Christ preacheth repentance upon the punishment of the Galilaeans, and others.
Luke 13:1 There were present at that season some that told him of the Galileans, whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices. Luke 13:2 And Jesus answering, said to them, Suppose ye that these Galileans were sinners above all the Galileans, because they suffered such things? Luke 13:3 I tell you, No; but except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. Luke 13:4 Or those eighteen, upon whom the tower in Siloam fell, and killed them, think ye that they were sinners above all men that dwelt in Jerusalem? Luke 13:5 I tell you, No; but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.
The fruitless fig tree may not stand.
Luke 13:6 He spoke also this parable: A certain [man] had a fig-tree planted in his vineyard; and he came and sought fruit on it, and found none. Luke 13:7 Then said he to the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig-tree, and find none: cut it down; why cumbereth it the ground? Luke 13:8 And he answering, said to him, Lord, let it alone this year also, till I shall dig about it, and dung [it]: Luke 13:9 And if it shall bear fruit, [well]: and if not, [then] after that thou shalt cut it down. Luke 13:10 And he was teaching in one of the synagogues on the sabbath.
He healeth the crooked woman:
Luke 13:11 And behold, there was a woman who had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bowed together, and could in no wise raise [herself]. Luke 13:12 And when Jesus saw her, he called [her to him], and said to her, Woman, thou art loosed from thy infirmity. Luke 13:13 And he laid [his] hands on her: and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God. Luke 13:14 And the ruler of the synagogue answered with indignation, because Jesus had healed on the sabbath, and said to the people, There are six days in which men ought to work: in them therefore come and be healed, and not on the sabbath. Luke 13:15 The Lord then answered him, and said, [Thou] hypocrite, doth not each one of you on the sabbath loose his ox or [his] ass from the stall, and lead [him] away to watering? Luke 13:16 And ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan hath bound, lo, these eighteen years, to be loosed from this bond on the Sabbath? Luke 13:17 And when he had said these things, all his adversaries were ashamed: and all the people rejoiced for all the glorious things that were done by him.
sheweth the powerful working of the Word in the hearts of his chosen, by the parable of the grain of mustard seed, and of leaven:
Luke 13:18 Then said he, To what is the kingdom of God like? and to what shall I resemble it? Luke 13:19 It is like a grain of mustard-seed, which a man took, and cast into his garden, and it grew, and became a great tree; and the fowls of the air lodged in the branches of it. Luke 13:20 And again he said, To what shall I liken the kingdom of God? Luke 13:21 It is like leaven, which a woman took and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened. Luke 13:22 And he went through the cities and villages, teaching, and journeying towards Jerusalem. Luke 13:23 Then said one to him, Lord, are there few that are saved? And he said to them,
exhorteth to enter in at the strait gate,
Luke 13:24 Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say to you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able. Luke 13:25 When once the master of the house hath risen, and hath shut the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us; and he will answer and say to you, I know you not whence ye are: Luke 13:26 Then ye will begin to say, We have eaten and drank in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets. Luke 13:27 But he will say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are: depart from me, all [ye] workers of iniquity. Luke 13:28 There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets in the kingdom of God, and you [yourselves] excluded. Luke 13:29 And they will come from the east, and [from] the west, and from the north, and [from] the south, and will sit down in the kingdom of God. Luke 13:30 And behold, there are last, who shall be first; and there are first who shall be last.
and reproveth Herod and Jerusalem.
Luke 13:31 The same day there came certain of the Pharisees, saying to him, Go out, and depart hence; for Herod will kill thee. Luke 13:32 And he said to them, Go ye and tell that fox, Behold, I cast out demons, and I do cures to-day and to-morrow, and the third [day] I shall be perfected. Luke 13:33 Nevertheless, I must walk to-day and to-morrow, and the [day] following: for it cannot be that a prophet should perish out of Jerusalem. Luke 13:34 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, that killest the prophets, and stonest them that are sent to thee; how often would I have gathered thy children, as a hen [gathereth] her brood under [her] wings, and ye would not! Luke 13:35 Behold, your house is left to you desolate. And verily I say to you, ye shall not see me, until [the time shall] come when ye shall say, Blessed [is] he that cometh in the name of the Lord.
