Gospel of Luke

Luke 8:1

And it came to pass afterward, that he went throughout every city and

village, preaching and shewing the glad tidings of the kingdom of

God: and the twelve were with him,

Luke 8:2

And certain women, which had been healed of evil spirits and

infirmities, Mary called Magdalene, out of whom went seven devils,

Luke 8:3

And Joanna the wife of Chuza Herod's steward, and Susanna, and many

others, which ministered unto him of their substance.

Luke 8:4

And when much people were gathered together, and were come to him out

of every city, he spake by a parable:

Luke 8:5

A sower went out to sow his seed: and as he sowed, some fell by the

way side; and it was trodden down, and the fowls of the air devoured


Luke 8:6

And some fell upon a rock; and as soon as it was sprung up, it

withered away, because it lacked moisture.

Luke 8:7

And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprang up with it, and

choked it.

Luke 8:8

And other fell on good ground, and sprang up, and bare fruit an

hundredfold. And when he had said these things, he cried, He that

hath ears to hear, let him hear.

Luke 8:9

And his disciples asked him, saying, What might this parable be?

Luke 8:10

And he said, Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the

kingdom of God: but to others in parables; that seeing they might not

see, and hearing they might not understand.

Luke 8:11

Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God.

Luke 8:12

Those by the way side are they that hear; then cometh the devil, and

taketh away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe

and be saved.

Luke 8:13

They on the rock are they, which, when they hear, receive the word

with joy; and these have no root, which for a while believe, and in

time of temptation fall away.

Luke 8:14

And that which fell among thorns are they, which, when they have

heard, go forth, and are choked with cares and riches and pleasures

of this life, and bring no fruit to perfection.

Luke 8:15

But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good

heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with


Luke 8:16

No man, when he hath lighted a candle, covereth it with a vessel, or

putteth it under a bed; but setteth it on a candlestick, that they

which enter in may see the light.

Luke 8:17

For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither any

thing hid, that shall not be known and come abroad.

Luke 8:18

Take heed therefore how ye hear: for whosoever hath, to him shall be

given; and whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken even that

which he seemeth to have.

Luke 8:19

Then came to him his mother and his brethren, and could not come at

him for the press.

Luke 8:20

And it was told him by certain which said, Thy mother and thy

brethren stand without, desiring to see thee.

Luke 8:21

And he answered and said unto them, My mother and my brethren are

these which hear the word of God, and do it.

Luke 8:22

Now it came to pass on a certain day, that he went into a ship with

his disciples: and he said unto them, Let us go over unto the other

side of the lake. And they launched forth.

Luke 8:23

But as they sailed he fell asleep: and there came down a storm of

wind on the lake; and they were filled with water, and were in


Luke 8:24

And they came to him, and awoke him, saying, Master, master, we

perish. Then he arose, and rebuked the wind and the raging of the

water: and they ceased, and there was a calm.

Luke 8:25

And he said unto them, Where is your faith? And they being afraid

wondered, saying one to another, What manner of man is this! for he

commandeth even the winds and water, and they obey him.

Luke 8:26

And they arrived at the country of the Gadarenes, which is over

against Galilee.

Luke 8:27

And when he went forth to land, there met him out of the city a

certain man, which had devils long time, and ware no clothes, neither

abode in any house, but in the tombs.

Luke 8:28

When he saw Jesus, he cried out, and fell down before him, and with a

loud voice said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God

most high? I beseech thee, torment me not.

Luke 8:29

(For he had commanded the unclean spirit to come out of the man. For

oftentimes it had caught him: and he was kept bound with chains and

in fetters; and he brake the bands, and was driven of the devil into

the wilderness.)

Luke 8:30

And Jesus asked him, saying, What is thy name? And he said, Legion:

because many devils were entered into him.

Luke 8:31

And they besought him that he would not command them to go out into

the deep.

Luke 8:32

And there was there an herd of many swine feeding on the mountain:

and they besought him that he would suffer them to enter into them.

