042:018:001
And he spake a parable unto them to this end,
that men ought always to pray,
and not to faint;


042:018:002
Saying,
There was in a city a judge,
which feared not God,
neither regarded man:


042:018:003
And there was a widow in that city;
and she came unto him,
saying,
Avenge me of mine adversary.


042:018:004
And he would not for a while:
but afterward he said within himself,
Though I fear not God,
nor regard man;


042:018:005
Yet because this widow troubleth me,
I will avenge her,
lest by her continual coming she weary me.


042:018:006
And the Lord said,
Hear what the unjust judge saith.


042:018:007
And shall not God avenge his own elect,
which cry day and night unto him,
though he bear long with them?


042:018:008
I tell you that he will avenge them speedily.
Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh,
shall he find faith on the earth?


042:018:009
And he spake this parable unto certain which trusted in themselves that they were righteous,
and despised others:


042:018:010
Two men went up into the temple to pray;
the one a Pharisee,
and the other a publican.


042:018:011
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.


042:018:012
I fast twice in the week,
I give tithes of all that I possess.


042:018:013
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 a sinner.


042:018:014
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.


042:018:015
And they brought unto him also infants,
that he would touch them:
but when his disciples saw it,
they rebuked them.


042:018:016
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.


042:018:017
Verily I say unto you,
Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein.


042:018:018
And a certain ruler asked him,
saying,
Good Master,
what shall I do to inherit eternal life?


042:018:019
And Jesus said unto him,
Why callest thou me good?
none is good,
save one,
that is,
God.


042:018:020
Thou knowest the commandments,
Do not commit adultery,
Do not kill,
Do not steal,
Do not bear false witness,
Honour thy father and thy mother.


042:018:021
And he said,
All these have I kept from my youth up.


042:018:022
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.


042:018:023
And when he heard this,
he was very sorrowful:
for he was very rich.


042:018:024
And when Jesus saw that he was very sorrowful,
he said,
How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God!


042:018:025
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.


042:018:026
And they that heard it said,
Who then can be saved?


042:018:027
And he said,
The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.


042:018:028
Then Peter said,
Lo,
we have left all,
and followed thee.


042:018:029
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,


042:018:030
Who shall not receive manifold more in this present time,
and in the world to come life everlasting.


042:018:031
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.


042:018:032
For he shall be delivered unto the Gentiles,
and shall be mocked,
and spitefully entreated,
and spitted on:


042:018:033
And they shall scourge him,
and put him to death:
and the third day he shall rise again.


042:018:034
And they understood none of these things:
and this saying was hid from them,
neither knew they the things which were spoken.


042:018:035
And it came to pass,
that as he was come nigh unto Jericho,
a certain blind man sat by the way side begging:


042:018:036
And hearing the multitude pass by,
he asked what it meant.


042:018:037
And they told him,
that Jesus of Nazareth passeth by.


042:018:038
And he cried,
saying,
Jesus,
thou son of David,
have mercy on me.


042:018:039
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.


042:018:040
And Jesus stood,
and commanded him to be brought unto him:
and when he was come near,
he asked him,


042:018:041
Saying,
What wilt thou that I shall do unto thee?
And he said,
Lord,
that I may receive my sight.


042:018:042
And Jesus said unto him,
Receive thy sight:
thy faith hath saved thee.


042:018:043
And immediately he received his sight,
and followed him,
glorifying God:
and all the people,
when they saw it,
gave praise unto God.
