Matthew 16 ©
The Pharisees require a sign. Jesus warneth his disciples against the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees, and explaineth his meaning. people's opinion, and Peter's confession, of Christ. Jesus foreshoweth his own death, and rebuketh Peter for dissuading him from it. He showeth that his followers must deny themselves in prospect of a future reward.
He answered and said unto them, cWhen it is evening, ye say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red.
And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and *lowring. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?
¶When Jesus came into the *coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, oWhom do men say that I the Son of man am?
And Jesus answered and said unto him, tBlessed art thou, Simon Bar-jona: for uflesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, vbut my Father which is in heaven.
And I say also unto thee, That wthou art Peter, and xupon this rock I will build my church; and the ygates of hell shall not prevail against it.
zAnd I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and awhatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
¶From that time forth began Jesus cto shew unto his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and dbe raised again the third day.
Then Peter took him, and began to rebuke him, saying, 1Be it far from thee, Lord: this shall not be unto thee.
iFor the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; jand then he shall reward every man according to his works.
