Luke 9:57-62Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

Following Jesus

57 As they were traveling on the road someone said to Him, “I will follow You wherever You go!”

58 Jesus told him, “Foxes have dens, and birds of the sky[a] have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay His head.” 59 Then He said to another, “Follow Me.”

“Lord,” he said, “first let me go bury my father.”[b]

60 But He told him, “Let the dead bury their own dead, but you go and spread the news of the kingdom of God.”

61 Another also said, “I will follow You, Lord, but first let me go and say good-bye to those at my house.”

62 But Jesus said to him, “No one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back is fit for the kingdom of God.”
