2 And the servant of a certain centurion who was dear to him, being sick, was ready to die. 2 There a centurion's servant, whom his master valued highly, was sick and about to die.
3 And when he had heard of Jesus, he sent unto him the ancients of the Jews, desiring him to come and heal his servant. 3 The centurion heard of Jesus and sent some elders of the Jews to him, asking him to come and heal his servant.
4 And when they came to Jesus, they besought him earnestly, saying to him: He is worthy that thou shouldest do this for him. 4 When they came to Jesus, they pleaded earnestly with him, "This man deserves to have you do this,
5 For he loveth our nation: and he hath built us a synagogue. 5 because he loves our nation and has built our synagogue."
6 And Jesus went with them. And when he was now not far from the house, the centurion sent his friends to him, saying: Lord, trouble not thyself; for I am not worthy that thou shouldst enter 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 which cause neither did I think myself worthy to come to thee: but say the word, and my servant shall 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 subject to authority, having under me soldiers: and I say to one, Go, and he goeth: and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doth 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 Which Jesus hearing, marvelled: and turning about to the multitude that followed him, he said: Amen I say to you, I have not found so great faith, not even in Israel. 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 And they who were sent, being returned to the house, found the servant whole who had been sick. 10 Then the men who had been sent returned to the house and found the servant well.
11 And it came to pass afterwards that he went into a city that is called Naim: and there went with him his disciples and a great multitude. 11 Soon afterward, Jesus went to a town called Nain, and his disciples and a large crowd went along with him.
12 And when he came nigh to the gate of the city, behold a dead man was carried out, the only son of his mother: and she was a widow. And a great multitude of 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.

14 And he came near and touched the bier. And they that carried it stood still. And he said: Young man, I say to thee, 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 And he that was dead sat up and begun to speak. And he gave him to his mother. 15 The dead man sat up and began to talk, and Jesus gave him back to his mother.
16 And there came a fear upon them all: and they glorified God saying: A great prophet is risen up among us: and, God hath 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."

18 And John’s disciples told him of all these things. 18 John's disciples told him about all these things. Calling two of them,

21 (And in that same hour, he cured many of their diseases and hurts and evil spirits: and to many that were blind he gave sight.) 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 answering, he said to them: Go and relate to John what you have heard and seen: the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are made clean, the deaf hear, the dead rise again, to the poor the gospel is preached. 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.

26 But what went you out to see? A prophet? Yea, I say to you, and more than a prophet. 26 But what did you go out to see? A prophet? Yes, I tell you, and more than a prophet.

37 And behold a woman that was in the city, a sinner, when she knew that he sat at meat in the Pharisee’s house, brought an alabaster box of ointment. 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 at his feet. she began to wash his feet with tears and wiped them with the hairs of her head and kissed his feet and anointed them with the ointment. 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 And the Pharisee, who had invited him, seeing it, spoke within himself, saying: This man, if he were if a prophet, would know surely who and what manner of woman this is that toucheth 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."

42 And whereas they had not wherewith to pay, he forgave them both. Which therefore of the two loveth him most? 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 answering, said: I suppose that he to whom he forgave most. And he said to him: Thou hast judged rightly. 43 Simon replied, "I suppose the one who had the bigger debt canceled." "You have judged correctly," Jesus said.
44 And turning to the woman, he said unto Simon: Dost thou see this woman? I entered into thy house: thou gavest me no water for my feet. But she with tears hath washed my feet; and with her hairs hath wiped them. 44 Then he turned toward the woman and said to Simon, "Do you see this woman? I came into your house. You did not give me any water for my feet, but she wet my feet with her tears and wiped them with her hair.

48 And he said to her: Thy sins are forgiven thee. 48 Then Jesus said to her, "Your sins are forgiven."
49 And they that sat at meat with him began to say within themselves: Who is this that forgiveth sins also? 49 The other guests began to say among themselves, "Who is this who even forgives sins?"
