Do All Which Jesus Commands

1Now He said to His disciples, “It is [†]inevitable that [†]stumbling blocks come, but woe to him through whom they come! 2It [†]would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck and he were thrown into the sea, than that he would cause one of these little ones to stumble. 3[†]Be on your guard! If your brother sins, rebuke him; and if he repents, forgive him. 4And if he sins against you seven times a day, and returns to you seven times, saying, ‘I repent,’ [†]forgive him.”

5And the apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith!” 6And the Lord said, “If you have faith like a mustard seed, you would say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and be planted in the sea’; and it would [†]obey you.

7“But which of you, having a slave plowing or tending sheep, will say to him when he has come in from the field, ‘Come immediately and [†]sit down to eat’? 8But will he not say to him, ‘Prepare something for me to eat, and, [†]clothing yourself properly, serve me while I eat and drink; and [†]afterward you [†]may eat and drink’? 9Is he grateful to the slave because he did the things which were commanded? 10In this way, you also, when you do all the things which are commanded of you, say, ‘We are unworthy slaves; we have done only that which we ought to have done.’”

Jesus Cleanses Ten Lepers

11And it happened that while He was on the way to Jerusalem, He was passing through Samaria and Galilee. 12And as He entered a village, ten leprous men who stood at a distance met Him. 13And they raised their voices, saying, “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!” 14When He saw them, He said to them, “Go and show yourselves to the priests.” And it happened that as they were going, they were cleansed. 15Now one of them, when he saw that he had been healed, turned back, glorifying God with a loud voice, 16and he fell on his face at His feet, giving thanks to Him. And he was a Samaritan. 17Then Jesus answered and said, “Were there not ten cleansed? But the nine—where are they? 18[†]Was there no one found who turned back to give glory to God, except this foreigner?” 19And He said to him, “Stand up and go; your faith has [†]saved you.”

20Now having been questioned by the Pharisees as to when the kingdom of God was coming, He answered them and said, “The kingdom of God is not coming with [†]signs to be observed, 21nor will they say, ‘Look, here!’ or, ‘There!’ For behold, the kingdom of God is in your midst.”

The Coming of the Son of Man

22And He said to the disciples, “The days will come when you will long to see one of the days of the Son of Man, and you will not see it. 23And they will say to you, ‘Look there! Look here!’ Do not go away, and do not run after them. 24For just like the lightning, when it flashes out of one part [†]of the sky, shines to the other part [†]of the sky, so will the Son of Man be in His day. 25But first He must suffer many things and be rejected by this generation. 26And just as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man: 27they were eating, they were drinking, they were marrying, they were being given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all. 28[†]It was the same as in the days of Lot—they were eating, they were drinking, they were buying, they were selling, they were planting, they were building; 29but on the day that Lot went out from Sodom it rained fire and [†]brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. 30It will be [†]just the same on the day that the Son of Man is revealed. 31On that day, the one who is on the housetop and whose goods are in the house must not go down to take them out, and likewise the one who is in the field must not turn back. 32Remember Lot’s wife. 33Whoever seeks to keep his [†]life will lose it, and whoever loses his life will preserve it. 34I tell you, on that night there will be two in one bed; one will be taken and the other will be left. 35There will be two women grinding grain at the same place; one will be taken and the other will be left. 36[[†]Two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other will be left.”] 37And answering they said to Him, “Where, Lord?” And He said to them, “Where the body is, there also the [†]vultures will be gathered.”
