Lucas 11

1 And it happened in the to be him in a place certain praying, when he ceased, said one of the disciples of him to him: O lord, teach us to pray, as even John taught the disciples of himself.

2 He said and to them: When you pray, say: O Father, be hallowed the name of thee; let come of thee the kingdom;

3 the bread of us the necessary give thou to us the every day;

4 And for give to us the sins of us, even for ourselves forgive all owing us; and not thou mayest lead us into temptation.

5 And he said to them: Which of you shall have a friend, and shall go to him at midnight, and say to him: O friend, lend to me three loaves;

6 because a friend of me has come from way to me, and not I have what I shall set for him.

7 And he from within answering should say: Not to me trouble do thou cause; already the door has been shut, and the children of me with me in the bed are; not I am able having arisen to give to thee.

8 I say to you, if and not will give to him having arisen, because the to be of him a friend, through indeed the importunity of him arising he will give to him as many as he wants.

9 And I to you say: Ask you, and it shall be given to you; seek you, and you shall find; knock you, and it shall be opened to you.

10 All for the asking receives; and the seeking finds; and to the knocking it shall be opened.

11 Which now of you the father shall ask the son bread, not a stone will give to him? or also a fish, not in place of a fish a serpent will give to him?

12 or also if he may ask an egg, not will give to him a scorpion?

13 If then you, evil being, know you gifts good to give to the children of you, how much more the Father that of heaven, will give a spirit holy to those asking him?

14 And he was casting out a demon, and it was dumb; it came to pass and of the demon having come out, spake the dumb; and wondered the crowds.

15 Some but of them said: By Beelzebul, a ruler of the demons, he cast out the demons;

16 other but tempting, a sign from him sought from heaven.

17 He He but knowing of him the thoughts, said to them: Every kingdom, against herself having been divided, is brought to desolation, and house upon house fails.

18 If and also the adversary against himself has been divided, how shall stand the kingdom of him? for you say, by Beelzebul to cast out me the demons.

19 If but I by Beelzebul cast out the demons, the sons of you by whom do they cast out? Through this judges of you they shall be.

20 If but by a finger of God I cast out the demons, then has suddenly come upon you the royal majesty of the God.

21 When the strong one having been armed should he guard the of himself a palace, in peace are the possessions of him;

22 as soon as but the stronger of him having entered should overcome him, the arms of him takes away, in which he had confided, and the spoils of him distributed.

23 He not being with me, against me is; and he not gathering with me, scatters.

24 When the unclean spirit may come out from the man, passes through dry places, seeking a resting place; and not finding, says: I will return into the house of me, whence I came out.

25 And having come it finds having been swept and having been adorned.

26 Then it goes and takes with seven other spirits more evil of itself, and they having entered dwell there; and becomes the last of the man that worse of the first.

27 It happened and in to the to speak him these things, having lifted certain woman a voice out of the crowd, said to him: Blessed the womb that having carried thee, and breasts those thou hast sucked.

28 He but said: Yes rather blessed those hearing the word of the God, and observing.

29 The and crowds gathering together, he began to say: The generation this evil is; a sign it seeks; and a sign not shall be given to her, except the sign of Jonas.

30 Even as for became Jonas a sign to the Ninevites, so will be also the son of the man, to the generation this.

31 A queen of South will be raised in the judgment with the men of the generation this, and will condemn them; because she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and lo, a greater of Solomon here.

32 Men of Nineveh will stand up in the judgment with the generation this, and will condemn her; because they reformed at the preaching of Jonas; and lo, a greater of Jonas here.

33 No one and a lamp having lighted, into a secret place places, neither under the corn–measure, but on the lamp–stand, that those entering the light may see.

34 The lamp of the body is the eye; when therefore the eye of thee sound may be, also whole the body of thee enlightened is; when but evil may be, also the body of thee darkened.

35 Take heed therefore, not the light that in thee darkness is.

36 If therefore the body of thee whole is enlightened, not having any part dark, will be enlightened whole, as when the lamp by the brightness may enlighten thee.

37 In and the to have spoken, asked him a Pharisee certain that he might dine with him. Having entered and he reclined.

38 The and Pharisee seeing wondered, because not first he was dipped before the dinner.

39 Said and the Lord to him: Now you the Pharisees the outside of the cup and of the platter you cleanse; the but inside of you is full of extortion and of evil.

40 O unwise, not he having made the outside, also the inside made?

41 But the things being within give you alms; and lo, all things clean to you is.

42 But woe to you the Pharisees, for you tithe the mint, and the rue, and every pot–herb; and you pass by the justice and the love of the God. These things you ought to have done, and those not to omit.

43 Woe to you the Pharisees, for you love the first seat in the synagogues, and the salutations in the markets.

44 Woe to you, for you are like the tombs those unseen, and the men, those walking over, not know.

45 Answering and one of the lawyers says to him: O teacher, these things saying also us thou reproachest.

46 He and said: Also to you the lawyers woe, for you load the men burdens oppressive, and yourselves with one of the fingers of you not you touch the burdens.

47 Woe to you, for you build the tombs of the prophets, the and fathers of you killed them.

48 Therefore you testify and you consent to the works of the fathers of you; for they indeed killed them, you and build of them the tombs.

49 Because of this and the wisdom of the God said: I will send to them prophets and apostles, and out of them they will kill and persecute;

50 so that may be required the blood of all of the prophets, that being shed from a laying down of a world, from the generation this;

51 from the blood of Abel to the blood of Zecharias that having perished between the altar and the house. Yes I say to you, it will be required from the generation this.

52 Woe to you the lawyers, for you took away the key of the knowledge; yourselves not you entered, and those entering you hindered.

53 Saying and of him these things to them, began the scribes and the Pharisees greatly to be incensed, and to make speak off–hand him about many things; trying to entrap him, seeking to each something out of the mouth of him, that they might accuse him.
