Lucas 13

1 NOW at that time came some and told him of the Galiloyee, they whose blood Pilatos had mingled with their sacrifices.

2 Jeshu answered and said to them, Think you that these Galiloyee were sinners more than all the Galiloyee, that thus it was (with) them?

3 No; but I tell you that all of you also, if you repent not, will thus perish.

4 Or those eighteen on whom fell the tower in Silucha, and killed them; think you that they were sinners above all men who dwell in Urishlem?

5 No; but I tell you that, if you repent not, all of you likewise shall perish.

6 And he spake this parable: A man had a fig-tree which was planted in his vinery: and he came and sought fruits on it, but did not find.

7 And he said to the husbandman, Behold, three years come I seeking fruits from this fig-tree, but I have not found: cut it down; why maketh it the ground useless?

8 The husbandman saith to him, My lord, suffer it also this year, until I tend it and manure it:

9 and if it produce fruits, (well): but if not, then afterwards I will cut it down.

10 AS Jeshu was teaching on a shabath in one of the synagogues,

11 a woman was there who had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years; and she was bowed down, and could not be straight at all.

12 But Jeshu saw her, and called her, and said to her, Woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity.

13 And he laid his hand upon her; and at once she was made straight, and glorified Aloha.

14 But the chief of the synagogue answered, being angry that Jeshu had healed on the shabath, and said to the congregation, Six days there are in which it is lawful to work: in them come and be healed, and not on the day of shabath.

15 But Jeshu answered and said to him, Hypocrite, doth not any one of you on the shabath loose his ox or his ass from the manger, and going giveth to drink?

16 But this daughter of Abraham, whom, behold, the Accuser hath bound eighteen years, is it not lawful to loose from this binding on the day of shabath?

17 And as he said these things, ashamed were all they who had risen up against him; and all the people rejoiced in all these wonders that were done by his hand.

18 Jeshu said, What doth the kingdom of Aloha resemble, and to what shall I compare it?

19 It resembles a grain of mustard, which a man took (and) cast into his garden: and it grew, and became a great tree; and the fowl of the heaven built in its branches.

20 Jeshu said again, To what shall I compare the kingdom of Aloha?

21 It is like leaven which a woman took; (and) hid in three satas of meal, until all had leavened.

22 And he journeyed, teaching in the villages and in the cities, and going forwards to Urishlem.

23 ONE had demanded (of) him if they are few who are saved. But Jeshu said to them,

24 Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for I say to you that many will seek to enter in, but shall not be able.

25 From the hour that the Lord of the house shall have risen up and have shut the door, you may stand without, knocking at the door, and may begin to say, Our Lord, our Lord, open to us! But he will answer and say, I tell you that I know not whence you are.

26 And you shall begin to say, Before thee we have eaten and drunk, and in our streets thou hast taught.

27 And he shall say to you, I know you not whence you are: depart from me, workers of falsity.

28 There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when you shall see Abraham and Ishok and Jakub and all the prophets in the kingdom of Aloha, but you be cast forth without.

29 And they shall come from the east, and from the west, and from the south, and from the north, and shall recline in the kingdom of Aloha.

30 And, behold, there are last who shall be first, and there are first who shall be last.

31 In that day came men from the Pharishee, saying to him, Remove, go from hence, because Herodes desireth to kill thee.

32 Jeshu saith to them, Go, tell that fox, Behold, I cast out devils and perform cures to-day and to-morrow, and the third day I am perfected.

33 Nevertheless it behoveth me to-day and to-morrow to work and the (day) after I shall go; because it cannot be that a prophet perish out of Urishlem.

34 Urishlem, Urishlem! killing the prophets, and stoning them that are sent to her, what times would I have gathered thy sons as the hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and you willed not!

35 Behold, left to you is your house a desert; for I say to you, that you will not see me until you shall say, Blessed is he who cometh in the name of the Lord.
