The necessity of penance. The barren fig tree. The cure of the infirm woman. The journey to Jerusalem.
1 And there were present, at that very time, some that told him of the Galileans, whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices.
Aderant autem quidam ipso in tempore, nuntiantes illi de Galilaeis, quorum sanguinem Pilatus miscuit cum sacrificiis eorum.
2 And he answering, said to them: Think you that these Galileans were sinners above all the men of Galilee, because they suffered such things?
Et respondens dixit illis : Putatis quod hi Galilaei prae omnibus Galilaeis peccatores fuerint, quia talia passi sunt?
3 No, I say to you: but unless you shall do penance, you shall all likewise perish.
Non, dico vobis : sed nisi poenitentiam habueritis, omnes similiter peribitis.
4 Or those eighteen upon whom the tower fell in Siloe, and slew them: think you, that they also were debtors above all the men that dwelt in Jerusalem?
Sicut illi decem et octo, supra quos cecidit turris in Siloe, et occidit eos : putatis quia et ipsi debitores fuerint praeter omnes homines habitantes in Jerusalem?
5 No, I say to you; but except you do penance, you shall all likewise perish.
Non, dico vobis : sed si poenitentiam non egeritis, omnes similiter peribitis.
6 He spoke also this parable: A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard, and he came seeking fruit on it, and found none.
Dicebat autem et hanc similitudinem : Arborem fici habebat quidam plantatam in vinea sua, et venit quaerens fructum in illa, et non invenit.
7 And he said to the dresser of the vineyard: Behold, for these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and I find none. Cut it down therefore: why cumbereth it the ground?
Dixit autem ad cultorem vineae : Ecce anni tres sunt ex quo venio quaerens fructum in ficulnea hac, et non invenio : succide ergo illam : ut quid etiam terram occupat?
8 But he answering, said to him: Lord, let it alone this year also, until I dig about it, and dung it.
At ille respondens, dicit illi : Domine dimitte illam et hoc anno, usque dum fodiam circa illam, et mittam stercora,
9 And if happily it bear fruit: but if not, then after that thou shalt cut it down.
et siquidem fecerit fructum : sin autem, in futurum succides eam.
10 And he was teaching in their synagogue on their sabbath.
Erat autem docens in synagoga eorum sabbatis.
11 And behold there was a woman, who had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years: and she was bowed together, neither could she look upwards at all.
Et ecce mulier, quae habebat spiritum infirmitatis annis decem et octo : et erat inclinata, nec omnino poterat sursum respicere.
12 Whom when Jesus saw, he called her unto him, and said to her: Woman, thou art delivered from thy infirmity.
Quam cum videret Jesus, vocavit eam ad se, et ait illi : Mulier, dimissa es ab infirmitate tua.
13 And he laid his hands upon her, and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God.
Et imposuit illi manus, et confestim erecta est, et glorificabat Deum.
14 And the ruler of the synagogue (being angry that Jesus had healed on the sabbath) answering, said to the multitude: Six days there are wherein you ought to work. In them therefore come, and be healed; and not on the sabbath day.
Respondens autem archisynagogus, indignans quia sabbato curasset Jesus, dicebat turbae : Sex dies sunt in quibus oportet operari : in his ergo venite, et curamini, et non in die sabbati.
15 And the Lord answering him, said: Ye hypocrites, doth not every one of you, on the sabbath day, loose his ox or his ass from the manger, and lead them to water?
Respondens autem ad illum Dominus, dixit : Hypocritae, unusquisque vestrum sabbato non solvit bovem suum, aut asinum a praesepio, et ducit adaquare?
16 And ought not this daughter of Abraham, whom Satan hath bound, lo, these eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the sabbath day?
Hanc autem filiam Abrahae, quam alligavit Satanas, ecce decem et octo annis, non oportuit solvi a vinculo isto die sabbati?
17 And when he said these things, all his adversaries were ashamed: and all the people rejoiced for all the things that were gloriously done by him.
Et cum haec diceret, erubescant omnes adversarii ejus : et omnis populus gaudebat in universis, quae gloriosae fiebant ab eo.