And he suffered them.

Luke 8:33

Then went the devils out of the man, and entered into the swine: and

the herd ran violently down a steep place into the lake, and were


Luke 8:34

When they that fed them saw what was done, they fled, and went and

told it in the city and in the country.

Luke 8:35

Then they went out to see what was done; and came to Jesus, and found

the man, out of whom the devils were departed, sitting at the feet of

Jesus, clothed, and in his right mind: and they were afraid.

Luke 8:36

They also which saw it told them by what means he that was possessed

of the devils was healed.

Luke 8:37

Then the whole multitude of the country of the Gadarenes round about

besought him to depart from them; for they were taken with great

fear: and he went up into the ship, and returned back again.

Luke 8:38

Now the man out of whom the devils were departed besought him that he

might be with him: but Jesus sent him away, saying,

Luke 8:39

Return to thine own house, and shew how great things God hath done

unto thee. And he went his way, and published throughout the whole

city how great things Jesus had done unto him.

Luke 8:40

And it came to pass, that, when Jesus was returned, the people gladly

received him: for they were all waiting for him.

Luke 8:41

And, behold, there came a man named Jairus, and he was a ruler of the

synagogue: and he fell down at Jesus' feet, and besought him that he

would come into his house:

Luke 8:42

For he had one only daughter, about twelve years of age, and she lay

a dying. But as he went the people thronged him.

Luke 8:43

And a woman having an issue of blood twelve years, which had spent

all her living upon physicians, neither could be healed of any,

Luke 8:44

Came behind him, and touched the border of his garment: and

immediately her issue of blood stanched.

Luke 8:45

And Jesus said, Who touched me? When all denied, Peter and they that

were with him said, Master, the multitude throng thee and press thee,

and sayest thou, Who touched me?

Luke 8:46

And Jesus said, Somebody hath touched me: for I perceive that virtue

is gone out of me.

Luke 8:47

And when the woman saw that she was not hid, she came trembling, and

falling down before him, she declared unto him before all the people

for what cause she had touched him and how she was healed immediately.

Luke 8:48

And he said unto her, Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith hath

made thee whole; go in peace.

Luke 8:49

While he yet spake, there cometh one from the ruler of the

synagogue's house, saying to him, Thy daughter is dead; trouble not

the Master.

Luke 8:50

But when Jesus heard it, he answered him, saying, Fear not: believe

only, and she shall be made whole.

Luke 8:51

And when he came into the house, he suffered no man to go in, save

Peter, and James, and John, and the father and the mother of the


Luke 8:52

And all wept, and bewailed her: but he said, Weep not; she is not

dead, but sleepeth.

Luke 8:53

And they laughed him to scorn, knowing that she was dead.

Luke 8:54

And he put them all out, and took her by the hand, and called,

saying, Maid, arise.

Luke 8:55

And her spirit came again, and she arose straightway: and he

commanded to give her meat.

Luke 8:56

And her parents were astonished: but he charged them that they should

tell no man what was done.

Luke 9:1

Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and

authority over all devils, and to cure diseases.

Luke 9:2

And he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick.

Luke 9:3

And he said unto them, Take nothing for your journey, neither staves,

nor scrip, neither bread, neither money; neither have two coats


Luke 9:4

And whatsoever house ye enter into, there abide, and thence depart.

Luke 9:5

And whosoever will not receive you, when ye go out of that city,

shake off the very dust from your feet for a testimony against them.

Luke 9:6

And they departed, and went through the towns, preaching the gospel,

and healing every where.

Luke 9:7

Now Herod the tetrarch heard of all that was done by him: and he was

perplexed, because that it was said of some, that John was risen from

the dead;

Luke 9:8

And of some, that Elias had appeared; and of others, that one of the

old prophets was risen again.

Luke 9:9

And Herod said, John have I beheaded: but who is this, of whom I hear

such things? And he desired to see him.

Luke 9:10

And the apostles, when they were returned, told him all that they had

done. And he took them, and went aside privately into a desert place

belonging to the city called Bethsaida.

