Luke 17
Literal Emphasis Translation Par ▾ 
1And He said to His disciples, It is impossible for the stumbling blocks not to come, however woe to him through whom they come! 2It is better for him if a stone of a mill is hung around his neck and he is thrown into the seas, than that he should cause these little ones to stumble. 3Take heed to yourselves: If your brother should sin, censure him; and if he should repent, remit (latin-dimitte-release) him. 4And if he should sin against (unto) you seven times in a day, and should return to you seven times, saying, I repent, you will remit him.

5And the apostles said to the Lord, Add faith to us! 6And the Lord said, If you have faith like as a grain of mustard, you could say to this mulberry tree (greek-sykamino, latin-arbori moro-mulberry tree), Be uprooted and be plants in the sea and it would comply with you.

7However which of you having a servant plowing or shepherding having come in from out of the field will say to him directly, Having come recline? 8But will he not say to him, Prepare what I might dine on and having girded yourself about, serve me, until I eat and drink; and after these things will you eat and drink? 9Is he not thankful to the servant, because he did the things having been commanded? 10Thus you also, when you might have done all the things having been commanded you, say, We are unneeded (useless) servants, we have done that which we were obligated to do.

11And it happened in the going up unto Jerusalem, He passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee. 12And on His entering into a certain village, ten leprous men met Him, who stood afar off. 13And they lifted up their voice, saying, Jesus. Master-in-charge, have mercy on us. 14And having seen them, He said to them, Go, show yourselves to the priests. And it happened in going to them, they were cleansed. 15And one of them having seen that he was healed (iathe) turned back with a great voice; glorifying God, 16and he fell upon his face beside His feet, giving thanks to Him; and he was a Samaritan. 17And answering, Jesus said, Were not ten cleansed? However where are the nine? 18There was none found having returned to give glory to God, except this one of another race. 19And He said to him, Rise up, go forth; your faith has saved you!

20And having been asked by the Pharisees, When is the kingdom of God coming? He answered them and said, The kingdom of God does not come with careful observation (watching like a guard); 21Nor will they say, Behold here or there; for behold, the kingdom of God is inside (within, among) you (you is plural).

22And He said to the disciples, Days will come when you will passionately long to see one of the days of the Son of Man and you will not see it. 23And they will say to you, Behold there; or Behold here. Do not go after nor pursue (aggressively chase). 24For just as lightning flashing shines from out of the [one end] under heaven unto the [other end] under heaven, thus will be the Son of Man is His day. 25However it is first necessary for Him to suffer many things and to be rejected by (away from) this generation. 26And just as it happened in the days of Noah, thus will it also be in the days of the Son of Man. 27They were eating, they were drinking, they were marrying, they were being given in marriage, until that day Noah entered into the ark and the flood came and destroyed all. 28Similarly, just as it happened in the days of Lot; they were eating, they were drinking, they were buying, they were selling, they were planting, they were building; 29And in that day Lot went out away from Sodom, it rained fire and sulphur (brimstone- known for its purifying power, latin-sulphur) from heaven and destroyed all. 30According to them will it be in that day when the Son of Man is revealed. 31In that there day, he who will be upon the housetop and his goods in the house, do not let him go down to take them away; and the one in the field, likewise do not let him return unto the things behind. 32Remember the wife of Lot. 33Whoever might seek to preserve (fully acquire) his life (soul) will lose (destroy) it; whoever will lose (destroy) it will preserve it alive. 34I say to you, In that night there will be two upon one bed (mat, couch); the one will be taken and the other will be left alone. 35There will be two women grinding upon the same [place]; the one will be taken, and the other will be left alone. 36{Two will be in the field; the one will we taken, and the other will be left alone.} 37And answering, they say to Him, Where, Lord? And He said to them, Where the body is there also the vultures (birds of prey, eagles) will be gather together upon.
