Luke 12:17-27 (Lexham English Bible)

View In My Bible
17 And he reasoned to himself, saying, 'What should I do? For I do not have anywhere I can gather in my crops.' 18 And he said, 'I will do this: I will tear down my barns and build larger ones, and I will gather in there all my grain and possessions. 19 And I will say to my soul, "Soul, you have many possessions stored up for many years. Relax, eat, drink, celebrate!" ' 20 But God said to him, 'Fool! This night your lifea is demanded from you, and [the things] which you have prepared--whose will they be?' 21 So [is] the one who stores up treasure for himself, and who is not rich toward God!"


22 And he said to his disciples, "For this [reason] I tell you, do not be anxious for [your]b life, what you will eat, or for [your]c body, what you will wear. 23 For life is more than food, and the body [more than] clothing. 24 Consider the ravens, that they neither sow nor reap; to them there is neither storeroom nor barn, and God feeds them. How much more are you worth than the birds? 25 And which of you [by]d being anxious is able to add an houre to his life span? 26 If then you are not even able [to do] a very little thing, why are you anxious about the rest? 27 Consider the lilies, how they grow: they do not toil or spin, but I say to you, not even Solomon in all his glory was dressed like one of these.
