LUKE

 

1:1 Inasmuch as many have taken in hand to set
in order a narrative of those things which have
been fulfilled among us,
1:2 just as those who from the beginning were
eyewitnesses and ministers of the word delivered
them to us,
1:3 it seemed good to me also, having had
perfect understanding of all things from the very
first, to write to you an orderly account, most
excellent Theophilus,
1:4 that you may know the certainty of those
things in which you were instructed.
1:5 There was in the days of Herod, the king of
Judea, a certain priest named Zacharias, of the
division of Abijah. His wife was of the daughters
of Aaron, and her name was Elizabeth.
1:6 And they were both righteous before
Yahweh, walking in all the commandments and
ordinances of Yahweh blameless.
1:7 But they had no child, because Elizabeth was
barren, and they were both well advanced in
years.
1:8 So it was, that while he was serving as priest
before Yahweh in the order of his division,
1:9 according to the custom of the priesthood,
his lot fell to burn incense when he went into the
temple of Yahweh.
1:10 And the whole multitude of the people was
praying outside at the hour of incense.
1:11 Then an angel of Yahweh appeared to him,
standing on the right side of the altar of incense.
1:12 And when Zacharias saw him, he was
troubled, and fear fell upon him.
1:13 But the angel said to him, "Do not be afraid,
Zacharias, for your prayer is heard; and your
wife Elizabeth will bear you a son, and you shall
call his name John.
1:14 "And you will have joy and gladness, and
many will rejoice at his birth.
1:15 "For he will be great in the sight of
Yahweh, and shall drink neither wine nor strong
drink. He will also be filled with His Holy Spirit,
even from his mother's womb.
1:16 "And he will turn many of the children of
Israel to Yahweh their God.
1:17 "He will also go before Him in the spirit
and power of Elijah, 'to turn the hearts of the
fathers to the children,' and the disobedient to the
wisdom of the just, to make ready a people
prepared for Yahweh."
1:18 And Zacharias said to the angel, "How shall
I know this? For I am an old man, and my wife is
well advanced in years."
1:19 And the angel answered and said to him, "I
am Gabriel, who stands in the presence of
Yahweh, and was sent to speak to you and bring
you these glad tidings.
1:20 "But behold, you will be mute and not able
to speak until the day these things take place,
because you did not believe my words which
will be fulfilled in their own time."
1:21 And the people waited for Zacharias, and
marveled that he lingered so long in the temple.
1:22 But when he came out, he could not speak
to them; and they perceived that he had seen a
vision in the temple, for he beckoned to them
and remained speechless.
1:23 And so it was, as soon as the days of his
service were completed, that he departed to his
own house.
1:24 Now after those days his wife Elizabeth
conceived; and she hid herself five months,
saying,
1:25 "Thus Yahweh has dealt with me, in the
days when He looked on me, to take away my
reproach among people."
1:26 Now in the sixth month the angel Gabriel
was sent by Yahweh to a city of Galilee named
Nazareth,
1:27 to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name
was Joseph, of the house of David. The virgin's
name was Mary.
1:28 And having come in, the angel said to her,
"Rejoice, highly favored one, Yahweh is with
you; blessed are you among women!"
1:29 But when she saw him, she was troubled at
his saying, and considered what manner of
greeting this was.
1:30 Then the angel said to her, "Do not be
afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with
Yahweh.
1:31 "And behold, you will conceive in your
womb and bring forth a Son, and His name shall
be called [shall mean] Yah’shua.
1:32 "He will be great, and will be called the Son
of the Highest; and the Lord Yahweh will give
Him the throne of His father David.
1:33 "And He will reign over the house of Jacob
forever, and of His kingdom there will be no
end."
1:34 Then Mary said to the angel, "How can this
be, since I have not been physically intimate with
a man?"
1:35 And the angel answered and said to her,
"His Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the
power of the Highest will overshadow you;
therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born
will be called the Son of Yahweh.
1:36 "Now indeed, Elizabeth your relative has
also conceived a son in her old age; and this is
now the sixth month for her who was called
barren.
1:37 "For with Yahweh nothing will be
impossible."
1:38 Then Mary said, "Behold the maidservant
of Yahweh! Let it be to me according to your
word." And the angel departed from her.
1:39 Now Mary arose in those days and went
into the hill country with haste, to a city of
Judah,
1:40 and entered the house of Zacharias and
greeted Elizabeth.
1:41 And it happened, when Elizabeth heard the
greeting of Mary, that the babe leaped in her
womb; and Elizabeth was filled with His Holy
Spirit.
1:42 Then she spoke out with a loud voice and
said, "Blessed are you among women, and
blessed is the fruit of your womb!
1:43 "But why is this granted to me, that the
mother of my Lord should come to me?
1:44 "For indeed, as soon as the voice of your
greeting sounded in my ears, the babe leaped in
my womb for joy.
1:45 "Blessed is she who believed, for there will
be a fulfillment of those things which were told
her from Yahweh."
1:46 Mary said: "My spirit magnifies Yahweh,
1:47 And my spirit has rejoiced in Yahweh my
Savior.
1:48 For He has regarded the lowly state of His
maidservant;
For behold, henceforth all generations will call
me blessed.
1:49 For He who is mighty has done great things
for me,
And holy is His name.
1:50 And His mercy is on those who respect Him
From generation to generation.
1:51 He has shown strength with His arm;
He has scattered the proud in the imagination of
their hearts.
1:52 He has put down the mighty from their
thrones,
And exalted the lowly.
1:53 He has filled the hungry with good things,
And the rich He has sent away empty.
1:54 He has helped His servant Israel,
In remembrance of His mercy,
1:55 As He spoke to our fathers,
To Abraham and to his seed forever."
1:56 And Mary remained with her about three
months, and returned to her house.
1:57 Now Elizabeth's full time came for her to
be delivered, and she brought forth a son.
1:58 When her neighbors and relatives heard
how Yahweh had shown great mercy to her, they
rejoiced with her.
1:59 So it was, on the eighth day, that they came
to circumcise the child; and they would have
called him by the name of his father, Zacharias.
1:60 His mother answered and said, "No; he
shall be called John."
1:61 But they said to her, "There is no one
among your relatives who is called by this
name."
1:62 So they made signs to his father-what he
would have him called.
1:63 And he asked for a writing tablet, and
wrote, saying, "His name is John." So they all
marveled.
1:64 Immediately his mouth was opened and his
tongue loosed, and he spoke, praising Yahweh.
1:65 Then fear came on all who dwelt around
them; and all these sayings were discussed
throughout all the hill country of Judea.
1:66 And all those who heard them kept them in
their hearts, saying, "What kind of child will this
be?" And the hand of Yahweh was with him.
1:67 Now his father Zacharias was filled with
His Holy Spirit, and prophesied, saying:
1:68 "Blessed is the Yahweh, God of Israel,
For He has visited and redeemed His people,
1:69 And has raised up a horn of salvation for us
In the house of His servant David,
1:70 As He spoke by the mouth of His holy
prophets,
Who have been since the world began,
1:71 That we should be saved from our enemies
And from the hand of all who hate us,
1:72 To perform the mercy promised to our
fathers
And to remember His holy covenant,
1:73 The oath which Yahweh swore to our father
Abraham:
1:74 To grant us that we,
Being delivered from the hand of our enemies,
Might serve Him without fear,
1:75 In holiness and righteousness before Him
all the days of our life.
1:76 "And you, child, will be called the prophet
of the Highest;
For you will go before the face of Yahweh to
prepare His ways,
1:77 To give knowledge of salvation to His
people
By the remission of their sins,
1:78 Through the tender mercy of our God,
With which the Dayspring from on high has
visited us;
1:79 To give light to those who sit in darkness
and the shadow of death,
To guide our feet into the way of peace."
1:80 So the child grew and became strong in
spirit, and was in the deserts till the day of his
manifestation to Israel.


Luke 2:
2:1 And it came to pass in those days that a
decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all
the people of the world should be registered.
2:2 This census first took place while Quirinius
was governing Syria.
2:3 So all went to be registered, everyone to his
own city.
2:4 Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the
city of Nazareth, into Judea, to the city of David,
which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the
house and lineage of David,
2:5 to be registered with Mary, his betrothed
wife, who was with child.
2:6 So it was, that while they were there, the
days were completed for her to be delivered.
2:7 And she brought forth her firstborn Son, and
wrapped Him in swaddling cloths, and laid Him
in a manger, because there was no room for them
in the inn.
2:8 Now there were in the same country
shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch
over their flock by night.
2:9 And behold, an angel of Yahweh stood
before them, and the glory of Yahweh shone
around them, and they were greatly afraid.
2:10 Then the angel said to them, "Do not be
afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of
great joy which will be to all people.
2:11 "For there is born to you this day in the city
of David a Savior, who is the Messiah.
2:12 "And this will be the sign to you: You will
find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying
in a manger."
2:13 And suddenly there was with the angel a
multitude of the heavenly host praising Yahweh
and saying:
2:14 "Glory to Yahweh in the highest,
And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!"
2:15 So it was, when the angels had gone away
from them into the sky, that the shepherds said to
one another, "Let us now go to Bethlehem and
see this thing that has come to pass, which
Yahweh has made known to us."
2:16 And they came with haste and found Mary
and Joseph, and the Babe lying in a manger.
2:17 Now when they had seen Him, they made
widely known the saying which was told them
concerning this Child.
2:18 And all those who heard it marveled at
those things which were told them by the
shepherds.
2:19 But Mary kept all these things and pondered
them in her heart.
2:20 Then the shepherds returned, glorifying and
praising Yahweh for all the things that they had
heard and seen, as it was told them.
2:21 And when eight days were completed for
the circumcision of the Child, His name was
called YAH’SHUA, the name given by the angel
before He was conceived in the womb.
2:22 Now when the days of her purification
according to the law of Moses were completed,
they brought Him to Jerusalem to present Him to
Yahweh
2:23 (as it is written in the law of Yahweh,
"Every male who opens the womb shall be called
holy to Yahweh"),
2:24 and to offer a sacrifice according to what is
said in the law of Yahweh, "A pair of turtledoves
or two young pigeons."
2:25 And behold, there was a man in Jerusalem
whose name was Simeon, and this man was just
and devout, waiting for the Consolation of Israel,
and His Holy Spirit was upon him.
2:26 And it had been revealed to him by His
Holy Spirit that he would not see death before he
had seen Yahweh's Messiah.
2:27 So he came by His Spirit into the temple.
And when the parents brought in the Child
Yah’shua, to do for Him according to the custom
of the law,
2:28 he took Him up in his arms and blessed
Him and said:
2:29 "Lord Yahweh, now You are letting Your
servant depart in peace,
According to Your word;
2:30 For my eyes have seen Your salvation
2:31 Which You have prepared before the face
of all peoples,
2:32 A light to bring revelation to the Gentiles,
And the glory of Your people Israel."
2:33 And Joseph and His mother marveled at
those things which were spoken of Him.
2:34 Then Simeon blessed them, and said to
Mary His mother, "Behold, this Child is destined
for the fall and rising of many in Israel, and for a
sign which will be spoken against
2:35 "(yes, a sword will pierce through your own
body also), that the thoughts of many hearts may
be revealed."
2:36 Now there was one, Anna, a prophetess,
the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Asher.
She was of a great age, and had lived with a
husband seven years from her virginity;
2:37 and this woman was a widow of about
eighty-four years, who did not depart from the
temple, but served Yahweh with fastings and
prayers night and day.
2:38 And coming in that instant she gave thanks
to Yahweh, and spoke of Him to all those who
looked for redemption in Jerusalem.
2:39 So when they had performed all things
according to the law of Yahweh, they returned to
Galilee, to their own city, Nazareth.
2:40 And the Child grew and became strong in
spirit, filled with wisdom; and the grace of
Yahweh was upon Him.
2:41 His parents went to Jerusalem every year at
the Feast of the Passover.
2:42 And when He was twelve years old, they
went up to Jerusalem according to the custom of
the feast.
2:43 When they had finished the days of the
Feast, as they returned, the Boy Yah’shua
lingered behind in Jerusalem. And Joseph and
His mother did not know it;
2:44 but supposing Him to have been in the
company, they went a day's journey, and sought
Him among their relatives and acquaintances.
2:45 So when they did not find Him, they
returned to Jerusalem, seeking Him.
2:46 Now so it was that after three days they
found Him in the temple, sitting in the midst of
the teachers, both listening to them and asking
them questions.
2:47 And all who heard Him were astonished at
His understanding and answers.
2:48 So when they saw Him, they were amazed;
and His mother said to Him, "Yah’shua, why
have You done this to us? Look, Your father and
I have sought You anxiously."
2:49 And He said to them, "Why did you seek
Me? Did you not know that I must be about My
Father's business?"
2:50 But they did not understand the statement
which He spoke to them.
2:51 Then He went down with them and came to
Nazareth, and was subject to them, but His
mother kept all these things in her heart.
2:52 And Yah’shua increased in wisdom and
stature, and in favor with Yahweh and men.


Luke 3:
3:1 Now in the fifteenth year of the reign of
Tiberius Caesar, Pontius Pilate being governor of
Judea, Herod being tetrarch of Galilee, his
brother Philip tetrarch of Iturea and the region of
Trachonitis, and Lysanias tetrarch of Abilene,
3:2 while Annas and Caiaphas were high priests,
the word of Yahweh came to John the son of
Zacharias in the wilderness.
3:3 And he went into all the region around the
Jordan, preaching a baptism of repentance for the
remission of sins,
3:4 as it is written in the book of the words of
Isaiah the prophet, saying:
"The voice of one crying in the wilderness:
'Prepare the way of Yahweh;
Make His paths straight.
3:5 Every valley shall be filled
And every mountain and hill brought low;
The crooked places shall be made straight
And the rough ways smooth;
3:6 And all flesh shall see the salvation of
Yahweh.’”"
3:7 Then he said to the multitudes that came out
to be baptized by him, "Brood of vipers! Who
warned you to flee from the wrath to come?
3:8 "Therefore bear fruits worthy of repentance,
and do not begin to say to yourselves, 'We have
Abraham as our father.' For I say to you that
Yahweh is able to raise up children to Abraham
from these stones.
3:9 "And even now the ax is laid to the root of
the trees. Therefore every tree which does not
bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the
fire."
3:10 So the people asked him, saying, "What
shall we do then?"
3:11 He answered and said to them, "He who has
two tunics, let him give to him who has none;
and he who has food, let him do likewise."
3:12 Then tax collectors also came to be
baptized, and said to him, "Teacher, what shall
we do?"
3:13 And he said to them, "Collect no more than
what is appointed for you."
3:14 Likewise the soldiers asked him, saying,
"And what shall we do?" So he said to them, "Do
not intimidate anyone or accuse falsely, and be
content with your wages."
3:15 Now as the people were in expectation, and
all reasoned in their hearts about John, whether
he was the Messiah or not,
3:16 John answered, saying to all, "I indeed
baptize you with water; but One mightier than I
is coming, whose sandal strap I am not worthy to
loose. He will baptize you with His Holy Spirit
and fire.
3:17 "His winnowing fan is in His hand, and He
will thoroughly clean out His threshing floor,
and gather the wheat into His barn; but the chaff
He will burn with unquenchable fire."
3:18 And with many other exhortations he
preached to the people.
3:19 But Herod the tetrarch, being rebuked by
him concerning Herodias, his brother Philip's
wife, and for all the evils which Herod had done,
3:20 also added this, above all, that he shut John
up in prison.
3:21 When all the people were baptized, it came
to pass that Yah’shua also was baptized; and
while He prayed, the sky was opened.
3:22 And His Holy Spirit descended in bodily
form like a dove upon Him, and a voice came
from the sky which said, "You are My beloved
Son; in You I am well pleased."
3:23 Now Yah’shua Himself began His ministry
at about thirty years of age, being (as was
supposed) the son of Joseph, the son of Heli,
3:24 the son of Matthat, the son of Levi, the son
of Melchi, the son of Janna, the son of Joseph,
3:25 the son of Mattathiah, the son of Amos, the
son of Nahum, the son of Esli, the son of Naggai,
3:26 the son of Maath, the son of Mattathiah, the
son of Semei, the son of Joseph, the son of
Judah,
3:27 the son of Joannas, the son of Rhesa, the
son of Zerubbabel, the son of Shealtiel, the son
of Neri,
3:28 the son of Melchi, the son of Addi, the son
of Cosam, the son of Elmodam, the son of Er,
3:29 the son of Jose, the son of Eliezer, the son
of Jorim, the son of Matthat, the son of Levi,
3:30 the son of Simeon, the son of Judah, the son
of Joseph, the son of Jonan, the son of Eliakim,
3:31 the son of Melea, the son of Menan, the son
of Mattathah, the son of Nathan, the son of
David,
3:32 the son of Jesse, the son of Obed, the son of
Boaz, the son of Salmon, the son of Nahshon,
3:33 the son of Amminadab, the son of Ram, the
son of Hezron, the son of Perez, the son of
Judah,
3:34 the son of Jacob, the son of Isaac, the son of
Abraham, the son of Terah, the son of Nahor,
3:35 the son of Serug, the son of Reu, the son of
Peleg, the son of Eber, the son of Shelah,
3:36 the son of Cainan, the son of Arphaxad, the
son of Shem, the son of Noah, the son of
Lamech,
3:37 the son of Methuselah, the son of Enoch,
the son of Jared, the son of Mahalalel, the son of
Cainan,
3:38 the son of Enos, the son of Seth, the son of
Adam, the son of Yahweh.


