Parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus.

LUKE xiv. 19, to the end.
There was a certain rich man, which was clothed
in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously
every day:

And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus,
which was laid at his gate, full of sores,

And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.

And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried ;

And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom,

These sections continue the order of the supplementary chapters in St. Luke's Gospel, which had been interrupted by the insertion of the corresponding passages from St. Matthew and St. Mark, in the last two sections. The five harmonizers are unanimous in placing them in their present position.

And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have Luke xvi. 24. mercy on me, and send · Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.

But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou Luke xvi. 25. in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things; but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.

And beside all this, between us and you there Luke xvi. 26. is a great gulf fixed : so that they which would pass

from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.

Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that Luke xvi. 27. thou wouldest send him to


father's house: For I have five brethren ; that he may testify Luke xvi. 28. unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment.

Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and Luke xvi. 29. the prophets; let them hear them.

And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one Luke xvi. 30. went unto them from the dead, they will repent.

And he said unto them, If they hear not Moses Luke xvi. 31 avd the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.

On Forgiveness of Injuries.

LUKE xvii, 1–11. Then said he unto the disciples, ° It is impos- Luke xvii. I. sible but that offences will coine : but woe unto him, through whom they come!

It were better for him that a millstone were Luke xvii. 2. hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.

Take heed to yourselves : P If thy brother tres- Luke xvii. 3. pass against thee, rebuke him ; and if he repent, forgive him.

And if he trespass against thee seven times in a Luke xvii. 4. day, and seven times in a day turn again to thee, saying, I repent; thou shalt forgive him.

And the apostles said unto the Lord, Increase Luke xvii. 5. our faith.

But which of you, having a servant plowing or feeding cattle, will say unto him by and by, when he is come from the field, Go and sit down to meat?

And will not rather say unto him, Make ready wherewith I may sup, and gird thyself, and serve me, till I have eaten and drunken; and afterward thou shalt eat and drink?

Doth he thank that servant because he did the things that were commanded him? I trow not.

So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants; we have done that which was our duty to do.

Christ journeys towards Jerusalem.

LUKE ix. 51, to the end. xvii. 11.
And it came to pass, when the time was come
that he should be received up, he stedfastly set
his face to go to Jerusalem.

And it came to pass, as he went to Jerusalem,
that he passed through the midst of Samaria and

And [he] sent messengers before his face: and they went, and entered into a village of the Samaritans, to make ready for him.

25 There is much difference of opinion among the harmonizers, concerning the particular journey in which the conversation related in this section took place. Lightfoot supposes that the journey of Christ to Jerusalem, here mentioned by St. Luke, is the same with that in John vii. 10. Archbishop Newcome places it after the feast of the dedication, subsequent to Christ's completion of bis last progress round Galilee, and before his triumphant entry into Jerusalem. Newcome's arrangement of this section is here adopted, therefore, in preference to that of Lightfoot. Doddridge has referred this conversation also to the same period. Michaelis does not decide the point; and Pilkington, in his anxiety to preserve the order of St. Luke's Gospel, has not changed its position, but refers it to the same journey. If the word ávalýtis, Luke ix. 51. as Schleusner, Doddridge, the ancient versions, and by far the greater majority of critics, assert, signifies the ascension into heaven, it would fix the period of the circumstance in question to this last journey of our Lord to Jerusalem.

And they did not receive him, because his face Luke ix. 53. was as though he would go to Jerusalem.

And when his disciples James and John saw Luke ix. 54. this, they said, Lord, wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume them, even as 'Elias did ?

But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye Luke ix. 55. know not what manner of spirit ye are of.

For the Son of man is not come to destroy Luke ix. 56. men's lives, but to save them. And they went to another village.

And it came to pass, that, as they went in the Luke ix. 57. way, a certain man said unto him, Lord, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest.

And Jesus said unto him, Foxes have holes, Luke ix. 58. and birds of the air have nests; but the Son of

man hath not where to lay his head. t Matt. viii.21. And he said unto another, Follow me. But Luke ix. 59.

And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put Luke ix. 62. his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.


Christ heals Ten Lepers.

LUKE xvii. 12-20. And as he entered into a certain village, there Luke xvii. 12. met him ten men that were lepers, which stood afar off : And they lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Luke xvii. 13. have

And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks : and he was a Samaritan.

And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed ? but where are the nine ?

There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger.

And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way: tby faith hath made thee whole.

For as the lightning, that lightneth out of the one part under heaven, shineth unto the other part under heaven; so shall also the Son of man be in this day.
