1 WHEN HE HAD FINISHED addressing the people, he went to Capernaum. The Healing of a centurion's Servant Lk.7.1-10 (Galilee) - | Mt.8.5-13 | Jn.4.43-45Ἐπειδὴ ἐπλήρωσεν πάντα τὰ ῥήματα αὐτοῦ εἰς τὰς ἀκοὰς τοῦ λαοῦ, εἰσῆλθεν εἰς Καφαρναούμ.
2 A centurion there had a servant whom he valued highly; this servant was ill and near to death.  Ἑκατοντάρχου δέ τινος δοῦλος κακῶς ἐχων ἠμελλεν τελευτᾶν, ὃς ἦν αὐτῷ ἐντιμος.
3 Hearing about Jesus, he sent some Jewish elders with the request that he would come and save his servant's life.  ἀκούσας δὲ περὶ τοῦ Ἰησοῦ ἀπέστειλεν πρὸς αὐτὸν πρεσβυτέρους τῶν Ἰουδαίων, ἐρωτῶν αὐτὸν ὁπως ἐλθὼν διασώσῃ τὸν δοῦλον αὐτοῦ.
4 They approached Jesus and pressed their petition earnestly: 'He deserves this favour from you,'  οἱ δὲ παραγενόμενοι πρὸς τὸν Ἰησοῦν παρεκάλουν αὐτὸν σπουδαίως, λέγοντες ὅτι Ἄξιός ἐστιν ᾧ παρέξῃ τοῦτο,
5 they said, 'for he is a friend of our nation and it is he who built us our synagogue.'  ἀγαπᾷ γὰρ τὸ ἐθνος ἡμῶν καὶ τὴν συναγωγὴν αὐτὸς ᾠκοδόμησεν ἡμῖν.
6 Jesus went with them; but when he was not far from the house, the centurion sent friends with this message: 'Do not trouble further, sir; it is not for me to have you under my roof,  ὁ δὲ Ἰησοῦς ἐπορεύετο σὺν αὐτοῖς. ἠδη δὲ αὐτοῦ οὐ μακρὰν ἀπέχοντος ἀπὸ τῆς οἰκίας ἐπεμψεν φίλους ὁ ἑκατοντάρχης λέγων αὐτῷ, Κύριε, μὴ σκύλλου, οὐ γὰρ ἱκανός εἰμι ἵνα ὑπὸ τὴν στέγην μου εἰσέλθῃς·
7 and that is why I did not presume to approach you in person.  διὸ οὐδὲ ἐμαυτὸν ἠξίωσα πρὸς σὲ ἐλθεῖν· ἀλλὰ εἰπὲ λόγῳ, καὶ ἰαθήτω ὁ παῖς μου.
8 But say the word and my servant will be cured. I know, for in my position I am myself under orders, with soldiers under me. I say to one, "Go", and he goes; to another, "Come here", and he comes; and to my servant, "Do this", and he does it.'  καὶ γὰρ ἐγὼ ἄνθρωπός εἰμι ὑπὸ ἐξουσίαν τασσόμενος, ἐχων ὑπ' ἐμαυτὸν στρατιώτας, καὶ λέγω τούτῳ, Πορεύθητι, καὶ πορεύεται, καὶ ἀλλῳ, Ἔἐρχου, καὶ ἔρχεται, καὶ τῷ δούλῳ μου, Ποίησον τοῦτο, καὶ ποιεῖ.
9 When Jesus heard this, he admired the man, and, turning to the crowd that was following him, he said, 'I tell you, nowhere, even in Israel, have I found faith like this.'  ἀκούσας δὲ ταῦτα ὁ Ἰησοῦς ἐθαύμασεν αὐτόν, καὶ στραφεὶς τῷ ἀκολουθοῦντι αὐτῷ ὀχλῳ εἶπεν, Λέγω ὑμῖν, οὐδὲ ἐν τῷ Ἰσραὴλ τοσαύτην πίστιν εὗρον.
