Luke 7:1-10 AMPC
AFTER JESUS had finished all that He had to say in the hearing of the people [on the mountain], He entered Capernaum.
Now a centurion had a bond servant who was held in honor and highly valued by him, who was sick and at the point of death.
And when the centurion heard of Jesus, he sent some Jewish elders to Him, requesting Him to come and make his bond servant well.
And when they reached Jesus, they begged Him earnestly, saying, He is worthy that You should do this for him,
For he loves our nation and he built us our synagogue [at his own expense].
And Jesus went with them. But when He was not far from the house, the centurion sent [some] friends to Him, saying, Lord, do not trouble [Yourself], for I am not sufficiently worthy to have You come under my roof;
Neither did I consider myself worthy to come to You. But [just] speak a word, and my servant boy will be healed.
For I also am a man [daily] subject to authority, with soldiers under me. And I say to one, Go, and he goes; and to another, Come, and he comes; and to my bond servant, Do this, and he does it.
Now when Jesus heard this, He marveled at him, and He turned and said to the crowd that followed Him, I tell you, not even in [all] Israel have I found such great faith [as this].
And when the messengers who had been sent returned to the house, they found the bond servant who had been ill quite well again.
