Temptations and Trespasses
(Matthew 18:7-9; Mark 9:42-50)
1And he said to his disciples, It cannot be but that offences come, but woe to him by whom they come!
2It would be more profitable for him if a millstone were hanged about his neck and he cast into the sea, than that he should be a snare to one of these little ones.
3Take heed to yourselves: if thy brother should sin, rebuke him; and if he should repent, forgive him.
4And if he should sin against thee seven times in the day, and seven times should return to thee, saying, I repent, thou shalt forgive him.
The Power of Faith
(Matthew 17:14-21; Mark 9:14-29; Luke 9:37-42)
5And the apostles said to the Lord, Give more faith to us.
6But the Lord said, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye had said to this sycamine tree, Be thou rooted up, and be thou planted in the sea, and it would have obeyed you.
7But which of you is there who, having a bondman ploughing or shepherding, when he comes in out of the field, will say, Come and lie down immediately to table?
8But will he not say to him, Prepare what I shall sup on, and gird thyself and serve me that I may eat and drink; and after that thou shalt eat and drink?
9Is he thankful to the bondman because he has done what was ordered? I judge not.
10Thus ye also, when ye shall have done all things that have been ordered you, say, We are unprofitable bondmen; we have done what it was our duty to do.
Jesus Heals Ten Lepers
(2 Kings 5:1-14)
11And it came to pass as he was going up to Jerusalem, that he passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee.
12And as he entered into a certain village ten leprous men met him, who stood afar off.
13And they lifted up their voice saying, Jesus, Master, have compassion on us.
14And seeing them he said to them, Go, shew yourselves to the priests. And it came to pass as they were going they were cleansed.
15And one of them, seeing that he was cured, turned back, glorifying God with a loud voice,
16and fell on his face at his feet giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan.
17And Jesus answering said, Were not the ten cleansed? but the nine, where are they?
18There have not been found to return and give glory to God save this stranger.
19And he said to him, Rise up and go thy way: thy faith has made thee well.
The Coming of the Kingdom
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 observation;
21nor shall they say, Lo here, or, Lo there; for behold, the kingdom of God is in the midst of you.
22And he said to the disciples, Days are coming, when ye shall 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, or Lo there; go not, nor follow them.
24For as the lightning shines which lightens from one end under heaven to the other end under heaven, thus shall the Son of man be in his day.
25But first he must suffer many things and be rejected of this generation.
26And as it took place in the days of Noe, thus also shall it be in the days of the Son of man:
27they ate, they drank, they married, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came and destroyed all of them;
28and in like manner as took place in the days of Lot: they ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;
29but on the day that Lot went out from Sodom, it rained fire and sulphur from heaven, and destroyed all of them:
30after this manner shall it be in the day that the Son of man is revealed.
31In that day, he who shall be on the housetop, and his stuff in the house, let him not go down to take it away; and he that is in the field, let him likewise not return back.
32Remember the wife of Lot.
33Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it, and whosoever shall lose it shall preserve it.
34I say to you, In that night there shall be two men upon one bed; one shall be seized and the other shall be let go.
35Two women shall be grinding together; the one shall be seized and the other shall be let go.
36Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be seized and the other let go.
37And answering they say to him, Where, Lord? And he said to them, Where the body is, there the eagles will be gathered together.
