God, Who names Himself your Father, compassionately answers unspoken prayers:
 
Matthew 9:21-22
    21For she kept saying to herself, If I only touch His [Jesus’] garment, I shall be restored to health.
    22Jesus turned around and, seeing her, He said, Take courage, daughter! Your faith has made you well. And at once the woman was restored to health.
 
Matthew 9:28-29
    28When He reached the house and went in, the blind men came to Him, and Jesus said to them, Do you believe that I AM able to do this? They said to Him, Yes, Lord.
    29Then He touched their eyes, saying, According to your faith and trust and reliance [on the power invested in Me] be it done to you;
 
Matthew 9:35-38
    35And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the good news (the Gospel) of the kingdom and curing all kinds of disease and every weakness and infirmity.
    36When He saw the throngs, He was moved with pity [compassion] and sympathy for them, because they were bewildered (harassed and distressed and dejected and helpless), like sheep without a shepherd.
    37Then He said to His disciples, The harvest is indeed plentiful, but the laborers are few.
    38So pray to the Lord of the harvest to send laborers into His harvest.
 
Matthew 10:7-8
    7And as you go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand!
    8Cure the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, drive out demons. Freely (without pay) you have received, freely (without charge) give.
 
Matthew 10:29-31
    29Are not two little sparrows sold for a penny? And yet not one of them will fall to the ground without your Father's leave (consent) and notice.
    30But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered.
    31Fear not, then; you are of more value than many sparrows.
 
Matthew 10:40-42
    40He who receives and welcomes and accepts you receives and welcomes and accepts Me, and he who receives and welcomes and accepts Me receives and welcomes and accepts Him Who sent Me.
    41He who receives and welcomes and accepts a prophet because he is a prophet shall receive a prophet's reward, and he who receives and welcomes and accepts a righteous man because he is a righteous man shall receive a righteous man's reward.
    42And whoever gives to one of these little ones [in rank or influence] even a cup of cold water because he is My disciple, surely I declare to you, he shall not lose his reward.
 
Matthew 11:28-30
    28Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy-laden and overburdened, and I will cause you to rest. [I will ease and relieve and refresh your souls.]
    29Take My yoke upon you and learn of Me, for I AM gentle (meek) and humble (lowly) in heart, and you will find rest (relief and ease and refreshment and recreation and blessed quiet) for your souls.
    30For My yoke is wholesome (useful, good--not harsh, hard, sharp, or pressing, but comfortable, gracious, and pleasant), and My burden is light and easy to be borne.
 
Matthew 12:9-21
     9And going on from there, He went into their synagogue.
    10And behold, a man was there with one withered hand. And they said to Him, Is it lawful or allowable to cure people on the Sabbath days?--that they might accuse Him.
    11But He said to them, What man is there among you, if he has only one sheep and it falls into a pit or ditch on the Sabbath, will not take hold of it and lift it out?
    12How much better and of more value is a man than a sheep! So it is lawful and allowable to do good on the Sabbath days.
    13Then He said to the man, Reach out your hand. And the man reached it out and it was restored, as sound as the other one.
    14But the Pharisees went out and held a consultation against Him, how they might do away with Him.
    15But being aware of this, Jesus went away from there. And many people joined and accompanied Him, and He cured all of them,
    16And strictly charged them and sharply warned them not to make Him publicly known.
    17This was in fulfillment of what was spoken by the prophet Isaiah,
    18Behold, My Servant Whom I have chosen, My Beloved in and with Whom My soul is well pleased and has found its delight. I will put My Spirit upon Him, and He shall proclaim and show forth justice to the nations.
    19He will not strive or wrangle or cry out loudly; nor will anyone hear His voice in the streets;
    20A bruised reed He will not break, and a smoldering (dimly burning) wick He will not quench, till He brings justice and a just cause to victory.
    21And in and on His Name will the Gentiles (non-Jews) set their hopes.
 
Matthew 13:3-9
    3And He told them many things in parables (stories by way of illustration and comparison), saying, A sower went out to sow.
    4And as he sowed, some seeds fell by the roadside, and the birds came and ate them up.
    5Other seeds fell on rocky ground, where they had not much soil; and at once they sprang up, because they had no depth of soil.
    6But when the sun rose, they were scorched, and because they had no root, they dried up and withered away.
    7Other seeds fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up and choked them out.
    8Other seeds fell on good soil, and yielded grain--some a hundred times as much as was sown, some sixty times as much, and some thirty.
    9He who has ears [to hear], let him be listening and let him consider and perceive and comprehend by hearing.
 
