Now He was telling them a parable to show that at all times they ought to pray and not to lose heart,
saying, "In a certain city there was a judge who did not fear God and did not respect man.
"There was a widow in that city, and she kept coming to him, saying, 'Give me legal protection from my opponent.'
"For a while he was unwilling; but afterward he said to himself, 'Even though I do not fear God nor respect man,
yet because this widow bothers me, I will give her legal protection, otherwise by continually coming she will wear me out.'"
And the Lord said, "Hear what the unrighteous judge said;
now, will not God bring about justice for His elect who cry to Him day and night, and will He delay long over them?
