Luke 9 (WEBP)

[1] He called the twelve° together and gave them power and authority over all demons, and to cure diseases.
[2] He sent them out to preach God’s Kingdom and to heal the sick.
[3] He said to them, “Take nothing for your journey—no staffs, nor wallet, nor bread, nor money. Don’t have two tunics each.
[4] Into whatever house you enter, stay there, and depart from there.
[5] As many as don’t receive you, when you depart from that city, shake off even the dust from your feet for a testimony against them.”
[6] They departed and went throughout the villages, preaching the Good News and healing everywhere.
[7] Now Herod the tetrarch heard of all that was done by him; and he was very perplexed, because it was said by some that John had risen from the dead,
[8] and by some that Elijah had appeared, and by others that one of the old prophets had risen again.
[9] Herod said, “I beheaded John, but who is this about whom I hear such things?” He sought to see him.
[10] The apostles, when they had returned, told him what things they had done. He took them and withdrew apart to a desert region of° a city called Bethsaida.
[11] But the multitudes, perceiving it, followed him. He welcomed them, spoke to them of God’s Kingdom, and he cured those who needed healing.
[12] The day began to wear away; and the twelve came and said to him, “Send the multitude away, that they may go into the surrounding villages and farms and lodge and get food, for we are here in a deserted place.”
[13] But he said to them, “You give them something to eat.” They said, “We have no more than five loaves and two fish, unless we should go and buy food for all these people.”
[14] For they were about five thousand men. He said to his disciples, “Make them sit down in groups of about fifty each.”
[15] They did so, and made them all sit down.
[16] He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to the sky, he blessed them, broke them, and gave them to the disciples to set before the multitude.
[17] They ate and were all filled. They gathered up twelve baskets of broken pieces that were left over.
[18] As he was praying alone, the disciples were near him, and he asked them, “Who do the multitudes say that I am?”
[19] They answered, “ ‘John the Baptizer,’ but others say, ‘Elijah,’ and others, that one of the old prophets has risen again.”
[20] He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” Peter answered, “The Christ of God.”
[21] But he warned them and commanded them to tell this to no one,
[22] saying, “The Son of Man must suffer many things, and be rejected by the elders, chief priests, and scribes, and be killed, and the third day be raised up.”
[23] He said to all, “If anyone desires to come after me, let him deny himself, take up his cross,° and follow me.
[24] For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever will lose his life for my sake will save it.
[25] For what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses or forfeits his own self?
[26] For whoever will be ashamed of me and of my words, of him will the Son of Man be ashamed when he comes in his glory, and the glory of the Father, and of the holy angels.
[27] But I tell you the truth: There are some of those who stand here who will in no way taste of death until they see God’s Kingdom.”
[28] About eight days after these sayings, he took with him Peter, John, and James, and went up onto the mountain to pray.
[29] As he was praying, the appearance of his face was altered, and his clothing became white and dazzling.
[30] Behold, two men were talking with him, who were Moses and Elijah,
[31] who appeared in glory and spoke of his departure,° which he was about to accomplish at Jerusalem.
[32] Now Peter and those who were with him were heavy with sleep, but when they were fully awake, they saw his glory, and the two men who stood with him.
[33] As they were parting from him, Peter said to Jesus, “Master, it is good for us to be here. Let’s make three tents: one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah,” not knowing what he said.
[34] While he said these things, a cloud came and overshadowed them, and they were afraid as they entered into the cloud.
[35] A voice came out of the cloud, saying, “This is my beloved Son. Listen to him!”
[36] When the voice came, Jesus was found alone. They were silent, and told no one in those days any of the things which they had seen.
[37] On the next day, when they had come down from the mountain, a great multitude met him.
[38] Behold, a man from the crowd called out, saying, “Teacher, I beg you to look at my son, for he is my only born§ child.
[39] Behold, a spirit takes him, he suddenly cries out, and it convulses him so that he foams; and it hardly departs from him, bruising him severely.
