Luke 8 Maori Bible (MAORI)
8 A muri tata iho ka haereere ano ia ki nga pa ki nga kainga, ka kauwhau, ka whakapuaki i te rongopai o te rangatiratanga o te Atua: i a ia hoki te tekau ma rua,
2 Me etahi wahine kua oti nei te whakaora i nga wairua kino, i nga ngoikoretanga, ko Meri, e huaina ana ko Makarini, e whitu nei nga rewera i puta mai i roto i a ia,
3 Ko Hoana hoki, ko te wahine a Kuha, a te kaiwhakahauhau a Herora, me Huhana, me te tokomaha noa atu; na ratou i mahi etahi o a ratou taonga hei mea ma ratou.
4 Na, ka rahi te hui i mine mai, a ka haere mai ki a ia o ia pa, o ia pa, ka korero kupu whakarite ia:
5 I haere atu te kairui ki te rui i tana purapura: a, i a ia e rui ana, ka ngahoro etahi ki te taha o te ara; a takahia ana ki raro, kainga ake e nga manu o te rangi.
6 Ko etahi i ngahoro ki runga ki te toka; ko te tupunga ake, kua maroke, kahore hoki he makuku.
7 Ko etahi i ngahoro ki roto ki nga tataramoa; a tupu tahi ana nga tataramoa, kowaowaotia iho.
8 Ko etahi i ngahoro ki te oneone pai; tupu ana, tatakirau nga hua. Ka mutu enei korero, ka karanga ia, Ko ia he taringa ona hei whakarongo, kia rongo ia.
9 Na ka ui ana akonga ki a ia, ka mea, he aha te tikanga o tenei kupu whakarite?
10 Ka mea ia, Kua hoatu ki a koutou te matauranga ki nga mea ngaro o te rangatiratanga o te Atua: ki era atu ia, he whakarite nga kupu: kia kite ai ratou, a e kore e kite, kia rongo ai, a kore ake e matau.
11 Na, tenei te kupu whakarite: Ko te purapura ko te kupu a te Atua.
12 Ko era i te huarahi, ko nga kaiwhakarongo; me i reira ka haere mai te rewera, ka kapo i te kupu i roto i o ratou ngakau, kei whakapono ratou, a ka ora.
13 Ko era i runga i te toka ko te hunga i tango i te kupu me te hari ano i to ratou rongonga; otira kahore o ratou pakiaka, ka whakapono mo te wa poto nei, a i te wa o te whakamatautau ka taka atu.
14 Ko tera i ngahoro ki roto ki nga tataramoa, ko te hunga e whakarongo ana, a, ko te haerenga atu, ka kowaowaotia e nga manukanuka, e nga taonga, e nga whakaahuareka o te ao, a hore ake e pakari o ratou hua.
15 Ko tera i te oneone pai, ko te hunga e tika ana, e pai ana te ngakau, i te rongonga i te kupu, ka pupuri, a hua ana nga hua i runga i te manawanui.
16 E kore e tahuna te rama e tetahi, e hipokina ki te oko, e waiho ranei i raro i te moenga; engari ka whakaturia ki runga ki te turanga, kia kitea ai te marama e te hunga e tomo ana.
17 E kore hoki tetahi mea i huna, e mahue te whakakite; e kore ano tetahi mea i ngaro, e mahue te mohio, te puta hoki ki te marama.
18 Na reira kia tupato ta koutou whakarongo: ki te whai mea hoki tetahi, ka hoatu ano ki a ia; ki te kahore he mea a tetahi, ko te mea i mahara ai ia nana ake, ka tangohia i a ia.
19 Na ka haere mai ki a ia tona whaea me ona teina, otira kahore ratou i ahei te tutuki mai ki a ia, i te pipiri o te tangata.
20 Na ka korerotia ki a ia, Ko tou whaea me ou teina te tu mai nei i waho, e mea ana kia kite i a koe.
21 Otira ka whakahoki ia, ka mea ki a ratou, Ko enei, e whakarongo nei, a e mahi nei i te kupu a te Atua, toku whaea me oku teina.
22 Na i tetahi o aua ra ka eke ia, ratou ko ana akonga ki te kaipuke: a ka mea ia ki a ratou, Tatou ka whakawhiti ki tawahi o te roto. Na rere ana ratou.
