A House Divided

I came to cast fire upon the earth; and would it was already kindled!

I have a baptism to perform; and will be constrained until it is accomplished!

Do you think I have come to give peace on earth? No, I tell you, but rather division; henceforth in one house there will be five divided, three against two and two against three; 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. 5, 3 and 2

When you see a cloud rising in the west, you say at once, A shower is coming; and so it happens. And when you see the south wind blowing, you say, `There will be scorching heat'; and it happens.

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? And why do you not judge for yourselves what is right?

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.

I tell you, you will never get out till you have paid the very last copper.

In your house, Repent before judgement falls.
