Luke 12:42-52 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
42 And 1the Lord said, "2Who then is the faithful and sensible 3steward, whom his master will put in charge of his aservants, to give them their rations at the proper time? 43 "Blessed is that 4slave whom his bmaster finds so doing when he comes. 44 "Truly I say to you that he will put him in charge of all his possessions. 45 "But if that slave says in his heart, 'My master cwill be a long time in coming,' and begins to beat the slaves , both men and women, and to eat and drink and get drunk; 46 the master of that slave will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he does not know, and will cut him in pieces, and assign him a place with the unbelievers. 47 "And that slave who knew his master's will and did not get ready or act in accord with his will, will 5receive many lashes, 48 but the one who did not 6know it, and committed deeds worthy of da flogging, will receive but few. 7From everyone who has been given much, much will be required; and to whom they entrusted much, of him they will ask all the more.

Christ Divides Men

49 "I ehave come to cast fire upon the earth; and fhow I wish it were already kindled! 50 "But I have a 8baptism to gundergo, and how distressed I am until it is accomplished! 51 "9Do you suppose that I came to grant peace on earth? I tell you, no, but rather division; 52 for from now on five members in one household will be divided, three against two and two against three.
