Luke 18 (WEBP)

[1] He also spoke a parable to them that they must always pray and not give up,
[2] saying, “There was a judge in a certain city who didn’t fear God and didn’t respect man.
[3] A widow was in that city, and she often came to him, saying, ‘Defend me from my adversary!’
[4] He wouldn’t for a while; but afterward he said to himself, ‘Though I neither fear God nor respect man,
[5] yet because this widow bothers me, I will defend her, or else she will wear me out by her continual coming.’ ”
[6] The Lord said, “Listen to what the unrighteous judge says.
[7] Won’t God avenge his chosen ones who are crying out to him day and night, and yet he exercises patience with them?
[8] I tell you that he will avenge them quickly. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?”
[9] He also spoke this parable to certain people who were convinced of their own righteousness, and who despised all others:
[10] “Two men went up into the temple to pray; one was a Pharisee, and the other was a tax collector.
[11] The Pharisee stood and prayed by himself like this: ‘God, I thank you that I am not like the rest of men: extortionists, unrighteous, adulterers, or even like this tax collector.
[12] I fast twice a week. I give tithes of all that I get.’
[13] But the tax collector, standing far away, wouldn’t even lift up his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, ‘God, be merciful to me, a sinner!’
[14] I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other; for everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but he who humbles himself will be exalted.”
[15] They were also bringing their babies to him, that he might touch them. But when the disciples saw it, they rebuked them.
[16] Jesus summoned them, saying, “Allow the little children to come to me, and don’t hinder them, for God’s Kingdom belongs to such as these.
[17] Most certainly, I tell you, whoever doesn’t receive God’s Kingdom like a little child, he will in no way enter into it.”
[18] A certain ruler asked him, saying, “Good Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?”
[19] Jesus asked him, “Why do you call me good? No one is good, except one: God.
[20] You know the commandments: ‘Don’t commit adultery,’ ‘Don’t murder,’ ‘Don’t steal,’ ‘Don’t give false testimony,’ ‘Honor your father and your mother.’ ”
[21] He said, “I have observed all these things from my youth up.”
[22] When Jesus heard these things, he said to him, “You still lack one thing. Sell all that you have and distribute it to the poor. Then you will have treasure in heaven; then come, follow me.”
[23] But when he heard these things, he became very sad, for he was very rich.
[24] Jesus, seeing that he became very sad, said, “How hard it is for those who have riches to enter into God’s Kingdom!
[25] For it is easier for a camel to enter in through a needle’s eye than for a rich man to enter into God’s Kingdom.”
[26] Those who heard it said, “Then who can be saved?”
[27] But he said, “The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.”
[28] Peter said, “Look, we have left everything and followed you.”
[29] He said to them, “Most certainly I tell you, there is no one who has left house, or wife, or brothers, or parents, or children, for God’s Kingdom’s sake,
[30] who will not receive many times more in this time, and in the world to come, eternal life.”
[31] He took the twelve aside and said to them, “Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem, and all the things that are written through the prophets concerning the Son of Man will be completed.
[32] For he will be delivered up to the Gentiles, will be mocked, treated shamefully, and spit on.
[33] They will scourge and kill him. On the third day, he will rise again.”
[34] They understood none of these things. This saying was hidden from them, and they didn’t understand the things that were said.
[35] As he came near Jericho, a certain blind man sat by the road, begging.
[36] Hearing a multitude going by, he asked what this meant.
[37] They told him that Jesus of Nazareth was passing by.
[38] He cried out, “Jesus, you son of David, have mercy on me!”
[39] Those who led the way rebuked him, that he should be quiet; but he cried out all the more, “You son of David, have mercy on me!”
[40] Standing still, Jesus commanded him to be brought to him. When he had come near, he asked him,
[41] “What do you want me to do?” He said, “Lord, that I may see again.”
[42] Jesus said to him, “Receive your sight. Your faith has healed you.”
[43] Immediately he received his sight and followed him, glorifying God. All the people, when they saw it, praised God.

