1And he spake a parable unto themto this end, that men oughtalways to pray , andnot to faint ;
2Saying , There wasinacityaajudge, which fearednotGod,neitherregardedman:3And there was a widowinthatcity;and she cameuntohim,saying , Avengemeofmineadversary.4And he wouldnotfor a while:butafterwardhesaidwithinhimself,Though I fearnotGod,norregardman;5Yetbecausethiswidowtroublethme, I will avengeher,lestby her continualcoming she wearyme.6And the Lordsaid , Hearwhat the unjustjudgesaith .7AndshallnotGodavenge his ownelect,whichcrydayandnightuntohim,though he bear longwiththem?8I tellyouthat he willavengethemspeedily . Neverthelesswhen the Son of mancometh , shall he findfaithon the earth?9And he spakethisparableuntocertainwhichtrustedinthemselvesthatb they wererighteous,anddespisedothers:10Twomen went upinto the temple to pray ; the one a Pharisee,and the other a publican.11The Phariseestood and prayedthuswithhimself,God, I thankthee,that I amnotasothermen are, extortioners,unjust,adulterers,orevenasthispublican.12I fasttwice in the week, I give tithes of allthat I possess .13And the publican,standing afar off,wouldnot lift up so much as his eyesuntoheaven,butsmoteuponhisbreast,saying , God be merciful to me a sinner.14I tellyou, this man went downtohishousejustified rather than the other:for every one that exaltethhimself shall be abased ; and he that humblethhimself shall be exalted .15And they brought unto himalsoinfants,that he would touchthem:but when his disciplessaw it, they rebukedthem.16ButJesuscalledthem unto him, and said , Suffer little children to comeuntome,andforbidthemnot:for of suchis the kingdom of God.17Verily I say unto you,Whosoevershallnotreceive the kingdom of Godas a little childshall in no wiseentertherein .18And a certainruleraskedhim,saying , GoodMaster,what shall I do to inheriteternallife?19AndJesussaid unto him,Why callest thoumegood?none is good,saveone, that is, God.20Thou knowest the commandments,Donot commit adultery , Donotkill , Donotsteal , Donot bear false witness , Honourthyfatherandthymother.21And he said , Allthese have I keptfrommyyouth up.
22Now when Jesusheard these things, he said unto him,Yetlackestthouone thing: sellallthat thou hast , anddistribute unto the poor,and thou shalt havetreasureinheaven:andcome , followme.23And when he heardthis, he was very sorrowful:for he wasveryrich.24And when Jesussaw that hewas very sorrowful, he said , Howhardly shall they that haverichesenterinto the kingdom of God!25For it iseasier for a camel to gothrough a needle'seye,than for a rich man to enterinto the kingdom of God.26And they that heard it said , Whothen can besaved ?
27And he said , The things which are impossiblewithmenarepossiblewithGod.28ThenPetersaid , Lo , we have leftall,andfollowedthee.29And he said unto them,Verily I say unto you , There is no manthat hath lefthouse,orparents,orbrethren,orwife,orchildren,for the kingdom of God'ssake,30Whoshallnotreceive manifold moreinthis present time,andin the world to comelifeeverlasting.31Then he took unto him the twelve, and saiduntothem,Behold , we go uptoJerusalem,and all things that are writtenby the prophets concerning the Son of man shall be accomplished .32For he shall be delivered unto the Gentiles,and shall be mocked , and spitefully entreated , and spitted on :33And they shall scourge him, and puthim to death : and the thirdday he shall rise again .34Andtheyunderstoodnone of these things:andthissayingwashidfromthem , neither knew they the things which were spoken .
35And it came to pass , that ashe was come nighuntoJericho, a certain blind mansatby the way sidebegging :
36Andhearing the multitude pass by , he askedwhatitmeant .
37And they toldhim,thatJesus of Nazareth passeth by .
38And he cried , saying , Jesus, thou Son of David, have mercy on me.39And they which went beforerebukedhim,that he should hold his peace : buthecried so much the more, Thou Son of David, have mercy on me.40AndJesusstood , and commandedhim to be broughtuntohim:and when he was come near , he askedhim,41Saying , What wilt thou that I shall do unto thee?And he said , Lord,that I may receive my sight .
42AndJesussaid unto him,Receive thy sight : thyfaith hath savedthee.43Andimmediately he received his sight , andfollowedhim,glorifyingGod:andall the people, when they saw it, gavepraise unto God.
