katapi HOME Luke 18:1-8 - The Parable of the Widow and the Judge  Lk.18.1-8 (borders of Samaria)

18 1 And he told them a parable, to the effect that they ought always to pray and not lose heart. 18 2 He said, "In a certain city there was a judge who neither feared God nor regarded man; 18 3 and there was a widow in that city who kept coming to him and saying, 'Vindicate me against my adversary.' 18 4 For a while he refused; but afterward he said to himself, 'Though I neither fear God nor regard man, 18 5 yet because this widow bothers me, I will vindicate her, or she will wear me out by her continual coming.' " 18 6 And the Lord said, "Hear what the unrighteous judge says. 18 7 And will not God vindicate his elect, who cry to him day and night? Will he delay long over them? 18 8 I tell you, he will vindicate them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of man comes, will he find faith on earth?"
