Gospel of Luke


Luke 14:1

And it came to pass, as he went into the house of one of the chief

Pharisees to eat bread on the sabbath day, that they watched him.

Luke 14:2

And, behold, there was a certain man before him which had the dropsy.

Luke 14:3

And Jesus answering spake unto the lawyers and Pharisees, saying, Is

it lawful to heal on the sabbath day?

Luke 14:4

And they held their peace. And he took him, and healed him, and let

him go;

Luke 14:5

And answered them, saying, Which of you shall have an ass or an ox

fallen into a pit, and will not straightway pull him out on the

sabbath day?

Luke 14:6

And they could not answer him again to these things.

Luke 14:7

And he put forth a parable to those which were bidden, when he marked

how they chose out the chief rooms; saying unto them,

Luke 14:8

When thou art bidden of any man to a wedding, sit not down in the

highest room; lest a more honourable man than thou be bidden of him;

Luke 14:9

And he that bade thee and him come and say to thee, Give this man

place; and thou begin with shame to take the lowest room.

Luke 14:10

But when thou art bidden, go and sit down in the lowest room; that

when he that bade thee cometh, he may say unto thee, Friend, go up

higher: then shalt thou have worship in the presence of them that sit

at meat with thee.

Luke 14:11

For whosoever exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth

himself shall be exalted.

Luke 14:12

Then said he also to him that bade him, When thou makest a dinner or

a supper, call not thy friends, nor thy brethren, neither thy

kinsmen, nor thy rich neighbours; lest they also bid thee again, and

a recompence be made thee.

Luke 14:13

But when thou makest a feast, call the poor, the maimed, the lame,

the blind:

Luke 14:14

And thou shalt be blessed; for they cannot recompense thee: for thou

shalt be recompensed at the resurrection of the just.

Luke 14:15

And when one of them that sat at meat with him heard these things, he

said unto him, Blessed is he that shall eat bread in the kingdom of


Luke 14:16

Then said he unto him, A certain man made a great supper, and bade


Luke 14:17

And sent his servant at supper time to say to them that were bidden,

Come; for all things are now ready.

Luke 14:18

And they all with one consent began to make excuse. The first said

unto him, I have bought a piece of ground, and I must needs go and

see it: I pray thee have me excused.

Luke 14:19

And another said, I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to prove

them: I pray thee have me excused.

Luke 14:20

And another said, I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come.

Luke 14:21

So that servant came, and shewed his lord these things. Then the

master of the house being angry said to his servant, Go out quickly

into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in hither the poor,

and the maimed, and the halt, and the blind.

Luke 14:22

And the servant said, Lord, it is done as thou hast commanded, and

yet there is room.

Luke 14:23

And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and

hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.

Luke 14:24

For I say unto you, That none of those men which were bidden shall

taste of my supper.

Luke 14:25

And there went great multitudes with him: and he turned, and said

unto them,

Luke 14:26

If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife,

and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also,

he cannot be my disciple.

Luke 14:27

And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be

my disciple.

Luke 14:28

For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first,

and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it?

Luke 14:29

Lest haply, after he hath laid the foundation, and is not able to

finish it, all that behold it begin to mock him,

Luke 14:30

Saying, This man began to build, and was not able to finish.

Luke 14:31

Or what king, going to make war against another king, sitteth not

down first, and consulteth whether he be able with ten thousand to

meet him that cometh against him with twenty thousand?

Luke 14:32

Or else, while the other is yet a great way off, he sendeth an

ambassage, and desireth conditions of peace.

Luke 14:33

So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he

hath, he cannot be my disciple.

Luke 14:34

Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall

it be seasoned?

Luke 14:35

It is neither fit for the land, nor yet for the dunghill; but men

cast it out. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.

Luke 15:1

Then drew near unto him all the publicans and sinners for to hear him.

Luke 15:2

And the Pharisees and scribes murmured, saying, This man receiveth

sinners, and eateth with them.

Luke 15:3

And he spake this parable unto them, saying,

Luke 15:4

What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them,

doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after

that which is lost, until he find it?

Luke 15:5

And when he hath found it, he layeth it on his shoulders, rejoicing.

