Luke 7:1-10

Jesus Heals a Centurion’s Servant

1After he had finished all his sayings in the hearing of the people a  he entered Capernaum. 2Now a centurion had a servant
Greek bondservant; also verses 3, 8, 10
who was sick and at the point of death, who was highly valued by him.
3When the centurion
Greek he
heard about Jesus, d  he sent to him elders of the Jews, asking him to come and heal his servant.
4And when they came to Jesus, they pleaded with him earnestly, saying e  “He is worthy to have you do this for him, 5for he loves our nation, and he is the one who built us f  our synagogue.” 6And Jesus went with them. When he was not far from the house, the centurion sent friends, saying to him, “Lord g  do not trouble yourself, for I am not worthy to have you come under my roof. 7Therefore I did not presume to come to you. But h  say the word, and let my servant be healed. 8For I too am a man set under authority, with soldiers under me: and I say to one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; and to another, ‘Come,’ and he comes; and to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.” 9When Jesus heard these things, i  he marveled at him, and turning to the crowd that followed him, said, “I tell you, not even in Israel have I found such j  faith.” 10And when those who had been sent returned to the house, they found the servant well.
