Luke 7:1-10

1
Now when He concluded all His sayings in the hearing of the people, He entered Capernaum.

2
And a certain centurion’s servant, who was dear to him, was sick and ready to die.

3
So when he heard about Jesus, he sent elders of the Jews to Him, pleading with Him to come and heal his servant.

4
And when they came to Jesus, they begged Him earnestly, saying that the one for whom He should do this was deserving,

5
“for he loves our nation, and has built us a synagogue.”

6
Then Jesus went with them. And when He was already not far from the house, the centurion sent friends to Him, saying to Him, “Lord, do not trouble Yourself, for I am not worthy that You should enter under my roof.

7
Therefore I did not even think myself worthy to come to You. But say the word, and my servant will be healed.

8
For I also am a man placed under authority, having soldiers under me. And I say to one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; and to another, ‘Come,’ and he comes; and to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.”

9
When Jesus heard these things, He marveled at him, and turned around and said to the crowd that followed Him, “I say to you, I have not found such great faith, not even in Israel!”

10
And those who were sent, returning to the house, found the servant well who had been sick.



Jesus was not far from / near the house when the centurion sent friends to say to Jesus:

“Lord, do not trouble Yourself further, for I do not deserve to have you come under my roof.
Lord, do not trouble Yourself further, for I am not worthy for You to come under my roof.

That is why I did not even consider myself worthy to come to You.
Therefore I did not even consider myself worthy to come to You.

But say the word, and my servant will be healed.
But just speak a word, and my slave will be healed.

For I myself am a man under authority, with soldiers under me.
For I also am a man subject to authority, with soldiers under me.

I tell this one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; and that one, ‘Come,’ and he comes.
I say to this one, ‘Go,’ and he goes, and to another, ‘Come,’ and he comes.

I say to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.”
I say to my slave, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.”

When Jesus heard this, He was amazed at him, and turning to the crowd that was following Him:

“I tell you, I have not found such great faith even in Israel.”
“I say to you, not even in Israel have I found such great faith as this man’s.”

Then the men who had been sent returned to the house and found the servant well.
When the messengers who had been sent returned to the house, they found the slave in good health.
