Luke 13

LEB 1 Now at the same time some had come to tell him about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mixed with their sacrifices. NIV 1 Now there were some present at that time who told Jesus about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mixed with their sacrifices. LEB 2 And he answered [and] said to them, "Do you think that these Galileans were sinners worse than all the Galileans, because they suffered these [things]? NIV 2 Jesus answered, "Do you think that these Galileans were worse sinners than all the other Galileans because they suffered this way? LEB 3 No, I tell you, but unless you repent you will all perish as well! NIV 3 I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish. LEB 4 Or those eighteen on whom the tower in Siloam fell and killed them--do you think that they were sinners worse than all the people who live in Jerusalem? NIV 4 Or those eighteen who died when the tower in Siloam fell on them--do you think they were more guilty than all the others living in Jerusalem? LEB 5 No, I tell you, but unless you repent, you will all perish as well!" NIV 5 I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish." LEB 6 And he told this parable: "A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard, and he came looking for fruit on it and did not find [any]. 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. LEB 7 So he said to the gardener, 'Behold, {for three years} I have come looking for fruit on this fig tree and did not find [any]. Cut it down! Why should it even exhaust the soil?' 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?' LEB 8 But he answered [and] said to him, 'Sir, leave it alone this year also, until I dig around it and put manure on [it]. NIV 8 " 'Sir,' the man replied, 'leave it alone for one more year, and I'll dig around it and fertilize it. LEB 9 And if indeed it produces fruit in the coming [year], [so much the better], but if not, you can cut it down.'" NIV 9 If it bears fruit next year, fine! If not, then cut it down.' " LEB 10 Now he was teaching in one of the synagogues on the Sabbath. NIV 10 On a Sabbath Jesus was teaching in one of the synagogues, LEB 11 And behold, a woman [was there] who had a spirit {that had disabled her} [for] eighteen years, and she was bent over and not able to straighten herself up completely. NIV 11 and a woman was there who had been crippled by a spirit for eighteen years. She was bent over and could not straighten up at all. LEB 12 And [when he] saw her, Jesus summoned [her] and said to her, "Woman, you are freed from your disability!" NIV 12 When Jesus saw her, he called her forward and said to her, "Woman, you are set free from your infirmity." LEB 13 And he placed [his] hands on her, and immediately she straightened up and glorified God. NIV 13 Then he put his hands on her, and immediately she straightened up and praised God. LEB 14 But the ruler of the synagogue, indignant because Jesus had healed on the Sabbath, answered [and] said to the crowd, "There are six days on which it is necessary to work. Therefore come [and] be healed on them, and not on the day of the Sabbath!" NIV 14 Indignant because Jesus had healed on the Sabbath, the synagogue ruler said to the people, "There are six days for work. So come and be healed on those days, not on the Sabbath." LEB 15 But the Lord answered and said to him, "Hypocrites! Does not each one of you untie his ox or [his] donkey from the feeding trough on the Sabbath and lead [it] away to water [it]? NIV 15 The Lord answered him, "You hypocrites! Doesn't each of you on the Sabbath untie his ox or donkey from the stall and lead it out to give it water? LEB 16 And this woman, who is a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan bound {eighteen} long years--is it not necessary that she be released from this bond on the day of the Sabbath?" NIV 16 Then should not this woman, a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan has kept bound for eighteen long years, be set free on the Sabbath day from what bound her?" LEB 17 And [when] he said these [things], all those who opposed him were humiliated, and the whole crowd was rejoicing at all the splendid things that were being done by him. NIV 17 When he said this, all his opponents were humiliated, but the people were delighted with all the wonderful things he was doing. LEB 18 Therefore he said, "What is the kingdom of God like, and to what shall I compare it? NIV 18 Then Jesus asked, "What is the kingdom of God like? What shall I compare it to? LEB 19 It is like a mustard seed that a man took [and] sowed in his own garden, and it grew and became a tree, and the birds of the sky nested in its branches." NIV 19 It is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his garden. It grew and became a tree, and the birds of the air perched in its branches." LEB 20 And again he said, "To what shall I compare the kingdom of God? NIV 20 Again he asked, "What shall I compare the kingdom of God to? LEB 21 It is like yeast that a woman took [and] hid in three measures of wheat flour until the whole [batch] was leavened." NIV 21 It is like yeast that a woman took and mixed into a large amount of flour until it worked all through the dough." LEB 22 And he was going throughout towns and villages, teaching and making [his] journey toward Jerusalem. NIV 22 Then Jesus went through the towns and villages, teaching as he made his way to Jerusalem. LEB 23 And someone said to him, "Lord, {are there only} a few who are saved?" And he said to them, NIV 23 Someone asked him, "Lord, are only a few people going to be saved?" He said to them, LEB 24 "Make every effort to enter through the narrow door, because many, I tell you, will seek to enter and will not be able to, NIV 24 "Make every effort to enter through the narrow door, because many, I tell you, will try to enter and will not be able to. LEB 25 when once the master of the house has gotten up and shut the door, and you begin to stand outside and knock [on] the door, saying, 'Lord, open [the door] for us!' And he will answer [and] say to you, 'I do not know where you are from!' NIV 25 Once the owner of the house gets up and closes the door, you will stand outside knocking and pleading, 'Sir, open the door for us.' "But he will answer, 'I don't know you or where you come from.' LEB 26 Then you will begin to say, 'We ate and drank in your presence, and you taught in our streets!' NIV 26 "Then you will say, 'We ate and drank with you, and you taught in our streets.' LEB 27 And he will reply, saying to you, 'I do not know where you are from! Go away from me, all [you] {evildoers}!' NIV 27 "But he will reply, 'I don't know you or where you come from. Away from me, all you evildoers!' LEB 28 In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when you see Abraham and Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of God, but yourselves thrown outside! NIV 28 "There will be weeping there, and gnashing of teeth, when you see Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of God, but you yourselves thrown out. LEB 29 And they will come from east and west, and from north and south, and will recline at the table in the kingdom of God. NIV 29 People will come from east and west and north and south, and will take their places at the feast in the kingdom of God. LEB 30 And behold, [some] are last who will be first, and [some] are first who will be last." NIV 30 Indeed there are those who are last who will be first, and first who will be last." LEB 31 At [that] same hour some Pharisees came up [and] said to him, "Go out and depart from here, because Herod wants to kill you!" NIV 31 At that time some Pharisees came to Jesus and said to him, "Leave this place and go somewhere else. Herod wants to kill you." LEB 32 And he said to them, "Go [and] tell that fox, 'Behold, I am expelling demons and performing healings today and tomorrow, and on the third [day] I will complete [my work].' NIV 32 He replied, "Go tell that fox, 'I will drive out demons and heal people today and tomorrow, and on the third day I will reach my goal.' LEB 33 Nevertheless, it is necessary [for] me to be on the way today and tomorrow and on the next [day], because it is not possible [for] a prophet to perish outside Jerusalem. NIV 33 In any case, I must keep going today and tomorrow and the next day--for surely no prophet can die outside Jerusalem! LEB 34 "Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How many times I wanted to gather your children together {the way} a hen [gathers] her own brood under [her] wings, and you were not willing! NIV 34 "O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing! LEB 35 Behold, your house has been left to you! And I tell you, you will never see me until [the time] will come when you say, 'Blessed [is] the one who comes in the name of the Lord!'" NIV 35 Look, your house is left to you desolate. I tell you, you will not see me again until you say, 'Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.' "