Luke 9:11

And the people, when they knew it, followed him: and he received

them, and spake unto them of the kingdom of God, and healed them that

had need of healing.

Luke 9:12

And when the day began to wear away, then came the twelve, and said

unto him, Send the multitude away, that they may go into the towns

and country round about, and lodge, and get victuals: for we are here

in a desert place.

Luke 9:13

But he said unto them, Give ye them to eat. And they said, We have no

more but five loaves and two fishes; except we should go and buy meat

for all this people.

Luke 9:14

For they were about five thousand men. And he said to his disciples,

Make them sit down by fifties in a company.

Luke 9:15

And they did so, and made them all sit down.

Luke 9:16

Then he took the five loaves and the two fishes, and looking up to

heaven, he blessed them, and brake, and gave to the disciples to set

before the multitude.

Luke 9:17

And they did eat, and were all filled: and there was taken up of

fragments that remained to them twelve baskets.

Luke 9:18

And it came to pass, as he was alone praying, his disciples were with

him: and he asked them, saying, Whom say the people that I am?

Luke 9:19

They answering said, John the Baptist; but some say, Elias; and

others say, that one of the old prophets is risen again.

Luke 9:20

He said unto them, But whom say ye that I am? Peter answering said,

The Christ of God.

Luke 9:21

And he straitly charged them, and commanded them to tell no man that


Luke 9:22

Saying, The Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of

the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be slain, and be raised

the third day.

Luke 9:23

And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny

himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.

Luke 9:24

For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will

lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it.

Luke 9:25

For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose

himself, or be cast away?

Luke 9:26

For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall

the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and

in his Father's, and of the holy angels.

Luke 9:27

But I tell you of a truth, there be some standing here, which shall

not taste of death, till they see the kingdom of God.

Luke 9:28

And it came to pass about an eight days after these sayings, he took

Peter and John and James, and went up into a mountain to pray.

Luke 9:29

And as he prayed, the fashion of his countenance was altered, and his

raiment was white and glistering.

Luke 9:30

And, behold, there talked with him two men, which were Moses and


Luke 9:31

Who appeared in glory, and spake of his decease which he should

accomplish at Jerusalem.

Luke 9:32

But Peter and they that were with him were heavy with sleep: and when

they were awake, they saw his glory, and the two men that stood with


Luke 9:33

And it came to pass, as they departed from him, Peter said unto

Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here: and let us make three

tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias: not

knowing what he said.

Luke 9:34

While he thus spake, there came a cloud, and overshadowed them: and

they feared as they entered into the cloud.

Luke 9:35

And there came a voice out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved

Son: hear him.

Luke 9:36

And when the voice was past, Jesus was found alone. And they kept it

close, and told no man in those days any of those things which they

had seen.

Luke 9:37

And it came to pass, that on the next day, when they were come down

from the hill, much people met him.

Luke 9:38

And, behold, a man of the company cried out, saying, Master, I

beseech thee, look upon my son: for he is mine only child.

Luke 9:39

And, lo, a spirit taketh him, and he suddenly crieth out; and it

teareth him that he foameth again, and bruising him hardly departeth

from him.

Luke 9:40

And I besought thy disciples to cast him out; and they could not.

Luke 9:41

And Jesus answering said, O faithless and perverse generation, how

long shall I be with you, and suffer you? Bring thy son hither.

Luke 9:42

And as he was yet a coming, the devil threw him down, and tare him.

And Jesus rebuked the unclean spirit, and healed the child, and

delivered him again to his father.

Luke 9:43

And they were all amazed at the mighty power of God. But while they

wondered every one at all things which Jesus did, he said unto his


Luke 9:44

Let these sayings sink down into your ears: for the Son of man shall

be delivered into the hands of men.

Luke 9:45

But they understood not this saying, and it was hid from them, that

they perceived it not: and they feared to ask him of that saying.

