Luke 17

NLT 1 One day Jesus said to his disciples, "There will always be temptations to sin, but how terrible it will be for the person who does the tempting. NIV 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. NLT 2 It would be better to be thrown into the sea with a large millstone tied around the neck than to face the punishment in store for harming one of these little ones. NIV 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. NLT 3 I am warning you! If another believer sins, rebuke him; then if he repents, forgive him. NIV 3 So watch yourselves. "If your brother sins, rebuke him, and if he repents, forgive him. NLT 4 Even if he wrongs you seven times a day and each time turns again and asks forgiveness, forgive him." NIV 4 If he sins against you seven times in a day, and seven times comes back to you and says, 'I repent,' forgive him." NLT 5 One day the apostles said to the Lord, "We need more faith; tell us how to get it." NIV 5 The apostles said to the LORD, "Increase our faith!" NLT 6 "Even if you had faith as small as a mustard seed," the Lord answered, "you could say to this mulberry tree, 'May God uproot you and throw you into the sea,' and it would obey you!" NIV 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. NLT 7 "When a servant comes in from plowing or taking care of sheep, he doesn't just sit down and eat. NIV 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'? NLT 8 He must first prepare his master's meal and serve him his supper before eating his own. NIV 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'? NLT 9 And the servant is not even thanked, because he is merely doing what he is supposed to do. NIV 9 Would he thank the servant because he did what he was told to do? NLT 10 In the same way, when you obey me you should say, 'We are not worthy of praise. We are servants who have simply done our duty.'" NIV 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.' " NLT 11 As Jesus continued on toward Jerusalem, he reached the border between Galilee and Samaria. NIV 11 Now on his way to Jerusalem, Jesus traveled along the border between Samaria and Galilee. NLT 12 As he entered a village there, ten lepers stood at a distance, NIV 12 As he was going into a village, ten men who had leprosy met him. They stood at a distance NLT 13 crying out, "Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!" NIV 13 and called out in a loud voice, "Jesus, Master, have pity on us!" NLT 14 He looked at them and said, "Go show yourselves to the priests." And as they went, their leprosy disappeared. NIV 14 When he saw them, he said, "Go, show yourselves to the priests." And as they went, they were cleansed. NLT 15 One of them, when he saw that he was healed, came back to Jesus, shouting, "Praise God, I'm healed!" NIV 15 One of them, when he saw he was healed, came back, praising God in a loud voice. NLT 16 He fell face down on the ground at Jesus' feet, thanking him for what he had done. This man was a Samaritan. NIV 16 He threw himself at Jesus' feet and thanked him--and he was a Samaritan. NLT 17 Jesus asked, "Didn't I heal ten men? Where are the other nine? NIV 17 Jesus asked, "Were not all ten cleansed? Where are the other nine? NLT 18 Does only this foreigner return to give glory to God?" NIV 18 Was no one found to return and give praise to God except this foreigner?" NLT 19 And Jesus said to the man, "Stand up and go. Your faith has made you well." NIV 19 Then he said to him, "Rise and go; your faith has made you well." NLT 20 One day the Pharisees asked Jesus, "When will the Kingdom of God come?" Jesus replied, "The Kingdom of God isn't ushered in with visible signs. NIV 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, NLT 21 You won't be able to say, 'Here it is!' or 'It's over there!' For the Kingdom of God is among you. " NIV 21 nor will people say, 'Here it is,' or 'There it is,' because the kingdom of God is within you." NLT 22 Later he talked again about this with his disciples. "The time is coming when you will long to share in the days of the Son of Man, but you won't be able to," he said. NIV 22 Then he said to his disciples, "The time is coming when you will long to see one of the days of the Son of Man, but you will not see it. NLT 23 "Reports will reach you that the Son of Man has returned and that he is in this place or that. Don't believe such reports or go out to look for him. NIV 23 Men will tell you, 'There he is!' or 'Here he is!' Do not go running off after them. NLT 24 For when the Son of Man returns, you will know it beyond all doubt. It will be as evident as the lightning that flashes across the sky. NIV 24 For the Son of Man in his day will be like the lightning, which flashes and lights up the sky from one end to the other. NLT 25 But first the Son of Man must suffer terribly and be rejected by this generation." NIV 25 But first he must suffer many things and be rejected by this generation. NLT 26 "When the Son of Man returns, the world will be like the people were in Noah's day. NIV 26 "Just as it was in the days of Noah, so also will it be in the days of the Son of Man. NLT 27 In those days before the flood, the people enjoyed banquets and parties and weddings right up to the time Noah entered his boat and the flood came to destroy them all." NIV 27 People were eating, drinking, marrying and being given in marriage up to the day Noah entered the ark. Then the flood came and destroyed them all. NLT 28 "And the world will be as it was in the days of Lot. People went about their daily business -- eating and drinking, buying and selling, farming and building -- NIV 28 "It was the same in the days of Lot. People were eating and drinking, buying and selling, planting and building. NLT 29 until the morning Lot left Sodom. Then fire and burning sulfur rained down from heaven and destroyed them all. NIV 29 But the day Lot left Sodom, fire and sulfur rained down from heaven and destroyed them all. NLT 30 Yes, it will be 'business as usual' right up to the hour when the Son of Man returns. NIV 30 "It will be just like this on the day the Son of Man is revealed. NLT 31 On that day a person outside the house must not go into the house to pack. A person in the field must not return to town. NIV 31 On that day no one who is on the roof of his house, with his goods inside, should go down to get them. Likewise, no one in the field should go back for anything. NLT 32 Remember what happened to Lot's wife! NIV 32 Remember Lot's wife! NLT 33 Whoever clings to this life will lose it, and whoever loses this life will save it. NIV 33 Whoever tries to keep his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life will preserve it. NLT 34 That night two people will be asleep in one bed; one will be taken away, and the other will be left. NIV 34 I tell you, on that night two people will be in one bed; one will be taken and the other left. NLT 35 Two women will be grinding flour together at the mill; one will be taken, the other left. " NIV 35 Two women will be grinding grain together; one will be taken and the other left. " NLT 36 NLT 37 "Lord, where will this happen?" the disciples asked. Jesus replied, "Just as the gathering of vultures shows there is a carcass nearby, so these signs indicate that the end is near." NIV 37 "Where, LORD?" they asked. He replied, "Where there is a dead body, there the vultures will gather."
