11:2 He said to them, "When you pray, say, `Our Father in heaven, May your name be kept holy. May your kingdom come. May your desire be done on Earth, as it is in heaven.
11:4 Forgive us our sins, for we ourselves also forgive everyone who is indebted to us. Bring us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.`"
11:6 for a friend of mine has come to me from a journey, and I have nothing to set before him,`
11:8 I tell you, although he will not rise and give it to him because he is his friend, yet because of his persistence, he will get up and give him as many as he needs.
11:9 I tell you, keep asking, and it will be given you. Keep seeking, and you will find. Keep knocking, and it will be opened to you.
11:10 For everyone who asks receives. He who seeks finds. To him who knocks it will be opened.
11:12 Or if he asks for an egg, he won`t give him a scorpion, will he?
11:13 If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him?"
11:15 But some of them said, "He casts out demons by Beelzebul, the prince of the demons."
11:16 Others, testing him, sought from him a sign from heaven.
11:18 If Satan also is divided against himself, how will his kingdom stand? Because you say that I cast out demons by Beelzebul.
11:19 But if I cast out demons by Beelzebul, by whom do your sons cast them out? Therefore will they be your judges.
11:21 When the strong man, fully armed, guards his own dwelling, his goods are safe.
11:22 But when someone stronger comes on him, and overcomes him, he takes from him his whole armor in which he trusted, and divides his spoils.
11:23 He that is not with me is against me. He who doesn`t gather with me scatters.
11:25 When he returns, he finds it swept and put in order.
11:26 Then he goes, and takes seven other spirits more evil than himself, and they enter in and dwell there. The last state of that man becomes worse than the first."
11:27 It came to pass, as he said these things, a certain woman out of the multitude lifted up her voice, and said to him, "Blessed is the womb that bore you, and the breasts which nursed you!"
11:28 But he said, "On the contrary, blessed are those who hear the word of God, and keep it."
11:29 When the multitudes were gathering together to him, he began to say, "This is an evil generation. It seeks after a sign. No sign will be given to it but the sign of Jonah, the prophet.
11:30 For even as Jonah became a sign to the Ninevites, so will also the Son of Man be to this generation.
11:31 The Queen of the South will rise up in the judgment with the men of this generation, and will condemn them: for she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and behold, one greater than Solomon is here.
11:32 The men of Nineveh will stand up in the judgment with this generation, and will condemn it: for they repented at the preaching of Jonah, and behold, one greater than Jonah is here.
11:33 No man, when he has lit a lamp, puts it in a cellar, nor under a basket, but on the stand, that they which enter in may see the light.
11:37 Now as he spoke, a certain Pharisee asked him to dine with him. He went in, and sat at the table.
11:38 When the Pharisee saw it, he marveled that he had not first washed himself before dinner.
11:40 You foolish ones, didn`t he who made the outside make the inside also?
11:41 But give for alms those things which are within, and behold, all things will be clean to you.
11:43 Woe to you Pharisees! For you love the best seats in the synagogues, and the greetings in the marketplaces.
11:45 One of the lawyers answered him, "Teacher, in saying this you insult us also."
11:47 Woe to you! For you build the tombs of the prophets, and your fathers killed them.
11:48 So you testify and consent to the works of your fathers. For they killed them, and you build their tombs.
11:50 that the blood of all the prophets, which was shed from the foundation of the world, may be required of this generation;
11:53 As he said these things to them, the scribes and the Pharisees began to be terribly angry, and to draw many things out of him;
11:54 laying in wait for him, and seeking to catch him in something he might say, that they might accuse him.
