Luke 10:25-37
    25And then a certain lawyer arose to try (test, tempt) Him, saying, Teacher, what am I to do to inherit everlasting life [that is, to partake of eternal salvation in the Messiah's kingdom]?
    26Jesus said to him, What is written in the Law? How do you read it?
    27And he replied, You must love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself.
    28And Jesus said to him, You have answered correctly; do this, and you will live [enjoy active, blessed, endless life in the kingdom of God].
    29And he, determined to acquit himself of reproach, said to Jesus, And who is my neighbor?
    30Jesus, taking him up, replied, A certain man was going from Jerusalem down to Jericho, and he fell among robbers, who stripped him of his clothes and belongings and beat him and went their way, [unconcernedly] leaving him half dead, as it happened.
    31Now by coincidence a certain priest was going down along that road, and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side.
    32A Levite likewise came down to the place and saw him, and passed by on the other side [of the road].
    33But a certain Samaritan, as he traveled along, came down to where he was; and when he saw him, he was moved with pity [compassion] and sympathy [for him],
    34And went to him and dressed his wounds, pouring on [them] oil and wine. Then he set him on his own beast and brought him to an inn and took care of him.
    35And the next day he took out two denarii [two day's wages] and gave [them] to the innkeeper, saying, Take care of him; and whatever more you spend, I [myself] will repay you when I return.
    36Which of these three do you think proved himself a neighbor to him who fell among the robbers?
    37He answered, The one who showed pity [compassion] and mercy to him. And Jesus said to him, Go and do likewise.
 
Luke 10:38-42
    38Now while they were on their way, it occurred that Jesus entered a certain village, and a woman named Martha received and welcomed Him into her house.
    39And she had a sister named Mary, who seated herself at the Lord's feet and was listening to His teaching.
    40But Martha [overly occupied and too busy] was distracted with much serving; and she came up to Him and said, Lord, is it nothing to You that my sister has left me to serve alone? Tell her then to help me [to lend a hand and do her part along with me]!
    41But the Lord replied to her by saying, Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things;
    42There is need of only one or but a few things. Mary has chosen the good portion [that which is to her advantage], which shall not be taken away from her.
 
Luke 11:1-8
    1Then He was praying in a certain place; and when He stopped, one of His disciples said to Him, Lord, teach us to pray, [just] as John taught his disciples.
    2And He said to them, When you pray, say: Our Father Who is in heaven, hallowed be Your Name, Your kingdom come. Your will be done [held holy and revered] on earth as it is in heaven.
    3Give us daily our bread [food for the morrow].
    4And forgive us our sins, for we ourselves also forgive everyone who is indebted to us [who has offended us or done us wrong]. And bring us not into temptation but rescue us from evil.
    5And He said to them, Which of you who has a friend will go to him at midnight and will say to him, Friend, lend me three loaves [of bread],
    6For a friend of mine who is on a journey has just come, and I have nothing to put before him;
    7And he from within will answer, Do not disturb me; the door is now closed, and my children are with me in bed; I cannot get up and supply you [with anything]?
    8I tell you, although he will not get up and supply him anything because he is his friend, yet because of his shameless persistence and insistence he will get up and give him as much as he needs.
 
Luke 11:9-13
    9So I say to you, Ask and keep on asking and it shall be given you; seek and keep on seeking and you shall find; knock and keep on knocking and the door shall be opened to you.
    10For everyone who asks and keeps on asking receives; and he who seeks and keeps on seeking finds; and to him who knocks and keeps on knocking, the door shall be opened.
    11What father among you, if his son asks for a loaf of bread, will give him a stone; or if he asks for a fish, will instead of a fish give him a serpent?
    12Or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion?
    13If you then, evil as you are, know how to give good gifts [gifts that are to their advantage] to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask and continue to ask Him!
 
Luke 11:28
    28But He said, Blessed (happy and to be envied) rather are those who hear the Word of God and obey and practice it!
 
Luke 11:33-36
    33No one after lighting a lamp puts it in a cellar or crypt or under a bushel measure, but on a lampstand, that those who are coming in may see the light.
    34Your eye is the lamp of your body; when your eye (your conscience) is sound and fulfilling its office, your whole body is full of light; but when it is not sound and is not fulfilling its office, your body is full of darkness.
    35Be careful, therefore, that the light that is in you is not darkness.
    36If then your entire body is illuminated, having no part dark, it will be wholly bright [with light], as when a lamp with its bright rays gives you light.
 