23 Otira i a ratou e rere ana, ka moe ia: na ko te putanga o tetahi hau, he tupuhi, ki te roto; a ka tomo ratou, tata pu te totohu.
24 Na ka haere ratou, ka whakaara i a ia, ka mea, E kara, e kara, ka mate tatou. Na ka ara ia, a riria ana e ia te hau, me te ngaru o te moana: a mutu iho, na kua marino.
25 Na ka mea ia ki a ratou, Kei hea to koutou whakapono? Mataku ana ratou, miharo ana, ka mea ki a ratou ano, Ko wai ra tenei, ka tapa nei ki nga hau, ki te moana, a rongo rawa ki a ia?
26 na ka tae ratou ki te whenua o nga Kararini, ki tawahi atu o Kariri.
27 A, no tona haerenga atu ki uta, ka tutaki ki a ia he tangata no te pa, he rewera ona, he roa kahore ano i mau kakahu, kihai ano i noho i roto i te whare, engari ki nga urupa.
28 A, i tona kitenga i a Ihu, ka karanga, ka takoto ki tona aroaro, he nui tona reo ki te mea, he aha taku ki a koe e Ihu, e te Tama a te Atua, a te Runga Rawa? E, kaua ra ahau e whakamamaetia.
29 I mea hoki ia ki te wairua poke kia puta i taua tangata. He maha hoki nga wa i hopukia ai ia e ia; e tiakina ana hoki ia, he mea here ki nga mekameka, ki nga here waewae; heoi motumotuhia ana e ia nga here, a aia ana ia e te rewera ki te koraha.
30 Na ka ui a Ihu ki a ia, Ko wai tou ingoa? Ka mea ia, Ko Rihiona; he tokomaha hoki nga rewera i tomo ki roto ki a ia.
31 Katahi ka inoi ratou ki a ia kia kaua ratou e tonoa e ia kia haere ki te hohonu.
32 Na i reira tetahi kahui poaka maha e kai ana i runga i te maunga: a ka inoi ratou ki a ia kia tukua ratou kia tomo ki aua poaka. A tukua ana ratou.
33 A, ko te putanga o aua rewera i roto i te tangata, ka tomo ki roto ki nga poaka: na ko te tino rerenga o te kahui ra te pari ki te moana, a paremo iho.
34 A, no ka kite nga kaiwhangai i taua mea i meatia, ka whati, ka haere ka korero ki te pa, ki aua whenua hoki.
35 Na ka haere ratou kia kite i taua mea i meatia; a, i to ratou taenga mai ki a Ihu, ka kite i te tangata i puta nei nga rewera i roto i a ia, kua oti te whakakakahu, kua tika ona whakaaro, e noho ana i nga waewae o Ihu: a ka mataku ratou.
36 A, korerotia ana ki a ratou e te hunga i kite, te whakaoranga o te tangata i nga rewera.
37 Na ka mea te huihui katoa o nga kainga patata o nga Kararini kia mawehe atu ia i a ratou; i mataku whakaharahara hoki ratou: a eke ana ia ki te kaipuke, hoki ana.
38 Otira ka inoi ki a ia te tangata i puta ra nga rewera i roto i a ia, kia waiho ia hei hoa mona: heoi ka tono atu a Ihu i a ia, ka mea,
39 Hoki atu ki tou whare, korerotia nga mea nui kua meinga nei e te Atua ki a koe. na haere ana ia, korerotia ana ki te pa katoa nga mea nui i mea ai a Ihu ki a ia.
40 A, i a Ihu i hoki ai, ka koa te mano; i te tatari katoa hoki ratou ki a ia.
41 Na ka haere mai tetahi tangata, ko Hairuha te ingoa, he rangatira no te whare karakia; a takoto ana ki nga waewae o Ihu, ka inoi ki a ia kia tomo ki tona whare:
42 Kotahi tana tamahine, he huatahi kei te tekau ma rua ona tau, na, e whakahemohemo ana. Na, i tona haerenga atu, ka popo nga mano ki a ia.
43 Na tera tetahi wahine e mate ana i te pakaruhanga toto, tekau ma rua nga tau, a poto katoa tona oranga ki nga rata, kihai rawa i taea te whakaora e tetahi.
