GNT 31 Jesus continued, "Now to what can I compare the people of this day? What are they like? NIV 31 Jesus went on to say, “To what, then, can I compare the people of this generation? What are they like? GNT 32 They are like children sitting in the marketplace. One group shouts to the other, "We played wedding music for you, but you wouldn't dance! We sang funeral songs, but you wouldn't cry!' NIV 32 They are like children sitting in the marketplace and calling out to each other: “ ‘We played the pipe for you, and you did not dance; we sang a dirge, and you did not cry.’ GNT 33 John the Baptist came, and he fasted and drank no wine, and you said, "He has a demon in him!' NIV 33 For John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking wine, and you say, ‘He has a demon.’ GNT 34 The Son of Man came, and he ate and drank, and you said, "Look at this man! He is a glutton and wine drinker, a friend of tax collectors and other outcasts!' NIV 34 The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and you say, ‘Here is a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners.’ GNT 35 God's wisdom, however, is shown to be true by all who accept it." NIV 35 But wisdom is proved right by all her children.” GNT 36 A Pharisee invited Jesus to have dinner with him, and Jesus went to his house and sat down to eat. NIV 36 When one of the Pharisees invited Jesus to have dinner with him, he went to the Pharisee’s house and reclined at the table. GNT 37 In that town was a woman who lived a sinful life. She heard that Jesus was eating in the Pharisee's house, so she brought an alabaster jar full of perfume NIV 37 A woman in that town who lived a sinful life learned that Jesus was eating at the Pharisee’s house, so she came there with an alabaster jar of perfume. GNT 38 and stood behind Jesus, by his feet, crying and wetting his feet with her tears. Then she dried his feet with her hair, kissed them, and poured the perfume on them. NIV 38 As she stood behind him at his feet weeping, she began to wet his feet with her tears. Then she wiped them with her hair, kissed them and poured perfume on them. GNT 39 When the Pharisee saw this, he said to himself, "If this man really were a prophet, he would know who this woman is who is touching him; he would know what kind of sinful life she lives!" NIV 39 When the Pharisee who had invited him saw this, he said to himself, “If this man were a prophet, he would know who is touching him and what kind of woman she is—that she is a sinner.” GNT 40 Jesus spoke up and said to him, "Simon, I have something to tell you." "Yes, Teacher," he said, "tell me." NIV 40 Jesus answered him, “Simon, I have something to tell you.”“Tell me, teacher,” he said. GNT 41 "There were two men who owed money to a moneylender," Jesus began. "One owed him five hundred silver coins, and the other owed him fifty. NIV 41 “Two people owed money to a certain moneylender. One owed him five hundred denarii,and the other fifty. GNT 42 Neither of them could pay him back, so he canceled the debts of both. Which one, then, will love him more?" NIV 42 Neither of them had the money to pay him back, so he forgave the debts of both. Now which of them will love him more?” GNT 43 "I suppose," answered Simon, "that it would be the one who was forgiven more." "You are right," said Jesus. NIV 43 Simon replied, “I suppose the one who had the bigger debt forgiven.” “You have judged correctly,” Jesus said. GNT 44 Then he turned to the woman and said to Simon, "Do you see this woman? I came into your home, and you gave me no water for my feet, but she has washed my feet with her tears and dried them with her hair. NIV 44 Then he turned toward the woman and said to Simon, “Do you see this woman? I came into your house. You did not give me any water for my feet, but she wet my feet with her tears and wiped them with her hair. GNT 45 You did not welcome me with a kiss, but she has not stopped kissing my feet since I came. NIV 45 You did not give me a kiss, but this woman, from the time I entered, has not stopped kissing my feet. GNT 46 You provided no olive oil for my head, but she has covered my feet with perfume. NIV 46 You did not put oil on my head, but she has poured perfume on my feet. GNT 47 I tell you, then, the great love she has shown proves that her many sins have been forgiven. But whoever has been forgiven little shows only a little love." NIV 47 Therefore, I tell you, her many sins have been forgiven—as her great love has shown. But whoever has been forgiven little loves little.” GNT 48 Then Jesus said to the woman, "Your sins are forgiven." NIV 48 Then Jesus said to her, “Your sins are forgiven.” GNT 49 The others sitting at the table began to say to themselves, "Who is this, who even forgives sins?" NIV 49 The other guests began to say among themselves, “Who is this who even forgives sins?” GNT 50 But Jesus said to the woman, "Your faith has saved you; go in peace." NIV 50 Jesus said to the woman, “Your faith has saved you; go in peace.”
