The parable of the vineyard and husbandmen. Caesar's right to tribute. The Sadducees are confuted. The first commandment. The widow's mite.
 And he began to speak to them in parables: A certain man planted a vineyard and made a hedge about it, and dug a place for the winefat, and built a tower, and let it to husbandmen; and went into a far country.
Et coepit illis in parabolis loqui : Vineam pastinavit homo, et circumdedit sepem, et fodit lacum, et aedificavit turrim, et locavit eam agricolis, et peregre profectus est.
 And at the season he sent to the husbandmen a servant to receive of the husbandmen of the fruit of the vineyard.
Et misit ad agricolas in tempore servum ut ab agricolis acciperet de fructu vineae.
 Who having laid hands on him, beat him, and sent him away empty.
Qui apprehensum eum ceciderunt, et dimiserunt vacuum.
 And again he sent to them another servant; and him they wounded in the head, and used him reproachfully.
Et iterum misit ad illos alium servum : et illum in capite vulneraverunt, et contumeliis affecerunt.
 And again he sent another, and him they killed: and many others, of whom some they beat, and others they killed.
Et rursum alium misit, et illum occiderunt : et plures alios : quosdam caedentes, alios vero occidentes.
 Therefore having yet one son, most dear to him; he also sent him unto them last of all, saying: They will reverence my son.
Adhuc ergo unum habens filium carissimum, et illum misit ad eos novissimum, dicens : Quia reverebuntur filium meum.
 But the husbandmen said one to another: This is the heir; come let us kill him; and the inheritance shall be ours.
Coloni autem dixerunt ad invicem : Hic est haeres : venite, occidamus eum : et nostra erit haereditas.
 And laying hold on him, they killed him, and cast him out of the vineyard.
Et apprehendentes eum, occiderunt : et ejecerunt extra vineam.
 What therefore will the lord of the vineyard do? He will come and destroy those husbandmen; and will give the vineyard to others.
Quid ergo faciet dominus vineae? Veniet, et perdet colonos, et dabit vineam aliis.
 And have you not read this scripture, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is made the head of the corner:
Nec scripturam hanc legistis : Lapidem quem reprobaverunt aedificantes, hic factus est in caput anguli :
 By the Lord has this been done, and it is wonderful in our eyes.
a Domino factum est istud, et est mirabile in oculis nostris?
 And they sought to lay hands on him, but they feared the people. For they knew that he spoke this parable to them. And leaving him, they went their way.
Et quaerebant eum tenere : et timuerunt turbam : cognoverunt enim quoniam ad eos parabolam hanc dixerit. Et relicto eo abierunt.
 And they sent to him some of the Pharisees and of the Herodians; that they should catch him in his words.
Et mittunt ad eum quosdam ex pharisaeis, et herodianis, ut eum caperent in verbo.
 Who coming, say to him: Master, we know that thou art a true speaker, and carest not for any 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 shall we not give it?
Qui venientes dicunt ei : Magister, scimus quia verax es, et non curas quemquam : nec enim vides in faciem hominum, sed in veritate viam Dei doces. Licet dari tributum Caesari, an non dabimus?
 Who knowing their wiliness, saith to them: Why tempt you me? bring me a penny that I may see it.
Qui sciens versutiam illorum, ait illos : Quid me tentatis? afferte mihi denarium ut videam.
 And they brought it him. And he saith to them: Whose is this image and inscription? They say to him, Caesar's.
At illi attulerunt ei. Et ait illis : Cujus est imago haec, et inscriptio? Dicunt ei : Caesaris.
 And Jesus answering, said to them: Render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's. And they marvelled at him.
Respondens autem Jesus dixit illis : Reddite igitur quae sunt Caesaris, Caesari : et quae sunt Dei, Deo. Et mirabantur super eo.
 And there came to him the Sadducees, who say there is no resurrection; and they asked him, saying:
Et venerunt ad eum sadducaei, qui dicunt resurrectionem non esse : et interrogabant eum, dicentes :
 Master, Moses wrote unto us, that if any man's brother die, and leave his wife behind him, and leave no children, his brother should take his wife, and raise up seed to his brother.
Magister, Moyses nobis scripsit, ut si cujus frater mortuus fuerit, et dimiserit uxorem, et filios non reliquerit, accipiat frater ejus uxorem ipsius, et resuscitet semen fratri suo.
 Now there were seven brethren; and the first took a wife, and died leaving no issue.
Septem ergo fratres erant : et primus accepit uxorem, et mortuus est non relicto semine.
 And the second took her, and died: and neither did he leave any issue. And the third in like manner.
Et secundus accepit eam, et mortuus est : et nec iste reliquit semen. Et tertius similiter.
 And the seven all took her in like manner; and did not leave issue. Last of all the woman also died.
Et acceperunt eam similiter septem : et non reliquerunt semen. Novissima omnium defuncta est et mulier.
 In the resurrection therefore, when they shall rise again, whose wife shall she be of them? for the seven had her to wife.
