1 And He spoke a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray and not to faint,
2 saying, "There was in a city a judge who feared not God, neither regarded man.
3 And there was a widow in that city, and she came unto him, saying, `Avenge me on mine adversary.'
4 And for a while he would not, but afterward he said within himself, `Though I fear not God nor regard man,
5 yet because this widow troubleth me I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me.'"
6 And the Lord said, "Hear what the unjust judge saith.
7 And shall not God avenge His own elect, who cry day and night unto Him, though He bear long with them?
8 I tell you that He will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of Man cometh, shall He find faith on the earth?"
