Common English Bible (CEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 Jesus said to his disciples, "Things that cause people to trip and fall into sin must happen, but how terrible it is for the person through whom they happen. 1 Jesus said to his disciples: "Things that cause people to sin are bound to come, but woe to that person through whom they come.
2 It would be better for them to be thrown into a lake with a large stone hung around their neck than to cause one of these little ones to trip and fall into sin. 2 It would be better for him to be thrown into the sea with a millstone tied around his neck than for him to cause one of these little ones to sin.
3 Watch yourselves! If your brother or sister sins, warn them to stop. If they change their hearts and lives, forgive them. 3 So watch yourselves. "If your brother sins, rebuke him, and if he repents, forgive him.
4 Even if someone sins against you seven times in one day and returns to you seven times and says, ‘I am changing my ways,' you must forgive that person." 4 If he sins against you seven times in a day, and seven times comes back to you and says, 'I repent,' forgive him."

7 "Would any of you say to your servant, who had just come in from the field after plowing or tending sheep, ‘Come! Sit down for dinner'? 7 "Suppose one of you had a servant plowing or looking after the sheep. Would he say to the servant when he comes in from the field, 'Come along now and sit down to eat'?
8 Wouldn't you say instead, ‘Fix my dinner. Put on the clothes of a table servant and wait on me while I eat and drink. After that, you can eat and drink'? 8 Would he not rather say, 'Prepare my supper, get yourself ready and wait on me while I eat and drink; after that you may eat and drink'?
9 You won't thank the servant because the servant did what you asked, will you? 9 Would he thank the servant because he did what he was told to do?
10 In the same way, when you have done everything required of you, you should say, ‘We servants deserve no special praise. We have only done our duty.'" 10 So you also, when you have done everything you were told to do, should say, 'We are unworthy servants; we have only done our duty.' "

20 Pharisees asked Jesus when God's kingdom was coming. He replied, "God's kingdom isn't coming with signs that are easily noticed. 20 Once, having been asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, Jesus replied, "The kingdom of God does not come with your careful observation,
21 Nor will people say, ‘Look, here it is!' or ‘There it is!' Don't you see? God's kingdom is already among you." 21 nor will people say, 'Here it is,' or 'There it is,' because the kingdom of God is within you."
