[Jesus] journeyed on through towns and villages, teaching, and making His way toward Jerusalem.
And someone asked Him, Lord, will only a few be saved (rescued, delivered from the penalties of the last judgment, and made partakers of the salvation by Christ)? And He said to them,
Strive to enter by the narrow door [force yourselves through it], for many, I tell you, will try to enter and will not be able.
When once the Master of the house gets up and closes the door, and you begin to stand outside and to knock at the door [again and again], saying, Lord, open to us! He will answer you, I do not know where [what household–certainly not Mine] you come from.
