Holman Christian Standard (CSB) New International Version (NIV)
1 He was praying in a certain place, and when He finished, one of His disciples said to Him, "Lord, teach us to pray, just as John also taught his disciples." 1 One day Jesus was praying in a certain place. When he finished, one of his disciples said to him, "Lord, teach us to pray, just as John taught his disciples."
2 He said to them, "Whenever you pray, say: Father, Your name be honored as holy. Your kingdom come. 2 He said to them, "When you pray, say: " 'Father, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come.
3 Give us each day our daily bread. 3 Give us each day our daily bread.
4 And forgive us our sins, for we ourselves also forgive everyone in debt to us. And do not bring us into temptation." 4 Forgive us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who sins against us. And lead us not into temptation. ' "
5 He also said to them: "Suppose one of you has a friend and goes to him at midnight and says to him, 'Friend, lend me three loaves of bread, 5 Then he said to them, "Suppose one of you has a friend, and he goes to him at midnight and says, 'Friend, lend me three loaves of bread,
6 because a friend of mine on a journey has come to me, and I don't have anything to offer him.' 6 because a friend of mine on a journey has come to me, and I have nothing to set before him.'
7 Then he will answer from inside and say, 'Don't bother me! The door is already locked, and my children and I have gone to bed. I can't get up to give you anything.' 7 "Then the one inside answers, 'Don't bother me. The door is already locked, and my children are with me in bed. I can't get up and give you anything.'
8 I tell you, even though he won't get up and give him anything because he is his friend, yet because of his persistence, he will get up and give him as much as he needs. 8 I tell you, though he will not get up and give him the bread because he is his friend, yet because of the man's boldness he will get up and give him as much as he needs.
9 "So I say to you, keep asking, and it will be given to you. Keep searching, and you will find. Keep knocking, and the door will be opened to you. 9 "So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.
10 For everyone who asks receives, and the one who searches finds, and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened. 10 For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.
11 What father among you, if his son asks for a fish, will give him a snake instead of a fish? 11 "Which of you fathers, if your son asks for a fish, will give him a snake instead?
12 Or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? 12 Or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion?
13 If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him?" 13 If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!"
14 Now He was driving out a demon that was mute. When the demon came out, the man who had been mute, spoke, and the crowds were amazed. 14 Jesus was driving out a demon that was mute. When the demon left, the man who had been mute spoke, and the crowd was amazed.
15 But some of them said, "He drives out demons by Beelzebul, the ruler of the demons!" 15 But some of them said, "By Beelzebub, the prince of demons, he is driving out demons."
16 And others, as a test, were demanding of Him a sign from heaven. 16 Others tested him by asking for a sign from heaven.
17 Knowing their thoughts, He told them: "Every kingdom divided against itself is headed for destruction, and a house divided against itself falls. 17 Jesus knew their thoughts and said to them: "Any kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and a house divided against itself will fall.
18 If Satan also is divided against himself, how will his kingdom stand? For you say I drive out demons by Beelzebul. 18 If Satan is divided against himself, how can his kingdom stand? I say this because you claim that I drive out demons by Beelzebub.
19 And if I drive out demons by Beelzebul, who is it your sons drive them out by? For this reason they will be your judges. 19 Now if I drive out demons by Beelzebub, by whom do your followers drive them out? So then, they will be your judges.
20 If I drive out demons by the finger of God, then the kingdom of God has come to you. 20 But if I drive out demons by the finger of God, then the kingdom of God has come to you.
21 When a strong man, fully armed, guards his estate, his possessions are secure. 21 "When a strong man, fully armed, guards his own house, his possessions are safe.
22 But when one stronger than he attacks and overpowers him, he takes from him all his weapons , the armor and weapons of a foot soldier; Eph 6:11 , 13 he trusted in, and divides up his plunder. 22 But when someone stronger attacks and overpowers him, he takes away the armor in which the man trusted and divides up the spoils.
23 Anyone who is not with Me is against Me, and anyone who does not gather with Me scatters. 23 "He who is not with me is against me, and he who does not gather with me, scatters.
24 "When an unclean spirit comes out of a man, it roams through waterless places looking for rest, and not finding rest, it then says, 'I'll go back to my house where I came from.' 24 "When an evil spirit comes out of a man, it goes through arid places seeking rest and does not find it. Then it says, 'I will return to the house I left.'
25 And returning, it finds [the house] swept and put in order. 25 When it arrives, it finds the house swept clean and put in order.
26 Then it goes and brings seven other spirits more evil than itself, and they enter and settle down there. As a result, that man's last condition is worse than the first." 26 Then it goes and takes seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there. And the final condition of that man is worse than the first."
27 As He was saying these things, a woman from the crowd raised her voice and said to Him, "The womb that bore You and the one who nursed You are blessed!" 27 As Jesus was saying these things, a woman in the crowd called out, "Blessed is the mother who gave you birth and nursed you."
28 He said, "Even more, those who hear the word of God and keep it are blessed!" 28 He replied, "Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it."
29 As the crowds were increasing, He began saying: "This generation is an evil generation. It demands a sign, but no sign will be given to it except the sign of Jonah. 29 As the crowds increased, Jesus said, "This is a wicked generation. It asks for a miraculous sign, but none will be given it except the sign of Jonah.
