Luke 13:1 – NOW at that time came some and told him of the Galiloyee, they whose blood Pilatos had mingled with their sacrifices.
Luke 13:2 – Jeshu answered and said to them,
Think you that these Galiloyee were sinners more than all the Galiloyee, that thus it was (with) them ?
Luke 13:3 – No;
but I tell you that all of you also, if you repent not, will thus perish.
Luke 13:4 – Or those eighteen on whom fell the tower in Silucha, and killed them;
think you that they were sinners above all men who dwell in Urishlem ?
Luke 13:5 – No;
but I tell you that, if you repent not, all of you likewise shall perish.
Luke 13:6 – And he spake this parable:
A man had a fig-tree which was planted in his vinery:
and he came and sought fruits on it, but did not find.
Luke 13:7 – And he said to the husbandman,
Behold, three years come I seeking fruits from this fig-tree, but I have not found:
cut it down;
why maketh it the ground useless ?
Luke 13:8 – The husbandman saith to him,
My lord, suffer it also this year, until I tend it and manure it:
Luke 13:9 – and if it produce fruits, (well): but if not, then afterwards I will cut it down.
Luke 13:10 – AS Jeshu was teaching on a shabath in one of the synagogues,
Luke 13:11 – a woman was there who had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years;
and she was bowed down, and could not be straight at all.
Luke 13:12 – But Jeshu saw her, and called her, and said to her,
Woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity.
Luke 13:13 – And he laid his hand upon her;
and at once she was made straight, and glorified Aloha.
Luke 13:14 – But the chief of the synagogue answered, being angry that Jeshu had healed on the shabath, and said to the congregation,
Six days there are in which it is lawful to work:
in them come and be healed, and not on the day of shabath.
Luke 13:15 – But Jeshu answered and said to him,
Hypocrite, doth not any one of you on the shabath loose his ox or his ass from the manger, and going giveth to drink ?
Luke 13:16 – But this daughter of Abraham, whom, behold, the Accuser [Akelkartsa.] hath bound eighteen years, is it not lawful to loose from this binding on the day of shabath ?
Luke 13:17 – And as he said these things, ashamed were all they who had risen up against him;
and all the people rejoiced in all these wonders that were done by his hand.
Luke 13:18 – Jeshu said,
What doth the kingdom of Aloha resemble, and to what shall I compare it ?
Luke 13:19 – It resembles a grain of mustard, [Chardala, Sinapis orientalis.]
which a man took (and) cast into his garden:
and it grew, and became a great tree;
and the fowl of the heaven built in its branches.
Luke 13:20 – Jeshu said again,
To what shall I compare the kingdom of Aloha ?

(and) hid in three satas of meal, until all had leavened.

Strive to enter in at the strait gate:
for I say to you that many will seek to enter in, but shall not be able.
Luke 13:25 – From the hour that the Lord of the house shall have risen up and have shut the door, you may stand without, knocking at the door, and may begin to say,
Our Lord, our Lord, open to us !
But he will answer and say, I tell you that I know not whence you are.
Luke 13:26 – And you shall begin to say,
Before thee we have eaten and drunk, and in our streets thou hast taught.
Luke 13:27 – And he shall say to you,
I know you not whence you are:
depart from me, workers of falsity.
Luke 13:28 – There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when you shall see Abraham and Ishok and Jakub and all the prophets in the kingdom of Aloha, but you be cast forth without.

Luke 13:32 – Jeshu saith to them,
Go, tell that fox, Behold, I cast out devils and perform cures to-day and to-morrow, and the third day I am perfected.
Luke 13:33 – Nevertheless it behoveth me to-day and to-morrow to work and the (day) after I shall go;
because it cannot be that a prophet perish out of Urishlem.
Luke 13:34 – Urishlem, Urishlem !
killing the prophets, and stoning them that are sent to her, what times would I have gathered thy sons as the hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and you willed not !

