The Parable of the Persistent Widow

1 Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up.1 2 He said: "In a certain town there was a judge who neither feared God nor cared about men. 3 And there was a widow in that town who kept coming to him with the plea, 'Grant me justice2 against my adversary.' 4 "For some time he refused. But finally he said to himself, 'Even though I don't fear God or care about men, 5 yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will see that she gets justice, so that she won't eventually wear me out with her coming!' "3 6 And the Lord 4 said, "Listen to what the unjust judge says. 7 And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out5 to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off ? 8 I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly. However, when the Son of Man6 comes,7 will he find faith on the earth?"