Luke 4:
4:1 Then Yah’shua, being filled with His Holy
Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led by
His Spirit into the wilderness,
4:2 being tempted for forty days by the devil.
And in those days He ate nothing, and afterward,
when they had ended, He was hungry.
4:3 And the devil said to Him, "If You are the
Son of Yahweh, command this stone to become
bread."
4:4 But Yah’shua answered him, saying, "It is
written, 'Man shall not live by bread alone, but
by every word of Yahweh.' "
4:5 Then the devil, taking Him up on a high
mountain, showed Him all the kingdoms of the
world in a moment of time.
4:6 And the devil said to Him, "All this authority
I will give You, and their glory; for this has been
delivered to me, and I give it to whomever I
wish.
4:7 "Therefore, if You will worship before me,
all will be Yours."
4:8 And Yah’shua answered and said to him,
"Get behind Me, Satan! For it is written, 'You
shall worship Yahweh your God, and Him only
you shall serve.' "
4:9 Then he brought Him to Jerusalem, set Him
on the pinnacle of the temple, and said to Him,
"If You are the Son of Yahweh, throw Yourself
down from here.
4:10 "For it is written:
'He shall give His angels charge over you,
To keep you,'
4:11 "and,
'In their hands they shall bear you up,
Lest you dash your foot against a stone.' "
4:12 And Yah’shua answered and said to him, "It
has been said, 'You shall not tempt Yahweh your
God.' "
4:13 Now when the devil had ended every
temptation, he departed from Him until an
opportune time.
4:14 Then Yah’shua returned in the power of
His Spirit to Galilee, and news of Him went out
through all the surrounding region.
4:15 And He taught in their synagogues, being
glorified by all.
4:16 So He came to Nazareth, where He had
been brought up. And as His custom was, He
went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and
stood up to read.
4:17 And He was handed the book of the prophet
Isaiah. And when He had opened the book, He
found the place where it was written:
4:18 "The Spirit of Yahweh is upon Me,
Because He has anointed Me
To preach the gospel to the poor;
Luke 4:
He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,
To proclaim liberty to the captives
And recovery of sight to the blind,
To set at liberty those who are oppressed;
4:19 To proclaim the acceptable year of
Yahweh."
4:20 Then He closed the book, and gave it back
to the attendant and sat down. And the eyes of all
who were in the synagogue were fixed on Him.
4:21 And He began to say to them, "Today this
Scripture is fulfilled in your hearing."
4:22 So all bore witness to Him, and marveled at
the gracious words which proceeded out of His
mouth. And they said, "Is this not Joseph's son?"
4:23 He said to them, "You will surely say this
proverb to Me, 'Physician, heal yourself!
Whatever we have heard done in Capernaum, do
also here in Your country.' "
4:24 Then He said, "Assuredly, I say to you, no
prophet is accepted in his own country.
4:25 "But I tell you truly, many widows were in
Israel in the days of Elijah, when the sky was
shut up three years and six months, and there
was a great famine throughout all the land;
4:26 "but to none of them was Elijah sent except
to Zarephath, in the region of Sidon, to a woman
who was a widow.
4:27 "And many lepers were in Israel in the time
of Elisha the prophet, and none of them was
cleansed except Naaman the Syrian."
4:28 So all those in the synagogue, when they
heard these things, were filled with wrath,
4:29 and rose up and thrust Him out of the city;
and they led Him to the brow of the hill on
which their city was built, that they might throw
Him down over the cliff.
4:30 Then passing through the midst of them, He
went His way.
4:31 Then He went down to Capernaum, a city
of Galilee, and was teaching them on the
Sabbaths.
4:32 And they were astonished at His teaching,
for His word was with authority.
4:33 Now in the synagogue there was a man who
had a spirit of an unclean demon. And he cried
out with a loud voice,
4:34 saying, "Let us alone! What have we to do
with You, Yah’shua of Nazareth? Did You come
to destroy us? I know who You are-the Holy One
of Yahweh!"
4:35 But Yah’shua rebuked him, saying, "Be
quiet, and come out of him!" And when the
demon had thrown him in their midst, it came
out of him and did not hurt him.
4:36 Then they were all amazed and spoke
among themselves, saying, "What a word this is!
For with authority and power He commands the
unclean spirits, and they come out."
4:37 And the report about Him went out into
every place in the surrounding region.
4:38 Now He arose from the synagogue and
entered Simon's house. But Simon's wife's
mother was sick with a high fever, and they
made request of Him concerning her.
4:39 So He stood over her and rebuked the fever,
and it left her. And immediately she arose and
served them.
4:40 When the sun was setting, all those who
had any that were sick with various diseases
brought them to Him; and He laid His hands on
every one of them and healed them.
4:41 And demons also came out of many, crying
out and saying, "You are the Messiah, the Son of
Yahweh!" And He, rebuking them, did not allow
them to speak, for they knew that He was the
Messiah.
4:42 Now when it was day, He departed and
went into a deserted place. And the crowd sought
Him and came to Him, and tried to keep Him
from leaving them;
4:43 but He said to them, "I must preach the
kingdom of Yahweh to the other cities also,
because for this purpose I have been sent."
4:44 And He was preaching in the synagogues of
Galilee.


Luke 5:
5:1 So it was, as the multitude pressed about
Him to hear the word of Yahweh, that He stood
by the Lake of Gennesaret,
5:2 and saw two boats standing by the lake; but
the fishermen had gone from them and were
washing their nets.
5:3 Then He got into one of the boats, which was
Simon's, and asked him to put out a little from
the land. And He sat down and taught the
multitudes from the boat.
5:4 When He had stopped speaking, He said to
Simon, "Launch out into the deep and let down
your nets for a catch."
5:5 But Simon answered and said to Him,
"Master, we have toiled all night and caught
nothing; nevertheless at Your word I will let
down the net."
5:6 And when they had done this, they caught a
great number of fish, and their net was breaking.
5:7 So they signaled to their partners in the other
boat to come and help them. And they came and
filled both the boats, so that they began to sink.
5:8 When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at
Yah’shua's knees, saying, "Depart from me, for I
am a sinful man, O Lord!"
5:9 For he and all who were with him were
astonished at the catch of fish which they had
taken;
5:10 and so also were James and John, the sons
of Zebedee, who were partners with Simon. And
Yah’shua said to Simon, "Do not be afraid. From
now on you will catch men."
5:11 So when they had brought their boats to
land, they forsook all and followed Him.
5:12 And it happened when He was in a certain
city, that behold, a man who was full of leprosy
saw Yah’shua; and he fell on his face and
implored Him, saying, "Lord, if You are willing,
You can make me clean."
5:13 Then He put out His hand and touched him,
saying, "I am willing; be cleansed." Immediately
the leprosy left him.
5:14 And He charged him to tell no one, "But go
and show yourself to the priest, and make an
offering for your cleansing, as a testimony to
them, just as Moses commanded."
5:15 However, the report went around
concerning Him all the more; and great
multitudes came together to hear, and to be
healed by Him of their infirmities.
5:16 So He Himself often withdrew into the
wilderness and prayed.
5:17 Now it happened on a certain day, as He
was teaching, that there were Pharisees and
teachers of the law sitting by, who had come out
of every town of Galilee, Judea, and Jerusalem.
And the power of Yahweh was present to heal
them.
5:18 Then behold, men brought on a bed a man
who was paralyzed, whom they sought to bring
in and lay before Him.
5:19 And when they could not find how they
might bring him in, because of the crowd, they
went up on the housetop and let him down with
his bed through the tiling into the midst before
Yah’shua.
5:20 When He saw their faith, He said to him,
"Man, your sins are forgiven you."
5:21 And the scribes and the Pharisees began to
reason, saying, "Who is this who speaks
blasphemies? Who can forgive sins but Yahweh
alone?"
5:22 But when Yah’shua perceived their
thoughts, He answered and said to them, "Why
are you reasoning in your hearts?
5:23 "Which is easier, to say, 'Your sins are
forgiven you,' or to say, 'Rise up and walk'?
5:24 "But that you may know that the Son of
Man has power on earth to forgive sins"-He said
to the man who was paralyzed, "I say to you,
arise, take up your bed, and go to your house."
5:25 Immediately he rose up before them, took
up what he had been lying on, and departed to
his own house, glorifying Yahweh.
5:26 And they were all amazed, and they
glorified Yahweh and were filled with fear,
saying, "We have seen strange things today!"
5:27 After these things He went out and saw a
tax collector named Levi, sitting at the tax office.
And He said to him, "Follow Me."
5:28 So he left all, rose up, and followed Him.
5:29 Then Levi gave Him a great feast in his
own house. And there were a great number of tax
collectors and others who sat down with them.
5:30 And their scribes and the Pharisees
complained against His disciples, saying, "Why
do You eat and drink with tax collectors and
sinners?"
5:31 Yah’shua answered and said to them,
"Those who are well have no need of a
physician, but those who are sick.
5:32 "I have not come to call the righteous, but
sinners, to repentance."
5:33 Then they said to Him, "Why do the
disciples of John fast often and make prayers,
and likewise those of the Pharisees, but Yours
eat and drink?"
5:34 And He said to them, "Can you make the
friends of the bridegroom fast while the
bridegroom is with them?
5:35 "But the days will come when the
bridegroom will be taken away from them; then
they will fast in those days."
Luke 6:
5:36 Then He spoke a parable to them: "No one
puts a piece from a new garment on an old one;
otherwise the new makes a tear, and also the
piece that was taken out of the new does not
match the old.
5:37 "And no one puts new wine into old
wineskins; or else the new wine will burst the
wineskins and be spilled, and the wineskins will
be ruined.
5:38 "But new wine must be put into new
wineskins, and both are preserved.
5:39 "And no one, having drunk old wine,
immediately desires new; for he says, 'The old is
better.' "


Luke 6:
6:1 Now it happened on the second Sabbath after
the first that He went through the grainfields.
And His disciples plucked the heads of grain and
ate them, rubbing them in their hands.
6:2 And some of the Pharisees said to them,
"Why are you doing what is not lawful to do on
the Sabbath?"
6:3 But Yah’shua answering them said, "Have
you not even read this, what David did when he
was hungry, he and those who were with him:
6:4 "how he went into the house of Yahweh,
took and ate the showbread, and also gave some
to those with him, which is not lawful for any
but the priests to eat?"
6:5 And He said to them, "The Son of Man is
also Lord of the Sabbath."
6:6 Now it happened on another Sabbath, also,
that He entered the synagogue and taught. And a
man was there whose right hand was withered.
6:7 So the scribes and Pharisees watched Him
closely, whether He would heal on the Sabbath,
that they might find an accusation against Him.
6:8 But He knew their thoughts, and said to the
man who had the withered hand, "Arise and
stand here." And he arose and stood.
6:9 Then Yah’shua said to them, "I will ask you
one thing: Is it lawful on the Sabbath to do good
or to do evil, to save life or to destroy?"
6:10 And when He had looked around at them
all, He said to the man, "Stretch out your hand."
And he did so, and his hand was restored as
whole as the other.
6:11 But they were filled with rage, and
discussed with one another what they might do
to Yah’shua.
6:12 Now it came to pass in those days that He
went out to the mountain to pray, and continued
all night in prayer to Yahweh.
6:13 And when it was day, He called His
disciples to Himself; and from them He chose
twelve whom He also named apostles:
6:14 Simon, whom He also named Peter, and
Andrew his brother; James and John; Philip and
Bartholomew;
6:15 Matthew and Thomas; James the son of
Alphaeus, and Simon called the Zealot;
6:16 Judas the son of James, and Judas Iscariot
who later became a traitor.
6:17 And He came down with them and stood
on a level place with a crowd of His disciples
and a great multitude of people from all Judea
and Jerusalem, and from the seacoast of Tyre and
Sidon, who came to hear Him and be healed of
their diseases,
6:18 as well as those who were tormented with
unclean spirits. And they were healed.
6:19 And the whole multitude sought to touch
Him, for power went out from Him and healed
them all.
6:20 Then He lifted up His eyes toward His
disciples, and said:
"Blessed are you poor,
For yours is the kingdom of Yahweh.
6:21 Blessed are you who hunger now,
For you shall be filled.
Blessed are you who weep now,
For you shall laugh.
6:22 Blessed are you when men hate you,
And when they exclude you,
And revile you, and cast out your name as evil,
For the Son of Man's sake.
6:23 Rejoice in that day and leap for joy!
For indeed your reward is great in heaven,
For in like manner their fathers did to the
prophets.
6:24 "But woe to you who are rich,
For you have received your consolation.
6:25 Woe to you who are full,
For you shall hunger.
Woe to you who laugh now,
For you shall mourn and weep.
6:26 Woe to you when all men speak well of
you,
For so did their fathers to the false prophets.
6:27 "But I say to you who hear: Love your
enemies, do good to those who hate you,
6:28 "bless those who curse you, and pray for
those who spitefully use you.
6:29 "To him who strikes you on the one cheek,
offer the other also. And from him who takes
away your cloak, do not withhold your tunic
either.
6:30 "Give to everyone who asks of you. And
from him who takes away your goods do not ask
them back.
6:31 "And just as you want men to do to you,
you also do to them likewise.
6:32 "But if you love those who love you, what
credit is that to you? For even sinners love those
who love them.
6:33 "And if you do good to those who do good
to you, what credit is that to you? For even
sinners do the same.
6:34 "And if you lend to those from whom you
hope to receive back, what credit is that to you?
For even sinners lend to sinners to receive as
much back.
6:35 "But love your enemies, do good, and lend,
hoping for nothing in return; and your reward
will be great, and you will be sons of the Most
High. For He is kind to the unthankful and evil.
6:36 "Therefore be merciful, just as your Father
also is merciful.
6:37 "Judge not, and you shall not be judged.
Condemn not, and you shall not be condemned.
Forgive, and you will be forgiven.
6:38 "Give, and it will be given to you: good
measure, pressed down, shaken together, and
running over will be put into your bosom. For
with the same measure that you use, it will be
measured back to you."
6:39 And He spoke a parable to them: "Can the
blind lead the blind? Will they not both fall into
the ditch?
6:40 "A disciple is not above his teacher, but
everyone who is perfectly trained will be like his
teacher.
6:41 "And why do you look at the speck in your
brother's eye, but do not perceive the plank in
your own eye?
6:42 "Or how can you say to your brother,
'Brother, let me remove the speck that is in your
eye,' when you yourself do not see the plank that
is in your own eye? Hypocrite! First remove the
plank from your own eye, and then you will see
clearly to remove the speck that is in your
brother's eye.
6:43 "For a good tree does not bear bad fruit,
nor does a bad tree bear good fruit.
6:44 "For every tree is known by its own fruit.
For men do not gather figs from thorns, nor do
they gather grapes from a bramble bush.
6:45 "A good man out of the good treasure of his
heart brings forth good; and an evil man out of
the evil treasure of his heart brings forth evil. For
out of the abundance of the heart his mouth
speaks.
6:46 "But why do you call Me 'Lord, Lord,' and
do not do the things which I say?
6:47 "Whoever comes to Me, and hears My
sayings and does them, I will show you whom he
is like:
6:48 "He is like a man building a house, who dug
deep and laid the foundation on the rock. And
when the flood arose, the stream beat
vehemently against that house, and could not
shake it, for it was founded on the rock.
6:49 "But he who heard and did nothing is like a
man who built a house on the earth without a
foundation, against which the stream beat
vehemently; and immediately it fell. And the
ruin of that house was great."


