New Revised Standard (NRS) New International Version (NIV)
1 Jesus said to his disciples, "Occasions for stumbling are bound to come, but woe to anyone by whom they come! 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 you if a millstone were hung around your neck and you were thrown into the sea than for you 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 another disciple sins, you must rebuke the offender, and if there is repentance, you must forgive. 3 So watch yourselves. "If your brother sins, rebuke him, and if he repents, forgive him.
4 And if the same person sins against you seven times a day, and turns back to you seven times and says, "I repent,' you must forgive." 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 The Lord replied, "If you had faith the size of a mustard seed, you could say to this mulberry tree, "Be uprooted and planted in the sea,' and it would 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 "Who among you would say to your slave who has just come in from plowing or tending sheep in the field, "Come here at once and take your place at the table'? 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 Would you not rather say to him, "Prepare supper for me, put on your apron and serve me while I eat and drink; later you may 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 Do you thank the slave for doing what was commanded? 9 Would he thank the servant because he did what he was told to do?
10 So you also, when you have done all that you were ordered to do, say, "We are worthless slaves; we have done only what we ought to have done!' " 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.' "