Matthew 13:16-23
    16But blessed (happy, fortunate, and to be envied) are your eyes because they do see, and your ears because they do hear.
    17Truly I tell you, many prophets and righteous men [men who were upright and in right standing with God] yearned to see what you see, and did not see it, and to hear what you hear, and did not hear it.
    18Listen then to the [meaning of the] parable of the sower:
    19While anyone is hearing the Word of the kingdom and does not grasp and comprehend it, the evil one comes and snatches away what was sown in his heart. This is what was sown along the roadside.
    20As for what was sown on thin (rocky) soil, this is he who hears the Word and at once welcomes and accepts it with joy;
    21Yet it has no real root in him, but is temporary (inconstant, lasts but a little while); and when affliction or trouble or persecution comes on account of the Word, at once he is caused to stumble [he is repelled and begins to distrust and desert Him Whom he ought to trust and obey] and he falls away.
    22As for what was sown among thorns, this is he who hears the Word, but the cares of the world and the pleasure and delight and glamour and deceitfulness of riches choke and suffocate the Word, and it yields no fruit.
    23As for what was sown on good soil, this is he who hears the Word and grasps and comprehends it; he indeed bears fruit and yields in one case a hundred times as much as was sown, in another sixty times as much, and in another thirty.
 
Matthew 13:43
    43Then will the righteous (those who are upright and in right standing with God) shine forth like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Let him who has ears [to hear] be listening, and let him consider and perceive and understand by hearing.
 
Matthew 14:14-21
    14When He went ashore and saw a great throng of people, He had compassion (pity and deep sympathy) for them and cured their sick.
    15When evening came, the disciples came to Him and said, This is a remote and barren place, and the day is now over; send the throngs away into the villages to buy food for themselves.
    16Jesus said, They do not need to go away; you give them something to eat.
    17They said to Him, We have nothing here but five loaves and two fish.
    18He said, Bring them here to Me.
    19Then He ordered the crowds to recline on the grass; and He took the five loaves and the two fish, and, looking up to heaven, He gave thanks and blessed and broke the loaves and handed the pieces to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the people.
    20And they all ate and were satisfied. And they picked up twelve [small hand] baskets full of the broken pieces left over.
    21And those who ate were about 5,000 men, not including women and children.
 
Matthew 14:22-33
    22Then He directed the disciples to get into the boat and go before Him to the other side, while He sent away the crowds.
    23And after He had dismissed the multitudes, He went up into the hills by Himself to pray. When it was evening, He was still there alone.
    24But the boat was by this time out on the sea, many furlongs [a furlong is one-eighth of a mile] distant from the land, beaten and tossed by the waves, for the wind was against them.
    25And in the fourth watch [between 3:00--6:00 a.m.] of the night, Jesus came to them, walking on the sea.
    26And when the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were terrified and said, It is a ghost! And they screamed out with fright.
    27But instantly He spoke to them, saying, Take courage! I AM! Stop being afraid!
    28And Peter answered Him, Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water.
    29He said, Come! So Peter got out of the boat and walked on the water, and he came toward Jesus.
    30But when he perceived and felt the strong wind, he was frightened, and as he began to sink, he cried out, Lord, save me [from death]!
    31Instantly Jesus reached out His hand and caught and held him, saying to him, O you of little faith, why did you doubt?
    32And when they got into the boat, the wind ceased.
    33And those in the boat knelt and worshiped Him, saying, Truly You are the Son of God!
 
