Luke 12:49-56

CEB 49 "I came to cast fire upon the earth. How I wish that it was already ablaze! NRS 49 "I came to bring fire to the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled! CEB 50 I have a baptism I must experience. How I am distressed until it's completed! NRS 50 I have a baptism with which to be baptized, and what stress I am under until it is completed! CEB 51 Do you think that I have come to bring peace to the earth? No, I tell you, I have come instead to bring division. NRS 51 Do you think that I have come to bring peace to the earth? No, I tell you, but rather division! CEB 52 From now on, a household of five will be divided—three against two and two against three. NRS 52 From now on five in one household will be divided, three against two and two against three; CEB 53 Father will square off against son and son against father; mother against daughter and daughter against mother; and mother-in-law against daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law." NRS 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." CEB 54 Jesus also said to the crowds, "When you see a cloud forming in the west, you immediately say, ‘It's going to rain.' And indeed it does. NRS 54 He also said to the crowds, "When you see a cloud rising in the west, you immediately say, "It is going to rain'; and so it happens. CEB 55 And when a south wind blows, you say, ‘A heat wave is coming.' And it does. NRS 55 And when you see the south wind blowing, you say, "There will be scorching heat'; and it happens. CEB 56 Hypocrites! You know how to interpret conditions on earth and in the sky. How is it that you don't know how to interpret the present time? NRS 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?
