NASB — Matthew 16 — KJV

Pharisees Test Jesus

1 aThe bPharisees and Sadducees came up, and testing Jesus, they casked Him to show them a Isign from heaven. 2 But He replied to them, IaWhen it is evening, you say, ‘[It will be] fair weather, for the sky is red.’ 3 And in the morning, ‘[There will be] a storm today, for the sky is red and threatening.’ aDo you know how to discern the Iappearance of the sky, but cannot [discern] the signs of the times? 4 aAn evil and adulterous generation seeks after a Isign; and a Isign will not be given it, except the sign of Jonah.” And He left them and went away.

5 ¶ And the disciples came to the other side [of the sea], but they had forgotten to bring [any] bread. 6 And Jesus said to them, “Watch out and abeware of the Ileaven of the bPharisees and Sadducees.” 7 They began to discuss [this] among themselves, saying, “[He said that] because we did not bring [any] bread.” 8 But Jesus, aware of this, said, aYou men of little faith, why do you discuss among yourselves that you have no bread? 9 Do you not yet understand or remember athe five loaves of the five thousand, and how many baskets [full] you picked up? 10 Or athe seven loaves of the four thousand, and how many large baskets [full] you picked up? 11 How is it that you do not understand that I did not speak to you concerning bread? But abeware of the Ileaven of the bPharisees and Sadducees.” 12 Then they understood that He did not say to beware of the leaven of bread, but of the teaching of the aPharisees and Sadducees.

Peter’s Confession of Christ

13aNow when Jesus came into the district of bCaesarea Philippi, He was asking His disciples, “Who do people say that cthe Son of Man is?” 14 And they said, “Some [say] aJohn the Baptist; and others, IbElijah; but still others, IIJeremiah, or one of the prophets.” 15 He *said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” 16 Simon Peter answered, “You are Iathe Christ, bthe Son of cthe living God.” 17 And Jesus said to him, “Blessed are you, aSimon IBarjona, because bflesh and blood did not reveal [this] to you, but My Father who is in heaven. 18 I also say to you that you are IaPeter, and upon this IIrock I will build My church; and the gates of bHades will not overpower it. 19 I will give you athe keys of the kingdom of heaven; and bwhatever you bind on earth Ishall have been bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth IIshall have been loosed in heaven.” 20 aThen He Iwarned the disciples that they should tell no one that He was IIbthe Christ.

Jesus Foretells His Death

21aFrom that time IJesus began to show His disciples that He must go to Jerusalem, and bsuffer many things from the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised up on the third day. 22 Peter took Him aside and began to rebuke Him, saying, “IGod forbid [it], Lord! This shall never IIhappen to You.” 23 But He turned and said to Peter, “Get behind Me, aSatan! You are a stumbling block to Me; for you are not setting your mind on IGod’s interests, but man’s.”

Discipleship Is Costly

24 ¶ Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and atake up his cross and follow Me. 25 For awhoever wishes to save his Ilife will lose it; but whoever loses his Ilife for My sake will find it. 26 For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? 27 For the aSon of Man bis going to come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and cWILL THEN IREPAY EVERY MAN ACCORDING TO HIS IIDEEDS.

The Pharisees require a sign.

1 The Pharisees also with the Sadducees came, and tempting desired him that he would shew them a sign from heaven. 2 He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye say, [It will be] fair weather: for the sky is red. 3 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? 4 A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas. And he left them, and departed. 5 And when his disciples were come to the other side, they had forgotten to take bread.

Jesus warneth his disciples of the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees.

6 ¶ Then Jesus said unto them, Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees. 7 And they reasoned among themselves, saying, [It is] because we have taken no bread. 8 [Which] when Jesus perceived, he said unto them, O ye of little faith, why reason ye among yourselves, because ye have brought no bread? 9 Do ye not yet understand, neither remember the five loaves of the five thousand, and how many baskets ye took up? 10 Neither the seven loaves of the four thousand, and how many baskets ye took up? 11 How is it that ye do not understand that I spake [it] not to you concerning bread, that ye should beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees? 12 Then understood they how that he bade [them] not beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.

The people's opinion of Christ,

13 ¶ When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am? 14 And they said, Some [say that thou art] John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets. 15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?

and Peter's confession of him.

16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. 17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed [it] unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. 18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. 19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. 20 Then charged he his disciples that they should tell no man that he was Jesus the Christ.

Jesus foresheweth his death,

21 ¶ From that time forth began Jesus to 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 be raised again the third day. 22 Then Peter took him, and began to rebuke him, saying, Be it far from thee, Lord: this shall not be unto thee.

and admonisheth those that will follow him, to bear the cross.

24 ¶ Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any [man] will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. 25 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. 26 For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? 27 For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works. 28 Verily I say unto you, There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom.
