|And he also said to the crowds: “When you see a cloud rising from the setting of the sun, immediately you say, ‘A rain cloud is coming.’ And so it does.
|And when a south wind is blowing, you say, ‘It will be hot.’ And so it is.
|You hypocrites! You discern the face of the heavens, and of the earth, yet how is it that you do not discern this time?
|And why do you not, even among yourselves, judge what is just?
|So, when you are going with your adversary to the ruler, while you are on the way, make an effort to be freed from him, lest perhaps he may lead you to the judge, and the judge may deliver you to the officer, and the officer may cast you into prison.
|I tell you, you will not depart from there, until you have paid the very last coin.”