Luke 15:6

And when he cometh home, he calleth together his friends and

neighbours, saying unto them, Rejoice with me; for I have found my

sheep which was lost.

Luke 15:7

I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner

that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which

need no repentance.

Luke 15:8

Either what woman having ten pieces of silver, if she lose one piece,

doth not light a candle, and sweep the house, and seek diligently

till she find it?

Luke 15:9

And when she hath found it, she calleth her friends and her

neighbours together, saying, Rejoice with me; for I have found the

piece which I had lost.

Luke 15:10

Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels

of God over one sinner that repenteth.

Luke 15:11

And he said, A certain man had two sons:

Luke 15:12

And the younger of them said to his father, Father, give me the

portion of goods that falleth to me. And he divided unto them his


Luke 15:13

And not many days after the younger son gathered all together, and

took his journey into a far country, and there wasted his substance

with riotous living.

Luke 15:14

And when he had spent all, there arose a mighty famine in that land;

and he began to be in want.

Luke 15:15

And he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country; and he

sent him into his fields to feed swine.

Luke 15:16

And he would fain have filled his belly with the husks that the swine

did eat: and no man gave unto him.

Luke 15:17

And when he came to himself, he said, How many hired servants of my

father's have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger!

Luke 15:18

I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I

have sinned against heaven, and before thee,

Luke 15:19

And am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy

hired servants.

Luke 15:20

And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way

off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his

neck, and kissed him.

Luke 15:21

And the son said unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and

in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son.

Luke 15:22

But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and

put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet:

Luke 15:23

And bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it; and let us eat, and be


Luke 15:24

For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is

found. And they began to be merry.

Luke 15:25

Now his elder son was in the field: and as he came and drew nigh to

the house, he heard musick and dancing.

Luke 15:26

And he called one of the servants, and asked what these things meant.

Luke 15:27

And he said unto him, Thy brother is come; and thy father hath killed

the fatted calf, because he hath received him safe and sound.

Luke 15:28

And he was angry, and would not go in: therefore came his father out,

and intreated him.

Luke 15:29

And he answering said to his father, Lo, these many years do I serve

thee, neither transgressed I at any time thy commandment: and yet

thou never gavest me a kid, that I might make merry with my friends:

Luke 15:30

But as soon as this thy son was come, which hath devoured thy living

with harlots, thou hast killed for him the fatted calf.

Luke 15:31

And he said unto him, Son, thou art ever with me, and all that I have

is thine.

Luke 15:32

It was meet that we should make merry, and be glad: for this thy

brother was dead, and is alive again; and was lost, and is found.

Luke 16:1

And he said also unto his disciples, There was a certain rich man,

which had a steward; and the same was accused unto him that he had

wasted his goods.

Luke 16:2

And he called him, and said unto him, How is it that I hear this of

thee? give an account of thy stewardship; for thou mayest be no

longer steward.

Luke 16:3

Then the steward said within himself, What shall I do? for my lord

taketh away from me the stewardship: I cannot dig; to beg I am


Luke 16:4

I am resolved what to do, that, when I am put out of the stewardship,

they may receive me into their houses.

Luke 16:5

So he called every one of his lord's debtors unto him, and said unto

the first, How much owest thou unto my lord?

Luke 16:6

And he said, An hundred measures of oil. And he said unto him, Take

thy bill, and sit down quickly, and write fifty.

Luke 16:7

Then said he to another, And how much owest thou? And he said, An

hundred measures of wheat. And he said unto him, Take thy bill, and

write fourscore.

Luke 16:8

And the lord commended the unjust steward, because he had done

wisely: for the children of this world are in their generation wiser

than the children of light.

Luke 16:9

And I say unto you, Make to yourselves friends of the mammon of

unrighteousness; that, when ye fail, they may receive you into

everlasting habitations.

Luke 16:10

He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much:

and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much.

Luke 16:11

If therefore ye have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who

will commit to your trust the true riches?

Luke 16:12

And if ye have not been faithful in that which is another man's, who

shall give you that which is your own?

Luke 16:13

No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one,

and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the

other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

Luke 16:14

And the Pharisees also, who were covetous, heard all these things:

and they derided him.

