17:1 And he said to his disciples: It is impossible that offenses come not; but alas for him through whom they come:
2 it were better for him that an upper millstone were hung about his neck and he thrown into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.
3 Take heed to yourselves. If thy brother sin, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him.
4 And if he sin against thee seven times in a day, and seven times turn to thee, saying: I repent, thou shalt forgive him.
5 And the apostles said to the Lord: Increase our faith.
6 But the Lord said: If you have faith as a grain of mustard, you might say to this sycamine tree: Be uprooted and be planted in the sea, and it would obey you.
7 But which of you in having a servant plowing or feeding a flock, will say to him when he comes from the field: Come immediately and recline at table?
8 But will he not say to him: Make ready my supper, and gird thyself and serve me till I eat and drink, and after this thou shalt eat and drink?
9 Does he thank the servant because he did the things that were commanded?
10 So also you, when you shall have done all things that are commanded you, say that we are unprofitable servants; we have done what we ought to have done.
11 And it came to pass as he journeyed to Jerusalem, he also went through the midst of Samaria and Galilee.
12 And as he entered a certain village there met him ten leprous men, who stood afar off;
13 and they lifted up their voices, saying: Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.
14 And seeing, he said to them: Go, show yourselves to the priests. And it came to pass as they went they were cleansed.
15 And one of them, seeing that he was healed, returned, with a loud voice glorifying God;
16 and fell on his face at his feet, giving him thanks; and he was a Samaritan.
17 But Jesus answered and said: Were not the ten cleansed? Where are the nine?
18 Were there not found returning to give glory to God but this one of another race?
19 And he said to him: Arise and go: thy faith has saved thee.
20 And having been asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, he answered them and said: The kingdom of God comes not with observation;
21 neither shall they say: Lo, here or there; for behold, the kingdom of God is among you.
22 But he said to his disciples: 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: Lo here, lo there: go not after them nor follow them.
24 For as the lightning flashing out from one place under heaven shines to the other place under heaven, so shall the Son of man be in his day.
25 But first must he 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 were eating, they were drinking, they were marrying, they were giving in marriage till the day on which Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed all.
28 Likewise as it was in the days of Lot: they were eating, they were drinking, they were buying, they were selling, they were planting, they were building;
29 but on the day in which Lot went out of Sodom, there rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed all.
30 So shall it be in the day in which the Son of man is revealed.
31 In that day he that shall be on the housetop, and his goods in the house, let him not come down to take them away; and he that is in the field let him likewise not turn back.
32 Remember Lot’s wife.
33 Whoever shall seek to gain his life shall lose it: and whoever shall lose it shall save it alive.
34 I say to you, on that night there shall be two men in one bed: one shall be taken and the other left:
35 there shall be two women grinding together: the one shall be taken, but the other left.
37 And they answer and say to him: Where, Lord? And he said to them: Where the body is, there also will the eagles be gathered together.
