NASTextRec
12:1 Ἐν οἷς ἐπισυναχθεισῶν τῶν μυριάδων τοῦ ὄχλου, ὥστε καταπατεῖν ἀλλήλους, ἤρξατο λέγειν πρὸς τοὺς μαθητὰς αὐτοῦ πρῶτον, προσέχετε ἑαυτοῖς ἀπὸ τῆς ζύμης, ἥτις ἐστὶν ὑπόκρισις, τῶν Φαρισαίων. 1 Ἐν οἷς ἐπισυναχθεισῶν τῶν μυριάδων τοῦ ὄχλου, ὥστε καταπατεῖν ἀλλήλους, ἤρξατο λέγειν πρὸς τοὺς μαθητὰς αὐτοῦ πρῶτον, προσέχετε ἑαυτοῖς ἀπὸ τῆς ζύμης τῶν Φαρισαίων, ἥτις ἐστὶν ὑπόκρισις.
Under these circumstances, after so many thousands of people had gathered together that they were stepping on one another, he began saying to his disciples first of all, “Beware of the leaven of the Farisais, which is hypocrisy. In the mean time, when there were gathered together an innumerable multitude of people, insomuch that they trode one upon another, he began to say unto his disciples first of all, Beware ye of the leaven of the Farisais, which is hypocrisy.
12:2 οὐδὲν δὲ συγκεκαλυμμένον ἐστὶν οὐκ ἀποκαλυφθήσεται καὶ κρυπτὸν οὐ γνωσθήσεται. 2 οὐδὲν δὲ συγκεκαλυμμένον ἐστίν, οὐκ ἀποκαλυφθήσεται, καὶ κρυπτόν, οὐ γνωσθήσεται.
But there is nothing covered up that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known. For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known.
12:3 ἀνθ᾿ ὧν ὅσα ἐν τῇ σκοτίᾳ εἴπατε ἐν τῷ φωτὶ ἀκουσθήσεται, καὶ πρὸς τὸ οὖς ἐλαλήσατε ἐν τοῖς ταμείοις κηρυχθήσεται ἐπὶ τῶν δωμάτων. 3 ἀνθ᾿ ὧν ὅσα ἐν τῇ σκοτίᾳ εἴπατε, ἐν τῷ φωτὶ ἀκουσθήσεται·
καὶ πρὸς τὸ οὖς ἐλαλήσατε ἐν τοῖς ταμείοις, κηρυχθήσεται ἐπὶ τῶν δωμάτων.
Accordingly, whatever you have said in the dark will be heard in the light, and what you have whispered in the inner rooms will be proclaimed upon the housetops. Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops.
12:5 ὑποδείξω δὲ ὑμῖν τίνα φοβηθῆτε·
φοβήθητε τὸν μετὰ τὸ ἀποκτεῖναι ἔχοντα ἐξουσίαν ἐμβαλεῖν εἰς τὴν γέενναν.
ναὶ λέγω ὑμῖν, τοῦτον φοβήθητε.
5 ὑποδείξω δὲ ὑμῖν τίνα φοβήθητε·
φοβήθητε τὸν μετὰ τὸ ἀποκτεῖναι ἐξουσίαν ἔχοντα ἐμβαλεῖν εἰς τὴν γέενναν·
ναί, λέγω ὑμῖν, τοῦτον φοβήθητε.
But I will warn you whom to fear: fear the One who, after he has killed, has authority to cast into hell; yes, I tell you, fear him! But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.
12:7 ἀλλὰ καὶ αἱ τρίχες τῆς κεφαλῆς ὑμῶν πᾶσαι ἠρίθμηνται.
μὴ φοβεῖσθε·
πολλῶν στρουθίων διαφέρετε.
7 ἀλλὰ καὶ αἱ τρίχες τῆς κεφαλῆς ὑμῶν πᾶσαι ἠρίθμηνται.
μὴ οὖν φοβεῖσθε·
πολλῶν στρουθίων διαφέρετε.
Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don’t fear; you are more valuable than many sparrows. But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.
12:10 καὶ πᾶς ὃς ἐρεῖ λόγον εἰς τὸν υἱὸν τοῦ ἀνθρώπου, ἀφεθήσεται αὐτῷ·
τῷ δὲ εἰς τὸ ἅγιον πνεῦμα βλασφημήσαντι οὐκ ἀφεθήσεται.
