Luke 1:1 Forasmuch as many have taken in hand to set forth in order a
declaration of those things which are most surely believed among us,
Luke 1:2 Even as they delivered them unto us, which from the beginning were
eyewitnesses, and ministers of the word;
Luke 1:3 It seemed good to me also, having had perfect understanding of all
things from the very first, to write unto thee in order, most excellent
Luke 1:4 That thou mightest know the certainty of those things, wherein thou
hast been instructed.
Luke 1:5 There was in the days of Herod, the king of Judaea, a certain
priest named Zacharias, of the course of Abia: and his wife was of the
daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elisabeth.
Luke 1:6 And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the
commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless.
Luke 1:7 And they had no child, because that Elisabeth was barren, and they
both were now well stricken in years.
Luke 1:8 And it came to pass, that while he executed the priest's office
before God in the order of his course,
Luke 1:9 According to the custom of the priest's office, his lot was to burn
incense when he went into the temple of the Lord.
Luke 1:10 And the whole multitude of the people were praying without at the
time of incense.
Luke 1:11 And there appeared unto him an angel of the Lord standing on the
right side of the altar of incense.
Luke 1:12 And when Zacharias saw him, he was troubled, and fear fell upon
Luke 1:13 But the angel said unto him, Fear not, Zacharias: for thy prayer
is heard; and thy wife Elisabeth shall bear thee a son, and thou shalt call
his name John.
Luke 1:14 And thou shalt have joy and gladness; and many shall rejoice at
Luke 1:15 For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink
neither wine nor strong drink; and he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost,
even from his mother's womb.
Luke 1:16 And many of the children of Israel shall he turn to the Lord their
Luke 1:17 And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias, to
turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the
wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.
Luke 1:18 And Zacharias said unto the angel, Whereby shall I know this? for
I am an old man, and my wife well stricken in years.
Luke 1:19 And the angel answering said unto him, I am Gabriel, that stand in
the presence of God; and am sent to speak unto thee, and to show thee these
Luke 1:20 And, behold, thou shalt be dumb, and not able to speak, until the
day that these things shall be performed, because thou believest not my words,
which shall be fulfilled in their season.
Luke 1:21 And the people waited for Zacharias, and marvelled that he tarried
so long in the temple.
Luke 1:22 And when he came out, he could not speak unto them: and they
perceived that he had seen a vision in the temple: for he beckoned unto them,
and remained speechless.
Luke 1:23 And it came to pass, that, as soon as the days of his ministration
were accomplished, he departed to his own house.
Luke 1:24 And after those days his wife Elisabeth conceived, and hid herself
five months, saying,
Luke 1:25 Thus hath the Lord dealt with me in the days wherein he looked on
me, to take away my reproach among men.
Luke 1:26 And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a
city of Galilee, named Nazareth,
Luke 1:27 To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house
of David; and the virgin's name was Mary.
Luke 1:28 And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art
highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.
Luke 1:29 And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in
her mind what manner of salutation this should be.
Luke 1:30 And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found
favour with God.
Luke 1:31 And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a
son, and shalt call his name JESUS.
Luke 1:32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and
the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David:
Luke 1:33 And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his
kingdom there shall be no end.
Luke 1:34 Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know
not a man?
Luke 1:35 And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall
come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore
also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of
Luke 1:36 And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son
in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren.
Luke 1:37 For with God nothing shall be impossible.
Luke 1:38 And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me
according to thy word. And the angel departed from her.
Luke 1:39 And Mary arose in those days, and went into the hill country with
haste, into a city of Juda;
Luke 1:40 And entered into the house of Zacharias, and saluted Elisabeth.
Luke 1:41 And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of
Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy
Luke 1:42 And she spake out with a loud voice, and said, Blessed art thou
among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb.
Luke 1:43 And whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come
Luke 1:44 For, lo, as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in mine
ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy.
Luke 1:45 And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance
of those things which were told her from the Lord.
Luke 1:46 And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord,
Luke 1:47 And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.
Luke 1:48 For he hath regarded the low estate of his handmaiden: for,
behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed.
Luke 1:49 For he that is mighty hath done to me great things; and holy is
Luke 1:50 And his mercy is on them that fear him from generation to
Luke 1:51 He hath showed strength with his arm; he hath scattered the proud
in the imagination of their hearts.
Luke 1:52 He hath put down the mighty from their seats, and exalted them of
Luke 1:53 He hath filled the hungry with good things; and the rich he hath
sent empty away.
Luke 1:54 He hath holpen his servant Israel, in remembrance of his mercy;
Luke 1:55 As he spake to our fathers, to Abraham, and to his seed for ever.
Luke 1:56 And Mary abode with her about three months, and returned to her
Luke 1:57 Now Elisabeth's full time came that she should be delivered; and
she brought forth a son.
Luke 1:58 And her neighbours and her cousins heard how the Lord had showed
great mercy upon her; and they rejoiced with her.
Luke 1:59 And it came to pass, that on the eighth day they came to
circumcise the child; and they called him Zacharias, after the name of his
Luke 1:60 And his mother answered and said, Not so; but he shall be called
Luke 1:61 And they said unto her, There is none of thy kindred that is
called by this name.
Luke 1:62 And they made signs to his father, how he would have him called.
Luke 1:63 And he asked for a writing table, and wrote, saying, His name is
John. And they marvelled all.
Luke 1:64 And his mouth was opened immediately, and his tongue loosed, and
he spake, and praised God.
Luke 1:65 And fear came on all that dwelt round about them: and all these
sayings were noised abroad throughout all the hill country of Judaea.
Luke 1:66 And all they that heard them laid them up in their hearts, saying,
What manner of child shall this be! And the hand of the Lord was with him.
Luke 1:67 And his father Zacharias was filled with the Holy Ghost, and
Luke 1:68 Blessed be the Lord God of Israel; for he hath visited and
redeemed his people,
Luke 1:69 And hath raised up an horn of salvation for us in the house of his
Luke 1:70 As he spake by the mouth of his holy prophets, which have been
since the world began:
Luke 1:71 That we should be saved from our enemies, and from the hand of all
that hate us;
Luke 1:72 To perform the mercy promised to our fathers, and to remember his
Luke 1:73 The oath which he sware to our father Abraham,
Luke 1:74 That he would grant unto us, that we being delivered out of the
hand of our enemies might serve him without fear,
Luke 1:75 In holiness and righteousness before him, all the days of our
Luke 1:76 And thou, child, shalt be called the prophet of the Highest: for
thou shalt go before the face of the Lord to prepare his ways;
Luke 1:77 To give knowledge of salvation unto his people by the remission of
Luke 1:78 Through the tender mercy of our God; whereby the dayspring from on
high hath visited us,
Luke 1:79 To give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of
death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.
Luke 1:80 And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, and was in the
deserts till the day of his showing unto Israel.
Luke 2:1 And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree
from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed.
Luke 2:2 (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of
Luke 2:3 And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.
Luke 2:4 And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth,
into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he
was of the house and lineage of David:)
Luke 2:5 To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.
Luke 2:6 And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were
accomplished that she should be delivered.
Luke 2:7 And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in
swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for
them in the inn.
Luke 2:8 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field,
keeping watch over their flock by night.
Luke 2:9 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the
Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
Luke 2:10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you
good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
Luke 2:11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour,
which is Christ the Lord.
Luke 2:12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped
in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
Luke 2:13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly
host praising God, and saying,
Luke 2:14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward
Luke 2:15 And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into
heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem,
and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto
Luke 2:16 And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe
lying in a manger.
Luke 2:17 And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which
was told them concerning this child.
Luke 2:18 And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were
told them by the shepherds.
Luke 2:19 But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart.
Luke 2:20 And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all
the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them.
Luke 2:21 And when eight days were accomplished for the circumcising of the
child, his name was called JESUS, which was so named of the angel before he
was conceived in the womb.
Luke 2:22 And when the days of her purification according to the law of
Moses were accomplished, they brought him to Jerusalem, to present him to the
Luke 2:23 (As it is written in the law of the Lord, Every male that openeth
the womb shall be called holy to the Lord;)
Luke 2:24 And to offer a sacrifice according to that which is said in the
law of the Lord, A pair of turtledoves, or two young pigeons.
Luke 2:25 And, behold, there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was Simeon;
and the same man was just and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel:
and the Holy Ghost was upon him.
Luke 2:26 And it was revealed unto him by the Holy Ghost, that he should not
see death, before he had seen the Lord's Christ.
Luke 2:27 And he came by the Spirit into the temple: and when the parents
brought in the child Jesus, to do for him after the custom of the law,
Luke 2:28 Then took he him up in his arms, and blessed God, and said,
Luke 2:29 Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according to
Luke 2:30 For mine eyes have seen thy salvation,
Luke 2:31 Which thou hast prepared before the face of all people;
Luke 2:32 A light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of thy people
Luke 2:33 And Joseph and his mother marvelled at those things which were
spoken of him.
Luke 2:34 And Simeon blessed them, and said unto Mary his mother, Behold,
this child is set for the fall and rising again of many in Israel; and for a
sign which shall be spoken against;
Luke 2:35 (Yea, a sword shall pierce through thy own soul also,) that the
thoughts of many hearts may be revealed.
Luke 2:36 And there was one Anna, a prophetess, the daughter of Phanuel, of
the tribe of Aser: she was of a great age, and had lived with an husband seven
years from her virginity;
Luke 2:37 And she was a widow of about fourscore and four years, which
departed not from the temple, but served God with fastings and prayers night
Luke 2:38 And she coming in that instant gave thanks likewise unto the Lord,
and spake of him to all them that looked for redemption in Jerusalem.
Luke 2:39 And when they had performed all things according to the law of the
Lord, they returned into Galilee, to their own city Nazareth.
Luke 2:40 And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, filled with
wisdom: and the grace of God was upon him.
Luke 2:41 Now his parents went to Jerusalem every year at the feast of the
Luke 2:42 And when he was twelve years old, they went up to Jerusalem after
the custom of the feast.
Luke 2:43 And when they had fulfilled the days, as they returned, the child
Jesus tarried behind in Jerusalem; and Joseph and his mother knew not of it.
Luke 2:44 But they, supposing him to have been in the company, went a day's
journey; and they sought him among their kinsfolk and acquaintance.
Luke 2:45 And when they found him not, they turned back again to Jerusalem,
Luke 2:46 And it came to pass, that after three days they found him in the
temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors, both hearing them, and asking
Luke 2:47 And all that heard him were astonished at his understanding and
Luke 2:48 And when they saw him, they were amazed: and his mother said unto
him, Son, why hast thou thus dealt with us? behold, thy father and I have
sought thee sorrowing.
Luke 2:49 And he said unto them, How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not
that I must be about my Father's business?
Luke 2:50 And they understood not the saying which he spake unto them.
Luke 2:51 And he went down with them, and came to Nazareth, and was subject
unto them: but his mother kept all these sayings in her heart.
Luke 2:52 And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God
Luke 3:1 Now in the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar, Pontius
Pilate being governor of Judaea, and Herod being tetrarch of Galilee, and his
brother Philip tetrarch of Ituraea and of the region of Trachonitis, and
Lysanias the tetrarch of Abilene,
Luke 3:2 Annas and Caiaphas being the high priests, the word of God came
unto John the son of Zacharias in the wilderness.
Luke 3:3 And he came into all the country about Jordan, preaching the
baptism of repentance for the remission of sins;
Luke 3:4 As it is written in the book of the words of Esaias the prophet,
saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the
Lord, make his paths straight.
Luke 3:5 Every valley shall be filled, and every mountain and hill shall be
brought low; and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough ways shall
be made smooth;
Luke 3:6 And all flesh shall see the salvation of God.
Luke 3:7 Then said he to the multitude that came forth to be baptized of
him, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to
Luke 3:8 Bring forth therefore fruits worthy of repentance, and begin not to
say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, That
God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham.
Luke 3:9 And now also the ax is laid unto the root of the trees: every tree
therefore which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the
Luke 3:10 And the people asked him, saying, What shall we do then?
Luke 3:11 He answereth and saith unto them, He that hath two coats, let him
impart to him that hath none; and he that hath meat, let him do likewise.
Luke 3:12 Then came also publicans to be baptized, and said unto him,
Master, what shall we do?
Luke 3:13 And he said unto them, Exact no more than that which is appointed
Luke 3:14 And the soldiers likewise demanded of him, saying, And what shall
we do? And he said unto them, Do violence to no man, neither accuse any
falsely; and be content with your wages.
