Luke 17 Disciples’ Literal New Testament (DLNT)
Woe To The One Who Causes Others To Fall. Rebuke Sin In Your Brother. Forgive
17 And He said to His disciples, “It is impossible that the causes-of-falling should not[a] come. Nevertheless, woe to the one through whom they come. 2 It would be better for him if a mill’s stone were lying-around his neck and he had been[b] thrown-off into the sea, than that he should cause one of these[c] little ones to fall. 3 Take heed to yourselves— If your brother sins, rebuke him. And if he repents, forgive him. 4 And if he sins against you seven times in the day, and returns to you seven times saying ‘I repent’, forgive him”.
The Apostles Ask For More Faith. The Smallest Amount Is Enough
5 The apostles said to the Lord, “Increase faith for us”. 6 And the Lord said, “If you have faith like a seed[d] of a mustard-plant, you would say to this mulberry-tree, ‘Be uprooted and be planted in the sea’, and it would have obeyed you. 7 And who from-among you is there who, having a slave plowing or shepherding, will say to him having come in from the field, ‘Immediately having come-to the table, fall back [to eat]!’? 8 But will he not say to him, ‘Prepare something I may have-for-dinner. And having girded-yourself, be serving me until I eat and drink. And after these things, you will eat and drink’? 9 He does not have gratitude[e] for the slave because he did the things having been commanded, does he? 10 So also you, when you do all the things having been commanded to you, be saying that ‘We are unprofitable[f] slaves. We have done what we were obligated to do’”.
Jesus Heals Ten Lepers. One Returns To Give Thanks
11 And it came about during the proceeding to Jerusalem that He was going through the midst of Samaria and Galilee. 12 And while He was entering into a certain village, ten leprous men met Him, who stood at-a-distance. 13 And they lifted their voice, saying, “Jesus, Master, have-mercy-on us!” 14 And having seen them, He said to them, “Having gone, show yourselves to the priests”. And it came about during their going that they were cleansed. 15 And one of them, having seen that he was healed, returned glorifying God with a loud voice. 16 And he fell on his face at His feet while giving-thanks to Him. And he was a Samaritan. 17 And having responded, Jesus said, “Were not ten cleansed? But where are the nine? 18 Were none found having returned to give glory to God except this foreigner?” 19 And He said to him, “Having arisen, go. Your faith has restored you”.
Jesus Is Asked When The Kingdom Is Coming. The Kingdom Is Within You
20 And having been asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God is coming, He responded to them and said, “The kingdom of God is not coming with observation[g], 21 nor will they say, ‘Behold— here it is’, or, ‘There it is’. For behold— the kingdom of God is within[h] you”.
The Coming of The Son Will Be Like Lightning
22 And He said to the disciples, “Days will come when you will desire to see one of the days of the Son of Man, and you will not see it. 23 And they will say to you, ‘Behold— there He is’, or, ‘Behold— here He is’. Do not go, nor pursue them. 24 For just like the lightning flashing out of the one part under heaven shines[i] to the other part under heaven, so will the Son of Man be in His day. 25 But first He must suffer many things and be rejected by this generation.
The Coming of The Son Will Be Like The Days of Noah And Lot
26 “And as it happened in the days of Noah [in Gen 6-7], so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man— 27 they were eating, drinking, marrying, being given-in-marriage, until which day[j] Noah entered into the ark and the flood came and destroyed everyone. 28 Likewise, just as it happened in the days of Lot [in Gen 19]— they were eating, drinking, buying, selling, planting, building. 29 But on the day Lot departed from Sodom, it rained fire and sulphur from heaven and destroyed everyone. 30 It will be[k] the same way on the day the Son of Man is revealed. 31 On that day, let he who will be on the housetop and his things in the house not go down to take them. And let the one in a field likewise not turn-back to the things behind. 32 Remember Lot’s wife. 33 Whoever seeks to preserve his life will lose it. But whoever loses it will keep it alive. 34 I say to you, on this night there will be two people[l] on one bed— the one will be taken[m], and the other will be left. 35 There will be two women grinding at the same place— the one will be taken, and the other will be left. 36 [n] 37 And having responded, they say to Him, “Where, Lord?” And the One said to them, “Where[o] the body is, there also[p] the vultures will be gathered-together”.
