1 When He had completed all His discourse in the hearing of the people, He went to Capernaum. 1 When Jesus had finished saying all this in the hearing of the people, he entered Capernaum.
2 And a centurion's slave, who was highly regarded by him, was sick and about to die. 2 There a centurion's servant, whom his master valued highly, was sick and about to die.
3 When he heard about Jesus, he sent some Jewish elders asking Him to come and save the life of his slave. 3 The centurion heard of Jesus and sent some elders of the Jews to him, asking him to come and heal his servant.
4 When they came to Jesus, they earnestly implored Him, saying, "He is worthy for You to grant this to him; 4 When they came to Jesus, they pleaded earnestly with him, "This man deserves to have you do this,
5 for he loves our nation and it was he who built us our synagogue." 5 because he loves our nation and has built our synagogue."
6 Now Jesus started on His way with them; and when He was not far from the house, the centurion sent friends, saying to Him, "Lord , do not trouble Yourself further, for I am not worthy for You to come under my roof; 6 So Jesus went with them. He was not far from the house when the centurion sent friends to say to him: "Lord, don't trouble yourself, for I do not deserve to have you come under my roof.
7 for this reason I did not even consider myself worthy to come to You, but just say the word, and my servant will be healed. 7 That is why I did not even consider myself worthy to come to you. But say the word, and my servant will be healed.
8 "For I also am a man placed under authority, with soldiers under me; and I say to this one, 'Go!' and he goes, and to another, 'Come!' and he comes, and to my slave, 'Do this!' and he does it." 8 For I myself am a man under authority, with soldiers under me. I tell this one, 'Go,' and he goes; and that one, 'Come,' and he comes. I say to my servant, 'Do this,' and he does it."
9 Now when Jesus heard this, He marveled at him, and turned and said to the crowd that was following Him, "I say to you, not even in Israel have I found such great faith." 9 When Jesus heard this, he was amazed at him, and turning to the crowd following him, he said, "I tell you, I have not found such great faith even in Israel."
10 When those who had been sent returned to the house, they found the slave in good health. 10 Then the men who had been sent returned to the house and found the servant well.
11 Soon afterwards He went to a city called Nain; and His disciples were going along with Him, accompanied by a large crowd. 11 Soon afterward, Jesus went to a town called Nain, and his disciples and a large crowd went along with him.
12 Now as He approached the gate of the city, a dead man was being carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow; and a sizeable crowd from the city was with her. 12 As he approached the town gate, a dead person was being carried out--the only son of his mother, and she was a widow. And a large crowd from the town was with her.
13 When the Lord saw her, He felt compassion for her, and said to her, "Do not weep." 13 When the Lord saw her, his heart went out to her and he said, "Don't cry."
14 And He came up and touched the coffin; and the bearers came to a halt. And He said, "Young man, I say to you, arise!" 14 Then he went up and touched the coffin, and those carrying it stood still. He said, "Young man, I say to you, get up!"
15 The dead man sat up and began to speak. And Jesus gave him back to his mother. 15 The dead man sat up and began to talk, and Jesus gave him back to his mother.
16 Fear gripped them all, and they began glorifying God, saying, "A great prophet has arisen among us!" and, "God has visited His people!" 16 They were all filled with awe and praised God. "A great prophet has appeared among us," they said. "God has come to help his people."
17 This report concerning Him went out all over Judea and in all the surrounding district. 17 This news about Jesus spread throughout Judea and the surrounding country.
18 The disciples of John reported to him about all these things. 18 John's disciples told him about all these things. Calling two of them,
19 Summoning two of his disciples, John sent them to the Lord , saying, "Are You the Expected One, or do we look for someone else?" 19 he sent them to the Lord to ask, "Are you the one who was to come, or should we expect someone else?"
20 When the men came to Him, they said, "John the Baptist has sent us to You, to ask, 'Are You the Expected One, or do we look for someone else?' " 20 When the men came to Jesus, they said, "John the Baptist sent us to you to ask, 'Are you the one who was to come, or should we expect someone else?' "
21 At that very time He cured many people of diseases and afflictions and evil spirits; and He gave sight to many who were blind. 21 At that very time Jesus cured many who had diseases, sicknesses and evil spirits, and gave sight to many who were blind.
22 And He answered and said to them, "Go and report to John what you have seen and heard: the BLIND RECEIVE SIGHT, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, the POOR HAVE THE GOSPEL PREACHED TO THEM. 22 So he replied to the messengers, "Go back and report to John what you have seen and heard: The blind receive sight, the lame walk, those who have leprosy are cured, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good news is preached to the poor.

25 "But what did you go out to see? A man dressed in soft clothing? Those who are splendidly clothed and live in luxury are found in royal palaces! 25 If not, what did you go out to see? A man dressed in fine clothes? No, those who wear expensive clothes and indulge in luxury are in palaces.
26 "But what did you go out to see? A prophet? Yes, I say to you, and one who is more than a prophet. 26 But what did you go out to see? A prophet? Yes, I tell you, and more than a prophet.

29 When all the people and the tax collectors heard this, they acknowledged God's justice, having been baptized with the baptism of John. 29 (All the people, even the tax collectors, when they heard Jesus' words, acknowledged that God's way was right, because they had been baptized by John.
30 But the Pharisees and the lawyers rejected God's purpose for themselves, not having been baptized by John. 30 But the Pharisees and experts in the law rejected God's purpose for themselves, because they had not been baptized by John.)

36 Now one of the Pharisees was requesting Him to dine with him, and He entered the Pharisee's house and reclined at the table. 36 Now one of the Pharisees invited Jesus to have dinner with him, so he went to the Pharisee's house and reclined at the table.
37 And there was a woman in the city who was a sinner; and when she learned that He was reclining at the table in the Pharisee's house, she brought an alabaster vial of perfume, 37 When a woman who had lived a sinful life in that town learned that Jesus was eating at the Pharisee's house, she brought an alabaster jar of perfume,
38 and standing behind Him at His feet, weeping, she began to wet His feet with her tears, and kept wiping them with the hair of her head, and kissing His feet and anointing them with the perfume. 38 and as she stood behind him at his feet weeping, she began to wet his feet with her tears. Then she wiped them with her hair, kissed them and poured perfume on them.
39 Now when the Pharisee who had invited Him saw this, he said to himself, "If this man were a prophet He would know who and what sort of person this woman is who is touching Him, that she is a sinner." 39 When the Pharisee who had invited him saw this, he said to himself, "If this man were a prophet, he would know who is touching him and what kind of woman she is--that she is a sinner."

41 "A moneylender had two debtors: one owed five hundred denarii, and the other fifty. 41 "Two men owed money to a certain moneylender. One owed him five hundred denarii, and the other fifty.
42 "When they were unable to repay, he graciously forgave them both. So which of them will love him more?" 42 Neither of them had the money to pay him back, so he canceled the debts of both. Now which of them will love him more?"
43 Simon answered and said, "I suppose the one whom he forgave more." And He said to him, "You have judged correctly." 43 Simon replied, "I suppose the one who had the bigger debt canceled." "You have judged correctly," Jesus said.
44 Turning toward the woman, He said to Simon, "Do you see this woman? I entered your house; you gave Me no water for My feet, but she has wet My feet with her tears and wiped them with her hair. 44 Then he turned toward the woman and said to Simon, "Do you see this woman?

48 Then He said to her, "Your sins have been forgiven." 48 Then Jesus said to her, "Your sins are forgiven."