Luke 3:15 And as the people were in expectation, and all men mused in their
hearts of John, whether he were the Christ, or not;
Luke 3:16 John answered, saying unto them all, I indeed baptize you with
water; but one mightier than I cometh, the latchet of whose shoes I am not
worthy to unloose: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire:
Luke 3:17 Whose fan is in his hand, and he will thoroughly purge his floor,
and will gather the wheat into his garner; but the chaff he will burn with
Luke 3:18 And many other things in his exhortation preached he unto the
Luke 3:19 But Herod the tetrarch, being reproved by him for Herodias his
brother Philip's wife, and for all the evils which Herod had done,
Luke 3:20 Added yet this above all, that he shut up John in prison.
Luke 3:21 Now when all the people were baptized, it came to pass, that Jesus
also being baptized, and praying, the heaven was opened,
Luke 3:22 And the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove upon
him, and a voice came from heaven, which said, Thou art my beloved Son; in
thee I am well pleased.

Luke 4:1 And Jesus being full of the Holy Ghost returned from Jordan, and
was led by the Spirit into the wilderness,
Luke 4:2 Being forty days tempted of the devil. And in those days he did eat
nothing: and when they were ended, he afterward hungered.
Luke 4:3 And the devil said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, command
this stone that it be made bread.
Luke 4:4 And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not
live by bread alone, but by every word of God.
Luke 4:5 And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, showed unto him
all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.
Luke 4:6 And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and
the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I
Luke 4:7 If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine.
Luke 4:8 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan:
for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt
Luke 4:9 And he brought him to Jerusalem, and set him on a pinnacle of the
temple, and said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down from
Luke 4:10 For it is written, He shall give his angels charge over thee, to
Luke 4:11 And in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou
dash thy foot against a stone.
Luke 4:12 And Jesus answering said unto him, It is said, Thou shalt not
tempt the Lord thy God.
Luke 4:13 And when the devil had ended all the temptation, he departed from
him for a season.
Luke 4:14 And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee: and
there went out a fame of him through all the region round about.
Luke 4:15 And he taught in their synagogues, being glorified of all.
Luke 4:16 And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his
custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to
Luke 4:17 And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias.
And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written,
Luke 4:18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to
preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to
preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to
set at liberty them that are bruised,
Luke 4:19 To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.
Luke 4:20 And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and
sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on
Luke 4:21 And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture
fulfilled in your ears.
Luke 4:22 And all bare him witness, and wondered at the gracious words which
proceeded out of his mouth. And they said, Is not this Joseph's son?
Luke 4:23 And he said unto them, Ye will surely say unto me this proverb,
Physician, heal thyself: whatsoever we have heard done in Capernaum, do also
here in thy country.
Luke 4:24 And he said, Verily, I say unto you, No prophet is accepted in his
Luke 4:25 But I tell you of a truth, many widows were in Israel in the days
of Elias, when the heaven was shut up three years and six months, when great
famine was throughout all the land;
Luke 4:26 But unto none of them was Elias sent, save unto Sarepta, a city of
Sidon, unto a woman that was a widow.
Luke 4:27 And many lepers were in Israel in the time of Eliseus the prophet;
and none of them was cleansed, saving Naaman the Syrian.
Luke 4:28 And all they in the synagogue, when they heard these things, were
filled with wrath,
Luke 4:29 And rose up, and thrust him out of the city, and led him unto the
brow of the hill whereon their city was built, that they might cast him down
Luke 4:30 But he passing through the midst of them went his way,
Luke 4:31 And came down to Capernaum, a city of Galilee, and taught them on
the sabbath days.
Luke 4:32 And they were astonished at his doctrine: for his word was with
Luke 4:33 And in the synagogue there was a man, which had a spirit of an
unclean devil, and cried out with a loud voice,
Luke 4:34 Saying, Let us alone; what have we to do with thee, thou Jesus of
Nazareth? art thou come to destroy us? I know thee who thou art; the Holy One
Luke 4:35 And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of
him. And when the devil had thrown him in the midst, he came out of him, and
hurt him not.
Luke 4:36 And they were all amazed, and spake among themselves, saying, What
a word is this! for with authority and power he commandeth the unclean
spirits, and they come out.
Luke 4:37 And the fame of him went out into every place of the country round
Luke 4:38 And he arose out of the synagogue, and entered into Simon's house.
And Simon's wife's mother was taken with a great fever; and they besought him
Luke 4:39 And he stood over her, and rebuked the fever; and it left her: and
immediately she arose and ministered unto them.
Luke 4:40 Now when the sun was setting, all they that had any sick with
divers diseases brought them unto him; and he laid his hands on every one of
them, and healed them.
Luke 4:41 And devils also came out of many, crying out, and saying, Thou art
Christ the Son of God. And he rebuking them suffered them not to speak: for
they knew that he was Christ.
Luke 4:42 And when it was day, he departed and went into a desert place: and
the people sought him, and came unto him, and stayed him, that he should not
depart from them.
Luke 4:43 And he said unto them, I must preach the kingdom of God to other
cities also: for therefore am I sent.
Luke 4:44 And he preached in the synagogues of Galilee.
Luke 5:1 And it came to pass, that, as the people pressed upon him to hear
the word of God, he stood by the lake of Gennesaret,
Luke 5:2 And saw two ships standing by the lake: but the fishermen were gone
out of them, and were washing their nets.
Luke 5:3 And he entered into one of the ships, which was Simon's, and prayed
him that he would thrust out a little from the land. And he sat down, and
taught the people out of the ship.
Luke 5:4 Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into
the deep, and let down your nets for a draught.
Luke 5:5 And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the
night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the
Luke 5:6 And when they had this done, they enclosed a great multitude of
fishes: and their net brake.
Luke 5:7 And they beckoned unto their partners, which were in the other
ship, that they should come and help them. And they came, and filled both the
ships, so that they began to sink.
Luke 5:8 When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus' knees, saying,
Depart from me; for I am a sinful man, O Lord.
Luke 5:9 For he was astonished, and all that were with him, at the draught
of the fishes which they had taken:
Luke 5:10 And so was also James, and John, the sons of Zebedee, which were
partners with Simon. And Jesus said unto Simon, Fear not; from henceforth thou
shalt catch men.
Luke 5:11 And when they had brought their ships to land, they forsook all,
and followed him.
Luke 5:12 And it came to pass, when he was in a certain city, behold a man
full of leprosy: who seeing Jesus fell on his face, and besought him, saying,
Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.
Luke 5:13 And he put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will: be
thou clean. And immediately the leprosy departed from him.
Luke 5:14 And he charged him to tell no man: but go, and show thyself to the
priest, and offer for thy cleansing, according as Moses commanded, for a
testimony unto them.
Luke 5:15 But so much the more went there a fame abroad of him: and great
multitudes came together to hear, and to be healed by him of their
Luke 5:16 And he withdrew himself into the wilderness, and prayed.
Luke 5:17 And it came to pass on a certain day, as he was teaching, that
there were Pharisees and doctors of the law sitting by, which were come out of
every town of Galilee, and Judaea, and Jerusalem: and the power of the Lord
was present to heal them.
Luke 5:18 And, behold, men brought in a bed a man which was taken with a
palsy: and they sought means to bring him in, and to lay him before him.
Luke 5:19 And when they could not find by what way they might bring him in
because of the multitude, they went upon the housetop, and let him down
through the tiling with his couch into the midst before Jesus.
Luke 5:20 And when he saw their faith, he said unto him, Man, thy sins are
Luke 5:21 And the scribes and the Pharisees began to reason, saying, Who is
this which speaketh blasphemies? Who can forgive sins, but God alone?
Luke 5:22 But when Jesus perceived their thoughts, he answering said unto
them, What reason ye in your hearts?
Luke 5:23 Whether is easier, to say, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say,
Rise up and walk?
Luke 5:24 But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power upon earth to
forgive sins, (he said unto the sick of the palsy,) I say unto thee, Arise,
and take up thy couch, and go into thine house.
Luke 5:25 And immediately he rose up before them, and took up that whereon
he lay, and departed to his own house, glorifying God.
Luke 5:26 And they were all amazed, and they glorified God, and were filled
with fear, saying, We have seen strange things to day.
Luke 5:27 And after these things he went forth, and saw a publican, named
Levi, sitting at the receipt of custom: and he said unto him, Follow me.
Luke 5:28 And he left all, rose up, and followed him.
Luke 5:29 And Levi made him a great feast in his own house: and there was a
great company of publicans and of others that sat down with them.
Luke 5:30 But their scribes and Pharisees murmured against his disciples,
saying, Why do ye eat and drink with publicans and sinners?
Luke 5:31 And Jesus answering said unto them, They that are whole need not a
physician; but they that are sick.
Luke 5:32 I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.
Luke 5:33 And they said unto him, Why do the disciples of John fast often,
and make prayers, and likewise the disciples of the Pharisees; but thine eat
Luke 5:34 And he said unto them, Can ye make the children of the
bridechamber fast, while the bridegroom is with them?
Luke 5:35 But the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken away
from them, and then shall they fast in those days.
Luke 5:36 And he spake also a parable unto them; No man putteth a piece of a
new garment upon an old; if otherwise, then both the new maketh a rent, and
the piece that was taken out of the new agreeth not with the old.
Luke 5:37 And no man putteth new wine into old bottles; else the new wine
will burst the bottles, and be spilled, and the bottles shall perish.
Luke 5:38 But new wine must be put into new bottles; and both are preserved.
Luke 5:39 No man also having drunk old wine straightway desireth new: for he
saith, The old is better.
Luke 6:1 And it came to pass on the second sabbath after the first, that he
went through the corn fields; and his disciples plucked the ears of corn, and
did eat, rubbing them in their hands.
Luke 6:2 And certain of the Pharisees said unto them, Why do ye that which
is not lawful to do on the sabbath days?
Luke 6:3 And Jesus answering them said, Have ye not read so much as this,
what David did, when himself was an hungered, and they which were with him;
Luke 6:4 How he went into the house of God, and did take and eat the
showbread, and gave also to them that were with him; which it is not lawful to
eat but for the priests alone?
Luke 6:5 And he said unto them, That the Son of man is Lord also of the
Luke 6:6 And it came to pass also on another sabbath, that he entered into
the synagogue and taught: and there was a man whose right hand was withered.
Luke 6:7 And the scribes and Pharisees watched him, whether he would heal on
the sabbath day; that they might find an accusation against him.
Luke 6:8 But he knew their thoughts, and said to the man which had the
withered hand, Rise up, and stand forth in the midst. And he arose and stood
Luke 6:9 Then said Jesus unto them, I will ask you one thing; Is it lawful
on the sabbath days to do good, or to do evil? to save life, or to destroy it?
Luke 6:10 And looking round about upon them all, he said unto the man,
Stretch forth thy hand. And he did so: and his hand was restored whole as the
Luke 6:11 And they were filled with madness; and communed one with another
what they might do to Jesus.
Luke 6:12 And it came to pass in those days, that he went out into a
mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God.
Luke 6:13 And when it was day, he called unto him his disciples: and of them
he chose twelve, whom also he named apostles;
Luke 6:14 Simon, (whom he also named Peter,) and Andrew his brother, James
and John, Philip and Bartholomew,
Luke 6:15 Matthew and Thomas, James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon called
Luke 6:16 And Judas the brother of James, and Judas Iscariot, which also was
Luke 6:17 And he came down with them, and stood in the plain, and the
company of his disciples, and a great multitude of people out of all Judaea
and Jerusalem, and from the sea coast of Tyre and Sidon, which came to hear
him, and to be healed of their diseases;
Luke 6:18 And they that were vexed with unclean spirits: and they were
Luke 6:19 And the whole multitude sought to touch him: for there went virtue
out of him, and healed them all.
Luke 6:20 And he lifted up his eyes on his disciples, and said, Blessed be ye
poor: for yours is the kingdom of God.
Luke 6:21 Blessed are ye that hunger now: for ye shall be filled. Blessed
are ye that weep now: for ye shall laugh.
Luke 6:22 Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall
separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your
name as evil, for the Son of man's sake.
Luke 6:23 Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy: for, behold, your reward
is great in heaven: for in the like manner did their fathers unto the
Luke 6:24 But woe unto you that are rich! for ye have received your
Luke 6:25 Woe unto you that are full! for ye shall hunger. Woe unto you that
laugh now! for ye shall mourn and weep.
Luke 6:26 Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did
their fathers to the false prophets.
Luke 6:27 But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them
which hate you,
Luke 6:28 Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully
Luke 6:29 And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also the
other; and him that taketh away thy cloak forbid not to take thy coat also.
Luke 6:30 Give to every man that asketh of thee; and of him that taketh away
thy goods ask them not again.
Luke 6:31 And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them
Luke 6:32 For if ye love them which love you, what thank have ye? for
sinners also love those that love them.
Luke 6:33 And if ye do good to them which do good to you, what thank have
ye? for sinners also do even the same.
