Luke 7:1-7 NCV

1 When Jesus finished saying all these things to the people, he went to Capernaum.
2 There was an army officer who had a servant who was very important to him. The servant was so sick he was nearly dead.
3 When the officer heard about Jesus, he sent some older Jewish leaders to him to ask Jesus to come and heal his servant.
4 The men went to Jesus and begged him, saying, "This officer is worthy of your help.
5 He loves our people, and he built us a synagogue."
6 So Jesus went with the men. He was getting near the officer's house when the officer sent friends to say, "Lord, don't trouble yourself, because I am not worthy to have you come into my house.
7 That is why I did not come to you myself. But you only need to command it, and my servant will be healed.