Luke 16:15

And he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before

men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed

among men is abomination in the sight of God.

Luke 16:16

The law and the prophets were until John: since that time the kingdom

of God is preached, and every man presseth into it.

Luke 16:17

And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass, than one tittle of the

law to fail.

Luke 16:18

Whosoever putteth away his wife, and marrieth another, committeth

adultery: and whosoever marrieth her that is put away from her

husband committeth adultery.

Luke 16:19

There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine

linen, and fared sumptuously every day:

Luke 16:20

And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his

gate, full of sores,

Luke 16:21

And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's

table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.

Luke 16:22

And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the

angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;

Luke 16:23

And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham

afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.

Luke 16:24

And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send

Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my

tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.

Luke 16:25

But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst

thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is

comforted, and thou art tormented.

Luke 16:26

And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed:

so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can

they pass to us, that would come from thence.

Luke 16:27

Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send

him to my father's house:

Luke 16:28

For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they

also come into this place of torment.

Luke 16:29

Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them

hear them.

Luke 16:30

And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the

dead, they will repent.

Luke 16:31

And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets,

neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.

Luke 17:1

Then said he unto the disciples, It is impossible but that offences

will come: but woe unto him, through whom they come!

Luke 17:2

It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck,

and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these

little ones.

Luke 17:3

Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke

him; and if he repent, forgive him.

Luke 17:4

And if he trespass against thee seven times in a day, and seven times

in a day turn again to thee, saying, I repent; thou shalt forgive him.

Luke 17:5

And the apostles said unto the Lord, Increase our faith.

Luke 17:6

And the Lord said, If ye had faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye

might say unto this sycamine tree, Be thou plucked up by the root,

and be thou planted in the sea; and it should obey you.

Luke 17:7

But which of you, having a servant plowing or feeding cattle, will

say unto him by and by, when he is come from the field, Go and sit

down to meat?

Luke 17:8

And will not rather say unto him, Make ready wherewith I may sup, and

gird thyself, and serve me, till I have eaten and drunken; and

afterward thou shalt eat and drink?

Luke 17:9

Doth he thank that servant because he did the things that were

commanded him? I trow not.

Luke 17:10

So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things which are

commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants: we have done that

which was our duty to do.

Luke 17:11

And it came to pass, as he went to Jerusalem, that he passed through

the midst of Samaria and Galilee.

Luke 17:12

And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that

were lepers, which stood afar off:

Luke 17:13

And they lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy

on us.

Luke 17:14

And when he saw them, he said unto them, Go shew yourselves unto the

priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed.

Luke 17:15

And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and

with a loud voice glorified God,

Luke 17:16

And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was

a Samaritan.

Luke 17:17

And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are

the nine?

Luke 17:18

There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this


Luke 17:19

And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made thee


Luke 17:20

And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God

should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not

with observation:

Luke 17:21

Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the

kingdom of God is within you.

Luke 17:22

And he said unto the disciples, The days will come, when ye shall

desire to see one of the days of the Son of man, and ye shall not see


Luke 17:23

And they shall say to you, See here; or, see there: go not after

them, nor follow them.

Luke 17:24

For as the lightning, that lighteneth out of the one part under

heaven, shineth unto the other part under heaven; so shall also the

Son of man be in his day.

Luke 17:25

But first must he suffer many things, and be rejected of this


Luke 17:26

And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of

the Son of man.

Luke 17:27

They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in

marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood

came, and destroyed them all.

Luke 17:28

Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank,

they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;

Luke 17:29

But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and

brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.

Luke 17:30

Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.

Luke 17:31

In that day, he which shall be upon the housetop, and his stuff in

the house, let him not come down to take it away: and he that is in

the field, let him likewise not return back.

Luke 17:32

Remember Lot's wife.

Luke 17:33

Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever

shall lose his life shall preserve it.

Luke 17:34

I tell you, in that night there shall be two men in one bed; the one

shall be taken, and the other shall be left.

Luke 17:35

Two women shall be grinding together; the one shall be taken, and the

other left.

