Luke 9 WYC/NIV - Online Parallel Bible

Wycliffe (WYC) New International Version (NIV)
1 And when the twelve apostles were called together, Jesus gave to them virtue and power on [upon] all devils, and that they should heal sicknesses. 1 When Jesus had called the Twelve together, he gave them power and authority to drive out all demons and to cure diseases,
2 And he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal sick men. 2 and he sent them out to preach the kingdom of God and to heal the sick.
3 And he said to them, Nothing take ye in the way, neither a staff, nor scrip, neither bread, nor money [+And he saith to them, Take ye nothing in the way, neither rod, nor scrip, neither bread, neither money], and neither have ye two coats. 3 He told them: "Take nothing for the journey--no staff, no bag, no bread, no money, no extra tunic.
4 And into what house ye enter, dwell ye there, and go ye not out from thence. [And into whatever house ye shall enter, dwell ye there, and go ye not out thence.] 4 Whatever house you enter, stay there until you leave that town.
5 And whoever receive not you, go ye out of that city, and shake ye off the powder of your feet into witnessing on them. [And whoever shall not receive you, ye going out of that city shake off also the powder of your feet into witnessing upon them.] 5 If people do not welcome you, shake the dust off your feet when you leave their town, as a testimony against them."
6 And they went forth, and went about by castles, preaching [evangelizing] and healing every where. 6 So they set out and went from village to village, preaching the gospel and healing people everywhere.
7 And Herod [the] tetrarch heard all [the] things that were done of him, and he doubted, for that it was said of some men, that John was risen from death; [+Forsooth Herod, the fourth prince/prince of the fourth part, heard all the things that were done of him, and he doubted, for that it was said of some, for John hath risen from dead;] 7 Now Herod the tetrarch heard about all that was going on. And he was perplexed, because some were saying that John had been raised from the dead,
8 and of some men, that Elias had appeared; but of others, that one of the old prophets was risen. 8 others that Elijah had appeared, and still others that one of the prophets of long ago had come back to life.
9 And Herod said, I have beheaded John; and who is this, of whom I hear such things? And he sought to see him. 9 But Herod said, "I beheaded John. Who, then, is this I hear such things about?" And he tried to see him.
10 And the apostles turned again, and told to him all things that they had done. And he took them, and went beside into a desert place, that is Bethsaida [the which is called Bethsaida]. 10 When the apostles returned, they reported to Jesus what they had done. Then he took them with him and they withdrew by themselves to a town called Bethsaida,
11 And when the people knew this, they followed him. And he received them, and spake to them of the kingdom of God; and he healed them that had need of cure [and healed them that had need of cure]. 11 but the crowds learned about it and followed him. He welcomed them and spoke to them about the kingdom of God, and healed those who needed healing.
12 And the day began to bow down, and the twelve came, and said to him, Let go the people [Leave the companies of people], that they go, and turn into the castles and towns, that be about, that they find meat [that they find meats], for we be here in a desert place. 12 Late in the afternoon the Twelve came to him and said, "Send the crowd away so they can go to the surrounding villages and countryside and find food and lodging, because we are in a remote place here."
13 And he said to them, Give ye to them to eat. And they said, There be not to us more than five loaves and two fishes, but peradventure that we go, and buy meats to all this people [and buy meats for all the company]. 13 He replied, "You give them something to eat." They answered, "We have only five loaves of bread and two fish--unless we go and buy food for all this crowd."
14 And the men were almost five thousand. And he said to his disciples, Make them sit to meat by companies, a fifty together. 14 (About five thousand men were there.) But he said to his disciples, "Have them sit down in groups of about fifty each."
15 And they did so, and they made all men sit to [the] meat. 15 The disciples did so, and everybody sat down.
16 And when he had taken the five loaves and two fishes, he beheld into heaven, and blessed them, and brake, and dealed to his disciples, that they should set before the companies. 16 Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke them. Then he gave them to the disciples to set before the people.
17 And all men ate, and were full-filled [and were filled]; and that that (was) left to them of broken meats was taken up, twelve baskets [twelve coffins]. 17 They all ate and were satisfied, and the disciples picked up twelve basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over.
18 And it was done, when he was alone praying, his disciples were with him, and he asked them, and said [saying], Whom say the people that I am? 18 Once when Jesus was praying in private and his disciples were with him, he asked them, "Who do the crowds say I am?"
19 And they answered, and said, John Baptist, others say Elias, and others say, one prophet of the former is risen [but others say, for one prophet of the former hath risen]. 19 They replied, "Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, that one of the prophets of long ago has come back to life."
20 And he said to them, But whom say ye that I am? Simon Peter answered, and said, The Christ of God [Simon Peter answering said, The Christ of God]. 20 "But what about you?" he asked. "Who do you say I am?" Peter answered, "The Christ of God."
