Luke 13:1-22 Darby’s Translation

Repent or Perish

13 1  Now at the same time there were present some who told him of the Galileans whose blood Pilate mingled with [that of] their sacrifices. 2  And he answering said to them, Think ye that these Galileans were sinners beyond all the Galileans because they suffered such things? 3  No, I say to you, but if ye repent not, ye shall all perish in the same manner. 4  Or those eighteen on whom the tower in Siloam fell and killed them, think ye that they were debtors beyond all the men who dwell in Jerusalem? 5  No, I say to you, but if ye repent not, ye shall all perish in like manner.

The Parable of the Barren Fig Tree

6  And he spoke this parable: A certain [man] had a fig-tree planted in his vineyard, and he came seeking fruit upon it and did not find [any]. 7  And he said to the vinedresser, Behold, [these] three years I come seeking fruit on this fig-tree and find none: cut it down; why does it also render the ground useless? 8  But he answering says to him, Sir, let it alone for this year also, until I shall dig about it and put dung, 9  and if it shall bear fruit—but if not, after that thou shalt cut it down.

A Crippled Woman Healed on the Sabbath

10  And he was teaching in one of the synagogues on the sabbath. 11  And lo, [there was] a woman having a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and she was bent together and wholly unable to lift her head up. 12  And Jesus, seeing her, called to [her], and said to her, Woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity. 13  And he laid his hands upon her; and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God. 14  But the ruler of the synagogue, indignant because Jesus healed on the sabbath, answering said to the crowd, There are six days in which [people] ought to work; in these therefore come and be healed, and not on the sabbath day. 15  The Lord therefore answered him and said, Hypocrites! does not each one of you on the sabbath loose his ox or his ass from the manger and leading [it] away, water [it]? 16  And this [woman], who is a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan has bound, lo, [these] eighteen years, ought she not to be loosed from this bond on the sabbath day? 17  And as he said these things, all who were opposed to him were ashamed; and all the crowd rejoiced at all the glorious things which were being done by him.

The Parable of the Mustard Seed

18  And he said, To what is the kingdom of God like? and to what shall I liken it? 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 birds of heaven lodged in its branches.

The Parable of the Leaven

20  And again he said, To what shall I liken the kingdom of God? 21  It is like leaven, which a woman took and hid in three measures of meal until the whole was leavened.

The Narrow Gate

22  And he went through one city and village after another, teaching, and journeying to Jerusalem.
