1He said to his disciples, 'Causes of fal ing are sure to come, but alas for the one through whom theyoccur! 2It would be better for such a person to be thrown into the sea with a mil stone round the neck than tobe the downfal of a single one of these little ones. 3Keep watch on yourselves! 'If your brother does something wrong, rebuke him and, if he is sorry,forgive him. 4And if he wrongs you seven times a day and seven times comes back to you and says, "I am sorry,"you must forgive him.' 5The apostles said to the Lord, 'Increase our faith.' 6The Lord replied, 'If you had faith like a mustard seed you could say to this mulberry tree, "Be uprootedand planted in the sea," and it would obey you. 7'Which of you, with a servant ploughing or minding sheep, would say to him when he returned from thefields, "Come and have your meal at once"? 8Would he not be more likely to say, "Get my supper ready; fasten your belt and wait on me while I eatand drink. You yourself can eat and drink afterwards"? 9Must he be grateful to the servant for doing what he was told? 10So with you: when you have done al you have been told to do, say, "We are useless servants: wehave done no more than our duty." ' 11Now it happened that on the way to Jerusalem he was travel ing in the borderlands of Samaria andGalilee. 12As he entered one of the villages, ten men suffering from a virulent skin-disease came to meet him.They stood some way off 13and cal ed to him, 'Jesus! Master! Take pity on us.' 14When he saw them he said, 'Go and show yourselves to the priests.' Now as they were going awaythey were cleansed. 15Finding himself cured, one of them turned back praising God at the top of his voice 16and threw himself prostrate at the feet of Jesus and thanked him. The man was a Samaritan. 17This led Jesus to say, 'Were not al ten made clean? The other nine, where are they? 18It seems that no one has come back to give praise to God, except this foreigner.' 19And he said to the man, 'Stand up and go on your way. Your faith has saved you.' 20Asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God was to come, he gave them this answer, 'Thecoming of the kingdom of God does not admit of observation 21and there will be no one to say, "Look, it is here! Look, it is there!" For look, the kingdom of God isamong you.' 22He said to the disciples, 'A time wil come when you wil long to see one of the days of the Son ofman and wil not see it. 23They will say to you, "Look, it is there!" or, "Look, it is here!" Make no move; do not set off in pursuit; 24for as the lightning flashing from one part of heaven lights up the other, so wil be the Son of manwhen his Day comes. 25But first he is destined to suffer grievously and be rejected by this generation. 26'As it was in Noah's day, so wil it also be in the days of the Son of man. 27People were eating and drinking, marrying wives and husbands, right up to the day Noah went intothe ark, and the Flood came and destroyed them all. 28It wil be the same as it was in Lot's day: people were eating and drinking, buying and selling, plantingand building, 29but the day Lot left Sodom, it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and it destroyed them all. 30It wil be the same when the day comes for the Son of man to be revealed. 31'When that Day comes, no one on the housetop, with his possessions in the house, must come downto col ect them, nor must anyone in the fields turn back. 32Remember Lot's wife. 33Anyone who tries to preserve his life wil lose it; and anyone who loses it wil keep it safe. 34I tel you, on that night, when two are in one bed, one wil be taken, the other left; 35when two women are grinding corn together, one wil be taken, the other left.' 3637The disciples spoke up and asked, 'Where, Lord?' He said, 'Where the body is, there too will thevultures gather.'
