Luke Chapter 13

Luke 13:1 There were present at that season some that told Him of the Galileans, whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices.

Luke 13:2 And Jesus answering said to them, suppose you that these Galileans were sinners above all the Galileans, because they permitted such things?

Luke 13:3 I tell you, No: but, unless you repent, you will all perish in a similar manner.

Luke 13:4 Or those eighteen, upon who the tower in Siloam fell, and killed them, think you that they were sinners above all men that dwelled in Jerusalem?

Luke 13:5 I tell you, No: but, unless you repent, you will all perish in a similar manner.

Luke 13:6 He spoke also this parable; a certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came and sought fruit from it, and found none.

Luke 13:7 Then said he to the man of his vineyard, behold, these three years I came seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none: cut it down; why does it occupy the land?

Luke 13:8 He answered and said to him, Lord, let it alone this year also, until I will dig about it, and fertilize it:

Luke 13:9 and if it bear fruit, well: and if not, then after that you will cut it down.

Luke 13:10 Now 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 bent over, and could in no way raise herself up.

Luke 13:12 But when Jesus saw her, He called her to Him, and said to her, woman, you are loosed from your infirmity.

Luke 13:13 Then He laid His hands on her: and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God.

Luke 13:14 But the ruler of the synagogue answered with indignation, because Jesus had healed on the Sabbath day, and said to the people, There are six days in which men ought to work: Therefore on them come and be healed, and not on the Sabbath day.

Luke 13:15 The Lord then answered him, and said, you hypocrite, does not each one of you on the Sabbath loose his ox or his donkey from the stall, and lead him away to water?

Luke 13:16 And ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, who Satan has bound, look, these eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the Sabbath day?

Luke 13:17 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 to what will I compare 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 became a great tree; and the birds of the air lodged in the branches of it.

Luke 13:20 And again He said, what will I liken the kingdom of God?

Luke 13:21 It is like leaven, which a woman took and hid in three measures of meal, until the whole was leavened.

Luke 13:22 So he went through the cities and villages, teaching, and journeying toward Jerusalem.

Luke 13:23 Then said one to him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And He said to them,

Luke 13:24 Strive to enter in at the narrow gate: for many, I say to you, will seek to enter in, and will not be able.

Luke 13:25 When once the master of the house is risen up, and has shut to the door, and you begin to stand outside, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us; and he will answer and say to you, I know you not, nor from where you are from:

Luke 13:26 Then will you begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in your presence, and you have taught in our streets.

Luke 13:27 But he will say, I tell you, I know you not, nor from where you are; depart from me, all you workers of iniquity.

Luke 13:28 There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when you will see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves cast out.

Luke 13:29 For they will come from the east, and from the west, and from the north, and from the south, and will sit down in the kingdom of God.

Luke 13:30 And, behold, there are last which will be first, and there are first which will be last.

Luke 13:31 The same day there came certain of the Pharisees, saying to Him, Get You out, and depart from here: for Herod will murder You.

Luke 13:32 And He said to them, you go and tell that fox, behold, I cast out demons, and I do healing today and the next day, and the third day I will reach my goal.

Luke 13:33 Nevertheless I must walk today, and the next day, and the day following: for it cannot be that a prophet perish outside of Jerusalem.

Luke 13:34 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, which murder the prophets, and stone them that are sent to you; how often would I have gathered your children together, as a hen does gather her chicks under her wings, and you would not!

Luke 13:35 Behold, your house is left to you desolate: and truthfully I say to you, you will not see Me, until the time comes when you will say, blessed is He that comes in the name of the Lord!
