Luke 17 New American Standard Bible

Causing to Sin

17 1  He said to His disciples , " It is inevitable e that stumbling blocks come , but woe to him through whom they come ! 2  " It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck and he were thrown into the sea , than that he would cause one of these little ones to stumble . 3  "Be on your guard ! If your brother sins , rebuke him; and if he repents , forgive him. 4  "And if he sins against you seven times a day , and returns to you seven times , saying , 'I repent ,' forgive him."

Increase Our Faith

5  The apostles said to the Lord , "Increase our faith !" 6  And the Lord said , "If you had faith like a mustard seed , you would say to this mulberry tree , 'Be uprooted and be planted in the sea '; and it would obey you.

The Servant's Duty

7  "Which of you, having a slave plowing or tending sheep , will say to him when he has come in from the field , 'Come immediately and sit down to eat'? 8  "But will he not say to him, ' Prepare something for me to eat , and properly clothe yourself and serve me while I eat and drink ; and afterward e you may eat and drink '? 9  "He does not thank the slave because he did the things which were commanded , does he? 10  "So you too , when you do all the things which are commanded you, say , 'We are unworthy slaves ; we have done only that which we ought to have done .' "

Jesus Cleanses Ten Lepers

11  While He was on the way to Jerusalem , He was passing between e Samaria and Galilee . 12  As He entered a village , ten leprous men who stood at a distance met Him; 13  and they raised their voices , saying , "Jesus , Master , have mercy on us!" 14  When He saw them, He said to them, " Go and show yourselves to the priests ." And as they were going , they were cleansed . 15  Now one of them, when he saw that he had been healed , turned back , glorifying God with a loud voice , 16  and he fell on his face at His feet , giving thanks to Him. And he was a Samaritan . 17  Then Jesus answered and said , "Were there not ten cleansed ? But the nine -where are they? 18  "Was no one found who returned to give glory to God , except this foreigner ?" 19  And He said to him, "Stand up and go ; your faith has made you well ."

The Coming of the Kingdom

20  Now having been questioned by the Pharisees as to when the kingdom of God was coming , He answered them and said , "The kingdom of God is not coming with signs to be observed ; 21  nor will they say , 'Look , here it is!' or , 'There it is!' For behold , the kingdom of God is in your midst ." 22  And He said to the disciples , " The days will come when you will long to see one of the days of the Son of Man , and you will not see it. 23  " They will say to you, 'Look there ! Look here !' Do not go away , and do not run after them. 24  " For just like the lightning , when it flashes out of one part of the sky , shines to the other part of the sky , so will the Son of Man be in His day . 25  " But first He must suffer many things and be rejected by this generation . 26  " And just as it happened in the days of Noah , so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man : 27  they were eating , they were drinking , they were marrying , they were being given in marriage , until the day that Noah entered the ark , and the flood came and destroyed them all . 28  "It was the same as happened in the days of Lot : they were eating , they were drinking , they were buying , they were selling , they were planting , they were building ; 29  but on the day that Lot went out from Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all . 30  "It will be just the same on the day that the Son of Man is revealed . 31  "On that day , the one who is on the housetop and whose goods are in the house must not go down to take them out; and likewise the one who is in the field must not turn back e . 32  " Remember Lot's wife . 33  " Whoever e seeks to keep his life will lose it, and whoever e loses his life will preserve it. 34  "I tell you, on that night there will be two in one bed ; one will be taken and the other will be left . 35  " There will be two women grinding at the same place; one will be taken and the other will be left . 36  [" Two men will be in the field ; one will be taken and the other will be left ."] 37  And answering they said to Him, "Where , Lord ?" And He said to them, " Where the body is, there also the vultures will be gathered ."