Luke 17:36

Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other


Luke 17:37

And they answered and said unto him, Where, Lord? And he said unto

them, Wheresoever the body is, thither will the eagles be gathered


Luke 18:1

And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always

to pray, and not to faint;

Luke 18:2

Saying, There was in a city a judge, which feared not God, neither

regarded man:

Luke 18:3

And there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying,

Avenge me of mine adversary.

Luke 18:4

And he would not for a while: but afterward he said within himself,

Though I fear not God, nor regard man;

Luke 18:5

Yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her

continual coming she weary me.

Luke 18:6

And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge saith.

Luke 18:7

And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto

him, though he bear long with them?

Luke 18:8

I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the

Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?

Luke 18:9

And he spake this parable unto certain which trusted in themselves

that they were righteous, and despised others:

Luke 18:10

Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the

other a publican.

Luke 18:11

The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee,

that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or

even as this publican.

Luke 18:12

I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess.

Luke 18:13

And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his

eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful

to me a sinner.

Luke 18:14

I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the

other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he

that humbleth himself shall be exalted.

Luke 18:15

And they brought unto him also infants, that he would touch them: but

when his disciples saw it, they rebuked them.

Luke 18:16

But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Suffer little children to

come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.

Luke 18:17

Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God

as a little child shall in no wise enter therein.

Luke 18:18

And a certain ruler asked him, saying, Good Master, what shall I do

to inherit eternal life?

Luke 18:19

And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? none is good, save

one, that is, God.

Luke 18:20

Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill,

Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Honour thy father and thy


Luke 18:21

And he said, All these have I kept from my youth up.

Luke 18:22

Now when Jesus heard these things, he said unto him, Yet lackest thou

one thing: sell all that thou hast, and distribute unto the poor, and

thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, follow me.

Luke 18:23

And when he heard this, he was very sorrowful: for he was very rich.

Luke 18:24

And when Jesus saw that he was very sorrowful, he said, How hardly

shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God!

Luke 18:25

For it is easier for a camel to go through a needle's eye, than for a

rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

Luke 18:26

And they that heard it said, Who then can be saved?

Luke 18:27

And he said, The things which are impossible with men are possible

with God.

Luke 18:28

Then Peter said, Lo, we have left all, and followed thee.

Luke 18:29

And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that

hath left house, or parents, or brethren, or wife, or children, for

the kingdom of God's sake,

Luke 18:30

Who shall not receive manifold more in this present time, and in the

world to come life everlasting.

Luke 18:31

Then he took unto him the twelve, and said unto them, Behold, we go

up to Jerusalem, and all things that are written by the prophets

concerning the Son of man shall be accomplished.

Luke 18:32

For he shall be delivered unto the Gentiles, and shall be mocked, and

spitefully entreated, and spitted on:

Luke 18:33

And they shall scourge him, and put him to death: and the third day

he shall rise again.

Luke 18:34

And they understood none of these things: and this saying was hid

from them, neither knew they the things which were spoken.

Luke 18:35

And it came to pass, that as he was come nigh unto Jericho, a certain

blind man sat by the way side begging:

Luke 18:36

And hearing the multitude pass by, he asked what it meant.

Luke 18:37

And they told him, that Jesus of Nazareth passeth by.

Luke 18:38

And he cried, saying, Jesus, thou Son of David, have mercy on me.

Luke 18:39

And they which went before rebuked him, that he should hold his

peace: but he cried so much the more, Thou Son of David, have mercy

on me.

Luke 18:40

And Jesus stood, and commanded him to be brought unto him: and when

he was come near, he asked him,

Luke 18:41

Saying, What wilt thou that I shall do unto thee? And he said, Lord,

that I may receive my sight.

Luke 18:42

And Jesus said unto him, Receive thy sight: thy faith hath saved thee.

Luke 18:43

And immediately he received his sight, and followed him, glorifying

God: and all the people, when they saw it, gave praise unto God.

Luke 19:1

And Jesus entered and passed through Jericho.

Luke 19:2

And, behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus, which was the chief

among the publicans, and he was rich.

Luke 19:3

And he sought to see Jesus who he was; and could not for the press,

because he was little of stature.

