Parables on Prayer

1 Now He was telling them a parable to show that at all times they 1ought to pray and not to 2lose heart, 2 saying, "In a certain city there was a judge who did not fear God and did not 3respect man. 3 "There was a widow in that city, and she kept coming to him, saying, 'aGive me legal protection from my opponent.' 4 "For a while he was unwilling ; but afterward he said to himself, 'Even though I do not fear God nor 4respect man, 5 yet 5because this widow bothers me, I will bgive her legal protection, otherwise by continually coming she will c6wear me out.' " 6 And 7the Lord said, "Hear what the unrighteous judge said ; 7 now, will not God 8bring about justice for His 9elect who cry to Him day and night, dand will He 10delay long over them? 8 "I tell you that He will bring about justice for them quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, 11will He find efaith on the earth ?"

The Pharisee and the Publican

9 And He also told this parable to some people who 12trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and 13viewed others with contempt : 10 "Two men 14went up into the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector.
