And when he had completed all his words in the hearing of the people, he entered into Capernaum.
And a certain centurion's bondman who was dear to him was ill and about to die;
and having heard of Jesus, he sent to him elders of the Jews, begging him that he might come and save his bondman.
But they, being come to Jesus, besought him diligently, saying, He is worthy to whom thou shouldest grant this,
for he loves our nation, and himself has built the synagogue for us.
And Jesus went with them. But already, when he was not far from the house, the centurion sent to him friends, saying to him, Lord, do not trouble thyself, for I am not worthy that thou shouldest enter under my roof.
