7:1 Now when he had ended all his sayings in the audience of the
people, he entered into Capernaum.
7:2 And a certain centurion's servant, who was dear unto him, was
sick, and ready to die.
7:3 And when he heard of Jesus, he sent unto him the elders of the
Jews, beseeching him that he would come and heal his servant.
7:4 And when they came to Jesus, they besought him instantly,
saying, That he was worthy for whom he should do this:
7:5 For he loveth our nation, and he hath built us a synagogue.
7:6 Then Jesus went with them. And when he was now 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:
7:7 Wherefore neither thought I myself worthy to come unto thee:
but say in a word, and my servant shall be healed.
7:8 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.
7:9 When Jesus heard these things, he marvelled at him, and turned
him about, and said unto the people that followed him, I say
unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.
7:10 And they that were sent, returning to the house, found the
servant whole that had been sick.
7:11 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 much
7:12 Now when he came nigh to the gate of the city, behold, there
was a dead man carried out, the only son of his mother, and
she was a widow: and much people of the city was with her.
7:13 And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her, and said
unto her, Weep not.
7:14 And he came and touched the bier: and they that bare him stood
still. And he said, Young man, I say unto thee, Arise.
7:15 And he that was dead sat up, and began to speak. And he
delivered him to his mother.
7:16 And there came a fear on all: and they glorified God, saying,
That a great prophet is risen up among us; and, That God hath
visited his people.
7:17 And this rumour of him went forth throughout all Judaea, and
throughout all the region round about.
7:18 And the disciples of John shewed him of all these things.
7:19 And John calling unto him two of his disciples sent them to
Jesus, saying, Art thou he that should come? or look we for
7:20 When the men were come unto him, they said, John Baptist hath
sent us unto thee, saying, Art thou he that should come? or
look we for another?
7:21 And in that same hour he cured many of their infirmities and
plagues, and of evil spirits; and unto many that were blind he
7:22 Then Jesus answering said unto them, Go your way, and tell
John what things ye have seen and heard; how that the blind
see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear,
the dead are raised, to the poor the gospel is preached.
7:23 And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me.
7:24 And when the messengers of John were departed, he began to
speak unto the people concerning John, What went ye out into
the wilderness for to see? A reed shaken with the wind?
7:25 But what went ye out for to see? A man clothed in soft
raiment? Behold, they which are gorgeously apparelled, and
live delicately, are in kings' courts.
7:26 But what went ye out for to see? A prophet? Yea, I say unto
you, and much more than a prophet.
7:27 This is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger
before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.
7:28 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.
7:29 And all the people that heard him, and the publicans,
justified God, being baptized with the baptism of John.
7:30 But the Pharisees and lawyers rejected the counsel of God
against themselves, being not baptized of him.
7:31 And the Lord said, Whereunto then shall I liken the men of
this generation? and to what are they like?
7:32 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
7:33 For John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking
wine; and ye say, He hath a devil.
7:34 The Son of man is come eating and drinking; and ye say, Behold
a gluttonous man, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and
7:35 But wisdom is justified of all her children.
7:36 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
7:37 And, behold, a woman in the city, which was a sinner, when she
knew that Jesus sat at meat in the Pharisee's house, brought
an alabaster box of ointment,
7:38 And stood at his feet behind him weeping, and began to wash
his feet with tears, and did wipe them with the hairs of her
head, and kissed his feet, and anointed them with the
7:39 Now when the Pharisee which had bidden him saw it, he spake
within himself, saying, This man, if he were a prophet, would
have known who and what manner of woman this is that toucheth
him: for she is a sinner.
7:40 And Jesus answering said unto him, Simon, I have somewhat to
say unto thee. And he saith, Master, say on.
7:41 There was a certain creditor which had two debtors: the one
owed five hundred pence, and the other fifty.
7:42 And when they had nothing to pay, he frankly forgave them
both. Tell me therefore, which of them will love him most?
7:43 Simon answered and said, I suppose that he, to whom he forgave
most. And he said unto him, Thou hast rightly judged.
7:44 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 hairs of her head.
7:45 Thou gavest me no kiss: but this woman since the time I came
in hath not ceased to kiss my feet.
7:46 My head with oil thou didst not anoint: but this woman hath
anointed my feet with ointment.
7:47 Wherefore 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.
7:48 And he said unto her, Thy sins are forgiven.
7:49 And they that sat at meat with him began to say within
themselves, Who is this that forgiveth sins also?
7:50 And he said to the woman, Thy faith hath saved thee; go in
