Luke 17 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

17 And Jesus said to his disciples, It is impossible that causes of stumbling come not; but woe to that man, by whom they come. [And he said to his disciples, It is impossible that offences come not; but woe to him, by whom they come.]

It is more profitable to him, if a millstone be put about his neck, and he be cast into the sea, than that he cause to stumble one of these little [than that he offend one of these little].

Take ye heed to yourselves [Take heed to yourselves]; if thy brother hath sinned against thee, blame him; and if he do penance, forgive him.

And if seven times in the day he do sin against thee, and seven times in the day he be converted to thee, and say, It repenteth me, forgive thou him.[a]

And the apostles said to the Lord, Increase to us faith [Increase faith to us].

And the Lord said, If ye have faith as the corn of mustard seed [If ye had faith as a corn of mustard seed], ye shall say to this (syca)more tree, Be thou drawn up by the root, and be over-planted into the sea [and be thou planted over into the sea], and it shall obey to you.

But who of you hath a servant plowing, or pasturing oxen, which saith to him, when he turneth again from the field, At once go, and sit to meat;[b]

and saith not to him, Make ready, that I sup, and gird thee, and serve me, while I eat and drink, and after this thou shalt eat and drink; [and not saith to him, Make ready, that I sup, and gird thee before, and minister to me, till that I eat and drink, and after these things thou shalt eat and drink;]

whether he hath grace to that servant, for he did that that he commanded him? Nay, I guess.

10 So [also] ye, when ye have done all things that be commanded to you, say ye [say], We be unprofitable servants, we have done that that we ought to do.

11 And it was done, the while Jesus went to Jerusalem, he passed through the midst of Samaria, and Galilee.

12 And when he entered into a castle [And when he entered into some castle], ten leprous men came to meet him, which stood afar,

13 and raised their voice [and lifted up their voice], and said, Jesus, Commander, have mercy on us.

14 And as he saw them, he said [Whom, when he saw, he said], Go, show ye you to the priests. And it was done, while they went, they were cleansed.

15 And one of them, as he saw that he was cleansed, went again, magnifying God with a great voice.

16 And he fell down on the face before his feet, and did thankings [doing graces, or thankings]; and this was a Samaritan.

17 And Jesus answered, and said [Forsooth Jesus answering said], Whether ten be not cleansed, and where be the nine?

18 There is none found, that turned again, and gave glory to God, but this alien [but this alien, or stranger].

19 And he said to him, Rise up, go thou; for thy faith hath made thee safe.

20 And he was asked of the Pharisees, when the realm of God cometh. And he answered to them, and said, The realm of God cometh not with espying,

21 neither they shall say, Lo! here, or lo[!] there; for lo! the realm of God is within you.

22 And he said to his disciples, Days shall come, when ye shall desire to see one day of man's Son, and ye shall not see.

23 And they shall say to you, Lo! here, and lo! there. Do not ye go, neither follow;

24 for as lightning shining from under heaven shineth into those things [shineth on those things] that be under heaven, so shall man's Son be in his day.

25 But first it behooveth him to suffer many things, and to be reproved of this generation.

26 And as it was done in the days of Noe, so it shall be in the days of man's Son.

27 They ate and drank, wedded wives, and were given to weddings, till into the day in which Noe entered into the ship; and the great flood came, and destroyed all [and lost all].

28 Also as it was done in the days of Lot, they ate and drank, bought and sold, planted and builded;

29 but in the day that Lot went out of Sodom, the Lord rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed all [and lost all].

30 Like this thing it shall be [After this thing it shall be], in what day man's Son shall be showed.

31 In that hour he that is in the roof [In that day he that shall be in the roof], and his vessels in the house, come he not down to take them away; and he that shall be in the field [and he that is in the field], also turn not again behind.

32 Be ye mindful of the wife of Lot.

33 Whoever seeketh to make his life safe, shall lose it; and whoever loseth it, shall quicken it. [Whoever shall seek to make his life safe, shall lose it; and whoever shall lose it, shall quicken it.]

34 But I say to you [I say to you], in that night two shall be in one bed, one shall be taken, and the other [shall be] forsaken;

35 two women shall be grinding together, the one shall be taken, and the other forsaken [and the tother shall be forsaken];

36 two in a field, the one shall be taken, and the other left.

37 They answer, and say to him, Where, Lord? Which said to them, Where ever the body shall be, thither shall be gathered together also the eagles. [They answering said to him, Where Lord? Which said to them, Where ever the body shall be, also the eagles shall be gathered together thither.]

Luke 17 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

Christ teaches his disciples to avoid occasions of evil, to forgive one another, steadfastly to trust in God, and that no one should presume in his own works. He heals the ten lepers, and speaks of the latter days, and of the end of the world.

