1 AND he said to his disciples, It is inevitable that offenses should come; but woe to him by whom they come; 2 it would be profitable for him if a millstone was placed around his neck, and he was cast into the sea, rather than that he should offend one of these little ones. 3 Take heed to yourselves; if your brother sins, reprove him; and if he changes his mind, forgive him; 4 and if he sins against you seven times in a day, and turn seven times, saying, I change my mind, you shall forgive him.
5 And the apostles said to the Lord, Increase our faith.
6 And the Lord said, If you had a faith like a mustard seed, you would say to this sycamore tree, Be taken up by the roots and planted in the sea, and it would obey you.
7 But which of you having a servant plowing, or keeping sheep, will say to him when he comes in from the field, Come immediately and sit down? 8 but will he not say to him, Prepare something that I may take supper, and gird yourself and wait on me till I eat and drink, and after that do you eat and drink? 9 Does he thank the servant because he did the things commanded him? 10 So also you, when you have done all things commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants; what we owed the doing of; we have done.
11 And he was going to Jerusalem, and he passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee. 12 And coming to a certain village, ten lepers met him, who stood afar off. 13 And they lifted up their voice saying, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.
14 And seeing them, he said, Go and show yourselves to the priests. And as they were going they were cleansed.
15 And one of them seeing that he was cured, returned, glorifying God with a loud voice, 16 and fell on his face at his feet and thanked him. And he was a Samaritan.
17 And Jesus answered and said to him, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine? 18 There are not found returning to give glory to God any but this stranger. 19 And he said to him, Arise and go; your faith has cured you.
20 And being asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God comes, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God comes not with observation; 21 neither shall they say, Behold here! or, there! for behold, the kingdom of God is within you.
22 And he said to the disciples, The days will come when you shall desire to see one of the days of the Son of man, and shall not see it. 23 And they shall say to you, Behold there! behold here! go not away, nor follow them. 24 For as the lightning flashing from one part under heaven shines to another part under heaven, so shall the Son of man be in his day. 25 But first he must suffer many things, and be rejected by this generation.
26 And as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. 27 They eat, they drank, they married, they were married, till the day that Noah entered into the ark, and the flood came and destroyed all. 28 In like manner also as it was in the days of Lot; they eat, drank, bought, sold, planted, built; 29 but on the day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and sulphur from heaven, and destroyed all; 30 so shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed. 31 In that day let not him that shall be on the house, and his furniture in the house, come down to take it away; and in like manner let not him in the field turn back for things which are behind; 32 remember Lot's wife. 33 Whoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whoever shall lose shall save it. 34 I tell you, on that night two shall be on one bed; one shall be taken and the other left; 35 two shall be grinding together; one shall be taken and the other left. 36 (Added verse not retained in Sawyer)
37 And they answered and said to him, Where, Lord? And he said to them, Where the body is, there will the eagles be gathered together.
