Pristine Grace

Lk 14:1-35, (KJV)
1  And it came to pass, as he went into the house of one of the chief Pharisees to eat bread on the sabbath day, that they watched him.
2  And, behold, there was a certain man before him which had the dropsy.
3  And Jesus answering spake unto the lawyers and Pharisees, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath day?
4  And they held their peace. And he took him, and healed him, and let him go;
5  And answered them, saying, Which of you shall have an ass or an ox fallen into a pit, and will not straightway pull him out on the sabbath day?
6  And they could not answer him again to these things.
7  And he put forth a parable to those which were bidden, when he marked how they chose out the chief rooms; saying unto them.
8  When thou art bidden of any man to a wedding, sit not down in the highest room; lest a more honourable man than thou be bidden of him;
9  And he that bade thee and him come and say to thee, Give this man place; and thou begin with shame to take the lowest room.
10  But when thou art bidden, go and sit down in the lowest room; that when he that bade thee cometh, he may say unto thee, Friend, go up higher: then shalt thou have worship in the presence of them that sit at meat with thee.
11  For whosoever exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.
12  Then said he also to him that bade him, When thou makest a dinner or a supper, call not thy friends, nor thy brethren, neither thy kinsmen, nor thy rich neighbours; lest they also bid thee again, and a recompence be made thee.
13  But when thou makest a feast, call the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind:
14  And thou shalt be blessed; for they cannot recompense thee: for thou shalt be recompensed at the resurrection of the just.
15  And when one of them that sat at meat with him heard these things, he said unto him, Blessed is he that shall eat bread in the kingdom of God.
16  Then said he unto him, A certain man made a great supper, and bade many:
17  And sent his servant at supper time to say to them that were bidden, Come; for all things are now ready.
18  And they all with one consent began to make excuse. The first said unto him, I have bought a piece of ground, and I must needs go and see it: I pray thee have me excused.
19  And another said, I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to prove them: I pray thee have me excused.
20  And another said, I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come.
21  So that servant came, and shewed his lord these things. Then the master of the house being angry said to his servant, Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in hither the poor, and the maimed, and the halt, and the blind.
22  And the servant said, Lord, it is done as thou hast commanded, and yet there is room.
23  And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.
24  For I say unto you, That none of those men which were bidden shall taste of my supper.
25  And there went great multitudes with him: and he turned, and said unto them,
26  If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.
27  And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.
28  For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it?
29  Lest haply, after he hath laid the foundation, and is not able to finish it, all that behold it begin to mock him,
30  Saying, This man began to build, and was not able to finish.
31  Or what king, going to make war against another king, sitteth not down first, and consulteth whether he be able with ten thousand to meet him that cometh against him with twenty thousand?
32  Or else, while the other is yet a great way off, he sendeth an ambassage, and desireth conditions of peace.
33  So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.
34  Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be seasoned?
35  It is neither fit for the land, nor yet for the dunghill; but men cast it out. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.

Lk 14:1-35, (MKJV)
1  And as He went into the house of one of the chief Pharisees to eat bread on the sabbath day, it happened that they watched Him.
2  And behold, a certain man was dropsical before Him.
3  And answering, Jesus spoke to the lawyers and Pharisees, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath day ?
4  And they were silent. And taking him , He healed him and let him go.
5  And He answered them, saying, Which of you shall have an ass or an ox fall into a pit and will not immediately pull him out on the sabbath day?
6  And they could not answer Him again as to these things.
7  And He put forth a parable to those who were invited, when He noted how they chose out the chief places, saying to them,
8  When you are invited by anyone to a wedding, do not recline in the chief seat, lest a more honorable man than you may be invited by him.
9  And he who invited you and him shall come and say to you, Give place to this man; and then you begin with shame to take the last place.
10  But when you are invited, go and recline in the lowest place, so that when he who invited you comes, he may say to you, Friend, go up higher. Then glory shall be to you before those reclining with you.
11  For whoever exalts himself shall be abased, and he who humbles himself shall be exalted.
12  And He also said to him who invited Him, When you make a dinner or a supper, do not call your friends or your brothers, or your kinsmen, or your rich neighbors; lest they also invite you again, and a recompense be made to you.
13  But when you make a feast, call the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind,
14  and you shall be blessed, for they cannot repay you; for you shall be repaid at the resurrection of the just.
