17:1 Then he said to the disciples, It is impossible but that
causes of sin will come: but woe [to him] by whom they come!
17:2 It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about
his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should cause
one of these little ones to fall into sin.
17:3 Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother shall trespass
against thee, rebuke him; and if he shall repent forgive him.
17:4 And if he shall trespass against thee seven times in a day,
and seven times in a day shall turn again to thee, saying, I
repent; thou shalt forgive him.
17:5 And the apostles said to the Lord, Increase our faith.
17:6 And the Lord said, If ye had faith as a grain of
mustard-seed, ye might say to this sycamine-tree, Be thou
plucked up by the root, and be thou planted in the sea; and it
would obey you.
17:7 But which of you having a servant plowing, or feeding
cattle, will say to him immediately, when he is come from the
field, Go and sit down to eat?
17:8 And will not rather say to him, Make ready wherewith I may
sup, and gird thyself, and serve me, till I have eaten and
drank; and afterward thou shalt eat and drink?
17:9 Doth he thank that servant, because he did the things that
were commanded him? I suppose not.
17:10 So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all the things
which are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants: we
have done that which it was our duty to do.
17:11 And it came to pass, as he went to Jerusalem, that he
passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee.
17:12 And as he entered into a certain village, there met him
ten men that were lepers, who stood at a distance.
17:13 And they lifted up [their] voices, and said, Jesus,
Master, have mercy on us.
17:14 And when he saw [them], he said to them, Go, show
yourselves to the priests. And it came to pass, that as they
were going, they were cleansed.
17:15 And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned
back, and with a loud voice glorified God,
17:16 And fell down on [his] face at his feet, giving him
thanks: and he was a Samaritan.
17:17 And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but
where [are] the nine?
17:18 There are not found returning to give glory to God, save
17:19 And he said to him, Arise, depart: thy faith hath made
17:20 And when he was asked by the Pharisees, when the kingdom
of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of
God cometh not with observation.
17:21 Neither will they say, Lo here! or lo there! for behold,
the kingdom of God is within you.
17:22 And he said to his disciples, The days will come, when ye
will desire to see one of the days of the son of man, and ye
shall not see [it].
17:23 And they will say to you, See here; or, see there: go not
after [them], nor follow them.
17:24 For as the lightning that lighteneth from the one [part]
under heaven, shineth to the other [part] under heaven; so
shall also the Son of man be in his day.
17:25 But first he must suffer many things, and be rejected by
17:26 And as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be also in
the days of the Son of man.
17:27 They ate, they drank, they married wives, they were given
in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark; and
the flood came, and destroyed them all.
17:28 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot: they ate, they
drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built;
17:29 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom, it rained
fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed [them] all:
17:30 Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is
17:31 In that day, he who shall be upon the house-top, and his
furniture in the house, let him not come down to take it away:
and he that is in the field, let him likewise not return back.
17:32 Remember Lot's wife.
17:33 Whoever shall seek to save his life, shall lose it; and
whoever shall lose his life, shall preserve it.
17:34 I tell you, in that night there will be two [men] in one
bed; the one will be taken, and the other will be left.
17:35 Two [women] will be grinding together; the one will be
taken, and the other left.
17:36 Two [men] will be in the field; the one will be taken, and
the other left.
17:37 And they answered and said to him, Where Lord? And he said
to them, Wherever the body [is], thither will the eagles be
