Luke 12:49-59

ESV 49 "I came to cast fire on the earth, and would that it were already kindled! MSG 49 "I've come to start a fire on this earth - how I wish it were blazing right now! ESV 50 I have a baptism to be baptized with, and how great is my distress until it is accomplished! MSG 50 I've come to change everything, turn everything rightside up - how I long for it to be finished! ESV 51 Do you think that I have come to give peace on earth? No, I tell you, but rather division. MSG 51 Do you think I came to smooth things over and make everything nice? Not so. I've come to disrupt and confront! ESV 52 For from now on in one house there will be five divided, three against two and two against three. MSG 52 From now on, when you find five in a house, it will be - Three against two, and two against three; ESV 53 They will be divided, father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law." MSG 53 Father against son, and son against father; Mother against daughter, and daughter against mother; Mother-in-law against bride, and bride against mother-in-law." ESV 54 He also said to the crowds, "When you see a cloud rising in the west, you say at once, 'A shower is coming.' And so it happens. MSG 54 Then he turned to the crowd: "When you see clouds coming in from the west, you say, 'Storm's coming' - and you're right. ESV 55 And when you see the south wind blowing, you say, 'There will be scorching heat,' and it happens. MSG 55 And when the wind comes out of the south, you say, 'This'll be a hot one' - and you're right. ESV 56 You hypocrites! You know how to interpret the appearance of earth and sky, but why do you not know how to interpret the present time? MSG 56 Frauds! You know how to tell a change in the weather, so don't tell me you can't tell a change in the season, the God-season we're in right now. ESV 57 "And why do you not judge for yourselves what is right? MSG 57 "You don't have to be a genius to understand these things. Just use your common sense, ESV 58 As you go with your accuser before the magistrate, make an effort to settle with him on the way, lest he drag you to the judge, and the judge hand you over to the officer, and the officer put you in prison. MSG 58 the kind you'd use if, while being taken to court, you decided to settle up with your accuser on the way, knowing that if the case went to the judge you'd probably go to jail ESV 59 I tell you, you will never get out until you have paid the very last penny." MSG 59 and pay every last penny of the fine. That's the kind of decision I'm asking you to make."