Matthew 15:1-20
    1Then from Jerusalem came scribes and Pharisees and said,
    2Why do Your disciples transgress and violate the rules handed down by the elders of the past? For they do not practice [ceremonially] washing their hands before they eat.
    3He replied to them, And why also do you transgress and violate the commandment of God for the sake of the rules handed down to you by your forefathers (the elders)?
    4For God commanded, Honor your father and your mother, and, He who curses or reviles or speaks evil of or abuses or treats improperly his father or mother, let him surely come to his end by death.
    5But you say, If anyone tells his father or mother, What you would have gained from me [that is, the money and whatever I have that might be used for helping you] is already dedicated as a gift to God, then he is exempt and no longer under obligation to honor and help his father or his mother.
    6So for the sake of your tradition (the rules handed down by your forefathers), you have set aside the Word of God [depriving it of force and authority and making it of no effect].
    7You pretenders (hypocrites)! Admirably and truly did Isaiah prophesy of you when he said:
    8These people draw near Me with their mouths and honor Me with their lips, but their hearts hold off and are far away from Me.
    9Uselessly do they worship Me, for they teach as doctrines the commands of men.
    10And Jesus called the people to Him and said to them, Listen and grasp and comprehend this:
    11It is not what goes into the mouth of a man that makes him unclean and defiled, but what comes out of the mouth; this makes a man unclean and defiles [him].
    12Then the disciples came and said to Him, Do You know that the Pharisees were displeased and offended and indignant when they heard this saying?
    13He answered, Every plant which My heavenly Father has not planted will be torn up by the roots.
    14Let them alone and disregard them; they are blind guides and teachers. And if a blind man leads a blind man, both will fall into a ditch.
    15But Peter said to Him, Explain this proverb (this maxim) to us.
    16And He said, Are you also even yet dull and ignorant [without understanding and unable to put things together]?
    17Do you not see and understand that whatever goes into the mouth passes into the abdomen and so passes on into the place where discharges are deposited?
    18But whatever comes out of the mouth comes from the heart, and this is what makes a man unclean and defiles [him].
    19For out of the heart come evil thoughts (reasonings and disputings and designs) such as murder, adultery, sexual vice, theft, false witnessing, slander, and irreverent speech.
    20These are what make a man unclean and defile [him]; but eating with unwashed hands does not make him unclean or defile [him].
 
Matthew 15:28
    28Then Jesus answered her, O woman, great is your faith! Be it done for you as you wish. And her daughter was cured from that moment.
 
Matthew 15:32-38
    32Then Jesus called His disciples to Him and said, I have pity [compassion] and sympathy and am deeply moved for the crowd, because they have been with Me now three days and they have nothing [at all left] to eat; and I AM not willing to send them away hungry, lest they faint or become exhausted on the way.
    33And the disciples said to Him, Where are we to get bread sufficient to feed so great a crowd in this isolated and desert place?
    34And Jesus asked them, How many loaves of bread do you have? They replied, Seven, and a few small fish.
    35And ordering the crowd to recline on the ground,
    36He took the seven loaves and the fish, and when He had given thanks, He broke them and gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the people.
    37And they all ate and were satisfied. And they gathered up seven [large provision] baskets full of the broken pieces that were left over.
    38Those who ate were 4,000 men, not including the women and the children.
 
Matthew 16:8
    8But Jesus, aware of this, asked, Why are you discussing among yourselves the fact that you have no bread? O you [men, how little trust you have in Me, how] little faith!
 
Matthew 16:13-18
    13Now when Jesus went into the region of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, Who do people say that the Son of Man is?
    14And they answered, Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.
    15He said to them, But who do you [yourselves] say thatI AM?
    16Simon Peter replied, You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.
    17Then Jesus answered him, Blessed (happy, fortunate, and to be envied) are you, Simon Bar-Jonah. For flesh and blood [men] have not revealed this to you, but My Father Who is in heaven.
    18And I tell you, you are Peter [Greek, Petros--a large piece of rock], and on this rock [Greek, petra--a huge rock like Gibraltar] I will build My church, and the gates of Hades (the powers of the infernal region) shall not overpower it [or be strong to its detriment or hold out against it].
 
Matthew 16:24-27
    24Then Jesus said to His disciples, If anyone desires to be My disciple, let him deny himself [disregard, lose sight of, and forget himself and his own interests] and take up his cross and follow Me [cleave steadfastly to Me, conform wholly to My example in living and, if need be, in dying, also].
    25For whoever is bent on saving his [temporal] life [his comfort and security here] shall lose it [eternal life]; and whoever loses his life [his comfort and security here] for My sake shall find it [life everlasting].
    26For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his life [his blessed life in the kingdom of God]? Or what would a man give as an exchange for his [blessed] life [in the kingdom of God]?
    27For the Son of Man is going to come in the glory (majesty, splendor) of His Father with His angels, and then He will render account and reward every man in accordance with what he has done.
 
