Luke 7:36-50

NLT 36 One of the Pharisees asked Jesus to have dinner with him, so Jesus went to his home and sat down to eat. 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. NLT 37 When a certain immoral woman from that city heard he was eating there, she brought a beautiful alabaster jar filled with expensive perfume. 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, NLT 38 Then she knelt behind him at his feet, weeping. Her tears fell on his feet, and she wiped them off with her hair. Then she kept kissing his feet and putting perfume on them. 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. NLT 39 When the Pharisee who had invited him saw this, he said to himself, “If this man were a prophet, he would know what kind of woman is touching him. She’s 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." NLT 40 Then Jesus answered his thoughts. “Simon,” he said to the Pharisee, “I have something to say to you.” “Go ahead, Teacher,” Simon replied. NIV 40 Jesus answered him, "Simon, I have something to tell you." "Tell me, teacher," he said. NLT 41 Then Jesus told him this story: “A man loaned money to two people—500 pieces of silver to one and 50 pieces to the other. NIV 41 "Two men owed money to a certain moneylender. One owed him five hundred denarii, and the other fifty. NLT 42 But neither of them could repay him, so he kindly forgave them both, canceling their debts. Who do you suppose loved him more after that?” 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?" NLT 43 Simon answered, “I suppose the one for whom he canceled the larger debt.” “That’s right,” Jesus said. NIV 43 Simon replied, "I suppose the one who had the bigger debt canceled." "You have judged correctly," Jesus said. NLT 44 Then he turned to the woman and said to Simon, “Look at this woman kneeling here. When I entered your home, you didn’t offer me water to wash the dust from my feet, but she has washed them 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. NLT 45 You didn’t greet me with a kiss, but from the time I first came in, 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. NLT 46 You neglected the courtesy of olive oil to anoint my head, but she has anointed my feet with rare perfume. NIV 46 You did not put oil on my head, but she has poured perfume on my feet. NLT 47 “I tell you, her sins—and they are many—have been forgiven, so she has shown me much love. But a person who is forgiven little shows only little love.” 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." NLT 48 Then Jesus said to the woman, “Your sins are forgiven.” NIV 48 Then Jesus said to her, "Your sins are forgiven." NLT 49 The men at the table said among themselves, “Who is this man, that he goes around forgiving sins?” NIV 49 The other guests began to say among themselves, "Who is this who even forgives sins?" NLT 50 And Jesus 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."
