The Gospel of Matthew 6

6 But you, when you pray enter into your inner room and close the door, and pray to your Father who is in private;
and your Father, who sees in private, will reward you openly.
7 And when you pray be not chatterers like the heathen; for they expect to be heard for their many words.
8 Therefore, be not like them, for your Father knows what is needful for you before you ask him.
9 Therefore, pray in this way; Our Father in Heaven, hallowed be Your name.
10 Your kingdom come: Your will be done; as in Heaven, so on earth:
11 Give us the bread of our need this day;
12 And forgive us our offences, as we have forgiven those who offend us:
13 And bring us not into trial, but deliver us from evil, For Your is the Realm, and the power, and the glory, forever and ever: Amen.

The Gospel of Matthew 19

21 Jesus said to him: If you wish to be perfect, go and sell what you own, and give the money to the poor;
and you will have a treasure in Heaven; and then, come follow me.
22 And the young man heard these words and he left sad; for he had great wealth.
23 And Jesus said to his disciples: Truly I say to you, it is difficult for a wealthy man to enter into the Realm of Heaven.
24 Yes, I say to yo: It is easier for a rope to pass tru the eye of a needle, than for a wealthy man to enter the Realm of God.
25 And when the disciples heard this, they were astonished, and said: Who then can attain life?
26 Jesus looked at them, and said to them: For men this is impossible, but with God every thing is possible.

The Gospel of Luke 23

3 And Pilate questioned him, and said to him: Are you the king of the Jews? He said to him: It is you who says it.
4 And Pilate said to the high priests and the group: I find no crime upon this man.
5 And they persisted, and said: He is inflaming the people, by teaching in all Judaea, starting from Galilee, down to here.
6 And Pilate, when he heard the name Galilee, inquired if the man were a Galilean.
7 And having learned that he was from under Herod‘s jurisdiction, he sent him to Herod, for he was in Jerusalem on those days.
8 And Herod was delighted when he saw Jesus, for he had been wanting to see him for a long time, because he had heard many things about him, and he hoped to see some signs from him.
9 And he asked him many questions, but Jesus gave no reply.
10 And the high priests and scribes stood up and vehemently accused him.
11 And Herod and his soldiers showed contempt to him. And when he had mocked him, he clothed him in a purple robe, and sent him to Pilate.
12 And on that day, Pilate and Herod became as friends to each other, for there had previously been discord between them.

Acts 13

6 And when they had traveled the entire island as far as the city Paphos, they found a certain man, a Jewish sorcerer, whose name was Bar–Suma.
7 He was close to a wise man called Sergius Paulus, who was the proconsul. And the proconsul sent for Saul and BarNabas, and wanted to hear from them the word of God.
8 And this sorcerer, Bar–Suma; whose name means Elymas, tried to hinder them, wanting to keep the proconsul away from the faith.
9 And Saul, who was called Paul, was filled with the Holy Spirit, and he looked at him,
10 and said, O you full of every sort of fraud and evilness, you son of the devil, and enemy of all righteousness, will you not stop twisting the right ways of the Lord?
11 And now, the hand of the Lord is upon you, and you will be blind, and will not see the sun for a time. And at that moment there fell upon him a mist and darkness, and he went about, asking who would lead him by the hand.
12 And when the proconsul saw what happened, he was astonished; and he believed in the teachings of the Lord.
