7:1 After he had ended all his sayings in the ears of the people, he entered into Capernaum.
7:2 And a certain centurion`s servant, who was dear unto him, was sick and at the point of death.
7:3 And when he heard concerning Jesus, he sent unto him elders of the Jews, asking him that he would come and save his servant.
7:4 And they, when they came to Jesus, besought him earnestly, saying, He is worthy that thou shouldest do this for him;
7:5 for he loveth our nation, and himself built us our synagogue.
7:6 And Jesus went with them. And when he was now not far from the house, the centurion sent friends to him, saying unto him, Lord, trouble not thyself; for I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof:
7:7 wherefore neither thought I myself worthy to come unto thee: but say the word, and my servant shall be healed.
7:8 For I also am a man set under authority, having under myself soldiers: and I say to this one, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it.
7:9 And when Jesus heard these things, he marvelled at him, and turned and said unto the multitude that followed him, I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.
7:10 And they that were sent, returning to the house, found the servant whole.
7:11 And it came to pass soon afterwards, that he went to a city called Nain; and his disciples went with him, and a great multitude.
7:12 Now when he drew near to the gate of the city, behold, there was carried out one that was dead, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow: and much people of the city was with her.
7:13 And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her, and said unto her, Weep not.
7:14 And he came nigh and touched the bier: and the bearers stood still. And he said, Young man, I say unto thee, Arise.
7:15 And he that was dead sat up, and began to speak. And he gave him to his mother.
7:18 And the disciples of John told him of all these things.
7:21 In that hour he cured many of diseases and plagues and evil spirits; and on many that were blind he bestowed sight.
7:22 And he answered and said unto them, Go and tell John the things which ye have seen and heard; the blind receive their sight, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, the poor have good tidings preached to them.
7:23 And blessed is he, whosoever shall find no occasion of stumbling in me.
7:24 And when the messengers of John were departed, he began to say unto the multitudes concerning John, What went ye out into the wilderness to behold? a reed shaken with the wind?
7:25 But what went ye out to see? a man clothed in soft raiment? Behold, they that are gorgeously apparelled, and live delicately, are in kings` courts.
7:26 But what went ye out to see? a prophet? Yea, I say unto you, and much more than a prophet.
7:27 This is he of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, Who shall prepare thy way before thee.
7:31 Whereunto then shall I liken the men of this generation, and to what are they like?
7:32 They are like unto children that sit in the marketplace, and call one to another; who say, We piped unto you, and ye did not dance; we wailed, and ye did not weep.
7:35 And wisdom is justified of all her children.
7:36 And one of the Pharisees desired him that he would eat with him. And he entered into the Pharisee`s house, and sat down to meat.
7:37 And behold, a woman who was in the city, a sinner; and when she knew that he was sitting at meat in the Pharisee`s house, she brought an alabaster cruse of ointment,
7:39 Now when the Pharisee that had bidden him saw it, he spake within himself, saying, This man, if he were a prophet, would have perceived who and what manner of woman this is that toucheth him, that she is a sinner.
7:40 And Jesus answering said unto him, Simon, I have somewhat to say unto thee. And he saith, Teacher, say on.
7:41 A certain lender had two debtors: the one owed five hundred shillings, and the other fifty.
7:42 When they had not [wherewith] to pay, he forgave them both. Which of them therefore will love him most?
7:43 Simon answered and said, He, I suppose, to whom he forgave the most. And he said unto him, Thou hast rightly judged.
7:44 And turning to the woman, he said unto Simon, Seest thou this woman? I entered into thy house, thou gavest me no water for my feet: but she hath wetted my feet with her tears, and wiped them with her hair.
7:48 And he said unto her, Thy sins are forgiven.
7:49 And they that sat at meat with him began to say within themselves, Who is this that even forgiveth sins?
7:50 And he said unto the woman, Thy faith hath saved thee; go in peace.
