NASB — Luke 13 — KJV

Call to Repent

1 Now on the same occasion there were some present who reported to Him about the Galileans whose blood aPilate had Imixed with their sacrifices. 2 And Jesus said to them, aDo you suppose that these Galileans were [greater] sinners than all [other] Galileans because they suffered this [fate]? 3 I tell you, no, but unless you Irepent, you will all likewise perish. 4 Or do you suppose that those eighteen on whom the tower in aSiloam fell and killed them were [worse] Ibculprits than all the men who live in Jerusalem? 5 I tell you, no, but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish.”

6 ¶ And He [began] telling this parable: “A man had aa fig tree which had been planted in his vineyard; and he came looking for fruit on it and did not find any. 7 And he said to the vineyard-keeper, ‘Behold, for three years I have come looking for fruit on this fig tree Iwithout finding any. aCut it down! Why does it even use up the ground?’ 8 And he answered and said to him, ‘Let it alone, sir, for this year too, until I dig around it and put in fertilizer; 9 and if it bears fruit next year, [fine]; but if not, cut it down.’”

Healing on the Sabbath

10 ¶ And He was ateaching in one of the synagogues on the Sabbath. 11 And there was a woman who for eighteen years had had aa sickness caused by a spirit; and she was bent double, and could not straighten up at all. 12 When Jesus saw her, He called her over and said to her, “Woman, you are freed from your sickness.” 13 And He alaid His hands on her; and immediately she was made erect again and [began] bglorifying God. 14 But athe synagogue official, indignant because Jesus bhad healed on the Sabbath, [began] saying to the crowd in response, “cThere are six days in which work should be done; so come during them and get healed, and not on the Sabbath day.” 15 But athe Lord answered him and said, “You hypocrites, bdoes not each of you on the Sabbath untie his ox or his donkey from the stall and lead him away to water [him]? 16 And this woman, aa daughter of Abraham as she is, whom bSatan has bound for eighteen long years, should she not have been released from this bond on the Sabbath day?” 17 As He said this, all His opponents were being humiliated; and athe entire crowd was rejoicing over all the glorious things being done by Him.

18 ¶ So aHe was saying, bWhat is the kingdom of God like, and to what shall I compare it? 19 It is like a mustard seed, which a man took and threw into his own garden; and it grew and became a tree, and aTHE BIRDS OF THE IAIR NESTED IN ITS BRANCHES.”

Teaching in the Villages

22 ¶ And He was passing through from one city and village to another, teaching, and aproceeding on His way to Jerusalem. 23 And someone said to Him, “Lord, are there [just] a few who are being saved?” And He said to them, 24 aStrive to enter through the narrow door; for many, I tell you, will seek to enter and will not be able. 25 Once the head of the house gets up and ashuts the door, and you begin to stand outside and knock on the door, saying, ‘bLord, open up to us!’ then He will answer and say to you, ‘cI do not know where you are from.’ 26 Then you will abegin to say, ‘We ate and drank in Your presence, and You taught in our streets’; 27 and He will say, ‘I tell you, aI do not know where you are from; bDEPART FROM ME, ALL YOU EVILDOERS.’ 28 aIn that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth when you see Abraham and Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of God, but yourselves being thrown out. 29 And they awill come from east and west and from north and south, and will recline [at the table] in the kingdom of God. 30 And behold, a[some] are last who will be first and [some] are first who will be last.”

How often I wanted to gather your children together, bjust as a hen [gathers] her brood under her wings, and you would not [have it]! 35 Behold, your house is left to you [desolate]; and I say to you, you will not see Me until [the time] comes when you say, ‘aBLESSED IS HE WHO COMES IN THE NAME OF THE LORD!’”

Christ preacheth repentance upon the punishment of the Galilaeans, and others.

1 There were present at that season some that told him of the Galilaeans, whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices. 2 And Jesus answering said unto them, Suppose ye that these Galilaeans were sinners above all the Galilaeans, because they suffered such things? 3 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. 4 Or those eighteen, upon whom the tower in Siloam fell, and slew them, think ye that they were sinners above all men that dwelt in Jerusalem? 5 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.

The fruitless fig tree may not stand.

6 ¶ He spake also this parable; A certain [man] had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came and sought fruit thereon, and found none. 7 Then said he unto 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? 8 And he answering said unto him, Lord, let it alone this year also, till I shall dig about it, and dung [it]: 9 And if it bear fruit, [well]: and if not, [then] after that thou shalt cut it down. 10 And he was teaching in one of the synagogues on the sabbath.

He healeth the crooked woman:

11 ¶ And, behold, there was a woman which had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bowed together, and could in no wise lift up [herself]. 12 And when Jesus saw her, he called [her to him], and said unto her, Woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity. 13 And he laid [his] hands on her: and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God. 14 And the ruler of the synagogue answered with indignation, because that Jesus had healed on the sabbath day, and said unto the people, There are six days in which men ought to work: in them therefore come and be healed, and not on the sabbath day. 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? 16 And ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan hath bound, lo, these eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the sabbath day? 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:

18 ¶ Then said he, Unto what is the kingdom of God like? and whereunto shall I resemble it? 19 It is like a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and cast into his garden; and it grew, and waxed a great tree; and the fowls of the air lodged in the branches of it. 20 And again he said, Whereunto shall I liken the kingdom of God? 21 It is like leaven, which a woman took and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened. 22 And he went through the cities and villages, teaching, and journeying toward Jerusalem. 23 Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them,

exhorteth to enter in at the strait gate,