Luke 18 (KJVS)

[1] And G1161 he spake G3004 (ImpfActInd) G2532 a parable G3850 unto them G846 G4314 [to this end], that men ought G1163 (PresInf) always G3842 to pray G4336 (PresMidPasDepInf), and G2532 not G3361 to faint G1573 (PresActInf);
[2] Saying G3004 (PresActPtc), There was G2258 (ImpfInd) in G1722 a G5100 city G4172 a G5100 judge G2923, which feared G5399 (PresMidPasDepPtc) not G3361 God G2316, neither G2532 G3361 regarded G1788 (PresPasPtc) man G444:
[3] And G1161 there was G2258 (ImpfInd) a widow G5503 in G1722 that G1565 city G4172; and G2532 she came G2064 (ImpfMidPasDepInd) unto G4314 him G846, saying G3004 (PresActPtc), Avenge G1556 (AorActImpr) me G3165 of G575 mine G3450 adversary G476.
[4] And G2532 he would G2309 (AorActInd) not G3756 for G1909 a while G5550: but G1161 afterward G5023 G3326 he said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) within G1722 himself G1438, Though G1499 I fear G5399 (PresMidPasDepInd) not G3756 God G2316, nor G2532 G3756 regard G1788 (PresPasInd) man G444;
[5] Yet G1065 because G1223 this G5026 widow G5503 troubleth G3930 (PresActInf) G2873 me G3427, I will avenge G1556 (FutActInd) her G846, lest G3363 by G1519 her continual G5056 coming G2064 (PresMidPasDepPtc) she weary G5299 (PresActSubj) me G3165.
[6] And G1161 the Lord G2962 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), Hear G191 (AorActImpr) what G5101 the unjust G93 judge G2923 saith G3004 (PresActInd).
[7] And G1161 shall G1557 not G3364 God G2316 avenge G4160 (FutActInd) G1557 his own G846 elect G1588, which G3588 cry G994 (PresActPtc) day G2250 and G2532 night G3571 unto G4314 him G846, though G2532 he bear long G3114 (PresActPtc) with G1909 them G846?
[8] I tell G3004 (PresActInd) you G5213 that G3754 he will G4160 (FutActInd) avenge G1557 them G846 speedily G5034 G1722. Nevertheless G4133 when G687 the Son G5207 of man G444 cometh G2064 (Aor2ActPtc), shall he find G2147 (FutActInd) faith G4102 on G1909 the earth G1093?
[9] And G1161 he spake G2036 (Aor2ActInd) G2532 this G5026 parable G3850 unto G4314 certain G5100 which G3588 trusted G3982 (Perf2ActPtc) in G1909 themselves G1438 that G3754 they were G1526 (PresInd) righteous G1342, and G2532 despised G1848 (PresActPtc) others G3062:
[10] Two G1417 men G444 went up G305 (Aor2ActInd) into G1519 the temple G2411 to pray G4336 (AorMidDepInf); the one G1520 a Pharisee G5330, and G2532 the other G2087 a publican G5057.
[11] The Pharisee G5330 stood G2476 (AorPasPtc) and prayed G4336 (ImpfMidPasDepInd) thus G5023 with G4314 himself G1438, God G2316, I thank G2168 (PresActInd) thee G4671, that G3754 I am G1510 (PresInd) not G3756 as G5618 other G3062 men G444 [are], extortioners G727, unjust G94, adulterers G3432, or G2228 even G2532 as G5613 this G3778 publican G5057.
[12] I fast G3522 (PresActInd) twice G1364 in the week G4521, I give tithes G586 (PresActInd) of all G3956 that G3745 I possess G2932 (PresMidPasDepInd).
[13] And G2532 the publican G5057, standing G2476 (PerfActPtc) afar off G3113, would G2309 (ImpfActInd) not G3756 lift up G1869 (AorActInf) so much as G3761 [his] eyes G3788 unto G1519 heaven G3772, but G235 smote G5180 (ImpfActInd) upon G1519 his G846 breast G4738, saying G3004 (PresActPtc), God G2316 be merciful G2433 (AorPasImpr) to me G3427 a sinner G268.
[14] I tell G3004 (PresActInd) you G5213, this man G3778 went down G2597 (Aor2ActInd) to G1519 his G846 house G3624 justified G1344 (PerfPasPtc) [rather] than G2228 the other G1565: for G3754 every one G3956 that exalteth G5312 (PresActPtc) himself G1438 shall be abased G5013 (FutPasInd); and G1161 he that humbleth G5013 (PresActPtc) himself G1438 shall be exalted G5312 (FutPasInd).
