Luke 18:1-7

Living_Oracles(i) 1 He also showed them, by a parable, that they ought to persist in prayer, without growing weary. 2 In a certain city, said he, there was a judge, 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 For some time he refused; be afterward he argued thus with himself, Although I neither fear God, nor regard man; 5 yet, because this widow importunes me, I will judge her cause; let she come perpetually, and plague me. 6 Mark, said the Lord, what the unjust judge determined. 7 And will not God avenge his elect, who cry to him day and night? Will he linger in their cause?
