John's Questions

1 When R377 Jesus had finished giving F230 instructions to His twelve disciples, He departed from there to R378 teach and preach F231 in their cities.

2 Now R379 when John, R380 while F232 imprisoned, heard of the works of Christ, he sent word by his disciples 3 and said to Him, "Are You the R381 Expected F233 One, or shall we look for someone else?" 4 Jesus answered and said to them, "Go and report to John what you hear and see: 5 the R382 BLIND RECEIVE SIGHT and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the POOR R383 HAVE THE GOSPEL F234 PREACHED TO THEM. 6 "And blessed is he who F235 does R384 not take F236 offense at Me."

Jesus' Tribute to John

7 As these men were going away, Jesus began to speak to the crowds about John, "What did you go out into the R385 wilderness to see? A reed shaken by the wind? 8 "But F237 what did you go out to see? A man dressed in soft clothing? Those who wear soft clothing are in kings' palaces! F238 9 "But F239 what did you go out to see? A R386 prophet? Yes, I tell you, and one who is more than a prophet. 10 "This is the one about whom it is F240 written, `BEHOLD R387 , I SEND MY MESSENGER AHEAD F241 OF YOU, WHO WILL PREPARE YOUR WAY BEFORE YOU.' 11 "Truly I say to you, among those born of women there has not arisen anyone greater than John the Baptist! Yet the one who is least F242 in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he. 12 "From R388 the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers F243 violence, and violent men take F244 it by force. 13 "For all the prophets and the Law prophesied until John. 14 "And if you are willing to accept it, John himself is Elijah R389 who was F245 to come. 15 "He R390 who has ears to hear, let F246 him hear.

16 "But to what shall I compare this generation? It is like children sitting in the market places, who call out to the other children, 17 and say, `We played the flute for you, and you did not dance; we sang a dirge, and you did not mourn.' F247 18 "For John came neither eating R391 nor drinking, R392 and they say, `He R393 has a demon!' 19 "The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, `Behold, a gluttonous man and a drunkard, F248 a R394 friend of tax collectors and sinners!' F249 Yet wisdom is vindicated by her deeds."

The Unrepenting Cities

20 Then He began to denounce the cities in which most of His miracles R395 F250 were done, because they did not repent. 21 "Woe R396 to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! R397 For if the miracles F251 had occurred in Tyre R398 and Sidon R398 which occurred in you, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth R399 F252 and ashes. 22 "Nevertheless I say to you, it R400 will be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon in the R401 day of judgment than for you. 23 "And you, Capernaum, R402 will not be exalted to heaven, will you? You will descend R403 to Hades; R404 for if the miracles F253 had occurred in Sodom R405 which occurred in you, it would have remained to this day. 24 "Nevertheless I say to you that it R406 will be more tolerable for the land of Sodom R407 in the day of judgment, than for you."

Come to Me

25 At R408 that time F254 Jesus said, "I praise You, Father, R409 Lord of heaven and earth, that You R410 have hidden these things from the wise and intelligent and have revealed them to infants. 26 "Yes, Father, R411 for this way was well-pleasing in Your sight. 27 "All R412 things have been handed over to Me by My Father; and no one knows the Son except the Father; nor does anyone know the Father except R413 the Son, and anyone to whom the Son wills to reveal Him.

28 "Come R414 to Me, all who F255 are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. 29 "Take My yoke upon you and learn R415 from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and YOU R416 WILL FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS. 30 "For My R417 yoke is easy F256 and My burden is light."
