Luke 20:27-47 Darby’s Translation

The Question about the Resurrection

27  And some of the Sadducees, who deny that there is any resurrection, coming up [to him], 28  demanded of him saying, Teacher, Moses wrote to us, If any one's brother, who has a wife, die, and he die childless, his brother shall take the wife and raise up seed to his brother. 29  There were then seven brethren: and the first, having taken a wife, died childless; 30  and the second [took the woman, and he died childless]; 31  and the third took her: and in like manner also the seven left no children and died; 32  and last of all the woman also died. 33  In the resurrection therefore of which of them does she become wife, for the seven had her as wife? 34  And Jesus said to them, The sons of this world marry and are given in marriage, 35  but they who are counted worthy to have part in that world, and the resurrection from among [the] dead, neither marry nor are given in marriage; 36  for neither can they die any more, for they are equal to angels, and are sons of God, being sons of the resurrection. 37  But that the dead rise, even Moses shewed in [the section of] the bush, when he called [the] Lord the God of Abraham and the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob; 38  but he is not God of [the] dead but of [the] living; for all live for him.

39  And some of the scribes answering said, Teacher, thou hast well spoken. 40  For they did not dare any more to ask him anything.

The Question about David's Son

41  And he said to them, How do they say that the Christ is David's son, 42  and David himself says in the book of Psalms, The Lord said to my Lord, Sit at my right hand 43  until I put thine enemies [as] footstool of thy feet? 44  David therefore calls him Lord, and how is he his son?

Jesus Denounces the Scribes

45  And, as all the people were listening, he said to his disciples, 46  Beware of the scribes, who like to walk about in long robes, and who love salutations in the market-places, and first seats in the synagogues, and first places at suppers; 47  who devour the houses of widows, and as a pretext make long prayers. These shall receive a severer judgment.
