Matthew 16

CHAPTER 16
1And the Pharisees and the Sadducees came to him tempting [him], and prayed him to show them a token from heaven.
2And he answered, and said to them, When the eventide is come, ye say, It shall be clear, for heaven is ruddy [or red];
3and the morrowtide, Today tempest, for heaven shineth heavily. Then ye know how to deem [wisely] the face of heaven, but ye may not know the tokens of times.
4An evil generation and adulterous seeketh a token; and a token shall not be given to it, but the token of Jonah, the prophet. And when he had left them, he went forth [or went away].
5And when his disciples came over the sea, they forgot to take loaves.
6And he said to them, Behold ye, and beware of the sourdough of Pharisees and of Sadducees.
7And they thought among them-[selves], and said, For we have not taken loaves.
8But Jesus witting said to them, What think ye among you of little faith, for ye have not taken loaves?
9Yet ye understand not, neither have mind, of five loaves into five thousand of men, and how many coffins ye took?
10neither of seven loaves into four thousand of men, and how many baskets ye took?
11Why understand ye not, for I said not to you of bread, Be ye ware of the sourdough of Pharisees and of Sadducees?
12Then they understood, that he said not to beware of [the] sourdough of loaves, but of the teaching of Pharisees and of Sadducees.
13And Jesus came into the parts of Caesarea of Philippi, and asked his disciples, and said, Whom say men to be man’s Son?
14And they said, Some John Baptist; others Elijah; and others Jeremy, or one of the prophets.
15Jesus said to them, But whom say ye me to be?
16Simon Peter answered, and said, Thou art Christ, the Son of God living [or the son of quick God].
17Jesus answered, and said to him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona; for flesh and blood showed not to thee, but my Father that is in heavens.
18And I say to thee, that thou art Peter, and on this stone I shall build my church, and the gates of hell shall not have might or power, [or strength], against it.
19And to thee I shall give the keys of the kingdom of heavens; and what-ever thou shalt bind on earth, shall be bound also in heavens; and whatever thou shalt unbind on earth, shall be unbound also in heavens.
20Then he commanded to his disciples, that they should say to no man, that he was Jesus Christ.
21From that time Jesus began to show to his disciples, that it behooved him to go to Jerusalem, and suffer many things, of the elder men [or the elders], and of the scribes, and of princes of priests; and be slain, and the third day to rise again.
22And Peter took him, and began to blame him, and said, Far be it from thee, Lord; this shall not be to thee.
23And he turned, and said to Peter, Satan, go thou after me; thou art a cause of stumbling to me; for thou savourest [or understandest] not those things that be of God, but those things that be of men.
24Then Jesus said to his disciples, If any man will come after me, deny he himself, and take his cross, and pursue me;
25for he that will make his life safe, shall lose it; and he that shall lose his life for me, shall find it.
26For what profiteth it to a man [or what profiteth to a man], if he win all the world, and suffer impairing of his soul? or what exchanging shall a man give for his soul?
27For man’s Son shall come in the glory of his Father, with his angels, and then he shall yield to every man after his works.
28Truly I say to you, there be some of them that stand here, which shall not taste death, till they see man’s Son coming in his kingdom.