Luke 12:2-3
    2Nothing is [so closely] covered up that it will not be revealed, or hidden that it will not be known.
    3Whatever you have spoken in the darkness shall be heard and listened to in the light, and what you have whispered in [people's] ears and behind closed doors will be proclaimed upon the housetops.
 
Luke 12:6-7
    6Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? And [yet] not one of them is forgotten or uncared for in the presence of God.
    7But [even] the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Do not be struck with fear or seized with alarm; you are of greater worth than many [flocks] of sparrows.
 
Luke 12:11-12
    11And when they bring you before the synagogues and the magistrates and the authorities, do not be anxious [beforehand] how you shall reply in defense or what you are to say.
    12For the Holy Spirit will teach you in that very hour and moment what [you] ought to say.
 
Luke 12:13-21
    13Someone from the crowd said to Him, Master, order my brother to divide the inheritance and share it with me.
    14But He told him, Man, who has appointed Me a judge or umpire and divider over you?
    15And He said to them, Guard yourselves and keep free from all covetousness (the immoderate desire for wealth, the greedy longing to have more); for a man's life does not consist in and is not derived from possessing overflowing abundance or that which is over and above his needs.
    16Then He told them a parable, saying, The land of a rich man was fertile and yielded plentifully.
    17And he considered and debated within himself, What shall I do? I have no place [in which] to gather together my harvest.
    18And he said, I will do this: I will pull down my storehouses and build larger ones, and there I will store all my grain or produce and my goods.
    19And I will say to my soul, Soul, you have many good things laid up, [enough] for many years. Take your ease; eat, drink, and enjoy yourself merrily.
    20But God said to him, You fool! This very night they [the messengers of God] will demand your soul of you; and all the things that you have prepared, whose will they be?
    21So it is with the one who continues to lay up and hoard possessions for himself and is not rich [in his relation] to God [this is how he fares].
 
Luke 12:22-31
    22And [Jesus] said to His disciples, Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious and troubled [with cares] about your life, as to what you will [have to] eat; or about your body, as to what you will [have to] wear.
    23For life is more than food, and the body [more] than clothes.
    24Observe and consider the ravens; for they neither sow nor reap, they have neither storehouse nor barn; and [yet] God feeds them. Of how much more worth are you than the birds!
    25And which of you by being overly anxious and troubled with cares can add a cubit to his stature or a moment [unit] of time to his age [the length of his life]?
    26If then you are not able to do such a little thing as that, why are you anxious and troubled with cares about the rest?
    27Consider the lilies, how they grow. They neither [wearily] toil nor spin nor weave; yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory (his splendor and magnificence) was not arrayed like one of these. [I Kings 10:4-7.]
    28But if God so clothes the grass in the field, which is alive today, and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, how much more will He clothe you, O you [people] of little faith?
    29And you, do not seek [by meditating and reasoning to inquire into] what you are to eat and what you are to drink; nor be of anxious (troubled) mind [unsettled, excited, worried, and in suspense];
    30For all the pagan world is [greedily] seeking these things, and your Father knows that you need them.
    31Only aim at and strive for and seek His kingdom, and all these things shall be supplied to you also.
 
Luke 12:32
    32Do not be seized with alarm and struck with fear, little flock, for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom!
 
Luke 12:33-34
    33Sell what you possess and give donations to the poor; provide yourselves with purses and handbags that do not grow old, an unfailing and inexhaustible treasure in the heavens, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys.
    34For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
 
Luke 12:35-40
    35Keep your loins girded and your lamps burning,
    36And be like men who are waiting for their master to return home from the marriage feast, so that when he returns from the wedding and comes and knocks, they may open to him immediately.
    37Blessed (happy, fortunate, and to be envied) are those servants whom the master finds awake and alert and watching when he comes. Truly I say to you, he will gird himself and have them recline at table and will come and serve them!
    38If he comes in the second watch (before midnight) or the third watch (after midnight), and finds them so, blessed (happy, fortunate, and to be envied) are those servants!
    39But of this be assured: if the householder had known at what time the burglar was coming, he would have been awake and alert and watching and would not have permitted his house to be dug through and broken into.
    40You also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour and a moment when you do not anticipate it.
 
