Luka 17 – לוקא יז


1And Yeshua said to His Talmidim, “It is impossible but that offenses should not come; but woe to him by whose hand they come!  2It would be better for him that a donkey’s millstone were hanged on his neck, and he were thrown into the sea, than to cause one of these little ones to stumble.  3Beware among yourselves. If your brother should sin, rebuke him; and if he repents, forgive him.  4And if he should offend you seven times in a day, and seven times in a day turn to you and say, ‘I repent,’ forgive him.”  5And the Shlikhim said to Adoneinu, “Increase our Emunah.”  6He said to them, “If you have Emunah even as a grain of mustard seed, you could say to this tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it would obey you.  7Now, which of you has a servant who ploughs, or feeds sheep, and if he should come from the field, would say to him, ‘Enter in and sit down?’  8But he will rather say to him, ‘Prepare something that I may have my supper, and gird yourself and serve me until I eat and drink; and then you also can eat and drink.’  9What! Will that servant receive praise, because he did what he was commanded to do? I do not think so.  10Even you also, when you have done all the things which are commanded you, say, ‘We are idle servants; we have only done what was our duty to do.’”

11And it came to pass while Yeshua was going to Yerushalayim, He went through Shomron which is towards the Galil.  12And when He drew near to enter a village, He was met by ten lepers, and they stood afar off; 13and they lifted their voices saying, “O Yeshua, Adoneinu, have mercy on us.”  14And when He saw them He said to them, “Go show yourselves to the Kohanim.” And while they were going, they were cleansed.  15But one of them, when he saw that he was cleansed, turned back, and with a loud voice praised Elohim.  16And he fell on his face at the feet of Yeshua, thanking Him; and this one was a Shomroni.  17Yeshua, answering, said, “Were there not ten who were cleansed? Where are the nine?  18Why did they separate themselves so as not to come and give praise to Elohim, except this man who is of a strange people?”  19And He said to him,  “Arise, go; your  Emunah has given you life.”

20When some of the P’rushim asked Yeshua when Malkhut HaElohim would come, He answered, saying to them, “Malkhut HaElohim does not come by observation.  21Neither will they say, ‘Behold, it is here!’ or, ‘behold, it is there!’ For behold, Malkhut HaElohim is within you.”  22And He said to His Talmidim, “The time will come when you will covet to see one of the days of Ben HaAdam, and you will not see it.  23And if they should say to you, ‘Behold, He is here!’ And ‘Behold, He is there!’ do not go.  24For just as the lightning flashes from the sky, and all under the sky is lighted, such will be the day of Ben HaAdam.  25But first He must suffer a great many things, and be rejected by this generation.  26Just as it happened in the days of No’akh, such will it be in the days of Ben HaAdam.  27For they were eating and drinking, and marrying, and giving in marriage, until the day when No’akh entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed every man.  28And again, just as it happened in the days of Lot, they were eating and drinking, and buying and selling, and planting and building; 29but in the day when Lot went out of S’dom,  יהוה  sent down a rain of fire and sulfur from Heaven, and destroyed them all.  30Such will it be in the day when Ben HaAdam appears.  31In that day, he who is on the roof, with his clothes in the house, will not come down to take them; and he who is in the field will not turn back.  32Just remember Lot’s wife.  33He who desires to save his life shall lose it; and he who loses his life shall save it.  34I say to you that in that very night two will be in one bed; one will be taken and the other forsaken.  35And two women will be grinding together; one will be taken and the other forsaken.  36Two will be in the field; one will be taken and the other forsaken.”  37They answered, saying to Him, “Adoneinu, to what place?” He said to them, “Wherever the Guf is, there will the eagles gather.”
