Luke 7:1-6 NLT

1 When Jesus had finished saying all this, he went back to Capernaum.
2 Now the highly valued slave of a Roman officer was sick and near death.
3 When the officer heard about Jesus, he sent some respected Jewish leaders to ask him to come and heal his slave.
4 So they earnestly begged Jesus to come with them and help the man. "If anyone deserves your help, it is he," they said,
5 "for he loves the Jews and even built a synagogue for us."
6 So Jesus went with them. But just before they arrived at the house, the officer sent some friends to say, "Lord, don't trouble yourself by coming to my home, for I am not worthy of such an honor.