15  And one of those who reclined with Him heard these things, and he said to Him, Blessed are those eating bread in the kingdom of God.
16  And He said to him, A certain man made a great supper and invited many.
17  And he sent his servant at supper time to say to those who were invited, Come, for all things are now ready.
18  And all with one consent began to make excuse. The first said to him, I have bought a piece of ground, I must go and see it. I beg you, have me excused.
19  And another said, I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I am going to test them. I beg you, have me excused.
20  And another said, I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come.
21  And coming up that servant reported these things to his lord. And the master of the house, being angry, said to his servant, Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city and bring in here the poor and the maimed, and the lame and the blind.
22  And the servant said, Lord, it is done as you have commanded, and still there is room.
23  And the lord said to the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges and compel them to come in, so that my house may be filled.
24  For I say to you that none of these men who were invited shall taste of my supper.
25  And great crowds went with Him. And He turned and said to them,
26  If anyone comes to Me and does not hate his father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yes, and his own life also, he cannot be My disciple.
27  And whoever does not bear his cross and come after Me, he cannot be My disciple.
28  For which of you, intending to build a tower, does not sit down first and count the cost, whether he may have enough to finish it;
29  lest perhaps, after he has laid the foundation and is not able to finish, all those seeing begin to mock him,
30  saying, This man began to build and was not able to finish.
31  Or what king, going to make war against another king, does not first sit down and consult whether he is able with ten thousand to meet him who comes against him with twenty thousand?
32  Or else, while the other is still a great way off, he sends a delegation and asks conditions of peace.
33  So then, everyone of you who does not forsake all his possessions, he cannot be My disciple.
34  Salt is good, but if the salt has become tasteless, with what shall it be seasoned?
35  It is not fit for the land, nor for manure, but men throw it out. He who has ears to hear, let him hear.

Lk 14:1-35, (NASB)
1  It happened that when He went into the house of one of the leaders of the Pharisees on the Sabbath to eat bread, they were watching Him closely.
2  And there in front of Him was a man suffering from dropsy.
3  And Jesus answered and spoke to the lawyers and Pharisees, saying, "Is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath, or not?"
4  But they kept silent. And He took hold of him and healed him, and sent him away.
5  And He said to them, "Which one of you will have a son or an ox fall into a well, and will not immediately pull him out on a Sabbath day?"
6  And they could make no reply to this.
7  And He began speaking a parable to the invited guests when He noticed how they had been picking out the places of honor at the table, saying to them,
8  "When you are invited by someone to a wedding feast, do not take the place of honor, for someone more distinguished than you may have been invited by him,
9  and he who invited you both will come and say to you, 'Give your place to this man,' and then in disgrace you proceed to occupy the last place.
10  "But when you are invited, go and recline at the last place, so that when the one who has invited you comes, he may say to you, 'Friend, move up higher'; then you will have honor in the sight of all who are at the table with you.
11  "For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted."
12  And He also went on to say to the one who had invited Him, "When you give a luncheon or a dinner, do not invite your friends or your brothers or your relatives or rich neighbors, otherwise they may also invite you in return and that will be your repayment.
13  "But when you give a reception, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind,
14  and you will be blessed, since they do not have the means to repay you; for you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous."
15  When one of those who were reclining at the table with Him heard this, he said to Him, "Blessed is everyone who will eat bread in the kingdom of God!"
16  But He said to him, "A man was giving a big dinner, and he invited many;
17  and at the dinner hour he sent his slave to say to those who had been invited, 'Come; for everything is ready now.'
18  "But they all alike began to make excuses. The first one said to him, 'I have bought a piece of land and I need to go out and look at it; please consider me excused.'
19  "Another one said, 'I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I am going to try them out; please consider me excused.'
20  "Another one said, 'I have married a wife, and for that reason I cannot come.'
21  "And the slave came back and reported this to his master. Then the head of the household became angry and said to his slave, 'Go out at once into the streets and lanes of the city and bring in here the poor and crippled and blind and lame.'
22  "And the slave said, 'Master, what you commanded has been done, and still there is room.'
23  "And the master said to the slave, 'Go out into the highways and along the hedges, and compel them to come in, so that my house may be filled.
24  'For I tell you, none of those men who were invited shall taste of my dinner.'"