Luke 7:
7:1 Now when He concluded all His sayings in
the hearing of the people, He entered
Capernaum.
7:2 And a certain centurion's servant, who was
dear to him, was sick and ready to die.
7:3 So when he heard about Yah’shua, he sent
elders of the Hebrews to Him, pleading with
Him to come and heal his servant.
7:4 And when they came to Yah’shua, they
begged Him earnestly, saying that the one for
whom He should do this was deserving,
7:5 "for he loves our nation, and has built us a
synagogue."
7:6 Then Yah’shua went with them. And when
He was already not far from the house, the
centurion sent friends to Him, saying to Him,
"Lord, do not trouble Yourself, for I am not
worthy that You should enter under my roof.
7:7 "Therefore I did not even think myself
worthy to come to You. But say the word, and
my servant will be healed.
7:8 "For I also am a man placed under authority,
having soldiers under me. And I say to one, 'Go,'
and he goes; and to another, 'Come,' and he
comes; and to my servant, 'Do this,' and he does
it."
7:9 When Yah’shua heard these things, He
marveled at him, and turned around and said to
the crowd that followed Him, "I say to you, I
have not found such great faith, not even in
Israel!"
7:10 And those who were sent, returning to the
house, found the servant well who had been sick.
7:11 Now it happened, the day after, that He
went into a city called Nain; and many of His
disciples went with Him, and a large crowd.
7:12 And when He came near the gate of the
city, behold, a dead man was being carried out,
the only son of his mother; and she was a widow.
And a large crowd from the city was with her.
7:13 When Yah’shua saw her, He had
compassion on her and said to her, "Do not
weep."
7:14 Then He came and touched the open coffin,
and those who carried him stood still. And He
said, "Young man, I say to you, arise."
7:15 So he who was dead sat up and began to
speak. And He presented him to his mother.
7:16 Then fear came upon all, and they glorified
Yahweh, saying, "A great prophet has risen up
among us"; and, "Yahweh visits His people."
7:17 And this report about Him went throughout
all Judea and all the surrounding region.
7:18 Then the disciples of John reported to him
concerning all these things.
7:19 And John, calling two of his disciples to
him, sent them to Yah’shua, saying, "Are You
the Coming One, or do we look for another?"
7:20 And the men came to Him and said, "John
the Baptist has sent us to You, saying, 'Are You
the Coming One, or do we look for another?' "
7:21 And that very hour He cured many of
infirmities, afflictions, and evil spirits; and to
many blind He gave sight.
7:22 Yah’shua answered and said to them, "Go
and tell John the things you have seen and heard:
that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are
cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, the
poor have the gospel preached to them.
7:23 "And blessed is he who is not offended
because of Me."
7:24 When the messengers of John had departed,
He began to speak to the multitudes concerning
John: "What did you go out into the wilderness
to see? A reed shaken by the wind?
7:25 "But what did you go out to see? A man
clothed in soft garments? Indeed those who are
gorgeously appareled and live in luxury are in
kings' courts.
7:26 "But what did you go out to see? A
prophet? Yes, I say to you, and more than a
prophet.
7:27 "This is he of whom it is written:
'Behold, I send My messenger before Your face,
Who will prepare Your way before You.'
7:28 "For I say to you, among those born of
women there is not a greater prophet than John
the Baptist; but he who is least in the kingdom of
Yahweh is greater than he."
7:29 And when all the people heard Him, even
the tax collectors justified Yahweh, having been
baptized with the baptism of John.
7:30 But the Pharisees and lawyers rejected the
will of Yahweh for themselves, not having been
baptized by him.
7:31 And Yah’shua said, "To what then shall I
liken the men of this generation, and what are
they like?
7:32 "They are like children sitting in the
marketplace and calling to one another, saying:
'We played the flute for you,
And you did not dance;
We mourned to you,
And you did not weep.'
7:33 "For John the Baptist came neither eating
bread nor drinking wine, and you say, 'He has a
demon.'
7:34 "The Son of Man has come eating and
drinking, and you say, 'Look, a glutton and a
winebibber, a friend of tax collectors and
sinners!'
7:35 "But wisdom is justified by all her
children."
7:36 Then one of the Pharisees asked Him to eat
with him. And He went to the Pharisee's house,
and sat down to eat.
7:37 And behold, a woman in the city who was a
sinner, when she knew that Yah’shua sat at the
table in the Pharisee's house, brought an
alabaster flask of fragrant oil,
7:38 and stood at His feet behind Him weeping;
and she began to wash His feet with her tears,
and wiped them with the hair of her head; and
she kissed His feet and anointed them with the
fragrant oil.
7:39 Now when the Pharisee who had invited
Him saw this, he spoke to himself, saying, "This
man, if He were a prophet, would know who and
what manner of woman this is who is touching
Him, for she is a sinner."
7:40 And Yah’shua answered and said to him,
"Simon, I have something to say to you." So he
said, "Teacher, say it."
7:41 "There was a certain creditor who had two
debtors. One owed five hundred denarii, and the
other fifty.
7:42 "And when they had nothing with which to
repay, he freely forgave them both. Tell Me,
therefore, which of them will love him more?"
7:43 Simon answered and said, "I suppose the
one whom he forgave more." And He said to
him, "You have rightly judged."
7:44 Then He turned to the woman and said to
Simon, "Do you see this woman? I entered your
house; you gave Me no water for My feet, but
she has washed My feet with her tears and wiped
them with the hair of her head.
7:45 "You gave Me no kiss, but this woman has
not ceased to kiss My feet since the time I came
in.
7:46 "You did not anoint My head with oil, but
this woman has anointed My feet with fragrant
oil.
7:47 "Therefore I say to you, her sins, which are
many, are forgiven, for she loved much. But to
whom little is forgiven, the same loves little."
7:48 Then He said to her, "Your sins are
forgiven."
7:49 And those who sat at the table with Him
began to say to themselves, "Who is this who
even forgives sins?"
7:50 Then He said to the woman, "Your faith has
saved you. Go in peace."


Luke 8:
8:1 Now it came to pass, afterward, that He went
through every city and village, preaching and
bringing the glad tidings of the kingdom of
Yahweh. And the twelve were with Him,
8:2 and certain women who had been healed of
evil spirits and infirmities-Mary called
Magdalene, out of whom had come seven
demons,
8:3 and Joanna the wife of Chuza, Herod's
steward, and Susanna, and many others who
provided for Him from their substance.
8:4 And when a great multitude had gathered,
and they had come to Him from every city, He
spoke by a parable:
8:5 "A sower went out to sow his seed. And as
he sowed, some fell by the wayside; and it was
trampled down, and the birds of the air devoured
it.
8:6 "Some fell on rock; and as soon as it sprang
up, it withered away because it lacked moisture.
8:7 "And some fell among thorns, and the thorns
sprang up with it and choked it.
8:8 "But others fell on good ground, sprang up,
and yielded a crop a hundredfold." When He had
said these things He cried, "He who has ears to
hear, let him hear!"
8:9 Then His disciples asked Him, saying,
"What does this parable mean?"
8:10 And He said, "To you it has been given to
know the mysteries of the kingdom of Yahweh,
but to the rest it is given in parables, that
'Seeing they may not see,
And hearing they may not understand.'
8:11 "Now the parable is this: The seed is the
word of Yahweh.
8:12 "Those by the wayside are the ones who
hear; then the devil comes and takes away the
word out of their hearts, lest they should believe
and be saved.
8:13 "But the ones on the rock are those who,
when they hear, receive the word with joy; and
these have no root, who believe for a while and
in time of temptation fall away.
8:14 "Now the ones that fell among thorns are
those who, when they have heard, go out and are
choked with cares, riches, and pleasures of life,
and bring no fruit to maturity.
8:15 "But the ones that fell on the good ground
are those who, having heard the word with a
noble and good heart, keep it and bear fruit with
patience.
8:16 "No one, when he has lit a lamp, covers it
with a vessel or puts it under a bed, but sets it on
a lampstand, that those who enter may see the
light.
8:17 "For nothing is secret that will not be
revealed, nor anything hidden that will not be
known and come to light.
8:18 "Therefore take heed how you hear. For
whoever has, to him more will be given; and
whoever does not have, even what he seems to
have will be taken from him."
8:19 Then His mother and brothers came to
Him, and could not approach Him because of the
crowd.
8:20 And it was told Him by some, who said,
"Your mother and Your brothers are standing
outside, desiring to see You."
8:21 But He answered and said to them, "My
mother and My brothers are these who hear the
word of Yahweh and do it."
8:22 Now it happened, on a certain day, that He
got into a boat with His disciples. And He said to
them, "Let us cross over to the other side of the
lake." And they launched out.
8:23 But as they sailed He fell asleep. And a
windstorm came down on the lake, and they
were filling with water, and were in jeopardy.
8:24 And they came to Him and awoke Him,
saying, "Master, Master, we are perishing!" Then
He arose and rebuked the wind and the raging of
the water. And they ceased, and there was a
calm.
8:25 But He said to them, "Where is your faith?"
And they were afraid, and marveled, saying to
one another, "Who can this be? For He
commands even the winds and water, and they
obey Him!"
8:26 Then they sailed to the country of the
Gadarenes, which is opposite Galilee.
8:27 And when He stepped out on the land, there
met Him a certain man from the city who had
demons for a long time. And he wore no clothes,
nor did he live in a house but in the tombs.
8:28 When he saw Yah’shua, he cried out, fell
down before Him, and with a loud voice said,
"What have I to do with You, Yah’shua, Son of
the Most High God? I beg You, do not torment
me!"
8:29 For He had commanded the unclean spirit
to come out of the man. For it had often seized
him, and he was kept under guard, bound with
chains and shackles; and he broke the bonds and
was driven by the demon into the wilderness.
8:30 Yah’shua asked him, saying, "What is your
name?" And he said, "Legion," because many
demons had entered him.
8:31 And they begged Him that He would not
command them to go out into the abyss.
8:32 Now a herd of many swine was feeding
there on the mountain. So they begged Him that
He would permit them to enter them. And He
permitted them.
8:33 Then the demons went out of the man and
entered the swine, and the herd ran violently
down the steep place into the lake and drowned.
8:34 When those who fed them saw what had
happened, they fled and told it in the city and in
the country.
8:35 Then they went out to see what had
happened, and came to Yah’shua, and found the
man from whom the demons had departed,
sitting at the feet of Yah’shua, clothed and in his
right mind. And they were afraid.
8:36 They also who had seen it told them by
what means he who had been demon-possessed
was healed.
8:37 Then the whole multitude of the
surrounding region of the Gadarenes asked Him
to depart from them, for they were seized with
great fear. And He got into the boat and returned.
8:38 Now the man from whom the demons had
departed begged Him that he might be with Him.
But Yah’shua sent him away, saying,
8:39 "Return to your house, and tell what great
things Yahweh has done for you." He went his
way and proclaimed throughout the whole city
what great things Yah’shua had done for him.
8:40 So it was, when Yah’shua returned, that the
multitude welcomed Him, for they were all
waiting for Him.
8:41 And behold, there came a man named
Jairus, and he was a ruler of the synagogue. And
he fell down at Yah’shua’s feet and begged Him
to come to his house,
8:42 for he had an only daughter about twelve
years of age, and she was dying. But as He went,
the multitudes thronged Him.
8:43 Now a woman, having a flow of blood for
twelve years, who had spent all her livelihood on
physicians and could not be healed by any,
8:44 came from behind and touched the border
of His garment. And immediately her flow of
blood stopped.
8:45 And Yah’shua said, "Who touched Me?"
When all denied it, Peter and those with him
said, "Master, the multitudes throng and press
You, and You say, 'Who touched Me?' "
8:46 But Yah’shua said, "Somebody touched
Me, for I perceived power going out from Me."
8:47 Now when the woman saw that she was not
hidden, she came trembling; and falling down
before Him, she declared to Him in the presence
of all the people the reason she had touched Him
and how she was healed immediately.
8:48 And He said to her, "Daughter, be of good
cheer; your faith has made you well. Go in
peace."
8:49 While He was still speaking, someone came
from the ruler of the synagogue's house, saying
to him, "Your daughter is dead. Do not trouble
the Teacher."
8:50 But when Yah’shua heard it, He answered
him, saying, "Do not be afraid; only believe, and
she will be made well."
8:51 When He came into the house, He permitted
no one to go in except Peter, James, and John,
and the father and mother of the girl.
8:52 Now all wept and mourned for her; but He
said, "Do not weep; she is not dead, but
sleeping."
8:53 And they laughed Him to scorn, knowing
that she was dead.
8:54 But He put them all outside, took her by the
hand and called, saying, "Little girl, arise."
8:55 Then her spirit returned, and she arose
immediately. And He commanded that she be
given something to eat.
8:56 And her parents were astonished, but He
charged them to tell no one what had happened.


Luke 9:
9:1 Then He called His twelve disciples together
and gave them power and authority over all
demons, and to cure diseases.
9:2 He sent them to preach the kingdom of
Yahweh and to heal the sick.
9:3 And He said to them, "Take nothing for the
journey, neither staffs nor bag nor bread nor
money; and do not have two tunics apiece.
9:4 "Whatever house you enter, stay there, and
from there depart.
9:5 "And whoever will not receive you, when
you go out of that city, shake off the very dust
from your feet as a testimony against them."

