Luke 17

And Jesus said to his disciples: It cannot be, but that offences will come: but woe to him, by whom they come. Better for him were it, if a millstone were suspended to his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should cause one of these little ones to stumble. Take heed to yourselves. If thy brother transgress, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him. And if he shall offend against thee seven times in a day, and, seven times in a day, shall turn himself to thee, and say, I repent; forgive him. And the Legates said to our Lord: Increase our faith. He said to them: If ye had faith like a grain of mustard seed, ye might say to this mulberry-tree, Be thou torn up by the roots, and be thou planted in the sea; and it would obey you. Which of you, having a servant driving a yoke of oxen, or tending sheep, will say to him when he cometh from the field, Pass on at once, and recline for supper? But he will say to him: Prepare for me what I may sup upon, and gird thy loins and serve me, until I have eaten and drunken; and afterwards thou shalt eat and drink. Hath he thanks for him, because the servant did what was commanded him? I think not. 10 So also ye, when ye have done all the things commanded you, say: We are unprofitable servants, for we have done only what we were obligated to do. 11 And it occurred as Jesus advanced towards Jerusalem, that he passed among the Samaritans into Galilee. 12 And when he drew near to enter a certain village, there met him ten leprous men; and they stood at a distance, 13 and raised their voice, and said: Our Rabbi, Jesus, have compassion upon us. 14 And when he had looked upon them, he said to them: Go, show yourselves to the priests. And as they were going, they were cleansed. 15 And one of them, when he saw that he was cleansed, returned, and with a loud voice, glorified God. 16 And he fell on his face, at the feet of Jesus, and thanked him. And he was a Samaritan. 17 And Jesus answered, and said: Were they not ten who were cleansed? Where are the nine? 18 Have they so gone as not to come and give glory to God; except this one, who is of another nation? 19 And he said to him; Arise, and go: thy faith hath given thee life. 20 And as some of the Pharisees asked him, When the kingdom of God would come; he answered, and said to them: The kingdom of God will not come with observables. 21 And they will not say: Behold, here it is! or, Behold, it is there! For lo, the kingdom of God is within you 22 And he said to his 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 them. 23 And if they shall say to you: Lo, here he is! or, Lo, there he is! go not forth. 24 For, as the lightning darteth from the heavens, and illuminateth all beneath the heavens; so will the Son of man be, in his day. 25 But, previously, he is to suffer many things, and to be rejected by this generation. 26 And as it was in the days of Noah, so will it be in the days of the Son of man. 27 They ate and drank, they took wives and were given to husbands, until the day that Noah entered the ark; and the flood came, and destroyed every one. 28 And again, as it was in the days of Lot; they ate and drank, bought and sold, planted and built. 29 But in the day that Lot went out of Sodom, the Lord rained fire and sulphur from heaven, and destroyed them all. 30 Thus will it be, in the day when the Son of man shall be revealed. 31 In that day, let him that is on the house-top, and his goods in the house, not come down to take them: and let him that is in the field, not return after what is behind him. 32 Remember Lot's wife. 33 He that desireth to preserve his life, will lose it; and he that will lose his life, shall preserve it. 34 I tell you, that, in that night, two will be in one bed; one will be taken, and the other left. 35 And two females will be grinding together; one will be taken, and the other left. 36 Two men will be in the field; one will be taken, and the other left. 37 They answered, and said to him: Whither, our Lord? He said to them: Where the body is, there will the eagles assemble themselves.
