Luke 7

LEB 1 After he had finished all his statements in the hearing of the people, he entered into Capernaum. NIV 1 When Jesus had finished saying all this in the hearing of the people, he entered Capernaum. LEB 2 Now a certain centurion's slave, who was esteemed by him, {was sick} [and] was about to die. NIV 2 There a centurion's servant, whom his master valued highly, was sick and about to die. LEB 3 So [when he] heard about Jesus, he sent Jewish elders to him, asking him that he would come [and] cure his slave. NIV 3 The centurion heard of Jesus and sent some elders of the Jews to him, asking him to come and heal his servant. LEB 4 And [when they] came to Jesus, they began imploring him earnestly, saying, "He is worthy [that] you grant this for him, NIV 4 When they came to Jesus, they pleaded earnestly with him, "This man deserves to have you do this, LEB 5 because he loves our nation and he himself built the synagogue for us." NIV 5 because he loves our nation and has built our synagogue." LEB 6 So Jesus went with them. Now by this time he was not far away from the house, [and] the centurion sent friends, saying to him, "Lord, do not trouble yourself, for I am not worthy that you should come in under my roof. NIV 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. LEB 7 For this reason neither did I consider myself worthy to come to you. But say the word and my slave must be healed. NIV 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. LEB 8 For I also am a man placed under authority, who has soldiers under me, and I say to this one, 'Go!' and he goes, and to another one, 'Come!' and he comes, and to my slave, 'Do this!' and he does [it]." NIV 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." LEB 9 And [when] Jesus heard these [things], he marveled at him, and turning around to the crowd that was following him, he said, "I tell you, not even in Israel have I found such great faith!" NIV 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." LEB 10 And [when they] returned to the house, those who had been sent found the slave healthy. NIV 10 Then the men who had been sent returned to the house and found the servant well. LEB 11 And it happened that on the next [day] he went to a town called Nain, and his disciples and a large crowd went with him. NIV 11 Soon afterward, Jesus went to a town called Nain, and his disciples and a large crowd went along with him. LEB 12 And as he approached the gate of the town, behold, a man who had died was being carried out, his mother's only son, and she was a widow. And a large crowd from the town was with her. NIV 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. LEB 13 And [when] the Lord saw her, he had compassion for her and said to her, "Do not weep!" NIV 13 When the Lord saw her, his heart went out to her and he said, "Don't cry." LEB 14 And he came up [and] touched the bier, and those who were carrying [it] stopped. And he said, "Young man, I say to you, get up!" NIV 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!" LEB 15 And the dead man sat up and began to speak, and he gave him to his mother. NIV 15 The dead man sat up and began to talk, and Jesus gave him back to his mother. LEB 16 And fear seized [them] all, and they began to glorify God, saying, "A great prophet has appeared among us!" and "God has visited to help his people!" NIV 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." LEB 17 And this report about him went out in the whole of Judea and in all the surrounding region. NIV 17 This news about Jesus spread throughout Judea and the surrounding country. LEB 18 And his disciples reported to John about all these [things]. And summoning a certain two of his disciples, John NIV 18 John's disciples told him about all these things. Calling two of them, LEB 19 sent [them] to the Lord, saying, "Are you the one who is to come, or should we look for another?" NIV 19 he sent them to the Lord to ask, "Are you the one who was to come, or should we expect someone else?" LEB 20 And [when] the men came to him, they said, "John the Baptist sent us to you, saying, 'Are you the one who is to come, or should we look for another?'" NIV 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?' " LEB 21 In that hour he healed many [people] of diseases and suffering and evil spirits, and he granted sight to many blind [people]. NIV 21 At that very time Jesus cured many who had diseases, sicknesses and evil spirits, and gave sight to many who were blind. LEB 22 And he answered [and] said to them, "Go [and] tell John what you have seen and heard: the blind receive sight, the lame walk, lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear; the dead are raised, the poor have good news announced to [them]. NIV 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. LEB 23 And whoever is not offended by me is blessed." NIV 23 Blessed is the man who does not fall away on account of me." LEB 24 And [when] the messengers of John had departed, he began to speak to the crowds concerning John: "What did you go out into the wilderness to see? A reed shaken by the wind? NIV 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? LEB 25 But what did you go out to see? A man dressed in soft clothing? Behold, those who are in splendid clothing and luxury are in the royal palaces. NIV 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. LEB 26 But what did you go out to see? A prophet? Yes, I tell you, and even more than a prophet! NIV 26 But what did you go out to see? A prophet? Yes, I tell you, and more than a prophet. LEB 27 It is this man about whom it is written: 'Behold, I am sending my messenger before your face, who will prepare your way before you.'