NKJVNew King James Version
5#Luke 7:1–3Now when Jesus had entered Capernaum, a #Matt. 27:54; Acts 10:1centurion came to Him, pleading with Him, 6saying, “Lord, my servant is lying at home paralyzed, dreadfully tormented.”
7And Jesus said to him, “I will come and heal him.”
8The centurion answered and said, “Lord, #Luke 15:19, 21I am not worthy that You should come under my roof. But only #Ps. 107:20speak a word, and my servant will be healed. 9For I also am a man under authority, having soldiers under me. And I say to this one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; and to another, ‘Come,’ and he comes; and to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.”
10When Jesus heard it, He marveled, and said to those who followed, “Assuredly, I say to you, I have not found such great faith, not even in Israel! 11And I say to you that #(Gen. 12:3; Is. 2:2, 3; 11:10); Mal. 1:11; Luke 13:29; (Acts 10:45; 11:18; 14:27; Rom. 15:9–13; Eph. 3:6)many will come from east and west, and sit down with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven. 12But #(Matt. 21:43)the sons of the kingdom #Matt. 13:42, 50; 22:13; 24:51; 25:30; Luke 13:28; 2 Pet. 2:17; Jude 13will be cast out into outer darkness. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.” 13Then Jesus said to the centurion, “Go your way; and as you have believed, so let it be done for you.” And his servant was healed that same hour.