Luke 14:4 – But they were silent.
And he took him, and healed him, and dismissed him.
Luke 14:5 – And he said to them,
Who from you, whose son or his ox hath fallen into a pit on the day of shabath, doth not at once bring him forth ?
Luke 14:6 – And they could not give him the answer concerning this.
Luke 14:7 – And he spoke a parable to them who had been invited there, forasmuch as he had observed them, that they chose the chief places of reclining:
Luke 14:8 – When thou art invited by one into the house of festivity, go not to recline on the principal seat, lest there be invited thither one more honourable than thou;
Luke 14:9 – and he come who thyself and him had called, and say to thee,
Give place to this;
and thou be ashamed as thou arisest to take another place.
Luke 14:10 – But when thou art invited, go, recline thee in the last (seat), that when he who called thee cometh, he may say to thee,
My friend, ascend and recline above, and thou shalt have honour before all of them who recline with thee.
Luke 14:11 – For every one who exalteth himself shall be humbled;
and every one who humbleth himself shall be exalted.
Luke 14:12 – And he said to him who had called him,
When thou makest a dinner or a supper, thou shouldest not call thy friends, nor thy brethren, nor thy kinsmen, nor thy rich neighbours, lest they also call thee, and thou have this recompence.
Luke 14:13 – But when thou makest a feast, [Reception.]
call the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind,
Luke 14:14 – and thou shalt be blessed, because they cannot recompense thee;
for thy recompence shall be in the resurrection of the just.
Luke 14:15 – But when one of those who reclined heard these (words), he said to him,
Blessed he who shall eat bread in the kingdom of Aloha!
Luke 14:16 – Jeshu saith to him,
A certain man made a great supper, and called many.
Luke 14:17 – And he sent his servant, at the time of the supper, to say to them who were called,
Behold, every thing is prepared for you, come.
Luke 14:18 – And every one of them began to excuse himself.
The first said to him, I have bought an estate, and am constrained to go forth to see it:
I beseech thee, permit me to be excused.
Luke 14:19 – Another said,
Five yoke of oxen have I bought, and I go to prove them:
I beseech thee, permit me to be excused.
Luke 14:20 – Another said,
A wife have I taken, and therefore I cannot come.
Luke 14:21 – And the servant came and told his lord these things.
Then the lord of the house was angry, and said to his servant,
Go into the streets and outskirts of the city, and bring hither the poor, and the afflicted, and the lame, and the sightless.
Luke 14:22 – And the servant said,
My lord, it is done as thou hast commanded, and yet there is place.
Luke 14:23 – And the lord said to his servant,
Go forth into the ways, and among the hedges, and constrain them to come in, that my house may be filled:
Luke 14:24 – for I tell you, that not one of those men who were called shall taste of my supper.
Luke 14:25 – AND while great multitudes were going with him, he turned and said to them,
Luke 14:26 – Whoever cometh with me, and doth not hate his father and his mother, and his brethren and his sisters, and his wife and his children, and himself also, a disciple he cannot be of mine.
Luke 14:27 – And whoever doth not take up his cross and come after me, a disciple he cannot be of mine.
Luke 14:28 – For who of you that willeth to build a tower, and doth not first sit down and reckon the expense of it, whether he have (wherewith) to finish it ?
Luke 14:29 – lest, when he shall have laid the foundation, and shall not be able to finish, all who see shall deride him,
Luke 14:30 – saying,
This man began to build, and was not able to finish.
Luke 14:31 – Or, what king, going to war with a king his neighbour, doth not first consider, whether he be able with ten thousand to meet him who cometh against him with twenty thousand?
Luke 14:32 – and if not, while he is distant from him, he may send legates, and pray for peace.

Luke 15:2 – And the Sophree and Pharishee murmured, and said,
This (man) receiveth sinners, and eateth with them.

Luke 15:4 – What man of you, who hath a hundred sheep, if he shall lose one from them, does not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and, going, seeketh that which was lost until he shall have found it ?
Luke 15:5 – And when he hath found it, he rejoiceth and carrieth it upon his shoulders.
Luke 15:6 – And, coming to his house, he calleth his friends and his neighbours, and saith to them,
Rejoice with me;
for I have found the sheep which was lost.
Luke 15:7 – I say to you, that thus shall there be joy in heaven over one sinner who repenteth, more than over the ninety and nine just ones who have no need of repentance.
Luke 15:8 – Or, who is the woman that hath ten zuzis, and shall lose one of them, (and) does not light a lamp and sweep the house, and seek it diligently, until she shall have found it ?
Luke 15:9 – And when she hath found it, she calleth her friends and her neighbours, and saith to them,
Rejoice with me;
for I have found my zuzi that I had lost.
Luke 15:10 – I say to you, that so shall there be joy before the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth.
Luke 15:11 – AND Jeshu said to them again,
A certain man had two sons;
Luke 15:12 – and his minor [Zuro, less.] son said to him,
My father, give to me my division of the goods of thy house.
And he divided to them his substance.
Luke 15:13 – And after a few days the minor son gathered together his all whatsoever, and went into a distant country, and there dispersed his substance in living profusely.
Luke 15:14 – And when every thing he had was finished, there was a great famine in that country;
and he began to want.
Luke 15:15 – And he went and joined himself to one of the sons of the city of that place;
and he sent him into the field to tend the swine.
Luke 15:16 – And he had a desire to fill his belly with those karubs [Kurubee, the pods of the karub-tree, ceratonia siliqua.]
which the swine did eat;
and no man gave to him.
Luke 15:17 – And when he came to himself, he said,
How many hirelings are there now in my father’s house, who have abundance of bread, and I here with hunger am perishing !
Luke 15:18 – I will arise, go to my father, and say to him,
My father, I have sinned against heaven and before thee,
Luke 15:19 – and am no more worthy thy son to be called:
make me as one of thy hirelings.
Luke 15:20 – And he arose, (and) went to his father.
And while he was (yet) afar, his father saw him, and had compassion upon him, and ran, fell upon his neck, and kissed him.
Luke 15:21 – And his son said to him,
My father, I have sinned against heaven and before thee, and am not worthy thy son to be called.
Luke 15:22 – But his father said to his servants,
Bring forth the first [Or, principal.] robe to clothe him, and put a ring upon his hand, and let him be, shod with sandals,
Luke 15:23 – and bring, kill the calf that is fat, and let us eat and be glad;
Luke 15:24 – for this my son was dead, and he is alive;
he was lost, and is found.
And they began to rejoice.
Luke 15:25 – But he, the elder son, was in the field;
and as he came and drew near to the house, he heard the voice of music;
Luke 15:26 – and he called one of the youths, and asked him what this was.
Luke 15:27 – He said to him,
Thy brother hath come, and thy father hath killed the calf that was fat, because he hath received him well.
Luke 15:28 – And he was angry, and would not go in.
And his father came forth and besought him.
Luke 15:29 – But he said to his father,
Behold, how many years have I wrought thee service, and never have I transgressed thy commandment:
yet never hast thou given me a kid, that I might feast with my friends.
Luke 15:30 – But this thy son, when he hath wasted thy substance with harlots, and hath come, thou hast killed for him the fatted calf.
Luke 15:31 – His father saith to him,
My son, thou in all time art with me, and every thing that I have is thine.
Luke 15:32 – But to rejoice it behoves us, and to be glad, because this thy brother was dead, and is alive;
and was lost, and is found.
