Luke 9:57-62 Modern English Version (MEV)

The Would-Be Followers of Jesus

57 As they went along the way, a man said to Him, “Lord, I will follow You wherever You go.”

58 Jesus said to him, “Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests. But the Son of Man has no place to lay His head.”

59 He said to another man, “Follow Me.”

But he said, “Lord, let me first go and bury my father.”

60 Jesus said to him, “Leave the dead to bury their own dead. But you go and preach the kingdom of God.”

61 Yet another said, “Lord, I will follow You, but let me first go bid farewell to those at my house.”

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