Luke 17:1-19 American Standard Version

Causing to Sin

17 1  And he said unto his disciples, It is impossible but that occasions of stumbling should come; but woe unto him, through whom they come! 2  It 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. 3  Take heed to yourselves: if thy brother sin, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him. 4  And if he sin against thee seven times in the day, and seven times turn again to thee, saying, I repent; thou shalt forgive him.

Increase Our Faith

5  And the apostles said unto the Lord, Increase our faith. 6  And 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.

The Servant's Duty

7  But 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; 8  and will 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 drink? 9  Doth he thank the servant because he did the things that were commanded? 10  Even 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.

Jesus Cleanses Ten Lepers

11  And it came to pass, as they were on their way to Jerusalem, that he was passing along the borders of Samaria and Galilee. 12  And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that were lepers, who stood afar off: 13  and they lifted up their voices, saying, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us. 14  And 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. 15  And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, with a loud voice glorifying God; 16  and he fell upon his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan. 17  And Jesus answering said, Were not the ten cleansed? but where are the nine? 18  Were there none found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger? 19  And he said unto him, Arise, and go thy way: thy faith hath made thee whole.