10 And the messengers returned to the house and found the servant in good health.
 καὶ ὑποστρέψαντες εἰς τὸν οἶκον οἱ πεμφθέντες εὗρον τὸν δοῦλον ὑγιαίνοντα.
11 Afterwards [Some witnesses read: On the next day.] Jesus went to a town called Nain, accompanied by his disciples and a large crowd. The Raising of the Widow's Son at Nain  Lk.7.11-17 (Nain) - Καὶ ἐγένετο ἐν τῷ ἑξῆς ἐπορεύθη εἰς πόλιν καλουμένην Ναΐν, καὶ συνεπορεύοντο αὐτῷ οἱ μαθηταὶ αὐτοῦ καὶ ὀχλος πολύς.
12 As he approached the gate of the town he met a funeral. The dead man was the only son of his widowed mother; and many of the townspeople were there with her.  ὡς δὲ ἠγγισεν τῇ πύλῃ τῆς πόλεως, καὶ ἰδοὺ ἐξεκομίζετο τεθνηκὼς μονογενὴς υἱὸς τῇ μητρὶ αὐτοῦ, καὶ αὐτὴ ἦν χήρα, καὶ ὀχλος τῆς πόλεως ἱκανὸς ἦν σὺν αὐτῇ.
13 When the Lord saw her his heart went out to her, and he said, 'Weep no more.'  καὶ ἰδὼν αὐτὴν ὁ κύριος ἐσπλαγχνίσθη ἐπ' αὐτῇ καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῇ, Μὴ κλαῖε.
14 With that he stepped forward and laid his hand on the bier; and the bearers halted. Then he spoke: 'Young man, rise up!'  καὶ προσελθὼν ἡψατο τῆς σοροῦ, οἱ δὲ βαστάζοντες ἐστησαν, καὶ εἶπεν, Νεανίσκε, σοὶ λέγω, ἐγέρθητι.
15 The dead man sat up and began to speak; and Jesus gave him back to his mother.  καὶ ἀνεκάθισεν ὁ νεκρὸς καὶ ἠρξατο λαλεῖν, καὶ ἐδωκεν αὐτὸν τῇ μητρὶ αὐτοῦ.
16 Deep awe fell upon them all, and they praised God. 'A great prophet has arisen among us', they said, and again, 'God has shown his care for his people.'  ἐλαβεν δὲ φόβος πάντας, καὶ ἐδόξαζον τὸν θεὸν λέγοντες ὅτι Προφήτης μέγας ἠγέρθη ἐν ἡμῖν, καὶ ὅτι Ἐπεσκέψατο ὁ θεὸς τὸν λαὸν αὐτοῦ.
17 The story of what he had done ran through all parts of Judaea and the whole neighbourhood.
 καὶ ἐξῆλθεν ὁ λόγος οὗτος ἐν ὁλῃ τῇ Ἰουδαίᾳ περὶ αὐτοῦ καὶ πάσῃ τῇ περιχώρῳ.
18 John too was informed of all this by his disciples. The Messengers from John the Baptist Lk.7.18-35 (Capernaum) - | Mt.11.2-19Καὶ ἀπήγγειλαν Ἰωάννῃ οἱ μαθηταὶ αὐτοῦ περὶ πάντων τούτων. καὶ προσκαλεσάμενος δύο τινὰς τῶν μαθητῶν αὐτοῦ ὁ Ἰωάννης
19 Summoning two of their number he sent them to the Lord with this message: 'Are you the one who is to come, or are we to expect some other?'  ἐπεμψεν πρὸς τὸν κύριον λέγων, Σὺ εἶ ὁ ἐρχόμενος ἢ ἀλλον προσδοκῶμεν;
20 The messengers made their way to Jesus and said, 'John the Baptist has sent us to you: he asks, "Are you the one who is to come, or are we to expect some other?" '  παραγενόμενοι δὲ πρὸς αὐτὸν οἱ ἀνδρες εἶπαν, Ἰωάννης ὁ Βαπτιστὴς ἀπέστειλεν ἡμᾶς πρὸς σὲ λέγων, Σὺ εἶ ὁ ἐρχόμενος ἢ ἀλλον προσδοκῶμεν;
21 There and then he cured many sufferers from diseases, plagues, and evil spirits; and on many blind people he bestowed sight.  ἐν ἐκείνῃ τῇ ὡρᾳ ἐθεράπευσεν πολλοὺς ἀπὸ νόσων καὶ μαστίγων καὶ πνευμάτων πονηρῶν, καὶ τυφλοῖς πολλοῖς ἐχαρίσατο βλέπειν.
