Luke 18:1-14

RHE 1 And he spoke also a parable to them, that we ought always to pray and not to faint, NIV 1 Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up. RHE 2 Saying: There was a judge in a certain city, who feared not God nor regarded man. NIV 2 He said: “In a certain town there was a judge who neither feared God nor cared what people thought. RHE 3 And there was a certain widow in that city; and she came to him, saying: Avenge me of my adversary. NIV 3 And there was a widow in that town who kept coming to him with the plea, ‘Grant me justice against my adversary.’ RHE 4 And he would not for a long time. But afterwards he said within himself: Although I fear not God nor regard man, NIV 4 “For some time he refused. But finally he said to himself, ‘Even though I don’t fear God or care what people think, RHE 5 Yet because this widow is troublesome to me, I will avenge her, lest continually coming she weary me. NIV 5 yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will see that she gets justice, so that she won’t eventually come and attack me!’ ” RHE 6 And the Lord said: Hear what the unjust judge saith. NIV 6 And the Lord said, “Listen to what the unjust judge says. RHE 7 And will not God revenge his elect who cry to him day and night? And will he have patience in their regard? NIV 7 And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off? RHE 8 I say to you that he will quickly revenge them. But yet the Son of man, when he cometh, shall he find, think you, faith on earth? NIV 8 I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?” RHE 9 And to some who trusted in themselves as just and despised others, he spoke also this parable: NIV 9 To some who were confident of their own righteousness and looked down on everyone else, Jesus told this parable: RHE 10 Two men went up into the temple to pray: the one a Pharisee and the other a publican. NIV 10 “Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. RHE 11 The Pharisee standing, prayed thus with himself: O God, I give thee thanks that I am not as the rest of men, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, as also is this publican. NIV 11 The Pharisee stood by himself and prayed: ‘God, I thank you that I am not like other people—robbers, evildoers, adulterers—or even like this tax collector. RHE 12 I fast twice in a week: I give tithes of all that I possess. NIV 12 I fast twice a week and give a tenth of all I get.’ RHE 13 And the publican, standing afar off, would not so much as lift up his eyes towards heaven; but struck his breast, saying: O God, be merciful to me a sinner. NIV 13 “But the tax collector stood at a distance. He would not even look up to heaven, but beat his breast and said, ‘God, have mercy on me, a sinner.’ RHE 14 I say to you, this man went down into his house justified rather than the other: because every one that exalteth himself shall be humbled: and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted. NIV 14 “I tell you that this man, rather than the other, went home justified before God. For all those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.”