Luke 19:4

And he ran before, and climbed up into a sycomore tree to see him:

for he was to pass that way.

Luke 19:5

And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up, and saw him, and said

unto him, Zacchaeus, make haste, and come down; for to day I must

abide at thy house.

Luke 19:6

And he made haste, and came down, and received him joyfully.

Luke 19:7

And when they saw it, they all murmured, saying, That he was gone to

be guest with a man that is a sinner.

Luke 19:8

And Zacchaeus stood, and said unto the Lord; Behold, Lord, the half

of my goods I give to the poor; and if I have taken any thing from

any man by false accusation, I restore him fourfold.

Luke 19:9

And Jesus said unto him, This day is salvation come to this house,

forsomuch as he also is a son of Abraham.

Luke 19:10

For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.

Luke 19:11

And as they heard these things, he added and spake a parable, because

he was nigh to Jerusalem, and because they thought that the kingdom

of God should immediately appear.

Luke 19:12

He said therefore, A certain nobleman went into a far country to

receive for himself a kingdom, and to return.

Luke 19:13

And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and

said unto them, Occupy till I come.

Luke 19:14

But his citizens hated him, and sent a message after him, saying, We

will not have this man to reign over us.

Luke 19:15

And it came to pass, that when he was returned, having received the

kingdom, then he commanded these servants to be called unto him, to

whom he had given the money, that he might know how much every man

had gained by trading.

Luke 19:16

Then came the first, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained ten pounds.

Luke 19:17

And he said unto him, Well, thou good servant: because thou hast been

faithful in a very little, have thou authority over ten cities.

Luke 19:18

And the second came, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained five pounds.

Luke 19:19

And he said likewise to him, Be thou also over five cities.

Luke 19:20

And another came, saying, Lord, behold, here is thy pound, which I

have kept laid up in a napkin:

Luke 19:21

For I feared thee, because thou art an austere man: thou takest up

that thou layedst not down, and reapest that thou didst not sow.

Luke 19:22

And he saith unto him, Out of thine own mouth will I judge thee, thou

wicked servant. Thou knewest that I was an austere man, taking up

that I laid not down, and reaping that I did not sow:

Luke 19:23

Wherefore then gavest not thou my money into the bank, that at my

coming I might have required mine own with usury?

Luke 19:24

And he said unto them that stood by, Take from him the pound, and

give it to him that hath ten pounds.

Luke 19:25

(And they said unto him, Lord, he hath ten pounds.)

Luke 19:26

For I say unto you, That unto every one which hath shall be given;

and from him that hath not, even that he hath shall be taken away

from him.

Luke 19:27

But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over

them, bring hither, and slay them before me.

Luke 19:28

And when he had thus spoken, he went before, ascending up to


Luke 19:29

And it came to pass, when he was come nigh to Bethphage and Bethany,

at the mount called the mount of Olives, he sent two of his


Luke 19:30

Saying, Go ye into the village over against you; in the which at your

entering ye shall find a colt tied, whereon yet never man sat: loose

him, and bring him hither.

Luke 19:31

And if any man ask you, Why do ye loose him? thus shall ye say unto

him, Because the Lord hath need of him.

Luke 19:32

And they that were sent went their way, and found even as he had said

unto them.

Luke 19:33

And as they were loosing the colt, the owners thereof said unto them,

Why loose ye the colt?

Luke 19:34

And they said, The Lord hath need of him.

Luke 19:35

And they brought him to Jesus: and they cast their garments upon the

colt, and they set Jesus thereon.

Luke 19:36

And as he went, they spread their clothes in the way.

Luke 19:37

And when he was come nigh, even now at the descent of the mount of

Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and

praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had


Luke 19:38

Saying, Blessed be the King that cometh in the name of the Lord:

peace in heaven, and glory in the highest.

Luke 19:39

And some of the Pharisees from among the multitude said unto him,

Master, rebuke thy disciples.

Luke 19:40

And he answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should

hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out.

