As they were going along the road, someone said to him, â€œI 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€ To another he said, â€œFollow me.â€ But he said, â€œLord, first let me go and bury my father.â€ But Jesus said to him, â€œLet the dead bury their own dead; but as for you, go and proclaim the kingdom of God.â€ Another said, â€œI will follow you, Lord; but let me first say farewell to those at my home.â€ Jesus said to him, â€œNo one who puts a hand to the plow and looks back is fit for the kingdom of God.â€