10 καὶ πᾶς ὃς ἐρεῖ λόγον εἰς τὸν υἱὸν τοῦ ἀνθρώπου, ἀφεθήσεται αὐτῷ·
τῷ δὲ εἰς τὸ ἅγιον πνεῦμα βλασφημήσαντι οὐκ ἀφεθήσεται.
And everyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man, it will be forgiven him; but he who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit, it will not be forgiven him. And whosoever shall speak a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but unto him that blasphemeth against the Holy Ghost it shall not be forgiven.
12:11 Ὅταν δὲ εἰσφέρωσιν ὑμᾶς ἐπὶ τὰς συναγωγὰς καὶ τὰς ἀρχὰς καὶ τὰς ἐξουσίας, μὴ μεριμνήσητε πῶς τί ἀπολογήσησθε τί εἴπητε· 11 Ὅταν δὲ προσφέρωσιν ὑμᾶς ἐπὶ τὰς συναγωγὰς καὶ τὰς ἀρχὰς καὶ τὰς ἐξουσίας, μὴ μεριμνᾶτε πῶς τί ἀπολογήσησθε, τί εἴπητε·
When they bring you before the synagogues and the rulers and the authorities, don’t worry about how or what you are to speak in your defense, or what you are to say; And when they bring you unto the synagogues, and unto magistrates, and powers, take ye no thought how or what thing ye shall answer, or what ye shall say:
12:12 τὸ γὰρ ἅγιον πνεῦμα διδάξει ὑμᾶς ἐν αὐτῇ τῇ ὥρᾳ δεῖ εἰπεῖν. 12 τὸ γὰρ ἅγιον πνεῦμα διδάξει ὑμᾶς ἐν αὐτῇ τῇ ὥρᾳ, δεῖ εἰπεῖν.
for the Holy Spirit will teach you in that very hour what you ought to say.” For the Holy Ghost shall teach you in the same hour what ye ought to say.
12:13 εἶπεν δὲ τις ἐκ τοῦ ὄχλου αὐτῷ·
διδάσκαλε, εἰπὲ τῷ ἀδελφῷ μου μερίσασθαι μετ᾿ ἐμοῦ τὴν κληρονομίαν.
13 εἶπε δέ τις αὐτῷ ἐκ τοῦ ὄχλου, διδάσκαλε, εἰπὲ τῷ ἀδελφῷ μου μερίσασθαι μετ᾿ ἐμοῦ τὴν κληρονομίαν.
Someone in the crowd said to him, “Teacher, tell my brother to divide the family inheritance with me.” And one of the company said unto him, Master, speak to my brother, that he divide the inheritance with me.
12:14  δὲ εἶπεν αὐτῷ, ἄνθρωπε, τίς με κατέστησεν κριτὴν μεριστὴν ἐφ᾿ ὑμᾶς; 14  δὲ εἶπεν αὐτῷ, ἄνθρωπε, τίς με κατέστησε δικαστὴν μεριστὴν ἐφ᾿ ὑμᾶς;
But he said to him, “Man, who appointed me a judge or arbitrator over you?” And he said unto him, Man, who made me a judge or a divider over you?
12:15 εἶπεν δὲ πρὸς αὐτούς, ὁρᾶτε καὶ φυλάσσεσθε ἀπὸ πάσης πλεονεξίας, ὅτι οὐκ ἐν τῷ περισσεύειν τινὶ ζωὴ αὐτοῦ ἐστιν ἐκ τῶν ὑπαρχόντων αὐτῷ. 15 εἶπε δὲ πρὸς αὐτούς, ὁρᾶτε καὶ φυλάσσεσθε ἀπὸ τῆς πλεονεξίας·
ὅτι οὐκ ἐν τῷ περισσεύειν τινὶ ζωὴ αὐτοῦ ἐστιν ἐκ τῶν ὑπαρχόντων αὐτοῦ.
Then he said to them, “Beware, and be on your guard against every form of greed; for not even when one has an abundance does his life consist of his possessions.” And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.