Luke 6:34 And if ye lend to them of whom ye hope to receive, what thank have
ye? for sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again.
Luke 6:35 But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for
nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of
the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil.
Luke 6:36 Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful.
Luke 6:37 Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall
not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven:
Luke 6:38 Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down,
and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For
with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.
Luke 6:39 And he spake a parable unto them, Can the blind lead the blind?
shall they not both fall into the ditch?
Luke 6:40 The disciple is not above his master: but every one that is
perfect shall be as his master.
Luke 6:41 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but
perceivest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
Luke 6:42 Either how canst thou say to thy brother, Brother, let me pull out
the mote that is in thine eye, when thou thyself beholdest not the beam that
is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, cast out first the beam out of thine own
eye, and then shalt thou see clearly to pull out the mote that is in thy
Luke 6:43 For a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth a
corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
Luke 6:44 For every tree is known by his own fruit. For of thorns men do not
gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes.
Luke 6:45 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth
that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart
bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth
Luke 6:46 And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?
Luke 6:47 Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I
will show you to whom he is like:
Luke 6:48 He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid
the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently
upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock.
Luke 6:49 But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without a
foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat
vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great.
Luke 7:1 Now when he had ended all his sayings in the audience of the
people, he entered into Capernaum.
Luke 7:2 And a certain centurion's servant, who was dear unto him, was sick,
and ready to die.
Luke 7:3 And when he heard of Jesus, he sent unto him the elders of the
Jews, beseeching him that he would come and heal his servant.
Luke 7:4 And when they came to Jesus, they besought him instantly, saying,
That he was worthy for whom he should do this:
Luke 7:5 For he loveth our nation, and he hath built us a synagogue.
Luke 7:6 Then Jesus went with them. And when he was now not far from the
house, the centurion sent friends to him, saying unto him, Lord, trouble not
thyself: for I am not worthy that thou shouldest enter under my roof:
Luke 7:7 Wherefore neither thought I myself worthy to come unto thee: but
say in a word, and my servant shall be healed.
Luke 7:8 For I also am a man set under authority, having under me soldiers,
and I say unto one, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and
to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it.
Luke 7:9 When Jesus heard these things, he marvelled at him, and turned him
about, and said unto the people that followed him, I say unto you, I have not
found so great faith, no, not in Israel.
Luke 7:10 And they that were sent, returning to the house, found the servant
whole that had been sick.
Luke 7:11 And it came to pass the day after, that he went into a city called
Nain; and many of his disciples went with him, and much people.
Luke 7:12 Now when he came nigh to the gate of the city, behold, there was a
dead man carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow: and
much people of the city was with her.
Luke 7:13 And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her, and said unto
her, Weep not.
Luke 7:14 And he came and touched the bier: and they that bare him stood
still. And he said, Young man, I say unto thee, Arise.
Luke 7:15 And he that was dead sat up, and began to speak. And he delivered
him to his mother.
Luke 7:16 And there came a fear on all: and they glorified God, saying, That
a great prophet is risen up among us; and, That God hath visited his people.
Luke 7:17 And this rumour of him went forth throughout all Judaea, and
throughout all the region round about.
Luke 7:18 And the disciples of John showed him of all these things.
Luke 7:19 And John calling unto him two of his disciples sent them to Jesus,
saying, Art thou he that should come? or look we for another?
Luke 7:20 When the men were come unto him, they said, John Baptist hath sent
us unto thee, saying, Art thou he that should come? or look we for another?
Luke 7:21 And in that same hour he cured many of their infirmities and
plagues, and of evil spirits; and unto many that were blind he gave sight.
Luke 7:22 Then Jesus answering said unto them, Go your way, and tell John
what things ye have seen and heard; how that the blind see, the lame walk, the
lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, to the poor the
gospel is preached.
Luke 7:23 And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me.
Luke 7:24 And when the messengers of John were departed, he began to speak
unto the people concerning John, What went ye out into the wilderness for to
see? A reed shaken with the wind?
Luke 7:25 But what went ye out for to see? A man clothed in soft raiment?
Behold, they which are gorgeously apparelled, and live delicately, are in
Luke 7:26 But what went ye out for to see? A prophet? Yea, I say unto you,
and much more than a prophet.
Luke 7:27 This is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger
before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.
Luke 7:28 For I say unto you, Among those that are born of women there is
not a greater prophet than John the Baptist: but he that is least in the
kingdom of God is greater than he.
Luke 7:29 And all the people that heard him, and the publicans, justified
God, being baptized with the baptism of John.
Luke 7:30 But the Pharisees and lawyers rejected the counsel of God against
themselves, being not baptized of him.
Luke 7:31 And the Lord said, Whereunto then shall I liken the men of this
generation? and to what are they like?
Luke 7:32 They are like unto children sitting in the marketplace, and
calling one to another, and saying, We have piped unto you, and ye have not
danced; we have mourned to you, and ye have not wept.
Luke 7:33 For John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking wine;
and ye say, He hath a devil.
Luke 7:34 The Son of man is come eating and drinking; and ye say, Behold a
gluttonous man, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners!
Luke 7:35 But wisdom is justified of all her children.
Luke 7:36 And one of the Pharisees desired him that he would eat with him.
And he went into the Pharisee's house, and sat down to meat.
Luke 7:37 And, behold, a woman in the city, which was a sinner, when she
knew that Jesus sat at meat in the Pharisee's house, brought an alabaster box
Luke 7:38 And stood at his feet behind him weeping, and began to wash his
feet with tears, and did wipe them with the hairs of her head, and kissed his
feet, and anointed them with the ointment.
Luke 7:39 Now when the Pharisee which had bidden him saw it, he spake within
himself, saying, This man, if he were a prophet, would have known who and what
manner of woman this is that toucheth him: for she is a sinner.
Luke 7:40 And Jesus answering said unto him, Simon, I have somewhat to say
unto thee. And he saith, Master, say on.
Luke 7:41 There was a certain creditor which had two debtors: the one owed
five hundred pence, and the other fifty.
Luke 7:42 And when they had nothing to pay, he frankly forgave them both.
Tell me therefore, which of them will love him most?
Luke 7:43 Simon answered and said, I suppose that he, to whom he forgave
most. And he said unto him, Thou hast rightly judged.
Luke 7:44 And he turned to the woman, and said unto Simon, Seest thou this
woman? I entered into thine house, thou gavest me no water for my feet: but
she hath washed my feet with tears, and wiped them with the hairs of her head.
Luke 7:45 Thou gavest me no kiss: but this woman since the time I came in
hath not ceased to kiss my feet.
Luke 7:46 My head with oil thou didst not anoint: but this woman hath
anointed my feet with ointment.
Luke 7:47 Wherefore I say unto thee, Her sins, which are many, are forgiven;
for she loved much: but to whom little is forgiven, the same loveth little.
Luke 7:48 And he said unto her, Thy sins are forgiven.
Luke 7:49 And they that sat at meat with him began to say within themselves,
Who is this that forgiveth sins also?
Luke 7:50 And he said to the woman, Thy faith hath saved thee; go in peace.
Luke 8:1 And it came to pass afterward, that he went throughout every city
and village, preaching and showing the glad tidings of the kingdom of God: and
the twelve were with him,
Luke 8:2 And certain women, which had been healed of evil spirits and
infirmities, Mary called Magdalene, out of whom went seven devils,
Luke 8:3 And Joanna the wife of Chuza Herod's steward, and Susanna, and many
others, which ministered unto him of their substance.
Luke 8:4 And when much people were gathered together, and were come to him
out of every city, he spake by a parable:
Luke 8:5 A sower went out to sow his seed: and as he sowed, some fell by the
way side; and it was trodden down, and the fowls of the air devoured it.
Luke 8:6 And some fell upon a rock; and as soon as it was sprung up, it
withered away, because it lacked moisture.
Luke 8:7 And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprang up with it, and
Luke 8:8 And other fell on good ground, and sprang up, and bare fruit an
hundredfold. And when he had said these things, he cried, He that hath ears to
hear, let him hear.
Luke 8:9 And his disciples asked him, saying, What might this parable be?
Luke 8:10 And he said, Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the
kingdom of God: but to others in parables; that seeing they might not see, and
hearing they might not understand.
Luke 8:11 Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God.
Luke 8:12 Those by the way side are they that hear; then cometh the devil,
and taketh away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be
Luke 8:13 They on the rock are they, which, when they hear, receive the word
with joy; and these have no root, which for a while believe, and in time of
temptation fall away.
Luke 8:14 And that which fell among thorns are they, which, when they have
heard, go forth, and are choked with cares and riches and pleasures of this
life, and bring no fruit to perfection.
Luke 8:15 But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good
heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience.
Luke 8:16 No man, when he hath lighted a candle, covereth it with a vessel,
or putteth it under a bed; but setteth it on a candlestick, that they which
enter in may see the light.
Luke 8:17 For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither
any thing hid, that shall not be known and come abroad.
Luke 8:18 Take heed therefore how ye hear: for whosoever hath, to him shall
be given; and whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken even that which he
seemeth to have.
Luke 8:19 Then came to him his mother and his brethren, and could not come
at him for the press.
Luke 8:20 And it was told him by certain which said, Thy mother and thy
brethren stand without, desiring to see thee.
Luke 8:21 And he answered and said unto them, My mother and my brethren are
these which hear the word of God, and do it.
Luke 8:22 Now it came to pass on a certain day, that he went into a ship
with his disciples: and he said unto them, Let us go over unto the other side
of the lake. And they launched forth.
Luke 8:23 But as they sailed he fell asleep: and there came down a storm of
wind on the lake; and they were filled with water, and were in jeopardy.
Luke 8:24 And they came to him, and awoke him, saying, Master, master, we
perish. Then he arose, and rebuked the wind and the raging of the water: and
they ceased, and there was a calm.
Luke 8:25 And he said unto them, Where is your faith? And they being afraid
wondered, saying one to another, What manner of man is this! for he commandeth
even the winds and water, and they obey him.
Luke 8:26 And they arrived at the country of the Gadarenes, which is over
Luke 8:27 And when he went forth to land, there met him out of the city a
certain man, which had devils long time, and ware no clothes, neither abode in
any house, but in the tombs.
Luke 8:28 When he saw Jesus, he cried out, and fell down before him, and
with a loud voice said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God
most high? I beseech thee, torment me not.
Luke 8:29 (For he had commanded the unclean spirit to come out of the man.
For oftentimes it had caught him: and he was kept bound with chains and in
fetters; and he brake the bands, and was driven of the devil into the
Luke 8:30 And Jesus asked him, saying, What is thy name? And he said,
Legion: because many devils were entered into him.
Luke 8:31 And they besought him that he would not command them to go out
into the deep.
Luke 8:32 And there was there an herd of many swine feeding on the mountain:
and they besought him that he would suffer them to enter into them. And he
Luke 8:33 Then went the devils out of the man, and entered into the swine:
and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the lake, and were choked.
Luke 8:34 When they that fed them saw what was done, they fled, and went and
told it in the city and in the country.
Luke 8:35 Then they went out to see what was done; and came to Jesus, and
found the man, out of whom the devils were departed, sitting at the feet of
Jesus, clothed, and in his right mind: and they were afraid.
Luke 8:36 They also which saw it told them by what means he that was
possessed of the devils was healed.
Luke 8:37 Then the whole multitude of the country of the Gadarenes round
about besought him to depart from them; for they were taken with great fear:
and he went up into the ship, and returned back again.
Luke 8:38 Now the man out of whom the devils were departed besought him that
he might be with him: but Jesus sent him away, saying,
Luke 8:39 Return to thine own house, and show how great things God hath done
unto thee. And he went his way, and published throughout the whole city how
great things Jesus had done unto him.
Luke 8:40 And it came to pass, that, when Jesus was returned, the people
gladly received him: for they were all waiting for him.
Luke 8:41 And, behold, there came a man named Jairus, and he was a ruler of
the synagogue: and he fell down at Jesus' feet, and besought him that he would
come into his house:
Luke 8:42 For he had one only daughter, about twelve years of age, and she
lay a dying. But as he went the people thronged him.
Luke 8:43 And a woman having an issue of blood twelve years, which had spent
all her living upon physicians, neither could be healed of any,
Luke 8:44 Came behind him, and touched the border of his garment: and
immediately her issue of blood stanched.
Luke 8:45 And Jesus said, Who touched me? When all denied, Peter and they
that were with him said, Master, the multitude throng thee and press thee, and
sayest thou, Who touched me?
Luke 8:46 And Jesus said, Somebody hath touched me: for I perceive that
virtue is gone out of me.
Luke 8:47 And when the woman saw that she was not hid, she came trembling,
and falling down before him, she declared unto him before all the people for
what cause she had touched him, and how she was healed immediately.
