 Revised Standard Version<< Luke:12 >>Novum Testamentum Graece (UBS.Ed.26)  

1 In the meantime, when so many thousands of the multitude had gathered together that they trod upon one another, he began to say to his disciples first, "Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy. A Warning against Hypocrisy Lk.12.1-3 (Judaea) - Ἐν οἷς ἐπισυναχθεισῶν τῶν μυριάδων τοῦ ὀχλου, ὡστε καταπατεῖν ἀλλήλους, ἠρξατο λέγειν πρὸς τοὺς μαθητὰς αὐτοῦ πρῶτον, Προσέχετε ἑαυτοῖς ἀπὸ τῆς ζύμης, ἡτις ἐστὶν ὑπόκ ρισις, τῶν Φαρισαίων.
2 Nothing is covered up that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known.  οὐδὲν δὲ συγκεκαλυμμένον ἐστὶν ὃ οὐκ ἀποκαλυφθήσεται, καὶ κρυπτὸν ὃ οὐ γνωσθήσεται.
3 Therefore whatever you have said in the dark shall be heard in the light, and what you have whispered in private rooms shall be proclaimed upon the housetops.  ἀνθ' ὧν ὁσα ἐν τῇ σκοτίᾳ εἰπατε ἐν τῷ φωτὶ ἀκουσθήσεται, καὶ ὃ πρὸς τὸ οὖς ἐλαλήσατε ἐν τοῖς ταμείοις κηρυχθήσεται ἐπὶ τῶν δωμάτων.
4 "I tell you, my friends, do not fear those who kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. Whom to Fear Lk.12.4-7 | Mt.10.28-31Λέγω δὲ ὑμῖν τοῖς φίλοις μου, μὴ φοβηθῆτε ἀπὸ τῶν ἀποκτεινόντων τὸ σῶμα καὶ μετὰ ταῦτα μὴ ἐχόντων περισσότερόν τι ποιῆσαι.
5 But I will warn you whom to fear: fear him who, after he has killed, has power to cast into hell [Greek: Gehenna]; yes, I tell you, fear him!  ὑποδείξω δὲ ὑμῖν τίνα φοβηθῆτε· φοβήθητε τὸν μετὰ τὸ ἀποκτεῖναι ἐχοντα ἐξουσίαν ἐμβαλεῖν εἰς τὴν γέενναν· ναί, λέγω ὑμῖν, τοῦτον φοβήθητε.
6 Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? And not one of them is forgotten before God.  οὐχὶ πέντε στρουθία πωλοῦνται ἀσσαρίων δύὸ καὶ ἓν ἐξ αὐτῶν οὐκ ἐστιν ἐπιλελησμένον ἐνώπιον τοῦ θεοῦ.
7 Why, even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not; you are of more value than many sparrows.  ἀλλὰ καὶ αἱ τρίχες τῆς κεφαλῆς ὑμῶν πᾶσαι ἠρίθμηνται. μὴ φοβεῖσθε· πολλῶν στρουθίων διαφέρετε.
8 "And I tell you, every one who acknowledges me before men, the Son of man also will acknowledge before the angels of God; Confessing Christ before Men Lk.12.8-12 | Mt.10.32-33 | Mt.12.32 | Mt.10.19-20Λέγω δὲ ὑμῖν, πᾶς ὃς ἂν ὁμολογήσῃ ἐν ἐμοὶ ἐμπροσθεν τῶν ἀνθρώπων, καὶ ὁ υἱὸς τοῦ ἀνθρώπου ὁμολογήσει ἐν αὐτῷ ἐμπροσθεν τῶν ἀγγέλων τοῦ θεοῦ·
9 but he who denies me before men will be denied before the angels of God.  ὁ δὲ ἀρνησάμενός με ἐνώπιον τῶν ἀνθρώπων ἀπαρνηθήσεται ἐνώπιον τῶν ἀγγέλων τοῦ θεοῦ.
10 And every one who speaks a word against the Son of man will be forgiven; but he who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven.  καὶ πᾶς ὃς ἐρεῖ λόγον εἰς τὸν υἱὸν τοῦ ἀνθρώπου, ἀφεθήσεται αὐτῷ· τῷ δὲ εἰς τὸ ἀγιον Πνεῦμα βλασφημήσαντι οὐκ ἀφεθήσεται.
