Matthew 18

NAS 1 At that time the disciples came to Jesus and said, "Who then is greatest in the kingdom of heaven?" NIV 1 At that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Who, then, is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?” NAS 2 And He called a child to Himself and set him before them, NIV 2 He called a little child to him, and placed the child among them. NAS 3 and said, "Truly I say to you, unless you are converted and become like children, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven. NIV 3 And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. NAS 4 "Whoever then humbles himself as this child, he is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. NIV 4 Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. NAS 5 "And whoever receives one such child in My name receives Me; NIV 5 And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me. NAS 6 but whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it would be better for him to have a heavy millstone hung around his neck, and to be drowned in the depth of the sea. NIV 6 “If anyone causes one of these little ones—those who believe in me—to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea. NAS 7 "Woe to the world because of its stumbling blocks! For it is inevitable that stumbling blocks come; but woe to that man through whom the stumbling block comes! NIV 7 Woe to the world because of the things that cause people to stumble! Such things must come, but woe to the person through whom they come! NAS 8 "If your hand or your foot causes you to stumble, cut it off and throw it from you; it is better for you to enter life crippled or lame, than to have two hands or two feet and be cast into the eternal fire. NIV 8 If your hand or your foot causes you to stumble, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to enter life maimed or crippled than to have two hands or two feet and be thrown into eternal fire. NAS 9 "If your eye causes you to stumble, pluck it out and throw it from you. It is better for you to enter life with one eye, than to have two eyes and be cast into the fiery hell. NIV 9 And if your eye causes you to stumble, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to enter life with one eye than to have two eyes and be thrown into the fire of hell. NAS 10 "See that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that their angels in heaven continually see the face of My Father who is in heaven. NIV 10 “See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven. NAS 11 ["For the Son of Man has come to save that which was lost.] NAS 12 "What do you think? If any man has a hundred sheep, and one of them has gone astray, does he not leave the ninety-nine on the mountains and go and search for the one that is straying? NIV 12 “What do you think? If a man owns a hundred sheep, and one of them wanders away, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the hills and go to look for the one that wandered off? NAS 13 "If it turns out that he finds it, truly I say to you, he rejoices over it more than over the ninety-nine which have not gone astray. NIV 13 And if he finds it, truly I tell you, he is happier about that one sheep than about the ninety-nine that did not wander off. NAS 14 "So it is not the will of your Father who is in heaven that one of these little ones perish. NIV 14 In the same way your Father in heaven is not willing that any of these little ones should perish. NAS 15 "If your brother sins, go and show him his fault in private; if he listens to you, you have won your brother. NIV 15 “If your brother or sister sins, go and point out their fault, just between the two of you. If they listen to you, you have won them over. NAS 16 "But if he does not listen to you, take one or two more with you, so that BY THE MOUTH OF TWO OR THREE WITNESSES EVERY FACT MAY BE CONFIRMED. NIV 16 But if they will not listen, take one or two others along, so that ‘every matter may be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses.’ NAS 17 "If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church; and if he refuses to listen even to the church, let him be to you as a Gentile and a tax collector. NIV 17 If they still refuse to listen, tell it to the church; and if they refuse to listen even to the church, treat them as you would a pagan or a tax collector. NAS 18 "Truly I say to you, whatever you bind on earth shall have been bound in heaven; and whatever you loose on earth shall have been loosed in heaven. NIV 18 “Truly I tell you, whatever you bind on earth will bebound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will beloosed in heaven. NAS 19 "Again I say to you, that if two of you agree on earth about anything that they may ask, it shall be done for them by My Father who is in heaven. NIV 19 “Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. NAS 20 "For where two or three have gathered together in My name, I am there in their midst." NIV 20 For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.” NAS 21 Then Peter came and said to Him, "Lord , how often shall my brother sin against me and I forgive him? Up to seven times?" NIV 21 Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me? Up to seven times?” NAS 22 Jesus said to him, "I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven. NIV 22 Jesus answered, “I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times. NAS 23 "For this reason the kingdom of heaven may be compared to a king who wished to settle accounts with his slaves. NIV 23 “Therefore, the kingdom of heaven is like a king who wanted to settle accounts with his servants. NAS 24 "When he had begun to settle them, one who owed him ten thousand talents was brought to him. NIV 24 As he began the settlement, a man who owed him ten thousand bags of goldwas brought to him. NAS 25 "But since he did not have the means to repay, his lord commanded him to be sold, along with his wife and children and all that he had, and repayment to be made. NIV 25 Since he was not able to pay, the master ordered that he and his wife and his children and all that he had be sold to repay the debt. NAS 26 "So the slave fell to the ground and prostrated himself before him, saying, 'Have patience with me and I will repay you everything.' NIV 26 “At this the servant fell on his knees before him. ‘Be patient with me,’ he begged, ‘and I will pay back everything.’ NAS 27 "And the lord of that slave felt compassion and released him and forgave him the debt. NIV 27 The servant’s master took pity on him, canceled the debt and let him go. NAS 28 "But that slave went out and found one of his fellow slaves who owed him a hundred denarii; and he seized him and began to choke him, saying, 'Pay back what you owe.' NIV 28 “But when that servant went out, he found one of his fellow servants who owed him a hundred silver coins.He grabbed him and began to choke him. ‘Pay back what you owe me!’ he demanded. NAS 29 "So his fellow slave fell to the ground and began to plead with him, saying, 'Have patience with me and I will repay you.' NIV 29 “His fellow servant fell to his knees and begged him, ‘Be patient with me, and I will pay it back.’ NAS 30 "But he was unwilling and went and threw him in prison until he should pay back what was owed. NIV 30 “But he refused. Instead, he went off and had the man thrown into prison until he could pay the debt. NAS 31 "So when his fellow slaves saw what had happened, they were deeply grieved and came and reported to their lord all that had happened. NIV 31 When the other servants saw what had happened, they were outraged and went and told their master everything that had happened. NAS 32 "Then summoning him, his lord said to him, 'You wicked slave, I forgave you all that debt because you pleaded with me. NIV 32 “Then the master called the servant in. ‘You wicked servant,’ he said, ‘I canceled all that debt of yours because you begged me to. NAS 33 'Should you not also have had mercy on your fellow slave, in the same way that I had mercy on you?' NIV 33 Shouldn’t you have had mercy on your fellow servant just as I had on you?’ NAS 34 "And his lord , moved with anger, handed him over to the torturers until he should repay all that was owed him. NIV 34 In anger his master handed him over to the jailers to be tortured, until he should pay back all he owed. NAS 35 "My heavenly Father will also do the same to you, if each of you does not forgive his brother from your heart." NIV 35 “This is how my heavenly Father will treat each of you unless you forgive your brother or sister from your heart.”