22 Then he gave them his answer: 'Go', he said, 'and tell John what you have seen and heard: how the blind recover their sight, the lame walk, the lepers are clean, the deaf hear, the dead are raised to life, the poor are hearing the good news— - The blind receive their sight Lk.7.22 | Mal.3.1καὶ ἀποκριθεὶς εἶπεν αὐτοῖς, Πορευθέντες ἀπαγγείλατε Ἰωάννῃ ἂ εἰδετε καὶ ἠκούσατε· τυφλοὶ ἀναβλέπουσιν, χωλοὶ περιπατοῦσιν, λεπροὶ καθαρίζονται καὶ κωφοὶ ἀκούουσιν, νεκροὶ ἐγείρονται, πτωχοὶ εὐαγγελίζοντα·
23 and happy is the man who does not find me a stumbling-block.'
 καὶ μακάριός ἐστιν ὃς ἐὰν μὴ σκανδαλισθῇ ἐν ἐμοί.
24 After John's messengers had left, Jesus began to speak about him to the crowds: 'What was the spectacle that drew you to the wilderness? A reed-bed swept by the wind?  Ἀπελθόντων δὲ τῶν ἀγγέλων Ἰωάννου ἠρξατο λέγειν πρὸς τοὺς ὀχλους περὶ Ἰωάννου, Τί ἐξήλθατε εἰς τὴν ἐρημον θεάσασθαὶ κάλαμον ὑπὸ ἀνέμου σαλευόμενον;
25 No? Then what did you go out to see? A man dressed in silks and satins? Surely you must look in palaces for grand clothes and luxury.  ἀλλὰ τί ἐξήλθατε ἰδεῖν; ἄνθρωπον ἐν μαλακοῖς ἱματίοις ἠμφιεσμένον; ἰδοὺ οἱ ἐν ἱματισμῷ ἐνδόξῳ καὶ τρυφῇ ὑπάρχοντες ἐν τοῖς βασιλείοις εἰσίν.
26 But what did you go out to see? A prophet? Yes indeed, and far more than a prophet.  ἀλλὰ τί ἐξήλθατε ἰδεῖν; προφήτην; ναί, λέγω ὑμῖν, καὶ περισσότερον προφήτου.
27 He is the man of whom Scripture says,
    "Here is my herald, whom I send on ahead of you,
    And he will prepare your way before you."
 οὗτός ἐστιν περὶ οὗ γέγραπται,

Ἰδοὺ ἀποστέλλω τὸν ἄγγελόν μου πρὸ προσώπου σου,
ὃς κατασκευάσει τὴν ὁδόν σου ἔμπροσθέν
σου.

28 I tell you, there is not a mother's son greater than John, and yet the least in the kingdom of God is greater than he.'  λέγω ὑμῖν, μείζων ἐν γεννητοῖς γυναικῶν Ἰωάννου οὐδείς ἐστιν· ὁ δὲ μικρότερος ἐν τῇ βασιλείᾳ τοῦ θεοῦ μείζων αὐτοῦ ἐστιν.