11 And when they bring you before the synagogues and the rulers and the authorities, do not be anxious how or what you are to answer or what you are to say;  ὁταν δὲ εἰσφέρωσιν ὑμᾶς ἐπὶ τὰς συναγωγὰς καὶ τὰς ἀρχὰς καὶ τὰς ἐξουσίας, μὴ μεριμνήσητε πῶς ἢ τί ἀπολογήσησθε ἢ τί εἰπητε·
12 for the Holy Spirit will teach you in that very hour what you ought to say."  τὸ γὰρ ἀγιον Πνεῦμα διδάξει ὑμᾶς ἐν αὐτῇ τῇ ὡρᾳ ἂ δεῖ εἰπεῖν.
13 One of the multitude said to him, "Teacher, bid my brother divide the inheritance with me." The Parable of the Rich Fool Lk.12.13-21Εἶπεν δέ τις ἐκ τοῦ ὀχλου αὐτῷ, Διδάσκαλε, εἰπὲ τῷ ἀδελφῷ μου μερίσασθαι μετ' ἐμοῦ τὴν κληρονομίαν.
14 But he said to him, "Man, who made me a judge or divider over you?"  ὁ δὲ εἶπεν αὐτῷ, Ἄνθρωπε, τίς με κατέστησεν κριτὴν ἢ μεριστὴν ἐφ' ὑμᾶς;
15 And he said to them, "Take heed, and beware of all covetousness; for a man's life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions."  εἶπεν δὲ πρὸς αὐτούς, Ὁρᾶτε καὶ φυλάσσεσθε ἀπὸ πάσης πλεονεξίας, ὅτι οὐκ ἐν τῷ περισσεύειν τινὶ ἡ ζωὴ αὐτοῦ ἐστιν ἐκ τῶν ὑπαρχόντων αὐτῷ.
16 And he told them a parable, saying, "The land of a rich man brought forth plentifully;  Εἶπεν δὲ παραβολὴν πρὸς αὐτοὺς λέγων, Ἀνθρώπου τινὸς πλουσίου εὐφόρησεν ἡ χώρα.
17 and he thought to himself, 'What shall I do, for I have nowhere to store my crops?'  καὶ διελογίζετο ἐν ἑαυτῷ λέγων, Τί ποιήσω, ὅτι οὐκ ἐχω ποῦ συνάξω τοὺς καρπούς μοὺ;
18 And he said, 'I will do this: I will pull down my barns, and build larger ones; and there I will store all my grain and my goods.  καὶ εἶπεν, Τοῦτο ποιήσω· καθελῶ μου τὰς ἀποθήκας καὶ μείζονας οἰκοδομήσω, καὶ συνάξω ἐκεῖ πάντα τὸν σῖτον καὶ τὰ ἀγαθά μου,
19 And I will say to my soul, Soul, you have ample goods laid up for many years; take your ease, eat, drink, be merry.'  καὶ ἐρῶ τῇ ψυχῇ μου, Ψυχή, ἐχεις πολλὰ ἀγαθὰ κείμενα εἰς ἐτη πολλά· ἀναπαύου, φάγε, πίε, εὐφραίνου.
20 But God said to him, 'Fool! This night your soul is required of you; and the things you have prepared, whose will they be?'  εἶπεν δὲ αὐτῷ ὁ θεός, Ἄφρων, ταύτῃ τῇ νυκτὶ τὴν ψυχήν σου ἀπαιτοῦσιν ἀπὸ σοῦ· ἂ δὲ ἡτοίμασας, τίνι ἐσταὶ;
21 So is he who lays up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God."  οὑτως ὁ θησαυρίζων ἑαυτῷ καὶ μὴ εἰς θεὸν πλουτῶν.
22 And he said to [his] disciples, "Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you shall eat, nor about your body, what you shall put on. Care and Anxiety Lk.12.22-34 (Judaea) - | Mt.6.25-34Εἶπεν δὲ πρὸς τοὺς μαθητάς [αὐτοῦ], Διὰ τοῦτο λέγω ὑμῖν, μὴ μεριμνᾶτε τῇ ψυχῇ τί φάγητε, μηδὲ τῷ σώματι τί ἐνδύσησθε.
23 For life is more than food, and the body more than clothing.  ἡ γὰρ ψυχὴ πλεῖόν ἐστιν τῆς τροφῆς καὶ τὸ σῶμα τοῦ ἐνδύματος.
