Luke 9:37–49

37 And it came to pass, that on the next day, nwhen they were come down from nnthe hill, much people met him. 38 And, behold, a man of the company cried out, saying, Master, I beseech thee, olook upon my son: for he is pmine only child. 39 And, lo, a spirit taketh him, and he suddenly ppcrieth out; and it qteareth him that he foameth again, and bruising him hardly departeth from him. 40 And I besought thy disciples to cast him out; and they could not. 41 And Jesus answering said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you, and suffer you? Bring thy son hither. 42 And as he was yet a coming, the devil threw him down, and tare him. And Jesus rebuked the unclean spirit, and healed the child, and delivered him again to his father.

43 And they were all amazed at the mighty power of God. rBut while they wondered every one at all things which Jesus did, he said unto his disciples, 44 Let these sayings ssink down into your ears: for the Son of man shall be delivered into the hands of men. 45 tBut they understood not this saying, and it was hid from them, that they perceived it not: and they feared to ask him of that saying.

46 uThen there arose wa reasoning among them, which of them should be greatest. 47 And Jesus, xperceiving the thought of their heart, took a child, and set him by him, 48 And said unto them, Whosoever shall receive this child in my name receiveth me: and ywhosoever shall receive me receiveth him that sent me: zfor he that is least among you all, the same shall be great.

49 aAnd John answered and said, bMaster, we saw one casting out devils in thy name; and we forbad him, because he followeth not with us.