[40] I begged your disciples to cast it out, and they couldn’t.”
[41] Jesus answered, “Faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you and bear with you? Bring your son here.”
[42] While he was still coming, the demon threw him down and convulsed him violently. But Jesus rebuked the unclean spirit, healed the boy, and gave him back to his father.
[43] They were all astonished at the majesty of God. But while all were marveling at all the things which Jesus did, he said to his disciples,
[44] “Let these words sink into your ears, for the Son of Man will be delivered up into the hands of men.”
[45] But they didn’t understand this saying. It was concealed from them, that they should not perceive it, and they were afraid to ask him about this saying.
[46] An argument arose among them about which of them was the greatest.
[47] Jesus, perceiving the reasoning of their hearts, took a little child, and set him by his side,
[48] and said to them, “Whoever receives this little child in my name receives me. Whoever receives me receives him who sent me. For whoever is least among you all, this one will be great.”
[49] John answered, “Master, we saw someone casting out demons in your name, and we forbade him, because he doesn’t follow with us.”
[50] Jesus said to him, “Don’t forbid him, for he who is not against us is for us.”
[51] It came to pass, when the days were near that he should be taken up, he intently set his face to go to Jerusalem
[52] and sent messengers before his face. They went and entered into a village of the Samaritans, so as to prepare for him.
[53] They didn’t receive him, because he was traveling with his face set toward Jerusalem.
[54] When his disciples, James and John, saw this, they said, “Lord, do you want us to command fire to come down from the sky and destroy them, just as Elijah did?”
[55] But he turned and rebuked them, “You don’t know of what kind of spirit you are.
[56] For the Son of Man didn’t come to destroy men’s lives, but to save them.” They went to another village.
[57] As they went on the way, a certain man said to him, “I want to follow you wherever you go, Lord.”
[58] Jesus said to him, “The foxes have holes and the birds of the sky have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head.”
[59] He said to another, “Follow me!” But he said, “Lord, allow me first to go and bury my father.”
[60] But Jesus said to him, “Leave the dead to bury their own dead, but you go and announce God’s Kingdom.”
[61] Another also said, “I want to follow you, Lord, but first allow me to say good-bye to those who are at my house.”
[62] But Jesus said to him, “No one, having put his hand to the plow and looking back, is fit for God’s Kingdom.”

Luke 9 (KJVS)

[1] Then G1161 he called G4779 his G846 twelve G1427 disciples G3101 together G4779 (AorMidPtc), and G2532 gave G1325 (AorActInd) them G846 power G1411 and authority G1849 over G1909 all G3956 devils G1140, and G2532 to cure G2323 (PresActInf) diseases G3554.
[2] And G2532 he sent G649 (AorActInd) them G846 to preach G2784 (PresActInf) the kingdom G932 of God G2316, and G2532 to heal G2390 (PresMidPasDepInf) the sick G770 (PresActPtc).
[3] And G2532 he said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto G4314 them G846, Take G142 (PresActImpr) nothing G3367 for G1519 [your] journey G3598, neither G3383 staves G4464, nor G3383 scrip G4082, neither G3383 bread G740, neither G3383 money G694; neither G3383 have G2192 (PresActInf) two G1417 coats G5509 apiece G303.
[4] And G2532 whatsoever G3739 G302 house G3614 ye enter G1525 (Aor2ActSubj) into G1519, there G1563 abide G3306 (PresActImpr), and G2532 thence G1564 depart G1831 (PresMidPasDepImpr).
[5] And G2532 whosoever G3745 G302 will G1209 not G3361 receive G1209 (AorMidDepSubj) you G5209, when ye go G1831 (PresMidPasDepPtc) out of G575 that G1565 city G4172, shake off G660 (AorActImpr) the very G2532 dust G2868 from G575 your G5216 feet G4228 for G1519 a testimony G3142 against G1909 them G846.
[6] And G1161 they departed G1831 (PresMidPasDepPtc), and went G1330 (ImpfMidPasDepInd) through G2596 the towns G2968, preaching the gospel G2097 (PresMidPtc), and G2532 healing G2323 (PresActPtc) every where G3837.
