Matthew 22:23-46 Darby’s Translation

The Question about the Resurrection

23  On that day came to him Sadducees, who say there is no resurrection; and they demanded of him, 24  saying, Teacher, Moses said, If any one die, not having children, his brother shall marry his wife and shall raise up seed to his brother. 25  Now there were with us seven brethren; and the first having married died, and not having seed, left his wife to his brother. 26  In like manner also the second and the third, unto the seven. 27  And last of all the woman also died. 28  In the resurrection therefore of which of the seven shall she be wife, for all had her? 29  And Jesus answering said to them, Ye err, not knowing the scriptures nor the power of God. 30  For in the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are as angels of God in heaven. 31  But concerning the resurrection of the dead, have ye not read what was spoken to you by God, saying, 32  I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? God is not God of [the] dead, but of [the] living. 33  And when the crowds heard [it] they were astonished at his doctrine.

The Great Commandment

34  But the Pharisees, having heard that he had put the Sadducees to silence, were gathered together. 35  And one of them, a lawyer, demanded, tempting him, and saying, 36  Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law? 37  And he said to him, Thou shalt love [the] Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy understanding. 38  This is [the] great and first commandment. 39  And [the] second is like it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 40  On these two commandments the whole law and the prophets hang.

The Question about David's Son

41  And the Pharisees being gathered together, Jesus demanded of them, 42  saying, What think ye concerning the Christ? whose son is he? They say to him, David's. 43  He says to them, How then does David in Spirit call him Lord, saying, 44  The Lord said to my Lord, Sit on my right hand until I put thine enemies under thy feet? 45  If therefore David call him Lord, how is he his son? 46  And no one was able to answer him a word, nor did any one dare from that day to question him any more.
