Call to Repent1 Now on the same occasion there were some present who reported to Him about the Galileans whose blood a Pilate had ▼
▼ I.e. shed along withmixed with their sacrifices. 2 And Jesus said to them, c “Do you suppose that these Galileans were greater sinners than all other Galileans because they suffered this fate? 3 “I tell you, no, but unless you ▼
▼ Or are repentantrepent, you will all likewise perish. 4 “Or do you suppose that those eighteen on whom the tower in e Siloam fell and killed them were worse ▼
▼ Lit debtors, g culprits than all the men who live in Jerusalem? 5 “I tell you, no, but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish.” 6 And He began telling this parable: “A man had h a fig tree which had been planted in his vineyard; and he came looking for fruit on it and did not find any. 7 “And he said to the vineyard-keeper, ‘Behold, for three years I have come looking for fruit on this fig tree ▼
▼ Lit and I do not findwithout finding any. j Cut it down! Why does it even use up the ground?’ 8 “And he answered and said to him, ‘Let it alone, sir, for this year too, until I dig around it and put in fertilizer; 9 and if it bears fruit next year, fine; but if not, cut it down.’”
Healing on the Sabbath10 And He was k teaching in one of the synagogues on the Sabbath. 11 And there was a woman who for eighteen years had had l a sickness caused by a spirit; and she was bent double, and could not straighten up at all. 12 When Jesus saw her, He called her over and said to her, “Woman, you are freed from your sickness.” 13 And He m laid His hands on her; and immediately she was made erect again and began n glorifying God. 14 But o the synagogue official, indignant because Jesus p had healed on the Sabbath, began saying to the crowd in response, q “There are six days in which work should be done; so come during them and get healed, and not on the Sabbath day.” 15 But r the Lord answered him and said, “You hypocrites, s does not each of you on the Sabbath untie his ox or his donkey from the stall and lead him away to water him? 16 “And this woman, t a daughter of Abraham as she is, whom u Satan has bound for eighteen long years, should she not have been released from this bond on the Sabbath day?” 17 As He said this, all His opponents were being humiliated; and v the entire crowd was rejoicing over all the glorious things being done by Him.
Parables of Mustard Seed and Leaven18 So w He was saying, x “What is the kingdom of God like, and to what shall I compare it? 19 “It is like a mustard seed, which a man took and threw into his own garden; and it grew and became a tree, and y the birds of the ▼
▼ Or skyair nested in its branches.” 20 And again He said, aa “To what shall I compare the kingdom of God? 21 ab “It is like leaven, which a woman took and hid in ac three ▼
▼ Gr satapecks of flour until it was all leavened.”
Teaching in the Villages22 And He was passing through from one city and village to another, teaching, and ae proceeding on His way to Jerusalem. 23 And someone said to Him, “Lord, are there just a few who are being saved?” And He said to them, 24 af “Strive to enter through the narrow door; for many, I tell you, will seek to enter and will not be able. 25 “Once the head of the house gets up and ag shuts the door, and you begin to stand outside and knock on the door, saying, ‘ ah Lord, open up to us!’ then He will answer and say to you, ‘ ai I do not know where you are from.’ 26 “Then you will aj begin to say, ‘We ate and drank in Your presence, and You taught in our streets’; 27 and He will say, ‘I tell you, ak I do not know where you are from; al depart from Me, all you evildoers.’ 28 am “In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth when you see Abraham and Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of God, but yourselves being thrown out. 29 “And they an will come from east and west and from north and south, and will recline at the table in the kingdom of God. 30 “And behold, ao some are last who will be first and some are first who will be last.” 31 Just at that time some Pharisees approached, saying to Him, “Go away, leave here, for ap Herod wants to kill You.” 32 And He said to them, “Go and tell that fox, ‘Behold, I cast out demons and perform cures today and tomorrow, and the third day I ▼
▼ Or am perfected, ar reach My goal.’ 33 “Nevertheless as I must journey on today and tomorrow and the next day; for it cannot be that a at prophet would perish outside of Jerusalem. 34 au “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that kills the prophets and stones those sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together av just as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, and you would not have it! 35 “Behold, your house is left to you desolate; and I say to you, you will not see Me until the time comes when you say, ‘ aw Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!’”
