17 1And he said unto his disciples, It is impossible but that
occasions of stumbling should come; but woe unto him, through whom they come!
2It were well for him if a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he
were thrown into the sea, rather than that he should cause one of these
little ones to stumble.
3Take heed to yourselves: if thy brother sin,
rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him.
4And if he sin against thee
seven times in the day, and seven times turn again to thee, saying, I repent;
thou shalt forgive him.
5And the apostles said unto the Lord, Increase
6And the Lord said, If ye had faith as a grain of mustard
seed, ye would say unto this sycamine tree, Be thou rooted up, and be thou
planted in the sea; and it would obey you.
7But who is there of you,
having a servant plowing or keeping sheep, that will say unto him, when he is
come in from the field, Come straightway and sit down to meat;
not rather say unto him, Make ready wherewith I may sup, and gird thyself,
and serve me, till I have eaten and drunken; and afterward thou shalt eat and
9Doth he thank the servant because he did the things that were
10Even so ye also, when ye shall have done all the things that
are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants; we have done that which
it was our duty to do.
11And it came to pass, as they were on their way
to Jerusalem, that he was passing along the borders of Samaria and Galilee.
12And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that
were lepers, who stood afar off:
13and they lifted up their voices,
saying, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.
14And when he saw them, he said
unto them, Go and show yourselves unto the priests. And it came to pass, as
they went, they were cleansed.
15And one of them, when he saw that he was
healed, turned back, with a loud voice glorifying God;
16and he fell upon
his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan.
Jesus answering said, Were not the ten cleansed? but where are the nine?
18Were there none found that returned to give glory to God, save this
19And he said unto him, Arise, and go thy way: thy faith hath
made thee whole.
20And being asked by the Pharisees, when the kingdom of
God cometh, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with
21neither shall they say, Lo, here! or, There! for lo, the
kingdom of God is within you.
22And he said unto the disciples, The days
will come, when ye shall desire to see one of the days of the Son of man, and
ye shall not see it.
23And they shall say to you, Lo, there! Lo, here! go
not away, nor follow after them:
24for as the lightning, when it
lighteneth out of the one part under the heaven, shineth unto the other part
under heaven; so shall the Son of man be in his day.
25But first must he
suffer many things and be rejected of this generation.
26And as it came
to pass in the days of Noah, even so shall it be also in the days of the Son
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.
28Likewise even as it came to pass in the days of
Lot; they ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they
29but in the day that Lot went out from Sodom it rained fire and
brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all:
30after the same manner
shall it be in the day that the Son of man is revealed.
31In that day, he
that shall be on the housetop, and his goods in the house, let him not go
down to take them away: and let him that is in the field likewise not return
32Remember Lot's wife.
33Whosoever shall seek to gain his life
shall lose it: but whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it.
34I say unto you, In that night there shall be two men on one bed; the
one shall be taken, and the other shall be left.
35There shall be two
women grinding together; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left.
36There shall be two men in the field; the one shall be taken, and
the other shall be left.
37And they answering say unto him, Where,
Lord? And he said unto them, Where the body is, thither will the
eagles also be gathered together.