Luke 12:41-48
    41Peter said, Lord, are You telling this parable for us, or for all alike?
    42And the Lord said, Who then is that faithful steward, the wise man whom his master will set over those in his household service to supply them their allowance of food at the appointed time?
    43Blessed (happy and to be envied) is that servant whom his master finds so doing when he arrives.
    44Truly I tell you, he will set him in charge over all his possessions.
    45But if that servant says in his heart, My master is late in coming, and begins to strike the menservants and the maids and to eat and drink and get drunk,
    46The master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour of which he does not know, and will punish him and cut him off and assign his lot with the unfaithful.
    47And that servant who knew his master's will but did not get ready or act as he would wish him to act shall be beaten with many [lashes].
    48But he who did not know and did things worthy of a beating shall be beaten with few [lashes]. For everyone to whom much is given, of him shall much be required; and of him to whom men entrust much, they will require and demand all the more.
 
Luke 13:5
    5I tell you, No; but unless you repent ( change your mind for the better and heartily amend your ways, with abhorrence of your past sins), you will all likewise perish and be lost eternally.
 
Luke 13:18-21
    18This led Him to say, What is the kingdom of God like? And to what shall I compare it?
    19It is like a grain of mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his own garden; and it grew and became a tree, and the wild birds found shelter and roosted and nested in its branches.
    20And again He said, To what shall I liken the kingdom of God?
    21It is like leaven which a woman took and hid in three measures of wheat flour or meal until it was all leavened (fermented).
 
Luke 14:7-14
    7Now He told a parable to those who were invited, [when] He noticed how they were selecting the places of honor, saying to them,
    8When you are invited by anyone to a marriage feast, do not recline on the chief seat [in the place of honor], lest a more distinguished person than you has been invited by him,
    9And he who invited both of you will come to you and say, Let this man have the place [you have taken]. Then, with humiliation and a guilty sense of impropriety, you will begin to take the lowest place.
    10But when you are invited, go and recline in the lowest place, so that when your host comes in, he may say to you, Friend, go up higher! Then you will be honored in the presence of all who sit [at table] with you.
    11For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled (ranked below others who are honored or rewarded), and he who humbles himself (keeps a modest opinion of himself and behaves accordingly) will be exalted (elevated in rank).
    12Jesus also said to the man who had invited Him, When you give a dinner or a supper, do not invite your friends or your brothers or your relatives or your wealthy neighbors, lest perhaps they also invite you in return, and so you are paid back.
    13But when you give a banquet or a reception, invite the poor, the disabled, the lame, and the blind.
    14Then you will be blessed (happy, fortunate, and to be envied), because they have no way of repaying you, and you will be recompensed at the resurrection of the just (upright).
 
Luke 15:1-7
    1Now the tax collectors and [notorious and especially wicked] sinners were all coming near to [Jesus] to listen to Him.
    2And the Pharisees and the scribes kept muttering and indignantly complaining, saying, This man accepts and receives and welcomes [preeminently wicked] sinners and eats with them.
    3So He told them this parable:
    4What man of you, if he has a hundred sheep and should lose one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness (desert) and go after the one that is lost until he finds it?
    5And when he has found it, he lays it on his [own] shoulders, rejoicing.
    6And when he gets home, he summons together [his] friends and [his] neighbors, saying to them, Rejoice with me, because I have found my sheep which was lost.
    7Thus, I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven over one [especially] wicked person who repents (changes his mind, abhorring his errors and misdeeds, and determines to enter upon a better course of life) than over ninety-nine righteous persons who have no need of repentance.
 
Luke 15:8-10
    8Or what woman, having ten [silver] drachmas [each one equal to a day's wages], if she loses one coin, does not light a lamp and sweep the house and look carefully and diligently until she finds it?
    9And when she has found it, she summons her [women] friends and neighbors, saying, Rejoice with me, for I have found the silver coin which I had lost.
    10Even so, I tell you, there is joy among and in the presence of the angels of God over one [especially] wicked person who repents (changes his mind for the better, heartily amending his ways, with abhorrence of his past sins).
 
