Luke 17

1And he said to his disciples, It is impossible for the stumbling-blocks not to come, but woe to him through whom they come! 2It is better for him if a donkey-powered millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were thrown into the sea, than that he should cause one of these little ones to stumble. 3Take heed to yourselves. And if thy brother should sin against thee, rebuke him, and if he repents, forgive him. 4And if he should sin against thee seven times in the day, and seven times in the day turn back, saying, I repent, thou will forgive him. 5And the apostles said to the Lord, Increase faith for us. 6And the Lord said, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard plant, ye would say to this sycamine tree, Be thou uprooted and be planted in the sea, and it would have obeyed you. 7But which of you having a bondman plowing or feeding livestock, who, when he comes in from the field, will straightaway say, After coming near, sit down? 8Will he not rather say to him, Prepare what I may dine, and having gird thyself, serve me until I eat and drink, and after these things thou will eat and drink? 9Does he have a favor for that bondman because he did the things that were commanded? I think not. 10Thus ye also, when ye did all the things that were commanded you, say, We are unprofitable bondmen, because we have done what we are obligated to do. 11And it came to pass as he went to Jerusalem, that he was passing through the middle of Samaria and Galilee. 12And as he entered into a certain village, ten leprous men who stood from afar met him. 13And they raised a voice, saying, Jesus, Master, be merciful to us. 14And when he saw them, he said to them, After departing, display yourselves to the priests. And it came to pass, during their going they were cleansed. 15And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back with a great voice glorifying God. 16And he fell upon his face beside his feet giving him thanks. And he was a Samaritan. 17And having answered, Jesus said, Were not the ten cleansed? But where are the nine? 18Were there none found who returned to give glory to God, except this foreigner? 19And he said to him, After rising, go. Thy faith has healed thee. 20And questioned by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God comes, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God does not come with observation, 21nor will they say, Lo, here! or, Lo, there! For behold, the kingdom of God is inside of you. 22And he said to the disciples, The days will come when ye will long to see one of the days of the Son of man, and ye will not see it. 23And they will say to you, Lo, here! Lo, there! Do not depart, nor pursue. 24For just as the lightning, its flashing from under the sky to under the sky, illuminates, so will the Son of man be in his day. 25But first it is necessary for him to suffer many things and be rejected from this generation. 26And just as it happened in the days of Noah, so also it will be in the days of the Son of man. 27They ate, they drank, they married, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all. 28And likewise as it happened in the days of Lot. They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built. 29But in that day Lot went out from Sodom he rained fire and brimstone from the sky, and destroyed them all. 30It will be according to these things in that day the Son of man is revealed. 31In that day, he who will be on the housetop, and his vessels in the house, let him not go down to take them up. And let him who is in the field likewise not return for the things behind. 32Remember Lot's wife. 33Whoever will seek to save his life will lose it, and whoever will lose it will keep it alive. 34I say to you, in that night there will be two in one bed. The one man will be taken, and the other man will be left. 35Two will be grinding together. The one woman will be taken, and the other woman will be left. 36This verse is not in the majority of the Greek manuscripts. 37And having answered, they say to him, Where, Lord? And he said to them, Where the body is, there the vultures will be gathered together.
