Luke Chapter 6
1 And it came to pass on the second sabbath after the first that he went through the corn fieldsand his disciplesplucked the ears of cornand did eatrubbing them in theirhands.
2 And certain of the Pharisees said unto themWhy do ye thatwhich is not lawful to do on the sabbath days
3 And Jesus answering them saidHave ye not read so much asthiswhat David didwhen himself was an hungredand theywhich were with him
4 How he went into the house of Godand did take and eat theshewbreadand gave also to them that were with himwhich itis not lawful to eat but for the priests alone
5 And he said unto themThat the Son of man is Lord also of thesabbath.
6 And it came to pass also on another sabbaththat he enteredinto the synagogue and taughtand there was a man whose righthand was withered.
7 And the scribes and Pharisees watched himwhether he wouldheal on the sabbath daythat they might find an accusationagainst him.
8 But he knew their thoughtsand said to the man which had thewithered handRise upand stand forth in the midst. And hearose and stood forth.
9 Then said Jesus unto themI will ask you one thingIs itlawful on the sabbath days to do goodor to do evilto savelifeor to destroy it
10 And looking round about upon them allhe said unto the manStretch forth thy hand. And he did soand his hand wasrestored whole as the other.
11 And they were filled with madnessand communed one withanother what they might do to Jesus.
12 And it came to pass in those daysthat he went out into amountain to prayand continued all night in prayer to God.
13 And when it was dayhe called unto him his disciplesand ofthem he chose twelvewhom also he named apostles
14 Simon whom he also named Peter and Andrew his brotherJames and JohnPhilip and Bartholomew
15 Matthew and ThomasJames the son of Alphaeusand Simoncalled Zelotes
16 And Judas the brother of Jamesand Judas Iscariotwhich alsowas the traitor.
17 And he came down with themand stood in the plainand thecompany of his disciplesand a great multitude of people outof all Judaea and Jerusalemand from the sea coast of Tyreand Sidonwhich came to hear himand to be healed of theirdiseases
18 And they that were vexed with unclean spiritsand they werehealed.
19 And the whole multitude sought to touch himfor there wentvirtue out of himand healed them all.
20 And he lifted up his eyes on his disciplesand saidBlessedbe ye poorfor yours is the kingdom of God.
21 Blessed are ye that hunger nowfor ye shall be filled.Blessed are ye that weep nowfor ye shall laugh.
22 Blessed are yewhen men shall hate youand when they shallseparate you from their companyand shall reproach youandcast out your name as evilfor the Son of man s sake.
23 Rejoice ye in that dayand leap for joyforbeholdyourreward is great in heavenfor in the like manner did theirfathers unto the prophets.
24 But woe unto you that are richfor ye have received yourconsolation.
25 Woe unto you that are fullfor ye shall hunger. Woe unto youthat laugh nowfor ye shall mourn and weep.
26 Woe unto youwhen all men shall speak well of youfor so didtheir fathers to the false prophets.
27 But I say unto you which hearLove your enemiesdo good tothem which hate you
28 Bless them that curse youand pray for them whichdespitefully use you.
29 And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also theotherand him that taketh away thy cloak forbid not to takethy coat also.
30 Give to every man that asketh of theeand of him that takethaway thy goods ask them not again.
31 And as ye would that men should do to youdo ye also to themlikewise.
32 For if ye love them which love youwhat thank have yeforsinners also love those that love them.
33 And if ye do good to them which do good to youwhat thankhave yefor sinners also do even the same.
34 And if ye lend to them of whom ye hope to receivewhat thankhave yefor sinners also lend to sinnersto receive as muchagain.
35 But love ye your enemiesand do goodand lendhoping fornothing againand your reward shall be greatand ye shall bethe children of the Highestfor he is kind unto theunthankful and to the evil.
36 Be ye therefore mercifulas your Father also is merciful.
37 Judge notand ye shall not be judgedcondemn notand yeshall not be condemnedforgiveand ye shall be forgiven
38 Giveand it shall be given unto yougood measurepresseddownand shaken togetherand running overshall men giveinto your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withalit shall be measured to you again.
39 And he spake a parable unto themCan the blind lead theblindshall they not both fall into the ditch
40 The disciple is not above his masterbut every one that isperfect shall be as his master.
41 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother s eyebut perceivest not the beam that is in thine own eye
42 Either how canst thou say to thy brotherBrotherlet me pullout the mote that is in thine eyewhen thou thyself beholdestnot the beam that is in thine own eyeThou hypocritecastout first the beam out of thine own eyeand then shalt thousee clearly to pull out the mote that is in thy brother s eye.
43 For a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruitneither dotha corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
44 For every tree is known by his own fruit. For of thorns men donot gather figsnor of a bramble bush gather they grapes.
45 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringethforth that which is goodand an evil man out of the eviltreasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evilforof the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.
46 And why call ye meLordLordand do not the things which Isay
47 Whosoever cometh to meand heareth my sayingsand doeththemI will shew you to whom he is like
48 He is like a man which built an houseand digged deepandlaid the foundation on a rockand when the flood arosethestream beat vehemently upon that houseand could not shakeitfor it was founded upon a rock.
49 But he that hearethand doeth notis like a man that withouta foundation built an house upon the earthagainst which thestream did beat vehementlyand immediately it felland theruin of that house was great.
