Luke 7:1-30 Darby’s Translation

A Centurion's Servant Healed

7 1  And when he had completed all his words in the hearing of the people, he entered into Capernaum. 2  And a certain centurion's bondman who was dear to him was ill and about to die; 3  and having heard of Jesus, he sent to him elders of the Jews, begging him that he might come and save his bondman. 4  But they, being come to Jesus, besought him diligently, saying, He is worthy to whom thou shouldest grant this, 5  for he loves our nation, and himself has built the synagogue for us. 6  And Jesus went with them. But already, when he was not far from the house, the centurion sent to him friends, saying to him, Lord, do not trouble thyself, for I am not worthy that thou shouldest enter under my roof. 7  Wherefore neither did I count myself worthy to come to thee. But say by a word and my servant shall be healed. 8  For I also am a man placed under authority, having under myself soldiers, and I say to this [one], Go, and he goes; and to another, Come, and he comes; and to my bondman, Do this, and he does [it]. 9  And Jesus hearing this wondered at him, and turning to the crowd following him said, I say to you, Not even in Israel have I found so great faith. 10  And they who had been sent returning to the house found the bondman, who was ill, in good health.

Jesus Raises the Widow's Son at Nain

11  And it came to pass afterwards he went into a city called Nain, and many of his disciples and a great crowd went with him. 12  And as he drew near to the gate of the city, behold, a dead man was carried out, the only son of his mother, and she a widow, and a very considerable crowd of the city [was] with her. 13  And the Lord, seeing her, was moved with compassion for her, and said to her, Weep not; 14  and coming up he touched the bier, and the bearers stopped. And he said, Youth, I say to thee, Wake up. 15  And the dead sat up and began to speak; and he gave him to his mother. 16  And fear seized on all, and they glorified God, saying, A great prophet has been raised up amongst us; and God has visited his people. 17  And this report went out in all Judaea concerning him, and in all the surrounding country.

The Messengers from John the Baptist

18  And the disciples of John brought him word concerning all these things:

19  and John, having called two of his disciples, sent to Jesus, saying, Art thou he that is coming, or are we to wait for another? 20  But the men having come to him said, John the baptist has sent us to thee, saying, Art thou he that is coming, or are we to wait for another? 21  In that hour he healed many of diseases and plagues and evil spirits, and to many blind he granted sight. 22  And Jesus answering said to them, Go, bring back word to John of what ye have seen and heard: that blind see, lame walk, lepers are cleansed, deaf hear, dead are raised, poor are evangelized; 23  and blessed is whosoever shall not be offended in me. 24  And the messengers of John having departed, he began to speak to the crowds concerning John: What went ye out into the wilderness to behold? a reed shaken by the wind? 25  But what went ye out to see? a man clothed in delicate garments? Behold, those who are in splendid clothing and live luxuriously are in the courts of kings. 26  But what went ye out to see? a prophet? Yea, I say to you, and [what is] more excellent than a prophet. 27  This is he concerning whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, who shall prepare thy way before thee; 28  for I say unto you, Among them that are born of women a greater [prophet] is no one than John [the baptist]; but he who is a little one in the kingdom of God is greater than he. 29  (And all the people who heard [it], and the tax-gatherers, justified God, having been baptised with the baptism of John; 30  but the Pharisees and the lawyers rendered null as to themselves the counsel of God, not having been baptised by him.)
