Luke 9:51-56 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

51 And it was done, when the days of his taking up were fulfilled, he set fast his face, to go to Jerusalem,

52 and sent messengers before his sight. And they went, and entered into a city of Samaritans, to make ready to him.

53 And they received not him, for the face of him was going into Jerusalem [for the face was of him going into Jerusalem].

54 And when James and John, his disciples, saw, they said, Lord, wilt thou that we say [wilt thou that we ask], that fire come down from heaven, and waste them, [as Elias did]?

55 And he turned, and blamed them, and said, Ye know not, whose spirits ye be; [And he turned blamed them, saying, Ye know not, whose spirit ye be;]

56 for man's Son came not to destroy men's souls [to lose men's souls], but to save [them]. And they went into another castle.

Luke 9:51-56 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

51 And it followed, when the time was come that he should be received up, then he set his face to go to Jerusalem, and sent messengers before him. 52 And they went and entered into a city of the Samaritans, to make ready for him. 53 But the Samaritans would not receive him, because his face was set toward Jerusalem. 54 When his disciples James and John saw that, they said, Lord, would you have us call fire down from heaven to consume them, even as Elijah did?

55 Jesus turned about and rebuked them, saying, You know not what manner of spirit you are of. The Son of man has not come to destroy men’s lives, but to save them.

56 And they set off for another town.

51 [a]And it came to pass, when the days were accomplished, that he should be received up, he [b]settled himself fully to go to Jerusalem,

52 And sent messengers before him: and they went and entered into a town of the Samaritans, to prepare him lodging.

53 But they would not receive him, because his behavior was as though he would go to Jerusalem.

54 [c]And when his disciples, James and John saw it, they said, Lord, wilt thou that we command, that fire come down from heaven, and consume them, even as Elijah did?
