Luke 12:43-53 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
43 "Blessed is that 1slave whom his amaster 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 bwill 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 2receive many lashes, 48 but the one who did not 3know it, and committed deeds worthy of ca flogging, will receive but few. 4From 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 dhave come to cast fire upon the earth; and ehow I wish it were already kindled! 50 "But I have a 5baptism to fundergo, and how distressed I am until it is accomplished! 51 "6Do 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. 53 "They will be divided, 7father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law against daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law."
