Luke 17 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)
17 1 Offenses. 3 We must forgive him that trespasseth against us. 10 We are unprofitable servants. 11 Of the ten lepers. 20 Of the coming of the kingdom of heaven. 33 False Christs. 36 After what manner Christ’s coming shall be.
1 Then said he to his disciples, [a]It cannot be avoided, but that offences will come, but woe be to him by whom they come.
2 It is better for him that a great millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were cast into the sea, then that he should offend one of these little ones.
3 ¶ [b]Take heed to yourselves: if thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him: and if he repent, forgive him.
4 And though he sin against thee seven times in a day, and seven times in a day turn again to thee, saying, it repenteth me, thou shalt forgive him.
5 ¶ [c]And the Apostles said unto the Lord, Increase our faith.
6 And the Lord said, If ye had faith, as much as is [d]a grain of mustard seed, and should say unto this mulberry tree, Pluck thyself up by the roots, and plant thyself in the sea, it should even obey you.
7 ¶ [e]Who is it also of you, that having a servant plowing or feeding cattle, would say unto him by and by, when he were come from the field, Go, and sit down at table,
8 And would not rather say to him, Dress wherewith I may sup, and gird thyself, and serve me, till I have eaten and drunken, and afterward eat thou, and drink thou?
9 Doth he thank that servant, because he did that which was commanded unto him? I trow not.
10 [f]So likewise ye, when ye have done all those things, which are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants: we have done that which was our duty to do.
11 ¶ [g]And so it was when he went to Jerusalem, that he passed through the midst of Samaria, and Galilee.
12 And as he entered into a certain town, there met him ten men that were lepers, which stood afar off.
13 And they lifted up their voices and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.
14 And when he saw them, he said unto them, Go, show yourselves unto the Priests. And it came to pass, that as they went, they were cleansed.
15 Then one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice praised God,
16 And fell down on his face at his feet, and gave him thanks: and he was a Samaritan.
17 And Jesus answered, and said, Are there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine?
18 There is none found that returned to give God praise, save this stranger.
19 And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way, thy faith hath saved thee.
21 Neither shall men say, Lo here, or lo there: for behold, the kingdom of God is [j]within you.
23 [m]Then they shall say to you, Behold here, or behold there: but go not thither, neither follow them.
24 For as the lightning that lighteneth out of the one part under heaven, shineth unto the other part under heaven, so shall the Son of man be in his day.
25 But first must he suffer many things and be reproved of this generation.
26 [n]And as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be in the days of the Son of man.
27 They ate, they drank, they married wives, and gave in marriage unto the day that Noah went into the Ark: and the flood came, and destroyed them all.
28 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot: They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built.
29 But in the day that Lot went out of Sodom, it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.
30 After these examples shall it be in the day when the son of man revealed.
31 [o]At that day he that is upon the house, and his stuff in the house, let him not come down to take it out: and he that is in the field likewise, let him not turn back to that he left behind.
32 Remember Lot’s wife.
33 Whosoever will seek to save his soul, shall loose it: and whosoever shall loose it, shall [p]get it life.
34 I tell you, in that night there shall be two in one bed: the one shall be received, and the other shall be left.
35 Two women shall be grinding together, the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left.
36 Two shall be in the field: one shall be received, and another shall be left.
37 [q]And they answered, and said to him, Where, Lord? And he said unto them, Wheresoever the body is, thither shall also the eagles be gathered together.
