13:1 There were present at that season some that told him of the
Galileans, whose blood Pilate had mingled with their
13:2 And Jesus answering, said to them, Suppose ye that these
Galileans were sinners above all the Galileans, because they
suffered such things?
13:3 I tell you, No; but except ye repent, ye shall all likewise
13:4 Or those eighteen, upon whom the tower in Siloam fell, and
killed them, think ye that they were sinners above all men that
dwelt in Jerusalem?
13:5 I tell you, No; but, except ye repent, ye shall all
13:6 He spoke also this parable: A certain [man] had a fig-tree
planted in his vineyard; and he came and sought fruit on it,
and found none.
13:7 Then said he to the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these
three years I come seeking fruit on this fig-tree, and find
none: cut it down; why cumbereth it the ground?
13:8 And he answering, said to him, Lord, let it alone this year
also, till I shall dig about it, and dung [it]:
13:9 And if it shall bear fruit, [well]: and if not, [then]
after that thou shalt cut it down.
13:10 And he was teaching in one of the synagogues on the
13:11 And behold, there was a woman who had a spirit of
infirmity eighteen years, and was bowed together, and could in
no wise raise [herself].
13:12 And when Jesus saw her, he called [her to him], and said
to her, Woman, thou art loosed from thy infirmity.
13:13 And he laid [his] hands on her: and immediately she was
made straight, and glorified God.
13:14 And the ruler of the synagogue answered with indignation,
because Jesus had healed on the sabbath, and said to the
people, There are six days in which men ought to work: in them
therefore come and be healed, and not on the sabbath.
13:15 The Lord then answered him, and said, [Thou] hypocrite,
doth not each one of you on the sabbath loose his ox or [his]
ass from the stall, and lead [him] away to watering?
13:16 And ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham,
whom Satan hath bound, lo, these eighteen years, to be loosed
from this bond on the Sabbath?
13:17 And when he had said these things, all his adversaries
were ashamed: and all the people rejoiced for all the glorious
things that were done by him.
13:18 Then said he, To what is the kingdom of God like? and to
what shall I resemble it?
13:19 It is like a grain of mustard-seed, which a man took, and
cast into his garden, and it grew, and became a great tree; and
the fowls of the air lodged in the branches of it.
13:20 And again he said, To what shall I liken the kingdom of
13:21 It is like leaven, which a woman took and hid in three
measures of meal, till the whole was leavened.
13:22 And he went through the cities and villages, teaching, and
journeying towards Jerusalem.
13:23 Then said one to him, Lord, are there few that are saved?
And he said to them,
13:24 Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say to
you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.
13:25 When once the master of the house hath risen, and hath
shut the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at
the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us; and he will answer
and say to you, I know you not whence ye are:
13:26 Then ye will begin to say, We have eaten and drank in thy
presence, and thou hast taught in our streets.
13:27 But he will say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are:
depart from me, all [ye] workers of iniquity.
13:28 There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth when ye shall
see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets in the
kingdom of God, and you [yourselves] excluded.
13:29 And they will come from the east, and [from] the west, and
from the north, and [from] the south, and will sit down in the
kingdom of God.
13:30 And behold, there are last, who shall be first; and there
are first who shall be last.
13:31 The same day there came certain of the Pharisees, saying
to him, Go out, and depart hence; for Herod will kill thee.
13:32 And he said to them, Go ye and tell that fox, Behold, I
cast out demons, and I do cures to-day and to-morrow, and the
third [day] I shall be perfected.
13:33 Nevertheless, I must walk to-day and to-morrow, and the
[day] following: for it cannot be that a prophet should perish
out of Jerusalem.
13:34 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, that killest the prophets, and
stonest them that are sent to thee; how often would I have
gathered thy children, as a hen [gathereth] her brood under
[her] wings, and ye would not!
13:35 Behold, your house is left to you desolate. And verily I
say to you, ye shall not see me, until [the time shall] come
when ye shall say, Blessed [is] he that cometh in the name of
