Luke 12:10-20 (English Standard Version)

View In My Bible
10 And 1everyone who speaks a word 2against the Son of Man 3will be forgiven, but the one who 4blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven. 11 5And when they 6bring you before the synagogues and 7the rulers and 8the authorities, 9do not be anxious about how you should defend yourself or what you should say, 12 10for the Holy Spirit will teach you in that very hour what you ought to say."

The Parable of the Rich Fool

13 11Someone in the crowd said to him, "Teacher, tell my brother to divide the inheritance with me." 14 But he said to him, 12"Man, 13who made me a judge or arbitrator over you?" 15 And he said to them, 14"Take care, and be on your guard against all covetousness, for one's life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions." 16 And he told them a parable, saying, 15"The land of a rich man produced plentifully, 17 and he thought to himself, 16'What shall I do, for I have nowhere to store my crops?' 18 And he said, 'I will do this: I will tear down my 17barns and build larger ones, and there I will store all my grain and my goods. 19 And I will say to my soul, Soul, you have ample goods laid up 18for many years; relax, 19eat, drink, be merry.' 20 But God said to him, 20'Fool! 21This night 22your soul is required of you, and the things you have prepared, 23whose will they be?'
