Jesus spoke a parable to them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;
There was a judge in a city, who did not fear God nor regard man:
There was a widow in that city; and she came to him.
The widow (to the judge): Avenge me of my adversary.
The judge would not for a while: but afterward he said within himself, Though I do not fear God, nor regard man; yet because this widow troubles me, I will avenge her, lest she wearies me by her continual coming.
Hear what the unjust judge says. And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry to him day and night, though he bear long with them? I tell you that he will avenge them speedily.
Nevertheless when the Son of man comes, shall he find faith on the earth?