[7] Now G1161 Herod G2264 the tetrarch G5076 heard G191 (AorActInd) of all G3956 that was done G1096 (PresMidPasDepPtc) by G5259 him G846: and G2532 he was perplexed G1280 (ImpfActInd), because G1223 that it was said G3004 (PresPasInf) of G5259 some G5100, that G3754 John G2491 was risen G1453 (PerfPasInd) from G1537 the dead G3498;
[8] And G1161 of G5259 some G5100, that G3754 Elias G2243 had appeared G5316 (Aor2PasDepSubj); and G1161 of others G243, that G3754 one G1520 of the old G744 prophets G4396 was risen again G450 (Aor2ActInd).
[9] And G2532 Herod G2264 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), John G2491 have G607 I G1473 beheaded G607 (AorActInd): but G1161 who G5101 is G2076 (PresInd) this G3778, of G4012 whom G3739 I G1473 hear G191 (PresActInd) such things G5108? And G2532 he desired G2212 (ImpfActInd) to see G1492 (Aor2ActInf) him G846.
[10] And G2532 the apostles G652, when they were returned G5290 (AorActPtc), told G1334 (AorMidDepInd) him G846 all that G3745 they had done G4160 (AorActInd). And G2532 he took G3880 (Aor2ActPtc) them G846, and went aside G5298 (AorActInd) privately G2596 G2398 into G1519 a desert G2048 place G5117 belonging to the city G4172 called G2564 (PresPasPtc) Bethsaida G966.
[11] And G1161 the people G3793, when they knew G1097 (Aor2ActPtc) [it], followed G190 (AorActInd) him G846: and G2532 he received G1209 (AorMidDepPtc) them G846, and spake G2980 (ImpfActInd) unto them G846 of G4012 the kingdom G932 of God G2316, and G2532 healed G2390 (ImpfMidPasDepInd) them that had G2192 (PresActPtc) need G5532 of healing G2322.
[12] And G1161 when the day G2250 began G756 (AorMidDepInd) to wear away G2827 (PresActInf), then G1161 came G4334 (Aor2ActPtc) the twelve G1427, and said G2036 (Aor2ActSubj) unto him G846, Send G630 the multitude G3793 away G630 (AorActImpr), that G2443 they may go G565 (Aor2ActPtc) into G1519 the towns G2968 and G2532 country G68 round about G2945, and lodge G2647 (AorActSubj), and G2532 get G2147 (Aor2ActInd) victuals G1979: for G3754 we are G2070 (PresInd) here G5602 in G1722 a desert G2048 place G5117.
[13] But G1161 he said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto G4314 them G846, Give G1325 (Aor2ActImpr) ye G5210 them G846 to eat G5315 (Aor2ActInf). And G1161 they said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), We G2254 have no G3756 G1526 (PresInd) more G4119 but G2228 five G4002 loaves G740 and G2532 two G1417 fishes G2486; except G1509 we G2249 should go G4198 (AorPasDepPtc) and buy G59 (AorActSubj) meat G1033 for G1519 all G3956 this G5126 people G2992.
[14] For G1063 they were G2258 (ImpfInd) about G5616 five thousand G4000 men G435. And G1161 he said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) to G4314 his G846 disciples G3101, Make G2625 them G846 sit down G2625 (AorActImpr) by G303 fifties G4004 in a company G2828.
[15] And G2532 they did G4160 (AorActInd) so G3779, and G2532 made G347 them all G537 sit down G347 (AorActInd).
[16] Then G1161 he took G2983 (Aor2ActPtc) the five G4002 loaves G740 and G2532 the two G1417 fishes G2486, and looking up G308 (AorActPtc) to G1519 heaven G3772, he blessed G2127 (AorActInd) them G846, and G2532 brake G2622 (AorActInd), and G2532 gave G1325 (ImpfActInd) to the disciples G3101 to set before G3908 (AorPasInf) the multitude G3793.
