11:1 It happened that when Jesus had finished directing his twelve disciples, he departed there to teach and preach in their cities.
11:2 Now when John heard in the prison the works of Christ, he sent two of his disciples
11:3 and said to him, "Are you he who comes, or should we look for another?"
11:4 Jesus answered them, "Go and tell John the things which you hear and see:
11:5 the blind receive their sight, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have good news preached to them.
11:6 Blessed is he, whoever finds no occasion for stumbling in me."
11:7 As these went their way, Jesus began to say to the multitudes concerning John, "What did you go out into the wilderness to see? A reed shaken with the wind?
11:9 But why did you go out? To see a prophet? Yes, I tell you, and much more than a prophet.
11:10 For this is he, of whom it is written, `Behold, I send my messenger before your face, who will prepare your way before you.`
11:11 Most assuredly I tell you, among those who are born of women there has not arisen anyone greater than John the Baptizer; yet he who is least in the Kingdom of Heaven is greater than he.
11:12 From the days of John the Baptizer until now, the Kingdom of Heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force.
11:13 For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John.
11:14 If you are willing to receive it, this is Elijah, who is to come.
11:15 He who has ears to hear, let him hear.
11:16 But what will I compare this generation to? It is like children sitting in the marketplaces, who call to their companions
11:17 and say, `We played the flute for you, and you didn`t dance. We mourned for you, and you didn`t lament.`
11:20 Then he began to denounce the cities in which most of his mighty works were done, because they didn`t repent.
11:26 Yes, Father, for so it was well-pleasing in your sight.
11:27 All things have been delivered to me by my Father. No one knows the Son, except the Father; neither does anyone know the Father, except the Son, and he to whoever the Son wants to reveal him.
11:28 Come to me, all you who labor and are heavily burdened, and I will give you rest.
11:29 Take my yoke on you, and learn from me, for I am humble and lowly in heart; and you will find rest for your souls.
11:30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
