Luke 6-7 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
6 And it came to pass on the second Sabbath after the first, that He went through the cornfields. And His disciples plucked the ears of corn and, rubbing them in their hands, ate.
2 And certain of the Pharisees said unto them, “Why do ye that which is not lawful to do on the Sabbath days?”
3 And Jesus answering them said, “Have ye not read so much as this, what David did when he himself hungered and they that were with him:
4 how he went into the house of God, and took and ate the showbread and gave also to them that were with him, which it is not lawful to eat except for the priests alone?”
5 And He said unto them, “The Son of Man is Lord also of the Sabbath.”
6 And it came to pass also on another Sabbath, that He entered into the synagogue and taught. And there was a man whose right hand was withered.
7 And the scribes and Pharisees watched Him to see whether He would heal on the Sabbath day, that they might find an accusation against Him.
8 But He knew their thoughts, and said to the man who had the withered hand, “Rise up and stand forth in the midst.” And he arose and stood forth.
9 Then said Jesus unto them, “I will ask you one thing: Is it lawful on the Sabbath days to do good, or to do evil? To save life, or to destroy it?”
10 And looking round about upon them all, He said unto the man, “Stretch forth thy hand.” And he did so, and his hand was restored whole as the other.
11 And they were filled with madness, and communed one with another what they might do to Jesus.
12 And it came to pass in those days that He went out onto a mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God.
13 And when it was day, He called unto Him His disciples, and from them He chose twelve, whom also He named apostles:
14 Simon (whom He also named Peter), and Andrew his brother, James and John, Philip and Bartholomew,
15 Matthew and Thomas, James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon called the Zealot,
16 and Judas the brother of James, and Judas Iscariot who also was the traitor.
17 And He came down with them and stood on the plain with the company of His disciples and a great multitude of people out of all Judea and Jerusalem, and from the seacoast of Tyre and Sidon, who came to hear Him and to be healed of their diseases,
18 and those who were vexed with unclean spirits; and they were healed.
19 And the whole multitude sought to touch Him, for there went virtue out of Him and healed them all.
20 And He lifted up His eyes on His disciples and said, “Blessed be ye poor, for yours is the Kingdom of God.
21 Blessed are ye that hunger now, for ye shall be filled. Blessed are ye that weep now, for ye shall laugh.
22 Blessed are ye when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of Man’s sake.
23 Rejoice ye in that day and leap for joy, for behold, your reward is great in Heaven; for in like manner did their fathers unto the prophets.
24 “But woe unto you that are rich, for ye have received your consolation.
25 Woe unto you that are full, for ye shall hunger. Woe unto you that laugh now, for ye shall mourn and weep.
26 Woe unto you when all men shall speak well of you, for so did their fathers to the false prophets.
27 “But I say unto you that hear: Love your enemies, do good to them that hate you.
28 Bless them that curse you, and pray for them that despitefully use you.
29 And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek, offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloak, forbid not to take thy coat also.
30 Give to every man that asketh of thee; and of him that taketh away thy goods, ask them not back.
31 And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise.
32 For if ye love them that love you, what thanks have ye? For sinners also love those that love them.
33 And if ye do good to them that do good to you, what thanks have ye? For sinners also do even the same.
34 And if ye lend to them from whom ye hope to receive, what thanks have ye? For sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again.
35 But love ye your enemies, and do good and lend, hoping for nothing in return; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest; for He is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil.
36 Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful.
37 “Judge not, and ye shall not be judged. Condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned. Forgive, and ye shall be forgiven.
38 Give, and it shall be given unto you: good measure, pressed down and shaken together and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete, therewith it shall be measured to you again.”
39 And He spoke a parable unto them: “Can the blind lead the blind? Shall they not both fall into the ditch?
40 The disciple is not above his master, but every one that is perfect shall be as his master.
41 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but perceivest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
42 Or how canst thou say to thy brother, ‘Brother, let me pull out the mote that is in thine eye,’ when thou thyself beholdest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite! Cast out first the beam out of thine own eye, and then shalt thou see clearly to pull out the mote that is in thy brother’s eye.
43 “For a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
44 For every tree is known by his own fruit. For from thorns men do not gather figs, nor from a bramble bush gather they grapes.
45 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil; for of the abundance of his heart his mouth speaketh.
46 “And why call ye Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not the things which I say?
47 Whosoever cometh to Me, and heareth My sayings and doeth them, I will show you to whom he is like:
48 He is like a man who built a house and dug deep and laid the foundation on a rock; and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house and could not shake it, for it was founded upon a rock.
49 But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that built a house without a foundation upon the earth, against which the stream beat vehemently, and immediately it fell. And the ruin of that house was great.”
7 Now when He had ended all His sayings in the audience of the people, He entered into Capernaum.
2 And a certain centurion’s servant, who was dear unto him, was sick and ready to die.
3 And when he heard of Jesus, he sent the elders of the Jews unto Him, beseeching Him that He would come and heal his servant.
4 And when they came to Jesus they besought Him earnestly, saying that the one for whom He should do this was worthy,
5 “for he loveth our nation, and he hath built us a synagogue.”
