Luke 17

Christ teacheth to avoid occasions of offence.

Luke 17:1 He sayde vnto his disciples: It is vnpossible that offences shulde not come: but wo vnto him by whom they come: Luke 17:2 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.

One to forgive another.

Luke 17:3 Take hede to youre selues. Yf thy brother trespace agaynst the, rebuke him: Luke 17:4 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. Luke 17:5 And the Apostles sayde vnto ye LORDE: Increace oure faith.

The power of faith.

Luke 17:6 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.

How we are bound to God, and not he to us.

Luke 17:7 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? Luke 17:8 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. Luke 17:9 Thanketh he the same seruaunt also, because he dyd that was commaunded him? I trowe not. Luke 17:10 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.

He healeth ten lepers.

Luke 17:11 And it fortuned, whan he toke his iourney towarde Ierusalem, he wente thorow the myddest of Samaria and Galile. Luke 17:12 And as he came in to a towne, there met him ten leporous men, which stode afarre of, Luke 17:13 and lift vp their voyce, and sayde: Iesu master, haue mercy vpon vs. Luke 17:14 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. Luke 17:15 And one of them wha he sawe that he was clensed, he turned backe agayne, and praysed God with loude voyce, Luke 17:16 and fell downe on his face at his fete, and gaue him thankes. And the same was a Samaritane. Luke 17:17 Iesus answered and saide: Are there not ten clensed? But where are those nyne? Luke 17:18 There were els none founde, that turned agayne, and gaue God the prayse, saue onely this strauger. Luke 17:19 And he sayde vnto him: Aryse, go thy waye, thy faith hath made ye whole.

Luke 17:20 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, Luke 17:21 nether shal it be sayde: lo, here or there is it. For beholde, ye kyngdome of God is inwarde in you.

Of the Kingdom of God, and the coming of the Son of man.

Luke 17:22 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. Luke 17:23 And they shal saye vnto you: Se here, Se there. Go not ye, nether folowe, Luke 17:24 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. Luke 17:25 But first must he suffre many thinges, and be refused of this generacion. Luke 17:26 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. Luke 17:27 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. Luke 17:28 Likewyse also as it came to passe in the tyme of Lot, they ate, they dranke, they bought, they solde, they planted, they buylded. Luke 17:29 But euen the same daye that Lot wente out of Sodom, it rayned fyre and brymstone from heaue, and destroyed them all. Luke 17:30 After this maner also shal it go, in the daye whan the sonne of man shal appeare. Luke 17:31 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. Luke 17:32 Remebre Lottes wife. Luke 17:33 Who so euer goeth aboute to saue his life, shal lose it: and who so euer shal lose it, shal saue it. Luke 17:34 I saye vnto you: In yt night shal two lye vpon one bed, the one shalbe receaued, the other shalbe for saken. Luke 17:35 Two shalbe gryndinge together, the one shalbe receaued, the other shalbe forsaken. Luke 17:36 {Absent from this edition.} Luke 17:37 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.