29 When they heard him, all the people, including the tax-gatherers, praised God, for they had accepted John's baptism;  (Καὶ πᾶς ὁ λαὸς ἀκούσας καὶ οἱ τελῶναι ἐδικαίωσαν τὸν θεόν, βαπτισθέντες τὸ βάπτισμα Ἰωάννου·
30 but the Pharisees and lawyers, who refused his baptism, had rejected [Or: ' ... greater than he. And all the people, including the tax-gatherers, when they heard him, accepted John's baptism and acknowledged the righteous dealing of God; but the Pharisees and lawyers, by refusing his baptism, rejected ... '] God's purpose for themselves.  οἱ δὲ Φαρισαῖοι καὶ οἱ νομικοὶ τὴν βουλὴν τοῦ θεοῦ ἠθέτησαν εἰς ἑαυτούς,
μὴ βαπτισθέντες ὑπ' αὐτοῦ.)
31 'How can I describe the people of this generation? What are they like?  Τίνι οὖν ὁμοιώσω τοὺς ἀνθρώπους τῆς γενεᾶς ταύτης, καὶ τίνι εἰσὶν ὁμοιοὶ;
32 They are like children sitting in the market-place and shouting at each other,
    "We piped for you and you would not dance."
    "We wept and wailed, and you would not mourn."
 ὁμοιοί εἰσιν παιδίοις τοῖς ἐν ἀγορᾷ καθημένοις καὶ προσφωνοῦσιν ἀλλήλοις, ἂ λέγει,

Ηὐλήσαμεν ὑμῖν καὶ οὐκ ὠρχήσασθε·
ἐθρηνήσαμεν καὶ οὐκ ἐκλαύσατε.

33 For John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking wine, and you say, "He is possessed."  ἐλήλυθεν γὰρ Ἰωάννης ὁ Βαπτιστὴς μὴ ἐσθίων ἀρτον μήτε πίνων οἶνον, καὶ λέγετε, Δαιμόνιον ἐχει·
34 The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and you say, "Look at him! a glutton and a drinker, a friend of tax-gatherers and sinners!"  ἐλήλυθεν ὁ υἱὸς τοῦ ἀνθρώπου ἐσθίων καὶ πίνων, καὶ λέγετε, Ἰδοὺ ἄνθρωπος φάγος καὶ οἰνοπότης, φίλος τελωνῶν καὶ ἀμαρτωλῶν.
35 And yet God's wisdom is proved right by all who are her children.'
 καὶ ἐδικαιώθη ἡ σοφία ἀπὸ πάντων τῶν τέκνων αὐτῆς.
36 One of the Pharisees invited him to dinner; he went to the Pharisee's house and took his place at table. A Sinful Woman Forgiven Lk.7.36-50 (Capernaum) - Ἠρώτα δέ τις αὐτὸν τῶν Φαρισαίων ἵνα φάγῃ μετ' αὐτοῦ· καὶ εἰσελθὼν εἰς τὸν οἶκον τοῦ Φαρισαίου κατεκλίθη.
37 A woman who was living an immoral life in the town had learned that Jesus was dining in the Pharisee's house and had brought oil of myrrh in a small flask.  καὶ ἰδοὺ γυνὴ ἡτις ἦν ἐν τῇ πόλει ἀμαρτωλός, καὶ ἐπιγνοῦσα ὅτι κατάκειται ἐν τῇ οἰκίᾳ τοῦ Φαρισαίου, κομίσασα ἀλάβαστρον μύρου
38 She took her place behind him, by his feet, weeping. His feet were wetted with her tears and she wiped them with her hair, kissing them and anointing them with the myrrh.  καὶ στᾶσα ὀπίσω παρὰ τοὺς πόδας αὐτοῦ κλαίουσα, τοῖς δάκρυσιν ἠρξατο βρέχειν τοὺς πόδας αὐτοῦ καὶ ταῖς θριξὶν τῆς κεφαλῆς αὐτῆς ἐξέμασσεν, καὶ κατεφίλει τοὺς πόδας αὐτοῦ καὶ ἠλειφεν τῷ μύρῳ.