12:16 εἶπεν δὲ παραβολὴν πρὸς αὐτοὺς λέγων, ἀνθρώπου τινὸς πλουσίου εὐφόρησεν χώρα. 16 εἶπε δὲ παραβολὴν πρὸς αὐτοὺς, λέγων, ἀνθρώπου τινὸς πλουσίου εὐφόρησεν χώρα·
And he told them a parable, saying, “The land of a rich man was very productive. And he spake a parable unto them, saying, The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully:
12:17 καὶ διελογίζετο ἐν ἑαυτῷ λέγων, τί ποιήσω, ὅτι οὐκ ἔχω ποῦ συνάξω τοὺς καρπούς μου; 17 καὶ διελογίζετο ἐν ἑαυτῷ λέγων, τί ποιήσω, ὅτι οὐκ ἔχω ποῦ συνάξω τοὺς καρπούς μου;
And he began reasoning to himself, saying, ‘What shall I do, since I have no place to store my crops?’ And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits?
12:18 καὶ εἶπεν, τοῦτο ποιήσω, καθελῶ μου τὰς ἀποθήκας καὶ μείζονας οἰκοδομήσω καὶ συνάξω ἐκεῖ πάντα τὸν σῖτον καὶ τὰ ἀγαθά μου 18 καὶ εἶπε, τοῦτο ποιήσω·
καθελῶ μου τὰς ἀποθήκας, καὶ μείζονας οἰκοδομήσω, καὶ συνάξω ἐκεῖ πάντα τὰ γενήματά μου καὶ τὰ ἀγαθά μου,
Then he said, ‘This is what I will do: I will tear down my barns and build larger ones, and there I will store all my grain and my goods. And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods.
12:19 καὶ ἐρῶ τῇ ψυχῇ μου, ψυχή, ἔχεις πολλὰ ἀγαθὰ κείμενα εἰς ἔτη πολλά·
ἀναπαύου, φάγε, πίε, εὐφραίνου.
19 καὶ ἐρῶ τῇ ψυχῇ μου, ψυχή, ἔχεις πολλὰ ἀγαθὰ κείμενα εἰς ἔτη πολλά·
ἀναπαύου, φάγε, πίε, εὐφραίνου.
And I will say to my soul, “Soul, you have many goods laid up for many years to come; take your ease, eat, drink and be merry.”’ And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry.
12:20 εἶπεν δὲ αὐτῷ θεός, ἄφρων, ταύτῃ τῇ νυκτὶ τὴν ψυχήν σου ἀπαιτοῦσιν ἀπὸ σοῦ·
δὲ ἡτοίμασας, τίνι ἔσται;
20 εἶπε δὲ αὐτῷ θεός, ἄφρων, ταύτῃ τῇ νυκτὶ τὴν ψυχήν σου ἀπαιτοῦσιν ἀπὸ σοῦ·
δὲ ἡτοίμασας, τίνι ἔσται;
But God said to him, ‘You fool! This very night your soul is required of you; and now who will own what you have prepared?’ But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?
12:21 οὕτως θησαυρίζων ἑαυτῷ καὶ μὴ εἰς θεὸν πλουτῶν. 21 οὕτως θησαυρίζων ἑαυτῷ καὶ μὴ εἰς θεὸν πλουτῶν.
So is the man who stores up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.” So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.
12:22 εἶπεν δὲ πρὸς τοὺς μαθητὰς [αὐτοῦ], διὰ τοῦτο λέγω ὑμῖν·
μὴ μεριμνᾶτε τῇ ψυχῇ τί φάγητε, μηδὲ τῷ σώματι τί ἐνδύσησθε.
22 εἶπε δὲ πρὸς τοὺς μαθητὰς αὐτοῦ, διὰ τοῦτο ὑμῖν λέγω, μὴ μεριμνᾶτε τῇ ψυχῇ ὑμῶν, τί φάγητε·
μηδὲ τῷ σώματι, τί ἐνδύσησθε.
And he said to his disciples, “For this reason I say to you, don’t worry about your life, as to what you will eat; nor for your body, as to what you will put on. And he said unto his disciples, Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat; neither for the body, what ye shall put on.
12:23  γὰρ ψυχὴ πλεῖόν ἐστιν τῆς τροφῆς καὶ τὸ σῶμα τοῦ ἐνδύματος. 23  ψυχὴ πλεῖόν ἐστι τῆς τροφῆς, καὶ τὸ σῶμα τοῦ ἐνδύματος.
