Luke 7


7:1 Now when he had ended all his sayings in the audience of the
 people, he entered into Capernaum.
7:2 And a certain centurion's servant, who was dear to him, was
 sick, and ready to die.
7:3 And when he heard of Jesus, he sent to him the elders of the
 Jews, beseeching him that he would come and heal his servant.
7:4 And when they came to Jesus, they besought him earnestly,
 saying, That he was worthy for whom he should do this:
7:5 For he loveth our nation, and he hath built us a synagogue.
7:6 Then Jesus went with them. And when he was now not far from
 the house, the centurion sent friends to him, saying to him,
 Lord, trouble not thyself: for I am not worthy that thou
 shouldest enter under my roof;
7:7 Wherefore neither thought I myself worthy to come to thee;
 but say in a word, and my servant shall be healed.
7:8 For I also am a man set under authority, having under me
 soldiers, and I say to one, Go, and he goeth; and to another,
 Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth
 [it].
7:9 When Jesus heard these things, he marveled at him, and
 turned himself about and said to the people that followed him,
 I say to you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in
 Israel.
7:10 And they that were sent, returning to the house, found the
 servant well that had been sick.
7:11 And it came to pass the day after, that he went into a city
 called Nain: and many of his disciples went with him, and many
 people.
7:12 Now when he came nigh to the gate of the city, behold,
 there was a dead man carried out, the only son of his mother,
 and she was a widow: and many people of the city were with her.
7:13 And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her, and
 said to her, Weep not.
7:14 And he came and touched the bier: And they that bore [him]
 stood still. And he said, Young man, I say to thee, Arise.
7:15 And he that was dead sat up, and began to speak, and he
 delivered him to his mother.
7:16 And there came a fear on all: and they glorified God,
 saying, That a great prophet hath risen among us; and, That God
 hath visited his people.
7:17 And this rumor of him went forth throughout all Judea, and
 throughout all the neighboring region.
7:18 And the disciples of John informed him of all these things.
7:19 And John calling two of his disciples sent [them] to Jesus,
 saying, Art thou he that should come? or look we for another?
7:20 When the men had come to him, they said, John the Baptist
 hath sent us to thee, saying, Art thou he that should come? or
 look we for another?
7:21 And in that same hour he cured many of [their] infirmities,
 and diseases, and of evil spirits; and to many [that were]
 blind he gave sight.
7:22 Then Jesus answering, said to them, Go, and tell John what
 things ye have seen and heard; that the blind see, the lame
 walk, lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised,
 to the poor the gospel is preached.
7:23 And blessed is [he], to whom I shall not be a stumbling
 block.
7:24 And when the messengers of John had departed, he began to
 speak to the people concerning John, What went ye out into the
 wilderness to see? A reed shaken with the wind?
7:25 But what went ye out to see? A man clothed in soft raiment?
 behold, they who are gorgeously appareled, and live delicately,
 are in kings' courts.
7:26 But what went ye out to see? A prophet? Yes, I say to you,
 and much more than a prophet.
7:27 This is [he], concerning whom it is written, Behold, I send
 my messenger before thy face, who shall prepare thy way before
 thee.
7:28 For I say to you, Among those that are born of women, there
 is not a greater prophet than John the Baptist: but he that is
 least in the kingdom of God, is greater than he.
7:29 And all the people that heard [him], and the publicans,
 justified God, being baptized with the baptism of John.
7:30 But the Pharisees and lawyers rejected the counsel of God
 against themselves, being not baptized by him.
7:31 And the Lord said, To what then shall I liken the men of
 this generation? and to what are they like?
7:32 They are like children sitting in the market-place, and
 calling one to another, and saying, We have piped to you, and
 ye have not danced; we have mourned to you, and ye have not
 wept.
7:33 For John the Baptist came neither eating bread, nor
 drinking wine; and ye say, He hath a demon.
7:34 The Son of man is come eating and drinking; and ye say,
 Behold, a gluttonous man, and a wine-bibber, a friend of
 publicans and sinners.
7:35 But wisdom is justified by all her children.
7:36 And one of the Pharisees desired him that he would eat with
 him. And he went into the Pharisee's house, and sat down at
 table.
7:37 And behold, a woman in the city, who was a sinner, when she
 knew that [Jesus] sat at table in the Pharisee's house, brought
 an alabaster-box of ointment,
7:38 And stood at his feet behind [him] weeping, and began to
 wash his feet with tears, and wiped [them] with the hairs of
 her head, and kissed his feet, and anointed [them] with the
 ointment.
7:39 Now when the Pharisee who had invited him, saw [it], he
 spoke within himself, saying, This man, if he were a prophet,
 would have known who, and what manner of woman [this is] that
 toucheth him, for she is a sinner.
7:40 And Jesus answering, said to him, Simon, I have somewhat to
 say to thee. And he saith, Master, speak.
7:41 There was a certain creditor, who had two debtors: the one
 owed five hundred pence, and the other fifty.
7:42 And when they had nothing to pay, he frankly forgave them
 both. Tell me therefore, which of them will love him most?
7:43 Simon answered and said, I suppose that [he], to whom he
 forgave most. And he said to him, Thou hast rightly judged.
7:44 And he turned to the woman, and said to Simon, Seest thou
 this woman? I entered into thy house, thou gavest me no water
 for my feet: but she hath washed my feet with tears, and wiped
 [them] with the hairs of her head.
7:45 Thou gavest me no kiss: but this woman, since the time I
 came in, hath not ceased to kiss my feet.
7:46 My head with oil thou didst not anoint: but this woman hath
 anointed my feet with ointment.
7:47 Wherefore I say to thee, Her sins, which are many, are
 forgiven; for she loved much: but to whom little is forgiven,
 [the same] loveth little.
7:48 And he said to her, Thy sins are forgiven.
7:49 And they that sat at table with him, began to say within
 themselves, Who is this that forgiveth sins also?
7:50 And he said to the woman, Thy faith hath saved thee; go in
 peace.
