The Good Samaritan
And, see, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?
He said to him, What is written in the law? How do you read?
And he answering said, You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbour as yourself.
And he said to him, You have answered right: do this, and you shall live.
But he, willing to justify himself, said to Jesus, And who is my neighbour?
And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his clothes, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead.
And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side.
And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side.
But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him,
And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own donkey, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him.
And in the next morning when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said to him, Take care of him; and whatever you spend more, I will repay you when I come again.
Which now of these three, do you think, was neighbour to him that fell among the thieves?
And he said, He that showed mercy on him. Then said Jesus to him, Go, and do likewise.
But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added to you.
Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
You also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.”
"I have come to cast fire upon the earth; and how I wish it were already kindled!
I have a baptism to be baptized with, and how great is my distress until it is accomplished!
"Whoever does not carry his own cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple.
"So then, none of you can be My disciple who does not give up all his own possessions.
Then all the publicans and sinners drew near to him to listen to him.
And the Pharisees and scribes complained, saying, This man receives sinners, and eats with them.
And he spoke this parable to them, saying,
What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, do not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it?
And when he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing.
And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and neighbours, saying to them, Rejoice with me; for I have found my sheep which was lost.
I say to you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repents, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance.
Either what woman having ten pieces of silver, if she lose one piece, does not light a candle, and sweep the house, and seek diligently till she find it?
And when she has found it, she calls her friends and her neighbours together, saying, Rejoice with me; for I have found the piece which I had lost.
Likewise, I say to you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repents.
And he said, A certain man had two sons:
And the younger of them said to his father, Father, give me the portion of goods that will belong to me. And he divided to them his riches.
And not many days after the younger son gathered all together, and took his journey into a country far away, and there wasted his money with sinful living.
And when he had spent all, a severe famine broke out in that land; and he began to be in want.
And he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country; and he sent him into his fields to feed swine.
And he would gladly have filled his stomach with the husks that the swine ate: but no man gave anything to him.
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!
I will arise and go to my father, and will say to him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before you,
And am no more worthy to be called your son: make me as one of your hired servants.
And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion on him, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him.
And the son said to him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in your sight, and am no more worthy to be called your son.
But the father said to his servants, Bring out the finest clothes, and put them on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet:
And bring the fatted calf, and kill it; and let us eat, and be merry:
For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. And they began to be merry.
Now his elder son was in the field: and as he came and drew near to the house, he heard music and dancing.
And he called one of the servants, and asked what these things meant.
And he said to him, Your brother has come; and your father has killed the fatted calf, because he has received him safe and sound.
And he was angry, and would not go in: therefore his father came out, and intreated him.
And he answering said to his father, Listen, these many years I have served you, neither transgressed I at any time your commandment: and yet you never gave me a kid, that I might make merry with my friends:
But as soon as this your son has come, which has devoured your living with harlots, you have killed for him the fatted calf.
And he said to him, Son, you are always with me, and all that I have is yours.
But now we must rejoice and be glad: for this your brother was dead, and is alive again; and was lost, and is found.
No servant can serve two masters
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. You cannot serve God and mammon.
And the Pharisees also, who were covetous, heard all these things: and they derided him.
And he said to them, You are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knows your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God.
The law and the prophets were until John: since that time the kingdom of God is preached, and every man presses into it.
And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass, than one tittle of the law to fail.
Whoever divorces his wife, and marries another, committs adultery: and whoever marries her that divorced from her husband committs adultery.
There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and lived each day in joy and splendor:
And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores,
And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.
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;
And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and sees Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.
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.
But Abraham said, Son, remember that you in your lifetime received your good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and you are tormented.
And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gap: so that they which would pass from here to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from there.
Then he said, I ask you therefore, father, that you would send him to my father's house:
For I have five brothers; that he may testify to them, so that they not also come into this place of torment.
Abraham said to him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.
And he said, No, father Abraham: but if one went to them from the dead, they will repent.
And he said to him, If they don't listen to Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, even if one rose from the dead.
And the apostles said to the Lord, Increase our faith.
Then said he to the disciples, It is inevitable that seductions will come: but woe to him, through whom they come!
It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should seduce one of these little ones.
Take heed to yourselves: If your brother trespass against you, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him.
And if he trespass against you seven times in a day, and seven times in a day turn again to you, saying, I repent; you shall forgive him.
And the apostles said to the Lord, Increase our faith.
And the Lord said, If you had faith as a grain of mustard seed, you might say to this sycamine tree, Be plucked up by the root, and be you planted in the sea; and it should obey you.
If any of you has a servant plowing or feeding cattle, will say unto him, when he is come from the field, Go and sit down to meat?
Does he not rather to him: 'I may sup, and fix so up yourself, and serve me while I eat and drink; then you shall eat and drink?
Does he thank that servant because he did the things that were commanded him? I don't think so.
So likewise you, when you 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.
And it happened, when he went to Jerusalem, that he passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee.
And as he entered into a certain village, ten men that were lepers which stood afar off there met him,:
And they lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.
And when he saw them, he said to them, Go and show yourselves to the priests. And it happened, that, as they went, they were cleansed.
And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God,
And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan.
And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine?
There are not found that returned to give glory to God, except this stranger.
And he said to him, Arise, go your way: your faith has made you whole.
And when he was asked of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God does not come in such way that it can be perceived with the eyes:
Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, see, the kingdom of God is within you.
And he said to the disciples, The days will come, when you shall desire to see one of the days of the Son of man, and you shall not see it.
And they shall say to you, See here he is; or, see there he is: don't go after them, nor follow them.
For as the lightning, that lights out of the one part under heaven, shines to the other part under heaven; so shall also the Son of man be in his day.
But first must he suffer many things, and be rejected of this generation.
And as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.
They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.
Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;
But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.
Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.
In that day, he which shall be on 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.
Remember Lot's wife.
Whoever tries to save his life shall lose it; and whoever loses his life shall preserve it.
I tell you, in that night there shall be two men in one bed; one shall be taken, and the other shall be left.
Two women shall be grinding together; one shall be taken, and the other left.
Two men shall be in the field; one shall be taken, and the other left.
And they answered and said to him, Where, Lord? And he said to them, Where the dead body is, there shall the vultures be gathered together."
And he spoke a parable to them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;
Saying, There was in a city a judge, which didn't fear God, neither regarded any man:
And there was a widow in that city; and she came to him, saying, Vindicate me against my adversary.
And he would not for a while: but afterward he said within himself, Though I fear not God, nor regard man;
Yet because this widow troubles me, I will avenge her, so that she does not torment me to death by her continual coming.
And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge said.
And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night to him, though he bear long with them?
I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man comes, shall he find faith on the earth?