18 He said therefore: To what is the kingdom of God like, and whereunto shall I resemble it?
Dicebat ergo : Cui simile est regnum Dei, et cui simile aestimabo illud?
19 It is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took and cast into his garden, and it grew and became a great tree, and the birds of the air lodged in the branches thereof.
Simile est grano sinapis, quod acceptum homo misit in hortum suum, et crevit, et factum est in arborem magnam : et volucres caeli requieverunt in ramis ejus.
20 And again he said: Whereunto shall I esteem the kingdom of God to be like?
Et iterum dixit : Cui simile aestimabo regnum Dei?
21 It is like to leaven, which a woman took and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened.
Simile est fermento, quod acceptum mulier abscondit in farinae sata tria, donec fermentaretur totum.
22 And he went through the cities and towns teaching, and making his journey to Jerusalem.
Et ibat per civitates et castella, docens, et iter faciens in Jerusalem.
23 And a certain man said to him: Lord, are they few that are saved? But he said to them:
Ait autem illi quidam : Domine, si pauci sunt, qui salvantur? Ipse autem dixit ad illos :
24 Strive to enter by the narrow gate; for many, I say to you, shall seek to enter, and shall not be able.
Contendite intrare per angustam portam : quia multi, dico vobis, quaerent intrare, et non poterunt.
25 But when the master of the house shall be gone in, and shall shut the door, you shall begin to stand without, and knock at the door, saying: Lord, open to us. And he answering, shall say to you: I know you not, whence you are.
Cum autem intraverit paterfamilias, et clauserit ostium, incipietis foris stare, et pulsare ostium, dicentes : Domine, aperi nobis : et respondens dicet vobis : Nescio vos unde sitis :
26 Then you shall begin to say: We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets.
tunc incipietis dicere : Manducavimus coram te, et bibimus, et in plateis nostris docuisti.
27 And he shall say to you: I know you not, whence you are: depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity.
Et dicet vobis : Nescio vos unde sitis : discedite a me omnes operarii iniquitatis.
28 There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when you shall see Abraham and Isaac and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out.
Ibi erit fletus et stridor dentium : cum videritis Abraham, et Isaac, et Jacob, et omnes prophetas in regno Dei, vos autem expelli foras.
29 And there shall come from the east and the west, and the north and the south; and shall sit down in the kingdom of God.
Et venient ab oriente, et occidente, et aquilone, et austro, et accumbent in regno Dei.
30 And behold, they are last that shall be first; and they are first that shall be last.
Et ecce sunt novissimi qui erunt primi, et sunt primi qui erunt novissimi.
31 The same day, there came some of the Pharisees, saying to him: Depart, and get thee hence, for Herod hath a mind to kill thee.
In ipsa die accesserunt quidam pharisaeorum, dicentes illi : Exi, et vade hinc : quia Herodes vult te occidere.
32 And he said to them: Go and tell that fox, Behold, I cast out devils, and do cures today and tomorrow, and the third day I am consummated.
Et ait illis : Ite, et dicite vulpi illi : Ecce ejicio daemonia, et sanitates perficio hodie, et cras, et tertia die consummor.
33 Nevertheless I must walk today and tomorrow, and the day following, because it cannot be that a prophet perish, out of Jerusalem.
Verumtamen oportet me hodie et cras et sequenti die ambulare : quia non capit prophetam perire extra Jerusalem.
34 Jerusalem, Jerusalem, that killest the prophets, and stonest them that are sent to thee, how often would I have gathered thy children as the bird doth her brood under her wings, and thou wouldest not?
Jerusalem, Jerusalem, quae occidis prophetas, et lapidas eos qui mittuntur ad te, quoties volui congregare filios tuos quemadmodum avis nidum suum sub pennis, et noluisti?
35 Behold your house shall be left to you desolate. And I say to you, that you shall not see me till the time come, when you shall say: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.
Ecce relinquetur vobis domus vestra deserta. Dico autem vobis, quia non videbitis me donec veniat cum dicetis : Benedictus qui venit in nomine Domini.
