Luke 17:1-4 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]

  1. Luke 17:4 And if seven times in the day he shall sin against thee, and seven times in the day shall be converted to thee, saying, It repenteth me, forgive him.

Luke 17:1-4 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.

Luke 17:1-4 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.

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.
