7 Revised Standard Version Passage

18The disciples of John told him of all these things.The Messengers from John the Baptist Lk.7.18-35 (Capernaum) | Mt.11.2-19
19And John, calling to him two of his disciples, sent them to the Lord, saying, "Are you he who is to come, or shall we look for another?" 
20And when the men had come to him, they said, "John the Baptist has sent us to you, saying, 'Are you he who is to come, or shall we look for another?'" 
21In that hour he cured many of diseases and plagues and evil spirits, and on many that were blind he bestowed sight. 
22And he answered them, "Go and tell John what you have seen and heard: the blind receive their sight, the lame walk, lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, the poor have good news preached to them.- The blind receive their sight Lk.7.22 | Mal.3.1
23And blessed is he who takes no offense at me." 
24When the messengers of John had gone, he began to speak to the crowds concerning John: "What did you go out into the wilderness to behold? A reed shaken by the wind? 
25What then did you go out to see? A man clothed in soft clothing? Behold, those who are gorgeously appareled and live in luxury are in kings' courts. 
26What then did you go out to see? A prophet? Yes, I tell you, and more than a prophet. 
27This is he of whom it is written,
'Behold, I send my messenger before thy face,
who shall prepare thy way before thee.'
 
28I tell you, among those born of women none is greater than John; yet he who is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he." 
29(When they heard this all the people and the tax collectors justified God, having been baptized with the baptism of John; 
30but the Pharisees and the lawyers rejected the purpose of God for themselves, not having been baptized by him.) 
31"To what then shall I compare the men of this generation, and what are they like? 
32They are like children sitting in the market place and calling to one another,
'We piped to you, and you did not dance;
we wailed, and you did not weep.'
 
33For John the Baptist has come eating no bread and drinking no wine; and you say, 'He has a demon.' 
34The Son of man has come eating and drinking; and you say, 'Behold, a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!' 
35Yet wisdom is justified by all her children."