[15] And G1161 they brought G4374 (ImpfActInd) unto him G846 also G2532 infants G1025, that G2443 he would touch G680 (PresMidSubj) them G846: but G1161 when [his] disciples G3101 saw G1492 (Aor2ActPtc) [it], they rebuked G2008 (AorActInd) them G846.
[16] But G1161 Jesus G2424 called G4341 (AorMidDepPtc) them G846 [unto him], and said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), Suffer G863 (Aor2ActImpr) little children G3813 to come G2064 (PresMidPasDepInf) unto G4314 me G3165, and G2532 forbid G2967 (PresActImpr) them G846 not G3361: for G1063 of such G5108 is G2076 (PresInd) the kingdom G932 of God G2316.
[17] Verily G281 I say G3004 (PresActInd) unto you G5213, Whosoever G3739 shall G1209 not G3362 receive G1209 (AorMidDepSubj) the kingdom G932 of God G2316 as G5613 a little child G3813 shall G1525 in no wise G3364 enter G1525 (Aor2ActSubj) therein G1519 G846.
[18] And G2532 a certain G5100 ruler G758 asked G1905 (AorActInd) him G846, saying G3004 (PresActPtc), Good G18 Master G1320, what G5101 shall I do G4160 (AorActPtc) to inherit G2816 (FutActInd) eternal G166 life G2222?
[19] And G1161 Jesus G2424 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto him G846, Why G5101 callest thou G3004 (PresActInd) me G3165 good G18? none G3762 [is] good G18, save G1508 one G1520, [that is], God G2316.
[20] Thou knowest G1492 (PerfActInd) the commandments G1785, Do G3431 not G3361 commit adultery G3431 (AorActSubj), Do G5407 not G3361 kill G5407 (AorActSubj), Do G2813 not G3361 steal G2813 (AorActSubj), Do G5576 not G3361 bear false witness G5576 (AorActSubj), Honour G5091 (PresActImpr) thy G4675 father G3962 and G2532 thy G4675 mother G3384.
[21] And G1161 he said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), All G3956 these G5023 have I kept G5442 (AorMidInd) from G1537 my G3450 youth G3503 up.
[22] Now G1161 when Jesus G2424 heard G191 (AorActPtc) these things G5023, he said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto him G846, Yet G2089 lackest G3007 (PresActInd) thou G4671 one G1520 thing: sell G4453 (AorActImpr) all G3956 that G3745 thou hast G2192 (PresActInd), and G2532 distribute G1239 (Aor2ActImpr) unto the poor G4434, and G2532 thou shalt have G2192 (FutActInd) treasure G2344 in G1722 heaven G3772: and G2532 come G1204 (Impr), follow G190 (PresActImpr) me G3427.
[23] And G1161 when he heard G191 (AorActPtc) this G5023, he was G1096 (Aor2MidDepInd) very sorrowful G4036: for G1063 he was G2258 (ImpfInd) very G4970 rich G4145.
[24] And G1161 when Jesus G2424 saw G1492 (Aor2ActPtc) that he G846 was G1096 (Aor2MidDepPtc) very sorrowful G4036, he said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), How G4459 hardly G1423 shall they G1525 that have G2192 (PresActPtc) riches G5536 enter G1525 (FutMidDepInd) into G1519 the kingdom G932 of God G2316!
[25] For G1063 it is G2076 (PresInd) easier G2123 for a camel G2574 to go G1525 (Aor2ActInf) through G1223 a needle’s G4476 eye G5168, than G2228 for a rich man G4145 to enter G1525 (Aor2ActInf) into G1519 the kingdom G932 of God G2316.
[26] And G1161 they that heard G191 (AorActPtc) [it] said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), Who G5101 then G2532 can be G1410 (PresMidPasDepInd) saved G4982 (AorPasInf)?
[27] And G1161 he said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), The things which are impossible G102 with G3844 men G444 are G2076 (PresInd) possible G1415 with G3844 God G2316.
[28] Then G1161 Peter G4074 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), Lo G2400 (Aor2ActImpr), we G2249 have left G863 (AorActInd) all G3956, and G2532 followed G190 (AorActInd) thee G4671.
