Luke 7:1-10 .
Jesus heals the servant of a centurion.
1. After he had finished all his words to the people who heard him, he went into Capernaum.
2. And the servant of a centurion who was dear to him, was sick and dying.
3. When he heard about Jesus, he sent elders of the Jews, asking him to come and heal his servant.
4. And they came to Jesus, made their request warmly, saying it is worth you grant this;
5. He loves our nation, and has built us a synagogue.
6. And Jesus went with them. But when they were not far from the house, the centurion sent friends to him , saying, Lord, do not bother, I am not worthy to receive you under my roof ;
7. It did not even think myself worthy to come to you, but say the word, and my servant shall be healed.
8. I also am a man set under authority, and I have soldiers under me, and I say this: Go, go, and to another, Come, and come to my servant, Do this, and do it.
9. When Jesus heard this he marveled at him, and turned and said to the people who followed him: I say that even in Israel have I found such faith.
10. And back home who had been sent, found the servant who had been ill.

Luke 7:11-17 .
Jesus raises the son of the widow of Nain.
11. Now after that he went to the city called Nain, and went with him many of his disciples and a large crowd.
12. When he came near the gate of the city, behold, they had to bury a deceased, only son of his mother, who was a widow, and had with her a lot of people in the city.
13. And when the Lord saw her, took pity on her and said: Do not cry.
14. He came and touched the bier: and they that bare him stood still. And he said, Young man, I tell you , arise.
15. Then who was dead sat up and began to speak. And gave him to her mother.
16. And all were afraid, and glorified God, saying, A great prophet has risen among us, and God has visited his people.
17. And his fame spread throughout Judea, and throughout the surrounding region .

Luke 7:18-35
The messengers of John the Baptist.
18. John's disciples gave him the news of these things. And John called two of his disciples.
19. And he sent Jesus, to ask : Are you the one who was to come, or look for another?
20. Where, then, the men came to him said, John the Baptist has sent us to you, to ask : Are you the one who was to come , or look for another?
21. In that same hour He cured many of diseases and plagues and evil spirits, and to many blind He gave sight.
22. And Jesus answered and said unto them, go and tell John what you have seen and heard: the blind see, the lame walk , lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, the poor have the gospel.
23. And blessed is he who is not offended me.
24. When the messengers of John, John began to say to people: What did you go to see the desert? A reed shaken by the wind?
25. But what went ye out to see? A man clothed in soft garments? Here, those beautiful dress and live in luxury in the palaces of kings are.
26. But what went ye out to see? What a prophet? If I say, and more than a prophet.
27. This is he of whom it is written: Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, Which shall prepare thy way before thee.
28. I tell you, among those born of women there is no greater prophet than John the Baptist, but the least in the kingdom of God is greater than he.
29. And all the people and the publicans, when they heard, justified God, being baptized with the baptism of John.
30. But the Pharisees and the lawyers rejected the counsel of God against themselves, not having been baptized by John.
31. And the Lord said: Why, then, buy the men of this generation, and Achaeans are similar?
32. They are like children sitting in the square, which they sing each other and say, 'We played the flute, and did not dance, we wailed, and ye have not wept.
33. Because John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking wine, and you say : He hath a Evil.
34. The Son of Man has come eating and drinking, and say: This man is a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of publicans and sinners.
35. But wisdom is justified of all her children.
Luke 7:36-50 .
Jesus in the home of Simon the Pharisee.
36. One of the Pharisees asked Him to eat with him. And when he entered the Pharisee's house , sat.
37. Then a city woman who was a sinner, knowing that Jesus was at table in the Pharisee's house, brought an alabaster jar of perfume;
38. And from behind him at his feet, crying, began to wash his feet with tears and wiped them with her hair and kissed his feet, and anointed them with perfume.
39. When he saw the Pharisee who had invited, he said to himself : This man, if he were a prophet , would know who and what kind of woman this is who touches him, she is a sinner.
40. Jesus answered and said unto him, Simon , I have something to say. And he said, Master.
41. A lender had two debtors: one owed five hundred denarii and the other fifty.
42. And people had no money to pay, he forgave them both. Tell me therefore which of them will love him more?
43. Simon answered and said: I think that one whom he forgave more. And he said, Thou hast rightly judged.
44. And turning to the woman and said to Simon, Seest thou this woman? I entered your house , you gave me no water for my feet, but she has washed My feet with her tears and wiped them with her hair.
45. You gave me no kiss, but she, since I came in hath not ceased to kiss my feet.
46. You did not anoint my head with oil, but she has anointed my feet with perfume.
47. Therefore I tell you, her many sins are forgiven, for she loved much : but he to whom little is forgiven , loves little.
48. And she said, Your sins are forgiven.
49. And those who sat at the table, began to say among themselves, Who is this who even forgives sins?
50. But he told the woman : Your faith has saved you, go in peace.