Luke 9:
9:6 So they departed and went through the
towns, preaching the gospel and healing
everywhere.
9:7 Now Herod the tetrarch heard of all that was
done by Him; and he was perplexed, because it
was said by some that John had risen from the
dead,
9:8 and by some that Elijah had appeared, and by
others that one of the old prophets had risen
again.
9:9 Herod said, "John I have beheaded, but who
is this of whom I hear such things?" So he sought
to see Him.
9:10 And the apostles, when they had returned,
told Him all that they had done. Then He took
them and went aside privately into a deserted
place belonging to the city called Bethsaida.
9:11 But when the multitudes knew it, they
followed Him; and He received them and spoke
to them about the kingdom of Yahweh, and
healed those who had need of healing.
9:12 When the day began to wear away, the
twelve came and said to Him, "Send the
multitude away, that they may go into the
surrounding towns and country, and lodge and
get provisions; for we are in a deserted place
here."
9:13 But He said to them, "You give them
something to eat." And they said, "We have no
more than five loaves and two fish, unless we go
and buy food for all these people."
9:14 For there were about five thousand men.
Then He said to His disciples, "Make them sit
down in groups of fifty."
9:15 And they did so, and made them all sit
down.
9:16 Then He took the five loaves and the two
fish, and looking up to the sky, He blessed and
broke them, and gave them to the disciples to set
before the multitude.
9:17 So they all ate and were filled, and twelve
baskets of the leftover fragments were taken up
by them.
9:18 And it happened, as He was alone praying,
that His disciples joined Him, and He asked
them, saying, "Who do the crowds say that I
am?"
9:19 So they answered and said, "John the
Baptist, but some say Elijah; and others say that
one of the old prophets has risen again."
9:20 He said to them, "But who do you say that I
am?" Peter answered and said, "The Messiah of
Yahweh."
9:21 And He strictly warned and commanded
them to tell this to no one,
9:22 saying, "The Son of Man must suffer many
things, and be rejected by the elders and chief
priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised
the third day."
9:23 Then He said to them all, "If anyone
desires to come after Me, let him deny himself,
and take up his burden daily, and follow Me.
9:24 "For whoever desires to save his life will
lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake
will save it.
9:25 "For what profit is it to a man if he gains the
whole world, and is himself destroyed or lost?
9:26 "For whoever is ashamed of Me and My
words, of him the Son of Man will be ashamed
when He comes in His own glory, and in His
Father's, and of the holy angels.
9:27 "But I tell you truly, there are some
standing here who shall not taste death till they
see the kingdom of Yahweh."
9:28 Now it came to pass, about eight days after
these sayings, that He took Peter, John, and
James and went up on the mountain to pray.
9:29 As He prayed, the appearance of His face
was altered, and His robe became white and
glistening.
9:30 And behold, two men talked with Him in a
vision, who were Moses and Elijah,
9:31 who appeared in glory and spoke of His
decease which He was about to accomplish at
Jerusalem.
9:32 But Peter and those with him were heavy
with sleep; and when they were fully awake, they
saw His glory and the vision of the two men who
stood with Him.
9:33 Then it happened, as they were parting from
Him, that Peter said to Yah’shua, "Master, it is
good for us to be here; and let us make three
tabernacles: one for You, one for Moses, and one
for Elijah"-not knowing what he said.
9:34 While he was saying this, a cloud came and
overshadowed them; and they were fearful as
they entered the cloud.
9:35 And a voice came out of the cloud, saying,
"This is My beloved Son. Hear Him!"
9:36 When the voice had ceased, Yah’shua was
found alone. But they kept quiet, and told no one
in those days any of the vision they had seen.
9:37 Now it happened on the next day, when
they had come down from the mountain, that a
great multitude met Him.
9:38 Suddenly a man from the multitude cried
out, saying, "Teacher, I implore You, look on my
son, for he is my only child.
9:39 "And behold, a spirit seizes him, and he
suddenly cries out; it convulses him so that he
foams at the mouth, and it departs from him with
great difficulty, bruising him.
9:40 "So I implored Your disciples to cast it out,
but they could not."
9:41 Then Yah’shua answered and said, "O
faithless and perverse generation, how long shall
I be with you and bear with you? Bring your son
here."
9:42 And as he was still coming, the demon
threw him down and convulsed him. Then
Yah’shua rebuked the unclean spirit, healed the
child, and gave him back to his father.
9:43 And they were all amazed at the majesty of
Yahweh. But while everyone marveled at all the
things which Yah’shua did, He said to His
disciples,
9:44 "Let these words sink down into your ears,
for the Son of Man is about to be betrayed into
the hands of men."
9:45 But they did not understand this saying, and
it was hidden from them so that they did not
perceive it; and they were afraid to ask Him
about this saying.
9:46 Then a dispute arose among them as to
which of them would be greatest.
9:47 And Yah’shua, perceiving the thought of
their heart, took a little child and set him by Him,
9:48 and said to them, "Whoever receives this
little child in My name receives Me; and
whoever receives Me receives Him who sent Me.
For he who is least among you all will be great."
9:49 Now John answered, "Master, we saw
someone casting out demons in Your name and
we forbade him because he does not follow us."
9:50 But Yah’shua said to him, "Do not forbid
him, for he who is not against us is on our side."
9:51 Now it came to pass, when the time had
come for Him to be received up, that He
steadfastly set His face to go to Jerusalem,
9:52 and sent messengers before His face. And
as they went, they entered a village of the
Samaritans, to prepare for Him.
9:53 But they did not receive Him, because His
face was set for the journey to Jerusalem.
9:54 And when His disciples James and John
saw this, they said, "Lord, do You want us to
command fire to come down from the sky and
consume them, just as Elijah did?"
9:55 But He turned and rebuked them, and said,
"You do not know what manner of spirit you are
of.
9:56 "For the Son of Man did not come to
destroy men's lives but to save them." And they
went to another village.
9:57 Now it happened as they journeyed on the
road, that someone said to Him, "Lord, I will
follow You wherever You go."
9:58 And Yah’shua said to him, "Foxes have
holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son
of Man has nowhere to lay His head."
9:59 Then He said to another, "Follow Me." But
he said, "Lord, let me first go and bury my
father."
9:60 Yah’shua said to him, "Let the dead bury
their own dead, but you go and preach the
kingdom of Yahweh."
9:61 And another also said, "Lord, I will follow
You, but let me first go and bid them farewell
who are at my house."
9:62 But Yah’shua said to him, "No one, having
put his hand to the plow, and looking back, is fit
for the kingdom of Yahweh."


Luke 10:
10:1 After these things the Messiah appointed
seventy others also, and sent them two by two
before His face into every city and place where
He Himself was about to go.
10:2 Then He said to them, "The harvest truly is
great, but the laborers are few; therefore pray to
Yahweh the Lord of the harvest to send out
laborers into His harvest.
10:3 "Go your way; behold, I send you out as
lambs among wolves.
10:4 "Carry neither money bag, knapsack, nor
sandals; and greet no one along the road.
10:5 "But whatever house you enter, first say,
'Peace to this house.'
10:6 "And if a son of peace is there, your peace
will rest on it; if not, it will return to you.
10:7 "And remain in the same house, eating and
drinking such things as they give, for the laborer
is worthy of his wages. Do not go from house to
house.
10:8 "Whatever city you enter, and they receive
you, eat such things as are set before you.
10:9 "And heal the sick there, and say to them,
'The kingdom of Yahweh has come near to you.'
10:10 "But whatever city you enter, and they do
not receive you, go out into its streets and say,
10:11 'The very dust of your city which clings to
us we wipe off against you. Nevertheless know
this, that the kingdom of Yahweh has come near
you.'
10:12 "But I say to you that it will be more
tolerable in that Day for Sodom than for that
city.
10:13 "Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you,
Bethsaida! For if the mighty works which were
done in you had been done in Tyre and Sidon,
they would have repented long ago, sitting in
sackcloth and ashes.
10:14 "But it will be more tolerable for Tyre and
Sidon at the judgment than for you.
10:15 "And you, Capernaum, who are exalted to
heaven, will be brought down to the grave.
10:16 "He who hears you hears Me, he who
rejects you rejects Me, and he who rejects Me
rejects Him who sent Me."
10:17 Then the seventy returned with joy,
saying, "Lord, even the demons are subject to us
in Your name."
10:18 And He said to them, "I saw Satan fall like
lightning from the sky.
10:19 "Behold, I give you the authority to
trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all
the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any
means hurt you.
10:20 "Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that
the spirits are subject to you, but rather rejoice
because your names are written in heaven."
10:21 In that hour Yah’shua rejoiced in His
Spirit and said, "I thank You, Father, Lord of
heaven and earth, that You have hidden these
things from the wise and prudent and revealed
them to babes. Even so, Father, for so it seemed
good in Your sight.
10:22 "All things have been delivered to Me by
My Father, and no one knows who the Son is
except the Father, and who the Father is except
the Son, and the one to whom the Son wills to
reveal Him."
10:23 Then He turned to His disciples and said
privately, "Blessed are the eyes which see the
things you see;
10:24 "for I tell you that many prophets and
kings have desired to see what you see, and have
not seen it, and to hear what you hear, and have
not heard it."
10:25 And behold, a certain lawyer stood up and
tested Him, saying, "Teacher, what shall I do to
inherit eternal life?"
10:26 He said to him, "What is written in the
law? What is your reading of it?"
10:27 So he answered and said, " 'You shall love
Yahweh your God with all your heart, with all
your spirit, with all your strength, and with all
your mind,' and 'your neighbor as yourself.' "
10:28 And He said to him, "You have answered
rightly; do this and you will live."
10:29 But he, wanting to justify himself, said to
Yah’shua, "And who is my neighbor?"
10:30 Then Yah’shua answered and said: "A
certain man went down from Jerusalem to
Jericho, and fell among thieves, who stripped
him of his clothing, wounded him, and departed,
leaving him half dead.
10:31 "Now by chance a certain priest came
down that road. And when he saw him, he
passed by on the other side.
10:32 "Likewise a Levite, when he arrived at the
place, came and looked, and passed by on the
other side.
10:33 "But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed,
came where he was. And when he saw him, he
had compassion.
10:34 "So he went to him and bandaged his
wounds, pouring on oil and wine; and he set him
on his own animal, brought him to an inn, and
took care of him.
10:35 "On the next day, when he departed, he
took out two denarii, gave them to the innkeeper,
and said to him, 'Take care of him; and whatever
more you spend, when I come again, I will repay
you.'
10:36 "So which of these three do you think was
neighbor to him who fell among the thieves?"
10:37 And he said, "He who showed mercy on
him." Then Yah’shua said to him, "Go and do
likewise."
10:38 Now it happened as they went that He
entered a certain village; and a certain woman
named Martha welcomed Him into her house.
10:39 And she had a sister called Mary, who also
sat at Yah’shua's feet and heard His word.
10:40 But Martha was distracted with much
serving, and she approached Him and said,
"Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me
to serve alone? Therefore tell her to help me."
10:41 And Yah’shua answered and said to her,
"Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled
about many things.
10:42 "But one thing is needed, and Mary has
chosen that good part, which will not be taken
away from her."


Luke 11:
11:1 Now it came to pass, as He was praying in a
certain place, when He ceased, that one of His
disciples said to Him, "Lord, teach us to pray, as
John also taught his disciples."
11:2 So He said to them, "When you pray, pray
like this:
Our Father in heaven,
Hallowed be Your name.
Your kingdom come.
Your will be done
On earth as it is in heaven.
11:3 Give us day by day our daily bread.
11:4 And forgive us our sins,
As we forgive everyone who is indebted to us.
And do not lead us into temptation,
But deliver us from the evil one."
11:5 And He said to them, "Which of you shall
have a friend, and go to him at midnight and say
to him, 'Friend, lend me three loaves;
11:6 'for a friend of mine has come to me on his
journey, and I have nothing to set before him';
11:7 "and he will answer from within and say,
'Do not trouble me; the door is now shut, and my
children are with me in bed; I cannot rise and
give to you'?
11:8 "I say to you, though he will not rise and
give to him because he is his friend, yet because
of his persistence he will rise and give him as
many as he needs.
11:9 "So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to
you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will
be opened to you.
11:10 "For everyone who asks receives, and he
who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will
be opened.
11:11 "If a son asks for bread from any father
among you, will he give him a stone? Or if he
asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent instead
of a fish?
11:12 "Or if he asks for an egg, will he offer him
a scorpion?
11:13 "If you then, being evil, know how to give
good gifts to your children, how much more will
your heavenly Father give His Holy Spirit to
those who ask Him!"
11:14 And He was casting out a demon, and it
was mute. So it was, when the demon had gone
out, that the mute spoke; and the multitudes
marveled.
11:15 But some of them said, "He casts out
demons by Beelzebub, the ruler of the demons."
11:16 Others, testing Him, sought from Him a
sign from heaven.
11:17 But He, knowing their thoughts, said to
them: "Every kingdom divided against itself is
brought to desolation, and a house divided
against a house falls.
11:18 "If Satan also is divided against himself,
how will his kingdom stand? Because you say I
cast out demons by Beelzebub.
11:19 "And if I cast out demons by Beelzebub,
by whom do your sons cast them out? Therefore
they will be your judges.
11:20 "But if I cast out demons with the finger of
Yahweh, surely the kingdom of Yahweh has
come upon you.
11:21 "When a strong man, fully armed, guards
his own palace, his goods are in peace.
11:22 "But when a stronger than he comes upon
him and overcomes him, he takes from him all
his armor in which he trusted, and divides his
spoils.
11:23 "He who is not with Me is against Me, and
he who does not gather with Me scatters.
11:24 "When an unclean spirit goes out of a
man, he goes through dry places, seeking rest;
and finding none, he says, 'I will return to my
house from which I came.'
11:25 "And when he comes, he finds it swept
and put in order.
11:26 "Then he goes and takes with him seven
other spirits more wicked than himself, and they
enter and dwell there; and the last state of that
man is worse than the first."
11:27 And it happened, as He spoke these
things, that a certain woman from the crowd
raised her voice and said to Him, "Blessed is the
womb that bore You, and the breasts which
nursed You!"
11:28 But He said, "More than that, blessed are
those who hear the word of Yahweh and keep
it!"
11:29 And while the crowds were thickly
gathered together, He began to say, "This is an
evil generation. It seeks a sign, and no sign will
be given to it except the sign of Jonah the
prophet.
11:30 "For as Jonah became a sign to the
Ninevites, so also the Son of Man will be to this
generation.
11:31 "The queen of the South will rise up in the
judgment with the men of this generation and
condemn them, for she came from the ends of
the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and
indeed a greater than Solomon is here.
11:32 "The men of Nineveh will rise up in the
judgment with this generation and condemn it,
for they repented at the preaching of Jonah; and
indeed a greater than Jonah is here.
11:33 "No one, when he has lit a lamp, puts it in
a secret place or under a basket, but on a
lampstand, that those who come in may see the
light.
11:34 "The lamp of the body is the eye.
Therefore, when your eye is good, your whole
body also is full of light. But when your eye is
bad, your body also is full of darkness.
11:35 "Therefore take heed that the light which
is in you is not darkness.
11:36 "If then your whole body is full of light,
having no part dark, the whole body will be full
of light, as when the bright shining of a lamp
gives you light."
11:37 And as He spoke, a certain Pharisee asked
Him to dine with him. So He went in and sat
down to eat.
11:38 When the Pharisee saw it, he marveled that
He had not first washed before dinner.
11:39 Then the Messiah said to him, "Now you
Pharisees make the outside of the cup and dish
clean, but your inward part is full of greed and
wickedness.
11:40 "Foolish ones! Did not He who made the
outside make the inside also?
11:41 "But rather give alms of such things as you
have; then indeed all things are clean [disease
inhibiting] to you.
11:42 "But woe to you Pharisees! For you tithe
mint and rue and all manner of herbs, and pass
by justice and the love of Yahweh. These you
ought to have done, without leaving the others
undone.
11:43 "Woe to you Pharisees! For you love the
best seats in the synagogues and greetings in the
marketplaces.
11:44 "Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees,
hypocrites! For you are like graves which are not
seen, and the men who walk over them are not
aware of them."
11:45 Then one of the lawyers answered and said
to Him, "Teacher, by saying these things You
reproach us also."
11:46 And He said, "Woe to you also, lawyers!
For you load men with burdens hard to bear, and
you yourselves do not touch the burdens with
one of your fingers.
11:47 "Woe to you! For you build the tombs of
the prophets, and your fathers killed them.
11:48 "In fact, you bear witness that you approve
the deeds of your fathers; for they indeed killed
them, and you build their tombs.
11:49 "Therefore the wisdom of Yahweh also
said, 'I will send them prophets and apostles, and
some of them they will kill and persecute,'
11:50 "that the blood of all the prophets which
was shed from the foundation of the world may
be required of this generation,
11:51 "from the blood of Abel to the blood of
Zechariah who perished between the altar and
the temple. Yes, I say to you, it shall be required
of this generation.
11:52 "Woe to you lawyers! For you have taken
away the key of knowledge. You did not enter in
yourselves, and those who were entering in you
hindered."
11:53 And as He said these things to them, the
scribes and the Pharisees began to assail Him
vehemently, and to cross-examine Him about
many things,
11:54 lying in wait for Him, and seeking to catch
Him in something He might say, that they might
accuse Him.

