Luke 17:11-18:14 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
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 who were lepers, who 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 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 none 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.”
20 And when the Pharisees had demanded of Him when the Kingdom of God should come, He answered them and said, “The Kingdom of God cometh not with outward show.
21 Neither shall they say, ‘Lo, it is here!’ or ‘Lo, it is there!’ For behold, the Kingdom of God is within you.”
22 And He said unto the disciples, “The days will come when ye shall desire to see one of the days of the Son of Man, and ye shall not see it.
23 And they shall say to you, ‘See, here!’ or ‘See, there!’ Go not after them, nor follow them.
24 For as the lightning that lighteneth one part under heaven shineth unto the other part under heaven, so shall also the Son of Man be in His day.
25 But first must He suffer many things and be rejected by this generation.
26 And as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of Man:
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.
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 the same day that Lot went out of Sodom, it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all.
30 “Even thus shall it be in the Day when the Son of Man is revealed.
31 In that Day, he that shall be upon the housetop, and his goods in the house, let him not come down to take them away. And he that is in the field, let him likewise not return back.
32 Remember Lot’s wife.
33 Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it, and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it.
34 I tell you, in that night there shall be two men in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left.
35 Two women shall be grinding together; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
36 Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.”
37 And they answered and said unto Him, “Where, Lord?” And He said unto them, “Wheresoever the body is, thither will the eagles be gathered together.”
18 And He spoke a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray and not to faint,
2 saying, “There was in a city a judge who feared not God, neither regarded man.
3 And there was a widow in that city, and she came unto him, saying, ‘Avenge me on mine adversary.’
4 And for a while he would not, but afterward he said within himself, ‘Though I fear not God nor regard man,
5 yet because this widow troubleth me I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me.’”
6 And the Lord said, “Hear what the unjust judge saith.
7 And shall not God avenge His own elect, who cry day and night unto Him, though He bear long with them?
8 I tell you that He will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of Man cometh, shall He find faith on the earth?”
9 And He spoke this parable unto certain ones who trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others:
10 “Two men went up into the temple to pray, the one a Pharisee and the other a publican.
11 The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, ‘God, I thank Thee that I am not as other men are: extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican.
12 I fast twice in the week; I give tithes of all that I possess.’
13 And the publican, standing afar off, would not so much as lift up his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, ‘God, be merciful to me a sinner!’
14 I tell you, this man went down to his house justified, rather than the other; for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased, and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.”
