Luke 18:1-8

The Parable of the Persistent Widow

1And he told them a parable to the effect that they ought aalways to pray and not blose heart. 2He said, In a certain city there was a judge who cneither feared God nor respected man. 3And there was a widow in that city who kept coming to him and saying, ‘Give me justice against my adversary.’ 4For a while he refused, but afterward he said to himself dThough I neither fear God nor respect man, 5yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will give her justice, so that she will not beat me down by her continual coming.’” 6And the Lord said, Hear what the unrighteous judge says. 7And ewill not God give justice to fhis elect gwho cry to him day and night? h , iWill he delay long over them? 8I tell you, he will give justice to them jspeedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, kwill he find faith on earth?”