Luke 9:46

Then there arose a reasoning among them, which of them should be


Luke 9:47

And Jesus, perceiving the thought of their heart, took a child, and

set him by him,

Luke 9:48

And said unto them, Whosoever shall receive this child in my name

receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me receiveth him that sent

me: for he that is least among you all, the same shall be great.

Luke 9:49

And John answered and said, Master, we saw one casting out devils in

thy name; and we forbad him, because he followeth not with us.

Luke 9:50

And Jesus said unto him, Forbid him not: for he that is not against

us is for us.

Luke 9:51

And it came to pass, when the time was come that he should be

received up, he stedfastly set his face to go to Jerusalem,

Luke 9:52

And sent messengers before his face: and they went, and entered into

a village of the Samaritans, to make ready for him.

Luke 9:53

And they did not receive him, because his face was as though he would

go to Jerusalem.

Luke 9:54

And when his disciples James and John saw this, they said, Lord, wilt

thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume them,

even as Elias did?

Luke 9:55

But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of

spirit ye are of.

Luke 9:56

For the Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save

them. And they went to another village.

Luke 9:57

And it came to pass, that, as they went in the way, a certain man

said unto him, Lord, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest.

Luke 9:58

And Jesus said unto him, Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have

nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head.

Luke 9:59

And he said unto another, Follow me. But he said, Lord, suffer me

first to go and bury my father.

Luke 9:60

Jesus said unto him, Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and

preach the kingdom of God.

Luke 9:61

And another also said, Lord, I will follow thee; but let me first go

bid them farewell, which are at home at my house.

Luke 9:62

And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough,

and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.

Luke 10:1

After these things the Lord appointed other seventy also, and sent

them two and two before his face into every city and place, whither

he himself would come.

Luke 10:2

Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the

labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he

would send forth labourers into his harvest.

Luke 10:3

Go your ways: behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves.

Luke 10:4

Carry neither purse, nor scrip, nor shoes: and salute no man by the


Luke 10:5

And into whatsoever house ye enter, first say, Peace be to this house.

Luke 10:6

And if the son of peace be there, your peace shall rest upon it: if

not, it shall turn to you again.

Luke 10:7

And in the same house remain, eating and drinking such things as they

give: for the labourer is worthy of his hire. Go not from house to


Luke 10:8

And into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you, eat such

things as are set before you:

Luke 10:9

And heal the sick that are therein, and say unto them, The kingdom of

God is come nigh unto you.

Luke 10:10

But into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you not, go your

ways out into the streets of the same, and say,

Luke 10:11

Even the very dust of your city, which cleaveth on us, we do wipe off

against you: notwithstanding be ye sure of this, that the kingdom of

God is come nigh unto you.

Luke 10:12

But I say unto you, that it shall be more tolerable in that day for

Sodom, than for that city.

Luke 10:13

Woe unto thee, Chorazin! woe unto thee, Bethsaida! for if the mighty

works had been done in Tyre and Sidon, which have been done in you,

they had a great while ago repented, sitting in sackcloth and ashes.

Luke 10:14

But it shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the judgment,

than for you.

Luke 10:15

And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted to heaven, shalt be thrust

down to hell.

Luke 10:16

He that heareth you heareth me; and he that despiseth you despiseth

me; and he that despiseth me despiseth him that sent me.

Luke 10:17

And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the

devils are subject unto us through thy name.

Luke 10:18

And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.

Luke 10:19

Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and

over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt


Luke 10:20

Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject

unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in


Luke 10:21

In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank thee, O

Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things

from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes: even

so, Father; for so it seemed good in thy sight.

Luke 10:22

All things are delivered to me of my Father: and no man knoweth who

the Son is, but the Father; and who the Father is, but the Son, and

he to whom the Son will reveal him.

Luke 10:23

And he turned him unto his disciples, and said privately, Blessed are

the eyes which see the things that ye see:

Luke 10:24

For I tell you, that many prophets and kings have desired to see

those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those

things which ye hear, and have not heard them.

