Luke Chapter 13
1 There were present at that season some that told him of theGalilaeanswhose blood Pilate had mingled with theirsacrifices.
2 And Jesus answering said unto themSuppose ye that theseGalilaeans were sinners above all the Galilaeansbecause theysuffered such things
3 I tell youNaybutexcept ye repentye shall all likewiseperish.
4 Or those eighteenupon whom the tower in Siloam fellandslew themthink ye that they were sinners above all men thatdwelt in Jerusalem
5 I tell youNaybutexcept ye repentye shall all likewiseperish.
6 He spake also this parableA certain man had a fig treeplanted in his vineyardand he came and sought fruit thereonand found none.
7 Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyardBeholdthesethree years I come seeking fruit on this fig treeand findnonecut it downwhy cumbereth it the ground
8 And he answering said unto himLordlet it alone this yearalsotill I shall dig about itand dung it
9 And if it bear fruitwelland if notthen after that thoushalt cut it down.
10 And he was teaching in one of the synagogues on the sabbath.
11 Andbeholdthere was a woman which had a spirit of infirmityeighteen yearsand was bowed togetherand could in no wiselift up herself.
12 And when Jesus saw herhe called her to himand said untoherWomanthou art loosed from thine infirmity.
13 And he laid his hands on herand immediately she was madestraightand glorified God.
14 And the ruler of the synagogue answered with indignation because that Jesus had healed on the sabbath dayand saidunto the peopleThere are six days in which men ought toworkin them therefore come and be healedand not on thesabbath day.
15 The Lord then answered himand saidThou hypocritedoth noteach one of you on the sabbath loose his ox or his ass fromthe stalland lead him away to watering
16 And ought not this womanbeing a daughter of AbrahamwhomSatan hath boundlothese eighteen yearsbe loosed fromthis bond on the sabbath day
17 And when he had said these thingsall his adversaries wereashamedand all the people rejoiced for all the gloriousthings that were done by him.
18 Then said heUnto what is the kingdom of God likeandwhereunto shall I resemble it
19 It is like a grain of mustard seedwhich a man tookand castinto his gardenand it grewand waxed a great treeand thefowls of the air lodged in the branches of it.
20 And again he saidWhereunto shall I liken the kingdom of God
21 It is like leavenwhich a woman took and hid in threemeasures of mealtill the whole was leavened.
22 And he went through the cities and villagesteachingandjourneying toward Jerusalem.
23 Then said one unto himLordare there few that be savedAndhe said unto them
24 Strive to enter in at the strait gatefor manyI say untoyouwill seek to enter inand shall not be able.
25 When once the master of the house is risen upand hath shutto the doorand ye begin to stand withoutand to knock atthe doorsayingLordLordopen unto usand he shallanswer and say unto youI know you not whence ye are
26 Then shall ye begin to sayWe have eaten and drunk in thypresenceand thou hast taught in our streets.
27 But he shall sayI tell youI know you not whence ye aredepart from meall ye workers of iniquity.
28 There shall be weeping and gnashing of teethwhen ye shallsee Abrahamand Isaacand Jacoband all the prophetsinthe kingdom of Godand you yourselves thrust out.
29 And they shall come from the eastand from the westand fromthe northand from the southand shall sit down in thekingdom of God.
30 Andbeholdthere are last which shall be firstand thereare first which shall be last.
31 The same day there came certain of the Phariseessaying untohimGet thee outand depart hencefor Herod will kill thee.
32 And he said unto themGo yeand tell that foxBeholdIcast out devilsand I do cures to day and to morrowand thethird day I shall be perfected.
33 Nevertheless I must walk to dayand to morrowand the dayfollowingfor it cannot be that a prophet perish out ofJerusalem.
34 O JerusalemJerusalemwhich killest the prophetsandstonest them that are sent unto theehow often would I havegathered thy children togetheras a hen doth gather her broodunder her wingsand ye would not
35 Beholdyour house is left unto you desolateand verily I sayunto youYe shall not see meuntil the time come when yeshall sayBlessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.
