1 It happened that while 1Jesus was praying in a certain place, after He had finished, one of His disciples said to Him, “Lord, teach us to pray just as John also taught his disciples.”
2 And He said to them, “aWhen you pray, say:
‘1Father, hallowed be Your name.
Your kingdom come.
For we ourselves also forgive everyone who ais indebted to us.
And lead us not into temptation.’ ”
5 Then He said to them, “1Suppose one of you has a friend, and goes to him at midnight and says to him, ‘Friend, lend me three loaves;
7 and from inside he answers and says, ‘Do not bother me; the door has already been shut and my children 1and I are in bed; I cannot get up and give you anything.’
14 aAnd He was casting out a demon, and it was mute; when the demon had gone out, the mute man spoke; and the crowds were amazed.
19 “And if I by aBeelzebul cast out demons, by whom do your sons cast them out? So they will be your judges.
23 “aHe who is not with Me is against Me; and he who does not gather with Me, scatters.
28 But He said, “On the contrary, blessed are athose who hear the word of God and observe it.”
31 “The aQueen of the South will rise up with the men of this generation at the judgment and condemn them, because she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and behold, something greater than Solomon is here.
32 “The men of Nineveh will stand up with this generation at the judgment and condemn it, because athey repented at the preaching of Jonah; and behold, something greater than Jonah is here.
33 “aNo one, after lighting a lamp, puts it away in a cellar nor under a basket, but on the lampstand, so that those who enter may see the light.
37 Now when He had spoken, a Pharisee * asked Him to have lunch with him; and He went in, and reclined at the table.
40 “aYou foolish ones, did not He who made the outside make the inside also?
42 “aBut woe to you Pharisees! For you bpay tithe of mint and rue and every kind of garden herb, and yet disregard justice and the love of God; but these are the things you should have done without neglecting the others.
43 “Woe to you Pharisees! For you alove the chief seats in the synagogues and the respectful greetings in the market places.