Luke 15:11-32
    11And He said, There was a certain man who had two sons;
    12And the younger of them said to his father, Father, give me the part of the property that falls [to me]. And he divided the estate between them.
    13And not many days after that, the younger son gathered up all that he had and journeyed into a distant country, and there he wasted his fortune in reckless and loose [from restraint] living.
    14And when he had spent all he had, a mighty famine came upon that country, and he began to fall behind and be in want.
    15So he went and forced (glued) himself upon one of the citizens of that country, who sent him into his fields to feed hogs.
    16And he would gladly have fed on and filled his belly with the carob pods that the hogs were eating, but [they could not satisfy his hunger and] nobody gave him anything [better].
    17Then when he came to himself, he said, How many hired servants of my father have enough food, and [even food] to spare, but I am perishing (dying) here of hunger!
    18I will get up and go to my father, and I will say to him, Father, I have sinned against heaven and in your sight.
    19I am no longer worthy to be called your son; [just] make me like one of your hired servants.
    20So he got up and came to his [own] father. But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was moved with pity [compassion] and tenderness [for him]; and he ran and embraced him and kissed him [fervently].
    21And the son said to him, Father, I have sinned against heaven and in your sight; I am no longer worthy to be called your son [I no longer deserve to be recognized as a son of yours]!
    22But the father said to his bond servants, Bring quickly the best robe (the festive robe of honor) and put it on him; and give him a ring for his hand and sandals for his feet.
    23And bring out that [wheat-]fattened calf and kill it; and let us revel and feast and be happy and make merry,
    24Because this my son was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found! And they began to revel and feast and make merry.
    25But his older son was in the field; and as he returned and came near the house, he heard music and dancing.
    26And having called one of the servant [boys] to him, he began to ask what this meant.
    27And he said to him, Your brother has come, and your father has killed that [wheat-]fattened calf, because he has received him back safe and well.
    28But [the elder brother] was angry [with deep-seated wrath] and resolved not to go in. Then his father came out and began to plead with him,
    29But he answered his father, Look! These many years I have served you, and I have never disobeyed your command. Yet you never gave me [so much as] a [little] kid, that I might revel and feast and be happy and make merry with my friends;
    30But when this son of yours arrived, who has devoured your estate with immoral women, you have killed for him that [wheat-] fattened calf!
    31And the father said to him, Son, you are always with me, and all that is mine is yours.
    32But it was fitting to make merry, to revel and feast and rejoice, for this brother of yours was dead and is alive again! He was lost and is found!
 
Luke 16:10
    10He who is faithful in a very little [thing] is faithful also in much, and he who is dishonest and unjust in a very little [thing] is dishonest and unjust also in much.
 
Luke 16:13
    13No servant is able to serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will stand by and be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon (riches, or anything in which you trust and on which you rely).
 
Luke 17:3-4
    3Pay attention and always be on your guard [looking out for one another]. If your brother sins (misses the mark), solemnly tell him so and reprove him, and if he repents (feels sorry for having sinned), forgive him.
    4And even if he sins against you seven times in a day, and turns to you seven times and says, I repent [I am sorry], you must forgive him (give up resentment and consider the offense as recalled and annulled).
 
Luke 17:5-6
    5The apostles said to the Lord, Increase our faith (that trust and confidence that spring from our belief in God).
    6And the Lord answered, If you had faith (trust and confidence in God) even [so small] like a grain of mustard seed, you could say to this mulberry tree, Be pulled up by the roots, and be planted in the sea, and it would obey you.
 
Luke 17:11-19
    11As He went on His way to Jerusalem, it occurred that [Jesus] was passing [along the border] between Samaria and Galilee.
    12And as He was going into one village, He was met by ten lepers, who stood at a distance.
    13And they raised up their voices and called, Jesus, Master, take pity [compassion] and have mercy on us!
    14And when He saw them, He said to them, Go [at once] and show yourselves to the priests. And as they went, they were cured and made clean.
    15Then one of them, upon seeing that he was cured, turned back, recognizing and thanking and praising God with a loud voice;
    16And he fell prostrate at Jesus' feet, thanking Him [over and over]. And he was a Samaritan.
    17Then Jesus asked, Were not [all] ten cleansed? Where are the nine?
    18Was there no one found to return and to recognize and give thanks and praise to God except this alien?
    19And He said to him, Get up and go on your way. Your faith (your trust and confidence that spring from your belief in God) has restored you to health.
 