[17] And G2532 they did eat G5315 (Aor2ActInd), and G2532 were G5526 all G3956 filled G5526 (AorPasInd): and G2532 there was taken up G142 (AorPasInd) of fragments G2801 that remained G4052 (AorActPtc) to them G846 twelve G1427 baskets G2894.
[18] And G2532 it came to pass G1096 (Aor2MidDepInd), as G1722 he was G1511 (PresInf) alone G2651 praying G4336 (PresMidPasDepPtc), his G846 disciples G3101 were with G4895 (ImpfInd) him G846: and G2532 he asked G1905 (AorActInd) them G846, saying G3004 (PresActPtc), Whom G5101 say G3004 (PresActInd) the people G3793 that I G3165 am G1511 (PresInf)?
[19] They G1161 answering G611 (AorPasDepPtc) said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), John G2491 the Baptist G910; but G1161 some G243 [say], Elias G2243; and G1161 others G243 [say], that G3754 one G5100 of the old G744 prophets G4396 is risen again G450 (Aor2ActInd).
[20] G1161 He said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto them G846, But G1161 whom G5101 say G3004 (PresActInd) ye G5210 that I G3165 am G1511 (PresInf)? G1161 Peter G4074 answering G611 (AorPasDepPtc) said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), The Christ G5547 of God G2316.
[21] And G1161 he straitly charged G2008 (AorActPtc) them G846, and commanded G3853 (AorActInd) [them] to tell G2036 (Aor2ActInf) no man G3367 that thing G5124;
[22] Saying G2036 (Aor2ActPtc), G3754 The Son G5207 of man G444 must G1163 (PresInd) suffer G3958 (Aor2ActInf) many things G4183, and G2532 be rejected G593 (AorPasInf) of G575 the elders G4245 and G2532 chief priests G749 and G2532 scribes G1122, and G2532 be slain G615 (AorPasInf), and G2532 be raised G1453 (AorPasInf) the third G5154 day G2250.
[23] And G1161 he said G3004 (ImpfActInd) to G4314 [them] all G3956, If any [man] G1536 will G2309 (PresActInd) come G2064 (Aor2ActInf) after G3694 me G3450, let him deny G533 (AorMidDepImpr) himself G1438, and G2532 take up G142 (AorActImpr) his G846 cross G4716 daily G2250 G2596, and G2532 follow G190 (PresActImpr) me G3427.
[24] For G1063 whosoever G3739 G302 will G2309 (PresActSubj) save G4982 (AorActInf) his G846 life G5590 shall lose G622 (FutActInd) it G846: but G1161 whosoever G3739 G302 will lose G622 (AorActSubj) his G846 life G5590 for my G1700 sake G1752, the same G3778 shall save G4982 (FutActInd) it G846.
[25] For G1063 what G5101 is G5623 a man G444 advantaged G5623 (PresPasInd), if he gain G2770 (AorActPtc) the whole G3650 world G2889, and G1161 lose G622 (AorActPtc) himself G1438, or G2228 be cast away G2210 (AorPasPtc)?
[26] For G1063 whosoever G3739 G302 shall be ashamed G1870 (AorPasDepSubj) of me G3165 and G2532 of my G1699 words G3056, of him G5126 shall G1870 the Son G5207 of man G444 be ashamed G1870 (FutPasDepInd), when G3752 he shall come G2064 (Aor2ActSubj) in G1722 his own G846 glory G1391, and G2532 [in his] Father’s G3962, and G2532 of the holy G40 angels G32.
[27] But G1161 I tell G3004 (PresActInd) you G5213 of a truth G230, there be G1526 (PresInd) some G5100 standing G2476 (PerfActPtc) here G5602, which G3739 shall G1089 not G3364 taste G1089 (FutMidDepInd) of death G2288, till G2193 G302 they see G1492 (Aor2ActSubj) the kingdom G932 of God G2316.
