13 "Woe to you, Korazin! Woe to you, Beit-Tzaidah! For if the miracles done in you had been done in Tzor and Tzidon, they would long ago have put on sackcloth and ashes as evidence that they had changed their ways. 13 "Woe to you, Korazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the miracles that were performed in you had been performed in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago, sitting in sackcloth and ashes.

21 At that moment he was filled with joy by the Ruach HaKodesh and said, "Father, Lord of heaven and earth, I thank you because you concealed these things from the sophisticated and educated, yet revealed them to ordinary people. Yes, Father, I thank you that it pleased you to do this. 21 At that time Jesus, full of joy through the Holy Spirit, said, "I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children. Yes, Father, for this was your good pleasure.

25 An expert in Torah stood up to try and trap him by asking, "Rabbi, what should I do to obtain eternal life?" 25 On one occasion an expert in the law stood up to test Jesus. "Teacher," he asked, "what must I do to inherit eternal life?"
26 But Yeshua said to him, "What is written in the Torah? How do you read it?" 26 "What is written in the Law?" he replied. "How do you read it?"
27 He answered, "You are to love ADONAI your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength and with all your understanding; and your neighbor as yourself." 27 He answered: " 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind'; and, 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' "
28 "That's the right answer," Yeshua said. "Do this, and you will have life." 28 "You have answered correctly," Jesus replied. "Do this and you will live."
29 But he, wanting to justify himself, said to Yeshua, "And who is my `neighbor'?" 29 But he wanted to justify himself, so he asked Jesus, "And who is my neighbor?"
30 Taking up the question, Yeshua said: "A man was going down from Yerushalayim to Yericho when he was attacked by robbers. They stripped him naked and beat him up, then went off, leaving him half dead. 30 In reply Jesus said: "A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he fell into the hands of robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead.
31 By coincidence, a cohen was going down on that road; but when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. 31 A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side.
32 Likewise a Levi who reached the place and saw him also passed by on the other side. 32 So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side.
33 "But a man from Shomron who was traveling came upon him; and when he saw him, he was moved with compassion. 33 But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him.
34 So he went up to him, put oil and wine on his wounds and bandaged them. Then he set him on his own donkey, brought him to an inn and took care of him. 34 He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, took him to an inn and took care of him.
35 The next day, he took out two days' wages, gave them to the innkeeper and said, `Look after him; and if you spend more than this, I'll pay you back when I return.' 35 The next day he took out two silver coins and gave them to the innkeeper. 'Look after him,' he said, 'and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.'
36 Of these three, which one seems to you to have become the `neighbor' of the man who fell among robbers?" 36 "Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?"
37 He answered, "The one who showed mercy toward him." Yeshua said to him, "You go and do as he did." 37 The expert in the law replied, "The one who had mercy on him." Jesus told him, "Go and do likewise."
38 On their way Yeshua and his talmidim came to a village where a woman named Marta welcomed him into her home. 38 As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him.
39 She had a sister called Miryam who also sat at the Lord's feet and heard what he had to say. 39 She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord's feet listening to what he said.
40 But Marta was busy with all the work to be done; so, going up to him, she said, "Sir, don't you care that my sister has been leaving me to do all the work by myself?" 40 But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, "Lord, don't you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself ? Tell her to help me!"
41 However, the Lord answered her, "Marta, Marta, you are fretting and worrying about so many things! 41 "Martha, Martha," the Lord answered, "you are worried and upset about many things,
42 But there is only one thing that is essential. Miryam has chosen the right thing, and it won't be taken away from her." 42 but only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her."
