CLV(i) 1 And it occurred, when Jesus finishes these sayings, He withdraws from Galilee and came into the boundaries of Judea, the other side of the Jordan." 2 And vast throngs follow Him, and He cures them there." 3 And the Pharisees came to Him, trying Him, and saying, "Is it allowed one to dismiss his wife for every cause? 4 Now He, answering, said, "Did you not read that the Maker from the beginning makes them male and female, 5 and He said, 'On this account a man shall be leaving father and mother and shall be joined to his wife, and the two shall be one flesh'? 6 So that no longer are they two, but one flesh. What God, then, yokes together, let not man be separating." 7 They are saying to Him, "Why, then, does Moses direct to give a scroll of divorce and to dismiss her? 8 Jesus is saying to them, that "Moses, in view of your hardheartedness, permits you to dismiss your wives. Yet from the beginning it has not come to be thus." 9 Now I am saying to you that whoever should be dismissing his wife (not for prostitution) and should be marrying another, is committing adultery, and he who marries her who has been dismissed, is committing adultery." 10 The disciples are saying to Him, "If the cause of a man with a woman is thus, it is not expedient to marry." 11 Yet He said to them, "Not all are containing this saying, but those to whom it has been given." 12 For there are eunuchs who were born thus out of their mother's womb, and there are eunuchs who are emasculated by men, and there are eunuchs who emasculate themselves because of the kingdom of the heavens. The one able to contain it, let him contain it." 13 Then little children were brought to Him, that He may be placing His hands on them and should be praying. Yet the disciples rebuke them." 14 Yet Jesus said to them, "Let the little children be coming to Me, and do not forbid them, for of such is the kingdom of the heavens." 15 And, placing His hands on them, He went thence." 16 And lo! one coming to Him said, "Teacher, what good shall I be doing that I should be having life eonian? 17 Yet He said to him, "Why are you asking Me concerning good? One is good. Yet if you are wanting to be entering into life, keep the precepts." 18 He is saying to Him, "Which?Now Jesus said, "These: 'You shall not be murdering.' 'You shall not be committing adultery.' 'You shall not be stealing.' 'You shall not be testifying falsely.'" 19 Be honoring father and mother,' and 'You shall be loving your associate as yourself.'" 20 The youth is saying to Him, "These all I maintain. In what am I still deficient? 21 Jesus averred to him, "If you are wanting to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and be giving to the poor, and you will be having treasure in the heavens. And hither! Follow Me." 22 Now, hearing this word, the youth came away sorrowing, for he had many acquisitions." 23 Now Jesus said to His disciples, "Verily, I am saying to you that the rich squeamishly will be entering into the kingdom of the heavens." 24 Yet again, I am saying to you that it is easier for a camel to be entering through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to be entering into the kingdom of God." 25 Now, hearing it, the disciples were tremendously astonished, saying, "Who, consequently, can be saved? 26 Now, looking at them, Jesus said to them, "With men this is impossible, yet with God all is possible." 27 Then, answering, Peter said to Him, "Lo! we leave all and follow Thee. What, consequently, will it be to us? 28 Yet Jesus said to them, "Verily, I am saying to you, that you who follow Me, in the renascence whenever the Son of Mankind should be seated on the throne of His glory, you also shall sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel." 29 And everyone who leaves houses, or brothers, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or fields, on account of My name, a hundred-fold shall be getting, and shall be enjoying the allotment of life eonian." 30 Yet many of the first shall be last, and the last first."