[28] And G1161 it came to pass G1096 (Aor2MidDepInd) about G5616 an eight G3638 days G2250 after G3326 these G5128 sayings G3056, G2532 he took G3880 (Aor2ActPtc) Peter G4074 and G2532 John G2491 and G2532 James G2385, and went up G305 (Aor2ActInd) into G1519 a mountain G3735 to pray G4336 (AorMidDepInf).
[29] And G2532 as G1722 he G846 prayed G4336 (PresMidPasDepInf), the fashion G1491 of his G846 countenance G4383 was G1096 (Aor2MidDepInd) altered G2087, and G2532 his G846 raiment G2441 [was] white G3022 [and] glistering G1823 (PresActPtc).
[30] And G2532, behold G2400 (Aor2ActImpr), there talked G4814 (ImpfActInd) with him G846 two G1417 men G435, which G3748 were G2258 (ImpfInd) Moses G3475 and G2532 Elias G2243:
[31] Who G3739 appeared G3700 (AorPasPtc) in G1722 glory G1391, and spake G3004 (ImpfActInd) of his G846 decease G1841 which G3739 he should G3195 (ImpfActInd) accomplish G4137 (PresActInf) at G1722 Jerusalem G2419.
[32] But G1161 Peter G4074 and G2532 they that were with G4862 him G846 were G2258 (ImpfInd) heavy G916 (PerfPasPtc) with sleep G5258: and G1161 when they were awake G1235 (AorActPtc), they saw G1492 (Aor2ActInd) his G846 glory G1391, and G2532 the two G1417 men G435 that stood with G4921 (PerfActPtc) him G846.
[33] And G2532 it came to pass G1096 (Aor2MidDepInd), as G1722 they G846 departed G1316 (PresMidPasDepInf) from G575 him G846, Peter G4074 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto G4314 Jesus G2424, Master G1988, it is G2076 (PresInd) good G2570 for us G2248 to be G1511 (PresInf) here G5602: and G2532 let us make G4160 (AorActSubj) three G5140 tabernacles G4633; one for G3391 thee G4671, and G2532 one for G3391 Moses G3475, and G2532 one for G3391 Elias G2243: not G3361 knowing G1492 (PerfActPtc) what G3739 he said G3004 (PresActInd).
[34] While G1161 he G846 thus G5023 spake G3004 (PresActPtc), there came G1096 (Aor2MidDepInd) a cloud G3507, and G2532 overshadowed G1982 (AorActInd) them G846: and G1161 they feared G5399 (AorPasDepInd) as G1722 they G1565 entered G1525 (Aor2ActInf) into G1519 the cloud G3507.
[35] And G2532 there came G1096 (Aor2MidDepInd) a voice G5456 out of G1537 the cloud G3507, saying G3004 (PresActPtc), This G3778 is G2076 (PresInd) my G3450 beloved G27 Son G5207: hear G191 (PresActImpr) him G846.
[36] And G2532 when the voice G5456 was past G1722 G1096 (Aor2MidDepInf), Jesus G2424 was found G2147 (AorPasInd) alone G3441. And G2532 they G846 kept [it] close G4601 (AorActInd), and G2532 told G518 (AorActInd) no man G3762 in G1722 those G1565 days G2250 any G3762 of those things which G3739 they had seen G3708 (PerfActInd).
[37] And G1161 it came to pass G1096 (Aor2MidDepInd), that on G1722 the next G1836 day G2250, when they G846 were come down G2718 (Aor2ActPtc) from G575 the hill G3735, much G4183 people G3793 met G4876 (AorActInd) him G846.
[38] And, G2532 behold G2400 (Aor2ActImpr), a man G435 of G575 the company G3793 cried out G310 (AorActInd), saying G3004 (PresActPtc), Master G1320, I beseech G1189 (PresMidPasDepInd) thee G4675, look G1914 (AorActImpr) upon G1909 my G3450 son G5207: for G3754 he is G2076 (PresInd) mine G3427 only child G3439.
