Luke 17:22-37 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

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 17:22-37 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

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 17:22-37 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

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

23 [c]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 [d]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 [e]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 [f]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 [g]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 17:22-37 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

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 out of the 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 of this generation.

26 And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. 27 They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. 28 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; 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 which shall be upon the housetop, and his stuff in the house, let him not come down to take it 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.
