Luke 18:1-8 American Standard Version (ASV)

18 And he spake a parable unto them to the end that they ought always to pray, and not to faint; saying, There was in a city a judge, who feared not God, and regarded not man: and there was a widow in that city; and she came oft unto him, saying, [a]Avenge me of mine adversary. And he would not for a while: but afterward he said within himself, Though I fear not God, nor regard man; yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, [b]lest she [c]wear me out by her continual coming. And the Lord said, Hear what [d]the unrighteous judge saith. And shall not God avenge his elect, that cry to him day and night, [e]and yet he is longsuffering over them? I say unto you, that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of man cometh, shall he find [f]faith on the earth?
