27 And it happened, as He spoke these things, that a certain woman from the crowd raised her voice and said to Him, “Blessed is the womb that bore You, and the breasts which nursed You!”
28 But He said, “More than that, blessed are those who hear the word of God and keep it!”
Seeking a Sign
29 And while the crowds were thickly gathered together, He began to say, “This is an evil generation. It seeks asign, and no sign will be given to it except the sign of Jonah[a]the prophet.30 For asJonah became a sign to the Ninevites, so also the Son of Man will be to this generation.31 The queen of the South will rise up in the judgment with the men of this generation and condemn them, for she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and indeed agreater than Solomon is here.32 The men of Nineveh will rise up in the judgment with this generation and condemn it, forthey repented at the preaching of Jonah; and indeed a greater than Jonah is here.
The Lamp of the Body
33 “No one, when he has lit a lamp, puts it in a secret place or under abasket, but on a lampstand, that those who come in may see the light.34 The lamp of the body is the eye. Therefore, when your eye is[b]good, your whole body also is full of light. But when your eye is[c]bad, your body also is full of darkness.35 Therefore take heed that the light which is in you is not darkness.36 If then your whole body is full of light, having no part dark, the whole body will be full of light, as when the bright shining of a lamp gives you light.”