24 Consider the ravens: they neither sow nor reap, they have neither storehouse nor barn, and yet God feeds them. Of how much more value are you than the birds!  κατανοήσατε τοὺς κόρακας ὅτι οὐ σπείρουσιν οὐδὲ θερίζουσιν, οἷς οὐκ ἐστιν ταμεῖον οὐδὲ ἀποθήκη, καὶ ὁ θεὸς τρέφει αὐτούς· πόσῳ μᾶλλον ὑμεῖς διαφέρετε τῶν πετεινῶν.
25 And which of you by being anxious can add a cubit to his span of life [Or: to his stature]?  τίς δὲ ἐξ ὑμῶν μεριμνῶν δύναται ἐπὶ τὴν ἡλικίαν αὐτοῦ προσθεῖναι πῆχυν;
26 If then you are not able to do as small a thing as that, why are you anxious about the rest?  εἰ οὖν οὐδὲ ἐλάχιστον δύνασθε, τί περὶ τῶν λοιπῶν μεριμνᾶτὲ;
27 Consider the lilies, how they grow; they neither toil nor spin [Other ancient authorities read: Consider the lilies; they neither spin nor weave]; yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.  κατανοήσατε τὰ κρίνα πῶς αὐξάνει· οὐ κοπιᾷ οὐδὲ νήθει· λέγω δὲ ὑμῖν, οὐδὲ Σολομὼν ἐν πάσῃ τῇ δόξῃ αὐτοῦ περιεβάλετο ὡς ἓν τούτων.
28 But if God so clothes the grass which is alive in the field today and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, how much more will he clothe you, O men of little faith!  εἰ δὲ ἐν ἀγρῷ τὸν χόρτον ὀντα σήμερον καὶ αὐριον εἰς κλίβανον βαλλόμενον ὁ θεὸς οὑτως ἀμφιέζει, πόσῳ μᾶλλον ὑμᾶς, ὀλιγόπιστοι.
29 And do not seek what you are to eat and what you are to drink, nor be of anxious mind.  καὶ ὑμεῖς μὴ ζητεῖτε τί φάγητε καὶ τί πίητε, καὶ μὴ μετεωρίζεσθε·
30 For all the nations of the world seek these things; and your Father knows that you need them.  ταῦτα γὰρ πάντα τὰ ἐθνη τοῦ κόσμου ἐπιζητοῦσιν· ὑμῶν δὲ ὁ πατὴρ οἶδεν ὅτι χρῄζετε τούτων.
31 Instead, seek his [Other ancient authorities read: God's] kingdom, and these things shall be yours as well.  πλὴν ζητεῖτε τὴν βασιλείαν αὐτοῦ, καὶ ταῦτα προστεθήσεται ὑμῖν.
32 "Fear not, little flock, for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.  Μὴ φοβοῦ, τὸ μικρὸν ποίμνιον, ὅτι εὐδόκησεν ὁ πατὴρ ὑμῶν δοῦναι ὑμῖν τὴν βασιλείαν.
33 Sell your possessions, and give alms; provide yourselves with purses that do not grow old, with a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches and no moth destroys.  Πωλήσατε τὰ ὑπάρχοντα ὑμῶν καὶ δότε ἐλεημοσύνην· ποιήσατε ἑαυτοῖς βαλλάντια μὴ παλαιούμενα, θησαυρὸν ἀνέκλειπτον ἐν τοῖς οὐρανοῖς, ὁπου κλέπτης οὐκ ἐγγίζει οὐδὲ σὴς διαφθε ίρει·
34 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.  ὁπου γάρ ἐστιν ὁ θησαυρὸς ὑμῶν, ἐκεῖ καὶ ἡ καρδία ὑμῶν ἐσται.
35 "Let your loins be girded and your lamps burning, Watchful Servants Lk.12.35-48 (Judaea) - | Mt.24.45-51Ἔστωσαν ὑμῶν αἱ ὀσφύες περιεζωσμέναι καὶ οἱ λύχνοι καιόμενοι,
36 and be like men who are waiting for their master to come home from the marriage feast, so that they may open to him at once when he comes and knocks.  καὶ ὑμεῖς ὁμοιοι ἀνθρώποις προσδεχομένοις τὸν κύριον ἑαυτῶν πότε ἀναλύσῃ ἐκ τῶν γάμων, ἵνα ἐλθόντος καὶ κρούσαντος εὐθέως ἀνοίξωσιν αὐτῷ.
