The Gospel According to St. Luke
1 – And he said to his disciples: It is impossible that scandals should not come: but woe to him through whom they come.
2 – It were better for him, that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should scandalize one of these little ones.
3 – Take heed to yourselves. If thy brother sin against thee, reprove him: and if he do penance, forgive him.
4 – And if he sin against thee seven times in a day, and seven times in a day be converted unto thee, saying, I repent; forgive him.
5 – And the apostles said to the Lord: Increase our faith.
6 – And the Lord said: If you had faith like to a grain of mustard seed, you might say to this mulberry tree, Be thou rooted up, and be thou transplanted into the sea: and it would obey you.
7 – But which of you having a servant ploughing, or feeding cattle, will say to him, when he is come from the field: Immediately go, sit down to meat:
8 – And will not rather say to him: Make ready my supper, and gird thyself, and serve me, whilst I eat and drink, and afterwards thou shalt eat and drink?
9 – Doth he thank that servant, for doing the things which he commanded him?
10 – I think not. So you also, when you shall have done all these things that are commanded you, say: We are unprofitable servants; we have done that which we ought to do.
11 – And it came to pass, as he was going to Jerusalem, he passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee.
12 – And as he entered into a certain town, there met him ten men that were lepers, who stood afar off;
13 – And lifted up their voice, saying: Jesus, master, have mercy on us.
14 – Whom when he saw, he said: Go, shew yourselves to the priests. And it came to pass, as they went, they were made clean.
15 – And one of them, when he saw that he was made clean, went back, with a loud voice glorifying God.
16 – And he fell on his face before his feet, giving thanks: and this was a Samaritan.
17 – And Jesus answering, said, Were not ten made clean? and where are the nine?
18 – There is no one found to return and give glory to God, but this stranger.
19 – And he said to him: Arise, go thy way; for thy faith hath made thee whole.
20 – And being asked by the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come? he answered them, and said: The kingdom of God cometh not with observation:
21 – Neither shall they say: Behold here, or behold there. For lo, the kingdom of God is within you.
22 – And he said to his disciples: The days will come, when you shall desire to see one day of the Son of man; and you shall not see it.
23 – And they will say to you: See here, and see there. Go ye not after, nor follow them:
24 – For as the lightening that lighteneth from under heaven, shineth unto the parts that are under heaven, so shall the Son of man be in his day.
25 – But first he must suffer many things, and be rejected by this generation.
26 – And as it came to pass in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.
27 – They did eat and drink, they married wives, and were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark: and the flood came and destroyed them all.
28 – Likewise as it came to pass, in the days of Lot: they did eat and drink, they bought and sold, they planted and built.
29 – And in the day that Lot went out of Sodom, it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.
30 – Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man shall be revealed.
31 – In that hour, he that shall be on the housetop, and his goods in the house, let him not go down to take them away: and he that shall be in the field, in like manner, let him not return back.
32 – Remember Lot’s wife.
33 – Whosoever shall seek to save his life, shall lose it: and whosoever shall lose it, shall preserve it.
34 – I say to you: in that night there shall be two men in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left.
35 – Two women shall be grinding together: the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left: two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be keft.
36 – They answering, say to him: Where, Lord?
37 – Who said to them: Wheresoever the body shall be, thither will the eagles also be gathered together.