Luke 17:20-21
    20Asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, He replied to them by saying, The kingdom of God does not come with signs to be observed or with visible display,
    21Nor will people say, Look! Here [it is]! or, See, [it is] there! For behold, the kingdom of God is within you [in your hearts] and among you [surrounding you].
 
Luke 18:9-14
    9He also told this parable to some people who trusted in themselves and were confident that they were righteous [that they were upright and in right standing with God] and scorned and made nothing of all the rest of men:
    10Two men went up into the temple [enclosure] to pray, the one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector.
    11The Pharisee took his stand ostentatiously and began to pray thus before and with himself: God, I thank You that I am not like the rest of men--extortioners (robbers), swindlers [unrighteous in heart and life], adulterers--or even like this tax collector here.
    12I fast twice a week; I give tithes of all that I gain.
    13But the tax collector, [merely] standing at a distance, would not even lift up his eyes to heaven, but kept striking his breast, saying, O God, be favorable (be gracious, be merciful) to me, the especially wicked sinner that I am!
    14I tell you, this man went down to his home justified (forgiven and made upright and in right standing with God), rather than the other man; for everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but he who humbles himself will be exalted.
 
Luke 18:15-17
    15Now they were also bringing [even] babies to Him that He might touch them, and when the disciples noticed it, they reproved them.
    16But Jesus called them [the parents] to Him, saying, Allow the little children to come to Me, and do not hinder them, for to such [as these] belongs the kingdom of God.
    17Truly I say to you, whoever does not accept and receive and welcome the kingdom of God like a little child [does] shall not in any way enter it [at all].
 
Luke 18:18-27
    18And a certain ruler asked Him, Good Teacher [You who are essentially and perfectly morally good], what shall I do to inherit eternal life [to partake of eternal salvation in the Messiah's kingdom]?
    19Jesus said to him, Why do you call Me [essentially and perfectly morally] good? No one is [essentially and perfectly morally] good--except God only.
    20You know the commandments: Do not commit adultery, do not kill, do not steal, do not witness falsely, honor your father and your mother.
    21And he replied, All these I have kept from my youth.
    22And when Jesus heard it, He said to him, One thing you still lack. Sell everything that you have and divide [the money] among the poor, and you will have [rich] treasure in heaven; and come back [and] follow Me [become My disciple, join My party, and accompany Me].
    23But when he heard this, he became distressed and very sorrowful, for he was rich--exceedingly so.
    24Jesus, observing him, said, How difficult it is for those who have wealth to enter the kingdom of God!
    25For it is easier for a camel to enter through a needle's eye than [for] a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.
    26And those who heard it said, Then who can be saved?
    27But He said, What is impossible with men is possible with God.
 
Luke 18:35-43
    35As He came near to Jericho, it occurred that a blind man was sitting by the roadside begging.
    36And hearing a crowd going by, he asked what it meant.
    37They told him, Jesus of Nazareth is passing by.
    38And he shouted, saying, Jesus, Son of David, take pity [compassion] and have mercy on me!
    39But those who were in front reproved him, telling him to keep quiet; yet he screamed and shrieked so much the more, Son of David, take pity [compassion] and have mercy on me!
    40Then Jesus stood still and ordered that he be led to Him; and when he came near, Jesus asked him,
    41What do you want Me to do for you? He said, Lord, let me receive my sight!
    42And Jesus said to him, Receive your sight! Your faith (your trust and confidence that spring from your faith in God) has healed you.
    43And instantly he received his sight and began to follow Jesus, recognizing, praising, and honoring God; and all the people, when they saw it, praised God.
 
Luke 19:10
    10For the Son of Man [Jesus] came to seek and to save that which was lost.
 