Luke 8:48 And he said unto her, Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith hath
made thee whole; go in peace.
Luke 8:49 While he yet spake, there cometh one from the ruler of the
synagogue's house, saying to him, Thy daughter is dead; trouble not the
Luke 8:50 But when Jesus heard it, he answered him, saying, Fear not:
believe only, and she shall be made whole.
Luke 8:51 And when he came into the house, he suffered no man to go in, save
Peter, and James, and John, and the father and the mother of the maiden.
Luke 8:52 And all wept, and bewailed her: but he said, Weep not; she is not
dead, but sleepeth.
Luke 8:53 And they laughed him to scorn, knowing that she was dead.
Luke 8:54 And he put them all out, and took her by the hand, and called,
saying, Maid, arise.
Luke 8:55 And her spirit came again, and she arose straightway: and he
commanded to give her meat.
Luke 8:56 And her parents were astonished: but he charged them that they
should tell no man what was done.
Luke 9:1 Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power
and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases.
Luke 9:2 And he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the
Luke 9:3 And he said unto them, Take nothing for your journey, neither
staves, nor scrip, neither bread, neither money; neither have two coats
Luke 9:4 And whatsoever house ye enter into, there abide, and thence depart.
Luke 9:5 And whosoever will not receive you, when ye go out of that city,
shake off the very dust from your feet for a testimony against them.
Luke 9:6 And they departed, and went through the towns, preaching the
gospel, and healing every where.
Luke 9:7 Now Herod the tetrarch heard of all that was done by him: and he
was perplexed, because that it was said of some, that John was risen from the
Luke 9:8 And of some, that Elias had appeared; and of others, that one of
the old prophets was risen again.
Luke 9:9 And Herod said, John have I beheaded: but who is this, of whom I
hear such things? And he desired to see him.
Luke 9:10 And the apostles, when they were returned, told him all that they
had done. And he took them, and went aside privately into a desert place
belonging to the city called Bethsaida.
Luke 9:11 And the people, when they knew it, followed him: and he received
them, and spake unto them of the kingdom of God, and healed them that had need
Luke 9:12 And when the day began to wear away, then came the twelve, and
said unto him, Send the multitude away, that they may go into the towns and
country round about, and lodge, and get victuals: for we are here in a desert
Luke 9:13 But he said unto them, Give ye them to eat. And they said, We have
no more but five loaves and two fishes; except we should go and buy meat for
all this people.
Luke 9:14 For they were about five thousand men. And he said to his
disciples, Make them sit down by fifties in a company.
Luke 9:15 And they did so, and made them all sit down.
Luke 9:16 Then he took the five loaves and the two fishes, and looking up to
heaven, he blessed them, and brake, and gave to the disciples to set before
Luke 9:17 And they did eat, and were all filled: and there was taken up of
fragments that remained to them twelve baskets.
Luke 9:18 And it came to pass, as he was alone praying, his disciples were
with him: and he asked them, saying, Whom say the people that I am?
Luke 9:19 They answering said, John the Baptist; but some say, Elias; and
others say, that one of the old prophets is risen again.
Luke 9:20 He said unto them, But whom say ye that I am? Peter answering
said, The Christ of God.
Luke 9:21 And he straitly charged them, and commanded them to tell no man
Luke 9:22 Saying, The Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of
the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be slain, and be raised the
Luke 9:23 And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him
deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.
Luke 9:24 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will
lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it.
Luke 9:25 For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose
himself, or be cast away?
Luke 9:26 For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall
the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and in his
Father's, and of the holy angels.
Luke 9:27 But I tell you of a truth, there be some standing here, which
shall not taste of death, till they see the kingdom of God.
Luke 9:28 And it came to pass about an eight days after these sayings, he
took Peter and John and James, and went up into a mountain to pray.
Luke 9:29 And as he prayed, the fashion of his countenance was altered, and
his raiment was white and glistering.
Luke 9:30 And, behold, there talked with him two men, which were Moses and
Luke 9:31 Who appeared in glory, and spake of his decease which he should
accomplish at Jerusalem.
Luke 9:32 But Peter and they that were with him were heavy with sleep: and
when they were awake, they saw his glory, and the two men that stood with him.
Luke 9:33 And it came to pass, as they departed from him, Peter said unto
Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here: and let us make three
tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias: not knowing
what he said.
Luke 9:34 While he thus spake, there came a cloud, and overshadowed them:
and they feared as they entered into the cloud.
Luke 9:35 And there came a voice out of the cloud, saying, This is my
beloved Son: hear him.
Luke 9:36 And when the voice was past, Jesus was found alone. And they kept
it close, and told no man in those days any of those things which they had
Luke 9:37 And it came to pass, that on the next day, when they were come
down from the hill, much people met him.
Luke 9:38 And, behold, a man of the company cried out, saying, Master, I
beseech thee, look upon my son: for he is mine only child.
Luke 9:39 And, lo, a spirit taketh him, and he suddenly crieth out; and it
teareth him that he foameth again, and bruising him hardly departeth from him.
Luke 9:40 And I besought thy disciples to cast him out; and they could not.
Luke 9:41 And Jesus answering said, O faithless and perverse generation, how
long shall I be with you, and suffer you? Bring thy son hither.
Luke 9:42 And as he was yet a coming, the devil threw him down, and tare him
. And Jesus rebuked the unclean spirit, and healed the child, and delivered
him again to his father.
Luke 9:43 And they were all amazed at the mighty power of God. But while
they wondered every one at all things which Jesus did, he said unto his
Luke 9:44 Let these sayings sink down into your ears: for the Son of man
shall be delivered into the hands of men.
Luke 9:45 But they understood not this saying, and it was hid from them,
that they perceived it not: and they feared to ask him of that saying.
Luke 9:46 Then there arose a reasoning among them, which of them should be
Luke 9:47 And Jesus, perceiving the thought of their heart, took a child,
and set him by him,
Luke 9:48 And said unto 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 least among you all, the same shall be great.
Luke 9:49 And John answered and said, Master, we saw one casting out devils
in thy name; and we forbad him, because he followeth not with us.
Luke 9:50 And Jesus said unto him, Forbid him not: for he that is not
against us is for us.
Luke 9:51 And it came to pass, when the time was come that he should be
received up, he stedfastly set his face to go to Jerusalem,
Luke 9:52 And sent messengers before his face: and they went, and entered
into a village of the Samaritans, to make ready for him.
Luke 9:53 And they did not receive him, because his face was as though he
would go to Jerusalem.
Luke 9:54 And when his disciples James and John saw this, they said, Lord,
wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume them,
even as Elias did?
Luke 9:55 But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner
of spirit ye are of.
Luke 9:56 For the Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save
them. And they went to another village.
Luke 9:57 And it came to pass, that, as they went in the way, a certain man
said unto him, Lord, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest.
Luke 9:58 And Jesus said unto him, Foxes have holes, and birds of the air
have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head.
Luke 9:59 And he said unto another, Follow me. But he said, Lord, suffer me
first to go and bury my father.
Luke 9:60 Jesus said unto him, Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and
preach the kingdom of God.
Luke 9:61 And another also said, Lord, I will follow thee; but let me first
go bid them farewell, which are at home at my house.
Luke 9:62 And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plow,
and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.
Luke 10:1 After these things the Lord appointed other seventy also, and sent
them two and two before his face into every city and place, whither he himself
Luke 10:2 Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the
labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would
send forth labourers into his harvest.
Luke 10:3 Go your ways: behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves.
Luke 10:4 Carry neither purse, nor scrip, nor shoes: and salute no man by
Luke 10:5 And into whatsoever house ye enter, first say, Peace be to this
Luke 10:6 And if the son of peace be there, your peace shall rest upon it:
if not, it shall turn to you again.
Luke 10:7 And in the same house remain, eating and drinking such things as
they give: for the labourer is worthy of his hire. Go not from house to house.
Luke 10:8 And into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you, eat such
things as are set before you:
Luke 10:9 And heal the sick that are therein, and say unto them, The kingdom
of God is come nigh unto you.
Luke 10:10 But into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you not, go
your ways out into the streets of the same, and say,
Luke 10:11 Even the very dust of your city, which cleaveth on us, we do wipe
off against you: notwithstanding be ye sure of this, that the kingdom of God
is come nigh unto you.
Luke 10:12 But I say unto you, that it shall be more tolerable in that day
for Sodom, than for that city.
Luke 10:13 Woe unto thee, Chorazin! woe unto thee, Bethsaida! for if the
mighty works had been done in Tyre and Sidon, which have been done in you,
they had a great while ago repented, sitting in sackcloth and ashes.
Luke 10:14 But it shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the
judgment, than for you.
Luke 10:15 And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted to heaven, shalt be thrust
down to hell.
Luke 10:16 He that heareth you heareth me; and he that despiseth you
despiseth me; and he that despiseth me despiseth him that sent me.
Luke 10:17 And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the
devils are subject unto us through thy name.
Luke 10:18 And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from
Luke 10:19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions,
and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
Luke 10:20 Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject
unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.
Luke 10:21 In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank thee, O
Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the
wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes: even so, Father; for so
it seemed good in thy sight.
Luke 10:22 All things are delivered to me of my Father: and no man knoweth
who the Son is, but the Father; and who the Father is, but the Son, and he to
whom the Son will reveal him.
Luke 10:23 And he turned him unto his disciples, and said privately, Blessed
are the eyes which see the things that ye see:
Luke 10:24 For I tell you, that many prophets and kings have desired to see
those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things
which ye hear, and have not heard them.
Luke 10:25 And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him, saying,
Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?
Luke 10:26 He said unto him, What is written in the law? how readest thou?
Luke 10:27 And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all
thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy
mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.
Luke 10:28 And he said unto him, Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou
Luke 10:29 But he, willing to justify himself, said unto Jesus, And who is
Luke 10:30 And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem
to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and
wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead.
Luke 10:31 And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when
he saw him, he passed by on the other side.
Luke 10:32 And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked
on him, and passed by on the other side.
Luke 10:33 But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and
when he saw him, he had compassion on him,
Luke 10:34 And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and
wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care
Luke 10:35 And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and
gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever
thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee.
Luke 10:36 Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him
that fell among the thieves?
Luke 10:37 And he said, He that showed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto
him, Go, and do thou likewise.
Luke 10:38 Now it came to pass, as they went, that he entered into a certain
village: and a certain woman named Martha received him into her house.
Luke 10:39 And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus' feet,
and heard his word.
Luke 10:40 But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and
said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? bid
her therefore that she help me.
Luke 10:41 And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art
careful and troubled about many things:
Luke 10:42 But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part,
which shall not be taken away from her.
Luke 11:1 And it came to pass, that, as he was praying in a certain place,
when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him, Lord, teach us to pray, as
John also taught his disciples.
Luke 11:2 And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in
heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in
heaven, so in earth.
Luke 11:3 Give us day by day our daily bread.
Luke 11:4 And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive every one that is
indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil.
Luke 11:5 And he said unto them, Which of you shall have a friend, and shall
go unto him at midnight, and say unto him, Friend, lend me three loaves;
Luke 11:6 For a friend of mine in his journey is come to me, and I have
nothing to set before him?
Luke 11:7 And he from within shall answer and say, Trouble me not: the door
is now shut, and my children are with me in bed; I cannot rise and give thee.
Luke 11:8 I say unto you, Though he will not rise and give him, because he
is his friend, yet because of his importunity he will rise and give him as
many as he needeth.
Luke 11:9 And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye
shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.
Luke 11:10 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth;
and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
Luke 11:11 If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he
give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent?
Luke 11:12 Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion?
Luke 11:13 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your
children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to
them that ask him?
Luke 11:14 And he was casting out a devil, and it was dumb. And it came to
pass, when the devil was gone out, the dumb spake; and the people wondered.
Luke 11:15 But some of them said, He casteth out devils through Beelzebub
the chief of the devils.
Luke 11:16 And others, tempting him, sought of him a sign from heaven.
Luke 11:17 But he, knowing their thoughts, said unto them, Every kingdom
divided against itself is brought to desolation; and a house divided against a
Luke 11:18 If Satan also be divided against himself, how shall his kingdom
stand? because ye say that I cast out devils through Beelzebub.
Luke 11:19 And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your sons cast
them out? therefore shall they be your judges.
Luke 11:20 But if I with the finger of God cast out devils, no doubt the
kingdom of God is come upon you.
Luke 11:21 When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in
Luke 11:22 But when a stronger than he shall come upon him, and overcome
him, he taketh from him all his armour wherein he trusted, and divideth his
Luke 11:23 He that is not with me is against me: and he that gathereth not
with me scattereth.
Luke 11:24 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through
dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he saith, I will return unto my
house whence I came out.