Luke 19:41

And when he was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it,

Luke 19:42

Saying, If thou hadst known, even thou, at least in this thy day, the

things which belong unto thy peace! but now they are hid from thine


Luke 19:43

For the days shall come upon thee, that thine enemies shall cast a

trench about thee, and compass thee round, and keep thee in on every


Luke 19:44

And shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within

thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another;

because thou knewest not the time of thy visitation.

Luke 19:45

And he went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold

therein, and them that bought;

Luke 19:46

Saying unto them, It is written, My house is the house of prayer: but

ye have made it a den of thieves.

Luke 19:47

And he taught daily in the temple. But the chief priests and the

scribes and the chief of the people sought to destroy him,

Luke 19:48

And could not find what they might do: for all the people were very

attentive to hear him.

Luke 20:1

And it came to pass, that on one of those days, as he taught the

people in the temple, and preached the gospel, the chief priests and

the scribes came upon him with the elders,

Luke 20:2

And spake unto him, saying, Tell us, by what authority doest thou

these things? or who is he that gave thee this authority?

Luke 20:3

And he answered and said unto them, I will also ask you one thing;

and answer me:

Luke 20:4

The baptism of John, was it from heaven, or of men?

Luke 20:5

And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say, From

heaven; he will say, Why then believed ye him not?

Luke 20:6

But and if we say, Of men; all the people will stone us: for they be

persuaded that John was a prophet.

Luke 20:7

And they answered, that they could not tell whence it was.

Luke 20:8

And Jesus said unto them, Neither tell I you by what authority I do

these things.

Luke 20:9

Then began he to speak to the people this parable; A certain man

planted a vineyard, and let it forth to husbandmen, and went into a

far country for a long time.

Luke 20:10

And at the season he sent a servant to the husbandmen, that they

should give him of the fruit of the vineyard: but the husbandmen beat

him, and sent him away empty.

Luke 20:11

And again he sent another servant: and they beat him also, and

entreated him shamefully, and sent him away empty.

Luke 20:12

And again he sent a third: and they wounded him also, and cast him


Luke 20:13

Then said the lord of the vineyard, What shall I do? I will send my

beloved son: it may be they will reverence him when they see him.

Luke 20:14

But when the husbandmen saw him, they reasoned among themselves,

saying, This is the heir: come, let us kill him, that the inheritance

may be ours.

Luke 20:15

So they cast him out of the vineyard, and killed him. What therefore

shall the lord of the vineyard do unto them?

Luke 20:16

He shall come and destroy these husbandmen, and shall give the

vineyard to others. And when they heard it, they said, God forbid.

Luke 20:17

And he beheld them, and said, What is this then that is written, The

stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the


Luke 20:18

Whosoever shall fall upon that stone shall be broken; but on

whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.

Luke 20:19

And the chief priests and the scribes the same hour sought to lay

hands on him; and they feared the people: for they perceived that he

had spoken this parable against them.

Luke 20:20

And they watched him, and sent forth spies, which should feign

themselves just men, that they might take hold of his words, that so

they might deliver him unto the power and authority of the governor.

Luke 20:21

And they asked him, saying, Master, we know that thou sayest and

teachest rightly, neither acceptest thou the person of any, but

teachest the way of God truly:

Luke 20:22

Is it lawful for us to give tribute unto Caesar, or no?

Luke 20:23

But he perceived their craftiness, and said unto them, Why tempt ye


Luke 20:24

Shew me a penny. Whose image and superscription hath it? They

answered and said, Caesar's.

Luke 20:25

And he said unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which

be Caesar's, and unto God the things which be God's.

Luke 20:26

And they could not take hold of his words before the people: and they

marvelled at his answer, and held their peace.

Luke 20:27

Then came to him certain of the Sadducees, which deny that there is

any resurrection; and they asked him,

Luke 20:28

Saying, Master, Moses wrote unto us, If any man's brother die, having

a wife, and he die without children, that his brother should take his

wife, and raise up seed unto his brother.

Luke 20:29

There were therefore seven brethren: and the first took a wife, and

died without children.

Luke 20:30

And the second took her to wife, and he died childless.

Luke 20:31

And the third took her; and in like manner the seven also: and they

left no children, and died.

Luke 20:32

Last of all the woman died also.