<note: A quotation from Mal 3:1; cf. Mark 1:2; Matt 11:10> NIV 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.' LEB 28 I tell you, there is no one greater among [those] born of women than John, but the one who is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he. NIV 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." LEB 29 (And all the people, [when they] heard [this]--even the tax collectors--affirmed the righteousness of God, [because they] had been baptized [with] the baptism of John, NIV 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. LEB 30 but the Pharisees and the legal experts rejected the purpose of God for themselves, [because they] had not been baptized by him.) NIV 30 But the Pharisees and experts in the law rejected God's purpose for themselves, because they had not been baptized by John.) LEB 31 "To what then shall I compare the people of this generation, and what are they like? NIV 31 "To what, then, can I compare the people of this generation? What are they like? LEB 32 They are like children sitting in the marketplace and calling out to one another, who say, 'We played the flute for you and you did not dance; we sang a lament and you did not weep.' NIV 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.' LEB 33 For John the Baptist has come not eating bread or drinking wine, and you say, 'He has a demon!' NIV 33 For John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking wine, and you say, 'He has a demon.' LEB 34 The Son of Man has come eating and drinking, and you say, 'Behold, a man [who is] a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!' NIV 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." ' LEB 35 And wisdom is vindicated by all her children." NIV 35 But wisdom is proved right by all her children." LEB 36 Now one of the Pharisees asked him to eat with him, and he entered into the house of the Pharisee [and] reclined at the table. NIV 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. LEB 37 And behold, a woman in the town who was a sinner, [when she] learned that he was dining in the Pharisee's house, brought an alabaster flask of perfumed oil, NIV 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, LEB 38 and standing behind [him] at his feet weeping, she began to wet his feet with [her] tears and was wiping [them] with the hair of her head and was kissing his feet and anointing [them] with the perfumed oil. NIV 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. LEB 39 Now [when] the Pharisee who invited him saw [this], he spoke to himself, saying, "If this man were a prophet, he would have known who and what kind of woman [this is] who is touching him, that she is a sinner." NIV 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." LEB 40 And Jesus answered [and] said to him, "Simon, I have something to say to you." And he said, "Teacher, say [it]." NIV 40 Jesus answered him, "Simon, I have something to tell you." "Tell me, teacher," he said. LEB 41 "There were two debtors [who owed] a certain creditor. One owed five hundred denarii and the other fifty. NIV 41 "Two men owed money to a certain moneylender. One owed him five hundred denarii, and the other fifty. LEB 42 [When] they were not able to repay [him], he forgave [the debts] of both. Now which of them will love him more?" NIV 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?" LEB 43 Simon answered [and] said, "I suppose that [it is the one] to whom he forgave more." And he said to him, "You have judged correctly." NIV 43 Simon replied, "I suppose the one who had the bigger debt canceled." "You have judged correctly," Jesus said. LEB 44 And turning toward the woman, he said to Simon, "Do you see this woman? I entered into your house. You did not give me water for [my] feet, but she wet my feet with [her] tears and wiped [them] with her hair. NIV 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. LEB 45 You did not give me a kiss, but from the time I entered, she has not stopped kissing my feet. NIV 45 You did not give me a kiss, but this woman, from the time I entered, has not stopped kissing my feet. LEB 46 You did not anoint my head with olive oil, but she anointed my feet with perfumed oil. NIV 46 You did not put oil on my head, but she has poured perfume on my feet. LEB 47 {For this reason} I tell you, her sins--[which were] many--have been forgiven, for she loved much. But [the one] to whom little is forgiven loves little." NIV 47 Therefore, I tell you, her many sins have been forgiven--for she loved much. But he who has been forgiven little loves little." LEB 48 And he said to her, "Your sins are forgiven." NIV 48 Then Jesus said to her, "Your sins are forgiven." LEB 49 And those who were reclining at the table with [him] began to say among themselves, "Who is this who even forgives sins?" NIV 49 The other guests began to say among themselves, "Who is this who even forgives sins?" LEB 50 And he said to the woman, "Your faith has saved you. Go in peace." NIV 50 Jesus said to the woman, "Your faith has saved you; go in peace."
