11 Now it happened has He went to Jerusalem that He passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee. 12 Then as He entered a certain village, there met Him ten men who were lepers, iwho stood afar off. 13 And they lifted up their voices and said, “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!”
14 So when He saw them, He said to them, j“Go, show yourselves to the priests.” And so it was that as they went, they were cleansed.
17 So Jesus answered and said, “Were there not ten cleansed? But where are the nine? 18 Were there not any found who returned to give glory to God except this foreigner?” 19 mAnd He said to him, “Arise, go your way. Your faith has made you well.”
20 Now when He was asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, He answered them and said, “The kingdom of God does not come with observation; 21 nnor will they say, 6‘See here!’ or ‘See there!’ For indeed, othe kingdom of God is 7within you.”
22 Then He said to the disciples, p“The days will come when you will desire to see one of the days of the Son of Man, and you will not see it. 23 qAnd they will say to you, 8‘Look here!’ or ‘Look there!’ Do not go after them or follow them. 24 rFor as the lightning that flashes out of one part under heaven shines to the other part under heaven, so also the Son of Man will be in His day. 25 sBut first He must suffer many things and be trejected by this generation. 26 uAnd as it vwas in the wdays of xNoah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man: 27 They ate, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the yday that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and zdestroyed them all. 28 aLikewise as it was also in the days of Lot: They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; 29 but on bthe day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. 30 Even so will it be in the day when the Son of Man cis revealed.
31 “In that day, he dwho is on the housetop, and his 9goods are in the house, let him not come down to take them away. And likewise the one who is in the field, let him not turn back. 32 eRemember Lot’s wife. 33 fWhoever seeks to save his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life will preserve it. 34 gI tell you, in that night there will be two 1men in one bed: the one will be taken and the other will be left. 35 hTwo women will be grinding together: the one will be taken and the other left. 36 2Two men will be in the field: the one will be taken and the other left.”
37 And they answered and said to Him, i“Where, Lord?”
So He said to them, “Wherever the body is, there the eagles will be gathered together.”
18 Then He spoke a parable to them, that men aalways ought to pray and not lose heart, 2 saying: “There was in a certain city a judge who did not fear God nor 1regard man. 3 Now there was a widow in that city; and she came to him, saying, 2‘Get justice for me from my adversary.’ 4 And he would not for a while; but afterward he said within himself, ‘Though I do not fear God nor regard man, 5 byet because this widow troubles me I will 3avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me.’ ”
6 Then the Lord said, “Hear what the unjust judge said. 7 And cshall God not avenge His own elect who cry out day and night to Him, though He bears long with them? 8 I tell you dthat He will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?”
9 Also He spoke this parable to some ewho trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others: 10 “Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. 11 The Pharisee fstood and prayed thus with himself, g‘God, I thank You that I am not like other men—extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this tax collector. 12 I fast twice a week; I give tithes of all that I possess.’ 13 And the tax collector, standing afar off, would not so much as raise his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, ‘God, be merciful to me a sinner!’ 14 I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other; hfor everyone who exalts himself will be 4humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.”
