Luke 14:1-24

CSB 1 One Sabbath, when He went to eat at the house of one of the leading Pharisees, they were watching Him closely. NIV 1 One Sabbath, when Jesus went to eat in the house of a prominent Pharisee, he was being carefully watched. CSB 2 There in front of Him was a man whose body was swollen with fluid. NIV 2 There in front of him was a man suffering from abnormal swelling of his body. CSB 3 In response, Jesus asked the law experts and the Pharisees, "Is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath or not?" NIV 3 Jesus asked the Pharisees and experts in the law, “Is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath or not?” CSB 4 But they kept silent. He took the man, healed him, and sent him away. NIV 4 But they remained silent. So taking hold of the man, he healed him and sent him on his way. CSB 5 And to them, He said, "Which of you whose son or ox falls into a well, will not immediately pull him out on the Sabbath day?" NIV 5 Then he asked them, “If one of you has a childor an ox that falls into a well on the Sabbath day, will you not immediately pull it out?” CSB 6 To this they could find no answer. NIV 6 And they had nothing to say. CSB 7 He told a parable to those who were invited, when He noticed how they would choose the best places for themselves: NIV 7 When he noticed how the guests picked the places of honor at the table, he told them this parable: CSB 8 "When you are invited by someone to a wedding banquet, don't recline at the best place, because a more distinguished person than you may have been invited by your host. NIV 8 “When someone invites you to a wedding feast, do not take the place of honor, for a person more distinguished than you may have been invited. CSB 9 The one who invited both of you may come and say to you, 'Give your place to this man,' and then in humiliation, you will proceed to take the lowest place. NIV 9 If so, the host who invited both of you will come and say to you, ‘Give this person your seat.’ Then, humiliated, you will have to take the least important place. CSB 10 "But when you are invited, go and recline in the lowest place, so that when the one who invited you comes, he will say to you, 'Friend, move up higher.' You will then be honored in the presence of all the other guests. NIV 10 But when you are invited, take the lowest place, so that when your host comes, he will say to you, ‘Friend, move up to a better place.’ Then you will be honored in the presence of all the other guests. CSB 11 For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and the one who humbles himself will be exalted." NIV 11 For all those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.” CSB 12 He also said to the one who had invited Him, "When you give a lunch or a dinner, don't invite your friends, your brothers, your relatives, or your rich neighbors, because they might invite you back, and you would be repaid. NIV 12 Then Jesus said to his host, “When you give a luncheon or dinner, do not invite your friends, your brothers or sisters, your relatives, or your rich neighbors; if you do, they may invite you back and so you will be repaid. CSB 13 On the contrary, when you host a banquet, invite those who are poor, maimed, lame, or blind. NIV 13 But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, CSB 14 And you will be blessed, because they cannot repay you; for you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous." NIV 14 and you will be blessed. Although they cannot repay you, you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.” CSB 15 When one of those who reclined at the table with Him heard these things, he said to Him, "The one who will eat bread in the kingdom of God is blessed!" NIV 15 When one of those at the table with him heard this, he said to Jesus, “Blessed is the one who will eat at the feast in the kingdom of God.” CSB 16 Then He told him: "A man was giving a large banquet and invited many. NIV 16 Jesus replied: “A certain man was preparing a great banquet and invited many guests. CSB 17 At the time of the banquet, he sent his slave to tell those who were invited, 'Come, because everything is now ready.' NIV 17 At the time of the banquet he sent his servant to tell those who had been invited, ‘Come, for everything is now ready.’ CSB 18 "But without exception they all began to make excuses. The first one said to him, 'I have bought a field, and I must go out and see it. I ask you to excuse me.' NIV 18 “But they all alike began to make excuses. The first said, ‘I have just bought a field, and I must go and see it. Please excuse me.’ CSB 19 "Another said, 'I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I'm going to try them out. I ask you to excuse me.' NIV 19 “Another said, ‘I have just bought five yoke of oxen, and I’m on my way to try them out. Please excuse me.’ CSB 20 "And another said, 'I just got married, and therefore I'm unable to come.' NIV 20 “Still another said, ‘I just got married, so I can’t come.’ CSB 21 "So the slave came back and reported these things to his master. Then in anger, the master of the house told his slave, 'Go out quickly into the streets and alleys of the city, and bring in here the poor, maimed, blind, and lame!' NIV 21 “The servant came back and reported this to his master. Then the owner of the house became angry and ordered his servant, ‘Go out quickly into the streets and alleys of the town and bring in the poor, the crippled, the blind and the lame.’ CSB 22 " 'Master,' the slave said, 'what you ordered has been done, and there's still room.' NIV 22 “ ‘Sir,’ the servant said, ‘what you ordered has been done, but there is still room.’ CSB 23 "Then the master told the slave, 'Go out into the highways and lanes and make them come in, so that my house may be filled. NIV 23 “Then the master told his servant, ‘Go out to the roads and country lanes and compel them to come in, so that my house will be full. CSB 24 For I tell you, not one of those men who were invited will enjoy my banquet!' " NIV 24 I tell you, not one of those who were invited will get a taste of my banquet.’ ”