39 When his host the Pharisee saw this he said to himself, 'If this fellow were a real prophet, he would know who this woman is that touches him, and what sort of woman she is, a sinner.'  ἰδὼν δὲ ὁ Φαρισαῖος ὁ καλέσας αὐτὸν εἶπεν ἐν ἑαυτῷ λέγων, Οὗτος εἰ ἦν προφήτης, ἐγίνωσκεν ἂν τίς καὶ ποταπὴ ἡ γυνὴ ἡτις ἀπτεται αὐτοῦ, ὅτι ἀμαρτωλός ἐστιν.
40 Jesus took him up and said, 'Simon, I have something to say to you.' 'Speak on. Master', said he.  καὶ ἀποκριθεὶς ὁ Ἰησοῦς εἶπεν πρὸς αὐτόν, Σίμων, ἐχω σοί τι εἰπεῖν. ὁ δέ, Διδάσκαλε, εἰπέ, φησίν.
41 'Two men were in debt to a money-lender: one owed him five hundred silver pieces, the other fifty.  δύο χρεοφειλέται ἦσαν δανιστῇ τινι· ὁ εἷς ὠφειλεν δηνάρια πεντακόσια, ὁ δὲ ἑτερος πεντήκοντα.
42 As neither had anything to pay with he let them both off. Now, which will love him most?'  μὴ ἐχόντων αὐτῶν ἀποδοῦναι ἀμφοτέροις ἐχαρίσατο. τίς οὖν αὐτῶν πλεῖον ἀγαπήσει αὐτόν;
43 Simon replied, 'I should think the one that was let off most.' 'You are right', said Jesus.  ἀποκριθεὶς Σίμων εἶπεν, Ὑπολαμβάνω ὅτι ᾧ τὸ πλεῖον ἐχαρίσατο. ὁ δὲ εἶπεν αὐτῷ, Ὀρθῶς ἐκρινας.
44 Then turning to the woman, he said to Simon, 'You see this woman? I came to your house: you provided no water for my feet; but this woman has made my feet wet with her tears and wiped them with her hair.  καὶ στραφεὶς πρὸς τὴν γυναῖκα τῷ Σίμωνι ἐφη, Βλέπεις ταύτην τὴν γυναῖκὰ; εἰσῆλθόν σου εἰς τὴν οἰκίαν, ὑδωρ μοι ἐπὶ πόδας οὐκ ἐδωκας· αὑτη δὲ τοῖς δάκρυσιν ἐβρεξέν μου τοὺς πόδας καὶ ταῖς θριξὶν αὑτῆς ἐξέμαξεν.
45 You gave me no kiss; but she has been kissing my feet ever since I came in.  φίλημά μοι οὐκ ἐδωκας· αὑτη δὲ ἀφ' ἧς εἰσῆλθον οὐ διέλιπεν καταφιλοῦσά μου τοὺς πόδας.
46 You did not anoint my head with oil; but she has anointed my feet with myrrh.  ἐλαίῳ τὴν κεφαλήν μου οὐκ ἠλειψας· αὑτη δὲ μύρῳ ἠλειψεν τοὺς πόδας μου.
47 And so, I tell you, her great love proves that her many sins have been forgiven; where little has been forgiven, little love is shown.'  οὗ χάριν λέγω σοι, ἀφέωνται αἱ ἀμαρτίαι αὐτῆς αἱ πολλαί, ὅτι ἠγάπησεν πολύ· ᾧ δὲ ὀλίγον ἀφίεται, ὀλίγον ἀγαπᾷ.
48 Then he said to her, 'Your sins are forgiven.'  εἶπεν δὲ αὐτῇ, Ἀφέωνταί σου αἱ ἀμαρτίαι.
49 The other guests began to ask themselves, 'Who is this, that he can forgive sins?'  καὶ ἠρξαντο οἱ συνανακείμενοι λέγειν ἐν ἑαυτοῖς, Τίς οὗτός ἐστιν ὃς καὶ ἀμαρτίας ἀφίησιν;
50 But he said to the woman, 'Your faith has saved you; go in peace.'
 εἶπεν δὲ πρὸς τὴν γυναῖκα, Ἡ πίστις σου σέσωκέν σε· πορεύου εἰς εἰρήνην.
