Luke 13

NLT 1 About this time Jesus was informed that Pilate had murdered some people from Galilee as they were offering sacrifices at the Temple. NIV 1 Now there were some present at that time who told Jesus about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mixed with their sacrifices. NLT 2 “Do you think those Galileans were worse sinners than all the other people from Galilee?” Jesus asked. “Is that why they suffered? NIV 2 Jesus answered, "Do you think that these Galileans were worse sinners than all the other Galileans because they suffered this way? NLT 3 Not at all! And you will perish, too, unless you repent of your sins and turn to God. NIV 3 I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish. NLT 4 And what about the eighteen people who died when the tower in Siloam fell on them? Were they the worst sinners 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? NLT 5 No, and I tell you again that unless you repent, you will perish, too.” NIV 5 I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish." NLT 6 Then Jesus told this story: “A man planted a fig tree in his garden and came again and again to see if there was any fruit on it, but he was always disappointed. 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. NLT 7 Finally, he said to his gardener, ‘I’ve waited three years, and there hasn’t been a single fig! Cut it down. It’s just taking up space in the garden.’ 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?' NLT 8 “The gardener answered, ‘Sir, give it one more chance. Leave it another year, and I’ll give it special attention and plenty of fertilizer. NIV 8 " 'Sir,' the man replied, 'leave it alone for one more year, and I'll dig around it and fertilize it. NLT 9 If we get figs next year, fine. If not, then you can cut it down.’” NIV 9 If it bears fruit next year, fine! If not, then cut it down.' " NLT 10 One Sabbath day as Jesus was teaching in a synagogue, NIV 10 On a Sabbath Jesus was teaching in one of the synagogues, NLT 11 he saw a woman who had been crippled by an evil spirit. She had been bent double for eighteen years and was unable to stand up straight. 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. NLT 12 When Jesus saw her, he called her over and said, “Dear woman, you are healed of your sickness!” NIV 12 When Jesus saw her, he called her forward and said to her, "Woman, you are set free from your infirmity." NLT 13 Then he touched her, and instantly she could stand straight. How she praised God! NIV 13 Then he put his hands on her, and immediately she straightened up and praised God. NLT 14 But the leader in charge of the synagogue was indignant that Jesus had healed her on the Sabbath day. “There are six days of the week for working,” he said to the crowd. “Come on those days to be healed, not on 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." NLT 15 But the Lord replied, “You hypocrites! Each of you works on the Sabbath day! Don’t you untie your ox or your donkey from its stall on the Sabbath and lead it out for water? 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? NLT 16 This dear woman, a daughter of Abraham, has been held in bondage by Satan for eighteen years. Isn’t it right that she be released, even on 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?" NLT 17 This shamed his enemies, but all the people rejoiced at the wonderful things he did. NIV 17 When he said this, all his opponents were humiliated, but the people were delighted with all the wonderful things he was doing. NLT 18 Then Jesus said, “What is the Kingdom of God like? How can I illustrate it? NIV 18 Then Jesus asked, "What is the kingdom of God like? What shall I compare it to? NLT 19 It is like a tiny mustard seed that a man planted in a garden; it grows and becomes a tree, and the birds make nests 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." NLT 20 He also asked, “What else is the Kingdom of God like? NIV 20 Again he asked, "What shall I compare the kingdom of God to? NLT 21 It is like the yeast a woman used in making bread. Even though she put only a little yeast in three measures of flour, it permeated every part of the dough.” 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." NLT 22 Jesus went through the towns and villages, teaching as he went, always pressing on toward Jerusalem. NIV 22 Then Jesus went through the towns and villages, teaching as he made his way to Jerusalem. NLT 23 Someone asked him, “Lord, will only a few be saved?” He replied, NIV 23 Someone asked him, "Lord, are only a few people going to be saved?" He said to them, NLT 24 “Work hard to enter the narrow door to God’s Kingdom, for many will try to enter but will fail. 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. NLT 25 When the master of the house has locked the door, it will be too late. You will stand outside knocking and pleading, ‘Lord, open the door for us!’ But he will reply, ‘I don’t know you or where you come 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.' NLT 26 Then you will say, ‘But we ate and drank with you, and you taught in our streets.’ NIV 26 "Then you will say, 'We ate and drank with you, and you taught in our streets.' NLT 27 And he will reply, ‘I tell you, I don’t know you or where you come from. Get away from me, all you who do evil.’ NIV 27 "But he will reply, 'I don't know you or where you come from. Away from me, all you evildoers!' NLT 28 “There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth, for you will see Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and all the prophets in the Kingdom of God, but you will be thrown out. 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. NLT 29 And people will come from all over the world—from east and west, north and south—to take their places 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. NLT 30 And note this: Some who seem least important now will be the greatest then, and some who are the greatest now will be least important then. ” NIV 30 Indeed there are those who are last who will be first, and first who will be last." NLT 31 At that time some Pharisees said to him, “Get away from here if you want to live! Herod Antipas 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." NLT 32 Jesus replied, “Go tell that fox that I will keep on casting out demons and healing people today and tomorrow; and the third day I will accomplish my purpose. 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.' NLT 33 Yes, today, tomorrow, and the next day I must proceed on my way. For it wouldn’t do for a prophet of God to be killed except in 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! NLT 34 “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that kills the prophets and stones God’s messengers! How often I have wanted to gather your children together as a hen protects her chicks beneath her wings, but you wouldn’t let me. 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! NLT 35 And now, look, your house is abandoned. And you will never see me again until you say, ‘Blessings on the one who comes in the name of the !’ ” 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.' "