Luke 10:25

And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him, saying,

Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?

Luke 10:26

He said unto him, What is written in the law? how readest thou?

Luke 10:27

And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy

heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all

thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.

Luke 10:28

And he said unto him, Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou

shalt live.

Luke 10:29

But he, willing to justify himself, said unto Jesus, And who is my


Luke 10:30

And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to

Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment,

and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead.

Luke 10:31

And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he

saw him, he passed by on the other side.

Luke 10:32

And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on

him, and passed by on the other side.

Luke 10:33

But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when

he saw him, he had compassion on him,

Luke 10:34

And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine,

and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took

care of him.

Luke 10:35

And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave

them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever

thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee.

Luke 10:36

Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that

fell among the thieves?

Luke 10:37

And he said, He that shewed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him,

Go, and do thou likewise.

Luke 10:38

Now it came to pass, as they went, that he entered into a certain

village: and a certain woman named Martha received him into her house.

Luke 10:39

And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus' feet, and

heard his word.

Luke 10:40

But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and

said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve

alone? bid her therefore that she help me.

Luke 10:41

And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art

careful and troubled about many things:

Luke 10:42

But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which

shall not be taken away from her.

Luke 11:1

And it came to pass, that, as he was praying in a certain place, when

he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him, Lord, teach us to

pray, as John also taught his disciples.

Luke 11:2

And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in

heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as

in heaven, so in earth.

Luke 11:3

Give us day by day our daily bread.

Luke 11:4

And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive every one that is

indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from


Luke 11:5

And he said unto them, Which of you shall have a friend, and shall go

unto him at midnight, and say unto him, Friend, lend me three loaves;

Luke 11:6

For a friend of mine in his journey is come to me, and I have nothing

to set before him?

Luke 11:7

And he from within shall answer and say, Trouble me not: the door is

now shut, and my children are with me in bed; I cannot rise and give


Luke 11:8

I say unto you, Though he will not rise and give him, because he is

his friend, yet because of his importunity he will rise and give him

as many as he needeth.

Luke 11:9

And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye

shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.

Luke 11:10

For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and

to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

Luke 11:11

If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give

him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a


Luke 11:12

Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion?

Luke 11:13

If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your

children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy

Spirit to them that ask him?

Luke 11:14

And he was casting out a devil, and it was dumb. And it came to pass,

when the devil was gone out, the dumb spake; and the people wondered.

Luke 11:15

But some of them said, He casteth out devils through Beelzebub the

chief of the devils.

Luke 11:16

And others, tempting him, sought of him a sign from heaven.

Luke 11:17

But he, knowing their thoughts, said unto them, Every kingdom divided

against itself is brought to desolation; and a house divided against

a house falleth.

Luke 11:18

If Satan also be divided against himself, how shall his kingdom

stand? because ye say that I cast out devils through Beelzebub.

Luke 11:19

And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your sons cast them

out? therefore shall they be your judges.

Luke 11:20

But if I with the finger of God cast out devils, no doubt the kingdom

of God is come upon you.

Luke 11:21

When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace:

Luke 11:22

But when a stronger than he shall come upon him, and overcome him, he

taketh from him all his armour wherein he trusted, and divideth his


Luke 11:23

He that is not with me is against me: and he that gathereth not with

me scattereth.

Luke 11:24

When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry

places, seeking rest; and finding none, he saith, I will return unto

my house whence I came out.

Luke 11:25

And when he cometh, he findeth it swept and garnished.

Luke 11:26

Then goeth he, and taketh to him seven other spirits more wicked than

himself; and they enter in, and dwell there: and the last state of

that man is worse than the first.

Luke 11:27

And it came to pass, as he spake these things, a certain woman of the

company lifted up her voice, and said unto him, Blessed is the womb

that bare thee, and the paps which thou hast sucked.

Luke 11:28

But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God,

and keep it.

