Wycliffe (WYC) New International Version (NIV)
1 And when he had fulfilled all his words into the ears of the people, he entered into Capernaum. 1 When Jesus had finished saying all this in the hearing of the people, he entered Capernaum.
2 But a servant of a centurion, that was precious to him, was sick, and drawing to the death. [Soothly a servant of some man centurion, having evil, was to die, the which was precious to him.] 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 to him the elder men of Jews, and prayed him [praying him], that he would 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 prayed him busily, and said to him, For he is worthy, that thou grant to him this thing; [And, when they came to Jesus, they prayed busily, saying to him, For he is worthy that thou give to him this thing;] 4 When they came to Jesus, they pleaded earnestly with him, "This man deserves to have you do this,
5 for he loveth our folk, and he builded to us a synagogue. [for he loveth our folk, and he built to us a synagogue.] 5 because he loves our nation and has built our synagogue."
6 And Jesus went with them. And when he was not far from the house, the centurion sent to him friends, and said [saying], Lord, do not thou be travailed, for I am not worthy, that thou 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 thing I deemed not myself worthy, that I come to thee; but say thou by word, and my child 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 am a man ordained under power, and have knights under me [having under me knights]; and I say to this, Go, and he goeth, and to another, Come, and he cometh, and to my servant, Do this thing, and he doeth [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 And when this thing was heard, Jesus wondered; [and he turned,] and said to the people following him, Truly I say to you, neither in Israel I found so great faith [not in Israel I found so 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 And they that were sent, turned again home, and found the servant whole [found the servant whole], that was sick. 10 Then the men who had been sent returned to the house and found the servant well.
11 And it was done afterward, Jesus went into a city, that is called Nain, and his disciples; and full great people went with him. [+And it was done afterward Jesus went into a city, that is called Nain, and his disciples went with him, and a full great company of people.] 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, lo! the son of a woman that had no more children, was borne out dead [lo! an only son of his mother was borne out dead]; and this was a widow; and much people 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.
13 And when the Lord Jesus had seen her, he had ruth on her, and said to her, Do not thou weep. 13 When the Lord saw her, his heart went out to her and he said, "Don't cry."
14 And he came nigh, and touched the bier [And he came, and touched the bier]; and they that bare the bier stood. And he said, Young man, I say to thee, rise up. 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 again, and began to speak [And he that was dead sat up, and began 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 dread took all men, and they magnified God, and said [saying], For a great prophet is risen among us, and, For 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."
17 And this word went out of him into all Judaea, and into all the country about. 17 This news about Jesus spread throughout Judea and the surrounding country.
18 And John's disciples told him of all these things. [And the disciples of John told to him of all these things.] 18 John's disciples told him about all these things. Calling two of them,
19 And John called twain of his disciples, and sent them to Jesus, and said [And John called together two of his disciples, and sent to Jesus, saying], Art thou he that is to come, or abide we another? 19 he sent them to the Lord to ask, "Are you the one who was to come, or should we expect someone else?"
20 And when the men came to him [Soothly when the men had come to him], they said, John Baptist sent us to thee, and said [saying], Art thou he that is to come, or we abide another? 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 And in that hour he healed many men of their sicknesses, and wounds, and [of] evil spirits; and he gave sight to many blind men. 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 Jesus answered, and said to them [And Jesus answering said to them], Go ye again, and tell ye to John those things that ye have heard and seen; blind men see, crooked men go, mesels be made clean, deaf men hear, dead men rise again, poor men be taken to preaching of the gospel. 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.
23 And he that shall not be caused to stumble in me [And whoever shall not be offended in me], is blessed. 23 Blessed is the man who does not fall away on account of me."
24 And when the messengers of John were gone forth [And when the messengers of John had gone away], he began to say of John to the people, What went ye out into desert to see? a reed wagged with the wind [a reed waved with the wind]? 24 After John's messengers left, Jesus began to speak to the crowd about John: "What did you go out into the desert to see? A reed swayed by the wind?
25 But what went ye out to see? a man clothed with soft clothes? Lo! they that be in [a] precious cloak [Lo! they that be in precious cloth] and in delights, be in kings' houses. 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 went ye 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.
27 This is he, of whom it is written, Lo! I send mine angel before thy face, which shall make ready thy way before thee. 27 This is the one about whom it is written: " 'I will send my messenger ahead of you, who will prepare your way before you.'
28 Certainly I say to you, there is no man a more prophet among the children of women, than is John Baptist [Soothly I say to you, among the children of women, no man is more prophet than John Baptist]; but he that is less in the kingdom of heavens, is more than he. 28 I tell you, among those born of women there is no one greater than John; yet the one who is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he."
