1WHEN JESUS had finished His charge to His twelve disciples, He left there to teach and to preach in their [Galilean] cities.

2Now when John in prison heard about the activities of Christ, he sent a message by his disciples

3And asked Him, Are You the One Who was to come, or should we keep on expecting a different one?

4And Jesus replied to them, Go and report to John what you hear and see:

5The blind receive their sight and the lame walk, lepers are cleansed (by healing) and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up and the poor have good news (the Gospel) preached to them.

6And blessed (happy, fortunate, and to be envied) is he who takes no offense at Me {and} finds no cause for stumbling in {or} through Me {and} is not hindered from seeing the Truth.

7Then as these men went their way, Jesus began to speak to the crowds about John: What did you go out in the wilderness (desert) to see? A reed swayed by the wind?

8What did you go out to see then? A man clothed in soft garments? Behold, those who wear soft clothing are in the houses of kings.

9But what did you go out to see? A prophet? Yes, I tell you, and one [out of the common, more eminent, more remarkable, and] superior to a prophet.

10This is the one of whom it is written, Behold, I send My messenger ahead of You, who shall make ready Your way before You.

11Truly I tell you, among those born of women there has not risen anyone greater than John the Baptist; yet he who is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.

12And from the days of John the Baptist until the present time, the kingdom of heaven has endured violent assault, and violent men seize it by force [as a precious prize--a share in the heavenly kingdom is sought with most ardent zeal and intense exertion].

13For all the Prophets and the Law prophesied up until John.

14And if you are willing to receive {and} accept it, John himself is Elijah who was to come [before the kingdom].

15He who has ears to hear, let him be listening {and} let him consider {and} perceive {and} comprehend by hearing.

16But to what shall I liken this generation? It is like little children sitting in the marketplaces who call to their playmates,

17We piped to you [playing wedding], and you did not dance; we wailed dirges [playing funeral], and you did not mourn {and} beat your breasts {and} weep aloud.

18For John came neither eating nor drinking [with others], and they say, He has a demon!

19The Son of Man came eating and drinking [with others], and they say, Behold, a glutton and a wine drinker, a friend of tax collectors {and} [especially wicked] sinners! Yet wisdom is justified {and} vindicated by what she does (her deeds) {and by} {her children.}

20Then He began to censure {and} reproach the cities in which most of His mighty works had been performed, because they did not repent [and their hearts were not changed].

21Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the mighty works done in you had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would long ago have repented in sackcloth and ashes [and their hearts would have been changed].

22I tell you [further], it shall be more endurable for Tyre and Sidon on the day of judgment than for you.

23And you, Capernaum, are you to be lifted up to heaven? You shall be brought down to Hades [the region of the dead]! For if the mighty works done in you had been done in Sodom, it would have continued until today.

24But I tell you, it shall be more endurable for the land of Sodom on the day of judgment than for you.

25At that time Jesus began to say, I thank You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth [and I acknowledge openly {and} joyfully to Your honor], that You have hidden these things from the wise {and} clever and learned, and revealed them to babies [to the childish, untaught, and unskilled].

26Yes, Father, [I praise You that] such was Your gracious will {and} good pleasure.

27All things have been entrusted {and} delivered to Me by My Father; and no one fully knows {and} accurately understands the Son except the Father, and no one fully knows {and} accurately understands the Father except the Son and anyone to whom the Son deliberately wills to make Him known.

28Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy-laden {and} overburdened, and I will cause you to rest. [I will ease and relieve and refresh your souls.]

29Take My yoke upon you and learn of Me, for I am gentle (meek) and humble (lowly) in heart, and you will find rest (relief and ease and refreshment and recreation and blessed quiet) for your souls.

30For My yoke is wholesome (useful, good--not harsh, hard, sharp, or pressing, but comfortable, gracious, and pleasant), and My burden is light {and} easy to be borne.