Luke 11:25 And when he cometh, he findeth it swept and garnished.
Luke 11:26 Then goeth he, and taketh to him seven other spirits more wicked
than himself; and they enter in, and dwell there: and the last state of that
man is worse than the first.
Luke 11:27 And it came to pass, as he spake these things, a certain woman of
the company lifted up her voice, and said unto him, Blessed is the womb that
bare thee, and the paps which thou hast sucked.
Luke 11:28 But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of
God, and keep it.
Luke 11:29 And when the people were gathered thick together, he began to
say, This is an evil generation: they seek a sign; and there shall no sign be
given it, but the sign of Jonas the prophet.
Luke 11:30 For as Jonas was a sign unto the Ninevites, so shall also the Son
of man be to this generation.
Luke 11:31 The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with the men
of this generation, and condemn them: for she came from the utmost parts of
the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is
Luke 11:32 The men of Nineve shall rise up in the judgment with this
generation, and shall condemn it: for they repented at the preaching of Jonas;
and, behold, a greater than Jonas is here.
Luke 11:33 No man, when he hath lighted a candle, putteth it in a secret
place, neither under a bushel, but on a candlestick, that they which come in
may see the light.
Luke 11:34 The light of the body is the eye: therefore when thine eye is
single, thy whole body also is full of light; but when thine eye is evil, thy
body also is full of darkness.
Luke 11:35 Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not
Luke 11:36 If thy whole body therefore be full of light, having no part
dark, the whole shall be full of light, as when the bright shining of a candle
doth give thee light.
Luke 11:37 And as he spake, a certain Pharisee besought him to dine with
him: and he went in, and sat down to meat.
Luke 11:38 And when the Pharisee saw it, he marvelled that he had not first
washed before dinner.
Luke 11:39 And the Lord said unto him, Now do ye Pharisees make clean the
outside of the cup and the platter; but your inward part is full of ravening
Luke 11:40 Ye fools, did not he that made that which is without make that
which is within also?
Luke 11:41 But rather give alms of such things as ye have; and, behold, all
things are clean unto you.
Luke 11:42 But woe unto you, Pharisees! for ye tithe mint and rue and all
manner of herbs, and pass over judgment and the love of God: these ought ye to
have done, and not to leave the other undone.
Luke 11:43 Woe unto you, Pharisees! for ye love the uppermost seats in the
synagogues, and greetings in the markets.
Luke 11:44 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are as
graves which appear not, and the men that walk over them are not aware of them
Luke 11:45 Then answered one of the lawyers, and said unto him, Master, thus
saying thou reproachest us also.
Luke 11:46 And he said, Woe unto you also, ye lawyers! for ye lade men with
burdens grievous to be borne, and ye yourselves touch not the burdens with one
of your fingers.
Luke 11:47 Woe unto you! for ye build the sepulchres of the prophets, and
your fathers killed them.
Luke 11:48 Truly ye bear witness that ye allow the deeds of your fathers:
for they indeed killed them, and ye build their sepulchres.
Luke 11:49 Therefore also said the wisdom of God, I will send them prophets
and apostles, and some of them they shall slay and persecute:
Luke 11:50 That the blood of all the prophets, which was shed from the
foundation of the world, may be required of this generation;
Luke 11:51 From the blood of Abel unto the blood of Zacharias, which
perished between the altar and the temple: verily I say unto you, It shall be
required of this generation.
Luke 11:52 Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of
knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye
Luke 11:53 And as he said these things unto them, the scribes and the
Pharisees began to urge him vehemently, and to provoke him to speak of many
Luke 11:54 Laying wait for him, and seeking to catch something out of his
mouth, that they might accuse him.
Luke 12:1 In the mean time, when there were gathered together an innumerable
multitude of people, insomuch that they trode one upon another, he began to
say unto his disciples first of all, Beware ye of the leaven of the Pharisees,
which is hypocrisy.
Luke 12:2 For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither
hid, that shall not be known.
Luke 12:3 Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in
the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear in closets shall be
proclaimed upon the housetops.
Luke 12:4 And I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the
body, and after that have no more that they can do.
Luke 12:5 But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after
he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.
Luke 12:6 Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them
is forgotten before God?
Luke 12:7 But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not
therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.
Luke 12:8 Also I say unto you, Whosoever shall confess me before men, him
shall the Son of man also confess before the angels of God:
Luke 12:9 But he that denieth me before men shall be denied before the
angels of God.
Luke 12:10 And whosoever shall speak a word against the Son of man, it shall
be forgiven him: but unto him that blasphemeth against the Holy Ghost it shall
not be forgiven.
Luke 12:11 And when they bring you unto the synagogues, and unto
magistrates, and powers, take ye no thought how or what thing ye shall answer,
or what ye shall say:
Luke 12:12 For the Holy Ghost shall teach you in the same hour what ye ought
Luke 12:13 And one of the company said unto him, Master, speak to my
brother, that he divide the inheritance with me.
Luke 12:14 And he said unto him, Man, who made me a judge or a divider over
Luke 12:15 And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for
a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he
Luke 12:16 And he spake a parable unto them, saying, The ground of a certain
rich man brought forth plentifully:
Luke 12:17 And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I
have no room where to bestow my fruits?
Luke 12:18 And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build
greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods.
Luke 12:19 And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for
many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry.
Luke 12:20 But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be
required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?
Luke 12:21 So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich
Luke 12:22 And he said unto his disciples, Therefore I say unto you, Take no
thought for your life, what ye shall eat; neither for the body, what ye shall
Luke 12:23 The life is more than meat, and the body is more than raiment.
Luke 12:24 Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither
have storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them: how much more are ye better
than the fowls?
Luke 12:25 And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one
Luke 12:26 If ye then be not able to do that thing which is least, why take
ye thought for the rest?
Luke 12:27 Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not;
and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one
Luke 12:28 If then God so clothe the grass, which is to day in the field,
and to morrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he clothe you, O ye of
Luke 12:29 And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink,
neither be ye of doubtful mind.
Luke 12:30 For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and
your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things.
Luke 12:31 But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall
be added unto you.
Luke 12:32 Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to
give you the kingdom.
Luke 12:33 Sell that ye have, and give alms; provide yourselves bags which
wax not old, a treasure in the heavens that faileth not, where no thief
approacheth, neither moth corrupteth.
Luke 12:34 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
Luke 12:35 Let your loins be girded about, and your lights burning;
Luke 12:36 And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he
will return from the wedding; that when he cometh and knocketh, they may open
unto him immediately.
Luke 12:37 Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall
find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make
them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them.
Luke 12:38 And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third
watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants.
Luke 12:39 And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what
hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his
house to be broken through.
Luke 12:40 Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour
when ye think not.
Luke 12:41 Then Peter said unto him, Lord, speakest thou this parable unto
us, or even to all?
Luke 12:42 And the Lord said, Who then is that faithful and wise steward,
whom his lord shall make ruler over his household, to give them their portion
of meat in due season?
Luke 12:43 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find
Luke 12:44 Of a truth I say unto you, that he will make him ruler over all
that he hath.
Luke 12:45 But and if that servant say in his heart, My lord delayeth his
coming; and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, and to eat and
drink, and to be drunken;
Luke 12:46 The lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not
for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder, and
will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers.
Luke 12:47 And that servant, which knew his lord's will, and prepared not
himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes.
Luke 12:48 But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes,
shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him
shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will
ask the more.
Luke 12:49 I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I, if it be
Luke 12:50 But I have a baptism to be baptized with; and how am I straitened
till it be accomplished!
Luke 12:51 Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you,
Nay; but rather division:
Luke 12:52 For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided,
three against two, and two against three.
Luke 12:53 The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against
the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the
mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law
against her mother in law.
Luke 12:54 And he said also to the people, When ye see a cloud rise out of
the west, straightway ye say, There cometh a shower; and so it is.
Luke 12:55 And when ye see the south wind blow, ye say, There will be heat;
and it cometh to pass.
Luke 12:56 Ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky and of the
earth; but how is it that ye do not discern this time?
Luke 12:57 Yea, and why even of yourselves judge ye not what is right?
Luke 12:58 When thou goest with thine adversary to the magistrate, as thou
art in the way, give diligence that thou mayest be delivered from him; lest he
hale thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and the
officer cast thee into prison.
Luke 12:59 I tell thee, thou shalt not depart thence, till thou hast paid
the very last mite.
Luke 13:1 There were present at that season some that told him of the
Galilaeans, whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices.
Luke 13:2 And Jesus answering said unto them, Suppose ye that these
Galilaeans were sinners above all the Galilaeans, because they suffered such
Luke 13:3 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise
Luke 13:4 Or those eighteen, upon whom the tower in Siloam fell, and slew
them, think ye that they were sinners above all men that dwelt in Jerusalem?
Luke 13:5 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise
Luke 13:6 He spake also this parable; A certain man had a fig tree planted
in his vineyard; and he came and sought fruit thereon, and found none.
Luke 13:7 Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these three
years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none: cut it down; why
cumbereth it the ground?
Luke 13:8 And he answering said unto him, Lord, let it alone this year also,
till I shall dig about it, and dung it:
Luke 13:9 And if it bear fruit, well: and if not, then after that thou shalt
cut it down.
Luke 13:10 And he was teaching in one of the synagogues on the sabbath.
Luke 13:11 And, behold, there was a woman which had a spirit of infirmity
eighteen years, and was bowed together, and could in no wise lift up herself.
Luke 13:12 And when Jesus saw her, he called her to him, and said unto her,
Woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity.
Luke 13:13 And he laid his hands on her: and immediately she was made
straight, and glorified God.
Luke 13:14 And the ruler of the synagogue answered with indignation, because
that Jesus had healed on the sabbath day, and said unto the people, There are
six days in which men ought to work: in them therefore come and be healed, and
not on the sabbath day.
Luke 13:15 The Lord then answered him, and said, Thou hypocrite, doth not
each one of you on the sabbath loose his ox or his ass from the stall, and
lead him away to watering?
Luke 13:16 And ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan
hath bound, lo, these eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the sabbath
Luke 13:17 And when he had said these things, all his adversaries were
ashamed: and all the people rejoiced for all the glorious things that were
done by him.
Luke 13:18 Then said he, Unto what is the kingdom of God like? and whereunto
shall I resemble it?
Luke 13:19 It is like a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and cast
into his garden; and it grew, and waxed a great tree; and the fowls of the air
lodged in the branches of it.
Luke 13:20 And again he said, Whereunto shall I liken the kingdom of God?
Luke 13:21 It is like leaven, which a woman took and hid in three measures
of meal, till the whole was leavened.
Luke 13:22 And he went through the cities and villages, teaching, and
journeying toward Jerusalem.
Luke 13:23 Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he
said unto them,
Luke 13:24 Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you,
will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.
Luke 13:25 When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to
the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying,
Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not
whence ye are:
Luke 13:26 Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy
presence, and thou hast taught in our streets.
Luke 13:27 But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are;
depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity.
Luke 13:28 There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see
Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God,
and you yourselves thrust out.
Luke 13:29 And they shall come from the east, and from the west, and from
the north, and from the south, and shall sit down in the kingdom of God.
Luke 13:30 And, behold, there are last which shall be first, and there are
first which shall be last.
Luke 13:31 The same day there came certain of the Pharisees, saying unto
him, Get thee out, and depart hence: for Herod will kill thee.
Luke 13:32 And he said unto them, Go ye, and tell that fox, Behold, I cast
out devils, and I do cures to day and to morrow, and the third day I shall be
Luke 13:33 Nevertheless I must walk to day, and to morrow, and the day
following: for it cannot be that a prophet perish out of Jerusalem.
Luke 13:34 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, which killest the prophets, and stonest
them that are sent unto thee; how often would I have gathered thy children
together, as a hen doth gather her brood under her wings, and ye would not!
Luke 13:35 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate: and verily I say
unto you, Ye shall not see me, until the time come when ye shall say, Blessed
is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.
Luke 14:1 And it came to pass, as he went into the house of one of the chief
Pharisees to eat bread on the sabbath day, that they watched him.
Luke 14:2 And, behold, there was a certain man before him which had the
Luke 14:3 And Jesus answering spake unto the lawyers and Pharisees, saying,
Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath day?
Luke 14:4 And they held their peace. And he took him, and healed him, and
let him go;
Luke 14:5 And answered them, saying, Which of you shall have an ass or an ox
fallen into a pit, and will not straightway pull him out on the sabbath day?
Luke 14:6 And they could not answer him again to these things.
Luke 14:7 And he put forth a parable to those which were bidden, when he
marked how they chose out the chief rooms; saying unto them,
Luke 14:8 When thou art bidden of any man to a wedding, sit not down in the
highest room; lest a more honourable man than thou be bidden of him;
Luke 14:9 And he that bade thee and him come and say to thee, Give this man
place; and thou begin with shame to take the lowest room.
