"Then Jesus told them a parable about their need to pray always."
(Luke 18:1)

Nineteenth Sunday after Pentecost

The Parable of the Persistent Widow

Luke 18:1 Then Jesus told them a parable about their need to pray always and not to lose heart.
Luke 18:2 He said, "In a certain city there was a judge who neither feared God nor had respect for people.
Luke 18:3 In that city there was a widow who kept coming to him and saying, 'Grant me justice against my opponent.'
Luke 18:4 For a while he refused; but later he said to himself, 'Though I have no fear of God and no respect for anyone,
Luke 18:5 yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will grant her justice, so that she may not wear me out by continually coming.'"

Luke 18:6 And the Lord said, "Listen to what the unjust judge says.
Luke 18:7 And will not God grant justice to his chosen ones who cry to him day and night? Will he delay long in helping them?
Luke 18:8 I tell you, he will quickly grant justice to them. And yet, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?"

NSRV & Believer's Study Bible (BSB) Notes

[Luke 18:1] The judge does not care for man, but in contrast, God does care for man. The judge is "unrighteous" because he lacks an adequate sense of justice. God has no such deficiency.

[Luke 18:8] "Will He really find faith on the earth?" underscores the concern of Jesus that the disciples not be shaken in their faith and confidence in Him.
