Matthew 11 - AMP

2 Now when John in prison heard about the activities of Christ, he sent a message by his disciples 3 And asked Him, Are You the One Who was to come, or should we keep on expecting a different one? 4 And Jesus replied to them, Go and report to John what you hear and see: 5 The blind receive their sight and the lame walk, lepers are cleansed (by healing) and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up and the poor have good news (the Gospel) preached to them. 6 And blessed (happy, fortunate, and Alexander Souter, Pocket Lexicon.to be envied) is he who takes no offense at Me and finds no cause for stumbling in or through Me and is not hindered from seeing the Truth. 7 Then as these men went their way, Jesus began to speak to the crowds about John: What did you go out in the wilderness (desert) to see? A reed swayed by the wind? 8 What did you go out to see then? A man clothed in soft garments? Behold, those who wear soft clothing are in the houses of kings. 9 But what did you go out to see? A prophet? Yes, I tell you, and one G. Abbott-Smith, Manual Greek Lexicon.superior to a prophet. 10 This is the one of whom it is written, Behold, I send My messenger ahead of You, who shall make ready Your way before You. 11 Truly I tell you, among those born of women there has not risen anyone greater than John the Baptist; yet he who is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he. 12 And from the days of John the Baptist until the present time, the kingdom of heaven has endured violent assault, and violent men seize it by force . 13 For all the Prophets and the Law prophesied up until John. 14 And if you are willing to receive and accept it, John himself is Elijah who was to come . 15 He who has ears to hear, let him be listening and let him consider and G. Abbott-Smith, Manual Greek Lexicon.perceive and comprehend by hearing. 16 But to what shall I liken this generation? It is like little children sitting in the marketplaces who call to their playmates, 17 We piped to you , and you did not dance; we wailed dirges , and you did not mourn and beat your breasts and weep aloud. 18 For John came neither eating nor drinking , and they say, He has a demon! 19 The Son of Man came eating and drinking , and they say, Behold, a glutton and a wine drinker, a friend of tax collectors and sinners! Yet wisdom is justified and vindicated by what she does (her deeds) and by Many manuscripts read ``children" here, as in Luke 7:35.her children. 20 Then He began to censure and reproach the cities in which most of His mighty works had been performed, because they did not repent . 21 Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the mighty works done in you had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would long ago have repented in sackcloth and ashes . 22 I tell you , it shall be more endurable for Tyre and Sidon on the day of judgment than for you. 23 And you, Capernaum, are you to be lifted up to heaven? You shall be brought down to Hades ! For if the mighty works done in you had been done in Sodom, it would have continued until today. 24 But I tell you, it shall be more endurable for the land of Sodom on the day of judgment than for you. 25 At that time Jesus began to say, I thank You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth , that You have hidden these things from the wise and clever and learned, and revealed them to babies . 26 Yes, Father, such was Your gracious will and good pleasure. 27 All things have been entrusted and delivered to Me by My Father; and no one Marvin Vincent, Word Studies.fully knows and Joseph Thayer, A Greek-English Lexicon.accurately understands the Son except the Father, and no one Marvin Vincent, Word Studies.fully knows and Joseph Thayer, A Greek-English Lexicon.accurately understands the Father except the Son and anyone to whom the Son Joseph Thayer, A Greek-English Lexicon.deliberately wills to make Him known. 28 Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy-laden and overburdened, and I will cause you to rest. 29 Take My yoke upon you and learn of Me, for I am gentle (meek) and humble (lowly) in heart, and you will find rest (Alexander Souter, Pocket Lexicon.relief and ease and refreshment and Joseph Thayer, A Greek-English Lexicon.recreation and blessed quiet) for your souls. 30 For My yoke is wholesome (useful, James Moulton and George Milligan, The Vocabulary.good--not harsh, hard, sharp, or pressing, but comfortable, gracious, and pleasant), and My burden is light and easy to be borne.