17 Then Jesus said to his disciples, It cannot be avoided but that offences will come. Nevertheless, woe be to him through whom they come. It would be better for him that a millstone were hung about his neck and that he were cast into the sea, than that he should hurt one of these little ones.

Take heed to yourselves. If your brother trespasses against you, rebuke him; and if he repents, forgive him. And even if he sins against you seven times in a day, and seven times in a day turns again to you saying, I am sorry – forgive him.

And the apostles said to the Lord, Increase our faith. And the Lord said, If you had faith like a grain of mustard seed, and were to say to this sycamine tree, Pluck yourself up by the roots and plant yourself in the sea, it would obey you.

Who among you, if he had a servant plowing or feeding sheep, would say to him when he came in from the field, Go quickly, and sit down to food? And not rather say to him, Prepare for me to sup, and gird yourself up, and serve me till I have eaten and drunk, and afterward you shall eat and drink? Does he thank that servant because he did that which was commanded of him? I think not. 10 So likewise you, when you have done all the things that are commanded of you, say, We are unprofitable servants; we have done that which was our duty to do.

11 And it so was that, as he journeyed to Jerusalem, he passed through Samaria and Galilee. 12 And as he entered into a certain town, there met him ten men that were lepers, who stood afar off, 13 and put forth their voices and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!

14 When he saw them, he said to them, Go and show yourselves to the priests. And it came to pass that as they went, they were cleansed. 15 And one of them, when he saw that he was cleansed, turned back again and with a loud voice praised God, 16 and fell down on his face at Jesus’ feet, and gave him thanks. And he was a Samaritan.

17 And Jesus answered and said, Were there not ten cleansed? But where are the other nine? 18 There are not found any that returned again to give God praise, save only this stranger. 19 And he said to the man, Arise and go your way; your faith has made you whole.

20 When he was asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God does not come with watching for it. 21 Neither may men say, See here, look there! For behold, the kingdom of God is within you.

22 And he said to the disciples, The days will come when you will desire to see one day of the Son of man, and you will not see it. 23 And they will say to you, See here, see there! Do not go after them or follow them. 24 For as the lightning that appears out of the one part of the heaven and shines to the other part of heaven, so shall the Son of man be in his days. 25 But first he must suffer many things, and be refused by this nation.

26 As it happened in the time of Noah, so shall it be in the time of the Son of man: 27 they ate, they drank, they married wives, and were married, right up to the same day that Noah went into the ark; and the flood came and destroyed them all. 28 Likewise also as it happened in the days of Lot: they ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built. 29 And even the same 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 appears.

31 At that day, let him who is on the housetop, with his stuff in the house, not come down to take it out. And likewise, let not him who is in the fields turn back again to what he left behind. 32 Remember Lot’s wife. 33 Whosoever would go about to save his life, shall lose it, and whosoever will lose his life, shall save it. 34 I tell you, in that night there will be two in one bed; the one will be received, and the other will be left. 35 Two will also be a-grinding together; the one will be received, and the other left. 36 

37 And they answered and said to him, Where Lord? And he said to them, Wherever the body is, there will the eagles resort.

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.

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.

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.

[b]Take heed to yourselves: if thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him: and if he repent, forgive him.

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.

[c]And the Apostles said unto the Lord, Increase our faith.

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.

[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,

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?

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.

20 [h]And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them, and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with [i]observation.

21 Neither shall men say, Lo here, or lo there: for behold, the kingdom of God is [j]within you.

22 [k]And he said unto the disciples, the days will come, when ye shall desire to see [l]one of the days of the Son of man, and ye shall not see it.

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.

Luke 17 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

17 Then said he unto the disciples, It is impossible but that offences will come: but woe unto him, through whom they come! It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him. And if he trespass against thee seven times in a day, and seven times in a day turn again to thee, saying, I repent; thou shalt forgive him.

And the apostles said unto the Lord, Increase our faith. And the Lord said, If ye had faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye might say unto this sycamine tree, Be thou plucked up by the root, and be thou planted in the sea; and it should obey you. But which of you, having a servant plowing or feeding cattle, will say unto him by and by, when he is come from the field, Go and sit down to meat? And will not rather say unto him, Make ready wherewith I may sup, and gird thyself, and serve me, till I have eaten and drunken; and afterward thou shalt eat and drink? Doth he thank that servant because he did the things that were commanded him? I trow not. 10 So likewise ye, when ye shall 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 And it came to pass, as he went to Jerusalem, that he passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee. 12 And as he entered into a certain village, 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 shew yourselves unto the priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed. 15 And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God, 16 and fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan. 17 And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine? 18 There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger. 19 And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made thee whole.
