Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:30 - saying, ‘This man began to build and was not able to finish.’

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:31 - Or what king, going out to encounter another king in war, will not sit down first and deliberate whether he is able with ten thousand to meet him who comes against him with twenty thousand?
