Samaritans Reject Jesus

NIVESVNASBKJVHCSB
51As the time approached for him to be taken up to heaven, Jesus resolutely set out for Jerusalem.51When the days drew near for him to be taken up, he set his face to go to Jerusalem.51When the days were approaching for His ascension, He was determined to go to Jerusalem;51And it came to pass, when the time was come that he should be received up, he stedfastly set his face to go to Jerusalem,51When the days were coming to a close for Him to be taken up, He determined to journey to Jerusalem.
52And he sent messengers on ahead, who went into a Samaritan village to get things ready for him;52And he sent messengers ahead of him, who went and entered a village of the Samaritans, to make preparations for him.52and He sent messengers on ahead of Him, and they went and entered a village of the Samaritans to make arrangements for Him.52And sent messengers before his face: and they went, and entered into a village of the Samaritans, to make ready for him.52He sent messengers ahead of Him, and on the way they entered a village of the Samaritans to make preparations for Him.
53but the people there did not welcome him, because he was heading for Jerusalem.53But the people did not receive him, because his face was set toward Jerusalem.53But they did not receive Him, because He was traveling toward Jerusalem.53And they did not receive him, because his face was as though he would go to Jerusalem.53But they did not welcome Him, because He determined to journey to Jerusalem.
54When the disciples James and John saw this, they asked, "Lord, do you want us to call fire down from heaven to destroy them?"54And when his disciples James and John saw it, they said, “Lord, do you want us to tell fire to come down from heaven and consume them?”54When His disciples James and John saw this, they said, "Lord, do You want us to command fire to come down from heaven and consume them?"54And 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?54When the disciples James and John saw this, they said, "Lord, do You want us to call down fire from heaven to consume them?"

55But Jesus turned and rebuked them.55But he turned and rebuked them.55But He turned and rebuked them, and said, "You do not know what kind of spirit you are of;55But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of.55But He turned and rebuked them,
56Then he and his disciples went to another village.56And they went on to another village.56for the Son of Man did not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them." And they went on to another village.56For the Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them. And they went to another village.56and they went to another village.

57As they were walking along the road, a man said to him, "I will follow you wherever you go."57As they were going along the road, someone said to him, “I will follow you wherever you go.”57As they were going along the road, someone said to Him, "I will follow You wherever You go."57And 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.57As they were traveling on the road someone said to Him, "I will follow You wherever You go!"
58Jesus replied, "Foxes have dens and birds have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head."58And Jesus said to him, “Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay his head.”58And Jesus said to him, "The foxes have holes and the birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head."58And 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.58Jesus told him, "Foxes have dens, and birds of the sky have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay His head."
59He said to another man, "Follow me." But he replied, "Lord, first let me go and bury my father."59To another he said, “Follow me.” But he said, “Lord, let me first go and bury my father.”59And He said to another, "Follow Me." But he said, "Lord, permit me first to go and bury my father."59And he said unto another, Follow me. But he said, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father.59Then He said to another, "Follow Me."" Lord," he said, "first let me go bury my father."
60Jesus said to him, "Let the dead bury their own dead, but you go and proclaim the kingdom of God."60And Jesus said to him, “Leave the dead to bury their own dead. But as for you, go and proclaim the kingdom of God.”60But He said to him, "Allow the dead to bury their own dead; but as for you, go and proclaim everywhere the kingdom of God."60Jesus said unto him, Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and preach the kingdom of God.60But He told him, "Let the dead bury their own dead, but you go and spread the news of the kingdom of God."

61Still another said, "I will follow you, Lord; but first let me go back and say goodbye to my family."61Yet another said, “I will follow you, Lord, but let me first say farewell to those at my home.”61Another also said, "I will follow You, Lord; but first permit me to say good-bye to those at home."61And another also said, Lord, I will follow thee; but let me first go bid them farewell, which are at home at my house.61Another also said, "I will follow You, Lord, but first let me go and say good-bye to those at my house."
62Jesus replied, "No one who puts a hand to the plow and looks back is fit for service in the kingdom of God."62Jesus said to him, “No one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back is fit for the kingdom of God.”62But Jesus said to him, "No one, after putting his hand to the plow and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God."62And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.62But Jesus said to him, "No one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back is fit for the kingdom of God."