[29] And G1161 he said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto them G846, Verily G281 I say G3004 (PresActInd) unto you G5213, G3754 There is G2076 (PresInd) no man G3762 that G3739 hath left G863 (AorActInd) house G3614, or G2228 parents G1118, or G2228 brethren G80, or G2228 wife G1135, or G2228 children G5043, for G1752 the kingdom G932 of God’s G2316 sake G1752,
[30] Who G3739 shall G618 not G3364 receive G618 (Aor2ActSubj) manifold more G4179 in G1722 this G5129 present time G2540, and G2532 in G1722 the world G165 to come G2064 (PresMidPasDepPtc) life G2222 everlasting G166.
[31] Then G1161 he took G3880 (Aor2ActPtc) [unto him] the twelve G1427, and said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto G4314 them G846, Behold G2400 (Aor2ActImpr), we go up G305 (PresActInd) to G1519 Jerusalem G2414, and G2532 all things G3956 that are written G1125 (PerfPasPtc) by G1223 the prophets G4396 concerning the Son G5207 of man G444 shall be accomplished G5055 (FutPasInd).
[32] For G1063 he shall be delivered G3860 (FutPasInd) unto the Gentiles G1484, and G2532 shall be mocked G1702 (FutPasInd), and G2532 spitefully entreated G5195 (FutPasInd), and G2532 spitted on G1716 (FutPasInd):
[33] And G2532 they shall scourge G3146 (AorActPtc) [him], and put G615 him G846 to death G615 (FutActInd): and G2532 the third G5154 day G2250 he shall rise again G450 (FutMidInd).
[34] And G2532 they G846 understood G4920 (AorActInd) none G3762 of these things G5130: and G2532 this G5124 saying G4487 was G2258 (ImpfInd) hid G2928 (PerfPasPtc) from G575 them G846, G2532 neither G3756 knew they G1097 (ImpfActInd) the things which were spoken G3004 (PresPasPtc).
[35] And G1161 it came to pass G1096 (Aor2MidDepInd), that as G1722 he G846 was come nigh G1448 (PresActInf) unto G1519 Jericho G2410, a certain G5100 blind man G5185 sat G2521 (ImpfMidPasDepInd) by G3844 the way side G3598 begging G4319 (PresActPtc):
[36] And G1161 hearing G191 (AorActPtc) the multitude G3793 pass by G1279 (PresMidPasDepPtc), he asked G4441 (ImpfMidPasDepInd) what G5101 it G5124 meant G1498 (PresOpt).
[37] And G1161 they told G518 (AorActInd) him G846, that G3754 Jesus G2424 of Nazareth G3480 passeth by G3928 (PresMidPasDepInd).
[38] And G2532 he cried G994 (AorActInd), saying G3004 (PresActPtc), Jesus G2424, [thou] Son G5207 of David G1138, have mercy G1653 (AorActImpr) on me G3165.
[39] And G2532 they which went before G4254 (PresActPtc) rebuked G2008 (ImpfActInd) him G846, that G2443 he should hold his peace G4623 (AorActSubj): but G1161 he G846 cried G2896 (ImpfActInd) so much G4183 the more G3123, [Thou] Son G5207 of David G1138, have mercy G1653 (AorActImpr) on me G3165.
[40] And G1161 Jesus G2424 stood G2476 (AorPasPtc), and commanded G2753 (AorActInd) him G846 to be brought G71 (AorPasInf) unto G4314 him G846: and G1161 when he G846 was come near G1448 (AorActPtc), he asked G1905 (AorActInd) him G846,
[41] Saying G3004 (PresActPtc), What G5101 wilt thou G2309 (PresActInd) that I shall do G4160 (AorActSubj) unto thee G4671? And G1161 he said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), Lord G2962, that G2443 I may receive my sight G308 (AorActSubj).
[42] And G2532 Jesus G2424 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto him G846, Receive thy sight G308 (AorActImpr): thy G4675 faith G4102 hath saved G4982 (PerfActInd) thee G4571.
[43] And G2532 immediately G3916 he received his sight G308 (AorActInd), and G2532 followed G190 (ImpfActInd) him G846, glorifying G1392 (PresActPtc) God G2316: and G2532 all G3956 the people G2992, when they saw G1492 (Aor2ActPtc) [it], gave G1325 (AorActInd) praise G136 unto God G2316.

