Luke 6

CHAPTER 6

Jesus is Lord of the Sabbath

And it came to pass on Sabbath following the great one, he traveled through the corn-fields; and [2were plucking 1his disciples] the ears of corn and were eating them by rubbing in pieces with their hands. And some of the Pharisees said to them, Why do you do what is not allowed to do on the Sabbaths? And answering to them Jesus said, Neither this did you read, what David did, when he hungered himself and the ones [2with 3him 1being]? How he entered into the house of God, and the bread loaves of the place setting he took, and he ate, and he gave also to the ones with him, which is not allowed to be eaten except [3only 1the 2priests]? And he said to them that, [4is Lord 1The 2son 3of man] also of the Sabbath.

Jesus Heals on the Sabbath

And it came to pass also on another Sabbath for him to enter into the synagogue and to teach. And there was there a man, and [3hand 1his 2right] was withered. And they closely watched him -- the scribes and the Pharisees, to see if [3on 4the 5Sabbath 1he will cure 2him], that they should find a charge against him. But he knew their thoughts, and he said to the man, to the one [3withered 1having 2the] hand, Arise, and stand in the midst! And he having risen up stood. Then said Jesus to them, I will ask you, What is allowed to the Sabbaths -- to do good or to do evil? [2a soul 1to preserve] or to destroy? 10 And having looked round about on all of them, he said to the man, Stretch out your hand! And he did thus. And [2was restored 1his hand] in health as the other. 11 But they were filled with thoughtlessness; and they discussed with one another what they might do to Jesus.

Jesus Chooses the Twelve Disciples

12 And it came to pass in those days, he went forth into the mountain to pray; and he was spending the night in the prayer of God. 13 And when it became day, he called out to his disciples, even choosing from them twelve, whom also [2apostles 1he named] -- 14 Simon, whom also he named Peter, and Andrew his brother, James and John, Philip and Bartholomew, 15 Matthew and Thomas, James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon the one being called Zealot, 16 Judas of James, and Judas Iscariot, who also became the betrayer.

Jesus Heals Many

17 And going down with them, he stopped at [2place 1a flat], and a multitude of his disciples, and [2multitude 1a great] of the people from all Judea, and Jerusalem, and of the coast of Tyre and Sidon, which came to hear him, and to be healed of their diseases, 18 and the ones being mobbed by [2spirits 1unclean]; and they were being cured. 19 And all the multitude sought to touch him, for power by him came forth and healed all.

Blessings and Woes

20 And he, lifting up his eyes unto his disciples, said, Blessed are the poor, for yours is the kingdom of God. 21 Blessed are the ones hungering now, for you shall be filled. Blessed are the ones weeping now, for you shall laugh. 22 Blessed are you whenever [2should detest 3you 1men], and whenever they should separate you, and should berate you, and should cast out your name as wicked, because of the son of man. 23 Rejoice in that day, and leap! for behold your wage is great in the heaven. [2according to 3these things 1For 5did 6to the 7prophets 4their fathers]. 24 Furthermore, woe to you, to the rich, for you receive your comfort. 25 Woe to you, the ones being filled up, for you shall hunger. Woe to you, the ones laughing now, for you shall mourn and weep. 26 Woe whenever [4well 5of you 3should speak 1the 2men], [2according to 3these things 1for 5did 6to the 7false prophets 4their fathers].

Jesus Teaches on Love

27 But to you I say, to the ones hearing, Love your enemies! [2well 1Do] to the ones detesting you! 28 Bless the ones cursing you! And pray for the ones threatening you! 29 To the one beating you upon the jaw, furnish also the other! And from the one taking away your cloak, also the inner garment you should not restrain. 30 And to every one asking you, give! And from the one taking away your things, do not exact payment! 31 And as you want that [2should do 3to you 1men], you also do to them in like manner! 32 And if you love the ones loving you, what [3to you 1favor 2is it]? for even the sinners [2the ones 3loving 4them 1love]. 33 And if you should do good for the ones doing you good, what [3to you 1favor 2is it]? for even the sinners [2the 3same 1do]. 34 And if you should lend from whom you hope to recover, what [3to you 1favor 2is it]? for even sinners [2to sinners 1lend], that they should recover what is equal. 35 Furthermore, love your enemies, and do good, and lend [2nothing 1despairing for]! and [2will be 1your wage] great, and you will be sons of the highest. For he is gracious upon the ungracious and wicked. 36 You become then pitying, as also your father is pitying! 37 And judge not! and in no way should you be judged. Condemn not! and in no way should you be condemned. Dismiss! and you will be dismissed. 38 Give! and it shall be given to you! [2measure 1In good], being compressed and shaken and overrunning, shall they give unto your bosom. For the same measure which you measure, it will be measured back to you. 39 And he spoke a parable to them, In anything is [2able 1the blind] [2the blind 1to guide]? Shall not both [2into 3a cistern 1fall]? 40 [2is not 1A disciple] above his teacher; but by fashion every one will be as his teacher. 41 But why do you see the speck, the one in the eye of your brother, but the beam, the one in your own eye you do not mind? 42 Or how are you able to say to your brother, O brother, allow me to cast out the speck, the one in your eye, and yourself [3the 5in 6your eye 4beam 1are not 2seeing]? Hypocrite, cast out first the beam from your eye, and then you shall see clearly to cast out the speck, the one in the eye of your brother! 43 [3not 1For 2there is 5tree 4a good] producing [2fruit 1rotten]; nor [2tree 1a rotten] producing [2fruit 1good]. 44 For each tree from its own fruit is known. For not from thorn-bushes do they collect figs, nor from a bush do they gather the vintage grape. 45 The good man from out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth the good thing; and the wicked man from out of the wicked treasure of his heart brings forth the bad; for from the abundance of the heart [2speaks 1his mouth].

Build on the Rock

46 And why do you call me, O Lord, O Lord, and do not do what I say? 47 Every one coming to me, and hearing my words, and doing them, I will show plainly to you what he is likened to. 48 He is likened to a man building a house, who dug, and deepened, and set a foundation upon the rock. And an inundation having become, [3beat against 1the 2river] that house, and was not strong enough to shake it; for it was founded upon the rock. 49 And the one hearing, and not doing, is likened to a man having built a house upon the ground without the help of a foundation, which [3beat against 1the 2river], and immediately it fell, and [4became 1the 2breakup 3of that house] great.
