Wycliffe (WYC) New International Version (NIV)
1 And some men were present in that time, that told to him of the Galilaeans, whose blood Pilate mingled with the sacrifices of them. 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 to them, Ween ye, that these men of Galilee were sinners more than all Galilaeans, for they suffered such things? [And he answering said to them, Ween ye, that these men of Galilee were sinners before all Galilaeans, for they suffered such things?] 2 Jesus answered, "Do you think that these Galileans were worse sinners than all the other Galileans because they suffered this way?
3 I say to you, nay; all ye shall perish in like manner, but [if] ye have penance. 3 I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish.
4 And as those eighteen, on which the tower in Siloam fell down [upon whom the tower in Siloam felled down], and slew them, guess ye, that they were debtors more than all men that dwell in Jerusalem? 4 Or those eighteen who died when the tower in Siloam fell on them--do you think they were more guilty than all the others living in Jerusalem?
5 I say to you, nay; but also all ye shall perish [but also ye all shall perish], if ye do not penance. 5 I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish."
6 And he said this likeness, A man [Some man] had a fig tree planted in his vineyard, and he came seeking fruit in it, 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 to the tiller of the vineyard, Lo! three years be, since I come seeking fruit in this fig tree, and I find none; therefore cut it down, whereto occupieth it the earth? 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 said to him, Lord, suffer it also this year, [till] the while I delve about it, and I shall dung it [till the while I delve 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 shall make fruit, [else] if not, in time [to] coming 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 their synagogue in the sabbaths. [Forsooth he was teaching in the synagogue of them in sabbaths.] 10 On a Sabbath Jesus was teaching in one of the synagogues,
11 And lo! a woman, that had a spirit of sickness eighteen years, and was crooked [and was bowed down], and neither in any manner might look upward. 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 Whom when Jesus had seen, he called [her] to him, and said to her, Woman, thou art delivered of thy sickness [Woman, thou art let go of thy sickness]. 12 When Jesus saw her, he called her forward and said to her, "Woman, you are set free from your infirmity."
13 And he set on her his hands, and at once she stood upright [And he put to her the hands, and anon she was raised], and glorified God. 13 Then he put his hands on her, and immediately she straightened up and praised God.
14 And the prince of the synagogue answered, having disdain for Jesus had healed in the sabbath; and he said to the people, There be six days, in which it behooveth to work; therefore come ye in these [therefore come in these], and be ye healed, and not in the day of 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 to him, and said, Hypocrite, whether each of you untieth not in the sabbath his ox, or ass, from the feed-trough, and leadeth to water? [+Forsooth the Lord answering to him said, Hypocrite, whether each of you in the sabbath untieth not his ox, or his ass, from the cratch, or stall, and leadeth to water?] 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 Behooved it not this daughter of Abraham, whom Satan hath bound, lo! eighteen years, to be unbound of this bond in the day of 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 when he said these things, all his adversaries were ashamed, and all the people joyed in all things, that were gloriously done of 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 Therefore he said, To what thing is the kingdom of God like? and to what thing shall I guess it to be like? 18 Then Jesus asked, "What is the kingdom of God like? What shall I compare it to?
19 It is like to a corn of mustard seed, which a man took, and cast into his garden [cast into his yard]; and it waxed, and was made into a great tree, and fowls of the air rested in the branches thereof. 19 It is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his garden. It grew and became a tree, and the birds of the air perched in its branches."
20 And again he said, To what thing shall I guess the kingdom of God like? 20 Again he asked, "What shall I compare the kingdom of God to?
21 It is like to sourdough, that a woman took, and hid it in three measures of meal, till all were soured. [+It is like to sourdough, which taken, a woman hid in three measures of meal, till it were all soured.] 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 by cities and castles, teaching and making journey into Jerusalem. 22 Then Jesus went through the towns and villages, teaching as he made his way to Jerusalem.
23 And a man said to him, Lord, if there be few, that be saved? And he said to them, 23 Someone asked him, "Lord, are only a few people going to be saved?" He said to them,
24 Strive ye to enter by the strait gate; for I say to you, many seek to enter [in], and they shall not be able. 24 "Make every effort to enter through the narrow door, because many, I tell you, will try to enter and will not be able to.
25 For when the husbandman is entered, and the door is closed [Forsooth when the husbandman hath entered and closed the door], ye shall begin to stand withoutforth, and knock at the door, and say [saying], Lord, open to us. And he shall answer, and say to you, I know you not, of whence ye be. 25 Once the owner of the house gets up and closes the door, you will stand outside knocking and pleading, 'Sir, open the door for us.' "But he will answer, 'I don't know you or where you come from.'
26 Then ye shall begin to say, We have eaten before thee and drunk [We have eaten and drunk before thee], and in our streets thou hast taught. 26 "Then you will say, 'We ate and drank with you, and you taught in our streets.'
27 And he shall say to you, I know you not, of whence ye be; go away from me, all ye workers of wickedness. 27 "But he will reply, 'I don't know you or where you come from. Away from me, all you evildoers!'
28 There shall be weeping and grinding of teeth [There shall be weeping and beating together of teeth], when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets in the kingdom of God; and you to be put out. 28 "There will be weeping there, and gnashing of teeth, when you see Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of God, but you yourselves thrown out.
29 And they shall come from the east and the west, and from the north and the south, and shall sit at the meat in the realm of God. 29 People will come from east and west and north and south, and will take their places at the feast in the kingdom of God.
30 And lo! they that were the first, be the last; and they that were the last, be the first. [And lo! they that were first, be the last; and they that were last, be the first.] 30 Indeed there are those who are last who will be first, and first who will be last."
31 In that day some of the Pharisees came nigh, and said to him, Go out, and go from hence [In that day some of the Pharisees came nigh, saying to him, Go out, and go hence], for Herod will slay thee. 31 At that time some Pharisees came to Jesus and said to him, "Leave this place and go somewhere else. Herod wants to kill you."
32 And he said to them, Go ye, and say to that fox, Lo! I cast out fiends, and I make perfectly healings [and I make perfectly healths], to day and to morrow, and the third day I am ended. 32 He replied, "Go tell that fox, 'I will drive out demons and heal people today and tomorrow, and on the third day I will reach my goal.'
33 Nevertheless it behooveth me to day, and to morrow, and the day that followeth [and the day following], to walk; for it falleth not [for] a prophet to perish out of Jerusalem. 33 In any case, I must keep going today and tomorrow and the next day--for surely no prophet can die outside Jerusalem!
34 Jerusalem, Jerusalem, that slayest prophets, and stonest them that be sent to thee, how oft would I gather together thy sons, as a bird gathereth his nest under feathers [as a bird his nest under pens, or wings], and thou wouldest not. 34 "O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing!
35 Lo! your house shall be left to you desert. And I say to you [Soothly I say to you], that ye shall not see me, till it come, when ye shall say, Blessed is he, that cometh in the name of the Lord. 35 Look, your house is left to you desolate. I tell you, you will not see me again until you say, 'Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.' "
