Luke Chapter 6

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 to them, why do You do that which is not lawful to do on the Sabbath days?

Luke 6:3 Then Jesus answered them and said, have you not read so much as this, what David did, when himself being hungry, and they who were with him;

Luke 6:4 how he went into the house of God, and did take and eat the show bread, 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 to them, that the Son of man is Lord also of the Sabbath.

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 So 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 who had the withered hand, rise up, and stand out in the midst. And he arose and stood out.

Luke 6:9 Then said Jesus to 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 Then looking around on them all, He said to the man, stretch out your hand. And he did so: and his hand was restored whole as the other.

Luke 6:11 And they were filled with angry madness; and talked with one another what they might do to Jesus.

Luke 6:12 And it came to pass in those days, that He went out to a mountain to pray and continued all night in prayer to God.

Luke 6:13 When it was day, He called to 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 Zelotes,

Luke 6:16 and Judas the brother of James, and Judas Iscariot, whom also was the traitor.

Luke 6:17 Then 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 Judea and Jerusalem, and from the seacoast of Tyre and Sidon, who came to hear Him, and to be healed of their diseases;

Luke 6:18 and they that were troubled with unclean spirits: and they were healed.

Luke 6:19 For the whole multitude sought to touch Him: for there went power out of Him and healed them all.

Luke 6:20 Then He lifted up His eyes on His disciples, and said, blessed be the poor: for yours is the kingdom of God.

Luke 6:21 Blessed are you that hunger now: for you will be filled. Blessed are you that weep now: for you will laugh.

Luke 6:22 Blessed are you, when men will hate you, and when they will exclude you from their company, and will revile you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man’s sake.

Luke 6:23 Rejoice in that day, and leap for joy! For, behold, your reward is great in heaven: for in the like manner their fathers did to the prophets.

Luke 6:24 But woe to you that are rich! For you have received your comfort.

Luke 6:25 Woe to you that are full! For you will hunger. Woe to you that laugh now! For you will mourn and weep.

Luke 6:26 Woe to you, when all men shall speak well of you! For so their fathers did to the false prophets.

Luke 6:27 But I say to you who hear, love your enemies, do good to them who hate you,

Luke 6:28 bless them that curse you, and pray for them who spitefully use you.

Luke 6:29 And to him that strikes you on the one cheek offer also the other; and him that takes away your cloak forbid not to take your coat also.

Luke 6:30 Give to every man that asks of you; and of him that takes away your goods do not demand them back.

Luke 6:31 And as you would that men should do to you, do you also to them likewise.

Luke 6:32 For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? for sinners also love those that love them.

Luke 6:33 And if you do good to those who do good to you, what reward do you have? For sinners also do even the same.

Luke 6:34 And if you lend to them of whom you hope to receive, what reward do you have? For sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again.

Luke 6:35 But love your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing back; and your reward will be great, and you will be the sons of the Highest: for He is kind even to the unthankful and to the evil.

Luke 6:36 Therefore be merciful as your Father also is merciful.

Luke 6:37 Judge not, and you will not be judged: condemn not, and you will not be condemned: forgive, and you will be forgiven:

Luke 6:38 give, and it will be given to you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, will men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use it will be measured back to you again.

Luke 6:39 And He spoke a parable to them, can the blind lead the blind? Will they not both fall into a pit?

Luke 6:40 The disciple is not above his master: but everyone that is mature will be as his master.

Luke 6:41 And why do you behold the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but perceive not the beam that is in your own eye?

Luke 6:42 Either how can you say to your brother, Brother, let me pull out the splinter that is in your eye, when you yourself behold not the joist that is in your own eye? You hypocrite, take out first the joist out of your own eye, and then will you see clearly to pull out the splinter that is in your brother’s eye.

Luke 6:43 For a good tree does not bring forth bad fruit; neither does a bad tree bring forth good fruit.

Luke 6:44 For every tree is known by its own fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a thorn bush do they gather grapes.

Luke 6:45 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings out that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart brings out that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.

Luke 6:46 And why do you call me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?

Luke 6:47 Whoever comes to Me, and hears My sayings, and does them, I will show you to who he is like:

Luke 6:48 he is like a man which built a house, and dug deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat repeatedly on that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded on a rock.

Luke 6:49 But he that hears, and does not, is like a man that without a foundation built a house on the soil; which the stream did burst against it, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great.