For life is more than food, and the body more than clothing. The life is more than meat, and the body is more than raiment.
12:26 εἰ οὖν οὐδὲ ἐλάχιστον δύνασθε, τί περὶ τῶν λοιπῶν μεριμνᾶτε; 26 εἰ οὖν οὔτε ἐλάχιστον δύνασθε, τί περὶ τῶν λοιπῶν μεριμνᾶτε;
If then you cannot do even a very little thing, why do you worry about other matters? If ye then be not able to do that thing which is least, why take ye thought for the rest?
12:27 κατανοήσατε τὰ κρίνα πῶς αὐξάνει·
οὐ κοπιᾷ οὐδὲ νήθει λέγω δὲ ὑμῖν, οὐδὲ Σολομὼν ἐν πάσῃ τῇ δόξῃ αὐτοῦ περιεβάλετο ὡς ἓν τούτων.
27 κατανοήσατε τὰ κρίνα, πῶς αὐξάνει·
οὐ κοπιᾷ, οὐδὲ νήθει·
λέγω δὲ ὑμῖν, οὐδὲ Σολομὼν ἐν πάσῃ τῇ δόξῃ αὐτοῦ περιεβάλετο ὡς ἓν τούτων.
Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; but I tell you, not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these. Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
12:28 εἰ δὲ ἐν ἀγρῷ τὸν χόρτον ὄντα σήμερον καὶ αὔριον εἰς κλίβανον βαλλόμενον θεὸς οὕτως ἀμφιέζει, πόσῳ μᾶλλον ὑμᾶς, ὀλιγόπιστοι. 28 εἰ δὲ τὸν χόρτον ἐν τῷ ἀγρῷ σήμερον ὄντα, καὶ αὔριον εἰς κλίβανον βαλλόμενον, θεὸς οὕτως ἀμφιέννυσι, πόσῳ μᾶλλον ὑμᾶς, ὀλιγόπιστοι;
But if God so clothes the grass in the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, how much more will he clothe you? You men of little faith! If then God so clothe the grass, which is to day in the field, and to morrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he clothe you, Oh ye of little faith?
12:29 καὶ ὑμεῖς μὴ ζητεῖτε τί φάγητε καὶ τί πίητε καὶ μὴ μετεωρίζεσθε· 29 καὶ ὑμεῖς μὴ ζητεῖτε τί φάγητε, τί πίητε·
καὶ μὴ μετεωρίζεσθε·
And don’t seek what you will eat and what you will drink, and don’t keep worrying. And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind.
12:30 ταῦτα γὰρ πάντα τὰ ἔθνη τοῦ κόσμου ἐπιζητοῦσιν, ὑμῶν δὲ πατὴρ οἶδεν ὅτι χρῄζετε τούτων. 30 ταῦτα γὰρ πάντα τὰ ἔθνη τοῦ κόσμου ἐπιζητεῖ·
ὑμῶν δὲ πατὴρ οἶδεν ὅτι χρῄζετε τούτων.
For all these things the nations of the world eagerly seek; but your Father knows that you need these things. For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things.
12:31 πλὴν ζητεῖτε τὴν βασιλείαν αὐτοῦ, καὶ ταῦτα προστεθήσεται ὑμῖν. 31 πλὴν ζητεῖτε τὴν βασιλείαν τοῦ θεοῦ, καὶ ταῦτα πάντα προστεθήσεται ὑμῖν.
But seek his kingdom, and these things will be added to you. But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you.
12:32 Μὴ φοβοῦ, τὸ μικρὸν ποίμνιον, ὅτι εὐδόκησεν πατὴρ ὑμῶν δοῦναι ὑμῖν τὴν βασιλείαν. 32 Μὴ φοβοῦ, τὸ μικρὸν ποίμνιον·
ὅτι εὐδόκησεν πατὴρ ὑμῶν δοῦναι ὑμῖν τὴν βασιλείαν.
Don’t be afraid, little flock, for your Father has chosen gladly to give you the kingdom. Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
12:34 ὅπου γάρ ἐστιν θησαυρὸς ὑμῶν, ἐκεῖ καὶ καρδία ὑμῶν ἔσται. 34 ὅπου γάρ ἐστιν θησαυρὸς ὑμῶν, ἐκεῖ καὶ καρδία ὑμῶν ἔσται.