Luke 20:33

Therefore in the resurrection whose wife of them is she? for seven

had her to wife.

Luke 20:34

And Jesus answering said unto them, The children of this world marry,

and are given in marriage:

Luke 20:35

But they which shall be accounted worthy to obtain that world, and

the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in


Luke 20:36

Neither can they die any more: for they are equal unto the angels;

and are the children of God, being the children of the resurrection.

Luke 20:37

Now that the dead are raised, even Moses shewed at the bush, when he

calleth the Lord the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the

God of Jacob.

Luke 20:38

For he is not a God of the dead, but of the living: for all live unto


Luke 20:39

Then certain of the scribes answering said, Master, thou hast well


Luke 20:40

And after that they durst not ask him any question at all.

Luke 20:41

And he said unto them, How say they that Christ is David's son?

Luke 20:42

And David himself saith in the book of Psalms, The LORD said unto my

Lord, Sit thou on my right hand,

Luke 20:43

Till I make thine enemies thy footstool.

Luke 20:44

David therefore calleth him Lord, how is he then his son?

Luke 20:45

Then in the audience of all the people he said unto his disciples,

Luke 20:46

Beware of the scribes, which desire to walk in long robes, and love

greetings in the markets, and the highest seats in the synagogues,

and the chief rooms at feasts;

Luke 20:47

Which devour widows' houses, and for a shew make long prayers: the

same shall receive greater damnation.

Luke 21:1

And he looked up, and saw the rich men casting their gifts into the


Luke 21:2

And he saw also a certain poor widow casting in thither two mites.

Luke 21:3

And he said, Of a truth I say unto you, that this poor widow hath

cast in more than they all:

Luke 21:4

For all these have of their abundance cast in unto the offerings of

God: but she of her penury hath cast in all the living that she had.

Luke 21:5

And as some spake of the temple, how it was adorned with goodly

stones and gifts, he said,

Luke 21:6

As for these things which ye behold, the days will come, in the which

there shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be

thrown down.

Luke 21:7

And they asked him, saying, Master, but when shall these things be?

and what sign will there be when these things shall come to pass?

Luke 21:8

And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come

in my name, saying, I am Christ; and the time draweth near: go ye not

therefore after them.

Luke 21:9

But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified: for

these things must first come to pass; but the end is not by and by.

Luke 21:10

Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom

against kingdom:

Luke 21:11

And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and

pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from


Luke 21:12

But before all these, they shall lay their hands on you, and

persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues, and into prisons,

being brought before kings and rulers for my name's sake.

Luke 21:13

And it shall turn to you for a testimony.

Luke 21:14

Settle it therefore in your hearts, not to meditate before what ye

shall answer:

Luke 21:15

For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries

shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.

Luke 21:16

And ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and

kinsfolks, and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to


Luke 21:17

And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake.

Luke 21:18

But there shall not an hair of your head perish.

Luke 21:19

In your patience possess ye your souls.

Luke 21:20

And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that

the desolation thereof is nigh.

Luke 21:21

Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them

which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in

the countries enter thereinto.

Luke 21:22

For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written

may be fulfilled.

Luke 21:23

But woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck, in

those days! for there shall be great distress in the land, and wrath

upon this people.

Luke 21:24

And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away

captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the

Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.

Luke 21:25

And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the

stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the

sea and the waves roaring;

Luke 21:26

Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those

things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall

be shaken.

Luke 21:27

And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power

and great glory.

Luke 21:28

And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift

up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.

Luke 21:29

And he spake to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all the


Luke 21:30

When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves that

summer is now nigh at hand.

Luke 21:31

So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that

the kingdom of God is nigh at hand.

Luke 21:32

Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all

be fulfilled.

Luke 21:33

Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.

Luke 21:34

And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be

overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life,

and so that day come upon you unawares.

Luke 21:35

For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of

the whole earth.

Luke 21:36

Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy

to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand

before the Son of man.

Luke 21:37

And in the day time he was teaching in the temple; and at night he

went out, and abode in the mount that is called the mount of Olives.

Luke 21:38

And all the people came early in the morning to him in the temple,

for to hear him.
