Luke Chapter 14
14:1 And it came to pass, as he went into the house of one of the chief
Pharisees to eat bread on the sabbath day, that they watched him.
14:2 And, behold, there was a certain man before him which had the
14:3 And Jesus answering spake unto the lawyers and Pharisees, saying,
Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath day?
14:4 And they held their peace. And he took him, and healed him, and let
14:5 And answered them, saying, Which of you shall have an ass or an ox
fallen into a pit, and will not straightway pull him out on the sabbath
14:6 And they could not answer him again to these things.
14:7 And he put forth a parable to those which were bidden, when he
marked how they chose out the chief rooms; saying unto them.
14:8 When thou art bidden of any man to a wedding, sit not down in the
highest room; lest a more honourable man than thou be bidden of him;
14:9 And he that bade thee and him come and say to thee, Give this man
place; and thou begin with shame to take the lowest room.
14:10 But when thou art bidden, go and sit down in the lowest room; that
when he that bade thee cometh, he may say unto thee, Friend, go up
higher: then shalt thou have worship in the presence of them that sit at
meat with thee.
14:11 For whosoever exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that
humbleth himself shall be exalted.
14:12 Then said he also to him that bade him, When thou makest a dinner
or a supper, call not thy friends, nor thy brethren, neither thy
kinsmen, nor thy rich neighbours; lest they also bid thee again, and a
recompence be made thee.
14:13 But when thou makest a feast, call the poor, the maimed, the lame,
14:14 And thou shalt be blessed; for they cannot recompense thee: for
thou shalt be recompensed at the resurrection of the just.
14:15 And when one of them that sat at meat with him heard these things,
he said unto him, Blessed is he that shall eat bread in the kingdom of
14:16 Then said he unto him, A certain man made a great supper, and bade
14:17 And sent his servant at supper time to say to them that were
bidden, Come; for all things are now ready.
14:18 And they all with one consent began to make excuse. The first said
unto him, I have bought a piece of ground, and I must needs go and see
it: I pray thee have me excused.
14:19 And another said, I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to
prove them: I pray thee have me excused.
14:20 And another said, I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot
14:21 So that servant came, and shewed his lord these things. Then the
master of the house being angry said to his servant, Go out quickly into
the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in hither the poor, and the
maimed, and the halt, and the blind.
14:22 And the servant said, Lord, it is done as thou hast commanded, and
yet there is room.
14:23 And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and
hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.
14:24 For I say unto you, That none of those men which were bidden shall
taste of my supper.
14:25 And there went great multitudes with him: and he turned, and said
14:26 If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and
wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life
also, he cannot be my disciple.
14:27 And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot
be my disciple.
14:28 For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down
first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it?
14:29 Lest haply, after he hath laid the foundation, and is not able to
finish it, all that behold it begin to mock him,
14:30 Saying, This man began to build, and was not able to finish.
14:31 Or what king, going to make war against another king, sitteth not
down first, and consulteth whether he be able with ten thousand to meet
him that cometh against him with twenty thousand?
14:32 Or else, while the other is yet a great way off, he sendeth an
ambassage, and desireth conditions of peace.
14:33 So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he
hath, he cannot be my disciple.
14:34 Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith
shall it be seasoned?
14:35 It is neither fit for the land, nor yet for the dunghill; but men
cast it out. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.
Go ye therefore, and teach
all nations, baptizing them in
the name of the Father, and of
the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