Luke 11:29

And when the people were gathered thick together, he began to say,

This is an evil generation: they seek a sign; and there shall no sign

be given it, but the sign of Jonas the prophet.

Luke 11:30

For as Jonas was a sign unto the Ninevites, so shall also the Son of

man be to this generation.

Luke 11:31

The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with the men of

this generation, and condemn them: for she came from the utmost parts

of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater

than Solomon is here.

Luke 11:32

The men of Nineve shall rise up in the judgment with this generation,

and shall condemn it: for they repented at the preaching of Jonas;

and, behold, a greater than Jonas is here.

Luke 11:33

No man, when he hath lighted a candle, putteth it in a secret place,

neither under a bushel, but on a candlestick, that they which come in

may see the light.

Luke 11:34

The light of the body is the eye: therefore when thine eye is single,

thy whole body also is full of light; but when thine eye is evil, thy

body also is full of darkness.

Luke 11:35

Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness.

Luke 11:36

If thy whole body therefore be full of light, having no part dark,

the whole shall be full of light, as when the bright shining of a

candle doth give thee light.

Luke 11:37

And as he spake, a certain Pharisee besought him to dine with him:

and he went in, and sat down to meat.

Luke 11:38

And when the Pharisee saw it, he marvelled that he had not first

washed before dinner.

Luke 11:39

And the Lord said unto him, Now do ye Pharisees make clean the

outside of the cup and the platter; but your inward part is full of

ravening and wickedness.

Luke 11:40

Ye fools, did not he that made that which is without make that which

is within also?

Luke 11:41

But rather give alms of such things as ye have; and, behold, all

things are clean unto you.

Luke 11:42

But woe unto you, Pharisees! for ye tithe mint and rue and all manner

of herbs, and pass over judgment and the love of God: these ought ye

to have done, and not to leave the other undone.

Luke 11:43

Woe unto you, Pharisees! for ye love the uppermost seats in the

synagogues, and greetings in the markets.

Luke 11:44

Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are as graves

which appear not, and the men that walk over them are not aware of


Luke 11:45

Then answered one of the lawyers, and said unto him, Master, thus

saying thou reproachest us also.

Luke 11:46

And he said, Woe unto you also, ye lawyers! for ye lade men with

burdens grievous to be borne, and ye yourselves touch not the burdens

with one of your fingers.

Luke 11:47

Woe unto you! for ye build the sepulchres of the prophets, and your

fathers killed them.

Luke 11:48

Truly ye bear witness that ye allow the deeds of your fathers: for

they indeed killed them, and ye build their sepulchres.

Luke 11:49

Therefore also said the wisdom of God, I will send them prophets and

apostles, and some of them they shall slay and persecute:

Luke 11:50

That the blood of all the prophets, which was shed from the

foundation of the world, may be required of this generation;

Luke 11:51

From the blood of Abel unto the blood of Zacharias, which perished

between the altar and the temple: verily I say unto you, It shall be

required of this generation.

Luke 11:52

Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge:

ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye


Luke 11:53

And as he said these things unto them, the scribes and the Pharisees

began to urge him vehemently, and to provoke him to speak of many


Luke 11:54

Laying wait for him, and seeking to catch something out of his mouth,

that they might accuse him.

Luke 12:1

In the mean time, when there were gathered together an innumerable

multitude of people, insomuch that they trode one upon another, he

began to say unto his disciples first of all, Beware ye of the leaven

of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy.

Luke 12:2

For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither

hid, that shall not be known.

Luke 12:3

Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the

light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear in closets shall be

proclaimed upon the housetops.

Luke 12:4

And I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the

body, and after that have no more that they can do.

Luke 12:5

But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he

hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear


Luke 12:6

Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is

forgotten before God?

Luke 12:7

But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not

therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.

Luke 12:8

Also I say unto you, Whosoever shall confess me before men, him shall

the Son of man also confess before the angels of God:

Luke 12:9

But he that denieth me before men shall be denied before the angels

of God.