25  Now large crowds were going along with Him; and He turned and said to them,
26  "If anyone comes to Me, and does not hate his own father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yes, and even his own life, he cannot be My disciple.
27  "Whoever does not carry his own cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple.
28  "For which one of you, when he wants to build a tower, does not first sit down and calculate the cost to see if he has enough to complete it?
29  "Otherwise, when he has laid a foundation and is not able to finish, all who observe it begin to ridicule him,
30  saying, 'This man began to build and was not able to finish.'
31  "Or what king, when he sets out to meet another king in battle, will not first sit down and consider whether he is strong enough with ten thousand men to encounter the one coming against him with twenty thousand?
32  "Or else, while the other is still far away, he sends a delegation and asks for terms of peace.
33  "So then, none of you can be My disciple who does not give up all his own possessions.
34  "Therefore, salt is good; but if even salt has become tasteless, with what will it be seasoned?
35  "It is useless either for the soil or for the manure pile; it is thrown out. He who has ears to hear, let him hear."

Lk 14:1-35, (LITV)
1  And it occurred, on His going into a house of one of the Pharisee leaders on a sabbath to eat bread, even they were closely observing Him.
2  And behold, a certain man was dropsical before Him.
3  And answering, Jesus spoke to the lawyers and Pharisees, asking whether it is lawful to heal on the sabbath.
4  And they were silent. And taking the man, He cured him and let him go.
5  And answering to them He said, Whose ass or ox of yours shall fall into a pit, and he will not at once pull it up on the sabbath day?
6  And they were not able to reply to Him against these things.
7  And He spoke a parable to those who had been invited, noting how they were choosing out the chief seats, saying to them,
8  When you are invited by anyone to wedding feasts, do not recline at the chief seat lest one more honorable than you be invited by him,
9  and coming, he who invited you will say to you, Give this one place. And then you begin with shame to take the last place.
10  But when you are invited, going in, recline at the last place, so that when he who has invited you may come, he may say to you, Friend, go up higher. Then glory will be to you before those reclining with you.
11  For everyone exalting himself will be humbled, and the one humbling himself will be exalted.
12  And He also said to him who had invited Him, When you make a dinner or supper, do not call your friends, nor your brothers, nor your relatives, nor rich neighbors, lest they also should invite you in return, and it become a repayment to you.
13  But when you make a banquet, call the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind;
14  and then you will be blessed, for they have nothing to repay you. For it will be repaid to you in the resurrection of the just.
15  And one of those reclining with Him, hearing these things, he said to Him, Blessed are those eating bread in the kingdom of God.
16  But He said to him, A certain man made a great supper and invited many.
17  And he sent his slave at the supper hour to say to those who had been invited, Come, for now all is ready.
18  And all with one mind began to beg off. The first said to him, I have bought a field, and I have need to go out and see it; I ask you, have me excused.
19  And another said, I bought five yoke of oxen and I am going to try them out; I ask you, have me excused.
20  And another said, I married a wife, and for this reason I am not able to come.
21  And having come up that slave reported these things to his lord. Then being angry, the housemaster said to his slave, Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in here the poor and maimed and lame and blind ones.
22  And the slave said, Sir, it has been done as you ordered, and still there is room.
23  And the lord said to the slave, Go out into the highways and hedges and compel them to come in, so that my house may be filled.
24  For I say to you that not one of those men who had been invited shall taste of my supper.
25  And great crowds came together to Him. And turning, He said to them,
26  If anyone comes to Me and does not hate his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brothers and sisters, and besides, even his own life, he cannot be My disciple.
27  And whoever does not bear his cross and come after Me, he cannot be My disciple.
28  For who of you desiring to build a tower does not first sit down and count the cost, whether he has the things to finish;
29  that having laid a foundation, and not having strength to finish, all those seeing begin to mock him,
30  saying, This man began to build, and did not have strength to finish.
31  Or what king going to attack another king in war does not first sit down and take counsel whether he is able with ten thousand to meet those coming upon him with twenty thousands?
32  But if not, he being still far off, sending a delegation, he asks the things for peace.
33  So then every one of you who does not abandon all his possessions is not able to be My disciple.
34  The salt is good, but if the salt becomes tasteless, with what will it be seasoned?
35  It is not fit for soil nor for manure; they throw it out. The one having ears to hear, let him hear.
