Luke 9

NKJV 1 Then He called His twelve disciples together and gave them power and authority over all demons, and to cure diseases. NIV 1 When Jesus had called the Twelve together, he gave them power and authority to drive out all demons and to cure diseases, NKJV 2 He sent them to preach the kingdom of God and to heal the sick. NIV 2 and he sent them out to preach the kingdom of God and to heal the sick. NKJV 3 And He said to them, "Take nothing for the journey, neither staffs nor bag nor bread nor money; and do not have two tunics apiece. NIV 3 He told them: "Take nothing for the journey--no staff, no bag, no bread, no money, no extra tunic. NKJV 4 Whatever house you enter, stay there, and from there depart. NIV 4 Whatever house you enter, stay there until you leave that town. NKJV 5 And whoever will not receive you, when you go out of that city, shake off the very dust from your feet as a testimony against them." NIV 5 If people do not welcome you, shake the dust off your feet when you leave their town, as a testimony against them." NKJV 6 So they departed and went through the towns, preaching the gospel and healing everywhere. NIV 6 So they set out and went from village to village, preaching the gospel and healing people everywhere. NKJV 7 Now Herod the tetrarch heard of all that was done by Him; and he was perplexed, because it was said by some that John had risen from the dead, NIV 7 Now Herod the tetrarch heard about all that was going on. And he was perplexed, because some were saying that John had been raised from the dead, NKJV 8 and by some that Elijah had appeared, and by others that one of the old prophets had risen again. NIV 8 others that Elijah had appeared, and still others that one of the prophets of long ago had come back to life. NKJV 9 Herod said, "John I have beheaded, but who is this of whom I hear such things?" So he sought to see Him. NIV 9 But Herod said, "I beheaded John. Who, then, is this I hear such things about?" And he tried to see him. NKJV 10 And the apostles, when they had returned, told Him all that they had done. Then He took them and went aside privately into a deserted place belonging to the city called Bethsaida. NIV 10 When the apostles returned, they reported to Jesus what they had done. Then he took them with him and they withdrew by themselves to a town called Bethsaida, NKJV 11 But when the multitudes knew it, they followed Him; and He received them and spoke to them about the kingdom of God, and healed those who had need of healing. NIV 11 but the crowds learned about it and followed him. He welcomed them and spoke to them about the kingdom of God, and healed those who needed healing. NKJV 12 When the day began to wear away, the twelve came and said to Him, "Send the multitude away, that they may go into the surrounding towns and country, and lodge and get provisions; for we are in a deserted place here." NIV 12 Late in the afternoon the Twelve came to him and said, "Send the crowd away so they can go to the surrounding villages and countryside and find food and lodging, because we are in a remote place here." NKJV 13 But He said to them, "You give them something to eat." And they said, "We have no more than five loaves and two fish, unless we go and buy food for all these people." NIV 13 He replied, "You give them something to eat." They answered, "We have only five loaves of bread and two fish--unless we go and buy food for all this crowd." NKJV 14 For there were about five thousand men. Then He said to His disciples, "Make them sit down in groups of fifty." NIV 14 (About five thousand men were there.) But he said to his disciples, "Have them sit down in groups of about fifty each." NKJV 15 And they did so, and made them all sit down. NIV 15 The disciples did so, and everybody sat down. NKJV 16 Then He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to heaven, He blessed and broke them, and gave them to the disciples to set before the multitude. NIV 16 Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke them. Then he gave them to the disciples to set before the people. NKJV 17 So they all ate and were filled, and twelve baskets of the leftover fragments were taken up by them. NIV 17 They all ate and were satisfied, and the disciples picked up twelve basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over. NKJV 18 And it happened, as He was alone praying, that His disciples joined Him, and He asked them, saying, "Who do the crowds say that I am?" NIV 18 Once when Jesus was praying in private and his disciples were with him, he asked them, "Who do the crowds say I am?" NKJV 19 So they answered and said, "John the Baptist, but some say Elijah; and others say that one of the old prophets has risen again." NIV 19 They replied, "Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, that one of the prophets of long ago has come back to life." NKJV 20 He said to them, "But who do you say that I am?" Peter answered and said, "The Christ of God." NIV 20 "But what about you?" he asked. "Who