1: Now when he had ended all his sayings in the audience of the people, he entered into Capernaum. 2: And a certain centurion's servant, who was dear to him, was sick, and ready to die. 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. 4: And when they came to Jesus, they besought him earnestly, saying, That he was worthy for whom he should do this: 5: For he loveth our nation, and he hath built us a synagogue. 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: Wherefore neither thought I myself worthy to come to thee; but say in a word, and my servant shall be healed. 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]. 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. 10: And they that were sent, returning to the house, found the servant well that had been sick. 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. 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. 13: And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her, and said to her, Weep not. 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. 15: And he that was dead sat up, and began to speak, and he delivered him to his mother. 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. 17: And this rumor of him went forth throughout all Judea, and throughout all the neighboring region. 18: And the disciples of John informed him of all these things. 19: And John calling two of his disciples sent [them] to Jesus, saying, Art thou he that should come? or look we for another? 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? 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. 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. 23: And blessed is [he], to whom I shall not be a stumbling block. 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? 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. 26: But what went ye out to see? A prophet? Yes, I say to you, and much more than a prophet. 27: This is [he], concerning whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, who shall prepare thy way before thee. 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. 29: And all the people that heard [him], and the publicans, justified God, being baptized with the baptism of John. 30: But the Pharisees and lawyers rejected the counsel of God against themselves, being not baptized by him. 31: And the Lord said, To what then shall I liken the men of this generation? and to what are they like? 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. 33: For John the Baptist came neither eating bread, nor drinking wine; and ye say, He hath a demon. 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. 35: But wisdom is justified by all her children. 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. 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, 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. 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. 40: And Jesus answering, said to him, Simon, I have somewhat to say to thee. And he saith, Master, speak. 41: There was a certain creditor, who had two debtors: the one owed five hundred pence, and the other fifty. 42: And when they had nothing to pay, he frankly forgave them both. Tell me therefore, which of them will love him most? 43: Simon answered and said, I suppose that [he], to whom he forgave most. And he said to him, Thou hast rightly judged. 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. 45: Thou gavest me no kiss: but this woman, since the time I came in, hath not ceased to kiss my feet. 46: My head with oil thou didst not anoint: but this woman hath anointed my feet with ointment. 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. 48: And he said to her, Thy sins are forgiven. 49: And they that sat at table with him, began to say within themselves, Who is this that forgiveth sins also? 50: And he said to the woman, Thy faith hath saved thee; go in peace.
