 239    The  UNJUST  JUDGE 
   Matt       Mark    Luke 18
     1  And he told them a parable,
      to the effect that they ought always to pray
   

 

and not lose heart.
   

2

He said,
      "In a certain city there was a judge
      who neither feared god nor regarded man;
   

3

and there was a widow in that city
      who kept coming to him and saying,
      'Vindicate me against my adversary.'
   

4

For a while he refused; 
      but afterward he said to him,
      'Though I neither fear God nor regard man,
   

5

yet because this widow bothers me, 
      I will vindicate her,
      or she will wear me out 
      by her continual coming.'
   

6

And the Lord said,
      'Hear what the unrighteous judge says.
   

7

And will not God vindicate his elect,
      who cry to him day and night?
      Will he delay long over them?
   

8

I tell you,
      he will vindicate them speedily.
      Nevertheless, when the Son of man comes,
   

 

will find faith on earth?"