do you say I am?" Peter answered, "The Christ of God." NKJV 21 And He strictly warned and commanded them to tell this to no one, NIV 21 Jesus strictly warned them not to tell this to anyone. NKJV 22 saying, "The Son of Man must suffer many things, and be rejected by the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised the third day." NIV 22 And he said, "The Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders, chief priests and teachers of the law, and he must be killed and on the third day be raised to life." NKJV 23 Then He said to them all, "If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me. NIV 23 Then he said to them all: "If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. NKJV 24 For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will save it. NIV 24 For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will save it. NKJV 25 For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and is himself destroyed or lost? NIV 25 What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, and yet lose or forfeit his very self ? NKJV 26 For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words, of him the Son of Man will be ashamed when He comes in His own glory, and in His Father's, and of the holy angels. NIV 26 If anyone is ashamed of me and my words, the Son of Man will be ashamed of him when he comes in his glory and in the glory of the Father and of the holy angels. NKJV 27 "But I tell you truly, there are some standing here who shall not taste death till they see the kingdom of God." NIV 27 I tell you the truth, some who are standing here will not taste death before they see the kingdom of God." NKJV 28 Now it came to pass, about eight days after these sayings, that He took Peter, John, and James and went up on the mountain to pray. NIV 28 About eight days after Jesus said this, he took Peter, John and James with him and went up onto a mountain to pray. NKJV 29 As He prayed, the appearance of His face was altered, and His robe became white and glistening. NIV 29 As he was praying, the appearance of his face changed, and his clothes became as bright as a flash of lightning. NKJV 30 And behold, two men talked with Him, who were Moses and Elijah, NIV 30 Two men, Moses and Elijah, NKJV 31 who appeared in glory and spoke of His decease which He was about to accomplish at Jerusalem. NIV 31 appeared in glorious splendor, talking with Jesus. They spoke about his departure, which he was about to bring to fulfillment at Jerusalem. NKJV 32 But Peter and those with him were heavy with sleep; and when they were fully awake, they saw His glory and the two men who stood with Him. NIV 32 Peter and his companions were very sleepy, but when they became fully awake, they saw his glory and the two men standing with him. NKJV 33 Then it happened, as they were parting from Him, that Peter said to Jesus, "Master, it is good for us to be here; and let us make three tabernacles: one for You, one for Moses, and one for Elijah"--not knowing what he said. NIV 33 As the men were leaving Jesus, Peter said to him, "Master, it is good for us to be here. Let us put up three shelters--one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah." (He did not know what he was saying.) NKJV 34 While he was saying this, a cloud came and overshadowed them; and they were fearful as they entered the cloud. NIV 34 While he was speaking, a cloud appeared and enveloped them, and they were afraid as they entered the cloud. NKJV 35 And a voice came out of the cloud, saying, "This is My beloved Son. Hear Him!" NIV 35 A voice came from the cloud, saying, "This is my Son, whom I have chosen; listen to him." NKJV 36 When the voice had ceased, Jesus was found alone. But they kept quiet, and told no one in those days any of the things they had seen. NIV 36 When the voice had spoken, they found that Jesus was alone. The disciples kept this to themselves, and told no one at that time what they had seen. NKJV 37 Now it happened on the next day, when they had come down from the mountain, that a great multitude met Him. NIV 37 The next day, when they came down from the mountain, a large crowd met him. NKJV 38 Suddenly a man from the multitude cried out, saying, "Teacher, I implore You, look on my son, for he is my only child. NIV 38 A man in the crowd called out, "Teacher, I beg you to look at my son, for he is my only child. NKJV 39 And behold, a spirit seizes him, and he suddenly cries out; it convulses him so that he foams at the mouth, and it departs from him with great difficulty, bruising him. NIV 39 A spirit seizes him and he suddenly screams; it throws him into convulsions so that he foams at the mouth. It scarcely ever leaves him and is destroying him. NKJV 40 So I implored Your disciples to cast it out, but they could not." NIV 40 I begged your disciples to drive it out, but they could not." NKJV 41 Then Jesus answered and said, "O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you and bear with you? Bring your son here." NIV 41 "O unbelieving