Matthew 8:18-22

Matthew 8:18–22 (ASV 1901)

18Now when Jesus saw great multitudes about him, he gave commandment to depart unto the other side. 19And there came a scribe, and said unto him, Teacher, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest. 20And Jesus saith unto him, The foxes have holes, and the birds of the heaven have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head. 21And another of the disciples said unto him, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father. 22But Jesus saith unto him, Follow me; and leave the dead to bury their own dead.
