Interpreting the Present Time

(Matthew 16:1-4; Mark 8:11-13)

NIVESVNASBKJVHCSB
54He said to the crowd: "When you see a cloud rising in the west, immediately you say, 'It's going to rain,' and it does.54He also said to the crowds, “When you see a cloud rising in the west, you say at once, ‘A shower is coming.’ And so it happens.54And He was also saying to the crowds, "When you see a cloud rising in the west, immediately you say, 'A shower is coming,' and so it turns out.54And he said also to the people, When ye see a cloud rise out of the west, straightway ye say, There cometh a shower; and so it is.54He also said to the crowds: "When you see a cloud rising in the west, right away you say, A storm is coming,' and so it does.
55And when the south wind blows, you say, 'It's going to be hot,' and it is.55And when you see the south wind blowing, you say, ‘There will be scorching heat,’ and it happens.55"And when you see a south wind blowing, you say, 'It will be a hot day,' and it turns out that way.55And when ye see the south wind blow, ye say, There will be heat; and it cometh to pass.55And when the south wind is blowing, you say, It's going to be a scorcher!' and it is.
56Hypocrites! You know how to interpret the appearance of the earth and the sky. How is it that you don't know how to interpret this present time?56You hypocrites! You know how to interpret the appearance of earth and sky, but why do you not know how to interpret the present time?56"You hypocrites! You know how to analyze the appearance of the earth and the sky, but why do you not analyze this present time?56Ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky and of the earth; but how is it that ye do not discern this time?56Hypocrites! You know how to interpret the appearance of the earth and the sky, but why don't you know how to interpret this time?

Reconciling with Your Adversary

(Matthew 5:21-26)

NIVESVNASBKJVHCSB
57"Why don't you judge for yourselves what is right?57“And why do you not judge for yourselves what is right?57"And why do you not even on your own initiative judge what is right?57Yea, and why even of yourselves judge ye not what is right?57"Why don't you judge for yourselves what is right?
58As you are going with your adversary to the magistrate, try hard to be reconciled on the way, or your adversary may drag you off to the judge, and the judge turn you over to the officer, and the officer throw you into prison.58As you go with your accuser before the magistrate, make an effort to settle with him on the way, lest he drag you to the judge, and the judge hand you over to the officer, and the officer put you in prison.58"For while you are going with your opponent to appear before the magistrate, on your way there make an effort to settle with him, so that he may not drag you before the judge, and the judge turn you over to the officer, and the officer throw you into prison.58When thou goest with thine adversary to the magistrate, as thou art in the way, give diligence that thou mayest be delivered from him; lest he hale thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and the officer cast thee into prison.58As you are going with your adversary to the ruler, make an effort to settle with him on the way. Then he won't drag you before the judge, the judge hand you over to the bailiff, and the bailiff throw you into prison.
59I tell you, you will not get out until you have paid the last penny."59I tell you, you will never get out until you have paid the very last penny.”59"I say to you, you will not get out of there until you have paid the very last cent."59I tell thee, thou shalt not depart thence, till thou hast paid the very last mite.59I tell you, you will never get out of there until you have paid the last cent."
