47 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. * 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.

49 I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I, if it be already kindled ? I have a baptism to be baptized with; and how am I straitened till it be accomplished !

** And he said also to the people, When ye see a cloud rise out of the west, straightway ye say, There cometh a shower; and so it is.