Luke 12:
12:1 In the meantime, when an innumerable
multitude of people had gathered together, so
that they trampled one another, He began to say
to His disciples first of all, "Beware of the leaven
of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy.
12:2 "For there is nothing covered that will not
be revealed, nor hidden that will not be known.
12:3 "Therefore whatever you have spoken in the
dark will be heard in the light, and what you
have spoken in the ear in inner rooms will be
proclaimed on the housetops.
12:4 "And I say to you, My friends, do not be
afraid of those who kill the body, and after that
have no more that they can do.
12:5 "But I will show you whom you should
fear: Fear Him who, after He has killed, has
power to cast into the fire in the Valley of
Hinnom [city dump]; yes, I say to you, respect
Him!
12:6 "Are not five sparrows sold for two copper
coins? And not one of them is forgotten before
Yahweh.
12:7 "But the very hairs of your head are all
numbered. Do not fear therefore; you are of more
value than many sparrows.
12:8 "Also I say to you, whoever confesses Me
before men, him the Son of Man also will
confess before the angels of Yahweh.
12:9 "But he who denies Me before men will be
denied before the angels of Yahweh.
12:10 "And anyone who speaks a word against
the Son of Man, it will be forgiven him; but to
him who blasphemes against His Holy Spirit, it
will not be forgiven.
12:11 "Now when they bring you to the
synagogues and magistrates and authorities, do
not worry about how or what you should answer,
or what you should say.
12:12 "For His Holy Spirit will teach you in that
very hour what you ought to say."
12:13 Then one from the crowd said to Him,
"Teacher, tell my brother to divide the
inheritance with me."
12:14 But He said to him, "Man, who made Me a
judge or an arbitrator over you?"
12:15 And He said to them, "Take heed and
beware of covetousness, for one's life does not
consist in the abundance of the things he
possesses."
Luke 12:
12:16 Then He spoke a parable to them, saying:
"The ground of a certain rich man yielded
plentifully.
12:17 "And he thought within himself, saying,
'What shall I do, since I have no room to store
my crops?'
12:18 "So he said, 'I will do this: I will pull down
my barns and build greater, and there I will store
all my crops and my goods.
12:19 'And I will say to my body, "Body, you
have many goods laid up for many years; take
your ease; eat, drink, and be merry." '
12:20 "But Yahweh said to him, 'Fool! This
night your spirit will be required of you; then
whose will those things be which you have
provided?'
12:21 "So is he who lays up treasure for himself,
and is not rich toward Yahweh."
12:22 Then He said to His disciples, "Therefore
I say to you, do not worry about your life, what
you will eat; nor about the body, what you will
put on.
12:23 "Life is more than food, and the body is
more than clothing.
12:24 "Consider the ravens, for they neither sow
nor reap, which have neither storehouse nor
barn; and Yahweh feeds them. Of how much
more value are you than the birds?
12:25 "And which of you by worrying can add
one cubit to his stature?
12:26 "If you then are not able to do the least,
why are you anxious for the rest?
12:27 "Consider the lilies, how they grow: they
neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you, even
Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one
of these.
12:28 "If then Yahweh so clothes the grass,
which today is in the field and tomorrow is
thrown into the oven, how much more will He
clothe you, O you of little faith?
12:29 "And do not seek what you should eat or
what you should drink or have an anxious mind.
12:30 "For all these things the nations of the
world seek after, and your Father knows that you
need these things.
12:31 "But seek the kingdom of Yahweh, and all
these things shall be added to you.
12:32 "Do not fear, little flock, for it is your
Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
12:33 "Sell what you have and give alms;
provide yourselves money bags which do not
grow old, a treasure in the heavens that does not
fail, where no thief approaches nor moth
destroys.
12:34 "For where your treasure is, there your
heart will be also.
12:35 "Let your waist be girded and your lamps
burning;
12:36 "and you yourselves be like men who wait
for their master, when he will return from the
wedding, that when he comes and knocks they
may open to him immediately.
12:37 "Blessed are those servants whom the
master, when he comes, will find watching.
Assuredly, I say to you that he will gird himself
and have them sit down to eat, and will come
and serve them.
12:38 "And if he should come in the second
watch, or come in the third watch, and find them
so, blessed are those servants.
12:39 "But know this, that if the master of the
house had known what hour the thief would
come, he would have watched and not allowed
his house to be broken into.
12:40 "Therefore you also be ready, for the Son
of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect."
12:41 Then Peter said to Him, "Lord, do You
speak this parable only to us, or to all people?"
12:42 And the Messiah said, "Who then is that
faithful and wise steward, whom his master will
make ruler over his household, to give them their
portion of food in due season?
12:43 "Blessed is that servant whom his master
will find so doing when he comes.
12:44 "Truly, I say to you that he will make him
ruler over all that he has.
12:45 "But if that servant says in his heart, 'My
master is delaying his coming,' and begins to
beat the male and female servants, and to eat and
drink and be drunk,
12:46 "the master of that servant will come on a
day when he is not looking for him, and at an
hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in
two and appoint him his portion with the
unbelievers.
12:47 "And that servant who knew his master's
will, and did not prepare himself or do according
to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes.
12:48 "But he who did not know, yet committed
things deserving of stripes, shall be beaten with
few. For everyone to whom much is given, from
him much will be required; and to whom much
has been committed, of him they will ask the
more.
12:49 "I came to send fire on the earth, and how
I wish it were already kindled!
12:50 "But I have a baptism to be baptized with,
and how distressed I am till it is accomplished!
12:51 "Do you suppose that I came to give peace
on earth? I tell you, not at all, but rather division.
12:52 "For from now on five in one house will
be divided: three against two, and two against
three.
12:53 "Father will be divided against son and son
against father, mother against daughter and
daughter against mother, mother-in-law against
her daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against
her mother-in-law."
12:54 Then He also said to the multitudes,
"Whenever you see a cloud rising out of the
west, immediately you say, 'A shower is
coming'; and so it is.
12:55 "And when you see the south wind blow,
you say, 'There will be hot weather'; and there is.
12:56 "Hypocrites! You can discern the face of
the sky and of the earth, but how is it you do not
discern this time?
12:57 "Yes, and why, even of yourselves, do
you not judge what is right?
12:58 "When you go with your adversary to the
magistrate, make every effort along the way to
settle with him, lest he drag you to the judge, the
judge deliver you to the officer, and the officer
throw you into prison.
12:59 "I tell you, you shall not depart from there
till you have paid the very last mite."


Luke 13:
13:1 There were present at that season some who
told Him about the Galileans whose blood Pilate
had mingled with their sacrifices.
13:2 And Yah’shua answered and said to them,
"Do you suppose that these Galileans were worse
sinners than all other Galileans, because they
suffered such things?
13:3 "I tell you, no; but unless you repent you
will all likewise perish.
13:4 "Or those eighteen on whom the tower in
Siloam fell and killed them, do you think that
they were worse sinners than all other men who
dwelt in Jerusalem?
13:5 "I tell you, no; but unless you repent you
will all likewise perish."
13:6 He also spoke this parable: "A certain man
had a fig tree planted in his vineyard, and he
came seeking fruit on it and found none.
13:7 "Then he said to the keeper of his vineyard,
'Look, for three years I have come seeking fruit
on this fig tree and find none. Cut it down; why
does it use up the ground?'
13:8 "But he answered and said to him, 'Sir, let it
alone this year also, until I dig around it and
fertilize it.
13:9 'And if it bears fruit, well. But if not, after
that you can cut it down.' "
13:10 Now He was teaching in one of the
synagogues on the Sabbath.
13:11 And behold, there was a woman who had a
spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bent
over and could in no way raise herself up.
13:12 But when Yah’shua saw her, He called her
to Him and said to her, "Woman, you are loosed
from your infirmity."
13:13 And He laid His hands on her, and
immediately she was made straight, and glorified
Yahweh.
13:14 But the ruler of the synagogue answered
with indignation, because Yah’shua had healed
on the Sabbath; and he said to the crowd, "There
are six days on which men ought to work;
therefore come and be healed on them, and not
on the Sabbath day."
13:15 The Messiah then answered him and said,
"Hypocrite! Does not each one of you on the
Sabbath loose his ox or donkey from the stall,
and lead it away to water it?
13:16 "So ought not this woman, being a
daughter of Abraham, whom Satan has boundthink
of it-for eighteen years, be loosed from this
bond on the Sabbath?"
13:17 And when He said these things, all His
adversaries were put to shame; and all the
multitude rejoiced for all the glorious things that
were done through Him.
13:18 Then He said, "What is the kingdom of
Yahweh like? And to what shall I compare it?
13:19 "It is like a mustard seed, which a man
took and put in his garden; and it grew and
became a large tree, and the birds of the air
nested in its branches."
13:20 And again He said, "To what shall I liken
the kingdom of Yahweh?
13:21 "It is like leaven, which a woman took and
hid in three measures of meal till it was all
leavened."
13:22 And He went through the cities and
villages, teaching, and journeying toward
Jerusalem.
13:23 Then one said to Him, "Lord, are there few
who are saved?" And He said to them,
13:24 "Strive to enter through the narrow gate,
for many, I say to you, will seek to enter and will
not be able.
13:25 "When once the Master of the house has
risen up and shut the door, and you begin to
stand outside and knock at the door, saying,
'Lord, Lord, open for us,' and He will answer and
say to you, 'I do not know you, where you are
from,'
13:26 "then you will begin to say, 'We ate and
drank in Your presence, and You taught in our
streets.'
13:27 "But He will say, 'I tell you I do not know
you, where you are from. Depart from Me, all
you workers of iniquity.'
13:28 "There will be weeping and gnashing of
teeth, when you see Abraham and Isaac and
Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of
Yahweh, and yourselves thrust out.
13:29 "They will come from the east and the
west, from the north and the south, and sit down
in the kingdom of Yahweh.
13:30 "And indeed there are last who will be
first, and there are first who will be last."
13:31 On that very day some Pharisees came,
saying to Him, "Get out and depart from here,
for Herod wants to kill You."
13:32 And He said to them, "Go, tell that fox,
'Behold, I cast out demons and perform cures
today and tomorrow, and the third day I shall be
perfected.'
13:33 "Nevertheless I must journey today,
tomorrow, and the day following; for it cannot
be that a prophet should perish outside of
Jerusalem.
13:34 "O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one who
kills the prophets and stones those who are sent
to her! How often I wanted to gather your

they were worse sinners than all other men who
dwelt in Jerusalem?
13:5 "I tell you, no; but unless you repent you
will all likewise perish."
13:6 He also spoke this parable: "A certain man
had a fig tree planted in his vineyard, and he
came seeking fruit on it and found none.
13:7 "Then he said to the keeper of his vineyard,
'Look, for three years I have come seeking fruit

13:10 Now He was teaching in one of the
synagogues on the Sabbath.
13:11 And behold, there was a woman who had a

13:12 But when Yah’shua saw her, He called her

children together, as a hen gathers her brood
under her wings, but you were not willing!
13:35 "See! Your house is left to you desolate;
and assuredly, I say to you, you shall not see Me
until the time comes when you say, 'Blessed is
He who comes in the name of Yahweh!'


Luke 14:
14:1 Now it happened, as He went into the house
of one of the rulers of the Pharisees to eat bread
on the Sabbath, that they watched Him closely.
14:2 And behold, there was a certain man before
Him who had dropsy.
14:3 And Yah’shua, answering, spoke to the
lawyers and Pharisees, saying, "Is it lawful to
heal on the Sabbath?"
14:4 But they kept silent. And He took him and
healed him, and let him go.
14:5 Then He answered them, saying, "Which of
you, having a donkey or an ox that has fallen
into a pit, will not immediately pull him out on
the Sabbath day?"
14:6 And they could not answer Him regarding
these things.
14:7 So He told a parable to those who were
invited, when He noted how they chose the best
places, saying to them:
14:8 "When you are invited by anyone to a
wedding feast, do not sit down in the best place,
lest one more honorable than you be invited by
him;
14:9 "and he who invited you and him come and
say to you, 'Give place to this man,' and then you
begin with shame to take the lowest place.
14:10 "But when you are invited, go and sit
down in the lowest place, so that when he who
invited you comes he may say to you, 'Friend, go
up higher.' Then you will have glory in the
presence of those who sit at the table with you.
14:11 "For whoever exalts himself will be
humbled, and he who humbles himself will be
exalted."
14:12 Then He also said to him who invited
Him, "When you give a dinner or a supper, do
not ask your friends, your brothers, your
relatives, nor rich neighbors, lest they also invite
you back, and you be repaid.
14:13 "But when you give a feast, invite the
poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind.
14:14 "And you will be blessed, because they
cannot repay you; for you shall be repaid at the
resurrection of the just."
14:15 Now when one of those who sat at the
table with Him heard these things, he said to
Him, "Blessed is he who shall eat bread in the
kingdom of Yahweh!"
14:16 Then He said to him, "A certain man gave
a great supper and invited many,
14:17 "and sent his servant at supper time to say
to those who were invited, 'Come, for all things
are now ready.'
14:18 "But they all with one accord began to
make excuses. The first said to him, 'I have
bought a piece of ground, and I must go and see
it. I ask you to have me excused.'
14:19 "And another said, 'I have bought five
yoke of oxen, and I am going to test them. I ask
you to have me excused.'
14:20 "Still another said, 'I have married a wife,
and therefore I cannot come.'
14:21 "So that servant came and reported these
things to his master. Then the master of the
house, being angry, said to his servant, 'Go out
quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and
bring in here the poor and the maimed and the
lame and the blind.'
14:22 "And the servant said, 'Master, it is done
as you commanded, and still there is room.'
14:23 "Then the master said to the servant, 'Go
out into the highways and hedges, and compel
them to come in, that my house may be filled.
14:24 'For I say to you that none of those men
who were invited shall taste my supper.' "
14:25 Now great multitudes went with Him.
And He turned and said to them,
14:26 "If anyone comes to Me and does not hate
his father and mother, wife and children, brothers
and sisters, yes, and his own life also, he cannot
be My disciple.
14:27 "And whoever does not bear his burden
and come after Me cannot be My disciple.
14:28 "For which of you, intending to build a
tower, does not sit down first and count the cost,
whether he has enough to finish it-
14:29 "lest, after he has laid the foundation, and
is not able to finish, all who see it begin to mock
him,
14:30 "saying, 'This man began to build and was
not able to finish.'
14:31 "Or what king, going to make war against
another king, does not sit down first and consider
whether he is able with ten thousand to meet him
who comes against him with twenty thousand?
14:32 "Or else, while the other is still a great
way off, he sends a delegation and asks
conditions of peace.
14:33 "So likewise, whoever of you does not
forsake all that he has cannot be My disciple.
14:34 "Salt is good; but if the salt has lost its
flavor, how shall it be seasoned?
14:35 "It is neither fit for the land nor for the
dunghill, but men throw it out. He who has ears
to hear, let him hear!"


