Luke 13

1There were certaine men present at the same season, that shewed him of the Galileans, whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices.

2And Iesus answered, and saide vnto them, Suppose ye, that these Galileans were greater sinners then al the other Galileans, because they haue suffered such things?

3I tell you, nay: but except ye amend your liues, ye shall all likewise perish.

4Or thinke you that those eighteene, vpon whom the tower in Siloam fell, and slewe them, were sinners aboue all men that dwel in Hierusalem?

5I tell you, nay: but except ye amend your liues, ye shall all likewise perish.

6He spake also this parable, A certaine man had a figge tree planted in his vineyard: and he came and sought fruite thereon, and found none.

7Then said he to the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, this three yeeres haue I come and sought fruite of this figge tree, and finde none: cut it downe: why keepeth it also the ground barren?

8And he answered, and said vnto him, Lord, let it alone this yeere also, till I digge round about it, and doung it.

9And if it beare fruite, well: if not, then after thou shalt cut it downe.

10And he taught in one of ye Synagogues on the Sabbath day.

11And behold, there was a woman which had a spirit of infirmitie eighteene yeeres, and was bowed together, and coulde not lift vp her selfe in any wise.

12When Iesus sawe her, he called her to him, and said to her, Woman, thou art loosed from thy disease.

13And he laide his handes on her, and immediately she was made straight againe, and glorified God.

14And the ruler of the Synagogue answered with indignation, because that Iesus healed on the Sabbath day, and said vnto the people, There are sixe dayes in which men ought to worke: in them therefore come and be healed, and not on the Sabbath day.

15Then answered him the Lord, and said, Hypocrite, doth not eche one of you on the Sabbath day loose his oxe or his asse from the stall, and leade him away to the water?

16And ought not this daughter of Abraham, whom Satan had bound, loe, eighteene yeeres, be loosed from this bond on the Sabbath day?

17And when he said these things, all his aduersaries were ashamed: but all the people reioyced at all the excellent things, that were done by him.

18Then said he, What is the kingdome of God like? or whereto shall I compare it?

19It is like a graine of mustard seede, which a man tooke and sowed in his garden, and it grewe, and waxed a great tree, and the foules of the heauen made nestes in the branches thereof.

20And againe he said, Whereunto shall I liken the kingdome of God?

21It is like leauen, which a woman tooke, and hid in three peckes of floure, till all was leauened.

22And he went through all cities and townes, teaching, and iourneying towards Hierusalem.

23Then saide one vnto him, Lord, are there fewe that shalbe saued? And he said vnto them,

24Striue to enter in at the straite gate: for many, I say vnto you, will seeke to enter in, and shall not be able.

25When the good man of the house is risen vp, and hath shut to the doore, and ye begin to stand without, and to knocke at the doore, saying, Lord, Lord, open to vs, and he shall answere and say vnto you, I know you not whence ye are,

26Then shall ye begin to say, We haue eaten and drunke in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streetes.

27But he shall say, I tell you, I knowe you not whence ye are: depart from me, all ye workers of iniquitie.

28There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth when ye shall see Abraham and Isaac, and Iacob, and all the Prophets in the kingdome of God, and your selues thrust out at doores.

29Then shall come many from the East, and from the West, and from the North, and from the South, and shall sit at Table in the kingdome of God.

30And beholde, there are last, which shalbe first, and there are first, which shalbe last.

31The same day there came certaine Pharises, and said vnto him, Depart, and goe hence: for Herod will kill thee.

32Then said he vnto them, Goe ye and tell that foxe, Beholde, I cast out deuils, and will heale still to day, and to morowe, and the third day I shalbe perfected.

33Neuerthelesse I must walke to day, and to morowe, and the day following: for it cannot be that a Prophet should perish out of Hierusalem.

34O Hierusalem, Hierusalem, which killest the Prophets, and stonest them that are sent to thee, howe often would I haue gathered thy children together, as the henne gathereth her brood vnder her wings, and ye would not!

35Beholde, your house is left vnto you desolate: and verely I tell you, ye shall not see me vntill the time come that ye shall say, Blessed is he that commeth in the Name of the Lord.
