NIV 1 Now there were some present at that time who told Jesus about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mixed with their sacrifices. CEB 2 He replied, "Do you think the suffering of these Galileans proves that they were more sinful than all the other Galileans? NIV 2 Jesus answered, "Do you think that these Galileans were worse sinners than all the other Galileans because they suffered this way? CEB 3 No, I tell you, but unless you change your hearts and lives, you will die just as they did. NIV 3 I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish. CEB 4 What about those eighteen people who were killed when the tower of Siloam fell on them? Do you think that they were more guilty of wrongdoing than everyone else who lives in Jerusalem?

CEB 5 No, I tell you, but unless you change your hearts and lives, you will die just as they did." NIV 5 I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish." CEB 6 Jesus told this parable: "A man owned a fig tree planted in his vineyard. He came looking for fruit on it and found none. NIV 6 Then he told this parable: "A man had a fig tree, planted in his vineyard, and he went to look for fruit on it, but did not find any. CEB 7 He said to his gardener, ‘Look, I've come looking for fruit on this fig tree for the past three years, and I've never found any. Cut it down! Why should it continue depleting the soil's nutrients?' NIV 7 So he said to the man who took care of the vineyard, 'For three years now I've been coming to look for fruit on this fig tree and haven't found any. Cut it down! Why should it use up the soil?' CEB 8 The gardener responded, ‘Lord, give it one more year, and I will dig around it and give it fertilizer. NIV 8 " 'Sir,' the man replied, 'leave it alone for one more year, and I'll dig around it and fertilize it. CEB 9 Maybe it will produce fruit next year; if not, then you can cut it down.'"

Doesn't each of you on the Sabbath untie his ox or donkey from the stall and lead it out to give it water? CEB 16 Then isn't it necessary that this woman, a daughter of Abraham, bound by Satan for eighteen long years, be set free from her bondage on the Sabbath day?"

It grew and became a tree, and the birds of the air perched in its branches." CEB 20 Again he said, "To what can I compare God's kingdom?
