And it came to pass the day after, that he [Jesus WU] went into a city called Nain; and many of his disciples went with him, and much people. LK 7:11 Now when he came nigh [near] to the gate of the city, behold, there was a dead man carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow: and much people of the city was with her. LK 7:12 And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her, and said unto her, Weep not. LK 7:13 And he came and touched the bier [coffin]: and they that bare him [the bearers] stood still. And he said, Young man, I say unto thee, Arise. LK 7:14 And he that was dead sat up, and began to speak. And he [Jesus WU] delivered him to his mother. LK 7:15 And there came a fear on all: and they glorified God, saying, That a great prophet is risen up among us; and, That God hath visited his people. LK 7:16 And this rumour of [report concerning] him went forth throughout all Judaea, and throughout all the region round about. LK 7:17
And the disciples of John shewed him of [told him about] all these things. LK 7:18 And John calling unto him two of his disciples sent them to Jesus, saying, Art thou he that should [is to WU] come? or look we [should we look] for another? LK 7:19 When the men were come unto him [Jesus WU], they said, John Baptist hath sent us unto thee, saying, Art thou he that should come? or look we for another? LK 7:20
And in that same hour he [Jesus WU] cured many of their infirmities [diseases] and plagues, and of evil spirits; and unto many that were blind he gave sight. LK 7:21 Then Jesus answering said unto them, Go your way, and tell John what things ye have seen and heard; how that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, to the poor the gospel [good news] is preached. LK 7:22 And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in [takes no offense at WU] me. LK 7:23
And when the messengers of John were departed, he [Jesus WU] began to speak unto the people concerning John, What went ye out into the wilderness for to see? A reed shaken with the wind? LK 7:24 But what went ye out for to see? A man clothed in soft raiment [clothing]? Behold, they which are gorgeously apparelled, and live delicately [luxuriously WU], are in kings' courts. LK 7:25 But what went ye out for to see? A prophet? Yea [yes], I say unto you, and much more than a prophet. LK 7:26 This is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face [ahead of you], which shall prepare thy way before thee. LK 7:27 For I say unto you, Among those that are born of women there is not a greater prophet than John the Baptist: but he that is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he. LK 7:28 And all the people that heard him, and the publicans [tax collectors], justified God [declared God to be just], being [having been] baptized with the baptism of John. LK 7:29 But the Pharisees and lawyers [experts in religious law WU] rejected the counsel of God against [for WU] themselves, being not baptized of [by] him. LK 7:30 And the Lord said, Whereunto [to what] then shall I liken [compare WU] the men of this generation? and to what are they like? LK 7:31 They are like unto children sitting in the marketplace, and calling one to another, and saying, We have piped [played the flute WU] unto you, and ye have not danced; we have mourned [wailed mournfully WU] to you, and ye have not wept. LK 7:32 For John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking wine; and ye say, He hath a devil [demon]. LK 7:33 The Son of man is come eating and drinking; and ye say, Behold a gluttonous man, and a winebibber [drunkard], a friend of publicans [tax collectors] and sinners! LK 7:34 But wisdom is justified of [proved right by WU] all her children. LK 7:35