Luke 12:10

And whosoever shall speak a word against the Son of man, it shall be

forgiven him: but unto him that blasphemeth against the Holy Ghost it

shall not be forgiven.

Luke 12:11

And when they bring you unto the synagogues, and unto magistrates,

and powers, take ye no thought how or what thing ye shall answer, or

what ye shall say:

Luke 12:12

For the Holy Ghost shall teach you in the same hour what ye ought to


Luke 12:13

And one of the company said unto him, Master, speak to my brother,

that he divide the inheritance with me.

Luke 12:14

And he said unto him, Man, who made me a judge or a divider over you?

Luke 12:15

And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a

man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he


Luke 12:16

And he spake a parable unto them, saying, The ground of a certain

rich man brought forth plentifully:

Luke 12:17

And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I

have no room where to bestow my fruits?

Luke 12:18

And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build

greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods.

Luke 12:19

And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for

many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry.

Luke 12:20

But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be

required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast


Luke 12:21

So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward


Luke 12:22

And he said unto his disciples, Therefore I say unto you, Take no

thought for your life, what ye shall eat; neither for the body, what

ye shall put on.

Luke 12:23

The life is more than meat, and the body is more than raiment.

Luke 12:24

Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither

have storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them: how much more are ye

better than the fowls?

Luke 12:25

And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit?

Luke 12:26

If ye then be not able to do that thing which is least, why take ye

thought for the rest?

Luke 12:27

Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and

yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed

like one of these.

Luke 12:28

If then God so clothe the grass, which is to day in the field, and to

morrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he clothe you, O ye

of little faith?

Luke 12:29

And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be

ye of doubtful mind.

Luke 12:30

For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your

Father knoweth that ye have need of these things.

Luke 12:31

But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be

added unto you.

Luke 12:32

Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give

you the kingdom.

Luke 12:33

Sell that ye have, and give alms; provide yourselves bags which wax

not old, a treasure in the heavens that faileth not, where no thief

approacheth, neither moth corrupteth.

Luke 12:34

For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

Luke 12:35

Let your loins be girded about, and your lights burning;

Luke 12:36

And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he

will return from the wedding; that when he cometh and knocketh, they

may open unto him immediately.

Luke 12:37

Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find

watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make

them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them.

Luke 12:38

And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch,

and find them so, blessed are those servants.

Luke 12:39

And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour

the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered

his house to be broken through.

Luke 12:40

Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when

ye think not.

Luke 12:41

Then Peter said unto him, Lord, speakest thou this parable unto us,

or even to all?

Luke 12:42

And the Lord said, Who then is that faithful and wise steward, whom

his lord shall make ruler over his household, to give them their

portion of meat in due season?

Luke 12:43

Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so


Luke 12:44

Of a truth I say unto you, that he will make him ruler over all that

he hath.

Luke 12:45

But and if that servant say in his heart, My lord delayeth his

coming; and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, and to

eat and drink, and to be drunken;

Luke 12:46

The lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for

him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder,

and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers.

Luke 12:47

And that servant, which knew his lord's will, and prepared not

himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many


Luke 12:48

But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall

be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him

shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him

they will ask the more.

Luke 12:49

I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I if it be already


Luke 12:50

But I have a baptism to be baptized with; and how am I straitened

till it be accomplished!

Luke 12:51

Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay;

but rather division:

Luke 12:52

For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three

against two, and two against three.

Luke 12:53

The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the

father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the

mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the

daughter in law against her mother in law.

Luke 12:54

And he said also to the people, When ye see a cloud rise out of the

west, straightway ye say, There cometh a shower; and so it is.

Luke 12:55

And when ye see the south wind blow, ye say, There will be heat; and

it cometh to pass.

Luke 12:56

Ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky and of the earth;

but how is it that ye do not discern this time?

Luke 12:57

Yea, and why even of yourselves judge ye not what is right?

Luke 12:58

When thou goest with thine adversary to the magistrate, as thou art

in the way, give diligence that thou mayest be delivered from him;

lest he hale thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the

officer, and the officer cast thee into prison.

