Jesus Cleanses Ten Lepers

11 (A)On the way to Jerusalem (B)he was passing along between Samaria and Galilee. 12 And as he entered a village, he was met by ten lepers,[a] (C)who stood at a distance 13 and lifted up their voices, saying, “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.” 14 When he saw them he said to them, “Go and (D)show yourselves to the priests.” And as they went they were cleansed. 15 Then one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, (E)praising God with a loud voice; 16 and (F)he fell on his face at Jesus' feet, giving him thanks. Now he was (G)a Samaritan. 17 Then Jesus answered, “Were not (H)ten cleansed? Where are the nine? 18 Was no one found to return and (I)give praise to God except this (J)foreigner?” 19 And he said to him, “Rise and go your way; (K)your faith has (L)made you well.”[b]

  2. Luke 17:19 Or has saved you

16 for (A)their feet run to evil,
    and they make haste to shed blood.
17 (B)For in vain is a net spread
    in the sight of any bird,
18 but these men (C)lie in wait for their own blood;
    they (D)set an ambush for their own lives.
19 (E)Such are the ways of everyone who is (F)greedy for unjust gain;
    (G)it takes away the life of its possessors.

The Call of Wisdom

20 (H)Wisdom cries aloud in the street,
    in the markets she raises her voice;
21 at the head of the noisy streets she cries out;
    at (I)the entrance of the city gates she speaks:
22 “How long, O (J)simple ones, will you love being simple?
How long will (K)scoffers delight in their scoffing
    and fools (L)hate knowledge?
23 If you turn at my reproof,[a]
behold, I will (M)pour out my spirit to you;
    I will make my words known to you.
24 (N)Because I have called and (O)you refused to listen,
    have (P)stretched out my hand and no one has heeded,
25 because you have (Q)ignored all my counsel
    and (R)would have none of my reproof,
26 I also (S)will laugh at your calamity;
    I will mock when (T)terror strikes you,
27 when terror strikes you like (U)a storm
    and your calamity comes like a whirlwind,
    when distress and anguish come upon you.
28 (V)Then they will call upon me, but I will not answer;
    they will seek me diligently but will not find me.
29 Because they (W)hated knowledge
    and (X)did not choose the fear of the Lord,
30 (Y)would have none of my counsel
    and (Z)despised all my reproof,
31 therefore they shall eat (AA)the fruit of their way,
    and have (AB)their fill of their own devices.