Matthew 17:18-21
    18And Jesus rebuked the demon, and it came out of him, and the boy was cured instantly.
    19Then the disciples came to Jesus and asked privately, Why could we not drive it out?
    20He said to them, Because of the littleness of your faith [that is, your lack of firmly relying trust]. For truly I say to you, if you have faith [that is living] like a grain of mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, Move from here to yonder place, and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you.
    21But this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting.
 
Matthew 17:22-27
    22When they were going about here and there in Galilee, Jesus said to them, The Son of Man is going to be turned over into the hands of men.
    23And they will kill Him, and He will be raised [to life] again on the third day. And they were deeply and exceedingly grieved and distressed.
    24When they arrived in Capernaum, the collectors of the half shekel [the temple tax] went up to Peter and said, Does not your Teacher pay the half shekel?
    25He answered, Yes. And when he came home, Jesus spoke to him [about it] first, saying, What do you think, Simon? From whom do earthly rulers collect duties or tribute--from their own sons or from others not of their own family?
    26And when Peter said, From other people not of their own family, Jesus said to him, Then the sons are exempt.
    27However, in order not to give offense and cause them to stumble [that is, to cause them to judge unfavorably and unjustly] go down to the sea and throw in a hook. Take the first fish that comes up, and when you open its mouth you will find there a shekel. Take it and give it to them to pay the temple tax for Me and for yourself.
 
Matthew 18:1-5
    1At that time the disciples came up and asked Jesus, Who then is [really] the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?
    2And He called a little child to Himself and put him in the midst of them,
    3And said, Truly I say to you, unless you repent (change, turn about) and become like little children [trusting, lowly, loving, forgiving], you can never enter the kingdom of heaven [at all].
    4Whoever will humble himself therefore and become like this little child [trusting, lowly, loving, forgiving] is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
    5And whoever receives and accepts and welcomes one little child like this for My sake and in My Name receives and accepts and welcomes Me.
 
Matthew 18:10-14
    10Beware that you do not despise or feel scornful toward or think little of one of these little ones, for I tell you that in heaven their angels always are in the presence of and look upon the face of My Father Who is in heaven.
    11For the Son of man came to save [from the penalty of eternal death] that which was lost.
    12What do you think? If a man has a hundred sheep, and one of them has gone astray and gets lost, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the mountain and go in search of the one that is lost?
    13And if it should be that he finds it, truly I say to you, he rejoices more over it than over the ninety-nine that did not get lost.
    14Just so it is not the will of My Father Who is in heaven that one of these little ones should be lost and perish.
 
Matthew 18:18-20
    18Truly I tell you, whatever you forbid and declare to be improper and unlawful on earth must be what is already forbidden in heaven, and whatever you permit and declare proper and lawful on earth must be what is already permitted in heaven.
    19Again I tell you, if two of you on earth agree (harmonize together, make a symphony together) about whatever [anything and everything] they may ask, it will come to pass and be done for them by My Father in heaven.
    20For wherever two or three are gathered (drawn together as My followers) in (into) My Name, there I AM in the midst of them.
 
Matthew 18:21-35
    21Then Peter came up to Him and said, Lord, how many times may my brother sin against me and I forgive him and let it go? [As many as] up to seven times?
    22Jesus answered him, I tell you, not up to seven times, but seventy times seven!
    23Therefore the kingdom of heaven is like a human king who wished to settle accounts with his attendants.
    24When he began the accounting, one was brought to him who owed him 10,000 talents [probably about $10,000,000],
    25And because he could not pay, his master ordered him to be sold, with his wife and his children and everything that he possessed, and payment to be made.
    26So the attendant fell on his knees, begging him, Have patience with me and I will pay you everything.
    27And his master's heart was moved with compassion, and he released him and forgave him [cancelling] the debt.
    28But that same attendant, as he went out, found one of his fellow attendants who owed him a hundred denarii [about twenty dollars]; and he caught him by the throat and said, Pay what you owe!
    29So his fellow attendant fell down and begged him earnestly, Give me time, and I will pay you all !
    30But he was unwilling, and he went out and had him put in prison till he should pay the debt.
    31When his fellow attendants saw what had happened, they were greatly distressed, and they went and told everything that had taken place to their master.
    32Then his master called him and said to him, You contemptible and wicked attendant! I forgave and cancelled all that [great] debt of yours because you begged me to.
    33And should you not have had pity [compassion] and mercy on your fellow attendant, as I had pity [compassion] and mercy on you?
    34And in wrath his master turned him over to the torturers (the jailers), till he should pay all that he owed.
    35So also My heavenly Father will deal with every one of you if you do not freely forgive your brother from your heart his offenses.
 
