§ 15Lk. 7, 40.Lk. 7, 41.1Jesus answered and said unto him, Simon, I have something to say unto thee. And2 he said unto him, Say on, my Master. Jesus said unto him, There were two debtors to one creditor;Arabic, p. 58 and one of them owed five hundred pence, and the other3 owed fifty pence. And because they had not wherewith to pay, he forgave4 them both. Which of them ought to love him more? Simon answered and said,Lk. 7, 42.Lk. 7, 43. I suppose, he to whom he forgave most. Jesus said unto him, Thou hast judged rightly.Lk. 7, 44.5 And he turned to that woman, and said to Simon, Dost thou see this woman? I entered into thy dwelling, and thou gavest me not water to wash my feet: but this6woman hath bathed6 my feet with her tears, and dried them with her hair.Lk. 7, 45. And thou kissedst me not: but this woman, since she7 entered, hath not ceased to kiss my7 feet. And thou anointedst not my head with oil:8Lk. 7, 46.Lk. 7, 47. but this woman hath anointed8 my feet with sweet ointment. And for this, I say unto thee, Her many sins are forgiven her, because she loved much; for he to whom little is forgiven loveth little.Lk. 7, 48.Lk. 7, 49.Lk. 7, 50.9, 10 And he said unto that woman, Thy sins are forgiven thee. And those that were invited11 began to say within themselves, Who is this that forgiveth sins also? And Jesus said to that woman, Thy faith hath saved thee; go in peace.
Jo. 2, 23b.Jo. 2, 24.Jo. 2, 25.12And many believed in him when they saw the signs which he was doing.13, 14 But Jesus did not trust1 himself to them, for he knew every man, and he needed not any man to testify to him concerning every man; for he knew what was in man.
Lk. 10, 1.15And after that, Jesus set apart from his disciples other seventy, and sent them two and two before his face to every region and city whither he was purposing to16 go. And he said unto them, The harvest is abundant, and the labourers are few:Lk. 10, 2.Lk. 10, 3.Lk. 10, 4.Lk. 10, 5.Lk. 10, 6.Lk. 10, 7.17 entreat now the Lord of the harvest, that he send forth labourers into his harvest. Go18 ye: and lo, I am sending you as lambs among wolves. Take not with you19 purses, nor a wallet, nor shoes; neither salute any man in the way. And20 whatsoever house ye enter,Arabic, p. 59 first salute that house: and if there be there a son of peace,21 let your peace rest upon him; but if there be not, your peace shall return to you. And be ye in that house eating and drinking what they have:2 for the labourer is worthy of22 his hire. And remove not from house to house. And into whatsoever city ye enter,Lk. 10, 8.Lk. 10, 9.Lk. 10, 10.23 and they receive you, eat what is presented to you: and heal the sick that are24 therein, and say unto them, The kingdom of God is come near unto you. But whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you not, go out into the market, and say,25 Even the dust that clave to our feet from your city, we shake off against you;Lk. 10, 11.Lk. 10, 12. but26 know3 this,4 that the kingdom of God is come near unto you. I say unto you, that for Sodom there shall be quiet in the day of judgement, but there shall not be for27 that city.Mt. 11, 20.Mt. 11, 21. Then began Jesus to rebuke the cities in which there had been many28 mighty works,5 and they repented not. And he said, Woe unto thee, Chorazin! woe unto thee, Bethsaida! if there had been in Tyre and Sidon the signs which were in29 thee, it may be that they would have repented in sackcloth and ashes.Mt. 11, 22. Howbeit I say unto you, that for Tyre and Sidon there shall be rest in the day of judgement,30 more than for you. And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted unto heaven,Mt. 11, 23. shalt sink down unto Hades; for if there had been in Sodom the wonders6 which were31 in thee, it would have remained until this day.Mt. 11, 24. And now I say unto thee, that for the land of Sodom there shall be quiet in the day of judgement, more than for thee.
Arabic, p. 6032And he said again unto his apostles, Whosoever heareth you heareth me; and whosoever heareth me heareth him that sent me:Lk. 10, 16. and whosoever wrongeth7 you wrongeth me; and whosoever wrongeth me wrongeth him that sent me.
33And those seventy returned with great joy, and said unto him,Lk. 10, 17.Lk. 10, 18.Lk. 10, 19. Our Lord, even34 the devils also are subject unto us in thy name. He said unto them, I beheld35 Satan8 fallen like lightning from heaven. Behold, I am giving you authority to tread upon serpents and scorpions, and the whole race9 of the enemy;Lk. 10, 20. and nothing shall36 hurt you. Only ye must not rejoice that the devils are subject unto you; but be glad that your names are written in heaven.
37And in that hour Jesus rejoiced in the Holy Spirit, and said,Lk. 10, 21. I acknowledge thee, my Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou didst hide these things from the wise and understanding, and didst reveal them unto children: yea, my Father; so38 was thy will. And he turned to his disciples,10 and said unto them,Lk. 10, 22. Everything hath been delivered to me of my Father: and no man knoweth who the Son is, save the Father; and who the Father is, save the Son, and to whomsoever the Son willeth39 to reveal him. Come unto me, all of you,Mt. 11, 28.Mt. 11, 29.Mt. 11, 30. ye that are wearied and bearers of burdens,40 and I will give you rest. Bear my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for11 I41 am gentle and lowly in my heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is pleasant, and my burden is light.
42And while great multitudes were going with him, he turned, and said unto them,Lk. 14, 25.Lk. 14, 26.43 Whosoever cometh unto me, and hateth not his father, and his mother, and his brethren, and his sisters, and his wife, and his children, and himself12 also, cannot44 be a disciple to me.Arabic, p. 61 And whosoever doth not take his cross, and follow45 me, cannot be a disciple to me. Which of you desireth to build a tower,Lk. 14, 27.Lk. 14, 28. and doth not sit down first and reckon his expenses and whether he hath enough to46 complete it?1 lest, when he hath laid the foundations, and is not able to finish,Lk. 14, 29.Lk. 14, 30.Lk. 14, 31. all that47 behold him2 laugh at him, and say, This man began to build, and was not able to48 finish. Or what king goeth to the battle to fight with another king,3 and doth not consider first whether he is able with ten thousand to meet him that cometh to him49 with twenty thousand? And if he is not able,Lk. 14, 32.Lk. 14, 33. he sendeth unto him while he is afar50 off, and seeketh peace. So shall4 every man of you consider, that desireth to be a disciple to me; for if he renounceth not all that he hath, he cannot be a disciple to me.
