Or, for your convenience I have typed the verses below from the
New Living Testament (NLT).

Please prepare my heart Jehovah.
Thank you for insight.
For Familiar Passages. Read Anew!
Read the passage from Last to First!
Sometimes we have read a passage of Scripture so many times we can't see it with new eyes.
How can we change the passage without changing the meaning?
What would we see if we take a passage and begin with the last verse and read the verses from for example:
Read Chapter 3:10-1.
57. As they were walking along, someone said to Jesus, "I will follow you wherever you go."
58. But Jesus replied, "Foxes have dens to live in, and birds have nests, but the Son of Man has no place even to lay his head."
59. He said to another person, "Come, follow me."
The man agreed, but he said, "Lord, first let me return home and bury my father."
60. But Jesus told him, "Let the spiritually dead bury their own dead! Your duty is to go and preach about the Kingdom of God."
61. Another said, "Yes, Lord, I will follow you, but first let me say good-bye to my family."
62. But Jesus told him, "Anyone who puts a hand to the plow and then looks back is not fit for the Kingdom of God."
Luke 9:57-62 NLT
