Luke 6 - AMP

2 But some of the Pharisees asked them, Why are you doing what is not permitted to be done on the Sabbath days? 3 And Jesus replied to them, saying, Have you never so much as read what David did when he was hungry, he and those who were with him?-- 4 How he went into the house of God and took and ate the loaves of the showbread, which it is not permitted for any except only the priests to eat, and also gave to those with him? 5 And He said to them, The Son of Man is Lord even of the Sabbath. 6 And it occurred on another Sabbath that when He went into the synagogue and taught, a man was present whose right hand was withered. 7 And the scribes and the Pharisees kept watching Jesus to see whether He would heal on the Sabbath, in order that they might get accusation against Him. 8 But He was aware all along of their thoughts, and He said to the man with the withered hand, Come and stand here in the midst. And he arose and stood there. 9 Then Jesus said to them, I ask you, is it lawful and right on the Sabbath to do good or to do evil, to save a life or to destroy it? 10 Then He glanced around at them all and said to the man, Stretch out your hand! And he did so, and his hand was fully restored Some manuscripts add this phrase.like the other one. 11 But they were filled with lack of understanding and senseless rage and discussed (consulted) with one another what they might do to Jesus. 12 Now in those days it occurred that He went up into a mountain to pray, and spent the whole night in prayer to God. 13 And when it was day, He summoned His disciples and selected from them twelve, whom He named apostles (special messengers): 14 They were Simon, whom He named Peter, and his brother Andrew; and James and John; and Philip and Bartholomew; 15 And Matthew and Thomas; and James son of Alphaeus, and Simon who was called the Zealot, 16 And Judas son of James, and Judas Iscariot, who became a traitor (a treacherous, basely faithless person). 17 And Jesus came down with them and took His stand on a level spot, with a great crowd of His disciples and a vast throng of people from all over Judea and Jerusalem and the seacoast of Tyre and Sidon, who came to listen to Him and to be cured of their diseases-- 18 Even those who were disturbed and troubled with unclean spirits, and they were being healed . 19 And all the multitude were seeking to touch Him, for healing power was all the while going forth from Him and curing them all . 20 And solemnly lifting up His eyes on His disciples, He said: Blessed (happy--Hermann Cremer, Biblico-Theological Lexicon.with life-joy and satisfaction in God's favor and salvation, apart from your outward condition--and Alexander Souter, Pocket Lexicon.to be envied) are you poor and Joseph Thayer, A Greek-English Lexicon.lowly and afflicted (destitute of wealth, influence, position, and honor), for the kingdom of God is yours! 21 Blessed (happy--Hermann Cremer, Biblico-Theological Lexicon.with life-joy and satisfaction in God's favor and salvation, apart from your outward condition--and Alexander Souter, Pocket Lexicon.to be envied) are you who hunger and seek with eager desire now, for you shall be filled and completely satisfied! Blessed (happy--Hermann Cremer, Biblico-Theological Lexicon.with life-joy and satisfaction in God's favor and salvation, apart from your outward condition--and Alexander Souter, Pocket Lexicon.to be envied) are you who weep and sob now, for you shall laugh! 22 Blessed (happy--Hermann Cremer, Biblico-Theological Lexicon.with life-joy and satisfaction in God's favor and salvation, apart from your outward condition--and Alexander Souter, Pocket Lexicon.to be envied) are you when people despise (hate) you, and when they exclude and excommunicate you and revile and denounce you and defame and cast out and spurn your name as evil (wicked) on account of the Son of Man. 23 Rejoice and be glad at such a time and exult and leap for joy, for behold, your reward is rich and great and strong and intense and abundant in heaven; for even so their forefathers treated the prophets. 24 But woe to (alas for) you who are rich (Joseph Thayer, A Greek-English Lexicon.abounding in material resources), for you already are receiving your consolation (the solace and sense of strengthening and cheer that come from prosperity) and have taken and enjoyed your comfort in full . 25 Woe to (alas for) you who are full now (completely filled, luxuriously gorged and satiated), for you shall hunger and suffer want! Woe to (alas for) you who laugh now, for you shall mourn and weep and wail! 26 Woe to (alas for) you when everyone speaks fairly and handsomely of you and praises you, for even so their forefathers did to the false prophets. 27 But I say to you who are listening now to Me: love your enemies, treat well (do good to, act nobly toward) those who detest you and pursue you with hatred, 28 Invoke blessings upon and pray for the happiness of those who curse you, implore God's blessing (favor) upon those who abuse you . 