Luke 17:20-37 Darby’s Translation

The Coming of the Kingdom

20  And having been asked by the Pharisees, When is the kingdom of God coming? he answered them and said, The kingdom of God does not come with observation; 21  nor shall they say, Lo here, or, Lo there; for behold, the kingdom of God is in the midst of you. 22  And he said to the disciples, Days are coming, when ye shall desire to see one of the days of the Son of man, and shall not see [it]. 23  And they will say to you, Lo here, or Lo there; go not, nor follow [them]. 24  For as the lightning shines which lightens from [one end] under heaven to [the other end] under heaven, thus shall the Son of man be in his day. 25  But first he must suffer many things and be rejected of this generation. 26  And as it took place in the days of Noe, thus also shall it be in the days of the Son of man: 27  they ate, they drank, they married, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came and destroyed all [of them]; 28  and in like manner as took place in the days of Lot: they ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; 29  but on the day that Lot went out from Sodom, it rained fire and sulphur from heaven, and destroyed all [of them]: 30  after this [manner] shall it be in the day that the Son of man is revealed. 31  In that day, he who shall be on the housetop, and his stuff in the house, let him not go down to take it away; and he that is in the field, let him likewise not return back. 32  Remember the wife of Lot. 33  Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it, and whosoever shall lose it shall preserve it. 34  I say to you, In that night there shall be two [men] upon one bed; one shall be seized and the other shall be let go. 35  Two [women] shall be grinding together; the one shall be seized and the other shall be let go. 36  [Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be seized and the other let go.] 37  And answering they say to him, Where, Lord? And he said to them, Where the body [is], there the eagles will be gathered together.