Luke 14:10 But when thou art bidden, go and sit down in the lowest room;
that when he that bade thee cometh, he may say unto thee, Friend, go up
higher: then shalt thou have worship in the presence of them that sit at meat
Luke 14:11 For whosoever exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that
humbleth himself shall be exalted.
Luke 14:12 Then said he also to him that bade him, When thou makest a dinner
or a supper, call not thy friends, nor thy brethren, neither thy kinsmen, nor
thy rich neighbours; lest they also bid thee again, and a recompense be made
Luke 14:13 But when thou makest a feast, call the poor, the maimed, the
lame, the blind:
Luke 14:14 And thou shalt be blessed; for they cannot recompense thee: for
thou shalt be recompensed at the resurrection of the just.
Luke 14:15 And when one of them that sat at meat with him heard these
things, he said unto him, Blessed is he that shall eat bread in the kingdom of
Luke 14:16 Then said he unto him, A certain man made a great supper, and
Luke 14:17 And sent his servant at supper time to say to them that were
bidden, Come; for all things are now ready.
Luke 14:18 And they all with one consent began to make excuse. The first
said unto him, I have bought a piece of ground, and I must needs go and see
it: I pray thee have me excused.
Luke 14:19 And another said, I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to
prove them: I pray thee have me excused.
Luke 14:20 And another said, I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot
Luke 14:21 So that servant came, and showed his lord these things. Then the
master of the house being angry said to his servant, Go out quickly into the
streets and lanes of the city, and bring in hither the poor, and the maimed,
and the halt, and the blind.
Luke 14:22 And the servant said, Lord, it is done as thou hast commanded,
and yet there is room.
Luke 14:23 And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and
hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.
Luke 14:24 For I say unto you, That none of those men which were bidden
shall taste of my supper.
Luke 14:25 And there went great multitudes with him: and he turned, and said
Luke 14:26 If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and
wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he
cannot be my disciple.
Luke 14:27 And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot
be my disciple.
Luke 14:28 For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down
first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it?
Luke 14:29 Lest haply, after he hath laid the foundation, and is not able to
finish it, all that behold it begin to mock him,
Luke 14:30 Saying, This man began to build, and was not able to finish.
Luke 14:31 Or what king, going to make war against another king, sitteth not
down first, and consulteth whether he be able with ten thousand to meet him
that cometh against him with twenty thousand?
Luke 14:32 Or else, while the other is yet a great way off, he sendeth an
ambassage, and desireth conditions of peace.
Luke 14:33 So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that
he hath, he cannot be my disciple.
Luke 14:34 Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith
shall it be seasoned?
Luke 14:35 It is neither fit for the land, nor yet for the dunghill; but men
cast it out. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.
Luke 15:1 Then drew near unto him all the publicans and sinners for to hear
Luke 15:2 And the Pharisees and scribes murmured, saying, This man receiveth
sinners, and eateth with them.
Luke 15:3 And he spake this parable unto them, saying,
Luke 15:4 What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them,
doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which
is lost, until he find it?
Luke 15:5 And when he hath found it, he layeth it on his shoulders,
Luke 15:6 And when he cometh home, he calleth together his friends and
neighbours, saying unto them, Rejoice with me; for I have found my sheep which
Luke 15:7 I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one
sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need
Luke 15:8 Either what woman having ten pieces of silver, if she lose one
piece, doth not light a candle, and sweep the house, and seek diligently till
she find it?
Luke 15:9 And when she hath found it, she calleth her friends and her
neighbours together, saying, Rejoice with me; for I have found the piece which
I had lost.
Luke 15:10 Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the
angels of God over one sinner that repenteth.
Luke 15:11 And he said, A certain man had two sons:
Luke 15:12 And the younger of them said to his father, Father, give me the
portion of goods that falleth to me. And he divided unto them his living.
Luke 15:13 And not many days after the younger son gathered all together,
and took his journey into a far country, and there wasted his substance with
Luke 15:14 And when he had spent all, there arose a mighty famine in that
land; and he began to be in want.
Luke 15:15 And he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country; and
he sent him into his fields to feed swine.
Luke 15:16 And he would fain have filled his belly with the husks that the
swine did eat: and no man gave unto him.
Luke 15:17 And when he came to himself, he said, How many hired servants of
my father's have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger!
Luke 15:18 I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father,
I have sinned against heaven, and before thee,
Luke 15:19 And am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy
Luke 15:20 And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great
way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his
neck, and kissed him.
Luke 15:21 And the son said unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven,
and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son.
Luke 15:22 But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe,
and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet:
Luke 15:23 And bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it; and let us eat,
and be merry:
Luke 15:24 For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is
found. And they began to be merry.
Luke 15:25 Now his elder son was in the field: and as he came and drew nigh
to the house, he heard music and dancing.
Luke 15:26 And he called one of the servants, and asked what these things
Luke 15:27 And he said unto him, Thy brother is come; and thy father hath
killed the fatted calf, because he hath received him safe and sound.
Luke 15:28 And he was angry, and would not go in: therefore came his father
out, and entreated him.
Luke 15:29 And he answering said to his father, Lo, these many years do I
serve thee, neither transgressed I at any time thy commandment: and yet thou
never gavest me a kid, that I might make merry with my friends:
Luke 15:30 But as soon as this thy son was come, which hath devoured thy
living with harlots, thou hast killed for him the fatted calf.
Luke 15:31 And he said unto him, Son, thou art ever with me, and all that I
have is thine.
Luke 15:32 It was meet that we should make merry, and be glad: for this thy
brother was dead, and is alive again; and was lost, and is found.
Luke 16:1 And he said also unto his disciples, There was a certain rich man,
which had a steward; and the same was accused unto him that he had wasted his
Luke 16:2 And he called him, and said unto him, How is it that I hear this
of thee? give an account of thy stewardship; for thou mayest be no longer
Luke 16:3 Then the steward said within himself, What shall I do? for my lord
taketh away from me the stewardship: I cannot dig; to beg I am ashamed.
Luke 16:4 I am resolved what to do, that, when I am put out of the
stewardship, they may receive me into their houses.
Luke 16:5 So he called every one of his lord's debtors unto him, and said
unto the first, How much owest thou unto my lord?
Luke 16:6 And he said, An hundred measures of oil. And he said unto him,
Take thy bill, and sit down quickly, and write fifty.
Luke 16:7 Then said he to another, And how much owest thou? And he said, An
hundred measures of wheat. And he said unto him, Take thy bill, and write
Luke 16:8 And the lord commended the unjust steward, because he had done
wisely: for the children of this world are in their generation wiser than the
children of light.
Luke 16:9 And I say unto you, Make to yourselves friends of the mammon of
unrighteousness; that, when ye fail, they may receive you into everlasting
Luke 16:10 He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in
much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much.
Luke 16:11 If therefore ye have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon,
who will commit to your trust the true riches?
Luke 16:12 And if ye have not been faithful in that which is another man's,
who shall give you that which is your own?
Luke 16:13 No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the
one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the
other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
Luke 16:14 And the Pharisees also, who were covetous, heard all these
things: and they derided him.
Luke 16:15 And he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves
before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed
among men is abomination in the sight of God.
Luke 16:16 The law and the prophets were until John: since that time the
kingdom of God is preached, and every man presseth into it.
Luke 16:17 And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass, than one tittle of
the law to fail.
Luke 16:18 Whosoever putteth away his wife, and marrieth another, committeth
adultery: and whosoever marrieth her that is put away from her husband
Luke 16:19 There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and
fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day:
Luke 16:20 And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at
his gate, full of sores,
Luke 16:21 And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich
man's table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.
Luke 16:22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the
angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;
Luke 16:23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth
Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.
Luke 16:24 And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send
Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue;
for I am tormented in this flame.
Luke 16:25 But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime
receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is
comforted, and thou art tormented.
Luke 16:26 And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf
fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can
they pass to us, that would come from thence.
Luke 16:27 Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest
send him to my father's house:
Luke 16:28 For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest
they also come into this place of torment.
Luke 16:29 Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let
them hear them.
Luke 16:30 And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from
the dead, they will repent.
Luke 16:31 And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets,
neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.
Luke 17:1 Then said he unto the disciples, It is impossible but that
offences will come: but woe unto him, through whom they come!
Luke 17:2 It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his
neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little
Luke 17:3 Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother trespass against thee,
rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him.
Luke 17:4 And if he trespass against thee seven times in a day, and seven
times in a day turn again to thee, saying, I repent; thou shalt forgive him.
Luke 17:5 And the apostles said unto the Lord, Increase our faith.
Luke 17:6 And the Lord said, If ye had faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye
might say unto this sycamine tree, Be thou plucked up by the root, and be thou
planted in the sea; and it should obey you.
Luke 17:7 But which of you, having a servant plowing or feeding cattle, will
say unto him by and by, when he is come from the field, Go and sit down to
Luke 17:8 And will not rather say unto him, Make ready wherewith I may sup,
and gird thyself, and serve me, till I have eaten and drunken; and afterward
thou shalt eat and drink?
Luke 17:9 Doth he thank that servant because he did the things that were
commanded him? I trow not.
Luke 17:10 So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things which
are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants: we have done that which
was our duty to do.
Luke 17:11 And it came to pass, as he went to Jerusalem, that he passed
through the midst of Samaria and Galilee.
Luke 17:12 And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men
that were lepers, which stood afar off:
Luke 17:13 And they lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have
mercy on us.
Luke 17:14 And when he saw them, he said unto them, Go show yourselves unto
the priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed.
Luke 17:15 And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and
with a loud voice glorified God,
Luke 17:16 And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he
was a Samaritan.
Luke 17:17 And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where
are the nine?
Luke 17:18 There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this
Luke 17:19 And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made thee
Luke 17:20 And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of
God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with
Luke 17:21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the
kingdom of God is within you.
Luke 17:22 And he said unto the disciples, The days will come, when ye shall
desire to see one of the days of the Son of man, and ye shall not see it.
Luke 17:23 And they shall say to you, See here; or, see there: go not after
them, nor follow them.
Luke 17:24 For as the lightning, that lighteneth out of the one part under
heaven, shineth unto the other part under heaven; so shall also the Son of man
be in his day.
Luke 17:25 But first must he suffer many things, and be rejected of this
Luke 17:26 And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days
of the Son of man.
Luke 17:27 They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in
marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and
destroyed them all.
Luke 17:28 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they
drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;
Luke 17:29 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and
brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.
Luke 17:30 Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.
Luke 17:31 In that day, he which shall be upon the housetop, and his stuff
in the house, let him not come down to take it away: and he that is in the
field, let him likewise not return back.
Luke 17:32 Remember Lot's wife.
Luke 17:33 Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and
whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it.
Luke 17:34 I tell you, in that night there shall be two men in one bed; the
one shall be taken, and the other shall be left.
Luke 17:35 Two women shall be grinding together; the one shall be taken, and
the other left.
Luke 17:36 Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the
Luke 17:37 And they answered and said unto him, Where, Lord? And he said
unto them, Wheresoever the body is, thither will the eagles be gathered
Luke 18:1 And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought
always to pray, and not to faint;
Luke 18:2 Saying, There was in a city a judge, which feared not God, neither
Luke 18:3 And there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying,
Avenge me of mine adversary.
Luke 18:4 And he would not for a while: but afterward he said within
himself, Though I fear not God, nor regard man;
Luke 18:5 Yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by
her continual coming she weary me.
Luke 18:6 And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge saith.
Luke 18:7 And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night
unto him, though he bear long with them?
Luke 18:8 I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when
the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?
Luke 18:9 And he spake this parable unto certain which trusted in themselves
that they were righteous, and despised others:
Luke 18:10 Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and
the other a publican.
Luke 18:11 The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank
thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or
even as this publican.
Luke 18:12 I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess.
Luke 18:13 And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as
his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me
Luke 18:14 I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than
the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that
humbleth himself shall be exalted.
Luke 18:15 And they brought unto him also infants, that he would touch them:
but when his disciples saw it, they rebuked them.
Luke 18:16 But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Suffer little children
to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.
Luke 18:17 Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of
God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein.
Luke 18:18 And a certain ruler asked him, saying, Good Master, what shall I
do to inherit eternal life?
Luke 18:19 And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? none is good,
save one, that is, God.
Luke 18:20 Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not
kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Honour thy father and thy
Luke 18:21 And he said, All these have I kept from my youth up.
Luke 18:22 Now when Jesus heard these things, he said unto him, Yet lackest
thou one thing: sell all that thou hast, and distribute unto the poor, and
thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, follow me.
