Luke 9:46-56 (Douay-Rheims)

View In My Bible
46 And there entered a thought into them, which of them should be greater. 47 But Jesus seeing the thoughts of their hearts, took a child and set him by him, 48 And said to them: Whosoever shall receive this child in my name receiveth me; and whosoever shall receive me receiveth him that sent me. For he that is the lesser among you all, he is the greater. 49 And John, answering, said: Master, we saw a certain man casting out devils in thy name: and we forbade him, because he followeth not with us. 50 And Jesus said to him: Forbid him not: for he that is not against you is for you. 51 And it came to pass, when the days of his assumption were accomplishing, that he steadfastly set his face to go to Jerusalem. 52 And he sent messengers before his face: and going, they entered into a city of the Samaritans, to prepare for him. 53 And they received him not, because his face was of one going to Jerusalem. 54 And when his disciples, James and John, had seen this, they said: Lord, wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven and consume them? 55 And turning, he rebuked them, saying: you know not of what spirit you are. 56 The Son of man came not to destroy souls, but to save. And they went into another town.