44 Ka haere ia i muri i a ia, ka pa ki te taniko o tona kakahu: a mutu iho te rere o ona toto.
45 Na ka mea a Ihu, Ko wai tenei kua pa nei ki ahau? A, no ka whakakahore katoa, ka mea a Pita ratou ko ona hoa, E kara, e pipiri ana nga mano ki a koe, e tutetute ana, ka mea koe, ko wai e pa ki ahau?
46 Otira i mea a Ihu, Ehara, kua pa tetahi ki ahau: e mohio ana ahau, kua puta atu he mana i ahau.
47 A, no te kitenga o te wahine kihai ia i ngaro, haere wiri ana, takoto ana i tona aroaro, korerotia ana e ia ki a ia i te aroaro o te iwi katoa te take i pa ai ia ki a ia, me te hohoro o tona oranga.
48 Na ka mea ia ki a ia, E ko, na tou whakapono koe i ora ai; haere marie.
49 I a ia ano e korero ana, ka haere mai tetahi i te whare o te rangatira o te whare karakia, ka mea ki a ia, Kua mate tau tamahine; kaua e whakararuraru i te Kaiwhakaako.
50 Otiia, i te rongonga o Ihu, ka whakahoki ki a ia, ka mea, Kaua e mataku: ko te whakapono ia kia whakapono, a ka ora ia.
51 A, i tona tomokanga ki te whare, kihai tetahi i tukua e ia ki tapoko, ko Pita anake, ko Hemi, ko Hoani, me te papa raua ko te whaea o te kotiro.
52 E tangi ana ratou katoa, e aue ana mona. Na ka mea ia, Kaua e tangi; kahore ia i mate, engari e moe ana.
53 A kataina iho ia e ratou, i mohio hoki ratou kua mate ia.
54 Otira ka mau ia ki tona ringa, ka karanga, ka mea, E ko, e ara.
55 Na hoki mai ana tona wairua, a whakatika tonu ake ia: na ka whakahautia e ia kia hoatu he kai mana.
56 A, miharo tonu ona matua: na ka whakatupato ia i a ratou kia kaua e korerotia taua meatanga ki tetahi.
Luke 8 New International Version (NIV)
The Parable of the Sower
8 After this, Jesus traveled about from one town and village to another, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom of God. The Twelve were with him, 2 and also some women who had been cured of evil spirits and diseases: Mary (called Magdalene) from whom seven demons had come out; 3 Joanna the wife of Chuza, the manager of Herod’s household; Susanna; and many others. These women were helping to support them out of their own means.
4 While a large crowd was gathering and people were coming to Jesus from town after town, he told this parable: 5 “A farmer went out to sow his seed. As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path; it was trampled on, and the birds ate it up. 6 Some fell on rocky ground, and when it came up, the plants withered because they had no moisture. 7 Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up with it and choked the plants. 8 Still other seed fell on good soil. It came up and yielded a crop, a hundred times more than was sown.”
When he said this, he called out, “Whoever has ears to hear, let them hear.”
9 His disciples asked him what this parable meant. 10 He said, “The knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of God has been given to you, but to others I speak in parables, so that,
“‘though seeing, they may not see;
11 “This is the meaning of the parable: The seed is the word of God. 12 Those along the path are the ones who hear, and then the devil comes and takes away the word from their hearts, so that they may not believe and be saved. 13 Those on the rocky ground are the ones who receive the word with joy when they hear it, but they have no root. They believe for a while, but in the time of testing they fall away. 14 The seed that fell among thorns stands for those who hear, but as they go on their way they are choked by life’s worries, riches and pleasures, and they do not mature. 15 But the seed on good soil stands for those with a noble and good heart, who hear the word, retain it, and by persevering produce a crop.
A Lamp on a Stand
16 “No one lights a lamp and hides it in a clay jar or puts it under a bed. Instead, they put it on a stand, so that those who come in can see the light. 17 For there is nothing hidden that will not be disclosed, and nothing concealed that will not be known or brought out into the open. 18 Therefore consider carefully how you listen. Whoever has will be given more; whoever does not have, even what they think they have will be taken from them.”
