Luke 7:1-30 American Standard Version

A Centurion's Servant Healed

7 1  After he had ended all his sayings in the ears of the people, he entered into Capernaum. 2  And a certain centurion's servant, who was dear unto him, was sick and at the point of death. 3  And when he heard concerning Jesus, he sent unto him elders of the Jews, asking him that he would come and save his servant. 4  And they, when they came to Jesus, besought him earnestly, saying, He is worthy that thou shouldest do this for him; 5  for he loveth our nation, and himself built us our synagogue. 6  And Jesus went with them. And when he was now not far from the house, the centurion sent friends to him, saying unto him, Lord, trouble not thyself; for I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: 7  wherefore neither thought I myself worthy to come unto thee: but say the word, and my servant shall be healed. 8  For I also am a man set under authority, having under myself soldiers: and I say to this one, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it. 9  And when Jesus heard these things, he marvelled at him, and turned and said unto the multitude that followed him, I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel. 10  And they that were sent, returning to the house, found the servant whole.

Jesus Raises the Widow's Son at Nain

11  And it came to pass soon afterwards, that he went to a city called Nain; and his disciples went with him, and a great multitude. 12  Now when he drew near to the gate of the city, behold, there was carried out one that was dead, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow: and much people of the city was with her. 13  And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her, and said unto her, Weep not. 14  And he came nigh and touched the bier: and the bearers stood still. And he said, Young man, I say unto thee, Arise. 15  And he that was dead sat up, and began to speak. And he gave him to his mother. 16  And fear took hold on all: and they glorified God, saying, A great prophet is arisen among us: and, God hath visited his people. 17  And this report went forth concerning him in the whole of Judaea, and all the region round about.

The Messengers from John the Baptist

18  And the disciples of John told him of all these things.

19  And John calling unto him two of his disciples sent them to the Lord, saying, Art thou he that cometh, or look we for another? 20  And when the men were come unto him, they said, John the Baptist hath sent us unto thee, saying, Art thou he that cometh, or look we for another? 21  In that hour he cured many of diseases and plagues and evil spirits; and on many that were blind he bestowed sight. 22  And he answered and said unto them, Go and tell John the things which ye have seen and heard; the blind receive their sight, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, the poor have good tidings preached to them. 23  And blessed is he, whosoever shall find no occasion of stumbling in me. 24  And when the messengers of John were departed, he began to say unto the multitudes concerning John, What went ye out into the wilderness to behold? a reed shaken with the wind? 25  But what went ye out to see? a man clothed in soft raiment? Behold, they that are gorgeously apparelled, and live delicately, are in kings' courts. 26  But what went ye out to see? a prophet? Yea, I say unto you, and much more than a prophet. 27  This is he of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, Who shall prepare thy way before thee. 28  I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there is none greater than John: yet he that is but little in the kingdom of God is greater than he. 29  And all the people when they heard, and the publicans, justified God, being baptized with the baptism of John. 30  But the Pharisees and the lawyers rejected for themselves the counsel of God, being not baptized of him.
