Luke 17


Jesus Teaches on Forgiveness and Obstacles

And he said to the disciples, It is inadmissible for [3not 4to come 1the 2obstacles]; but woe to him through whom they come. It would be equitable for him if a millstone of a donkey was encompassed around his neck, and he be tossed into the sea, than that he should cause [3to stumble 1one 2of these small ones]. Take heed to yourselves! And if [2should sin 3against 4you 1your brother], reproach him! And if he should repent, forgive him! And if seven times of the day he should sin against you, and seven times of the day should turn, saying, I repent, you shall forgive him.

Jesus Teaches on Belief

And [3said 1the 2apostles] to the Lord, Add to us belief! [4said 1And 2the 3Lord], If you have belief as a kernel of mustard, you would have said to this sycamine tree, Be rooted out, and be planted in the sea! and it would have obeyed you. But who of you [2a servant 1having] plowing or tending, who entering from out of the field, will say immediately, in his having arrived, Recline to eat! But will he not say to him, Prepare something! I should have supper; and girding yourself serve me! until I should have eaten and drunk, and after these things [2shall eat 3and 4drink 1you]. Shall [2favor 1he have] with that servant because he did the things being ordered to him? I think not. 10 Thus also you, whenever you should have done all the things set in order for you, say that, [3servants 2useless 1We are]; for what we ought to do we have done.

Jesus heals the Ten Lepers

11 And it came to pass in his going unto Jerusalem, and he went through the middle of Samaria and Galilee. 12 And of his entering into a certain town, there met with him ten leprous men, which stood at a distance. 13 And they lifted their voice, saying, Jesus, master, show mercy on us! 14 And beholding, he said to them, Having gone, display yourselves to the priests! And it came to pass in their going away, they were cleansed. 15 And one of them, beholding that he was healed, returned with [2voice 1a great] glorifying God, 16 and he fell upon his face by his feet giving thanks to him; and he was a Samaritan. 17 And responding Jesus said, Were there not ten cleansed; [3are the 1but 4nine 2where]? 18 Were there not found any returning to give glory to God, except this foreigner? 19 And he said to him, Having risen up, go! the belief of yours has delivered you.

The Day of the Son of Man

20 And having been asked by the Pharisees, When comes the kingdom of God? he answered them and said, [4comes not 1The 2kingdom 3of God] with observation. 21 Nor shall they say, Behold, here, or, Behold, there. For behold, the kingdom of God [2within 3you 1is]. 22 And he said to the disciples, There shall come days when you shall desire [2one 3of the 4days 5of the 6son 7of man 1to see], and you will not see it. 23 And they shall say to you, Behold, here, or, Behold, there; do not go forth nor pursue! 24 For as the lightning, the one flashing from out of the one place under heaven, [2unto 3the other place 4under 5heaven 1radiates]; so it will be also the son of man in his day. 25 But first it is necessary for him [2much 1to suffer], and to be rejected by this generation. 26 And as it happened in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the son of man. 27 They ate, they drank, they married, they gave in marriage, as far as which day Noah entered into the ark, and [3came 1the 2flood] and destroyed all. 28 In like manner also as it happened in the days of Lot; they ate, they drank, they were buying, they were selling, they were planting, they were building; 29 but in which day Lot went forth from Sodom, it rained fire and sulphur from heaven, and it destroyed all. 30 According to these things it will be in which day the son of man is revealed. 31 In that day the one who shall be upon the roof, and his items in the house, let him not go down to take them! And the one in the field, in like manner, let him not return to the things behind! 32 Remember Lot's wife! 33 Who ever should seek [2his soul 1to preserve] shall lose it; and who ever should lose it brings it forth alive. 34 I say to you, In this night there will be two upon [2bed 1one]; the one will be taken, and the other will be left. 35 Two women will be grinding together; one will be taken, and the other will be left. 36 Two men shall be in the field; the one will be taken and the other will be left. 37 And responding they say to him, Where, O Lord? And he said to them, Where the body, there [3will be gathered 1the 2eagles].