Jesus’ Mother and Brothers
19 Now Jesus’ mother and brothers came to see him, but they were not able to get near him because of the crowd. 20 Someone told him, “Your mother and brothers are standing outside, wanting to see you.”
21 He replied, “My mother and brothers are those who hear God’s word and put it into practice.”
Jesus Calms the Storm
22 One day Jesus said to his disciples, “Let us go over to the other side of the lake.” So they got into a boat and set out. 23 As they sailed, he fell asleep. A squall came down on the lake, so that the boat was being swamped, and they were in great danger.
24 The disciples went and woke him, saying, “Master, Master, we’re going to drown!”
He got up and rebuked the wind and the raging waters; the storm subsided, and all was calm. 25 “Where is your faith?” he asked his disciples.
In fear and amazement they asked one another, “Who is this? He commands even the winds and the water, and they obey him.”
Jesus Restores a Demon-Possessed Man
26 They sailed to the region of the Gerasenes,[b] which is across the lake from Galilee. 27 When Jesus stepped ashore, he was met by a demon-possessed man from the town. For a long time this man had not worn clothes or lived in a house, but had lived in the tombs. 28 When he saw Jesus, he cried out and fell at his feet, shouting at the top of his voice, “What do you want with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I beg you, don’t torture me!” 29 For Jesus had commanded the impure spirit to come out of the man. Many times it had seized him, and though he was chained hand and foot and kept under guard, he had broken his chains and had been driven by the demon into solitary places.
30 Jesus asked him, “What is your name?”
“Legion,” he replied, because many demons had gone into him. 31 And they begged Jesus repeatedly not to order them to go into the Abyss.
32 A large herd of pigs was feeding there on the hillside. The demons begged Jesus to let them go into the pigs, and he gave them permission. 33 When the demons came out of the man, they went into the pigs, and the herd rushed down the steep bank into the lake and was drowned.
34 When those tending the pigs saw what had happened, they ran off and reported this in the town and countryside, 35 and the people went out to see what had happened. When they came to Jesus, they found the man from whom the demons had gone out, sitting at Jesus’ feet, dressed and in his right mind; and they were afraid. 36 Those who had seen it told the people how the demon-possessed man had been cured. 37 Then all the people of the region of the Gerasenes asked Jesus to leave them, because they were overcome with fear. So he got into the boat and left.
38 The man from whom the demons had gone out begged to go with him, but Jesus sent him away, saying, 39 “Return home and tell how much God has done for you.” So the man went away and told all over town how much Jesus had done for him.
Jesus Raises a Dead Girl and Heals a Sick Woman
40 Now when Jesus returned, a crowd welcomed him, for they were all expecting him. 41 Then a man named Jairus, a synagogue leader, came and fell at Jesus’ feet, pleading with him to come to his house 42 because his only daughter, a girl of about twelve, was dying.
As Jesus was on his way, the crowds almost crushed him. 43 And a woman was there who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years,[c] but no one could heal her. 44 She came up behind him and touched the edge of his cloak, and immediately her bleeding stopped.
45 “Who touched me?” Jesus asked.
When they all denied it, Peter said, “Master, the people are crowding and pressing against you.”
46 But Jesus said, “Someone touched me; I know that power has gone out from me.”
47 Then the woman, seeing that she could not go unnoticed, came trembling and fell at his feet. In the presence of all the people, she told why she had touched him and how she had been instantly healed. 48 Then he said to her, “Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace.”
49 While Jesus was still speaking, someone came from the house of Jairus, the synagogue leader. “Your daughter is dead,” he said. “Don’t bother the teacher anymore.”
50 Hearing this, Jesus said to Jairus, “Don’t be afraid; just believe, and she will be healed.”
51 When he arrived at the house of Jairus, he did not let anyone go in with him except Peter, John and James, and the child’s father and mother. 52 Meanwhile, all the people were wailing and mourning for her. “Stop wailing,” Jesus said. “She is not dead but asleep.”
53 They laughed at him, knowing that she was dead. 54 But he took her by the hand and said, “My child, get up!” 55 Her spirit returned, and at once she stood up. Then Jesus told them to give her something to eat. 56 Her parents were astonished, but he ordered them not to tell anyone what had happened.
