when he had ended all his sayings in the audience of the people, he entered into
2 And a certain centurions servant, who was dear unto
him, was sick, and ready to die.
3 And when he heard of Jesus, he sent
unto him the elders of the Jews, beseeching him that he would come and heal his
4 And when they came to Jesus, they besought him instantly,
saying, That he was worthy for whom he should do this:
5 For he loveth
our nation, and he hath built us a synagogue.
6 Then Jesus went with
them. And when he was now not far from the house, the centurion sent friends to
him, saying unto him, Lord, trouble not thyself: for I am not worthy that thou
shouldest enter under my roof:
7 Wherefore neither thought I myself
worthy to come unto thee: but say in a word, and my servant shall be healed.
I also am a man set under authority, having under me soldiers, and I say unto
one, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant,
Do this, and he doeth it.
9 When Jesus heard these things, he
marvelled at him, and turned him about, and said unto the people that followed
him, I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no,
not in Israel.
10 And they that were sent, returning to the
house, found the servant whole that had been sick.
it came to pass the day after, that he went into a city called Nain; and many of
his disciples went with him, and much people.
12 Now when he came nigh
to the gate of the city, behold, there was a dead man carried out, the only son
of his mother, and she was a widow: and much people of the city was with her.
when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her, and said unto her, Weep
14 And he came and touched the bier: and they that bare him
stood still. And he said, Young man, I say unto thee,
15 And he that was dead sat up, and began to speak. And
he delivered him to his mother.
16 And there came a fear on all: and
they glorified God, saying, That a great prophet is risen up among us; and, That
God hath visited his people.
17 And this rumour of him went forth
throughout all Judaea, and throughout all the region round about.
the disciples of John shewed him of all these things.
John calling unto him two of his disciples sent them to Jesus,
saying, Art thou he that should come? or look we for another?
the men were come unto him, they said, John Baptist hath sent us unto thee,
saying, Art thou he that should come? or look we for another?
in that same hour he cured many of their infirmities and plagues, and of
evil spirits; and unto many that were blind he gave sight.
Jesus answering said unto them, Go your way, and tell John
what things ye have seen and heard; how that the blind see, the lame walk, the
lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, to the poor the gospel
23 And blessed is he,
whosoever shall not be offended in me.
24 And when the
messengers of John were departed, he began to speak unto the people concerning
John, What went ye out into the wilderness for to see? A
reed shaken with the wind?
25 But what
went ye out for to see? A man clothed in soft raiment? Behold, they which are
gorgeously apparelled, and live delicately, are in kings courts.
what went ye out for to see? A prophet? Yea, I say unto you, and much more than
27 This is he, of whom
it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare
thy way before thee.
28 For I say unto
you, Among those that are born of women there is not a greater prophet than John
the Baptist: but he that is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he.
29 And all the people that heard him, and the publicans,
justified God, being baptized with the baptism of John.
30 But the
Pharisees and lawyers rejected the counsel of God against themselves, being not
baptized of him.
31 And the Lord said, Whereunto
then shall I liken the men of this generation? and to what are they like?
32 They are like unto children sitting in the
marketplace, and calling one to another, and saying, We have piped unto you, and
ye have not danced; we have mourned to you, and ye have not wept.
John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking wine; and ye say, He
hath a devil.
34 The Son of man is come
eating and drinking; and ye say, Behold a gluttonous man, and a winebibber, a
friend of publicans and sinners!
wisdom is justified of all her children.
36 And one of the Pharisees desired him that he would eat with
him. And he went into the Pharisee’s house, and sat down to meat.
37 And, behold, a woman in the city, which was a sinner, when she
knew that Jesus sat at meat in the Pharisee’s house, brought an
alabaster box of ointment,
38 And stood at his feet behind him weeping, and began to
wash his feet with tears, and did wipe them with the hairs of her head,
and kissed his feet, and anointed them with the ointment.
39 Now when the Pharisee which had bidden him saw it, he
spake within himself, saying, This man, if he were a prophet, would have known
who and what manner of woman this is that toucheth him: for she is a
40 And Jesus answering said unto him, Simon,
I have somewhat to say unto thee. And he saith, Master, say on.
41 There was a certain creditor which had
two debtors: the one owed five hundred pence, and the other fifty.
42 And when they had nothing to pay, he
frankly forgave them both. Tell me therefore, which of them will love him most?
43 Simon answered and said, I suppose that he, to whom he
forgave most. And he said unto him, Thou hast rightly judged.
44 And he turned to the woman, and said unto Simon, Seest
thou this woman? I entered into thine house, thou gavest me no water for my
feet: but she hath washed my feet with tears, and wiped them with the
hairs of her head.
45 Thou gavest me no kiss: but this woman
since the time I came in hath not ceased to kiss my feet.
46 My head with oil thou didst not anoint:
but this woman hath anointed my feet with ointment.
47 Wherefore I say unto thee, Her sins,
which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much: but to whom little is
forgiven, the same loveth little.
48 And he said unto her, Thy sins are
49 And they that sat at meat with him began to say within
themselves, Who is this that forgiveth sins also?
50 And he said to the woman, Thy faith hath
saved thee; go in peace.
