1 Now there were some present at that very season who told him of the Galilaeans, whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices. 1 Now there were some present at that time who told Jesus about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mixed with their sacrifices.
2 And he answered and said unto them, Think ye that these Galilaeans were sinners above all the Galilaeans, because they have suffered these things? 2 Jesus answered, "Do you think that these Galileans were worse sinners than all the other Galileans because they suffered this way?

5 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. 5 I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish."
6 And he spake this parable; A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came seeking fruit thereon, and found none. 6 Then he told this parable: "A man had a fig tree, planted in his vineyard, and he went to look for fruit on it, but did not find any.
7 And he said unto the vinedresser, Behold, these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none: cut it down; why doth it also cumber the ground? 7 So he said to the man who took care of the vineyard, 'For three years now I've been coming to look for fruit on this fig tree and haven't found any. Cut it down! Why should it use up the soil?'
8 And he answering saith unto him, Lord, let it alone this year also, till I shall dig about it, and dung it: 8 " 'Sir,' the man replied, 'leave it alone for one more year, and I'll dig around it and fertilize it.
9 and if it bear fruit thenceforth, [well]; but if not, thou shalt cut it down. 9 If it bears fruit next year, fine! If not, then cut it down.' "
10 And he was teaching in one of the synagogues on the sabbath day. 10 On a Sabbath Jesus was teaching in one of the synagogues,
11 And behold, a woman that had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years; and she was bowed together, and could in no wise lift herself up. 11 and a woman was there who had been crippled by a spirit for eighteen years. She was bent over and could not straighten up at all.
12 And when Jesus saw her, he called her, and said to her, Woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity. 12 When Jesus saw her, he called her forward and said to her, "Woman, you are set free from your infirmity."
13 And he laid his hands upon her: and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God. 13 Then he put his hands on her, and immediately she straightened up and praised God.
14 And the ruler of the synagogue, being moved with indignation because Jesus had healed on the sabbath, answered and said to the multitude, There are six days in which men ought to work: in them therefore come and be healed, and not on the day of the sabbath. 14 Indignant because Jesus had healed on the Sabbath, the synagogue ruler said to the people, "There are six days for work. So come and be healed on those days, not on the Sabbath."
15 But the Lord answered him, and said, Ye hypocrites, doth not each one of you on the sabbath loose his ox or his ass from the stall, and lead him away to watering? 15 The Lord answered him, "You hypocrites! Doesn't each of you on the Sabbath untie his ox or donkey from the stall and lead it out to give it water?
16 And ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan had bound, lo, [these] eighteen years, to have been loosed from this bond on the day of the sabbath? 16 Then should not this woman, a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan has kept bound for eighteen long years, be set free on the Sabbath day from what bound her?"
17 And as he said these things, all his adversaries were put to shame: and all the multitude rejoiced for all the glorious things that were done by him. 17 When he said this, all his opponents were humiliated, but the people were delighted with all the wonderful things he was doing.
18 He said therefore, Unto what is the kingdom of God like? and whereunto shall I liken it? 18 Then Jesus asked, "What is the kingdom of God like? What shall I compare it to?

It grew and became a tree, and the birds of the air perched in its branches."
20 And again he said, Whereunto shall I liken the kingdom of God? 20 Again he asked, "What shall I compare the kingdom of God to?
21 It is like unto leaven, which a woman took and hid in three measures of meal, till it was all leavened. 21 It is like yeast that a woman took and mixed into a large amount of flour until it worked all through the dough."
22 And he went on his way through cities and villages, teaching, and journeying on unto Jerusalem. 22 Then Jesus went through the towns and villages, teaching as he made his way to Jerusalem.
