Luke 7 : 28 - 35

Chapter 7

28For I say to you, among those born of women there is not a greater prophet than John the Baptist; but he who is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he."
29And when all the people heard Him, even the tax collectors justified God, having been baptized with the baptism of John.
30But the Pharisees and lawyers rejected the will of God for themselves, not having been baptized by him.
31And the Lord said, "To what then shall I liken the men of this generation, and what are they like?
32They are like children sitting in the marketplace and calling to one another, saying: "We played the flute for you, And you did not dance; We mourned to you, And you did not weep.'
33For John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking wine, and you say, "He has a demon.'
34The Son of Man has come eating and drinking, and you say, "Look, a glutton and a winebibber, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!'
35But wisdom is justified by all her children."