and perverse generation," Jesus replied, "how long shall I stay with you and put up with you? Bring your son here." NKJV 42 And as he was still coming, the demon threw him down and convulsed him. Then Jesus rebuked the unclean spirit, healed the child, and gave him back to his father. NIV 42 Even while the boy was coming, the demon threw him to the ground in a convulsion. But Jesus rebuked the evil spirit, healed the boy and gave him back to his father. NKJV 43 And they were all amazed at the majesty of God. But while everyone marveled at all the things which Jesus did, He said to His disciples, NIV 43 And they were all amazed at the greatness of God. While everyone was marveling at all that Jesus did, he said to his disciples, NKJV 44 "Let these words sink down into your ears, for the Son of Man is about to be betrayed into the hands of men." NIV 44 "Listen carefully to what I am about to tell you: The Son of Man is going to be betrayed into the hands of men." NKJV 45 But they did not understand this saying, and it was hidden from them so that they did not perceive it; and they were afraid to ask Him about this saying. NIV 45 But they did not understand what this meant. It was hidden from them, so that they did not grasp it, and they were afraid to ask him about it. NKJV 46 Then a dispute arose among them as to which of them would be greatest. NIV 46 An argument started among the disciples as to which of them would be the greatest. NKJV 47 And Jesus, perceiving the thought of their heart, took a little child and set him by Him, NIV 47 Jesus, knowing their thoughts, took a little child and had him stand beside him. NKJV 48 and said to them, "Whoever receives this little child in My name receives Me; and whoever receives Me receives Him who sent Me. For he who is least among you all will be great." NIV 48 Then he said to them, "Whoever welcomes this little child in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me. For he who is least among you all--he is the greatest." NKJV 49 Now John answered and said, "Master, we saw someone casting out demons in Your name, and we forbade him because he does not follow with us." NIV 49 "Master," said John, "we saw a man driving out demons in your name and we tried to stop him, because he is not one of us." NKJV 50 But Jesus said to him, "Do not forbid him, for he who is not against us is on our side." NIV 50 "Do not stop him," Jesus said, "for whoever is not against you is for you." NKJV 51 Now it came to pass, when the time had come for Him to be received up, that He steadfastly set His face to go to Jerusalem, NIV 51 As the time approached for him to be taken up to heaven, Jesus resolutely set out for Jerusalem. NKJV 52 and sent messengers before His face. And as they went, they entered a village of the Samaritans, to prepare for Him. NIV 52 And he sent messengers on ahead, who went into a Samaritan village to get things ready for him; NKJV 53 But they did not receive Him, because His face was set for the journey to Jerusalem. NIV 53 but the people there did not welcome him, because he was heading for Jerusalem. NKJV 54 And when His disciples James and John saw this, they said, "Lord, do You want us to command fire to come down from heaven and consume them, just as Elijah did?" NIV 54 When the disciples James and John saw this, they asked, "Lord, do you want us to call fire down from heaven to destroy them ?" NKJV 55 But He turned and rebuked them, and said, "You do not know what manner of spirit you are of. NIV 55 But Jesus turned and rebuked them, NKJV 56 For the Son of Man did not come to destroy men's lives but to save them." And they went to another village. NIV 56 and they went to another village. NKJV 57 Now it happened as they journeyed on the road, that someone said to Him, "Lord, I will follow You wherever You go." NIV 57 As they were walking along the road, a man said to him, "I will follow you wherever you go." NKJV 58 And Jesus said to him, "Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head." NIV 58 Jesus replied, "Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head." NKJV 59 Then He said to another, "Follow Me." But he said, "Lord, let me first go and bury my father." NIV 59 He said to another man, "Follow me." But the man replied, "Lord, first let me go and bury my father." NKJV 60 Jesus said to him, "Let the dead bury their own dead, but you go and preach the kingdom of God." NIV 60 Jesus said to him, "Let the dead bury their own dead, but you go and proclaim the kingdom of God." NKJV 61 And another also said, "Lord, I will follow You, but let me first go and bid them farewell who are at my house." NIV 61 Still another said, "I will follow you, Lord; but first let me go back and say good-by to my family." NKJV 62 But Jesus said to him, "No one, having put his hand to the plow, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God." NIV 62 Jesus replied, "No one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back is fit for service in the kingdom of God."
