@ And it came to pass, when the time was come that he should be received up, he stedfastly set his face to go to Jerusalem,
@ And sent messengers before his face: and they went, and entered into a village of the Samaritans, to make ready for him.
@ And they did not receive him, because his face was as though he would go to Jerusalem.
@ And when his disciples James and John saw this, they said, Lord, wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume them, even as Elias did?
@ But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of.
@ For the Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them. And they went to another village.
@ And it came to pass, that, as they went in the way, a certain man said unto him, Lord, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest.
@ And Jesus said unto him, Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head.
@ And he said unto another, Follow me. But he said, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father.
@ Jesus said unto him, Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and preach the kingdom of God.
@ And another also said, Lord, I will follow thee; but let me first go bid them farewell, which are at home at my house.
@ And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.
