 <<  Lukas 12 >> 

1MEANWHILE, when a crowd of many thousands had gathered, packed so close that they were trampling on one another, he began to speak first to his disciples: “Be on your guard against the leaven of the Pharisees -- I mean their hypocrisy.

2There is nothing covered up that will not be uncovered, nothing hidden that will not be made known.

3Therefore everything you have said in the dark will be heard in broad daylight, and what you have whispered behind closed doors will be shouted from the housetops.

4“To you who are my friends I say: do not fear those who kill the body and after that have nothing more they can do.

5I will show you whom to fear: fear him who, after he has killed, has authority to cast into hell. Believe me, he is the one to fear.

6“Are not five sparrows sold for twopence? Yet not one of them is overlooked by God.

7More than that, even the hairs of your head have all been counted. Do not be afraid; you are worth more than any number of sparrows.

8“I tell you this: whoever acknowledges me before others, the Son of Man will acknowledge before the angels of God;

9but whoever disowns me before others will be disowned before the angels of God.

10“Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven; but for him who slanders the Holy Spirit there will be no forgiveness.

11“When you are brought before synagogues and state authorities, do not worry about how you will conduct your defence or what you will say.

12When the time comes the Holy Spirit will instruct you what to say.”

13Someone in the crowd said to him, “Teacher, tell my brother to divide the family property with me.”

14He said to the man, “Who set me over you to judge or arbitrate?”

15Then to the people he said, “Beware! Be on your guard against greed of every kind, for even when someone has more than enough, his possessions do not give him life.”

16And he told them this parable: “There was a rich man whose land yielded a good harvest.

17He debated with himself: ‘What am I to do? I have not the space to store my produce.

18This is what I will do,’ said he: ‘I will pull down my barns and build them bigger. I will collect in them all my grain and other goods,

19and I will say to myself, “You have plenty of good things laid by, enough for many years to come: take life easy, eat, drink, and enjoy yourself.”’

20But God said to him, ‘You fool, this very night you must surrender your life; and the money you have made, who will get it now?’

21That is how it is with the man who piles up treasure for himself and remains a pauper in the sight of God.'

22To his disciples he said, “This is why I tell you not to worry about food to keep you alive or clothes to cover your body.

23Life is more than food, the body more than clothes.

24Think of the ravens: they neither sow nor reap; they have no storehouse or barn; yet God feeds them. You are worth far more than the birds!

25Can anxious thought add a day to your life?

26If, then, you cannot do even a very little thing, why worry about the rest?

27“Think of the lilies: they neither spin nor weave; yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his splendour was not attired like one of them.

28If that is how God clothes the grass, which is growing in the field today, and tomorrow is thrown on the stove, how much more will he clothe you! How little faith you have!

29Do not set your minds on what you are to eat or drink; do not be anxious.

30These are all things that occupy the minds of the Gentiles, but your Father knows that you need them.

31No, set your minds on his kingdom, and the rest will come to you as well.

32“Have no fear, little flock; for your Father has chosen to give you the kingdom.

33Sell your possessions and give to charity. Provide for yourselves purses that do not wear out, and never-failing treasure in heaven, where no thief can get near it, no moth destroy it.

34For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

35“Be ready for action, with your robes hitched up and your lamps alight.

36Be like people who wait for their master's return from a wedding party, ready to let him in the moment he arrives and knocks.

37Happy are those servants whom the master finds awake when he comes. Truly I tell you: he will hitch up his robe, seat them at table, and come and wait on them.

38If it is the middle of the night or before dawn when he comes and he still finds them awake, then are they happy indeed.

39Remember, if the householder had known at what time the burglar was coming he would not have let his house be broken into.

40So hold yourselves in readiness, because the Son of Man will come at the time you least expect him.”

41Peter said, “Lord, do you intend this parable specially for us or is it for everyone?”

42The Lord said, “Who is the trusty and sensible man whom his master will appoint as his steward, to manage his servants and issue their rations at the proper time?

43Happy that servant if his master comes home and finds him at work!

44I tell you this: he will be put in charge of all his master's property.

45But if that servant says to himself, ‘The master is a long time coming,’ and begins to bully the menservants and maids, and to eat and drink and get drunk,

46then the master will arrive on a day when the servant does not expect him, at a time he has not been told. He will cut him in pieces and assign him a place among the faithless.

47“The servant who knew his master's wishes, yet made no attempt to carry them out, will be flogged severely.

48But one who did not know them and earned a beating will be flogged less severely. Where someone has been given much, much will be expected of him; and the more he has had entrusted to him the more will be demanded of him.

49“I have come to set fire to the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled!

50I have a baptism to undergo, and what constraint I am under until it is over!

51Do you suppose I came to establish peace on the earth? No indeed, I have come to bring dissension.

52From now on, a family of five will be divided, three against two and two against three;

53father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law against daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law.”

54He also said to the people, “When you see clouds gathering in the west, you say at once, ‘It is going to rain,’ and rain it does.

55And when the wind is from the south, you say, ‘It will be hot,’ and it is.

56What hypocrites you are! You know how to interpret the appearance of earth and sky, but cannot interpret this fateful hour.

57“Why can you not judge for yourselves what is right?

58When you are going with your opponent to court, make an effort to reach a settlement with him while you are still on the way; otherwise he may drag you before the judge, and the judge hand you over to the officer, and the officer throw you into jail.

59I tell you, you will not be let out until you have paid the very last penny.”