Young’s Literal Translation

Luke 18 (YLT)

[1] And he spake also a simile to them, that it behoveth us always to pray, and not to faint,
[2] saying, ‘A certain judge was in a certain city-God he is not fearing, and man he is not regarding-
[3] and a widow was in that city, and she was coming unto him, saying, Do me justice on my opponent,
[4] and he would not for a time, but after these things he said in himself, Even if God I do not fear, and man do not regard,
[5] yet because this widow doth give me trouble, I will do her justice, lest, perpetually coming, she may plague me.’
[6] And the Lord said, ‘Hear ye what the unrighteous judge saith:
[7] and shall not God execute the justice to His choice ones, who are crying unto Him day and night-bearing long in regard to them?
[8] I say to you, that He will execute the justice to them quickly; but the Son of Man having come, shall he find the faith upon the earth?’
[9] And he spake also unto certain who have been trusting in themselves that they were righteous, and have been despising the rest, this simile:
[10] ‘Two men went up to the temple to pray, the one a Pharisee, and the other a tax-gatherer;
[11] the Pharisee having stood by himself, thus prayed: God, I thank Thee that I am not as the rest of men, rapacious, unrighteous, adulterers, or even as this tax-gatherer;
[12] I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all things-as many as I possess.
[13] ‘And the tax-gatherer, having stood afar off, would not even the eyes lift up to the heaven, but was smiting on his breast, saying, God be propitious to me-the sinner!
[14] I say to you, this one went down declared righteous, to his house, rather than that one: for every one who is exalting himself shall be humbled, and he who is humbling himself shall be exalted.’
[15] And they were bringing near also the babes, that he may touch them, and the disciples having seen did rebuke them,
[16] and Jesus having called them near, said, ‘Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not, for of such is the reign of God;
[17] verily I say to you, Whoever may not receive the reign of God as a little child, may not enter into it.’
[18] And a certain ruler questioned him, saying, ‘Good teacher, what having done-shall I inherit life age-during?’
[19] And Jesus said to him, ‘Why me dost thou call good? no one is good, except One-God;
[20] the commands thou hast known: Thou mayest not commit adultery, Thou mayest do no murder, Thou mayest not steal, Thou mayest not bear false witness, Honour thy father and thy mother.’
[21] And he said, ‘All these I did keep from my youth;’
[22] and having heard these things, Jesus said to him, ‘Yet one thing to thee is lacking; all things-as many as thou hast-sell, and distribute to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven, and come, be following me;’
[23] and he, having heard these things, became very sorrowful, for he was exceeding rich.
[24] And Jesus having seen him become very sorrowful, said, ‘How hardly shall those having riches enter into the reign of God!
[25] for it is easier for a camel through the eye of a needle to enter, than for a rich man into the reign of God to enter.’
[26] And those who heard, said, ‘And who is able to be saved?’
[27] and he said, ‘The things impossible with men are possible with God.’
[28] And Peter said, ‘Lo, we left all, and did follow thee;’
[29] and he said to them, ‘Verily I say to you, that there is not one who left house, or parents, or brothers, or wife, or children, for the sake of the reign of God,
[30] who may not receive back manifold more in this time, and in the coming age, life age-during.’
[31] And having taken the twelve aside, he said unto them, ‘Lo, we go up to Jerusalem, and all things shall be completed-that have been written through the prophets-to the Son of Man,
[32] for he shall be delivered up to the nations, and shall be mocked, and insulted, and spit upon,
[33] and having scourged they shall put him to death, and on the third day he shall rise again.’
[34] And they none of these things understood, and this saying was hid from them, and they were not knowing the things said.
[35] And it came to pass, in his coming nigh to Jericho, a certain blind man was sitting beside the way begging,
[36] and having heard a multitude going by, he was inquiring what this may be,
[37] and they brought him word that Jesus the Nazarene doth pass by,
[38] and he cried out, saying, ‘Jesus, Son of David, deal kindly with me;’
[39] and those going before were rebuking him, that he might be silent, but he was much more crying out, ‘Son of David, deal kindly with me.’
[40] And Jesus having stood, commanded him to be brought unto him, and he having come nigh, he questioned him,
[41] saying, ‘What wilt thou I shall do to thee?’ and he said, ‘Sir, that I may receive sight.’
[42] And Jesus said to him, ‘Receive thy sight; thy faith hath saved thee;’
[43] and presently he did receive sight, and was following him, glorifying God; and all the people, having seen, did give praise to God.
