Luke 12:51-59 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
51 "1Do 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, 2father 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." 54 And He was also saying to the crowds, "3When you see a cloud rising in the west, immediately you say, 'A shower is coming,' and so it turns out. 55 "And when you see a south wind blowing, you say, 'It will be a 4hot day,' and it turns out that way. 56 "You hypocrites! 5You know how to analyze the appearance of the earth and the sky, but awhy do you not analyze this present time? 57 "And 6why do you not even on your own initiative judge what is right? 58 "For 7while you are going with your opponent to appear before the magistrate, on your way there make an effort to bsettle with him, so that he may not drag you before the judge, and the judge turn you over to the officer, and the officer throw you into prison. 59 "I say to you, you will not get out of there until you have paid the very last c8cent."
