Luke 17

17:1 And he said unto the disciples, `It is impossible for the stumbling blocks not to come, but woe [to him] through whom they come; 17:2 it is more profitable to him if a weighty millstone is put round about his neck, and he hath been cast into the sea, than that he may cause one of these little ones to stumble. 17:3 `Take heed to yourselves, and, if thy brother may sin in regard to thee, rebuke him, and if he may reform, forgive him, 17:4 and if seven times in the day he may sin against thee, and seven times in the day may turn back to thee, saying, I reform; thou shalt forgive him.' 17:5 And the apostles said to the Lord, `Add to us faith;' 17:6 and the Lord said, `If ye had faith as a grain of mustard, ye would have said to this sycamine, Be uprooted, and be planted in the sea, and it would have obeyed you. 17:7 `But, who is he of you--having a servant ploughing or feeding--who, to him having come in out of the field, will say, Having come near, recline at meat 17:8 but will not [rather] say to him, Prepare what I may sup, and having girded thyself about, minister to me, till I eat and drink, and after these things thou shalt eat and drink 17:9 Hath he favour to that servant because he did the things directed I think not. 17:10 `So also ye, when ye may have done all the things directed you, say--We are unprofitable servants, because that which we owed to do--we have done.'  17:11 And it came to pass, in his going on to Jerusalem, that he passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee, 17:12 and he entering into a certain village, there met him ten leprous men, who stood afar off, 17:13 and they lifted up the voice, saying, `Jesus, master, deal kindly with us;' 17:14 and having seen [them] , he said to them, `Having gone on, shew yourselves to the priests;' and it came to pass, in their going, they were cleansed, 17:15 and one of them having seen that he was healed did turn back, with a loud voice glorifying God, 17:16 and he fell upon [his] face at his feet, giving thanks to him, and he was a Samaritan. 17:17 And Jesus answering said, `Were not the ten cleansed, and the nine--where 17:18 There were not found who did turn back to give glory to God, except this alien;' 17:19 and he said to him, `Having risen, be going on, thy faith hath saved thee.'  17:20 And having been questioned by the Pharisees, when the reign of God doth come, he answered them, and said, `The reign of God doth not come with observation; 17:21 nor shall they say, Lo, here; or lo, there; for lo, the reign of God is within you.' 17:22 And he said unto his disciples, `Days will come, when ye shall desire to see one of the days of the Son of Man, and ye shall not behold [it] ; 17:23 and they shall say to you, Lo, here; or lo, there; ye may not go away, nor follow; 17:24 for as the lightning that is lightening out of the one [part] under heaven, to the other part under heaven doth shine, so shall be also the Son of Man in his day; 17:25 and first it behoveth him to suffer many things, and to be rejected by this generation. 17:26 `And, as it came to pass in the days of Noah, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of Man; 17:27 they were eating, they were drinking, they were marrying, they were given in marriage, till the day that Noah entered into the ark, and the deluge came, and destroyed all; 17:28 in like manner also, as it came to pass in the days of Lot; they were eating, they were drinking, they were buying, they were selling, they were planting, they were building; 17:29 and on the day Lot went forth from Sodom, He rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed all. 17:30 `According to these things it shall be, in the day the Son of Man is revealed; 17:31 in that day, he who shall be on the house top, and his vessels in the house, let him not come down to take them away; and he in the field, in like manner, let him not turn backward; 17:32 remember the wife of Lot. 17:33 Whoever may seek to save his life, shall lose it; and whoever may lose it, shall preserve it. 17:34 `I say to you, In that night, there shall be two men on one couch, the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left; 17:35 two women shall be grinding at the same place together, the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left; 17:36 two men shall be in the field, the one shall be taken, and the other left.' 17:37 And they answering say to him, `Where, sir' and he said to them, `Where the body [is] , there will the eagles be gathered together.'
