THE HOLY BIBLE

The Gospel According to Luke Chapter 14:1-35

 

 

Luke 14:1 On a sabbath he went to dine at the home of one of the leading Pharisees, and the people there were observing him carefully.

 

 

Luke 14:1 On a sabbath he went to dine at the home of one of the leading Pharisees, and the people there were observing him carefully.

 

Luke 14:2 In front of him there was a man suffering from dropsy. 

 

Luke 14:3 Jesus spoke to the scholars of the law and Pharisees in reply, asking, "Is it lawful to cure on the sabbath or not?"

 

Luke 14:4 But they kept silent; so he took the man and, after he had healed him, dismissed him.

 

Luke 14:5 Then he said to them, "Who among you, if your son or ox  falls into a cistern, would not immediately pull him out on the sabbath day?"

 

Luke 14:6 But they were unable to answer his question.

 

Luke 14:7 He told a parable to those who had been invited, noticing how they were choosing the places of honor at the table.

 

Luke 14:8 "When you are invited by someone to a wedding banquet, do not recline at table in the place of honor. A more distinguished guest than you may have been invited by him,

 

Luke 14:9 and the host who invited both of you may approach you and say, 'Give your place to this man,' and then you would proceed with embarrassment to take the lowest place.

 

Luke 14:10 Rather, when you are invited, go and take the lowest place so that when the host comes to you he may say, 'My friend, move up to a higher position.' Then you will enjoy the esteem of your companions at the table.

 

Luke 14:11 For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but the one who humbles himself will be exalted."

 

Luke 14:12 Then he said to the host who invited him, "When you hold a lunch or a dinner, do not invite your friends or your brothers or your relatives or your wealthy neighbors, in case they may invite you back and you have repayment.

 

Luke 14:13 Rather, when you hold a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind;

 

Luke 14:14 blessed indeed will you be because of their inability to repay you. For you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous."

 

Luke 14:15 One of his fellow guests on hearing this said to him, "Blessed is the one who will dine in the kingdom of God."

 

Luke 14:16 He replied to him, "A man gave a great dinner to which he invited many.

 

Luke 14:17 When the time for the dinner came, he dispatched his servant to say to those invited, 'Come, everything is now ready.'

 

Luke 14:18 But one by one, they all began to excuse themselves. The first said to him, 'I have purchased a field and must go to examine it; I ask you, consider me excused.'

 

Luke 14:19 And another said, 'I have purchased five yoke of oxen and am on my way to evaluate them; I ask you, consider me excused.'

 

Luke 14:20 And another said, 'I have just married a woman, and therefore I cannot come.'

 

Luke 14:21 The servant went and reported this to his master. Then the master of the house in a rage commanded his servant, 'Go out quickly into the streets and alleys of the town and bring in here the poor and the crippled, the blind and the lame.'

 

Luke 14:22 The servant reported, 'Sir, your orders have been carried out and still there is room.'

 

Luke 14:23 The master then ordered the servant, 'Go out to the highways and hedgerows and make people come in that my home may be filled.

 

Luke 14:24 For, I tell you, none of those men who were invited will taste my dinner.'"

 

Luke 14:25 Great crowds were traveling with him, and he turned and addressed them,

 

Luke 14:26 "If any one comes to me without hating his father  and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters, and even his own life, he cannot be my disciple.

 

Luke 14:27 Whoever does not carry his own cross and come after me cannot be my disciple.

 

Luke 14:28 Which of you wishing to construct a tower does not first sit down and calculate the cost to see if there is enough for its completion?

 

Luke 14:29 Otherwise, after laying the foundation and finding himself unable to finish the work the onlookers should laugh at him

 

Luke 14:30 and say, 'This one began to build but did not have the resources to finish.'

 

Luke 14:31 Or what king marching into battle would not first sit down and decide whether with ten thousand troops he can successfully oppose another king advancing upon him with twenty thousand troops?

 

Luke 14:32 But if not, while he is still far away, he will send a delegation to ask for peace terms.

 

Luke 14:33 In the same way, everyone of you who does not renounce all his possessions cannot be my disciple.

 

Luke 14:34 "Salt is good, but if salt itself loses its taste, with what can its flavor be restored?

 

Luke 14:35 It is fit neither for the soil nor for the manure pile; it is thrown out. Whoever has ears to hear ought to hear."