Matthew 19:13-14
    13Then little children were brought to Jesus, that He might put His hands on them and pray; but the disciples rebuked those who brought them.
    14But He said, Leave the children alone! Allow the little ones to come to Me, and do not forbid or restrain or hinder them, for of such [as these] is the kingdom of heaven composed.
 
Matthew 19:16-26
    16And behold, there came a man up to Him, saying, Teacher, what excellent and perfectly and essentially good deed must I do to possess eternal life?
    17And He said to him, Why do you ask Me about the perfectly and essentially good? There is only One Who is good [perfectly and essentially]--God. If you would enter into the Life, you must continually keep the commandments.
    18He said to Him, What sort of commandments? [Or, which ones?] And Jesus answered, You shall not kill, You shall not commit adultery, You shall not steal, You shall not bear false witness,
    19Honor your father and your mother, and, You shall love your neighbor as [you do] yourself.
    20The young man said, I have observed all these from my youth; what still do I lack?
    21Jesus answered him, If you would be perfect [that is, have that spiritual maturity which accompanies self-sacrificing character], go and sell what you have and give to the poor, and you will have riches in heaven; and come, be My disciple [side with My party and follow Me].
    22But when the young man heard this, he went away sad (grieved and in much distress), for he had great possessions.
    23And Jesus said to His disciples, Truly I say to you, it will be difficult for a rich man to get into the kingdom of heaven.
    24Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to go into the kingdom of heaven.
    25When the disciples heard this, they were utterly puzzled (astonished, bewildered), saying, Who then can be saved [from eternal death]?
    26But Jesus looked at them and said, With men this is impossible, but all things are possible with God.
 
Matthew 19:29-30
    29And anyone and everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or lands for My Name's sake will receive many [even a hundred] times more and will inherit eternal life.
    30But many who [now] are first will be last [then], and many who [now] are last will be first [then].
 
Matthew 20:1-16
    1For the kingdom of heaven is like the owner of an estate who went out in the morning along with the dawn to hire workmen for his vineyard.
    2After agreeing with the laborers for a denarius a day, he sent them into his vineyard.
    3And going out about the third hour (nine o'clock), he saw others standing idle in the marketplace;
    4And he said to them, You go also into the vineyard, and whatever is right I will pay you. And they went.
    5He went out again about the sixth hour (noon), and the ninth hour (three o'clock) he did the same.
    6And about the eleventh hour (five o'clock) he went out and found still others standing around, and said to them, Why do you stand here idle all day?
    7They answered him, Because nobody has hired us. He told them, You go out into the vineyard also and you will get whatever is just and fair.
    8When evening came, the owner of the vineyard said to his manager, Call the workmen and pay them their wages, beginning with the last and ending with the first.
    9And those who had been hired at the eleventh hour (five o'clock) came and received a denarius each.
    10Now when the first came, they supposed they would get more, but each of them also received a denarius.
    11And when they received it, they grumbled at the owner of the estate,
    12Saying, These [men] who came last worked no more than an hour, and yet you have made them rank with us who have borne the burden and the scorching heat of the day.
    13But he answered one of them, Friend, I am doing you no injustice. Did you not agree with me for a denarius?
    14Take what belongs to you and go. I choose to give to this man hired last the same as I give to you.
    15Am I not permitted to do what I choose with what is mine? [Or do you begrudge my being generous?] Is your eye evil because I am good?
    16So those who [now] are last will be first [then], and those who [now] are first will be last [then]. For many are called, but few chosen.
 
Matthew 20:25-28
    25And Jesus called them to Him and said, You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great men hold them in subjection [tyrannizing over them].
    26Not so shall it be among you; but whoever wishes to be great among you must be your servant,
    27And whoever desires to be first among you must be your slave--
    28Just as the Son of Man came not to be waited on but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many [the price paid to set them free].
 
Matthew 20:29-34
    29And as they were going out of Jericho, a great throng accompanied Him.
    30And behold, two blind men were sitting by the roadside, and when they heard that Jesus was passing by, they cried out, Lord, have pity [compassion] and mercy on us .....!
    31The crowds reproved them and told them to keep still; but they cried out all the more, Lord, have pity [compassion] and mercy on us .....!
    32And Jesus stopped and called them, and asked, What do you want Me to do for you?
    33They answered Him, Lord, we want our eyes to be opened!
    34And Jesus, in pity [compassion], touched their eyes; and instantly they received their sight and followed Him.
 
