1 Then Yeshua told his talmidim a parable, in order to impress on them that they must always keep praying and not lose heart.
2 "In a certain town, there was a judge who neither feared God nor respected other people.
3 There was also in that town a widow who kept coming to him and saying, `Give me a judgment against the man who is trying to ruin me.'
4 For a long time he refused; but after awhile, he said to himself, `I don't fear God, and I don't respect other people;
5 but because this widow is such a nudnik, I will see to it that she gets justice -- otherwise, she'll keep coming and pestering me till she wears me out!'"
6 Then the Lord commented, "Notice what this corrupt judge says.
7 Now won't God grant justice to his chosen people who cry out to him day and night? Is he delaying long over them?
8 I tell you that he will judge in their favor, and quickly! But when the Son of Man comes, will he find this trust on the earth at all?"