Luke 15:
15:1 Then all the tax collectors and the sinners
drew near to Him to hear Him.
15:2 And the Pharisees and scribes complained,
saying, "This Man receives sinners and eats with
them."
15:3 So He spoke this parable to them, saying:
15:4 "What man of you, having a hundred sheep,
if he loses one of them, does not leave the
ninety-nine in the wilderness, and go after the
one which is lost until he finds it?
15:5 "And when he has found it, he lays it on his
shoulders, rejoicing.
15:6 "And when he comes home, he calls
together his friends and neighbors, saying to
them, 'Rejoice with me, for I have found my
sheep which was lost!'
15:7 "I say to you that likewise there will be
more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents
than over ninety-nine just persons who need no
repentance.
15:8 "Or what woman, having ten silver coins, if
she loses one coin, does not light a lamp, sweep
the house, and search carefully until she finds it?
15:9 "And when she has found it, she calls her
friends and neighbors together, saying, 'Rejoice
with me, for I have found the piece which I lost!'
15:10 "Likewise, I say to you, there is joy in the
presence of the angels of Yahweh over one
sinner who repents."
15:11 Then He said: "A certain man had two
sons.
15:12 "And the younger of them said to his
father, 'Father, give me the portion of goods that
falls to me.' So he divided to them his livelihood.
15:13 "And not many days after, the younger son
gathered all together, journeyed to a far country,
and there wasted his possessions with prodigal
living.
15:14 "But when he had spent all, there arose a
severe famine in that land, and he began to be in
want.
15:15 "Then he went and joined himself to a
citizen of that country, and he sent him into his
fields to feed swine.
15:16 "And he would gladly have filled his
stomach with the pods that the swine ate, and no
one gave him anything.
15:17 "But when he came to himself, he said,
'How many of my father's hired servants have
bread enough and to spare, and I perish with
hunger!
15:18 'I will arise and go to my father, and will
say to him, "Father, I have sinned against heaven
and before you,
15:19 "and I am no longer worthy to be called
your son. Make me like one of your hired
servants." '
15:20 "And he arose and came to his father. But
when he was still a great way off, his father saw
him and had compassion, and ran and fell on his
neck and kissed him.
15:21 "And the son said to him, 'Father, I have
sinned against heaven and in your sight, and am
no longer worthy to be called your son.'
15:22 "But the father said to his servants, 'Bring
out the best robe and put it on him, and put a ring
on his hand and sandals on his feet.
15:23 'And bring the fatted calf here and kill it,
and let us eat and be merry;
15:24 'for this my son was dead and is alive
again; he was lost and is found.' And they began
to be merry.
15:25 "Now his older son was in the field. And
as he came and drew near to the house, he heard
music and dancing.
15:26 "So he called one of the servants and
asked what these things meant.
15:27 "And he said to him, 'Your brother has
come, and because he has received him safe and
sound, your father has killed the fatted calf.'
15:28 "But he was angry and would not go in.
Therefore his father came out and pleaded with
him.
15:29 "So he answered and said to his father,
'Lo, these many years I have been serving you; I
never transgressed your commandment at any
time; and yet you never gave me a young goat,
that I might make merry with my friends.
15:30 'But as soon as this son of yours came,
who has devoured your livelihood with harlots,
you killed the fatted calf for him.'
15:31 "And he said to him, 'Son, you are always
with me, and all that I have is yours.
15:32 'It was right that we should make merry
and be glad, for your brother was dead and is
alive again, and was lost and is found.' "
 

Luke 16:
16:1 He also said to His disciples: "There was a
certain rich man who had a steward, and an
accusation was brought to him that this man was
wasting his goods.
16:2 "So he called him and said to him, 'What is
this I hear about you? Give an account of your
stewardship, for you can no longer be steward.'
16:3 "Then the steward said within himself,
'What shall I do? For my master is taking the
stewardship away from me. I cannot dig; I am
ashamed to beg.
16:4 'I have resolved what to do, that when I am
put out of the stewardship, they may receive me
into their houses.'
16:5 "So he called every one of his master's
debtors to him, and said to the first, 'How much
do you owe my master?'
16:6 "And he said, 'A hundred measures of oil.'
So he said to him, 'Take your bill, and sit down
quickly and write fifty.'
16:7 "Then he said to another, 'And how much
do you owe?' So he said, 'A hundred measures of
wheat.' And he said to him, 'Take your bill, and
write eighty.'
16:8 "So the master commended the unjust
steward because he had dealt shrewdly. For the
sons of this world are more shrewd in their
generation than the sons of light.
16:9 "And I say to you, make friends for
yourselves by unrighteous mammon, that when
you fail, they may receive you into an everlasting
home.
16:10 "He who is faithful in what is least is
faithful also in much; and he who is unjust in
what is least is unjust also in much.
16:11 "Therefore if you have not been faithful in
the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to
your trust the true riches?
16:12 "And if you have not been faithful in what
is another's who will give you what is your own?
16:13 "No servant can serve two masters; for
either he will hate the one and love the other, or
else he will be loyal to the one and despise the
other. You cannot serve Yahweh and mammon."
16:14 Now the Pharisees, who were lovers of
money, also heard all these things, and they
derided Him.
16:15 And He said to them, "You are those who
justify yourselves before men, but Yahweh
knows your hearts. For what is highly esteemed
among men is abominable in Yahweh’s sight.
16:16 "The law and the prophets were until John.
Since that time the kingdom of Yahweh has been
preached, and everyone is pressing into it.
16:17 "And it is easier for heaven and earth to
pass away than for one tittle of the law to fail.
16:18 "Whoever divorces his wife and marries
another commits adultery; and whoever marries
her who is divorced from her husband commits
adultery.
16:19 "There was a certain rich man who was
clothed in purple and fine linen and fared
sumptuously every day.
16:20 "But there was a certain beggar named
Lazarus, full of sores, who was laid at his gate,
16:21 "desiring to be fed with the crumbs which
fell from the rich man's table. Moreover the dogs
came and licked his sores.
16:22 "So it was that the beggar died, and was
carried by the angels to Abraham's bosom. The
rich man also died and was buried.
16:23 "And being punished in the fire in the
Valley of Hinnom [city dump], he lifted up his
eyes and saw Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in
his bosom.
16:24 "Then he cried and said, 'Father Abraham,
have mercy on me, and send Lazarus that he may
dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my
tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.'
16:25 "But Abraham said, 'Son, remember that in
your lifetime you received your good things, and
likewise Lazarus evil things; but now he is
comforted and you are punished.
16:26 'And besides all this, between us and you
there is a great gulf fixed, so that those who want

Luke 16:
to pass from here to you cannot, nor can those
from there pass to us.'
16:27 "Then he said, 'I beg you therefore, father,
that you would send him to my father's house,
16:28 'for I have five brothers, that he may
testify to them, lest they also come to this place
of punishment.'
16:29 "Abraham said to him, 'They have Moses
and the prophets; let them hear them.'
16:30 "And he said, 'No, father Abraham; but if
one goes to them from the dead, they will
repent.'
16:31 "But he said to him, 'If they do not hear
Moses and the prophets, neither will they be
persuaded though one rise from the dead.' "


Luke 17:
17:1 Then He said to the disciples, "It is
impossible that no offenses should come, but
woe to him through whom they do come!
17:2 "It would be better for him if a millstone
were hung around his neck, and he were thrown
into the sea, than that he should offend one of
these little ones.
17:3 "Take heed to yourselves. If your brother
sins against you, rebuke him; and if he repents,
forgive him.
17:4 "And if he sins against you seven times in a
day, and seven times in a day returns to you,
saying, 'I repent,' you shall forgive him."
17:5 And the apostles said to the Messiah,
"Increase our faith."
17:6 So the Messiah said, "If you have faith as a
mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree,
'Be pulled up by the roots and be planted in the
sea,' and it would obey you.
17:7 "And which of you, having a servant
plowing or tending sheep, will say to him when
he has come in from the field, 'Come at once and
sit down to eat'?
17:8 "But will he not rather say to him, 'Prepare
something for my supper, and gird yourself and
serve me till I have eaten and drunk, and
afterward you will eat and drink'?
17:9 "Does he thank that servant because he did
the things that were commanded him? I think
not.
17:10 "So likewise you, when you have done all
those things which you are commanded, say, 'We
are unprofitable servants. We have done what
was our duty to do.' "
17:11 Now it happened as He went to Jerusalem
that He passed through the midst of Samaria and
Galilee.
17:12 Then as He entered a certain village, there
met Him ten men who were lepers, who stood
afar off.
17:13 And they lifted up their voices and said,
"Yah’shua, Master, have mercy on us!"
17:14 So when He saw them, He said to them,
"Go, show yourselves to the priests." And so it
was that as they went, they were cleansed.
17:15 And one of them, when he saw that he was
healed, returned, and with a loud voice glorified
Yahweh,
17:16 and fell down on his face at His feet,
giving Him thanks. And he was a Samaritan.
17:17 So Yah’shua answered and said, "Were
there not ten cleansed? But where are the nine?
17:18 "Were there not any found who returned to
give glory to Yahweh except this foreigner?"
17:19 And He said to him, "Arise, go your way.
Your faith has made you well."
17:20 Now when He was asked by the Pharisees
when the kingdom of Yahweh would come, He
answered them and said, "The kingdom of
Yahweh does not come with observation;
17:21 "nor will they say, 'See here!' or 'See
there!' For indeed, the kingdom of Yahweh is
within you."
17:22 Then He said to the disciples, "The days
will come when you will desire to see one of the
days of the Son of Man, and you will not see it.
17:23 "And they will say to you, 'Look here!' or
'Look there!' Do not go after them or follow
them.
17:24 "For as the lightning that flashes out of
one part under the sky and shines to the other
part under the sky, so also the Son of Man will
be in His day.
17:25 "But first He must suffer many things and
be rejected by this generation.
17:26 "And as it was in the days of Noah, so it
will be also in the days of the Son of Man:
17:27 "They ate, they drank, they married wives,
they were given in marriage, until the day that
Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and
destroyed them all.
17:28 "Likewise as it was also in the days of Lot:
They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold,
they planted, they built;
17:29 "but on the day that Lot went out of
Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from the sky
and destroyed them all.
17:30 "Even so will it be in the day when the
Son of Man is revealed.
17:31 "In that day, he who is on the housetop,
and his goods are in the house, let him not come
down to take them away. And likewise the one
who is in the field, let him not turn back.
17:32 "Remember Lot's wife.
17:33 "Whoever seeks to save his life will lose it,
and whoever loses his life will preserve it.
17:34 "I tell you, in that night there will be two
men in one bed: the one will be taken and the
other will be left.
17:35 "Two women will be grinding together:
the one will be taken and the other left.
17:36 "Two men will be in the field: the one will
be taken and the other left."
17:37 And they answered and said to Him,
"Where, Lord?" So He said to them, "Wherever
the body is, there the eagles will be gathered
together."


Luke 18:
18:1 Then He spoke a parable to them, that men
always ought to pray and not lose heart,
18:2 saying: "There was in a certain city a judge
who did not respect Yahweh nor regard man.
18:3 "Now there was a widow in that city; and
she came to him, saying, 'Get justice for me from
my adversary.'
18:4 "And he would not for a while; but
afterward he said within himself, 'Though I do
not respect Yahweh nor regard man,
18:5 'yet because this widow troubles me I will
avenge her, lest by her continual coming she
weary me.' "
18:6 Then the Messiah said, "Hear what the
unjust judge said.
18:7 "And shall Yahweh not avenge His own
elect who cry out day and night to Him, though
He bears long with them?
18:8 "I tell you that He will avenge them
speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man
comes, will He really find faith on the earth?"
18:9 Also He spoke this parable to some who
trusted in themselves that they were righteous,
and despised others:
18:10 "Two men went up to the temple to pray,
one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector.
18:11 "The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with
himself, 'Yahweh, I thank You that I am not like
other men-extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or
even as this tax collector.
18:12 'I fast twice a week; I give tithes of all that
I possess.'
18:13 "And the tax collector, standing afar off,
would not so much as raise his eyes to the sky,
but beat his breast, saying, 'Yahweh, be merciful
to me a sinner!'
18:14 "I tell you, this man went down to his
house justified, not the other; for everyone who
exalts himself will be humbled, and he who
humbles himself will be exalted."
18:15 Then they also brought infants to Him
that He might touch them; but when the disciples
saw it, they rebuked them.
18:16 But Yah’shua called them to Him and
said, "Let the little children come to Me, and do
not forbid them; for such is the kingdom of
Yahweh.
18:17 "Assuredly, I say to you, whoever does not
receive the kingdom of Yahweh as a little child
will by no means enter it."
18:18 Now a certain ruler asked Him, "Good
Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?"
18:19 So Yah’shua said to him, "Why do you
call Me good? No one is good but One, that is,
Yahweh.
18:20 "You know the commandments: 'Do not
commit adultery,' 'Do not murder,' 'Do not steal,'
'Do not bear false witness,' 'Honor your father
and your mother.' "
18:21 And he said, "All these things I have kept
from my youth."
18:22 So when Yah’shua heard these things, He
said to him, "You still lack one thing. Sell all that
you have and distribute to the poor, and you will
have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me."
18:23 But when he heard this, he became very
sorrowful, for he was very rich.
18:24 And when He saw that he became very
sorrowful, He said, "How hard it is for those who
have riches to enter the kingdom of Yahweh!
18:25 "For it is easier for a camel to go through
the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter
the kingdom of Yahweh."
18:26 And those who heard it said, "Who then
can be saved?"
18:27 But He said, "The things which are
impossible with men are possible with Yahweh."
18:28 Then Peter said, "See, we have left all and
followed You."
18:29 So He said to them, "Assuredly, I say to
you, there is no one who has left house or
parents or brothers or wife or children, for the
sake of the kingdom of Yahweh,
18:30 "who shall not receive many times more in
this present time, and in the age to come eternal
life."
18:31 Then He took the twelve aside and said to
them, "Behold we are going up to Jerusalem, and
all things that are written by the prophets
regarding the Son of Man will be accomplished.
18:32 "For He will be delivered to the Gentiles
and will be mocked and insulted and spit upon.
18:33 "They will scourge Him and kill Him. And
the third day He will rise again."
18:34 But they understood none of these things;
this saying was hidden from them, and they did
not know the things which were spoken.
18:35 Then it happened, as He was coming near
Jericho, that a certain blind man sat by the road
begging.
18:36 And hearing a multitude passing by, he
asked what it meant.
18:37 So they told him that Yah’shua of
Nazareth was passing by.
18:38 And he cried out, saying, "Yah’shua, Son
of David, have mercy on me!"
18:39 Then those who went before warned him
that he should be quiet; but he cried out all the
more, "Son of David, have mercy on me!"
18:40 So Yah’shua stood still and commanded
him to be brought to Him. And when he had
come near, He asked him,
18:41 "What do you want Me to do for you?" He
said, "Lord, that I may receive my sight."
18:42 Then Yah’shua said to him, "Receive your
sight; your faith has made you well."
18:43 And immediately he received his sight,
and followed Him, glorifying Yahweh. And all
the people, when they saw it, gave praise to
Yahweh.


