Luke 9

9:1 Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them
 power and authority over all demons, and to cure diseases.
9:2 And he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal
 the sick.
9:3 And he said to them, Take nothing for [your] journey,
 neither staffs, nor bag, neither bread, neither money; neither
 have two coats apiece.
9:4 And into whatever house ye enter, there abide, and thence
9:5 And whoever will not receive you, when ye go out of that
 city, shake off the very dust from your feet for a testimony
 against them.
9:6 And they departed, and went through the towns, preaching the
 gospel, and healing every where.
9:7 Now Herod the tetrarch heard of all that was done by him:
 and he was perplexed, because that it was said by some, that
 John had risen from the dead;
9:8 And by some, that Elijah had appeared; and by others, that
 one of the ancient prophets had risen again.
9:9 And Herod said, John have I beheaded; but who is this of
 whom I hear such things? And he desired to see him.
9:10 And the apostles, when they had returned, told him all that
 they had done. And he took them, and went aside privately into
 a desert place, belonging to the city called Bethsaida.
9:11 And the people, when they knew [it], followed him: and he
 received them, and spoke to them of the kingdom of God, and
 healed them that had need of healing.
9:12 And when the day began to decline, then came the twelve,
 and said to him, Send the multitude away, that they may go into
 the towns and country around, and lodge, and get victuals: for
 we are here in a desert place.
9:13 But he said to them, Give ye them to eat. And they said, We
 have no more than five loaves and two fishes; except we should
 go and buy provisions for all this people.
9:14 For they were about five thousand men. And he said to his
 disciples, Make them sit down by fifties in a company.
9:15 And they did so, and made them all sit down.
9:16 Then he took the five loaves, and the two fishes, and
 looking up to heaven, he blessed them, and broke, and gave to
 the disciples to set before the multitude.
9:17 And they ate, and were all satisfied: and there was taken
 up of fragments that remained to them, twelve baskets.
9:18 And it came to pass, as he was in retirement praying, his
 disciples were with him; and he asked them, saying, Who say the
 people that I am?
9:19 They answering, said, John the Baptist; but some [say],
 Elijah; and others [say], that one of the ancient prophets is
 risen again.
9:20 He said to them, But who say ye that I am? Peter answering,
 said, Christ of God.
9:21 And he strictly charged them, and commanded [them] to tell
 no man that thing,
9:22 Saying, The Son of man must suffer many things, and be
 rejected by the elders, and chief priests, and scribes, and be
 put to death, and be raised the third day.
9:23 And he said to [them] all, If any [man] will come after me,
 let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow
9:24 For whoever will save his life, shall lose it: but whoever
 will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it.
9:25 For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole
 world, and lose himself, or be cast away?
9:26 For whoever shall be ashamed of me, and of my words, of him
 will the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own
 glory, and [in that of his] Father, and of the holy angels.
9:27 But I tell you in truth, there are some standing here who
 shall not taste death till they see the kingdom of God.
9:28 And it came to pass, about eight days after these sayings,
 he took Peter, and John, and James, and went up upon a mountain
 to pray.
9:29 And as he prayed, the fashion of his countenance was
 altered, and his raiment [was] white [and] glistening.
9:30 And behold, there talked with him two men, who were Moses
 and Elijah.
9:31 Who appeared in glory, and spoke of his decease which he
 should accomplish at Jerusalem.
9:32 But Peter and they that were with him were heavy with
 sleep: and when they were awake, they saw his glory, and the
 two men that stood with him.
9:33 And it came to pass, as they departed from him, Peter said
 to Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here: and let us make
 three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for
 Elijah: not knowing what he said.
9:34 While he was thus speaking, there came a cloud and
 overshadowed them: and they feared as they entered into the
9:35 And there came a voice out of the cloud, saying, This is my
 beloved Son: hear him.
9:36 And when the voice was past, Jesus was found alone. And
 they kept [it] close, and told no man in those days any of
 those things which they had seen.
9:37 And it came to pass, that on the next day, when they had
 come down from the hill, many people met him.
9:38 And behold, a man of the company cried out, saying, Master,
 I beseech thee look upon my son: for he is my only child.
9:39 And lo, a spirit taketh him, and he suddenly crieth out;
 and it teareth him that he foameth, and bruising him, hardly
 departeth from him.
9:40 And I besought thy disciples to cast him out, and they
 could not.
9:41 And Jesus answering, said, O faithless and perverse
 generation, how long shall I be with you, and suffer you? Bring
 thy son hither.
9:42 And as he was yet coming, the demon threw him down, and
 tore [him]. And Jesus rebuked the unclean spirit, and healed
 the child, and delivered him again to his father.
9:43 And they were all amazed at the mighty power of God. But
 while they were all wondering at all things which Jesus did, he
 said to his disciples,
9:44 Let these sayings sink down into your ears: for the Son of
 man will be delivered into the hands of men.
9:45 But they understood not this saying, and it was hid from
 them, that they perceived it not: and they feared to ask him
 concerning that saying.
9:46 Then there arose a reasoning among them, which of them
 should be greatest.
9:47 And Jesus perceiving the thought of their heart, took a
 child, and set him by him,
9:48 And said to them, Whoever shall receive this child in my
 name, receiveth me; and whoever shall receive me, receiveth him
 that sent me: for he that is least among you all, the same
 shall be great.
9:49 And John answered and said, Master, we saw one casting out
 demons in thy name; and we forbad him, because he followeth not
 with us.
9:50 And Jesus said to him, Forbid [him] not: for he that is not
 against us, is for us.
9:51 And it came to pass, when the time was come that he should
 be received up, he steadfastly set his face to go to Jerusalem,
9:52 And sent messengers before his face: and they went and
 entered into a village of the Samaritans, to make ready for
9:53 And they did not receive him, because his face was as
 though he would go to Jerusalem.
9:54 And when his disciples James and John saw [this], they
 said, Lord, wilt thou that we command fire to come down from
 heaven, and consume them, even as Elijah did?
9:55 But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what
 manner of spirit ye are of.
9:56 For the Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but
 to save [them]. And they went to another village.
9:57 And it came to pass, that as they were going in the way, a
 certain [man] said to him, Lord, I will follow thee
 whithersoever thou goest.
9:58 And Jesus said to him, Foxes have holes, and birds of the
 air [have] nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay
 [his] head.
9:59 And he said to another, Follow me. But he said, Lord,
 suffer me first to go and bury my father.
9:60 Jesus said to him, Let the dead bury their dead: but go
 thou and preach the kingdom of God.
9:61 And another also said, Lord, I will follow thee; but let me
 first go [and] bid them farewell who are at my house.
9:62 And Jesus said to him, No man having put his hand to the
 plow, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.