Luke 18:23 And when he heard this, he was very sorrowful: for he was very
Luke 18:24 And when Jesus saw that he was very sorrowful, he said, How
hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God!
Luke 18:25 For it is easier for a camel to go through a needle's eye, than
for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.
Luke 18:26 And they that heard it said, Who then can be saved?
Luke 18:27 And he said, The things which are impossible with men are
possible with God.
Luke 18:28 Then Peter said, Lo, we have left all, and followed thee.
Luke 18:29 And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, There is no man
that hath left house, or parents, or brethren, or wife, or children, for the
kingdom of God's sake,
Luke 18:30 Who shall not receive manifold more in this present time, and in
the world to come life everlasting.
Luke 18:31 Then he took unto him the twelve, and said unto them, Behold, we
go up to Jerusalem, and all things that are written by the prophets concerning
the Son of man shall be accomplished.
Luke 18:32 For he shall be delivered unto the Gentiles, and shall be mocked,
and spitefully entreated, and spitted on:
Luke 18:33 And they shall scourge him, and put him to death: and the third
day he shall rise again.
Luke 18:34 And they understood none of these things: and this saying was hid
from them, neither knew they the things which were spoken.
Luke 18:35 And it came to pass, that as he was come nigh unto Jericho, a
certain blind man sat by the way side begging:
Luke 18:36 And hearing the multitude pass by, he asked what it meant.
Luke 18:37 And they told him, that Jesus of Nazareth passeth by.
Luke 18:38 And he cried, saying, Jesus, thou son of David, have mercy on me.
Luke 18:39 And they which went before rebuked him, that he should hold his
peace: but he cried so much the more, Thou son of David, have mercy on me.
Luke 18:40 And Jesus stood, and commanded him to be brought unto him: and
when he was come near, he asked him,
Luke 18:41 Saying, What wilt thou that I shall do unto thee? And he said,
Lord, that I may receive my sight.
Luke 18:42 And Jesus said unto him, Receive thy sight: thy faith hath saved
Luke 18:43 And immediately he received his sight, and followed him,
glorifying God: and all the people, when they saw it, gave praise unto God.
Luke 19:1 And Jesus entered and passed through Jericho.
Luke 19:2 And, behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus, which was the chief
among the publicans, and he was rich.
Luke 19:3 And he sought to see Jesus who he was; and could not for the
press, because he was little of stature.
Luke 19:4 And he ran before, and climbed up into a sycamore tree to see him:
for he was to pass that way.
Luke 19:5 And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up, and saw him, and
said unto him, Zacchaeus, make haste, and come down; for to day I must abide
at thy house.
Luke 19:6 And he made haste, and came down, and received him joyfully.
Luke 19:7 And when they saw it, they all murmured, saying, That he was gone
to be guest with a man that is a sinner.
Luke 19:8 And Zacchaeus stood, and said unto the Lord; Behold, Lord, the
half of my goods I give to the poor; and if I have taken any thing from any
man by false accusation, I restore him fourfold.
Luke 19:9 And Jesus said unto him, This day is salvation come to this house,
forsomuch as he also is a son of Abraham.
Luke 19:10 For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was
Luke 19:11 And as they heard these things, he added and spake a parable,
because he was nigh to Jerusalem, and because they thought that the kingdom of
God should immediately appear.
Luke 19:12 He said therefore, A certain nobleman went into a far country to
receive for himself a kingdom, and to return.
Luke 19:13 And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds,
and said unto them, Occupy till I come.
Luke 19:14 But his citizens hated him, and sent a message after him, saying,
We will not have this man to reign over us.
Luke 19:15 And it came to pass, that when he was returned, having received
the kingdom, then he commanded these servants to be called unto him, to whom
he had given the money, that he might know how much every man had gained by
Luke 19:16 Then came the first, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained ten
Luke 19:17 And he said unto him, Well, thou good servant: because thou hast
been faithful in a very little, have thou authority over ten cities.
Luke 19:18 And the second came, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained five
Luke 19:19 And he said likewise to him, Be thou also over five cities.
Luke 19:20 And another came, saying, Lord, behold, here is thy pound, which
I have kept laid up in a napkin:
Luke 19:21 For I feared thee, because thou art an austere man: thou takest
up that thou layedst not down, and reapest that thou didst not sow.
Luke 19:22 And he saith unto him, Out of thine own mouth will I judge thee,
thou wicked servant. Thou knewest that I was an austere man, taking up that I
laid not down, and reaping that I did not sow:
Luke 19:23 Wherefore then gavest not thou my money into the bank, that at my
coming I might have required mine own with usury?
Luke 19:24 And he said unto them that stood by, Take from him the pound, and
give it to him that hath ten pounds.
Luke 19:25 (And they said unto him, Lord, he hath ten pounds.)
Luke 19:26 For I say unto you, That unto every one which hath shall be
given; and from him that hath not, even that he hath shall be taken away from
Luke 19:27 But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over
them, bring hither, and slay them before me.
Luke 19:28 And when he had thus spoken, he went before, ascending up to
Luke 19:29 And it came to pass, when he was come nigh to Bethphage and
Bethany, at the mount called the mount of Olives, he sent two of his
Luke 19:30 Saying, Go ye into the village over against you; in the which at
your entering ye shall find a colt tied, whereon yet never man sat: loose him,
and bring him hither.
Luke 19:31 And if any man ask you, Why do ye loose him? thus shall ye say
unto him, Because the Lord hath need of him.
Luke 19:32 And they that were sent went their way, and found even as he had
said unto them.
Luke 19:33 And as they were loosing the colt, the owners thereof said unto
them, Why loose ye the colt?
Luke 19:34 And they said, The Lord hath need of him.
Luke 19:35 And they brought him to Jesus: and they cast their garments upon
the colt, and they set Jesus thereon.
Luke 19:36 And as he went, they spread their clothes in the way.
Luke 19:37 And when he was come nigh, even now at the descent of the mount
of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise
God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had seen;
Luke 19:38 Saying, Blessed be the King that cometh in the name of the Lord:
peace in heaven, and glory in the highest.
Luke 19:39 And some of the Pharisees from among the multitude said unto him,
Master, rebuke thy disciples.
Luke 19:40 And he answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these
should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out.
Luke 19:41 And when he was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it,
Luke 19:42 Saying, If thou hadst known, even thou, at least in this thy day,
the things which belong unto thy peace! but now they are hid from thine eyes.
Luke 19:43 For the days shall come upon thee, that thine enemies shall cast
a trench about thee, and compass thee round, and keep thee in on every side,
Luke 19:44 And shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within
thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another; because thou
knewest not the time of thy visitation.
Luke 19:45 And he went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold
therein, and them that bought;
Luke 19:46 Saying unto them, It is written, My house is the house of prayer:
but ye have made it a den of thieves.
Luke 19:47 And he taught daily in the temple. But the chief priests and the
scribes and the chief of the people sought to destroy him,
Luke 19:48 And could not find what they might do: for all the people were
very attentive to hear him.
Luke 20:1 And it came to pass, that on one of those days, as he taught the
people in the temple, and preached the gospel, the chief priests and the
scribes came upon him with the elders,
Luke 20:2 And spake unto him, saying, Tell us, by what authority doest thou
these things? or who is he that gave thee this authority?
Luke 20:3 And he answered and said unto them, I will also ask you one thing;
and answer me:
Luke 20:4 The baptism of John, was it from heaven, or of men?
Luke 20:5 And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say, From
heaven; he will say, Why then believed ye him not?
Luke 20:6 But and if we say, Of men; all the people will stone us: for they
be persuaded that John was a prophet.
Luke 20:7 And they answered, that they could not tell whence it was.
Luke 20:8 And Jesus said unto them, Neither tell I you by what authority I
do these things.
Luke 20:9 Then began he to speak to the people this parable; A certain man
planted a vineyard, and let it forth to husbandmen, and went into a far
country for a long time.
Luke 20:10 And at the season he sent a servant to the husbandmen, that they
should give him of the fruit of the vineyard: but the husbandmen beat him, and
sent him away empty.
Luke 20:11 And again he sent another servant: and they beat him also, and
entreated him shamefully, and sent him away empty.
Luke 20:12 And again he sent a third: and they wounded him also, and cast him
Luke 20:13 Then said the lord of the vineyard, What shall I do? I will send
my beloved son: it may be they will reverence him when they see him.
Luke 20:14 But when the husbandmen saw him, they reasoned among themselves,
saying, This is the heir: come, let us kill him, that the inheritance may be
Luke 20:15 So they cast him out of the vineyard, and killed him. What
therefore shall the lord of the vineyard do unto them?
Luke 20:16 He shall come and destroy these husbandmen, and shall give the
vineyard to others. And when they heard it, they said, God forbid.
Luke 20:17 And he beheld them, and said, What is this then that is written,
The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the
Luke 20:18 Whosoever shall fall upon that stone shall be broken; but on
whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.
Luke 20:19 And the chief priests and the scribes the same hour sought to lay
hands on him; and they feared the people: for they perceived that he had
spoken this parable against them.
Luke 20:20 And they watched him, and sent forth spies, which should feign
themselves just men, that they might take hold of his words, that so they
might deliver him unto the power and authority of the governor.
Luke 20:21 And they asked him, saying, Master, we know that thou sayest and
teachest rightly, neither acceptest thou the person of any, but teachest the
way of God truly:
Luke 20:22 Is it lawful for us to give tribute unto Caesar, or no?
Luke 20:23 But he perceived their craftiness, and said unto them, Why tempt
Luke 20:24 Show me a penny. Whose image and superscription hath it? They
answered and said, Caesar's.
Luke 20:25 And he said unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things
which be Caesar's, and unto God the things which be God's.
Luke 20:26 And they could not take hold of his words before the people: and
they marvelled at his answer, and held their peace.
Luke 20:27 Then came to him certain of the Sadducees, which deny that there
is any resurrection; and they asked him,
Luke 20:28 Saying, Master, Moses wrote unto us, If any man's brother die,
having a wife, and he die without children, that his brother should take his
wife, and raise up seed unto his brother.
Luke 20:29 There were therefore seven brethren: and the first took a wife,
and died without children.
Luke 20:30 And the second took her to wife, and he died childless.
Luke 20:31 And the third took her; and in like manner the seven also: and
they left no children, and died.
Luke 20:32 Last of all the woman died also.
Luke 20:33 Therefore in the resurrection whose wife of them is she? for
seven had her to wife.
Luke 20:34 And Jesus answering said unto them, The children of this world
marry, and are given in marriage:
Luke 20:35 But they which shall be accounted worthy to obtain that world,
and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage:
Luke 20:36 Neither can they die any more: for they are equal unto the
angels; and are the children of God, being the children of the resurrection.
Luke 20:37 Now that the dead are raised, even Moses showed at the bush, when
he calleth the Lord the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of
Luke 20:38 For he is not a God of the dead, but of the living: for all live
Luke 20:39 Then certain of the scribes answering said, Master, thou hast
Luke 20:40 And after that they durst not ask him any question at all.
Luke 20:41 And he said unto them, How say they that Christ is David's son?
Luke 20:42 And David himself saith in the book of Psalms, The Lord said unto
my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand,
Luke 20:43 Till I make thine enemies thy footstool.
Luke 20:44 David therefore calleth him Lord, how is he then his son?
Luke 20:45 Then in the audience of all the people he said unto his
Luke 20:46 Beware of the scribes, which desire to walk in long robes, and
love greetings in the markets, and the highest seats in the synagogues, and
the chief rooms at feasts;
Luke 20:47 Which devour widows' houses, and for a show make long prayers:
the same shall receive greater damnation.
Luke 21:1 And he looked up, and saw the rich men casting their gifts into
Luke 21:2 And he saw also a certain poor widow casting in thither two mites.
Luke 21:3 And he said, Of a truth I say unto you, that this poor widow hath
cast in more than they all:
Luke 21:4 For all these have of their abundance cast in unto the offerings
of God: but she of her penury hath cast in all the living that she had.
Luke 21:5 And as some spake of the temple, how it was adorned with goodly
stones and gifts, he said,
Luke 21:6 As for these things which ye behold, the days will come, in the
which there shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown
Luke 21:7 And they asked him, saying, Master, but when shall these things
be? and what sign will there be when these things shall come to pass?
Luke 21:8 And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall
come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and the time draweth near: go ye not
therefore after them.
Luke 21:9 But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified:
for these things must first come to pass; but the end is not by and by.
Luke 21:10 Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and
kingdom against kingdom:
Luke 21:11 And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and
pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.
Luke 21:12 But before all these, they shall lay their hands on you, and
persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues, and into prisons, being
brought before kings and rulers for my name's sake.
Luke 21:13 And it shall turn to you for a testimony.
