Matthew 8:1-13 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
8 When He had come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed Him.
2 And behold, there came a leper and worshiped Him, saying, “Lord, if Thou wilt, Thou canst make me clean.”
3 And Jesus put forth His hand and touched him, saying, “I will: be thou clean.” And immediately his leprosy was cleansed.
4 And Jesus said unto him, “See thou tell no man; but go thy way, show thyself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded for a testimony unto them.”
5 And when Jesus had entered into Capernaum, there came unto Him a centurion, beseeching Him
6 and saying, “Lord, my servant lieth at home sick with the palsy and grievously tormented.”
7 And Jesus said unto him, “I will come and heal him.”
8 The centurion answered and said, “Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldest come under my roof. But speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed.
9 For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me. And I say to this man, ‘Go!’ and he goeth; and to another, ‘Come!’ and he cometh; and to my servant, ‘Do this!’ and he doeth it.”
10 When Jesus heard it, He marveled and said to those who followed, “Verily I say unto you, I have not found such great faith, no, not in Israel.
11 And I say unto you, that many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham and Isaac and Jacob in the Kingdom of Heaven.
12 But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”
13 And Jesus said unto the centurion, “Go thy way, and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee.” And his servant was healed in that selfsame hour.
Luke 7 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
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.”
