Temptations and Trespasses
(Matthew 18:6–9; Mark 9:42–48)

1THEN he said to his disciples, It is impossible that offences should not come; but wo to him through whom they come! 2It would be advantageous for him, if a milstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea, rather than offend one of these little ones. 3Take heed to yourselves: if thy brother sin against thee, reprove him; and if he repent, forgive him. 4And if seven times in the day he sin against thee, and seven times in the day return to thee, saying, I repent; thou shalt forgive him.

The Power of Faith
(Matthew 17:19–20)

5And the disciples said unto the Lord, increase our faith. 6And the Lord said, If ye had faith as a grain of mustard, ye might say to that sycamore-tree, Be rooted up, and be planted in the sea; and it would obey you.

7But which of you, having a servant plowing or keeping sheep, when he cometh from the field, will say immediately, Come, sit down at table? 8And will he not rather say, Prepare for me to sup, and gird thyself, and wait upon me, till I eat and drink; and after that, thou shalt eat and drink thyself? 9Doth he hold it as a favour from that servant, that he did the things which were ordered him? I think not. 10So also ye, when ye have done all things commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants: for we have but done what was our duty to do.

The Ten Lepers

11And it came to pass, as he was going towards Jerusalem, he passed also through the midst of Samaria and Galilee. 12And as he was entering a certain village, ten leprous men met him, who stood at a distance: 13and they lift up their voice, saying, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us! 14And looking towards them, he said, Go, shew yourselves to the priests. And it came to pass, that as they were on the road, they were made clean. 15Then one of them, seeing that he was cured, returned, and with a loud voice gave glory to God, 16and fell prostrate at his feet giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan. 17Then Jesus spake and said, were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine? 18There are none found returning to give glory to God, but this alien. 19And he said to him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath saved thee.

The Coming of the Kingdom

20And being asked by one of the Pharisees, When cometh the kingdom of God? he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: 21neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.

22Then said he to the disciples, The days will come when ye shall eagerly desire to see one of the days of the Son of man, and shall not see it. 23And they will say to you, Lo here! and lo there! go not after them, nor follow them. 24For as the lightning flashing from one quarter under heaven, shineth to another quarter under heaven; so shall the Son of man also be at his day. 25But he must first suffer many things, and be rejected by this generation. 26And as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it also be in the days of the coming of the Son of man. 27They did eat, they drank, they married, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and the deluge came, and destroyed them all. 28Even so, likewise, it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; 29but the day Lot went out of Sodom, it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. 30Just so will it be in the day when the Son of man shall be revealed. 31In that day, let not the man who is upon the roof, and his goods in the house, go down to carry them away: and he that is in the field, in like manner, let him not return for any things behind him. 32Remember Lot?s wife. 33Whosoever seeketh to preserve his life shall lose it; and whosoever would lose it, shall preserve it. 34I tell you, in that night two shall be in the same bed; the one shall be seized, and the other dismissed. Two women shall be grinding together: the one shall be seized, and the other dismissed. 35Two shall be in the field; the one shall be seized, and the other dismissed. 36TEXT OMITTED 37And they answering, said to him, Where, Lord? And he said, Wherever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.