37 Blessed are those servants whom the master finds awake when he comes; truly, I say to you, he will gird himself and have them sit at table, and he will come and serve them.  μακάριοι οἱ δοῦλοι ἐκεῖνοι, οὓς ἐλθὼν ὁ κύριος εὑρήσει γρηγοροῦντας· ἀμὴν λέγω ὑμῖν ὅτι περιζώσεται καὶ ἀνακλινεῖ αὐτοὺς καὶ παρελθὼν διακονήσει αὐτοῖς.
38 If he comes in the second watch, or in the third, and finds them so, blessed are those servants!  κἂν ἐν τῇ δευτέρᾳ κἂν ἐν τῇ τρίτῃ φυλακῇ ἐλθῃ καὶ εὑρῃ οὑτως, μακάριοί εἰσιν ἐκεῖνοι.
39 But know this, that if the householder had known at what hour the thief was coming, he [Other ancient authorities add: would have watched and] would not have left his house to be broken into.  τοῦτο δὲ γινώσκετε ὅτι εἰ ᾐδει ὁ οἰκοδεσπότης ποίᾳ ὡρᾳ ὁ κλέπτης ἐρχεται, οὐκ ἂν ἀφῆκεν διορυχθῆναι τὸν οἶκον αὐτοῦ.
40 You also must be ready; for the Son of man is coming at an unexpected hour."  καὶ ὑμεῖς γίνεσθε ἑτοιμοι, ὅτι ᾗ ὡρᾳ οὐ δοκεῖτε ὁ υἱὸς τοῦ ἀνθρώπου ἐρχεται.
41 Peter said, "Lord, are you telling this parable for us or for all?"  Εἶπεν δὲ ὁ Πέτρος, Κύριε, πρὸς ἡμᾶς τὴν παραβολὴν ταύτην λέγεις ἢ καὶ πρὸς πάντας;
42 And the Lord said, "Who then is the faithful and wise steward, whom his master will set over his household, to give them their portion of food at the proper time?  καὶ εἶπεν ὁ κύριος, Τίς ἀρα ἐστὶν ὁ πιστὸς οἰκονόμος ὁ φρόνιμος, ὃν καταστήσει ὁ κύριος ἐπὶ τῆς θεραπείας αὐτοῦ τοῦ διδόναι ἐν καιρῷ [τὸ] σιτομέτριον;
43 Blessed is that servant whom his master when he comes will find so doing.  μακάριος ὁ δοῦλος ἐκεῖνος, ὃν ἐλθὼν ὁ κύριος αὐτοῦ εὑρήσει ποιοῦντα οὑτως·
44 Truly, I say to you, he will set him over all his possessions.  ἀληθῶς λέγω ὑμῖν ὅτι ἐπὶ πᾶσιν τοῖς ὑπάρχουσιν αὐτοῦ καταστήσει αὐτόν.
45 But if that servant says to himself, 'My master is delayed in coming,' and begins to beat the menservants and the maidservants, and to eat and drink and get drunk,  ἐὰν δὲ εἰπῃ ὁ δοῦλος ἐκεῖνος ἐν τῇ καρδίᾳ αὐτοῦ, Χρονίζει ὁ κύριός μου ἐρχεσθαι, καὶ ἀρξηται τύπτειν τοὺς παῖδας καὶ τὰς παιδίσκας, ἐσθίειν τε καὶ πίνειν καὶ μεθύσκε σθαι,
46 the master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he does not know, and will punish [Or: cut him in pieces] him, and put him with the unfaithful.  ἡξει ὁ κύριος τοῦ δούλου ἐκείνου ἐν ἡμέρᾳ ᾗ οὐ προσδοκᾷ καὶ ἐν ὡρᾳ ᾗ οὐ γινώσκει, καὶ διχοτομήσει αὐτὸν καὶ τὸ μέρος αὐτοῦ μετὰ τῶν ἀπίστων θήσει.
