He also said to the crowds, 1"When you see 2a cloud rising in the west, you say at once, 'A shower is coming.' And so it happens.55And 3when you see the south wind blowing, you say, 'There will be 4scorching heat,' and it happens.56You hypocrites! 5You know how to interpret the appearance of earth and sky, but why do you not know how to interpret the present time?
57"And why 6do you not judge 7for yourselves what is right?588As 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.59I tell you, 9you will never get out until you have paid the very last 10penny."a