Luke 21:14 Settle it therefore in your hearts, not to meditate before what
ye shall answer:
Luke 21:15 For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your
adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.
Luke 21:16 And ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and
kinsfolks, and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death.
Luke 21:17 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake.
Luke 21:18 But there shall not an hair of your head perish.
Luke 21:19 In your patience possess ye your souls.
Luke 21:20 And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know
that the desolation thereof is nigh.
Luke 21:21 Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let
them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the
countries enter thereinto.
Luke 21:22 For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are
written may be fulfilled.
Luke 21:23 But woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give
suck, in those days! for there shall be great distress in the land, and wrath
upon this people.
Luke 21:24 And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led
away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the
Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.
Luke 21:25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the
stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and
the waves roaring;
Luke 21:26 Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those
things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be
Luke 21:27 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with
power and great glory.
Luke 21:28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and
lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.
Luke 21:29 And he spake to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all the
Luke 21:30 When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves
that summer is now nigh at hand.
Luke 21:31 So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye
that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand.
Luke 21:32 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till
all be fulfilled.
Luke 21:33 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass
Luke 21:34 And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be
overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so
that day come upon you unawares.
Luke 21:35 For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face
of the whole earth.
Luke 21:36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted
worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before
the Son of man.
Luke 21:37 And in the day time he was teaching in the temple; and at night
he went out, and abode in the mount that is called the mount of Olives.
Luke 21:38 And all the people came early in the morning to him in the
temple, for to hear him.
Luke 22:1 Now the feast of unleavened bread drew nigh, which is called the
Luke 22:2 And the chief priests and scribes sought how they might kill him;
for they feared the people.
Luke 22:3 Then entered Satan into Judas surnamed Iscariot, being of the
number of the twelve.
Luke 22:4 And he went his way, and communed with the chief priests and
captains, how he might betray him unto them.
Luke 22:5 And they were glad, and covenanted to give him money.
Luke 22:6 And he promised, and sought opportunity to betray him unto them in
the absence of the multitude.
Luke 22:7 Then came the day of unleavened bread, when the passover must be
Luke 22:8 And he sent Peter and John, saying, Go and prepare us the
passover, that we may eat.
Luke 22:9 And they said unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare?
Luke 22:10 And he said unto them, Behold, when ye are entered into the city,
there shall a man meet you, bearing a pitcher of water; follow him into the
house where he entereth in.
Luke 22:11 And ye shall say unto the goodman of the house, The Master saith
unto thee, Where is the guestchamber, where I shall eat the passover with my
Luke 22:12 And he shall show you a large upper room furnished: there make
Luke 22:13 And they went, and found as he had said unto them: and they made
ready the passover.
Luke 22:14 And when the hour was come, he sat down, and the twelve apostles
Luke 22:15 And he said unto them, With desire I have desired to eat this
passover with you before I suffer:
Luke 22:16 For I say unto you, I will not any more eat thereof, until it be
fulfilled in the kingdom of God.
Luke 22:17 And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and said, Take this, and
divide it among yourselves:
Luke 22:18 For I say unto you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine,
until the kingdom of God shall come.
Luke 22:19 And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto
them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance
Luke 22:20 Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new
testament in my blood, which is shed for you.
Luke 22:21 But, behold, the hand of him that betrayeth me is with me on the
Luke 22:22 And truly the Son of man goeth, as it was determined: but woe
unto that man by whom he is betrayed!
Luke 22:23 And they began to inquire among themselves, which of them it was
that should do this thing.
Luke 22:24 And there was also a strife among them, which of them should be
accounted the greatest.
Luke 22:25 And he said unto them, The kings of the Gentiles exercise
lordship over them; and they that exercise authority upon them are called
Luke 22:26 But ye shall not be so: but he that is greatest among you, let
him be as the younger; and he that is chief, as he that doth serve.
Luke 22:27 For whether is greater, he that sitteth at meat, or he that
serveth? is not he that sitteth at meat? but I am among you as he that
Luke 22:28 Ye are they which have continued with me in my temptations.
Luke 22:29 And I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my Father hath appointed
Luke 22:30 That ye may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit on
thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
Luke 22:31 And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to
have you, that he may sift you as wheat:
Luke 22:32 But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when
thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.
Luke 22:33 And he said unto him, Lord, I am ready to go with thee, both into
prison, and to death.
Luke 22:34 And he said, I tell thee, Peter, the cock shall not crow this
day, before that thou shalt thrice deny that thou knowest me.
Luke 22:35 And he said unto them, When I sent you without purse, and scrip,
and shoes, lacked ye any thing? And they said, Nothing.
Luke 22:36 Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him
take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his
garment, and buy one.
Luke 22:37 For I say unto you, that this that is written must yet be
accomplished in me, And he was reckoned among the transgressors: for the
things concerning me have an end.
Luke 22:38 And they said, Lord, behold, here are two swords. And he said
unto them, It is enough.
Luke 22:39 And he came out, and went, as he was wont, to the mount of
Olives; and his disciples also followed him.
Luke 22:40 And when he was at the place, he said unto them, Pray that ye
enter not into temptation.
Luke 22:41 And he was withdrawn from them about a stone's cast, and kneeled
down, and prayed,
Luke 22:42 Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me:
nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.
Luke 22:43 And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening
Luke 22:44 And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was
as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground.
Luke 22:45 And when he rose up from prayer, and was come to his disciples,
he found them sleeping for sorrow,
Luke 22:46 And said unto them, Why sleep ye? rise and pray, lest ye enter
Luke 22:47 And while he yet spake, behold a multitude, and he that was
called Judas, one of the twelve, went before them, and drew near unto Jesus to
Luke 22:48 But Jesus said unto him, Judas, betrayest thou the Son of man
with a kiss?
Luke 22:49 When they which were about him saw what would follow, they said
unto him, Lord, shall we smite with the sword?
Luke 22:50 And one of them smote the servant of the high priest, and cut off
his right ear.
Luke 22:51 And Jesus answered and said, Suffer ye thus far. And he touched
his ear, and healed him.
Luke 22:52 Then Jesus said unto the chief priests, and captains of the
temple, and the elders, which were come to him, Be ye come out, as against a
thief, with swords and staves?
Luke 22:53 When I was daily with you in the temple, ye stretched forth no
hands against me: but this is your hour, and the power of darkness.
Luke 22:54 Then took they him, and led him, and brought him into the high
priest's house. And Peter followed afar off.
Luke 22:55 And when they had kindled a fire in the midst of the hall, and
were set down together, Peter sat down among them.
Luke 22:56 But a certain maid beheld him as he sat by the fire, and
earnestly looked upon him, and said, This man was also with him.
Luke 22:57 And he denied him, saying, Woman, I know him not.
Luke 22:58 And after a little while another saw him, and said, Thou art also
of them. And Peter said, Man, I am not.
Luke 22:59 And about the space of one hour after another confidently
affirmed, saying, Of a truth this fellow also was with him: for he is a
Luke 22:60 And Peter said, Man, I know not what thou sayest. And
immediately, while he yet spake, the cock crew.
Luke 22:61 And the Lord turned, and looked upon Peter. And Peter remembered
the word of the Lord, how he had said unto him, Before the cock crow, thou
shalt deny me thrice.
Luke 22:62 And Peter went out, and wept bitterly.
Luke 22:63 And the men that held Jesus mocked him, and smote him.
Luke 22:64 And when they had blindfolded him, they struck him on the face,
and asked him, saying, Prophesy, who is it that smote thee?
Luke 22:65 And many other things blasphemously spake they against him.
Luke 22:66 And as soon as it was day, the elders of the people and the chief
priests and the scribes came together, and led him into their council, saying,
Luke 22:67 Art thou the Christ? tell us. And he said unto them, If I tell
you, ye will not believe:
Luke 22:68 And if I also ask you, ye will not answer me, nor let me go.
Luke 22:69 Hereafter shall the Son of man sit on the right hand of the power
Luke 22:70 Then said they all, Art thou then the Son of God? And he said
unto them, Ye say that I am.
Luke 22:71 And they said, What need we any further witness? for we ourselves
have heard of his own mouth.
Luke 23:1 And the whole multitude of them arose, and led him unto Pilate.
Luke 23:2 And they began to accuse him, saying, We found this fellow
perverting the nation, and forbidding to give tribute to Caesar, saying that
he himself is Christ a King.
Luke 23:3 And Pilate asked him, saying, Art thou the King of the Jews? And
he answered him and said, Thou sayest it.
Luke 23:4 Then said Pilate to the chief priests and to the people, I find no
fault in this man.
Luke 23:5 And they were the more fierce, saying, He stirreth up the people,
teaching throughout all Jewry, beginning from Galilee to this place.
Luke 23:6 When Pilate heard of Galilee, he asked whether the man were a
Luke 23:7 And as soon as he knew that he belonged unto Herod's jurisdiction,
he sent him to Herod, who himself also was at Jerusalem at that time.
Luke 23:8 And when Herod saw Jesus, he was exceeding glad: for he was
desirous to see him of a long season, because he had heard many things of him;
and he hoped to have seen some miracle done by him.
Luke 23:9 Then he questioned with him in many words; but he answered him
Luke 23:10 And the chief priests and scribes stood and vehemently accused
Luke 23:11 And Herod with his men of war set him at nought, and mocked him,
and arrayed him in a gorgeous robe, and sent him again to Pilate.
Luke 23:12 And the same day Pilate and Herod were made friends together: for
before they were at enmity between themselves.
Luke 23:13 And Pilate, when he had called together the chief priests and the
rulers and the people,
Luke 23:14 Said unto them, Ye have brought this man unto me, as one that
perverteth the people: and, behold, I, having examined him before you, have
found no fault in this man touching those things whereof ye accuse him:
Luke 23:15 No, nor yet Herod: for I sent you to him; and, lo, nothing worthy
of death is done unto him.
Luke 23:16 I will therefore chastise him, and release him.
Luke 23:17 (For of necessity he must release one unto them at the feast.)
Luke 23:18 And they cried out all at once, saying, Away with this man, and
release unto us Barabbas:
Luke 23:19 (Who for a certain sedition made in the city, and for murder, was
cast into prison.)
Luke 23:20 Pilate therefore, willing to release Jesus, spake again to them.
Luke 23:21 But they cried, saying, Crucify him, crucify him.
Luke 23:22 And he said unto them the third time, Why, what evil hath he
done? I have found no cause of death in him: I will therefore chastise him,
and let him go.
Luke 23:23 And they were instant with loud voices, requiring that he might
be crucified. And the voices of them and of the chief priests prevailed.
Luke 23:24 And Pilate gave sentence that it should be as they required.
Luke 23:25 And he released unto them him that for sedition and murder was
cast into prison, whom they had desired; but he delivered Jesus to their will.
Luke 23:26 And as they led him away, they laid hold upon one Simon, a
Cyrenian, coming out of the country, and on him they laid the cross, that he
might bear it after Jesus.
Luke 23:27 And there followed him a great company of people, and of women,
which also bewailed and lamented him.
Luke 23:28 But Jesus turning unto them said, Daughters of Jerusalem, weep
not for me, but weep for yourselves, and for your children.
Luke 23:29 For, behold, the days are coming, in the which they shall say,
Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bare, and the paps which
never gave suck.
Luke 23:30 Then shall they begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us; and to
the hills, Cover us.
Luke 23:31 For if they do these things in a green tree, what shall be done
in the dry?
Luke 23:32 And there were also two other, malefactors, led with him to be
put to death.
Luke 23:33 And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary,
there they crucified him, and the malefactors, one on the right hand, and the
other on the left.
Luke 23:34 Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what
they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.
Luke 23:35 And the people stood beholding. And the rulers also with them
derided him, saying, He saved others; let him save himself, if he be Christ,
the chosen of God.
Luke 23:36 And the soldiers also mocked him, coming to him, and offering him
Luke 23:37 And saying, If thou be the king of the Jews, save thyself.
Luke 23:38 And a superscription also was written over him in letters of
Greek, and Latin, and Hebrew, THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS.
Luke 23:39 And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him,
saying, If thou be Christ, save thyself and us.
Luke 23:40 But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear
God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation?
Luke 23:41 And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds:
but this man hath done nothing amiss.
Luke 23:42 And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into
Luke 23:43 And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt
thou be with me in paradise.
Luke 23:44 And it was about the sixth hour, and there was a darkness over
all the earth until the ninth hour.
Luke 23:45 And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in
Luke 23:46 And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into
thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost.
Luke 23:47 Now when the centurion saw what was done, he glorified God,
saying, Certainly this was a righteous man.
Luke 23:48 And all the people that came together to that sight, beholding
the things which were done, smote their breasts, and returned.
Luke 23:49 And all his acquaintance, and the women that followed him from
Galilee, stood afar off, beholding these things.
