The world cannot hate you, but (A)it hates me because I testify about it that (B)its works are evil. You go up to the feast. I am not[a] going up to this feast, for (C)my time has not yet fully come.” After saying this, he remained in Galilee.

A Samaritan Village Rejects Jesus

51 When the days drew near for (A)him to be taken up, (B)he set his face (C)to go to Jerusalem. 52 And (D)he sent messengers ahead of him, who went and entered a village of (E)the Samaritans, to make preparations for him. 53 But (F)the people did not receive him, because (G)his face was set toward Jerusalem. 54 And when his disciples James and John saw it, they said, “Lord, do you want us to tell (H)fire to come down from heaven and consume them?”[a] 55 But he turned and rebuked them.[b] 56 And they went on to another village.

The Cost of Following Jesus

57 As they were going (I)along the road, (J)someone said to him, “I will follow you wherever you go.” 58 And Jesus said to him, “Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay his head.” 59 To another he said, “Follow me.” But he said, “Lord, let me first go and bury my father.” 60 And Jesus[c] said to him, “Leave (K)the dead to bury their own dead. But as for you, go and (L)proclaim the kingdom of God.” 61 Yet another said, “I will follow you, Lord, (M)but let me first say farewell to those at my home.” 62 Jesus said to him, (N)“No one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back is fit for the kingdom of God.”