Luke 19:28-40
    28And after saying these things, Jesus went on ahead of them, going up to Jerusalem.
    29When He came near Bethphage and Bethany at the mount called [the Mount of] Olives, He sent two of His disciples,
    30Telling [them], Go into the village yonder; there, as you go in, you will find a donkey's colt tied, on which no man has ever yet sat. Loose it and bring [it here].
    31If anybody asks you, Why are you untying [it]? you shall say this: Because the Lord has need of it.
    32So those who were sent went away and found it [just] as He had told them.
    33And as they were loosening the colt, its owners said to them, Why are you untying the colt?
    34And they said, The Lord has need of it.
    35And they brought it to Jesus; then they threw their garments over the colt and set Jesus upon it.
    36And as He rode along, the people kept spreading their garments on the road. [II Kings 9:13.]
    37As He was approaching [the city], at the descent of the Mount of Olives, the whole crowd of the disciples began to rejoice and to praise God [extolling Him exultantly and] loudly for all the mighty miracles and works of power that they had witnessed,
    38Crying, Blessed (celebrated with praises) is the King Who comes in the Name of the Lord! Peace in heaven [freedom there from all the distresses that are experienced as the result of sin] and glory (majesty and splendor) in the highest [heaven]!
    39And some of the Pharisees from the throng said to Jesus, Teacher, reprove Your disciples!
    40He replied, I tell you that if these keep silent, the very stones will cry out.
 
Luke 20:25
    25He said to them, Then render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's.
 
Luke 21:1-4
    1Looking up, [Jesus] saw the rich people putting their gifts into the treasury.
    2And He saw also a poor widow putting in two mites (copper coins).
    3And He said, Truly I say to you, this poor widow has put in more than all of them;
    4For they all gave out of their abundance (their surplus); but she has contributed out of her lack and her want, putting in all that she had on which to live.
 
Luke 21:8-15
    8And He said, Be on your guard and be careful that you are not led astray; for many will come in My Name [appropriating to themselves the Name Messiah which belongs to Me], saying, I am he! and, The time is at hand! Do not go out after them.
    9And when you hear of wars and insurrections (disturbances, disorder, and confusion), do not become alarmed and panic-stricken and terrified; for all this must take place first, but the end will not [come] immediately.
    10Then He told them, Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. [2 Chronicles 15:6; Isaiah 19:2.]
    11There will be mighty and violent earthquakes, and in various places famines and pestilences (plagues: malignant and contagious or infectious epidemic diseases which are deadly and devastating); and there will be sights of terror and great signs from heaven.
    12But previous to all this, they will lay their hands on you and persecute you, turning you over to the synagogues and prisons, and you will be led away before kings and governors for My Name's sake.
    13This will be a time (an opportunity) for you to bear testimony.
    14Resolve and settle it in your minds not to meditate and prepare beforehand how you are to make your defense and how you will answer.
    15For I [Myself] will give you a mouth and such utterance and wisdom that all of your foes combined will be unable to stand against or refute.

    19By your steadfastness and patient endurance you shall win the true life of your souls.
 
Luke 21:25-28
    25And there will be signs in the sun and moon and stars; and upon the earth [there will be] distress (trouble and anguish) of nations in bewilderment and perplexity [without resources, left wanting, embarrassed, in doubt, not knowing which way to turn] at the roaring (the echo) of the tossing of the sea,
    26Men swooning away or expiring with fear and dread and apprehension and expectation of the things that are coming on the world; for the [very] powers of the heavens will be shaken and caused to totter.
    27And then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with great (transcendent and overwhelming) power and [all His kingly] glory (majesty and splendor).
    28Now when these things begin to occur, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption (deliverance) is drawing near.
 
Luke 21:29-31
    29And He told them a parable: Look at the fig tree and all the trees;
    30When they put forth their buds and come out in leaf, you see for yourselves and perceive and know that summer is already near.
    31Even so, when you see these things taking place, understand and know that the kingdom of God is at hand.

    41And He withdrew from them about a stone's throw and knelt down and prayed,
    42Saying,Father, if You are willing, remove this cup from Me; yet not My will, but [always] Yours be done.
    43And there appeared to Him an angel from heaven, strengthening Him in spirit.
    44And being in an agony [of mind], He prayed [all the] more earnestly and intently, and His sweat became like great clots of blood dropping down upon the ground.
