1. And he spake also a parable to them, that they ought always to pray, and not to grow weary: 2. Saying, There was a judge in a city, who neither feared God, nor regarded man. 3. And there was a widow in that city, who came to him, saying, Do me justice on my adversary. 4. And he refused for some time,
but afterwards said within himself, Though I neither fear God, nor regard man, 5. Yet because this widow is troublesome to me,
I will do her justice, lest by coming perpetually she weary me out.
6. And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge saith. 7. And will not God avenge his elect, who cry to him night and day, even though he forbear with respect to them?
8. I tell you that he will speedily avenge them. But when the Son of man shall come, will he find faith on the earth?
