Luke 11:1-28 (21st Century King James Version)
21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
11 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.”
2 And He said unto them, “When ye pray, say: Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in Heaven, so on earth.
3 Give us day by day our daily bread.
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.”
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,
6 for a friend of mine in his journey is come to me, and I have nothing to set before him’;
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, and I cannot rise and give to thee’?
8 I say unto you, though he will not rise and give to him because he is his friend, yet because of his importunity he will rise and give him as many as he needeth.
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.
10 For every one that asketh receiveth, and he that seeketh findeth, and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
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?
12 Or if he shall ask for an egg, will he offer him a scorpion?
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?”
14 And He was casting out a devil, and it was dumb. And it came to pass when the devil had gone out, the dumb one spoke; and the people wondered.
15 But some of them said, “He casteth out devils through Beelzebub, the chief of the devils.”
16 And others, testing Him, sought from Him a sign from Heaven.
17 But He, knowing their thoughts, said unto them, “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and a house divided against a house falleth.
18 If Satan also be divided against himself, how shall his kingdom stand — because ye say that I cast out devils through Beelzebub?
19 And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your sons cast them out? Therefore shall they be your judges.
20 But if I with the finger of God cast out devils, doubt not the Kingdom of God is come upon you.
21 When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace.
22 But when one stronger than he shall come upon him and overcome him, he taketh from him all his armor wherein he trusted, and divideth his spoils.
23 He that is not with Me, is against Me; and he that gathereth not with Me, scattereth.
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.’
25 And when he cometh, he findeth it swept and garnished.
26 Then he goeth 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.”
27 And it came to pass, as He spoke these things, a certain woman of the company lifted up her voice and said unto Him, “Blessed is the womb that bore Thee and the breasts which Thou hast sucked.”
28 But He said, “Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the Word of God and keep it.”
