Luke 14Mounce Reverse-Interlinear New Testament (MOUNCE)
14 · kai When en Jesus autos went erchomai into eis the house oikos of a certain tis · ho ruler archōn of the ho Pharisees Pharisaios on the Sabbath sabbaton to eat esthiō bread artos and kai they autos were eimi watching paratēreō him autos closely, 2 · kai it happened that a certain tis man anthrōpos suffering hydrōpikos from dropsy was eimi right there in front emprosthen of him autos. 3 · kai In response apokrinomai · ho Jesus Iēsous spoke legō to pros the ho lawyers nomikos and kai Pharisees Pharisaios, saying legō, “Is it lawful on the ho Sabbath sabbaton to heal therapeuō, or ē not ou?” 4 But de they ho remained hēsychazō silent . So kai he took epilambanomai hold of the man, healed iaomai him autos, and kai sent apolyō him away . 5 And kai to pros them autos, he said legō, “ Which tis of you hymeis, when his son hyios or ē his ox bous has fallen piptō into eis a well phrear, · kai does not ou immediately eutheōs pull anaspaō it autos up , even on en the ho Sabbath sabbaton day hēmera?” 6 And kai they were not ou able ischuō to give antapokrinomai an answer to pros this houtos.
7 He began speaking legō · de a parable parabolē to pros those ho who had been invited kaleō when he noticed epechō how pōs they were seeking out eklegomai the ho places prōtoklisia of honor . He said legō to pros them autos, 8 “ When hotan you are invited kaleō by hypo someone tis to eis a wedding gamos feast , do not mē take kataklinō a seat in eis a ho place prōtoklisia of honor , lest mēpote someone more distinguished entimos than you sy may have been eimi invited kaleō by hypo your autos host, 9 and kai the ho one who invited kaleō both you sy and kai him autos will say legō to you sy, ‘ Give didōmi your place topos to this houtos person ,’ and kai then tote with meta shame aischunē you will proceed archō to take katechō the ho least eschatos important place topos. 10 Rather alla, when hotan you are invited kaleō, go poreuō and recline anapiptō in eis the ho least eschatos important place topos so hina that when hotan the ho one who invited kaleō you sy comes erchomai he may say legō to you sy, ‘ Friend philos, move prosanabainō up higher!’ Then tote you sy will have eimi glory doxa in enōpion the presence of all pas who ho are reclining synanakeimai at table with you sy. 11 For hoti everyone pas who ho exalts hypsoō himself heautou will be humbled tapeinoō, and kai the ho one who humbles tapeinoō himself heautou will be exalted hypsoō.”
12 Then de he also kai said legō to the ho one who had invited kaleō him autos, “ When hotan you give poieō a luncheon ariston or ē a dinner deipnon do not mē invite phōneō · ho your sy friends philos, or mēde · ho your sy brothers adelphos, or mēde · ho your sy relatives syngenēs, or mēde rich plousios neighbors geitōn, in mēpote case they autos also kai invite antikaleō you sy in return, and kai there would be ginomai a repayment antapodoma to you sy. 13 But alla when hotan you give poieō a feast dochē, invite kaleō the poor ptōchos, the crippled anapeiros, the lame chōlos, the blind typhlos. 14 Then kai you will be eimi blessed makarios, because hoti they do not ou have echō a way to pay antapodidōmi you sy back , for gar there will be a repayment antapodidōmi for you sy at en the ho resurrection anastasis of the ho righteous dikaios.”
