Jesus Cleanses Ten Lepers

11 On the way to Jerusalem he was passing along between Samaria and Galilee. 12 And as he entered a village, he was met by ten lepers,1 who stood at a distance 13 and lifted up their voices, saying, “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.” 14 When he saw them he said to them, “Go and show yourselves to the priests.” And as they went they were cleansed. 15 Then one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, praising God with a loud voice; 16 and he fell on his face at Jesus’ feet, giving him thanks. Now he was a Samaritan. 17 Then Jesus answered, “Were not ten cleansed? Where are the nine? 18 Was no one found to return and give praise to God except this foreigner?” 19 And he said to him, “Rise and go your way; your faith has made you well.”2

     11 And it came to pass, as he went to Jerusalem, that he passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee. 12 And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that were lepers, which stood afar off: 13 And they lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us. 14 And when he saw them, he said unto them, Go shew yourselves unto the priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed. 15 And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God, 16 And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan. 17 And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine? 18 There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger. 19 And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made thee whole.(KJV)


Hymn: TLH 158 (LSB 433):
Glory be to Jesus

Hymnary.org — Organ Audio

1. Glory be to Jesus, 
Who in bitter pains 
Poured for me the life-blood 
From His sacred veins! 

2. Grace and life eternal 
In that blood I find; 
Blest be His compassion, 
Infinitely kind! 

3. Blest through endless ages 
Be the precious stream 
Which from endless torments 
Did the world redeem! 

4. Abel’s blood for vengeance 
Pleaded to the skies; 
But the blood of Jesus 
For our pardon cries. 

5. Oft as earth exulting 
Wafts its praise on high, 
Angel hosts rejoicing 
Make their glad reply. 

6. Lift we, then, our voices, 
Swell the mighty flood, 
Louder still and louder 
Praise the precious blood!