21 And he blaming them commanded that they should say to no man, [And he blaming them commanded them that they should say to no man these things,] 21 Jesus strictly warned them not to tell this to anyone.
22 and said these things [saying], For it behooveth man's Son to suffer many things, and to be reproved of the elder men, and of the princes of priests [and princes of priests], and of the scribes, and to be slain, and the third day to rise again. 22 And he said, "The Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders, chief priests and teachers of the law, and he must be killed and on the third day be raised to life."
23 And he said to all [men], If any [man] will come after me, deny he himself, and take he his cross every day [and take his cross every day], and follow he me. 23 Then he said to them all: "If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.
24 For he that will make his life safe shall lose it; and he that loseth his life for me, shall make it safe. [Soothly he that shall desire to make his life safe, shall lose it; for why he that shall lose his life for me, shall make it safe.] 24 For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will save it.
25 And what profiteth a man, if he win all the world, and lose himself, and do impairing of himself. [Forsooth what profiteth it to a man, if he win all the world, forsooth lose himself, and do impairing to himself.] 25 What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, and yet lose or forfeit his very self ?
26 For who so shameth me and my words, man's Son shall shame him, when he cometh in his majesty [For why who that shall shame me and my words, and man's Son shall shame him, when he shall come in his majesty], and of the Father's, and of the holy angels. 26 If anyone is ashamed of me and my words, the Son of Man will be ashamed of him when he comes in his glory and in the glory of the Father and of the holy angels.
27 And I say to you, verily there be some standing here, which shall not taste death, till they see the realm of God. 27 I tell you the truth, some who are standing here will not taste death before they see the kingdom of God."
28 And it was done after these words almost eight days, and he took Peter and James and John, and he ascended into an hill, to pray. 28 About eight days after Jesus said this, he took Peter, John and James with him and went up onto a mountain to pray.
29 And while he prayed, the likeness of his face was changed, and his clothing was white shining. [And the while he prayed, the likeness of his cheer was made other manner, and his clothing white shining.] 29 As he was praying, the appearance of his face changed, and his clothes became as bright as a flash of lightning.
30 And lo! two men spake with him, and Moses and Elias 30 Two men, Moses and Elijah,
31 were seen in majesty; and they said his going out, which he should fulfill in Jerusalem. 31 appeared in glorious splendor, talking with Jesus. They spoke about his departure, which he was about to bring to fulfillment at Jerusalem.
32 And Peter, and they that were with him, were heavy of sleep [were grieved, or heavied, with sleep], and they waking saw his majesty, and the two men that stood with him. 32 Peter and his companions were very sleepy, but when they became fully awake, they saw his glory and the two men standing with him.
33 And it was done, when they departed from him, Peter said to Jesus, Commander, it is good that we be here, and make we here three tabernacles, one to thee, and one to Moses, and one to Elias. And he knew not what he should say. [And it was done, when they departed from him, Peter saith to Jesus, Commander, it is good to us for to be here, and make we here three tabernacles, one to thee, and one to Moses, and one to Elias; not witting what he should say.] 33 As the men were leaving Jesus, Peter said to him, "Master, it is good for us to be here. Let us put up three shelters--one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah." (He did not know what he was saying.)
34 But while he spake these things, a cloud was made, and overshadowed them; and they dreaded, when they entered into the cloud. 34 While he was speaking, a cloud appeared and enveloped them, and they were afraid as they entered the cloud.
35 And a voice was made out of the cloud, and said [saying], This is my dear-worthy Son, hear ye him. 35 A voice came from the cloud, saying, "This is my Son, whom I have chosen; listen to him."
36 And while the voice was made, Jesus was found alone. And they were still, and to no man said in those days any of those things, that they had seen [And they held peace, and said to no man in those days aught of those things, which they had seen]. 36 When the voice had spoken, they found that Jesus was alone. The disciples kept this to themselves, and told no one at that time what they had seen.
37 But it was done in the day following, when they came down of the hill, much people met them. 37 The next day, when they came down from the mountain, a large crowd met him.
38 And lo! a man of the company cried, and said [saying], Master, I beseech thee, behold [into] my son, for I have no more [for he is only to me]; 38 A man in the crowd called out, "Teacher, I beg you to look at my son, for he is my only child.
39 and lo! a spirit taketh him, and suddenly he crieth, and hurtleth [him] down, and draweth him with foam, and scarcely he goeth away drawing him all to pieces. 39 A spirit seizes him and he suddenly screams; it throws him into convulsions so that he foams at the mouth. It scarcely ever leaves him and is destroying him.
40 And I prayed thy disciples, that they should cast him out, and they might not. 40 I begged your disciples to drive it out, but they could not."