29 And all the people hearing, and publicans, that had been baptized with the baptism of John, justified God; [And all the people hearing, and publicans, baptized with the baptism of John, justified God;] 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 wise men of the law, that were not baptized of him [forsooth Pharisees and wise men of law, not baptized of him], despised the counsel of God against themselves. 30 But the Pharisees and experts in the law rejected God's purpose for themselves, because they had not been baptized by John.)
31 And the Lord said, Therefore to whom shall I say men of this generation like, and to whom be they like? 31 "To what, then, can I compare the people of this generation? What are they like?
32 They be like to children [They be like children] sitting in the market, and speaking together, and saying, We have sung to you with pipes, and ye have not danced; we have made mourning [we have made lamentation, or mourning], and ye have not wept. 32 They are like children sitting in the marketplace and calling out to each other: " 'We played the flute for you, and you did not dance; we sang a dirge, and you did not cry.'
33 For John Baptist came, neither eating bread, nor drinking wine, and ye say, He hath a fiend. 33 For John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking wine, and you say, 'He has a demon.'
34 Man's Son came eating and drinking, and ye say, Lo! a man a devourer [Lo! a man (a) devourer, or glutton], and drinking wine, a friend of publicans and of sinful men. 34 The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and you say, 'Here is a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and "sinners." '
35 And wisdom is justified of [all] her sons. 35 But wisdom is proved right by all her children."
36 But one of the Pharisees prayed Jesus, that he should eat with him. And he entered into the house of the Pharisee, and sat at the meat. 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 lo! a sinful woman, that was in the city, as she knew, that Jesus sat at meat in the house of the Pharisee, she brought an alabaster box of ointment; [And lo! a woman sinner, that was in the city, as she knew, that Jesus had sat at the meat in the house of the Pharisee, 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 she stood behind beside his feet, and began to moist his feet with tears [and standing behind beside his feet, began to moist his feet with tears], and wiped [them] with the hairs of her head, and kissed his feet, and anointed with 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 seeing, that had called him, said within himself, saying, If this were a prophet, he should know, who and what manner woman it were that toucheth him, for she is a sinful woman. [Soothly the Pharisee seeing, that called him, saith within himself, saying, If this were a prophet, soothly he should know, who and what manner woman it is that toucheth him, for 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."
40 And Jesus answered, and said to him, Simon, I have something to say to thee. And he said, Master, say thou. [And Jesus answering said to him, Simon, I have something to say to thee. And he saith, Master, say thou.] 40 Jesus answered him, "Simon, I have something to tell you." "Tell me, teacher," he said.
41 And he answered, Two debtors were to one lender; and one owed five hundred pence, and the other fifty; [And he answered, Two debtors were to some lender, or usurer; one owed five hundred pence, and an other fifty;] 41 "Two men owed money to a certain moneylender. One owed him five hundred denarii, and the other fifty.
42 but when they had not whereof to yield, he forgave [freely] to both. Who then loveth him more? [soothly them not having whereof they should yield, he forgave freely to both. Who of them therefore loveth 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 guess, that he to whom he forgave more. And he answered to him, Thou hast deemed rightly. 43 Simon replied, "I suppose the one who had the bigger debt canceled." "You have judged correctly," Jesus said.
44 And he turned to the woman, and said to Simon, Seest thou this woman? I entered into thine house, thou gavest no water to my feet; but this hath moisted my feet with tears [forsooth this woman hath moisted my feet with tears], and wiped with her hairs. 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.
45 Thou hast not given to me a kiss; but this, since she entered, ceased not to kiss my feet. [+Thou hast not given to me a kiss; forsooth this woman, since I entered, hath not ceased to kiss my feet.] 45 You did not give me a kiss, but this woman, from the time I entered, has not stopped kissing my feet.
46 Thou anointedest not mine head with oil [Thou hast not anointed mine head with oil]; but this anointed my feet with ointment. 46 You did not put oil on my head, but she has poured perfume on my feet.
47 For which thing I say to thee, many sins be forgiven to her, for she hath loved much [for she loved much]; and to whom is less forgiven, he loveth less. 47 Therefore, I tell you, her many sins have been forgiven--for she loved much. But he who has been forgiven little loves little."
48 And Jesus said to her, Thy sins be forgiven to thee. 48 Then Jesus said to her, "Your sins are forgiven."
49 And they that sat together at the meat, began to say within themselves, Who is this that [also] forgiveth sins. 49 The other guests began to say among themselves, "Who is this who even forgives sins?"
50 But he said to the woman, Thy faith hath made thee safe; go thou in peace. 50 Jesus said to the woman, "Your faith has saved you; go in peace."
