13:2 And Jesus answering said unto them, Suppose ye that these
Galilaeans were sinners above all the Galilaeans, because they
suffered such things?
13:3 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all
13:4 Or those eighteen, upon whom the tower in Siloam fell, and
slew them, think ye that they were sinners above all men that
dwelt in Jerusalem?
13:5 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all
13:6 He spake also this parable; A certain man had a fig tree
planted in his vineyard; and he came and sought fruit thereon,
and found none.
13:7 Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard, Behold,
these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and
find none: cut it down; why cumbereth it the ground?
13:8 And he answering said unto him, Lord, let it alone this
year also, till I shall dig about it, and dung it:
13:9 And if it bear fruit, well: and if not, then after that
thou shalt cut it down.
13:10 And he was teaching in one of the synagogues on the
13:11 And, behold, there was a woman which had a spirit of
infirmity eighteen years, and was bowed together, and could in
no wise lift up herself.
13:12 And when Jesus saw her, he called her to him, and said
unto her, Woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity.
13:13 And he laid his hands on her: and immediately she was
made straight, and glorified God.
13:14 And the ruler of the synagogue answered with indignation,
because that Jesus had healed on the sabbath day, and said unto
the people, There are six days in which men ought to work: in
them therefore come and be healed, and not on the sabbath day.
13:15 The Lord then answered him, and said, Thou hypocrite,
doth not each one of you on the sabbath loose his ox or his
ass from the stall, and lead him away to watering?
13:16 And ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham,
whom Satan hath bound, lo, these eighteen years, be loosed from
this bond on the sabbath day?
13:17 And when he had said these things, all his adversaries
were ashamed: and all the people rejoiced for all the glorious
things that were done by him.
13:18 Then said he, Unto what is the kingdom of God like? and
whereunto shall I resemble it?
13:19 It is like a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and
cast into his garden; and it grew, and waxed a great tree; and
the fowls of the air lodged in the branches of it.
13:20 And again he said, Whereunto shall I liken the kingdom of
13:21 It is like leaven, which a woman took and hid in three
measures of meal, till the whole was leavened.
13:22 And he went through the cities and villages, teaching, and
journeying toward Jerusalem.
13:23 Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved?
And he said unto them,
13:24 Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say
unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.
13:25 When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath
shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock
at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall
answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are:
13:26 Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy
presence, and thou hast taught in our streets.
13:27 But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye
are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity.
13:28 There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye
shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets,
in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out.
13:29 And they shall come from the east, and from the west,
and from the north, and from the south, and shall sit down in
the kingdom of God.
13:30 And, behold, there are last which shall be first, and
there are first which shall be last.
13:31 The same day there came certain of the Pharisees, saying
unto him, Get thee out, and depart hence: for Herod will kill
13:32 And he said unto them, Go ye, and tell that fox, Behold, I
cast out devils, and I do cures to day and to morrow, and the
third day I shall be perfected.
13:33 Nevertheless I must walk to day, and to morrow, and the
day following: for it cannot be that a prophet perish out of
13:34 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, which killest the prophets, and
stonest them that are sent unto thee; how often would I have
gathered thy children together, as a hen doth gather her
brood under her wings, and ye would not!
13:35 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate: and verily I
say unto you, Ye shall not see me, until the time come when
ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the
14:1 And it came to pass, as he went into the house of one of the chief Pharisees to eat bread on the sabbath day, that they watched him.
14:2 And, behold, there was a certain man before him which had
14:3 And Jesus answering spake unto the lawyers and Pharisees,
saying, Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath day?
14:4 And they held their peace. And he took him, and healed
him, and let him go;
14:5 And answered them, saying, Which of you shall have an ass
or an ox fallen into a pit, and will not straightway pull him
out on the sabbath day?
14:6 And they could not answer him again to these things.
14:7 And he put forth a parable to those which were bidden, when
he marked how they chose out the chief rooms; saying unto them,
14:8 When thou art bidden of any man to a wedding, sit not
down in the highest room; lest a more honourable man than thou
be bidden of him;
14:9 And he that bade thee and him come and say to thee, Give
this man place; and thou begin with shame to take the lowest
14:10 But when thou art bidden, go and sit down in the lowest
room; that when he that bade thee cometh, he may say unto thee,
Friend, go up higher: then shalt thou have worship in the
presence of them that sit at meat with thee.
14:11 For whosoever exalteth himself shall be abased; and he
that humbleth himself shall be exalted.
14:12 Then said he also to him that bade him, When thou makest a
dinner or a supper, call not thy friends, nor thy brethren,
neither thy kinsmen, nor thy rich neighbours; lest they also
bid thee again, and a recompence be made thee.
14:13 But when thou makest a feast, call the poor, the maimed,
the lame, the blind:
14:14 And thou shalt be blessed; for they cannot recompense
thee: for thou shalt be recompensed at the resurrection of the
14:15 And when one of them that sat at meat with him heard these
things, he said unto him, Blessed is he that shall eat bread
in the kingdom of God.
14:16 Then said he unto him, A certain man made a great supper,
and bade many:
14:17 And sent his servant at supper time to say to them that
were bidden, Come; for all things are now ready.
14:18 And they all with one consent began to make excuse. The
first said unto him, I have bought a piece of ground, and I
must needs go and see it: I pray thee have me excused.
14:19 And another said, I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I
go to prove them: I pray thee have me excused.
14:20 And another said, I have married a wife, and therefore I
14:21 So that servant came, and shewed his lord these things.
Then the master of the house being angry said to his servant,
Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and
bring in hither the poor, and the maimed, and the halt, and the
14:22 And the servant said, Lord, it is done as thou hast
commanded, and yet there is room.
14:23 And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the
highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my
house may be filled.
14:24 For I say unto you, That none of those men which were
bidden shall taste of my supper.
14:25 And there went great multitudes with him: and he turned,
and said unto them,
14:26 If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and
mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea,
and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.
14:27 And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me,
cannot be my disciple.
14:28 For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not
down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient
to finish it?
14:29 Lest haply, after he hath laid the foundation, and is not
able to finish it, all that behold it begin to mock him,
14:30 Saying, This man began to build, and was not able to
14:31 Or what king, going to make war against another king,
sitteth not down first, and consulteth whether he be able with
ten thousand to meet him that cometh against him with twenty
14:32 Or else, while the other is yet a great way off, he
sendeth an ambassage, and desireth conditions of peace.
14:33 So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all
that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.
14:34 Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his savour,
wherewith shall it be seasoned?
14:35 It is neither fit for the land, nor yet for the dunghill;
but men cast it out. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.
