1 He said to His disciples, "Offenses will certainly come, but woe to the one they come through! 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 him if a millstone were hung around his neck and he were thrown into the sea than for him to cause one of these little ones to stumble. 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 Be on your guard. If your brother sins, rebuke him, and if he repents, forgive him. 3 So watch yourselves. "If your brother sins, rebuke him, and if he repents, forgive him.
4 And if he sins against you seven times in a day, and comes back to you seven times, saying, 'I repent,' you must forgive him." 4 If he sins against you seven times in a day, and seven times comes back to you and says, 'I repent,' forgive him."
5 The apostles said to the Lord, "Increase our faith." 5 The apostles said to the LORD, "Increase our faith!"
6 "If you have faith the size of a mustard seed," the Lord said, "you can say to this mulberry tree, 'Be uprooted and planted in the sea,' and it will obey you. 6 He replied, "If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, 'Be uprooted and planted in the sea,' and it will obey you.
7 "Which one of you having a slave plowing or tending sheep, will say to him when he comes in from the field, 'Come at once and sit down to eat'? 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 Instead, will he not tell him, 'Prepare something for me to eat, get ready, and serve me while I eat and drink; later 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 Does he thank that slave because he did what was commanded? 9 Would he thank the servant because he did what he was told to do?
10 In the same way, when you have done all that you were commanded, you should say, 'We are good-for-nothing slaves; we've 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.' "
