Luke 17

Coverdale(i) 1 He sayde vnto his disciples: It is vnpossible that offences shulde not come: but wo vnto him by whom they come: 2 It were better for him, that a mylstone were hanged aboute his neck, and he cast in to the see, then that he shulde offende one of these litle ones. 3 Take hede to youre selues. Yf thy brother trespace agaynst the, rebuke him: 4 and yf he amende, forgeue him. And though he synne agaynst the seuen tymes in a daye, and come seuen tymes in a daye to ye agayne, and saye: It repenteth me, forgeue him. 5 And the Apostles sayde vnto ye LORDE: Increace oure faith. 6 The LORDE sayde: Yf ye haue faith as a grayne of mustarde sede, and saye vnto this Molbery tre: Plucke thy self vp by the rotes, and plate thy self in the see, it shalbe obediet vnto you. 7 Which of you is it, that hath a seruaunt (which ploweth, or fedeth the catell) wha he commeth home from ye felde, that he wil saye vnto him: Go quyckly, and syt the downe to meate? 8 Is it not thus? that he sayeth vnto him: Make ready, that I maye suppe, gyrde vp thyself, and serue me, tyll I haue eaten and dronken, afterwarde shalt thou eate and drynke also. 9 Thanketh he the same seruaunt also, because he dyd that was commaunded him? I trowe not. 10 So likewyse ye, wha ye haue done all that is comaunded you, saye: We are vnprofitable seruauntes, we haue done that we were bounde to do. 11 And it fortuned, whan he toke his iourney towarde Ierusalem, he wente thorow the myddest of Samaria and Galile. 12 And as he came in to a towne, there met him ten leporous men, which stode afarre of, 13 and lift vp their voyce, and sayde: Iesu master, haue mercy vpon vs. 14 And whan he sawe them, he sayde vnto the: Go, and shewe youre selues vnto ye prestes. And it came to passe, as they wente, they were clensed. 15 And one of them wha he sawe that he was clensed, he turned backe agayne, and praysed God with loude voyce, 16 and fell downe on his face at his fete, and gaue him thankes. And the same was a Samaritane. 17 Iesus answered and saide: Are there not ten clensed? But where are those nyne? 18 There were els none founde, that turned agayne, and gaue God the prayse, saue onely this strauger. 19 And he sayde vnto him: Aryse, go thy waye, thy faith hath made ye whole. 20 But whan he was demaunded of ye Pharises: Whan cometh the kyngdome of God? He answered them, and sayde: The kyngdome of God commeth not with outwarde appearaunce, 21 nether shal it be sayde: lo, here or there is it. For beholde, ye kyngdome of God is inwarde in you. 22 And he sayde to the disciples: The tyme shal come, wha ye shal desyre to se one daye of the sonne of man, and shal not se it. 23 And they shal saye vnto you: Se here, Se there. Go not ye, nether folowe, 24 for as the lightenynge shyneth aboue from the heauen, and lighteth ouer all that is vnder the heaue, so shal the sonne of ma be in his daye. 25 But first must he suffre many thinges, and be refused of this generacion. 26 And as it came to passe in the tyme of Noe, so shal it come to passe also in ye dayes of the sonne of man. 27 They ate, they dranke, they maried, and were maried, euen vnto ye daye that Noe wente in to the Arke, and ye floude came, and destroyed them all. 28 Likewyse also as it came to passe in the tyme of Lot, they ate, they dranke, they bought, they solde, they planted, they buylded. 29 But euen the same daye that Lot wente out of Sodom, it rayned fyre and brymstone from heaue, and destroyed them all. 30 After this maner also shal it go, in the daye whan the sonne of man shal appeare. 31 In that daye, who so is vpo the rofe, and his stuffe in ye house, let him not come downe to fetch it: Likewyse he that is in the felde, let him not turne backe, for it that is behynde him. 32 Remebre Lottes wife. 33 Who so euer goeth aboute to saue his life, shal lose it: and who so euer shal lose it, shal saue it. 34 I saye vnto you: In yt night shal two lye vpon one bed, the one shalbe receaued, the other shalbe for saken. 35 Two shalbe gryndinge together, the one shalbe receaued, the other shalbe forsaken. 36 (Omitted Text) 37 And they answered, and sayde vnto him: Where LORDE? He sayde vnto the: Where so euer ye deed carcase is there wil ye Aegles be gathered together.
