Matthew 11:17-27 (English Standard Version)

View In My Bible
17 "'We played the flute for you, and you did not dance; we sang a dirge, and you did not mourn.' 18 For John came 1neither eating 2nor drinking, and they say, 'He has a demon.' 19 The Son of Man came 3eating and drinking, and they say, 'Look at him! A glutton and a drunkard, 4a friend of 5tax collectors and sinners!' Yet wisdom is justified by her deeds."a

Woe to Unrepentant Cities

20 6Then he began to denounce the cities where most of his mighty works had been done, because they did not repent. 21 7"Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the mighty works done in you had been done in 8Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes. 22 9But I tell you, it will be more bearable on 10the day of judgment for 11Tyre and Sidon than for you. 23 And you, 12Capernaum, will you be exalted to heaven? You will be brought down to 13Hades. For if the mighty works done in you had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day. 24 14But I tell you that 15it will be more tolerable on 16the day of judgment for the land of Sodom than for you."

Come to Me, and I Will Give You Rest

25 17At that time Jesus declared, "I thank you, Father, 18Lord of heaven and earth, that 19you have hidden these things from the wise and understanding and 20revealed them to little children; 26 yes, Father, for such was your 21gracious will.b 27 22All things have been handed over to me by my Father, and no one knows the Son 23except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and anyone 24to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.
