Martha and Mary
Now as they went on their way, Jesus entered a village. And a woman named b Martha c welcomed him into her house.
And she had a sister called b Mary, who d sat at the Lord's feet and listened to his teaching.
But Martha was distracted with much serving. And she went up to him and said, "Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Tell her then to help me."
But the Lord answered her, "Martha, Martha, you are e anxious and troubled about many things,
but one thing is necessary. Mary has chosen f the good portion, which will not be taken away from her."
