Luke 18:1-7

EJ2000(i) 1 ¶ And he spoke a parable unto them to this end, that it behooves us always to pray and not faint, 2 saying, There was in a city a judge who did not fear God nor regard man; 3 and there was a widow in that city, and she came unto him, saying, Defend me from my adversary. 4 And he would not for a while, but afterward he said within himself, Though I do not fear God, nor regard man, 5 yet because this widow troubles me, I will do her justice, lest by her continual coming she weary me. 6 And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge says. 7 And shall not God avenge his own elect who cry day and night unto him though he bears long regarding them?