Matthew 21:21-22
    21And Jesus answered them, Truly I say to you, if you have faith (a firm relying trust) and do not doubt, you will not only do what has been done to the fig tree, but even if you say to this mountain, Be taken up and cast into the sea, it will be done.
    22And whatever you ask for in prayer, having faith and [really] believing, you will receive.
 
Matthew 22:37-40
    37And He replied to him, You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind (intellect).
    38This is the great (most important, principal) and first commandment.
    39And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as [you do] yourself.
    40These two commandments sum up and upon them depend all the Law and the Prophets.
 
Matthew 23:37
    37O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, murdering the prophets and stoning those who are sent to you! How often would I have gathered your children together as a mother fowl gathers her brood under her wings, and you refused!
 
Matthew 25:1-13
    1Then the kingdom of heaven shall be likened to ten virgins who took their lamps and went to meet the bridegroom.
    2Five of them were foolish (thoughtless, without forethought) and five were wise (sensible, intelligent, and prudent).
    3For when the foolish took their lamps, they did not take any [extra] oil with them;
    4But the wise took flasks of oil along with them [also] with their lamps.
    5While the bridegroom lingered and was slow in coming, they all began nodding their heads, and they fell asleep.
    6But at midnight there was a shout, Behold, the bridegroom! Go out to meet him!
    7Then all those virgins got up and put their own lamps in order.
    8And the foolish said to the wise, Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.
    9But the wise replied, There will not be enough for us and for you; go instead to the dealers and buy for yourselves.
    10But while they were going away to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were prepared went in with him to the marriage feast; and the door was shut.
    11Later the other virgins also came and said, Lord, Lord, open [the door] to us!
    12But He replied, I solemnly declare to you, I do not know you [I AM not acquainted with you] {we have no established relationship}.
    13Watch therefore [give strict attention and be cautious and active], for you know neither the day nor the hour when the Son of Man will come.
 
Matthew 25:31-40
    31When the Son of Man comes in His glory (His majesty and splendor), and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory.
    32All nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them [the people] from one another as a shepherd separates his sheep from the goats;
    33And He will cause the sheep to stand at His right hand, but the goats at His left.
    34Then the King will say to those at His right hand, Come, you blessed of My Father [you favored of God and appointed to eternal salvation], inherit (receive as your own) the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.
    35For I was hungry and you gave Me food, I was thirsty and you gave Me something to drink, I was a stranger and you brought Me together with yourselves and welcomed and entertained and lodged Me,
    36I was naked and you clothed Me, I was sick and you visited Me with help and ministering care, I was in prison and you came to see Me.
    37Then the just and upright will answer Him, Lord, when did we see You hungry and gave You food, or thirsty and gave You something to drink?
    38And when did we see You a stranger and welcomed and entertained You, or naked and clothed You?
    39And when did we see You sick or in prison and came to visit You?
    40And the King will reply to them, Truly I tell you, in so far as you did it for one of the least [in the estimation of men] of these My brethren, you did it for Me.
 
Matthew 26:53
    53Do you suppose that I cannot appeal to My Father, and He will immediately provide Me with more than twelve legions [more than 80,000] of angels?
 
Matthew 28:18-20
    18Jesus approached and, breaking the silence, said to them, All authority (all power of rule) in heaven and on earth has been given to Me.
    19Go then and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them into the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
    20Teaching them to observe everything that I have commanded you, and behold, I AM with you all the days (perpetually, uniformly, and on every occasion), to the [very] close and consummation of the age. Amen (so let it be).
 
Mark 1:15
    15And saying, The [appointed period of] time is fulfilled (completed), and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent (have a change of mind which issues in regret for past sins and in change of conduct for the better) and believe (trust in, rely on, and adhere to) the good news (the Gospel).
 
Mark 1:40-42
    40And a leper came to Him, begging Him on his knees and saying to Him, If You are willing, You are able to make me clean.
    41And being moved with pity [compassion] and sympathy, Jesus reached out His hand and touched him, and said to him, I AM willing; be made clean!
    42And at once the leprosy [completely] left him and he was made clean [by being healed].
