To another he said, Follow me. But he said, Lord, let me first go and bury my father.
And Jesus said to him, Leave the dead to bury their own dead. But as for you, go and proclaim the kingdom of God.
Yet another said, I will follow you, Lord, but let me first say farewell to those at my home.
Jesus said to him, No one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back is fit for the kingdom of God.