29 To the one who strikes you on the Joseph Thayer, A Greek-English Lexicon.jaw or cheek, offer the other Joseph Thayer, A Greek-English Lexicon.jaw or cheek also; and from him who takes away your outer garment, do not withhold your undergarment as well. 30 Give away to everyone who begs of you , and of him who takes away from you your goods, do not demand or require them back again. 31 And as you would like and desire that men would do to you, do exactly so to them. 32 If you love those who love you, what Marvin Vincent, Word Studies.quality of credit and thanks is that to you? For even William Tyndale, The Tyndale Bible.the sinners love their lovers (those who love them). 33 And if you are kind and good and do favors to and benefit those who are kind and good and do favors to and benefit you, what Marvin Vincent, Word Studies.quality of credit and thanks is that to you? For even Joseph Thayer, A Greek-English Lexicon.the preeminently sinful do the same. 34 And if you lend money Marvin Vincent, Word Studies.at interest to those from whom you hope to receive, what Marvin Vincent, Word Studies.quality of credit and thanks is that to you? Even notorious sinners lend money Marvin Vincent, Word Studies.at interest to sinners, so as to recover as much again. 35 But love your enemies and be kind and do good and lend, expecting and hoping for nothing in return but Marvin Vincent, Word Studies.considering nothing as lost and despairing of no one; and then your recompense (your reward) will be great (rich, strong, intense, and abundant), and you will be sons of the Most High, for He is kind and charitable and good to the ungrateful and the selfish and wicked. 36 So be merciful (sympathetic, tender, responsive, and compassionate) even as your Father is . 37 Judge not , and you will not be judged; do not condemn and pronounce guilty, and you will not be condemned and pronounced guilty; acquit and forgive and Literal translation.release (give up resentment, let it drop), and you will be acquitted and forgiven and Literal meaning.released. 38 Give, and will be given to you; good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over, will they pour Marvin Vincent, Word Studies.into the bosom . For with the measure you deal out , it will be measured back to you. 39 He further told them G. Abbott-Smith, Manual Greek Lexicon.a proverb: Can a blind guide and direct a blind ? Will they not both stumble into a ditch or a Alexander Souter, Pocket Lexicon.hole in the ground? 40 A pupil is not superior to his teacher, but everyone completely trained (readjusted, restored, set to rights, and perfected) will be like his teacher. 41 Why do you see the speck that is in your brother's eye but do not notice or consider the beam that is in your own eye? 42 Or how can you say to your brother, Brother, allow me to take out the speck that is in your eye, when you yourself do not see the beam that is in your own eye? You actor (pretender, hypocrite)! First take the beam out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take out the speck that is in your brother's eye. 43 For there is no good (healthy) tree that bears decayed (worthless, stale) fruit, nor on the other hand does a decayed (worthless, sickly) tree bear good fruit. 44 For each tree is known and identified by its own fruit; for figs are not gathered from thornbushes, nor is a cluster of grapes picked from a bramblebush. 45 The upright (honorable, intrinsically good) man out of the good treasure in his heart produces what is upright (honorable and intrinsically good), and the evil man out of the evil storehouse brings forth that which is depraved (wicked and intrinsically evil); for out of the abundance (overflow) of the heart his mouth speaks. 46 Why do you call Me, Lord, Lord, and do not what I tell you? 47 For everyone who comes to Me and listens to My words and does them, I will show you what he is like: 48 He is like a man building a house, who dug and went down deep and laid a foundation upon the rock; and when a flood arose, the torrent broke against that house and could not shake or move it, because it had been securely built or Some manuscripts so read.founded on a rock. 49 But he who merely hears and does not practice doing My words is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation, against which the torrent burst, and immediately it collapsed and fell, and the breaking and ruin of that house was great.

Love Unquenchable
Shared by: Richard Tow on Feb, 2016
Summary: In many sectors of our society “tolerance” is equated with “love.” But is that a biblical concept? God is love; but was He tolerant of Sodom’s sin? Perhaps current assumptions about what love is should be examined in the light of biblical revelation.