In resurrectione ergo cum resurrexerint, cujus de his erit uxor? septem enim habuerunt eam uxorem.
 And Jesus answering, saith to them: Do ye not therefore err, because you know not the scriptures, nor the power of God?
Et respondens Jesus, ait illis : Nonne ideo erratis, non scientes Scripturas, neque virtutem Dei?
 For when they shall rise again from the dead, they shall neither marry, nor be married, but are as the angels in heaven.
Cum enim a mortuis resurrexerint, neque nubent, neque nubentur, sed sunt sicut angeli in caelis.
 And as concerning the dead that they rise again, have you not read in the book of Moses, how in the bush God spoke to him, saying: I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob?
De mortuis autem quod resurgant, non legistis in libro Moysi, super rubum, quomodo dixerit illi Deus, inquiens : Ego sum Deus Abraham, et Deus Isaac, et Deus Jacob?
 He is not the God of the dead, but of the living. You therefore do greatly err.
Non est Deus mortuorum, sed vivorum. Vos ergo multum erratis.
 And there came one of the scribes that had heard them reasoning together, and seeing that he had answered them well, asked him which was the first commandment of all.
Et accessit unus de scribis, qui audierat illos conquirentes, et videns quoniam bene illis responderit, interrogavit eum quod esset primum omnium mandatum.
 And Jesus answered him: The first commandment of all is, Hear, O Israel: the Lord thy God is one God.
Jesus autem respondit ei : Quia primum omnium mandatum est : Audi Israel, Dominus Deus tuus, Deus unus est :
 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God, with thy whole heart, and with thy whole soul, and with thy whole mind, and with thy whole strength. This is the first commandment.
et diliges Dominum Deum tuum ex tota corde tuo, et ex tota anima tua, et ex tota mente tua, et ex tota virtute tua. Hoc est primum mandatum.
 And the second is like to it: Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is no other commandment greater than these.
Secundum autem simile est illi : Diliges proximum tuum tamquam teipsum. Majus horum aliud mandatum non est.
 And the scribe said to him: Well, Master, thou hast said in truth, that there is one God, and there is no other besides him.
Et ait illi scriba : Bene, Magister, in veritate dixisti, quia unus est Deus, et non est alius praeter eum.
 And that he should be loved with the whole heart, and with the whole understanding, and with the whole soul, and with the whole strength; and to love one's neighbour as one's self, is a greater thing than all holocausts and sacrifices.
Et ut diligatur ex toto corde, et ex toto intellectu, et ex tota anima, et ex tota fortitudine, et diligere proximum tamquam seipsum, majus est omnibus holocautomatibus, et sacrificiis.
 And Jesus seeing that he had answered wisely, said to him: Thou art not far from the kingdom of God. And no man after that durst ask him any question.
Jesus autem videns quod sapienter respondisset, dixit illi : Non es longe a regno Dei. Et nemo jam audebat eum interrogare.
 And Jesus answering, said, teaching in the temple: How do the scribes say, that Christ is the son of David?
Et respondens Jesus dicebat, docens in templo : Quomodo dicunt scribae Christum filium esse David?
 For David himself saith by the Holy Ghost: The Lord said to my Lord, Sit on my right hand, until I make thy enemies thy footstool.
Ipse enim David dicit in Spiritu Sancto : Dixit Dominus Domino meo : Sede a dextris meis, donec ponam inimicos tuos scabellum pedum tuorum.
 David therefore himself calleth him Lord, and whence is he then his son? And a great multitude heard him gladly.
Ipse ergo David dicit eum Dominum, et unde est filius ejus? Et multa turba eum libenter audivit.
 And he said to them in his doctrine: Beware of the scribes, who love to walk in long robes, and to be saluted in the marketplace,
Et dicebat eis in doctrina sua : Cavete a scribis, qui volunt in stolis ambulare, et salutari in foro,
 And to sit in the first chairs, in the synagogues, and to have the highest places at suppers:
et in primis cathedris sedere in synagogis, et primos discubitus in coenis :
 Who devour the houses of widows under the pretence of long prayer: these shall receive greater judgment.
qui devorant domos viduarum sub obtentu prolixae orationis : hi accipient prolixius judicium.
 And Jesus sitting over against the treasury, beheld how the people cast money into the treasury, and many that were rich cast in much.
Et sedens Jesus contra gazophylacium, aspiciebat quomodo turba jactaret aes in gazophylacium, et multi divites jactabant multa.
 And there came a certain poor widow, and she cast in two mites, which make a farthing.
Cum venisset autem vidua una pauper, misit duo minuta, quod est quadrans,
 And calling his disciples together, he saith to them: Amen I say to you, this poor widow hath cast in more than all they who have cast into the treasury.
et convocans discipulos suos, ait illis : Amen dico vobis, quoniam vidua haec pauper plus omnibus misit, qui miserunt in gazophylacium.
 For all they did cast in of their abundance; but she of her want cast in all she had, even her whole living.
Omnes enim ex eo, quod abundabat illis, miserunt : haec vero de penuria sua omnia quae habuit misit totum victum suum.
