But wisdom is justified of her children.
§ 40. Jesus's Reflections in consequence of his Appeal to his mighty Works. 20 Then began he to upbraid the cities wherein most of his mighty works were done, because they re pented not.
21 Woe unto thee, Chorazin! woe unto thee, Bethsaida! for if the mighty works which were done in you, had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth
22 But I say unto It shall be more you, tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the day of judgment than for you.

33 For John the Baptist came, neither eating bread, nor drinking wine;

34 The Son of man is come eating anddrinking; and ye say Behold,a gluttonousman,

35 But wisdom is justified of all her children.
23 And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted unto heaven, shalt be brought down to hell: for if the mighty works which have been done in thee, had been done in Sodom, it would have remained unto this day.
24 But I say unto you, That it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment than for thee.
25 At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven andearth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.
26 Even so, Father, for so it seemed good in thy sight.
27 All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him.
28 Come unto me, all ye that labour, and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

641. A Woman who had been a Sinner, is publicly reassured of forgiveness by Jesus sitting at meat with a Pharisee.
36 And one of the Pharisees desired him that he would eat with him. And he went into the Pharisee's house, and sat down to meat.
37 And behold, a woman in the city, which was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus sat at meat in the Pharisee's, house, brought an alabaster-box of ointment,
38 And stood at his feet, behind him, weeping, and began to wash his feet with tears, and did wipe them with the hairs of her head, and kissed his feet, and anointed them with the ointment.
39 Now when the Pharisee, which had bidden him, saw it, he spake within himself, saying, This man if he were a prophet, would have known who, and what manner of woman this is that toucheth him: for she is a sinner.
40 And Jesus answering, said unto him, Simon, I have somewhat to say unto thee. And he saith, Master, say on.
41 There was a certain creditor, which had two debtors: the one owed five hundred pence, and the other fifty.
42 And when they had nothing to pay, he frankly forgave them both. Tell me therefore which of them will love him most?
43 Simon answered and said, I suppose that he to whom he forgave most. And he said unto him, Thou hast rightly judged.
44 And he turned to the woman, and said unto Simon, Seest thou this woman? I entered into thine house, thou gavest me no water for my feet: but she hath washed my feet with tears, and wiped them with the hairs of her head,
45 Thou gavest me no kiss: but this woman, since the time I came in, hath not ceased to kiss my feet.
46 My head with oil thou didst not anoint: but this woman hath anointed my feet with ointment.
47 Wherefore I say unto thee, Her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much: but to whom little is forgiven, the same loveth little.
48 And he said unto her, Thy sins are forgiven.
49 And they that sat at meat with him, began to say within themselves, Who is this that forgiveth sins also?
50 And he said to the woman, Thy faith hath saved thee: go in peace.
