Now when Jesus saw great crowds around him, he gave orders to go over to the other side. A scribe then approached and said, â€œTeacher, I will follow you wherever you go.â€ And Jesus said to him, â€œFoxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests; but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay his head.â€ Another of his disciples said to him, â€œLord, first let me go and bury my father.â€ But Jesus said to him, â€œFollow me, and let the dead bury their own dead.â€
