Luke, Chapter 17

17:1 And he said to his disciples, It is impossible but that occasions of stumbling should come; but woe to him, through whom they come!
17:2 It were well for him if a millstone were put around his neck, and he were thrown into the sea, rather than that he should cause one of these little ones to stumble.
17:3 Take heed to yourselves: if your brother sins, rebuke him; and if he repents, forgive him.
17:4 And if he sins against you seven times in the day, and seven times turn again to you, saying, I repent; you will forgive him.
17:5 And the apostles said to the Lord, Increase our faith.
17:6 And the Lord said, If you+ had faith as a grain of mustard seed, you+ would say to this sycamine tree, Be rooted up, and be planted in the sea; and it would obey you+.
17:7 But who is there of you+, having a slave plowing or shepherding, that will say to him, when he has come in from the field, Come right away and sit down to meat;
17:8 and will not rather say to him, Prepare [that] with which I may sup, and gird yourself, and serve me, until I have eaten and drank; and afterward you will eat and drink?
17:9 Does he thank the slave because he did the things that were commanded?
17:10 Even so you+ also, when you+ will have done all the things that are commanded you+, say, We are unprofitable slaves; we have done that which it was our duty to do.
17:11 And it came to pass, as they were on the way to Jerusalem, that he was passing through between the borders of Samaria and Galilee.
17:12 And as he entered into a certain village, ten men who were lepers met him, who stood far off:
17:13 and they lifted up their voices, saying, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.
17:14 And when he saw them, he said to them, Go and show yourselves to the priests. And it came to pass, as they went, they were cleansed.
17:15 And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, with a loud voice glorifying God;
17:16 and he fell on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan.
17:17 And Jesus answering said, Were not the ten cleansed? But where are the nine?
17:18 Were there none found that returned to give glory to God, except this stranger?
17:19 And he said to him, Arise, and go your way: your faith has made you whole.
17:20 And being asked by the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God comes, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God does not come with observation:
17:21 neither will they say, Look, here! Or, There! For look, the kingdom of God is inside you+.
17:22 And he said to the disciples, The days will come, when you+ will desire to see one of the days of the Son of Man, and you+ will not see it.
17:23 And they will say to you+, Look, there! Or, Look, here! Don't go away, nor follow after [them]:
17:24 for as the lightning, when it flashes out of the one part under the heaven, shines to the other part under heaven; so will the Son of Man be in his day.
17:25 But first he must suffer many things and be rejected of this generation.
17:26 And as it came to pass in the days of Noah, even so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man.
17:27 They 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.
17:28 Likewise even as it came to pass in the days of Lot; they ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built;
17:29 but in the day that Lot went out from Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all:
17:30 after the same manner it will be in the day that the Son of Man is revealed.
17:31 In that day, he who will be on the housetop, and his goods in the house, let him not go down to take them away: and let him who is in the field likewise not return back.
17:32 Remember Lot's wife.
17:33 Whoever will seek to gain his soul will lose it: but whoever will lose [his soul] will preserve it.
17:34 I say to you+, In that night there will be two men on one bed; the one will be taken, and the other will be left.
17:35 There will be two women grinding together; the one will be taken, and the other will be left.
17:37 And answering they say to him, Where, Lord? And he said to them, Where the body [is], there will the eagles also be gathered together.
