18:3 and there was a widow in that city; and she came oft unto him, saying, Avenge me of mine adversary.
18:4 And he would not for a while: but afterward he said within himself, Though I fear not God, nor regard man;
18:5 yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest she wear me out by her continual coming.
18:7 And shall not God avenge his elect, that cry to him day and night, and `yet' he is longsuffering over them?
18:8 I say unto you, that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?
18:9 And he spake also this parable unto certain who trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and set all others at nought:
18:11 The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as the rest of men, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican.
18:13 But the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote his breast, saying, God, be thou merciful to me a sinner.
18:14 I say unto you, This man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be humbled; but he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.
18:15 And they were bringing unto him also their babes, that he should touch them: but when the disciples saw it, they rebuked them.
18:16 But Jesus called them unto him, saying, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for to such belongeth the kingdom of God.
18:17 Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall in no wise enter therein.
18:20 Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Honor thy father and mother.
18:22 And when Jesus heard it, he said unto him, One thing thou lackest yet: sell all that thou hast, and distribute unto the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, follow me.
18:24 And Jesus seeing him said, How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God!
18:25 For it is easier for a camel to enter in through a needle's eye, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.
18:29 And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or wife, or brethren, or parents, or children, for the kingdom of God's sake,
18:31 And he took unto him the twelve, and said unto them, Behold, we go up to Jerusalem, and all the things that are written through the prophets shall be accomplished unto the Son of man.
18:32 For he shall be delivered up unto the Gentiles, and shall be mocked, and shamefully treated, and spit upon:
18:34 And they understood none of these things; and this saying was hid from them, and they perceived not the things that were said.
18:35 And it came to pass, as he drew nigh unto Jericho, a certain blind man sat by the way side begging:
18:39 And they that went before rebuked him, that he should hold his peace: but he cried out the more a great deal, Thou son of David, have mercy on me.
18:40 And Jesus stood, and commanded him to be brought unto him: and when he was come near, he asked him,
18:43 And immediately he received his sight, and followed him, glorifying God: and all the people, when they saw it, gave praise unto God.
