1750 Challoner Revision of the Douay-Rheims (DR)
1 Christ preacheth repentance upon the punishment of the Galileans, and others. 6 The fruitless fig tree may not stand. 11 He healeth the crooked woman: 18 sheweth the powerful working of the Word in the hearts of his chosen, by the parable of the grain of mustard seed, and of leaven: 24 exhorteth to enter in at the strait gate, 31 and reproveth Herod and Jerusalem.
13:1 ¶ And there were present, at that very time, some that told him of the Galileans, whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices.
13:2 And he answering, said to them: Think you that these Galileans were sinners above all the men of Galilee, because they suffered such things?
13:3 No, I say to you: but unless you shall do penance, you shall all likewise perish.
13:4 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?
13:5 No, I say to you: but except you do penance, you shall all likewise perish.
13:6 ¶ 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.
13:7 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?
13:8 But he answering, said to him: Lord, let it alone this year also, until I dig about it and dung it.
13:9 And if happily it bear fruit: but if not, then after that thou shalt cut it down.
13:10 And he was teaching in their synagogue on their sabbath.
13:11 ¶ 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.
13:12 Whom when Jesus saw, he called her unto him and said to her: Woman, thou art delivered from thy infirmity.
13:13 And he laid his hands upon her: and immediately she was made straight and glorified God.
13:14 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.
13:15 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?
13:16 And ought not this daughter of Abraham, whom Satan hath bound, lo, these eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the sabbath day?
13:17 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.
13:18 ¶ He said therefore: To what is the kingdom of God like, and whereunto shall I resemble it?
13:19 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.
13:20 And again he said: Whereunto shall I esteem the kingdom of God to be like?
13:21 It is like to leaven, which a woman took and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened.
13:22 And he went through the cities and towns teaching and making his journey to Jerusalem.
13:23 And a certain man said to him: Lord, are they few that are saved? But he said to them:
13:24 ¶ Strive to enter by the narrow gate: for many, I say to you, shall seek to enter and shall not be able.
13:25 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.
13:26 Then you shall begin to say: We have eaten and drunk in thy presence: and thou hast taught in our streets.
13:27 And he shall say to you: I know you not, whence you are. Depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity.
13:28 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.
13:29 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.
13:30 And behold, they are last that shall be first: and they are first that shall be last.
13:31 ¶ 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.
13:32 And he said to them: Go and tell that fox: Behold, I cast out devils and do cures, to-day and to-morrow, and the third day I am consummated.
13:33 Nevertheless, I must walk to-day and to-morrow and the day following, because it cannot be that a prophet perish, out of Jerusalem.
13:34 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?
13:35 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.
