Luke 7


The Believing Centurion

And when he fulfilled all his sayings in the hearing of the people, he entered into Capernaum. [4of a centurion 1And 2a certain 3servant 6an illness 5having], about to come to an end, who was of value to him; and having heard concerning Jesus, he sent to him elders of the Jews, asking him that having come he should preserve his servant. And the ones having come to Jesus, appealed to him diligently, saying that, [5worthy 4is 1The one whom 2he shall grant 3this]. For he loves our nation; and the synagogue he himself built for us. And Jesus went with them; but already he not being far at a distance from the house, [3sent forth 5to 6him 1the 2centurion 4friends], saying to him, O Lord, be not inconvenienced! for not am I fit that [2under 3my roof 1you should enter]. Therefore not even myself I deem worthy [2to 3you 1to come], but say the word! and [2shall be healed 1my servant]. For also I am a man [2under 3authority 1ordering], having under myself soldiers, and I say to this one, Go! and he goes; and to another, Come! and he comes; and to my servant, Do this! and he does. And hearing these things Jesus marveled at him; and turning to [2following 3him 1the multitude] said, I say to you, not even in Israel [2so great 3a belief 1found I]. 10 And [3having returned 1the ones 2having been sent forth] unto the house, found the weakened servant being in health.

The Widow's Son Raised to Life

11 And it came to pass in the next place, he went into a city being called Nain; and going with him [2of his disciples 1were a fit amount], and [2multitude 1a great]. 12 And as he approached to the gate of the city, that behold, [2was conveyed 1one having died], a son, an only child of his mother, and she was a widow; and a multitude of the city, a fit amount was with her. 13 And beholding her, the Lord was moved with compassion over her, and he said to her, Do not weep! 14 And coming forward he touched the coffin, and the ones bearing it stopped. And he said, O young man, to you I say, Arise! 15 And [3sat erect 1the 2dead one], and began to speak; and he gave him to his mother. 16 [3took hold 1And 2fear] of all, and they glorified God, saying that, [2prophet 1A great] has been risen up among us; and that, God visited his people. 17 And went forth this word in the whole of Judea concerning him, and in all the place round about.

John the Baptist Sends Disciples to Jesus

18 And [2reported 3to John, 1his disciples], concerning all these things. 19 And calling on a certain two of his disciples, John sent them forth to Jesus, saying, Are you the coming one, or another should we expect? 20 And having come to him, the men said, John the baptist has sent us to you, saying, Are you the coming one, or another should we expect? 21 [2in 3the same 1And] hour he cured many from diseases, and scourges, and [2spirits 1evil]; and [2blind 1to many] he granted to see. 22 And answering Jesus said to them, Having gone, report to John what you saw and heard! that blind gained sight, lame walk, lepers are cleansed, deaf-mutes hear, dead are raised, poor are being announced good news; 23 and blessed is who ever should not be stumbled in me. 24 [5having gone forth 1And 2the 3messengers 4of John], he began to speak to the multitudes concerning John, What have you come forth into the wilderness to view? A reed by the wind being shaken? 25 But what have you come forth to behold? A man in soft garments being clothed? Behold, the ones in [2clothes 1noble] and [2in luxury 1existing 4in 5the 6palaces 3are]. 26 But what have you come forth to behold? A prophet? Yes, I say to you, and more extra a prophet. 27 This is he concerning of which it has been written, Behold, I send my messenger before your face, who shall carefully prepare your way before you. 28 For I say to you, a greater [2among 1born] women than the prophet John the baptist no one is. But the lesser in the kingdom of God [2greater 3than he 1is]. 29 And all the people having heard, and the tax collectors, justified God, having been immersed in the immersion of John. 30 But the Pharisees and the legal experts, the counsel of God, disregarded for themselves, not having been immersed by him. 31 What then shall I liken the men of this generation? and to what are they likened? 32 They are likened to children, to the ones in the market sitting down, and calling out to one another, and they say, We piped to you, and you danced not; we lamented to you, and you wept not. 33 [5has come 1For 2John 3the 4baptist] neither [2bread 1eating] nor [2wine 1drinking]; and you say, [2a demon 1He has]. 34 [4has come 1The 2son 3of man] eating and drinking; and you say, Behold, a man glutton, and a winebibber, a friend of tax collectors and sinners. 35 And [2was justified 1wisdom] by [2her children 1all].

A Woman Anoints Jesus' Feet

36 [5asked 1And 2a certain one 6him 3of the 4Pharisees] that he should eat with him. And entering into the house of the Pharisee, he reclined. 37 And behold, a woman in the city, who was a sinner, realizing that he reclined in the house of the Pharisee, carried an alabaster jar of perfumed liquid, 38 and stationed by his feet behind weeping, began to rain his feet with tears, and with the hair of her head she wiped clean and kissed his feet, and anointed with the perfumed liquid. 39 And beholding, the Pharisee having invited him, said to himself, saying, If this one was a prophet, he would have known who and what kind of woman she is who touches him, that she is a sinner. 40 And responding Jesus said to him, Simon, I have [3to you 1something 2to say]. And he says, Teacher, speak! 41 [2two 3debtors 1There were] to a certain money-lender; the one owed [2denarii 1five hundred], and the other fifty. 42 [3not 4having anything 1And 2they] to give back, both he granted pardon. Which then of them, tell, [2more 1loves him]? 43 And answering Simon said, I undertake that to whom the more he granted pardon. And he said to him, Rightly you judged. 44 And having turned to the woman, he said to Simon, You see this woman? I entered into your house, water for my feet you gave not; but she [2tears 1rained] for my feet, and with the hair of her head wiped clean. 45 [4a kiss 3to me 1You did not 2give]; but this woman from which time I entered, stopped not kissing my feet. 46 [3with oil 2my head 1You anointed not]; but she with perfumed liquid anointed my feet. 47 Of which favor, I say to you, [4have been forgiven 3sins 1her 2many], for she loved much; but to whom little is forgiven, [2little 1loves]. 48 And he said to her, [4have been forgiven 3of you 1The 2sins]. 49 And [3began 1the ones 2reclining together with him] to say among themselves, Who is this who even [2sins 1forgives]? 50 And he said to the woman, the belief of yours has delivered you, go in peace!