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
12:36 καὶ ὑμεῖς ὅμοιοι ἀνθρώποις προσδεχομένοις τὸν κύριον ἑαυτῶν πότε ἀναλύσῃ ἐκ τῶν γάμων, ἵνα ἐλθόντος καὶ κρούσαντος εὐθέως ἀνοίξωσιν αὐτῷ. 36 καὶ ὑμεῖς ὅμοιοι ἀνθρώποις προσδεχομένοις τὸν κύριον ἑαυτῶν, πότε ἀναλύσει ἐκ τῶν γάμων, ἵνα, ἐλθόντος καὶ κρούσαντος, εὐθέως ἀνοίξωσιν αὐτῷ.
Be like men who are waiting for their master when he returns from the wedding feast, so that they may immediately open the door to him when he comes and knocks. And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he will return from the wedding; that when he cometh and knocketh, they may open unto him immediately.
12:37 μακάριοι οἱ δοῦλοι ἐκεῖνοι, οὓς ἐλθὼν κύριος εὑρήσει γρηγοροῦντας·
ἀμὴν λέγω ὑμῖν ὅτι περιζώσεται καὶ ἀνακλινεῖ αὐτοὺς καὶ παρελθὼν διακονήσει αὐτοῖς.
37 μακάριοι οἱ δοῦλοι ἐκεῖνοι, οὓς ἐλθὼν κύριος εὑρήσει γρηγοροῦντας.
ἀμὴν λέγω ὑμῖν, ὅτι περιζώσεται καὶ ἀνακλινεῖ αὐτοὺς, καὶ παρελθὼν διακονήσει αὐτοῖς.
Blessed are those slaves whom the master will find on the alert when he comes; truly I say to you, that he will gird himself to serve, and have them recline at the table, and will come up and wait on them. Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them.
12:38 κἂν ἐν τῇ δευτέρᾳ κἂν ἐν τῇ τρίτῃ φυλακῇ ἔλθῃ καὶ εὕρῃ οὕτως, μακάριοί εἰσιν ἐκεῖνοι. 38 καὶ ἐὰν ἔλθῃ ἐν τῇ δευτέρᾳ φυλακῇ, καὶ ἐν τῇ τρίτῃ φυλακῇ ἔλθῃ, καὶ εὕρῃ οὕτω, μακάριοί εἰσιν οἱ δοῦλοι ἐκεῖνοι.
Whether he comes in the second watch, or even in the third, and finds them so, blessed are those slaves. And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants.
12:39 τοῦτο δὲ γινώσκετε ὅτι εἰ ᾔδει οἰκοδεσπότης ποίᾳ ὥρᾳ κλέπτης ἔρχεται, οὐκ ἄν ἀφῆκεν διορυχθῆναι τὸν οἶκον αὐτοῦ. 39 τοῦτο δὲ γινώσκετε, ὅτι εἰ ᾔδει οἰκοδεσπότης ποίᾳ ὥρᾳ κλέπτης ἔρχεται, ἐγρηγόρησεν ἄν, καὶ οὐκ ἂν ἀφῆκεν διορυγῆναι τὸν οἶκον αὐτοῦ.
“But be sure of this, that if the head of the house had known at what hour the thief was coming, he would not have allowed his house to be broken into. And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through.
12:40 καὶ ὑμεῖς γίνεσθε ἕτοιμοι, ὅτι ὥρᾳ οὐ δοκεῖτε υἱὸς τοῦ ἀνθρώπου ἔρχεται. 40 καὶ ὑμεῖς οὖν γίνεσθε ἕτοιμοι·
ὅτι ὥρᾳ οὐ δοκεῖτε, υἱὸς τοῦ ἀνθρώπου ἔρχεται.
You too, be ready; for the Son of Man is coming at an hour that you don’t expect.” Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not.
12:41 εἶπεν δὲ Πέτρος, κύριε, πρὸς ἡμᾶς τὴν παραβολὴν ταύτην λέγεις καὶ πρὸς πάντας; 41 εἶπε δὲ αὐτῷ Πέτρος, κύριε, πρὸς ἡμᾶς τὴν παραβολὴν ταύτην λέγεις καὶ πρὸς πάντας;
Petros said, “Lord, are You addressing this parable to us, or to everyone else as well?” Then Petros said unto him, Lord, speakest thou this parable unto us, or even to all?
