Luke 18:1-8 (Good News Translation)

View In My Bible
1 Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to teach them that they should always pray and never become discouraged. 2 "In a certain town there was a judge who neither feared God nor respected people. 3 And there was a widow in that same town who kept coming to him and pleading for her rights, saying, "Help me against my opponent!' 4 For a long time the judge refused to act, but at last he said to himself, "Even though I don't fear God or respect people, 5 yet because of all the trouble this widow is giving me, I will see to it that she gets her rights. If I don't, she will keep on coming and finally wear me out!' " 6 And the Lord continued, "Listen to what that corrupt judge said. 7 Now, will God not judge in favor of his own people who cry to him day and night for help? Will he be slow to help them? 1 8 I tell you, he will judge in their favor and do it quickly. But will the Son of Man find faith on earth when he comes?"
