since indeed God considers it (A)just (B)to repay with affliction those who afflict you, and to grant (C)relief to you who are afflicted as well as to us, when (D)the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven (E)with his mighty angels (F)in flaming fire, inflicting vengeance on those (G)who do not know God and on those who (H)do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus.

The Parable of the Persistent Widow

18 And he told them a parable to the effect that they ought (A)always to pray and not (B)lose heart. He said, “In a certain city there was a judge who (C)neither feared God nor respected man. And there was a widow in that city who kept coming to him and saying, ‘Give me justice against my adversary.’ For a while he refused, but afterward he said to himself, (D)‘Though I neither fear God nor respect man, yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will give her justice, so that she will not beat me down by her continual coming.’” And the Lord said, “Hear what the unrighteous judge says. And (E)will not God give justice to (F)his elect, (G)who cry to him day and night? (H)(I)Will he delay long over them? I tell you, he will give justice to them (J)speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, (K)will he find faith on earth?”

Woe to Unrepentant Cities

20 (A)Then he began to denounce the cities where most of his mighty works had been done, because they did not repent. 21 (B)“Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the mighty works done in you had been done in (C)Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes. 22 (D)But I tell you, it will be more bearable on (E)the day of judgment for (F)Tyre and Sidon than for you. 23 And you, (G)Capernaum, will you be exalted to heaven? You will be brought down to (H)Hades. For if the mighty works done in you had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day. 24 (I)But I tell you that (J)it will be more tolerable on (K)the day of judgment for the land of Sodom than for you.”

Or do you presume on (A)the riches of his kindness and (B)forbearance and (C)patience, (D)not knowing that God's kindness is meant to lead you to repentance? But because of your hard and impenitent heart you are (E)storing up (F)wrath for yourself on the day of wrath when God's righteous judgment will be revealed.

And all the churches will know that I am he (B)who searches mind and heart, and (C)I will give to each of you according to your works.

Rejoicing in Heaven

19 After this I heard (A)what seemed to be the loud voice of a great multitude in heaven, crying out,

“Hallelujah!
(B)Salvation and glory and power belong to our God,
    for (C)his judgments are true and just;
for he has judged (D)the great prostitute
    who corrupted the earth with her immorality,
and (E)has avenged on her the blood of his servants.”

Once more they cried out,

“Hallelujah!
(F)The smoke from her goes up forever and ever.”

And (G)the twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshiped God who was seated on the throne, saying, “Amen. Hallelujah!”
