1 Yeshua said to his talmidim, "It is impossible that snares will not be set. But woe to the person who sets them!
2 It would be to his advantage that he have a millstone hung around his neck and he be thrown into the sea, rather than that he ensnare one of these little ones.
3 Watch yourselves! If your brother sins, rebuke him; and if he repents, forgive him.
4 Also, if seven times in one day he sins against you, and seven times he comes to you and says, `I repent,' you are to forgive him."
5 The emissaries said to the Lord, "Increase our trust."
6 The Lord replied, "If you had trust as tiny as a mustard seed, you could say to this fig tree, `Be uprooted and replanted in the sea!' and it would obey you.
7 If one of you has a slave tending the sheep or plowing, when he comes back from the field, will you say to him, `Come along now, sit down and eat'?
8 No, you'll say, `Get my supper ready, dress for work, and serve me until I have finished eating and drinking; after that, you may eat and drink.'
9 Does he thank the slave because he did what he was told to do? No!
10 It's the same with you -- when you have done everything you were told to do, you should be saying, `We're just ordinary slaves, we have only done our duty.'"