12:42 καὶ εἶπεν κύριος, τίς ἄρα ἐστὶν πιστὸς οἰκονόμος φρόνιμος, ὃν καταστήσει κύριος ἐπὶ τῆς θεραπείας αὐτοῦ τοῦ διδόναι ἐν καιρῷ [τὸ] σιτομέτριον; 42 εἶπε δὲ κύριος, τίς ἄρα ἐστὶν πιστὸς οἰκονόμος καὶ φρόνιμος, ὃν καταστήσει κύριος ἐπὶ τῆς θεραπείας αὐτοῦ, τοῦ διδόναι ἐν καιρῷ τὸ σιτομέτριον;
And the Lord said, “Who then is the faithful and sensible steward, whom his master will put in charge of his servants, to give them their rations at the proper time? And the Lord said, Who then is that faithful and wise steward, whom his lord shall make ruler over his household, to give them their portion of meat in due season?
12:44 ἀληθῶς λέγω ὑμῖν ὅτι ἐπὶ πᾶσιν τοῖς ὑπάρχουσιν αὐτοῦ καταστήσει αὐτόν. 44 ἀληθῶς λέγω ὑμῖν, ὅτι ἐπὶ πᾶσι τοῖς ὑπάρχουσιν αὐτοῦ καταστήσει αὐτόν.
Truly I say to you that he will put him in charge of all his possessions. Of a truth I say unto you, that he will make him ruler over all that he hath.
12:45 ἐὰν δὲ εἴπῃ δοῦλος ἐκεῖνος ἐν τῇ καρδίᾳ αὐτοῦ, χρονίζει κύριός μου ἔρχεσθαι, καὶ ἄρξηται τύπτειν τοὺς παῖδας καὶ τὰς παιδίσκας, ἐσθίειν τε καὶ πίνειν καὶ μεθύσκεσθαι, 45 ἐὰν δὲ εἴπῃ δοῦλος ἐκεῖνος ἐν τῇ καρδίᾳ αὐτοῦ, χρονίζει κύριός μου ἔρχεσθαι·
καὶ ἄρξηται τύπτειν τοὺς παῖδας καὶ τὰς παιδίσκας, ἐσθίειν τε καὶ πίνειν καὶ μεθύσκεσθαι·
But if that slave says in his heart, ‘My master will be a long time in coming,’ and begins to beat the slaves, both men and women, and to eat and drink and get drunk; But and if that servant say in his heart, my lord delayeth his coming; and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, and to eat and drink, and to be drunken;
12:46 ἥξει κύριος τοῦ δούλου ἐκείνου ἐν ἡμέρᾳ οὐ προσδοκᾷ καὶ ἐν ὥρᾳ οὐ γινώσκει, καὶ διχοτομήσει αὐτὸν καὶ τὸ μέρος αὐτοῦ μετὰ τῶν ἀπίστων θήσει. 46 ἥξει κύριος τοῦ δούλου ἐκείνου ἐν ἡμέρᾳ οὐ προσδοκᾷ, καὶ ἐν ὥρᾳ οὐ γινώσκει·
καὶ διχοτομήσει αὐτόν, καὶ τὸ μέρος αὐτοῦ μετὰ τῶν ἀπίστων θήσει.
the master of that slave will come on a day when he doesn’t expect him and at an hour he doesn’t know, and will cut him in pieces, and assign him a place with the unbelievers. The lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers.
12:47 ἐκεῖνος δὲ δοῦλος γνοὺς τὸ θέλημα τοῦ κυρίου αὐτοῦ καὶ μὴ ἑτοιμάσας ποιήσας πρὸς τὸ θέλημα αὐτοῦ δαρήσεται πολλάς· 47 ἐκεῖνος δὲ δοῦλος γνοὺς τὸ θέλημα τοῦ κυρίου ἑαυτοῦ καὶ μὴ ἑτοιμάσας μηδὲ ποιήσας πρὸς τὸ θέλημα αὐτοῦ, δαρήσεται πολλάς·
And that slave who knew his master's will and didn’t get ready or act in accord with his will, will receive many lashes, And that servant, which knew his lord's will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes.