Luke 19:
19:1 Then Yah’shua entered and passed through
Jericho.
19:2 Now behold, there was a man named
Zacchaeus, a chief tax collector, and he was rich.
19:3 And he sought to see who Yah’shua was,
but could not because of the crowd, for he was of
short stature.
19:4 So he ran ahead and climbed up into a
sycamore tree to see Him, for He was going to
pass that way.
19:5 And when Yah’shua came to the place, He
looked up and saw him, and said to him,
"Zacchaeus, make haste and come down, for
today I must stay at your house."
19:6 So he made haste and came down, and
received Him joyfully.
19:7 But when they saw it, they all complained,
saying, "He has gone to be a guest with a man
who is a sinner."
19:8 Then Zacchaeus stood and said to the
Messiah, "Look, Lord, I give half of my goods to
the poor; and if I have taken anything from
anyone by false accusation, I restore fourfold."
19:9 And Yah’shua said to him, "Today
salvation has come to this house, because he also
is a son of Abraham;
19:10 "for the Son of Man has come to seek and
to save that which was lost."
19:11 Now as they heard these things, He spoke
another parable, because He was near Jerusalem
and because they thought the kingdom of
Yahweh would appear immediately.
19:12 Therefore He said: "A certain nobleman
went into a far country to receive for himself a
kingdom and to return.
19:13 "So he called ten of his servants, delivered
to them ten minas, and said to them, 'Do business
till I come.'
19:14 "But his citizens hated him, and sent a
delegation after him, saying, 'We will not have
this man to reign over us.'
19:15 "And so it was that when he returned,
having received the kingdom, he then
commanded these servants, to whom he had
given the money, to be called to him, that he
might know how much every man had gained by
trading.
19:16 "Then came the first, saying, 'Master, your
mina has earned ten minas.'
19:17 "And he said to him, 'Well done, good
servant; because you were faithful in a very little,
have authority over ten cities.'
19:18 "And the second came, saying, 'Master,
your mina has earned five minas.'
19:19 "Likewise he said to him, 'You also be
over five cities.'
19:20 "Then another came, saying, 'Master, here
is your mina, which I have kept put away in a
handkerchief.
19:21 'For I feared you, because you are an
austere man. You collect what you did not
deposit, and reap what you did not sow.'
19:22 "And he said to him, 'Out of your own
mouth I will judge you, you wicked servant. You
knew that I was an austere man, collecting what I
did not deposit and reaping what I did not sow.
19:23 'Why then did you not put my money in
the bank, that at my coming I might have
collected it with interest?'
19:24 "And he said to those who stood by, 'Take
the mina from him, and give it to him who has
ten minas.'
19:25 ("But they said to him, 'Master, he has ten
minas.')
19:26 'For I say to you, that to everyone who has
will be given; and from him who does not have,
even what he has will be taken away from him.
19:27 'But bring here those enemies of mine,
who did not want me to reign over them, and
slay them before me.' "
19:28 When He had said this, He went on ahead,
going up to Jerusalem.
19:29 And it came to pass, when He came near
to Bethphage and Bethany, at the mountain
called Olivet, that He sent two of His disciples,
19:30 saying, "Go into the village opposite you,
where as you enter you will find a colt tied, on
which no one has ever sat. Loose it and bring it
here.
19:31 "And if anyone asks you, 'Why are you
loosing it?' thus you shall say to him, 'Because
the Lord Yah’shua has need of it.' "
19:32 So those who were sent went their way
and found it just as He had said to them.
19:33 But as they were loosing the colt, the
owners of it said to them, "Why are you loosing
the colt?"
19:34 And they said, "The Lord Yah’shua has
need of him."
19:35 Then they brought him to Yah’shua. And
they threw their own clothes on the colt, and they
set Yah’shua on him.
19:36 And as He went, many spread their clothes
on the road.
19:37 Then, as He was now drawing near the
descent of the Mount of Olives, the whole
multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and
praise Yahweh with a loud voice for all the
mighty works they had seen,
19:38 saying:
" 'Blessed is the King who comes in the name of
Yahweh!'
Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!"
19:39 And some of the Pharisees called to Him
from the crowd, "Teacher, rebuke Your
disciples."
19:40 But He answered and said to them, "I tell
you that if these should keep silent, the stones
would immediately cry out."
19:41 Now as He drew near, He saw the city
and wept over it,
19:42 saying, "If you had known, even you,
especially in this your day, the things that make
for your peace! But now they are hidden from
your eyes.
19:43 "For days will come upon you when your
enemies will build an embankment around you,
surround you and close you in on every side,
19:44 "and level you, and your children within
you, to the ground; and they will not leave in you
one stone upon another, because you did not
know the time of your visitation."
19:45 Then He went into the temple and began
to drive out those who bought and sold in it,
19:46 saying to them, "It is written, 'My house is
a house of prayer,' but you have made it a 'den of
thieves.' "
19:47 And He was teaching daily in the temple.
But the chief priests, the scribes, and the leaders
of the people sought to destroy Him,
19:48 and were unable to do anything; for all the
people were very attentive to hear Him.
 

Luke 20:
20:1 Now it happened on one of those days, as
He taught the people in the temple and preached
the gospel, that the chief priests and the scribes,
together with the elders, confronted Him
20:2 and spoke to Him, saying, "Tell us, by what
authority are You doing these things? Or who is
he who gave You this authority?"
20:3 But He answered and said to them, "I also
will ask you one thing, and answer Me:
20:4 "The baptism of John-was it from heaven or
from men?"
20:5 And they reasoned among themselves,
saying, "If we say, 'From heaven,' He will say,
'Why then did you not believe him?'
20:6 "But if we say, 'From men,' all the people
will stone us, for they are persuaded that John
was a prophet."
20:7 So they answered that they did not know
where it was from.
20:8 And Yah’shua said to them, "Neither will I
tell you by what authority I do these things."
20:9 Then He began to tell the people this
parable: "A certain man planted a vineyard,
leased it to vinedressers, and went into a far
country for a long time.
20:10 "Now at vintage-time he sent a servant to
the vinedressers, that they might give him some
of the fruit of the vineyard. But the vinedressers
beat him and sent him away empty-handed.
20:11 "Again he sent another servant; and they
beat him also, treated him shamefully, and sent
him away empty-handed.
20:12 "And again he sent a third; and they
wounded him also and cast him out.
20:13 "Then the owner of the vineyard said,
'What shall I do? I will send my beloved son.
Probably they will respect him when they see
him.'
20:14 "But when the vinedressers saw him, they
reasoned among themselves, saying, 'This is the
heir. Come, let us kill him, that the inheritance
may be ours.'
20:15 "So they cast him out of the vineyard and
killed him. Therefore what will the owner of the
vineyard do to them?
20:16 "He will come and destroy those
vinedressers and give the vineyard to others."
And when they heard it they said, "Certainly
not!"
20:17 Then He looked at them and said, "What
then is this that is written:
'The stone which the builders rejected
Has become the chief cornerstone'?
20:18 "Whoever falls on that stone will be
broken; but on whomever it falls, it will grind
him to powder."
20:19 And the chief priests and the scribes that
very hour sought to lay hands on Him, but they
feared the people-for they knew He had spoken
this parable against them.
20:20 So they watched Him, and sent spies who
pretended to be righteous, that they might seize
on His words, in order to deliver Him to the
power and the authority of the governor.
20:21 Then they asked Him, saying, "Teacher,
we know that You say and teach rightly, and
You do not show personal favoritism, but teach
the way of Yahweh in truth:
20:22 "Is it lawful for us to pay taxes to Caesar
or not?"
20:23 But He perceived their craftiness, and said
to them, "Why do you test Me?
20:24 "Show Me a denarius. Whose image and
inscription does it have?" They answered and
said, "Caesar's."
20:25 And He said to them, "Render therefore to
Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to
Yahweh the things that are Yahweh's."
20:26 But they could not catch Him in His words
in the presence of the people. And they marveled
at His answer and kept silent.
20:27 Then some of the Sadducees, who deny
that there is a resurrection, came to Him and
asked Him,
20:28 saying: "Teacher, Moses wrote to us that if
a man's brother dies, having a wife, and he dies
without children, his brother should take his wife
and raise up offspring for his brother.
20:29 "Now there were seven brothers. And the
first took a wife, and died without children.
20:30 "And the second took her as wife, and he
died childless.
20:31 "Then the third took her, and in like
manner the seven also; and they left no children,
and died.
20:32 "Last of all the woman died also.
20:33 "Therefore, in the resurrection, whose wife
does she become? For all seven had her as wife."
20:34 And Yah’shua answered and said to them,
"The sons of this generation marry and are given
in marriage.
20:35 "But those who are counted worthy to
attain that regeneration, and the resurrection
from the dead, neither marry nor are given in
marriage;
20:36 "nor can they die anymore, for they are
equal to the angels and are sons of Yahweh,
being sons of the resurrection.
20:37 "But even Moses showed in the burning
bush passage that the dead are raised, when he
called Yahweh 'the God of Abraham, the God of
Isaac, and the God of Jacob.'
20:38 "For He is not the God of the dead but of
the living, for all live to Him."
20:39 Then some of the scribes answered and
said, "Teacher, You have spoken well."
20:40 But after that they dared not question Him
anymore.
20:41 And He said to them, "How can they say
that the Messiah is the Son of David?
20:42 "Now David himself said in the Book of
Psalms:
Yahweh said to my Lord,
"Sit at My right hand,
20:43 Till I make Your enemies Your
footstool.”’
20:44 "Therefore David calls Him 'Lord'; how is
He then his Son?"
20:45 Then, in the hearing of all the people, He
said to His disciples,
20:46 "Beware of the scribes, who desire to go
around in long robes, love greetings in the
marketplaces, the best seats in the synagogues,
and the best places at feasts,
20:47 "who devour widows' houses, and for a
pretense make long prayers. These will receive
greater condemnation."


Luke 21:
21:1 And He looked up and saw the rich putting
their gifts into the treasury,
21:2 and He saw also a certain poor widow
putting in two mites.
21:3 So He said, "Truly I say to you that this
poor widow has put in more than all;
21:4 "for all these out of their abundance have
put in offerings for Yahweh, but she out of her
poverty put in all the livelihood that she had."
21:5 Then, as some spoke of the temple, how it
was adorned with beautiful stones and donations,
He said,
21:6 "These things which you see-the days will
come in which not one stone shall be left upon
another that shall not be thrown down."
21:7 So they asked Him, saying, "Teacher, but
when will these things be? And what sign will
there be when these things are about to take
place?"
21:8 And He said: "Take heed that you not be
deceived. For many will come in My name,
saying, 'I am He,' and, 'The time has drawn near.'
Therefore do not go after them.
21:9 "But when you hear of wars and
commotions, do not be terrified; for these things
must come to pass first, but the end will not
come immediately."
21:10 Then He said to them, "Nation will rise
against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.
21:11 "And there will be great earthquakes in
various places, and famines and pestilences; and
there will be fearful sights and great signs from
the sky.
21:12 "But before all these things, they will lay
their hands on you and persecute you, delivering
you up to the synagogues and prisons. You will
be brought before kings and rulers for My name's
sake.
21:13 "But it will turn out for you as an occasion
for testimony.
21:14 "Therefore settle it in your hearts not to
meditate beforehand on what you will answer;
21:15 "for I will give you a mouth and wisdom
which all your adversaries will not be able to
contradict or resist.
21:16 "You will be betrayed even by parents and
brothers, relatives and friends; and they will put
some of you to death.
21:17 "And you will be hated by all for My
name's sake.
21:18 "But not a hair of your head shall be lost.
21:19 "By your patience possess your lives.
21:20 "But when you see Jerusalem surrounded
by armies, then know that its desolation is near.
21:21 "Then let those who are in Judea flee to
the mountains, let those who are in the midst of
her depart, and let not those who are in the
country enter her.
21:22 "For these are the days of vengeance, that
all things which are written may be fulfilled.
21:23 "But woe to those who are pregnant and to
those who are nursing babies in those days! For
there will be great distress in the land and wrath
upon this people.
21:24 "And they will fall by the edge of the
sword, and be led away captive into all nations.
And Jerusalem will be trampled by Gentiles until
the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.
21:25 "And there will be signs in the sun, in the
moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress
of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves
roaring;
21:26 "men's hearts failing them from fear and
the expectation of those things which are coming
on the earth, for the powers of the sky will be
shaken.
21:27 "Then they will see the Son of Man
coming in a cloud with power and great glory.
21:28 "Now when these things begin to happen,
look up and lift up your heads, because your
redemption draws near."
21:29 Then He spoke to them a parable: "Look
at the fig tree, and all the trees.
21:30 "When they are already budding, you see
and know for yourselves that summer is now
near.
21:31 "So you also, when you see these things
happening, know that the kingdom of Yahweh is
near.
21:32 "Assuredly, I say to you, this generation
will by no means pass away till all things take
place.
21:33 "Heaven and earth will pass away, but My
words will by no means pass away.
21:34 "But take heed to yourselves, lest your
hearts be weighed down with carousing,
drunkenness, and cares of this life, and that Day
come on you unexpectedly.
21:35 "For it will come as a snare on all those
who dwell on the face of the whole earth.
21:36 "Watch therefore, and pray always that
you may be counted worthy to escape all these
things that will come to pass, and to stand before
the Son of Man."
21:37 And in the daytime He was teaching in the
temple, but at night He went out and stayed on
the mountain called Olivet.
21:38 Then early in the morning all the people
came to Him in the temple to hear Him.
 