Luke 12:59

I tell thee, thou shalt not depart thence, till thou hast paid the

very last mite.

Luke 13:1

There were present at that season some that told him of the

Galilaeans, whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices.

Luke 13:2

And Jesus answering said unto them, Suppose ye that these Galilaeans

were sinners above all the Galilaeans, because they suffered such


Luke 13:3

I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.

Luke 13:4

Or those eighteen, upon whom the tower in Siloam fell, and slew them,

think ye that they were sinners above all men that dwelt in Jerusalem?

Luke 13:5

I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.

Luke 13:6

He spake also this parable; A certain man had a fig tree planted in

his vineyard; and he came and sought fruit thereon, and found none.

Luke 13:7

Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these three

years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none: cut it

down; why cumbereth it the ground?

Luke 13:8

And he answering said unto him, Lord, let it alone this year also,

till I shall dig about it, and dung it:

Luke 13:9

And if it bear fruit, well: and if not, then after that thou shalt

cut it down.

Luke 13:10

And he was teaching in one of the synagogues on the sabbath.

Luke 13:11

And, behold, there was a woman which had a spirit of infirmity

eighteen years, and was bowed together, and could in no wise lift up


Luke 13:12

And when Jesus saw her, he called her to him, and said unto her,

Woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity.

Luke 13:13

And he laid his hands on her: and immediately she was made straight,

and glorified God.

Luke 13:14

And the ruler of the synagogue answered with indignation, because

that Jesus had healed on the sabbath day, and said unto the people,

There are six days in which men ought to work: in them therefore come

and be healed, and not on the sabbath day.

Luke 13:15

The Lord then answered him, and said, Thou hypocrite, doth not each

one of you on the sabbath loose his ox or his ass from the stall, and

lead him away to watering?

Luke 13:16

And ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan

hath bound, lo, these eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the

sabbath day?

Luke 13:17

And when he had said these things, all his adversaries were ashamed:

and all the people rejoiced for all the glorious things that were

done by him.

Luke 13:18

Then said he, Unto what is the kingdom of God like? and whereunto

shall I resemble it?

Luke 13:19

It is like a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and cast into

his garden; and it grew, and waxed a great tree; and the fowls of the

air lodged in the branches of it.

Luke 13:20

And again he said, Whereunto shall I liken the kingdom of God?

Luke 13:21

It is like leaven, which a woman took and hid in three measures of

meal, till the whole was leavened.

Luke 13:22

And he went through the cities and villages, teaching, and journeying

toward Jerusalem.

Luke 13:23

Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he

said unto them,

Luke 13:24

Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will

seek to enter in, and shall not be able.

Luke 13:25

When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the

door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door,

saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto

you, I know you not whence ye are:

Luke 13:26

Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy presence,

and thou hast taught in our streets.

Luke 13:27

But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart

from me, all ye workers of iniquity.

Luke 13:28

There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see

Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom

of God, and you yourselves thrust out.

Luke 13:29

And they shall come from the east, and from the west, and from the

north, and from the south, and shall sit down in the kingdom of God.

Luke 13:30

And, behold, there are last which shall be first, and there are first

which shall be last.

Luke 13:31

The same day there came certain of the Pharisees, saying unto him,

Get thee out, and depart hence: for Herod will kill thee.

Luke 13:32

And he said unto them, Go ye, and tell that fox, Behold, I cast out

devils, and I do cures to day and to morrow, and the third day I

shall be perfected.

Luke 13:33

Nevertheless I must walk to day, and to morrow, and the day

following: for it cannot be that a prophet perish out of Jerusalem.

Luke 13:34

O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, which killest the prophets, and stonest them

that are sent unto thee; how often would I have gathered thy children

together, as a hen doth gather her brood under her wings, and ye

would not!

Luke 13:35

Behold, your house is left unto you desolate: and verily I say unto

you, Ye shall not see me, until the time come when ye shall say,

Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.
