2 And a certain centurion’s servant, who was dear to him, was sick and ready to die. 3 So when he heard about Jesus, he sent elders of the Jews to Him, pleading with Him to come and heal his servant. 4 And when they came to Jesus, they begged Him earnestly, saying that the one for whom He should do this was deserving, 5 “for he loves our nation, and has built us a synagogue.”
6 Then Jesus went with them. And when He was already not far from the house, the centurion sent friends to Him, saying to Him, “Lord, do not trouble Yourself, for I am not worthy that You should enter under my roof. 7 Therefore I did not even think myself worthy to come to You. But bsay the word, and my servant will be healed. 8 For I also am a man placed under cauthority, having soldiers under me. And I say to one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; and to another, ‘Come,’ and he comes; and to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.”
9 When Jesus heard these things, He marveled at him, and turned around and said to the crowd that followed Him, “I say to you, I have not found such great faith, not even in Israel!” 10 And those who were sent, returning to the house, found the servant well 1who had been sick.
11 Now it happened, the day after, that He went into a city called Nain; and many of His disciples went with Him, and a large crowd. 12 And when He came near the gate of the city, behold, a dead man was being carried out, the only son of his mother; and she was a widow. And a large crowd from the city was with her. 13 When the Lord saw her, He had dcompassion on her and said to her, e“Do not weep.” 14 Then He came and touched the open coffin, and those who carried him stood still. And He said, “Young man, I say to you, farise.” 15 So he who was dead gsat up and began to speak. And He hpresented him to his mother.
17 And this report about Him went throughout all Judea and all the surrounding region.
18 mThen the disciples of John reported to him concerning all these things. 19 And John, calling two of his disciples to him, sent them to 3Jesus, saying, “Are You nthe Coming One, or 4do we look for another?”
20 When the men had come to Him, they said, “John the Baptist has sent us to You, saying, ‘Are You the Coming One, or do we look for another?’ ” 21 And that very hour He cured many of 5infirmities, afflictions, and evil spirits; and to many blind He gave sight.
22 oJesus answered and said to them, “Go and tell John the things you have seen and heard: pthat the blind qsee, the lame rwalk, the lepers are scleansed, the deaf thear, the dead are raised, uthe poor have the gospel preached to them. 23 And blessed is he who is not 6offended because of Me.”