Luke 22:
22:1 Now the Feast of the Unleavened Bread
drew near, which is following the Passover.
22:2 And the chief priests and the scribes sought
how they might kill Him, for they feared the
people.
22:3 Then Satan entered Judas, surnamed
Iscariot, who was numbered among the twelve.
22:4 So he went his way and conferred with the
chief priests and captains, how he might betray
Him to them.
22:5 And they were glad, and agreed to give him
money.
22:6 So he promised and sought opportunity to
betray Him to them in the absence of the
multitude.
22:7 Then came the preparation day of the
unleaveneds, when the Passover must be killed.
22:8 And He sent Peter and John, saying, "Go
and prepare the Passover for us, that we may
eat."
22:9 So they said to Him, "Where do You want
us to prepare?"
22:10 And He said to them, "Behold, when you
have entered the city, a man will meet you
carrying a pitcher of water; follow him into the
house which he enters.
22:11 "Then you shall say to the master of the
house, 'The Teacher says to you, "Where is the
guest room where I may eat the Passover with
My disciples?" '
22:12 "Then he will show you a large, furnished
upper room; there make ready."
22:13 So they went and found it just as He had
said to them, and they prepared the Passover.
22:14 When the hour had come, He sat down,
and the twelve apostles with Him.
22:15 Then He said to them, "With fervent desire
I have desired to eat this Passover with you
before I suffer;
22:16 "for I say to you, I will no longer eat of it
until it is fulfilled in the kingdom of Yahweh."
22:17 Then He took the cup, and gave thanks,
and said, "Take this and divide it among
yourselves;
22:18 "for I say to you, I will not drink of the
fruit of the vine until the kingdom of Yahweh
comes."
22:19 And He took bread, gave thanks and broke
it, and gave it to them, saying, "This is My body
which is given for you; do this in remembrance
of Me."
22:20 Likewise He also took the cup after
supper, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in
My blood, which is shed for you.
22:21 "But behold, the hand of My betrayer is
with Me on the table.
22:22 "And truly the Son of Man goes as it has
been determined, but woe to that man by whom
He is betrayed!"
22:23 Then they began to question among
themselves, which of them it was who would do
this thing.
22:24 Now there was also a dispute among
them, as to which of them should be considered
the greatest.
22:25 And He said to them, "The kings of the
Gentiles exercise lordship over them, and those
who exercise authority over them are called
'benefactors.'
22:26 "But not so among you; on the contrary, he
who is greatest among you, let him be as the
younger, and he who governs as he who serves.
22:27 "For who is greater, he who sits at the
table, or he who serves? Is it not he who sits at
the table? Yet I am among you as the One who
serves.
22:28 "But you are those who have continued
with Me in My trials.
22:29 "And I bestow upon you a kingdom, just
as My Father bestowed one upon Me,
22:30 "that you may eat and drink at My table in
My kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the
twelve tribes of Israel."
22:31 And Yah’shua said, "Simon, Simon!
Indeed, Satan has asked for you, that he may sift
you as wheat.
22:32 "But I have prayed for you, that your faith
should not fail; and when you have returned to
Me, strengthen your brethren."
22:33 But he said to Him, "Lord, I am ready to
go with You, both to prison and to death."
22:34 Then He said, "I tell you, Peter, the rooster
shall not crow this day before you will deny
three times that you know Me."
22:35 And He said to them, "When I sent you
without money bag, knapsack, and sandals, did
you lack anything?" So they said, "Nothing."
22:36 Then He said to them, "But now, he who
has a money bag, let him take it, and likewise a
knapsack; and he who has no sword, let him sell
his garment and buy one.
22:37 "For I say to you that this which is written
must still be accomplished in Me: 'And He was
numbered with the transgressors.' For the things
concerning Me have an end."
22:38 So they said, "Lord, look, here are two
swords." And He said to them, "It is enough."
22:39 Coming out, He went to the Mount of
Olives, as He was accustomed, and His disciples
also followed Him.
22:40 When He came to the place, He said to
them, "Pray that you may not enter into
temptation."
22:41 And He was withdrawn from them about a
stone's throw, and He knelt down and prayed,
22:42 saying, "Father, if it is Your will, take this
cup away from Me; nevertheless not My will,
but Yours, be done."
22:43 Then an angel appeared to Him from the
sky, strengthening Him.
22:44 And being in agony, He prayed more
earnestly. Then His sweat became like great
drops of blood falling down to the ground.
22:45 When He rose up from prayer, and had
come to His disciples, He found them sleeping
from sorrow.
22:46 Then He said to them, "Why do you sleep?
Rise and pray, lest you enter into temptation."
22:47 And while He was still speaking, behold,
a multitude; and he who was called Judas, one of
the twelve, went before them and drew near to
Yah’shua to kiss Him.
22:48 But Yah’shua said to him, "Judas, are you
betraying the Son of Man with a kiss?"
22:49 When those around Him saw what was
going to happen, they said to Him, "Lord, shall
we strike with the sword?"
22:50 And one of them struck the servant of the
high priest and cut off his right ear.
22:51 But Yah’shua answered, "Permit even
this." And He touched his ear and healed him.
22:52 Then Yah’shua said to the chief priests,
captains of the temple, and the elders who had
come to Him, "Have you come out, as against a
robber, with swords and clubs?
22:53 "When I was with you daily in the temple,
you did not try to seize Me. But this is your hour,
and the power of darkness."
22:54 Having arrested Him, they led Him and
brought Him into the high priest's house. But
Peter followed at a distance.
22:55 Now when they had kindled a fire in the
midst of the courtyard and sat down together,
Peter sat among them.
22:56 And a certain servant girl, seeing him as
he sat by the fire, looked intently at him and said,
"This man was also with Him."Luke 22:
22:57 But he denied Him, saying, "Woman, I do
not know Him."
22:58 And after a little while another saw him
and said, "You also are of them." But Peter said,
"Man, I am not!"
22:59 Then after about an hour had passed,
another confidently affirmed, saying, "Surely
this fellow also was with Him, for he is a
Galilean."
22:60 But Peter said, "Man, I do not know what
you are saying!" Immediately, while he was still
speaking, the rooster crowed.
22:61 And Yah’shua turned and looked at Peter.
And Peter remembered the word of Yah’shua,
how He had said to him, "Before the rooster
crows, you will deny Me three times."
22:62 So Peter went out and wept bitterly.
22:63 Now the men who held Yah’shua mocked
Him and beat Him.
22:64 And having blindfolded Him, they struck
Him on the face and asked Him, saying,
"Prophesy! Who is the one who struck You?"
22:65 And many other things they
blasphemously spoke against Him.
22:66 As soon as it was day, the elders of the
people, both chief priests and scribes, came
together and led Him into their council, saying,
22:67 "If You are the Messiah, tell us." But He
said to them, "If I tell you, you will by no means
believe.
22:68 "And if I also ask you, you will by no
means answer Me or let Me go.
22:69 "Hereafter the Son of Man will sit on the
right hand of the power of Yahweh."
22:70 Then they all said, "Are You then the Son
of Yahweh?" So He said to them, "You rightly
say that I am."
22:71 And they said, "What further testimony do
we need? For we have heard it ourselves from
His own mouth."


Luke 23:
23:1 Then the whole multitude of them arose and
led Him to Pilate.
23:2 And they began to accuse Him, saying, "We
found this fellow perverting the nation, and
forbidding to pay taxes to Caesar, saying that He
Himself is Messiah, a King."
23:3 Then Pilate asked Him, saying, "Are You
the King of the Hebrews?" He answered him and
said, "It is as you say."
23:4 So Pilate said to the chief priests and the
crowd, "I find no fault in this Man."
23:5 But they were the more fierce, saying, "He
stirs up the people, teaching throughout all
Judea, beginning from Galilee to this place."
23:6 When Pilate heard of Galilee, he asked if
the Man were a Galilean.
23:7 And as soon as he knew that He belonged to
Herod's jurisdiction, he sent Him to Herod, who
was also in Jerusalem at that time.
23:8 Now when Herod saw Yah’shua, he was
exceedingly glad; for he had desired for a long
time to see Him, because he had heard many
things about Him, and he hoped to see some
miracle done by Him.
23:9 Then he questioned Him with many words,
but He answered him nothing.
23:10 And the chief priests and scribes stood and
vehemently accused Him.
23:11 Then Herod, with his men of war, treated
Him with contempt and mocked Him, arrayed
Him in a gorgeous robe, and sent Him back to
Pilate.
23:12 That very day Pilate and Herod became
friends with each other, for previously they had
been at enmity with each other.
23:13 Then Pilate, when he had called together
the chief priests, the rulers, and the people,
23:14 said to them, "You have brought this Man
to me, as one who misleads the people. And
indeed, having examined Him in your presence, I
have found no fault in this Man concerning those
things of which you accuse Him;
23:15 "no, neither did Herod, for I sent you back
to him; and indeed nothing deserving of death
has been done by Him.
23:16 "I will therefore chastise Him and release
Him"
23:17 (for it was necessary for him to release one
to them at the feast).
23:18 And they all cried out at once, saying,
"Away with this Man, and release to us
Barabbas"-
23:19 who had been thrown into prison for a
certain rebellion made in the city, and for
murder.
23:20 Pilate, therefore, wishing to release
Yah’shua, again called out to them.
23:21 But they shouted, saying, "Crucify Him,
crucify Him!"
23:22 Then he said to them the third time, "Why,
what evil has He done? I have found no reason
for death in Him. I will therefore chastise Him
and let Him go."
23:23 But they were insistent, demanding with
loud voices that He be crucified. And the voices
of these men and of the chief priests prevailed.
23:24 So Pilate gave sentence that it should be as
they requested.
23:25 And he released to them the one they
requested, who for rebellion and murder had
been thrown into prison; but he delivered
Yah’shua to their will.
23:26 Now as they led Him away, they laid hold
of a certain man, Simon a Cyrenian, who was
coming from the country, and on him they laid
the stake that he might bear it after Yah’shua.
23:27 And a great multitude of the people
followed Him, and women who also mourned
and lamented Him.
23:28 But Yah’shua, turning to them, said,
"Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for Me,
but weep for yourselves and for your children.
23:29 "For indeed the days are coming in which
they will say, 'Blessed are the barren, wombs that
never bore, and breasts which never nursed!'
23:30 "Then they will begin 'to say to the
mountains, "Fall on us!" and to the hills, "Cover
us!" '
23:31 "For if they do these things in the green
wood, what will be done in the dry?"
23:32 There were also two others, criminals, led
with Him to be put to death.
23:33 And when they had come to the place
called Calvary, there they crucified Him, and the
criminals, one on the right hand and the other on
the left.
23:34 Then Yah’shua said, "Father, forgive
them, for they do not know what they do." And
they divided His garments and cast lots.
23:35 And the people stood looking on. But even
the rulers with them sneered, saying, "He saved
others; let Him save Himself if He is the
Messiah, the chosen of Yahweh."
23:36 The soldiers also mocked Him, coming
and offering Him sour wine,
23:37 and saying, "If You are the King of the
Hebrews, save Yourself."
23:38 And an inscription also was written over
Him in letters of Greek, Latin, and Hebrew:
THIS IS THE KING OF THE HEBREWS.
23:39 Then one of the criminals who were
hanged blasphemed Him, saying, "If You are the
Messiah, save Yourself and us."
23:40 But the other, answering, rebuked him,
saying, "Do you not even respect Yahweh,
seeing you are under the same condemnation?
23:41 "And we indeed justly, for we receive the
due reward of our deeds; but this Man has done
nothing wrong."
23:42 Then he said to Yah’shua, "Lord,
remember me when You come into Your
kingdom."
23:43 And Yah’shua said to him, "Assuredly, I
am saying to you today, you will be with Me in
Paradise."
23:44 Now it was about the sixth hour, and there
was darkness over the earth until the ninth hour.
23:45 Then the sun was darkened, and the veil of
the temple was torn in two.
23:46 And when Yah’shua had cried out with a
loud voice, He said, "Father, 'into Your hands I
commit My spirit.' " Having said this, He
breathed His last.
23:47 So when the centurion saw what had
happened, he glorified Yahweh, saying,
"Certainly this was a righteous Man!"
23:48 And the whole crowd who came together
to that sight, seeing what had been done, beat
their breasts and returned.
23:49 But all His acquaintances, and the women
who followed Him from Galilee, stood at a
distance, watching these things.
23:50 Now behold, there was a man named
Joseph, a council member, a good and just man.
23:51 He had not consented to their decision and
deed. He was from Arimathea, a Hebrew city;
himself also waiting for the kingdom of Yahweh.
23:52 This man went to Pilate and asked for the
body of Yah’shua.
23:53 Then he took it down, wrapped it in linen,
and laid it in a tomb that was hewn out of the
rock, where no one had ever lain before.
23:54 That day was the Preparation, and the
High Sabbath drew near.
23:55 And the women who had come with Him
from Galilee followed after, and they observed
the tomb and how His body was laid.
23:56 Then they returned and prepared spices
and fragrant oils. And they rested on the Sabbath
according to the commandment.


Luke 24:
24:1 Now on the first day of the week, very early
in the morning, they, and certain other women
with them, came to the tomb bringing the spices
which they had prepared.
24:2 But they found the stone rolled away from
the tomb.
24:3 Then they went in and did not find the body
of the Lord Yah’shua.
24:4 And it happened, as they were greatly
perplexed about this, that behold, two men stood
by them in shining garments.
24:5 Then, as they were afraid and bowed their
faces to the earth, they said to them, "Why do
you seek the living among the dead?
24:6 "He is not here, but is risen! Remember
how He spoke to you when He was still in
Galilee,
24:7 "saying, 'The Son of Man must be delivered
into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified,
and the third day rise again.' "
24:8 And they remembered His words.
24:9 Then they returned from the tomb and told
all these things to the eleven and to all the rest.
24:10 It was Mary Magdalene, Joanna, Mary the
mother of James, and the other women with
them, who told these things to the apostles.
24:11 And their words seemed to them like idle
tales, and they did not believe them.
24:12 But Peter arose and ran to the tomb; and
stooping down, he saw the linen cloths lying by
themselves; and he departed, marveling to
himself at what had happened.
24:13 Now behold, two of them were traveling
that same day to a village called Emmaus, which
was seven miles from Jerusalem.
24:14 And they talked together of all these things
which had happened.
24:15 So it was, while they conversed and
reasoned, that Yah’shua Himself drew near and
went with them.
24:16 But their eyes were restrained, so that they
did not know Him.
24:17 And He said to them, "What kind of
conversation is this that you have with one
another as you walk and are sad?"
24:18 Then the one whose name was Cleopas
answered and said to Him, "Are You the only
stranger in Jerusalem, and have You not known
the things which happened there in these days?"
24:19 And He said to them, "What things?" So
they said to Him, "The things concerning
Yah’shua of Nazareth, who was a Prophet
mighty in deed and word before Yahweh and all
the people,
24:20 "and how the chief priests and our rulers
delivered Him to be condemned to death, and
crucified Him.
24:21 "But we were hoping that it was He who
was going to redeem Israel. Indeed, besides all
this, today is the third day since these things
happened.
24:22 "Yes, and certain women of our company,
who arrived at the tomb early, astonished us.
24:23 "When they did not find His body, they
came saying that they had also seen a vision of
angels who said He was alive.
24:24 "And certain of those who were with us
went to the tomb and found it just as the women
had said; but Him they did not see."
24:25 Then He said to them, "O foolish ones,
and slow of heart to believe in all that the
prophets have spoken!
24:26 "Ought not the Messiah to have suffered
these things and to enter into His glory?"
24:27 And beginning at Moses and all the
Prophets, He expounded to them in all the
Scriptures the things concerning Himself.
24:28 Then they drew near to the village where
they were going, and He indicated that He would
have gone farther.
24:29 But they constrained Him, saying, "Abide
with us, for it is toward evening, and the day is
far spent." And He went in to stay with them.
24:30 Now it came to pass, as He sat at the table
with them, that He took bread, blessed and broke
it, and gave it to them.
24:31 Then their eyes were opened and they
knew Him; and He vanished from their sight.
24:32 And they said to one another, "Did not our
heart burn within us while He talked with us on
the road, and while He opened the Scriptures to
us?"
24:33 So they rose up that very hour and
returned to Jerusalem, and found the eleven and
those who were with them gathered together,
24:34 saying, "Yah’shua the Messiah is risen
indeed, and has appeared to Simon!"
24:35 And they told about the things that had
happened on the road, and how He was known to
them in the breaking of bread.
24:36 Now as they said these things, Yah’shua
Himself stood in the midst of them, and said to
them, "Peace to you."
24:37 But they were terrified and frightened, and
supposed they had seen a spirit.
24:38 And He said to them, "Why are you
troubled? And why do doubts arise in your
hearts?
24:39 "Behold My hands and My feet, that it is I
Myself. Handle Me and see, for a spirit does not
have flesh and bones as you see I have."
24:40 When He had said this, He showed them
His hands and His feet.
24:41 But while they still did not believe for joy,
and marveled, He said to them, "Have you any
food here?"
24:42 So they gave Him a piece of a broiled fish
and some honeycomb.
24:43 And He took it and ate in their presence.
24:44 Then He said to them, "These are the
words which I spoke to you while I was still with
you, that all things must be fulfilled which were
written in the Law of Moses and the Prophets
and the Psalms concerning Me."
24:45 And He opened their understanding, that
they might comprehend the Scriptures.
24:46 Then He said to them, "Thus it is written,
and thus it was necessary for the Messiah to
suffer and to rise from the dead the third day,
24:47 "and that repentance and remission of sins
should be preached in His name to all nations,
beginning at Jerusalem.
24:48 "And you are witnesses of these things.
24:49 "Behold, I send the Promise of My Father
upon you; but tarry in the city of Jerusalem until
you are endued with power from on high."
24:50 And He led them out as far as Bethany,
and He lifted up His hands and blessed them.
24:51 Now it came to pass, while He blessed
them, that He was parted from them and carried
up into the air.
24:52 And they worshiped Him, and returned to
Jerusalem with great joy,
24:53 and were continually in the temple
praising and blessing Yahweh. Amam.
