And it came to pass, in the completing of the days of his being taken up, that he fixed his face to go on to Jerusalem,
and he sent messengers before his face, and having gone on, they went into a village of Samaritans, to make ready for him,
and they did not receive him, because his face was going on to Jerusalem.
And his disciples James and John having seen, said, `Sir, wilt thou [that] we may command fire to come down from the heaven, and to consume them, as also Elijah did?'
and having turned, he rebuked them, and said, `Ye have not known of what spirit ye are;
for the Son of Man did not come to destroy men's lives, but to save;' and they went on to another village.
And it came to pass, as they are going on in the way, a certain one said unto him, `I will follow thee wherever thou mayest go, sir;'
and Jesus said to him, `The foxes have holes, and the fowls of the heaven places of rest, but the Son of Man hath not where he may recline the head.'
And he said unto another, `Be following me;' and he said, `Sir, permit me, having gone away, first to bury my father;'
and Jesus said to him, `Suffer the dead to bury their own dead, and thou, having gone away, publish the reign of God.'
And another also said, `I will follow thee, sir, but first permit me to take leave of those in my house;'
and Jesus said unto him, `No one having put his hand on a plough, and looking back, is fit for the reign of God.'
