9:57 As 1  they were walking 2  along the road, someone said to him, “I will follow you wherever you go.” 3  9:58 Jesus said to him, “Foxes have dens and the birds in the sky 4  have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head.” 5  9:59 Jesus 6  said to another, “Follow me.” But he replied, 7 Lord, first let me go and bury my father.” 9:60 But Jesus 8  said to him, “Let the dead bury their own dead, 9  but as for you, go and proclaim the kingdom of God.” 10  9:61 Yet 11  another said, “I will follow you, Lord, but first let me say goodbye to my family.” 12  9:62 Jesus 13  said to him, “No one who puts his 14  hand to the plow and looks back 15  is fit for the kingdom of God.” 16
