 <<  Lukas 14 >> 

1ONE sabbath he went to have a meal in the house of one of the leading Pharisees; and they were watching him closely.

2There, in front of him, was a man suffering from dropsy,

3and Jesus asked the lawyers and the Pharisees: “Is it permitted to heal people on the sabbath or not?”

4They said nothing. So he took the man, cured him, and sent him away.

5Then he turned to them and said, “If one of you has a son or an ox that falls into a well, will he hesitate to pull him out on the sabbath day?”

6To this they could find no reply.

7When he noticed how the guests were trying to secure the places of honour, he spoke to them in a parable:

8“When somebody asks you to a wedding feast, do not sit down in the place of honour. It may be that some person more distinguished than yourself has been invited;

9and the host will come to say to you, ‘Give this man your seat.’ Then you will look foolish as you go to take the lowest place.

10No, when you receive an invitation, go and sit down in the lowest place, so that when your host comes he will say, ‘Come up higher, my friend.’ Then all your fellow-guests will see the respect in which you are held.

11For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled; and whoever humbles himself will be exalted.”

12Then he said to his host, “When you are having guests for lunch or supper, do not invite your friends, your brothers or other relations, or your rich neighbours; they will only ask you back again and so you will be repaid.

13But when you give a party, ask the poor, the crippled, the lame, and the blind.

14That is the way to find happiness, because they have no means of repaying you. You will be repaid on the day when the righteous rise from the dead.”

15Hearing this one of the company said to him, “Happy are those who will sit at the feast in the kingdom of God!”

16Jesus answered, “A man was giving a big dinner party and had sent out many invitations.

17At dinner-time he sent his servant to tell his guests, ‘Come please, everything is now ready.’

18One after another they all sent excuses. The first said, ‘I have bought a piece of land, and I must go and inspect it; please accept my apologies.’

19The second said, ‘I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I am on my way to try them out; please accept my apologies.’

20The next said, ‘I cannot come; I have just got married.’

21When the servant came back he reported this to his master. The master of the house was furious and said to him, ‘Go out quickly into the streets and alleys of the town, and bring in the poor, the crippled, the blind, and the lame.’

22When the servant informed him that his orders had been carried out and there was still room,

23his master replied, ‘Go out on the highways and along the hedgerows and compel them to come in; I want my house full.

24I tell you, not one of those who were invited shall taste my banquet.’”

25Once when great crowds were accompanying him, he turned to them and said:

26“If anyone comes to me and does not hate his father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters, even his own life, he cannot be a disciple of mine.

27No one who does not carry his cross and come with me can be a disciple of mine.

28Would any of you think of building a tower without first sitting down and calculating the cost, to see whether he could afford to finish it?

29Otherwise, if he has laid its foundation and then is unable to complete it, everyone who sees it will laugh at him.

30‘There goes the man’, they will say, ‘who started to build and could not finish.’

31Or what king will march to battle against another king, without first sitting down to consider whether with ten thousand men he can face an enemy coming to meet him with twenty thousand?

32If he cannot, then, long before the enemy approaches, he sends envoys and asks for terms.

33So also, if you are not prepared to leave all your possessions behind, you cannot be my disciples.

34“Salt is good; but if salt itself becomes tasteless, how will it be seasoned?

35It is useless either on the land or on the dungheap; it can only be thrown away. If you have ears to hear, then hear.”