47 And that servant who knew his master's will, but did not make ready or act according to his will, shall receive a severe beating.  ἐκεῖνος δὲ ὁ δοῦλος ὁ γνοὺς τὸ θέλημα τοῦ κυρίου αὐτοῦ καὶ μὴ ἑτοιμάσας ἢ ποιήσας πρὸς τὸ θέλημα αὐτοῦ δαρήσεται πολλάς·
48 But he who did not know, and did what deserved a beating, shall receive a light beating. Every one to whom much is given, of him will much be required; and of him to whom men commit much they will demand the more.  ὁ δὲ μὴ γνούς, ποιήσας δὲ ἀξια πληγῶν, δαρήσεται ὀλίγας. παντὶ δὲ ᾧ ἐδόθη πολύ, πολὺ ζητηθήσεται παρ' αὐτοῦ, καὶ ᾧ παρέθεντο πολύ, περισσότερον αἰτήσουσιν αὐτόν.
49 "I came to cast fire upon the earth; and would that it were already kindled! Jesus the Cause of Division Lk.12.49-53 | Mt.10.34-36Πῦρ ἦλθον βαλεῖν ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν, καὶ τί θέλω εἰ ἠδη ἀνήφθη.
50 I have a baptism to be baptized with; and how I am constrained until it is accomplished!  βάπτισμα δὲ ἐχω βαπτισθῆναι, καὶ πῶς συνέχομαι ἑως ὁτου τελεσθῇ.
51 Do you think that I have come to give peace on earth? No, I tell you, but rather division;  δοκεῖτε ὅτι εἰρήνην παρεγενόμην δοῦναι ἐν τῇ γῇ; οὐχί, λέγω ὑμῖν, ἀλλ' ἢ διαμερισμόν.
52 for henceforth in one house there will be five divided, three against two and two against three;  ἐσονται γὰρ ἀπὸ τοῦ νῦν πέντε ἐν ἑνὶ οἰκῳ διαμεμερισμένοι, τρεῖς ἐπὶ δυσὶν καὶ δύο ἐπὶ τρισίν,
53 they will be divided, father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against her mother, mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law."  διαμερισθήσονται πατὴρ ἐπὶ υἱῷ
καὶ υἱὸς ἐπὶ πατρί,
μήτηρ ἐπὶ τὴν θυγατέρα
θυγάτηρ ἐπὶ τὴν μητέρα,
πενθερὰ ἐπὶ τὴν νύμφην αὐτῆς
καὶ νύμφη ἐπὶ τὴν πενθεράν.
54 He also said to the multitudes, "When you see [a] cloud rising in the west, you say at once, 'A shower is coming'; and so it happens. Discerning the Time Lk.12.54-56 (Judaea) - | Mt.16.2-3Ἔλεγεν δὲ καὶ τοῖς ὀχλοις, Ὅταν ἰδητε [τὴν] νεφέλην ἀνατέλλουσαν ἐπὶ δυσμῶν, εὐθέως λέγετε ὅτι Ὄμβρος ἐρχεται, καὶ γίνεται οὑτως·
55 And when you see the south wind blowing, you say, 'There will be scorching heat'; and it happens.  καὶ ὁταν νότον πνέοντα, λέγετε ὅτι Καύσων ἐσται, καὶ γίνεται.
56 You hypocrites! You know how to interpret the appearance of earth and sky; but why do you not know how to interpret the present time?  ὑποκριταί, τὸ πρόσωπον τῆς γῆς καὶ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ οἰδατε δοκιμάζειν, τὸν καιρὸν δὲ τοῦτον πῶς οὐκ οἰδατε δοκιμάζειν;
57 "And why do you not judge for yourselves what is right? Settling with Your Accuser Lk.12.57-59 | Mt.5.25-26Τί δὲ καὶ ἀφ' ἑαυτῶν οὐ κρίνετε τὸ δίκαιον;
58 As you go with your accuser before the magistrate, make an effort to settle with him on the way, lest he drag you to the judge, and the judge hand you over to the officer, and the officer put you in prison.  ὡς γὰρ ὑπάγεις μετὰ τοῦ ἀντιδίκου σου ἐπ' ἀρχοντα, ἐν τῇ ὁδῷ δὸς ἐργασίαν ἀπηλλάχθαι ἀπ' αὐτοῦ, μήποτε κατασύρῃ σε πρὸς τὸν κριτήν, καὶ ὁ κριτής σε παραδώσει τῷ πράκ τορι, καὶ ὁ πράκτωρ σε βαλεῖ εἰς φυλακήν.
59 I tell you, you will never get out till you have paid the very last copper."  λέγω σοι, οὐ μὴ ἐξέλθῃς ἐκεῖθεν ἑως καὶ τὸ ἐσχατον λεπτὸν ἀποδῷς.