15 When one tis of ho those reclining at table with synanakeimai him heard akouō · de him say these houtos things , he said legō to him autos, “ Blessed makarios is the person who hostis will eat esthiō bread artos in en the ho kingdom basileia of ho God theos!” 16 But de he ho said legō to him autos, “ A tis man anthrōpos once gave poieō a great megas banquet deipnon and kai invited kaleō many polys guests. 17 And kai he sent apostellō · ho his autos servant at the ho hour hōra of the ho banquet deipnon to say legō to those ho who had been invited kaleō, ‘ Come erchomai, for hoti everything is eimi now ēdē ready hetoimos.’ 18 But kai one heis after apo another they all pas began archō to make excuses paraiteomai. The ho first prōtos said legō to him autos, ‘ I bought agorazō a field agros, and kai I must echō go exerchomai out to see it autos. I ask erōtaō you sy, have echō me egō excused paraiteomai.’ 19 And kai another heteros said legō, ‘ I have bought agorazō five pente yoke zeugos of oxen bous, and kai I am going poreuō to try dokimazō them autos out . I ask erōtaō you sy, have echō me egō excused paraiteomai.’ 20 And kai another heteros said legō, ‘ I have married gameō a wife gynē, and kai because dia of this houtos I am not ou able dynamai to come erchomai.’ 21 So kai the ho servant came paraginomai and reported apangellō these things houtos to ho his autos master kyrios. Then tote the ho master of the house oikodespotēs was angry orgizō and said legō to ho his autos servant, ‘ Go exerchomai out quickly tacheōs into eis the ho streets platys and kai alleys rhymē of the ho city polis, and kai bring in eisagō here hōde the ho poor ptōchos, · kai the crippled anapeiros, · kai the blind typhlos, and kai the lame chōlos.’ 22 · kai The ho slave said legō, ‘ Sir kyrios, what hos you ordered epitassō has been done ginomai, and kai still eti there is eimi room topos.’ 23 · kai The ho master kyrios said legō to pros the ho servant, ‘ Go exerchomai out to eis the ho highways hodos and kai hedgerows phragmos and kai urge anankazō people to come eiserchomai in , so hina that my egō house oikos may be filled gemizō. · ho 24 For gar I say legō to you hymeis that hoti none oudeis of ho those ekeinos men anēr who ho were invited kaleō will taste geuomai my egō · ho banquet deipnon.’”
25 Great polys crowds ochlos of people were traveling symporeuomai with · de him autos, and kai he turned strephō and said legō to pros them autos, 26 “ If ei anyone tis comes erchomai to pros me egō and kai does not ou hate miseō · ho his own heautou father patēr and kai · ho mother mētēr, and kai · ho wife gynē and kai · ho children teknon, and kai · ho brothers adelphos and kai · ho sisters adelphē, and te even eti · kai · ho his own heautou life psychē, he cannot ou be eimi my egō disciple mathētēs. 27 Whoever hostis does not ou carry bastazō · ho his own heautou cross stauros and kai come erchomai after opisō me egō cannot ou dynamai be eimi my egō disciple mathētēs.
28 “ For gar which tis of ek you hymeis, wanting thelō to build oikodomeō a tower pyrgos, does not ouchi first prōton sit kathizō down and calculate psēphizō the ho cost dapanē, whether ei he has echō enough to bring it to eis completion apartismos; 29 otherwise hina mēpote, when he autos has laid tithēmi the foundation themelios and kai is not mē able ischuō to complete ekteleō the tower, all pas who ho see theōreō it will begin archō to ridicule empaizō him autos, 30 saying legō, ‘ This houtos · ho man anthrōpos began archō to build oikodomeō and kai was not ou able ischuō to complete ekteleō.’ 31 Or ē what tis king basileus, going poreuō out to encounter symballō another heteros king basileus in eis war polemos, will not ouchi sit kathizō down first prōton and deliberate bouleuō whether ei he is eimi able dynatos with en ten deka thousand chilias troops to oppose hypantaō the ho one coming erchomai against epi him autos with meta twenty eikosi thousand chilias? 32 And de if ei not mē, while eimi he autos is eimi yet eti a great porrō way off , he will send apostellō a delegation presbeia and ask erōtaō for terms ho of pros peace eirēnē. 33 In the same houtōs way , therefore oun, everyone pas of ek you hymeis who hos does not ou renounce apotassō all pas · ho his heautou possessions hyparchō cannot ou dynamai be eimi my egō disciple mathētēs.
34 “ Salt halas, then oun, is good kalos; · ho but de if ean · kai · ho salt halas has become insipid mōrainō, with en what tis shall it be seasoned artyō? 35 Neither oute for eis soil gē or oute for eis the dung-heap kopria is it eimi of any use euthetos; they throw ballō it autos away exō. The ho one who has echō ears ous to hear akouō, let him hear akouō.”
