching of the Pharisees and the Sadducees.

Matt. 16:13 When Jesus came into the borders of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, and said, who do men say that I, the Son of man, am?

Matt. 16:14 Then they said, some say that You are John the Immerser: some, Elijah; and others, Jeremiah, or one of the prophets.

Matt. 16:15 He said to them, but who say you that I am?

Matt. 16:16 Simon Peter answered and said, You are the Christ, the Son of the living God!

Matt. 16:17 Jesus answered and said to him, blessed are you, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood has not revealed it to you, but My Father who is in heaven.

Matt. 16:18 And I say also to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My assembly; and the gates of unseen realm will not prevail against it.

Matt. 16:19 And I will give to you the keys of the kingdom of the heavens: and whatever you will bind on earth will be bound in heaven: and whatever you will loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.

Matt. 16:20 Then He charged His disciples that they should tell no man that He was Jesus the Christ.

Matt. 16:21 From that time Jesus began to show to His disciples, how He must go to Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day.

Matt. 16:22 Then Peter took Him, and began to rebuke Him, saying, be it far from you, Lord: this will not happen to You.

Matt. 16:23 But He turned, and said to Peter, get you behind Me, Satan: you are an offense to Me: for you cherish not the things that be of God, but those that be of men.

Matt. 16:24 Then said Jesus to His disciples, if any man will come after Me, let him deny Himself, and take up His cross, and follow Me.

Matt. 16:25 For whoever will save his life will lose it: and whoever will lose his life for My sake will find it.

Matt. 16:26 For what does a man profit, if he will gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?

Matt. 16:27 For the Son of man is about to come in the glory of His Father with His angels; and then He will recompense every man according to his works.

Matt. 16:28 Truly I say to you, there are some standing here, who will not taste of death, until they are perceiving the Son of man coming in His kingdom.