[39] And G2532, lo G2400 (Aor2ActImpr), a spirit G4151 taketh G2983 (PresActInd) him G846, and G2532 he suddenly G1810 crieth out G2896 (PresActInd); and G2532 it teareth G4682 (PresActInd) him G846 that he foameth G876 again G3326, and G2532 bruising G4937 (PresActPtc) him G846 hardly G3425 departeth G672 (PresActInd) from G575 him G846.
[40] And G2532 I besought G1189 (AorPasInd) thy G4675 disciples G3101 to G2443 cast G1544 him G846 out G1544 (PresActSubj); and G2532 they could G1410 (AorPasDepInd) not G3756.
[41] And G1161 Jesus G2424 answering G611 (AorPasDepPtc) said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), O G5599 faithless G571 and G2532 perverse G1294 (PerfPasPtc) generation G1074, how G2193 long G4219 shall I be G2071 (FutInd) with G4314 you G5209, and G2532 suffer G430 (FutMidDepInd) you G5216? Bring G4317 (Aor2ActImpr) thy G4675 son G5207 hither G5602.
[42] And G1161 as he G846 was G4334 yet G2089 a coming G4334 (PresMidPasDepPtc), the devil G1140 threw G4486 him G846 down G4486 (AorActInd), and G2532 tare G4952 (AorActInd) [him]. And G1161 Jesus G2424 rebuked G2008 (AorActInd) the unclean G169 spirit G4151, and G2532 healed G2390 (AorMidDepInd) the child G3816, and G2532 delivered G591 him G846 again G591 (AorActInd) to his G846 father G3962.
[43] And G1161 they were G1605 all G3956 amazed G1605 (ImpfPasInd) at G1909 the mighty power G3168 of God G2316. But G1161 while they wondered G2296 (PresActPtc) every one G3956 at G1909 all things G3956 which G3739 Jesus G2424 did G4160 (AorActInd), he said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto G4314 his G846 disciples G3101,
[44] Let these G5128 sayings G3056 sink down G5087 (Aor2MidImpr) into G1519 your G5210 G5216 ears G3775: for G1063 the Son G5207 of man G444 shall be G3195 (PresActInd) delivered G3860 (PresPasInf) into G1519 the hands G5495 of men G444.
[45] But G1161 they understood not G50 (ImpfActInd) this G5124 saying G4487, and G2532 it was G2258 (ImpfInd) hid G3871 (PerfPasPtc) from G575 them G846, that G3363 they perceived G143 (Aor2MidDepSubj) it G846 not G3363: and G2532 they feared G5399 (ImpfMidPasDepInd) to ask G2065 (AorActInf) him G846 of G4012 that G5127 saying G4487.
[46] Then G1161 there arose G1525 (Aor2ActInd) a reasoning G1261 among G1722 them G846, which G5101 G302 of them G846 should be G1498 (PresOpt) greatest G3187.
[47] And G1161 Jesus G2424, perceiving G1492 (Aor2ActPtc) the thought G1261 of their G846 heart G2588, took G1949 (Aor2MidDepPtc) a child G3813, and set G2476 (AorActInd) him G846 by G3844 him G1438,
[48] And G2532 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto them G846, Whosoever G3739 G1437 shall receive G1209 (AorMidDepSubj) this G5124 child G3813 in G1909 my G3450 name G3686 receiveth G1209 (PresMidPasDepInd) me G1691: and G2532 whosoever G3739 G1437 shall receive G1209 (AorMidDepSubj) me G1691 receiveth him G1209 (PresMidPasDepInd) that sent G649 (AorActPtc) me G3165: for G1063 he that is G5225 (PresActPtc) least G3398 among G1722 you G5213 all G3956, the same G3778 shall be G2071 (FutInd) great G3173.
[49] And G1161 John G2491 answered G611 (AorPasDepPtc) and said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), Master G1988, we saw G1492 (Aor2ActInd) one G5100 casting out G1544 (PresActPtc) devils G1140 in G1909 thy G4675 name G3686; and G2532 we forbad G2967 (AorActInd) him G846, because
