Luke 12:49-53 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

49 I came to send fire into the earth, and what will I, but that it be kindled?

50 And I have to be baptized with a baptism, and how am I constrained, till that it be perfectly done [till it be perfectly done]?

51 Ween ye [Guess ye], that I came to give peace into [the] earth? Nay, I say to you, but parting.

52 For from this time there shall be five parted in one house; three shall be parted against twain, and twain shall be parted against three;[a]

53 the father against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the husband's mother against the son's wife, and the son's wife against her husband's mother.

Luke 12:49-53 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

49 I have come to send fire on earth. And what is my desire, but that it were already kindled? 50 But I must be baptized with a baptism – and how I am pained till it be ended! 51 Do you suppose that I have come to send peace on earth? I tell you no, but rather division. 52 For from henceforth there will be five in one house, divided three against two, and two against three. 53 The father will be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law, and the daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law.