41 And Jesus answered and said to them, A! unfaithful generation and wayward [Soothly Jesus answering said to them, O! unfaithful generation and wayward], how long shall I be with you, and suffer you? bring hither thy son. 41 "O unbelieving and perverse generation," Jesus replied, "how long shall I stay with you and put up with you? Bring your son here."
42 And when he came nigh, the devil hurtled him down [the devil hurled him down], and wrenched him. And Jesus blamed the unclean spirit, and healed the child, and yielded him to his father. 42 Even while the boy was coming, the demon threw him to the ground in a convulsion. But Jesus rebuked the evil spirit, healed the boy and gave him back to his father.
43 And all men wondered greatly in the greatness of God. And when all men wondered in all things that he did [And all men wondering in all things which he did], he said to his disciples, 43 And they were all amazed at the greatness of God. While everyone was marveling at all that Jesus did, he said to his disciples,
44 Put ye these words in your hearts [Put ye these words in your heart], for it is to come, that man's Son be betrayed into the hands of men. 44 "Listen carefully to what I am about to tell you: The Son of Man is going to be betrayed into the hands of men."
45 And they knew not this word, and it was hid before them, that they feeled it not; and they dreaded to ask him of this word. 45 But they did not understand what this meant. It was hidden from them, so that they did not grasp it, and they were afraid to ask him about it.
46 But a thought entered into them, who of them should be greatest. 46 An argument started among the disciples as to which of them would be the greatest.
47 And Jesus, seeing the thoughts of the heart of them, took a child, and setted [set] him beside him; 47 Jesus, knowing their thoughts, took a little child and had him stand beside him.
48 and said to them, Whoever receiveth this child in my name, receiveth me; and whoever receiveth me, receiveth him that sent me; for he that is least among you all, is the greatest. [and said to them, Whoever shall receive this child in my name, receiveth me; and whoever shall receive me, receiveth him that sent me; for why he that is less among you all, this is the more.] 48 Then he said to them, "Whoever welcomes this little child in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me. For he who is least among you all--he is the greatest."
49 And John answered and said, Commander, we saw a man casting out fiends in thy name, and we have forbidden him, for he followeth not thee with us. 49 "Master," said John, "we saw a man driving out demons in your name and we tried to stop him, because he is not one of us."
50 And Jesus said to him, Do not ye forbid, for he that is not against us, is for us. 50 "Do not stop him," Jesus said, "for whoever is not against you is for you."
51 And it was done, when the days of his taking up were fulfilled, he set fast his face, to go to Jerusalem, 51 As the time approached for him to be taken up to heaven, Jesus resolutely set out for Jerusalem.
52 and sent messengers before his sight. And they went, and entered into a city of Samaritans, to make ready to him. 52 And he sent messengers on ahead, who went into a Samaritan village to get things ready for him;
53 And they received not him, for the face of him was going into Jerusalem [for the face was of him going into Jerusalem]. 53 but the people there did not welcome him, because he was heading for Jerusalem.
54 And when James and John, his disciples, saw, they said, Lord, wilt thou that we say [wilt thou that we ask], that fire come down from heaven, and waste them, [as Elias did]? 54 When the disciples James and John saw this, they asked, "Lord, do you want us to call fire down from heaven to destroy them ?"
55 And he turned, and blamed them, and said, Ye know not, whose spirits ye be; [And he turned blamed them, saying, Ye know not, whose spirit ye be;] 55 But Jesus turned and rebuked them,
56 for man's Son came not to destroy men's souls [to lose men's souls], but to save [them]. And they went into another castle. 56 and they went to another village.
57 And it was done, when they walked in the way, a man said to him [some man said to him], I shall follow thee, whither ever thou [shalt] go. 57 As they were walking along the road, a man said to him, "I will follow you wherever you go."
58 And Jesus said to him, Foxes have dens [Foxes have ditches, or dens], and birds of the air have nests, but man's Son hath not where he [shall] rest his head. 58 Jesus replied, "Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head."
59 And he said to another, Follow thou me. And he said, Lord, suffer me first to go, and bury my father. 59 He said to another man, "Follow me." But the man replied, "Lord, first let me go and bury my father."
60 And Jesus said to him, Suffer that dead men bury their dead men [Suffer that dead men bury their dead]; but go thou, and tell the kingdom of God. 60 Jesus said to him, "Let the dead bury their own dead, but you go and proclaim the kingdom of God."
61 And another said, Lord, I shall follow thee, but first suffer me to leave all things that be at home [but first suffer me to tell to them that be at home]. 61 Still another said, "I will follow you, Lord; but first let me go back and say good-by to my family."
62 And Jesus said to him, No man that putteth his hand to the plow, and beholding backward, is able to the kingdom of God. 62 Jesus replied, "No one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back is fit for service in the kingdom of God."