6 And Jesus went with them. And when He was not far from the house, the centurion sent friends to Him, saying unto Him, “Lord, trouble not Thyself, for I am not worthy that Thou shouldest enter under my roof.
7 Therefore neither thought I myself worthy to come unto Thee. But say the word, and my servant shall be healed.
8 For I also am a man set under authority, having under me soldiers. And I say unto one, ‘Go’, and he goeth; and to another, ‘Come,’ and he cometh; and to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he doeth it.”
9 When Jesus heard these things, He marveled at him, and turned about and said unto the people who followed Him, “I say unto you, I have not found so great a faith, no, not in Israel.”
10 And those who were sent, returning to the house, found the servant whole who had been sick.
11 And it came to pass the day after, that He went into a city called Nain; and many of His disciples went with Him, and many people.
12 Now when He came nigh to the gate of the city, behold, there was a dead man being carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow. And many people of the city were with her.
13 And when the Lord saw her, He had compassion on her and said unto her, “Weep not.”
14 And He came and touched the bier, and those who bore him stood still. And He said, “Young man, I say unto thee, arise.”
15 And he that was dead sat up and began to speak. And He delivered him to his mother.
16 And there came a fear on all, and they glorified God, saying, “A great prophet is risen up among us”; and, “God hath visited His people.”
17 And this report of Him went forth throughout all Judea and throughout all the region round about.
18 And the disciples of John told him of all these things.
19 And John, calling unto him two of his disciples, sent them to Jesus asking, “Art thou He that should come, or look we for another?”
20 When the men had come unto Him, they said, “John the Baptist hath sent us unto thee, asking, ‘Art thou He that should come, or look we for another?’”
21 And in that same hour He cured many of their infirmities and plagues and of evil spirits, and unto many who were blind He gave sight.
22 Then Jesus answering said unto them, “Go your way, and tell John what things ye have seen and heard: how the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, to the poor the Gospel is preached.
23 And blessed is he whosoever shall not be offended in Me.”
24 And when the messengers of John had departed, He began to speak unto the people concerning John: “What went ye out into the wilderness to see? A reed shaken with the wind?
25 But what went ye out to see? A man clothed in soft raiment? Behold, they that are gorgeously appareled and live luxuriously are in kings’ courts.
26 But what went ye out to see? A prophet? Yea, I say unto you, and much more than a prophet.
27 This is he, of whom it is written: ‘Behold, I send My messenger before Thy face, who shall prepare Thy way before Thee.’
28 For I say unto you, among those that are born of women, there is not a greater prophet than John the Baptist; but he that is least in the Kingdom of God is greater than he.”
29 And all the people that heard Him, and the publicans, justified God, being baptized with the baptism of John.
30 But the Pharisees and lawyers rejected the counsel of God against themselves, being not baptized by him.
31 And the Lord said, “Whereunto then shall I liken the men of this generation? And to what are they like?
32 They are like unto children sitting in the marketplace, and calling one to another and saying, ‘We have piped unto you, and ye have not danced; we have mourned to you, and ye have not wept.’
33 For John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking wine, and ye say, ‘He hath a devil.’
34 The Son of Man is come eating and drinking, and ye say, ‘Behold, a gluttonous man and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners!’
35 But wisdom is justified by all her children.”
36 And one of the Pharisees desired Him that He would eat with him. And He went into the Pharisee’s house and sat down to meat.
37 And behold, a woman in the city, who was a sinner, when she learned that Jesus sat at meat in the Pharisee’s house, brought an alabaster box of ointment,
38 and stood at His feet behind Him weeping; and began to wash His feet with tears and wiped them with the hair of her head, and kissed His feet and anointed them with the ointment.
39 Now when the Pharisee who had bidden Him saw it, he spoke within himself, saying, “This man, if he were a prophet, would have known who and what manner of woman this is who toucheth him, for she is a sinner.”
40 And Jesus answering said unto him, “Simon, I have something to say unto thee.” And he said, “Master, say on.”
41 “There was a certain creditor that had two debtors. The one owed five hundred pence, and the other fifty.
42 And when they had nothing to pay, he freely forgave them both. Tell me therefore, which of them will love him most?”
43 Simon answered and said, “I suppose that he to whom he forgave most. And He said unto him, “Thou hast rightly judged.”
44 And He turned to the woman and said unto Simon, “Seest thou this woman? I entered into thine house: Thou gavest Me no water for My feet, but she hath washed My feet with tears and wiped them with the hair of her head.
45 Thou gavest Me no kiss, but this woman since the time I came in hath not ceased to kiss My feet.
46 My head with oil thou didst not anoint, but this woman hath anointed My feet with ointment.
47 Therefore I say unto thee, her sins, which are many, are forgiven, for she loved much. But to whom little is forgiven, the same loveth little.”
48 And He said unto her, “Thy sins are forgiven.”
49 And those who sat at meat with Him began to say within themselves, “Who is this that forgiveth sins also?”
50 And He said to the woman, “Thy faith hath saved thee. Go in peace.”