12:48  δὲ μὴ γνούς, ποιήσας δὲ ἄξια πληγῶν δαρήσεται ὀλίγας.
παντὶ δὲ ἐδόθη πολύ, πολὺ ζητηθήσεται παρ᾿ αὐτοῦ, καὶ παρέθεντο πολύ, περισσότερον αἰτήσουσιν αὐτόν.
48  δὲ μὴ γνούς, ποιήσας δὲ ἄξια πληγῶν, δαρήσεται ὀλίγας.
παντὶ δὲ ἐδόθη πολύ, πολὺ ζητηθήσεται παρ᾿ αὐτοῦ·
καὶ παρέθεντο πολύ, περισσότερον αἰτήσουσιν αὐτόν.
but the one who didn’t know it, and committed deeds worthy of a flogging, will receive but few. From everyone who has been given much, much will be required; and to whom they entrusted much, of him they will ask all the more. But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.
12:49 πῦρ ἦλθον βαλεῖν ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν, καὶ τί θέλω εἰ ἤδη ἀνήφθη. 49 πῦρ ἦλθον βαλεῖν εἰς τὴν γῆν, καὶ τί θέλω εἰ ἤδη ἀνήφθη;
“I have come to cast fire upon the earth; and how I wish it were already kindled! I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I, if it be already kindled?
12:50 βάπτισμα δὲ ἔχω βαπτισθῆναι, καὶ πῶς συνέχομαι ἕως ὅτου τελεσθῇ. 50 βάπτισμα δὲ ἔχω βαπτισθῆναι, καὶ πῶς συνέχομαι ἕως οὗ τελεσθῇ;
But I have a baptism to undergo, and how distressed I am until it is accomplished! But I have a baptism to be baptized with; and how am I straitened till it be accomplished!
12:51 δοκεῖτε ὅτι εἰρήνην παρεγενόμην δοῦναι ἐν τῇ γῇ;
οὐχί, λέγω ὑμῖν, ἀλλ᾿ διαμερισμόν.
51 δοκεῖτε ὅτι εἰρήνην παρεγενόμην δοῦναι ἐν τῇ γῇ;
οὐχί, λέγω ὑμῖν, ἀλλ᾿ διαμερισμόν.
Do you suppose that I came to grant peace on earth? I tell you, no, but rather division; Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division:
12:52 ἔσονται γὰρ ἀπὸ τοῦ νῦν πέντε ἐν ἑνὶ οἴκῳ διαμεμερισμένοι, τρεῖς ἐπὶ δυσὶν καὶ δύο ἐπὶ τρισίν, 52 ἔσονται γὰρ ἀπὸ τοῦ νῦν πέντε ἐν οἴκῳ ἑνὶ διαμεμερισμένοι, τρεῖς ἐπὶ δυσί, καὶ δύο ἐπὶ τρισί,
for from now on five members in one household will be divided, three against two and two against three. For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three.
12:53 διαμερισθήσονται πατὴρ ἐπὶ υἱῷ καὶ υἱὸς ἐπὶ πατρί, μήτηρ ἐπὶ θυγατέρα καὶ θυγάτηρ ἐπὶ τὴν μητέρα, πενθερὰ ἐπὶ τὴν νύμφην αὐτῆς καὶ νύμφη ἐπὶ τὴν πενθεράν. 53 διαμερισθήσεται πατὴρ ἐφ᾿ υἱῷ, καὶ υἱὸς ἐπὶ πατρί·
μήτηρ ἐπὶ θυγατρί, καὶ θυγάτηρ ἐπὶ μητρί·
πενθερὰ ἐπὶ τὴν νύμφην αὐτῆς, καὶ νύμφη ἐπὶ τὴν πενθερὰν αὐτῆς.
They will be divided, father 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.” The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.

καὶ γίνεται οὕτω.

12:55 καὶ ὅταν νότον πνέοντα, λέγετε ὅτι καύσων ἔσται, καὶ γίνεται. 55 καὶ ὅταν νότον πνέοντα, λέγετε, ὅτι καύσων ἔσται·

For while you are going with your opponent to appear before the magistrate, on your way there make an effort to settle with him, so that he may not drag you before the judge, and the judge turn you over to the officer, and the officer throw you into prison.
