The Narrow Door

22 (A)He went on his way through towns and villages, teaching and (B)journeying toward Jerusalem. 23 And someone said to him, “Lord, (C)will those who are saved be few?” And he said to them, 24 (D)“Strive (E)to enter through the narrow door. For many, I tell you, will seek to enter and will not be able. 25 (F)When once the master of the house has risen and shut the door, and you begin to stand outside and to knock at the door, saying, (G)‘Lord, open to us,’ then he will answer you, (H)‘I do not know where you come from.’ 26 Then you will begin to say, (I)‘We ate and drank in your presence, and you taught in our streets.’ 27 But he will say, ‘I tell you, (J)I do not know where you come from. (K)Depart from me, all you workers of evil!’ 28 (L)In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when you see (M)Abraham and Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of God but (N)you yourselves cast out. 29 And (O)people will come from east and west, and from north and south, and (P)recline at table in the kingdom of God. 30 And behold, (Q)some are last who will be first, and some are first who will be last.”

Lament over Jerusalem

31 At that very hour some Pharisees came and said to him, “Get away from (R)here, for (S)Herod wants to kill you.” 32 And he said to them, “Go and tell that fox, ‘Behold, I cast out demons and perform cures today and tomorrow, and the third day (T)I finish my course. 33 Nevertheless, (U)I (V)must go on my way today and tomorrow and the day following, for it cannot be that (W)a prophet should perish away from Jerusalem.’ 34 (X)O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that (Y)kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to it! (Z)How often would I have (AA)gathered (AB)your children together (AC)as a hen gathers her brood (AD)under her wings, and (AE)you were not willing! 35 Behold, (AF)your house is forsaken. And I tell you, you will not see me until you say, (AG)‘Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!’”

Healing of a Man on the Sabbath

14 One Sabbath, (AH)when he went to dine at the house of a ruler of the Pharisees, they were (AI)watching him carefully. And behold, there was a man before him who had dropsy. And Jesus responded to (AJ)the lawyers and Pharisees, saying, (AK)“Is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath, or not?” But they remained silent. Then he took him and healed him and sent him away. And he said to them, (AL)“Which of you, having a son[a] or an ox that has fallen into a well on a Sabbath day, will not immediately pull him out?” (AM)And they could not reply to these things.