30 For just as Jonah became a sign to the people of Nineveh, so also the Son of Man will be to this generation. 30 For as Jonah was a sign to the Ninevites, so also will the Son of Man be to this generation.
31 The queen of the south will rise up at the judgment with the men of this generation and condemn them, because she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon, and look-something greater than Solomon is here! 31 The Queen of the South will rise at the judgment with the men of this generation and condemn them; for she came from the ends of the earth to listen to Solomon's wisdom, and now one greater than Solomon is here.
32 The men of Nineveh will rise up at the judgment with this generation and condemn it, because they repented at Jonah's proclamation, and look-something greater than Jonah is here! 32 The men of Nineveh will stand up at the judgment with this generation and condemn it; for they repented at the preaching of Jonah, and now one greater than Jonah is here.
33 "No one lights a lamp and puts it in the cellar or under a basket, but on a lampstand, so that those who come in may see its light. 33 "No one lights a lamp and puts it in a place where it will be hidden, or under a bowl. Instead he puts it on its stand, so that those who come in may see the light.
34 Your eye is the lamp of the body. When your eye is good, your whole body is also full of light. But when it is bad, your body is also full of darkness. 34 Your eye is the lamp of your body. When your eyes are good, your whole body also is full of light. But when they are bad, your body also is full of darkness.
35 Take care then, that the light in you is not darkness. 35 See to it, then, that the light within you is not darkness.
36 If therefore your whole body is full of light, with no part of it in darkness, the whole body will be full of light, as when a lamp shines its light on you." 36 Therefore, if your whole body is full of light, and no part of it dark, it will be completely lighted, as when the light of a lamp shines on you."
37 As He was speaking, a Pharisee asked Him to dine with him. So He went in and reclined at the table. 37 When Jesus had finished speaking, a Pharisee invited him to eat with him; so he went in and reclined at the table.
38 When the Pharisee saw this, he was amazed that He did not first perform the ritual washing before dinner. 38 But the Pharisee, noticing that Jesus did not first wash before the meal, was surprised.
39 But the Lord said to him: "Now you Pharisees clean the outside of the cup and dish, but inside you are full of greed and evil. 39 Then the Lord said to him, "Now then, you Pharisees clean the outside of the cup and dish, but inside you are full of greed and wickedness.
40 Fools! Didn't He who made the outside make the inside too? 40 You foolish people! Did not the one who made the outside make the inside also?
41 But give to charity what is within, and then everything is clean for you. 41 But give what is inside [the dish] to the poor, and everything will be clean for you.
42 "But woe to you Pharisees! You give a tenth of mint, rue, and every kind of herb, and you bypass justice and love for God. These things you should have done without neglecting the others. 42 "Woe to you Pharisees, because you give God a tenth of your mint, rue and all other kinds of garden herbs, but you neglect justice and the love of God. You should have practiced the latter without leaving the former undone.
43 "Woe to you Pharisees! You love the front seat in the synagogues and greetings in the marketplaces. 43 "Woe to you Pharisees, because you love the most important seats in the synagogues and greetings in the marketplaces.
44 "Woe to you! You are like unmarked graves; the people who walk over them don't know it." 44 "Woe to you, because you are like unmarked graves, which men walk over without knowing it."
45 One of the experts in the law answered Him, "Teacher, when You say these things You insult us too." 45 One of the experts in the law answered him, "Teacher, when you say these things, you insult us also."
46 Then He said: "Woe also to you experts in the law! You load people with burdens that are hard to carry, yet you yourselves don't touch these burdens with one of your fingers. 46 Jesus replied, "And you experts in the law, woe to you, because you load people down with burdens they can hardly carry, and you yourselves will not lift one finger to help them.
47 "Woe to you! You build monuments to the prophets, and your fathers killed them. 47 "Woe to you, because you build tombs for the prophets, and it was your forefathers who killed them.
48 Therefore you are witnesses that you approve the deeds of your fathers, for they killed them, and you build their monuments. 48 So you testify that you approve of what your forefathers did; they killed the prophets, and you build their tombs.
49 Because of this, the wisdom of God said, 'I will send them prophets and apostles, and some of them they will kill and persecute,' 49 Because of this, God in his wisdom said, 'I will send them prophets and apostles, some of whom they will kill and others they will persecute.'
50 so that this generation may be held responsible for the blood of all the prophets shed since the foundation of the world - 50 Therefore this generation will be held responsible for the blood of all the prophets that has been shed since the beginning of the world,
51 from the blood of Abel to the blood of Zechariah, who perished between the altar and the sanctuary. "Yes, I tell you, this generation will be held responsible. 51 from the blood of Abel to the blood of Zechariah, who was killed between the altar and the sanctuary. Yes, I tell you, this generation will be held responsible for it all.

You didn't go in yourselves, and you hindered those who were going in." 52 "Woe to you experts in the law, because you have taken away the key to knowledge. You yourselves have not entered, and you have hindered those who were entering."
53 When He left there, the scribes and the Pharisees began to oppose Him fiercely and to cross-examine Him about many things; 53 When Jesus left there, the Pharisees and the teachers of the law began to oppose him fiercely and to besiege him with questions,
54 they were lying in wait for Him to trap Him in something He said. 54 waiting to catch him in something he might say.
