CLV(i) 1 And rising from thence, He is coming into the boundaries of Judea and the other side of the Jordan. And again throngs are going together to Him, and again, as He had been accustomed, He taught them." 2 And approaching, the Pharisees, trying Him, inquired of Him if it is allowed a husband to dismiss a wife." 3 Yet He, answering, said to them, "What does Moses direct you? 4 Yet they say, "Moses permits us to write a scroll of divorce, and to dismiss her." 5 And answering, Jesus said to them, "In view of your hardheartedness he writes for you this precept." 6 Yet from the beginning of creation God makes them male and female. 7 On this account a man will be leaving his father and mother and will be joined to his wife, 8 and the two will be one flesh. So that no longer are they two, but one flesh." 9 What God, then, yokes together, let not man be separating." 10 And, in the house, again His disciples inquired of Him concerning this." 11 And He is saying to them, "Whosoever should be dismissing his wife and should be marrying another is committing adultery against her." 12 And if she, dismissing her husband, should ever be marrying another, she is committing adultery." 13 And they brought to Him little children, that He should be touching them; yet the disciples rebuke them." 14 Yet, perceiving it, Jesus resents it, and said to them, "Let the little children be coming to Me, and do not forbid them, for of such is the kingdom of God." 15 Verily, I am saying to you, Whosoever should not be receiving the kingdom of God as a little child, may under no circumstances be entering into it." 16 And, clasping them in His arms, He, in benediction, is placing His hands on them." 17 And at His going out into the road, lo! one certain rich man, running toward Him and falling on his knees before Him, inquired of Him, "Good Teacher! What shall I be doing that I should be enjoying the allotment of life eonian? 18 Now Jesus said to him, "Why are you terming Me good? No one is good except One, God." 19 With the precepts you are acquainted: You should not be murdering. You should not be committing adultery. You should not be stealing. You should not be testifying falsely. You should not be cheating. 'Be honoring your father and mother.'" 20 Now he averred to Him, "Teacher, all these I maintain from my youth." 21 Now Jesus, looking at him, loves him, and said to him, "Still one thing you are wanting. Go. Whatever you have, sell, and be giving to the poor, and you will be having treasure in heaven. And hither! Follow Me, picking up the cross." 22 Yet he, being somber at the word, came away sorrowing, for he was one who has many acquisitions." 23 And, looking about, Jesus is saying to His disciples, "How squeamishly shall those who have money be entering into the kingdom of God!" 24 Now the disciples were awe-struck at His words. Yet Jesus, again answering, is saying to them, "Children, how squeamish it is for those who have confidence in money to be entering into the kingdom of God!" 25 Easier is it for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to be entering into the kingdom of God." 26 Now they were exceedingly astonished, saying to Him, "And who can be saved? 27 Now, looking at them, Jesus is saying, "With men it is impossible, but not with God, for all is possible with God." 28 Peter begins to say to Him, "Lo! we leave all and follow Thee! What, consequently, will it be to us? 29 Jesus averred to him, "Verily, I am saying to you that there is no one who leaves a house, or brothers, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or fields, on My account and on account of the evangel, 30 who should not be getting back a hundredfold now, in this era, houses and brothers and sisters and mother and father and children and fields, with persecutions, and in the coming eon, life eonian." 31 Yet many of the first shall be last, and the last first." 32 Now they were on the road, going up into Jerusalem, and Jesus was preceding them. And they were awe-struck, yet those following feared. And, again taking the twelve aside, He begins to tell them what is about to be befalling Him, 33 Lo! we are going up into Jerusalem, and the Son of Mankind will be given up to the chief priests and the scribes, and they will be condemning Him to death, and will be giving Him up to the men of the nations, 34 and will be scoffing at Him, and spitting on Him, and scourging Him, and killing Him, and after three days He will be rising." 35 And going to Him are James and John, the two sons of Zebedee, saying to Him, "Teacher, we are wanting that, whatsoever we should be requesting of Thee, Thou shouldst be doing it for us." 36 Yet He said to them, "What are you wanting Me to do for you? 37 Now they said to Him, "Grant to us that we should be seated, one at Thy right and one at Thy left, in Thy glory." 38 Yet Jesus said to them, "Not aware are you what you are requesting. Are you able to drink the cup which I am drinking, or to be baptized with the baptism with which I am being baptized? 39 Yet they say to Him, "We are able.Yet Jesus said to them, "The cup indeed which I am drinking shall you be drinking, and with the baptism with which I am being baptized shall you be baptized." 40 Yet to be seated at My right or at My left is not Mine to give, but is for whom it has been made ready by My Father." 41 And, hearing of it, the ten begin to be resentful concerning James and John." 42 And, calling them to Him, Jesus is saying to them, "You are aware that those of the nations who are presuming to be chiefs are lording it over them, and their great men are coercing them." 43 Yet not thus is it among you. But whosoever may be wanting to become great among you, will be your servant." 44 And whosoever may be wanting to be foremost among you, will be the slave of all." 45 For even the Son of Mankind came, not to be served, but to serve, and to give His soul a ransom for many." 46 And they are coming into Jericho. And at His going out from Jericho, and His disciples and a considerable throng, the son of Timeus, Bar-Timeus, blind and a beggar, sat beside the road." 47 And hearing that it is Jesus the Nazarene, he begins to cry and say, "Son of David! Jesus! Be merciful to me!" 48 And many rebuked him, that he should be silent. Yet he, much rather, cried, "Son of David, be merciful to me!" 49 And standing, Jesus said, "Summon him.And they are summoning the blind man, saying to him, "Courage! Rouse!" 50 He is summoning you.Now he, casting off his cloak, springing up, came to Jesus." 51 And answering him, Jesus said, "What do you want I shall be doing to you?Now the blind man said to Him, "Rabboni, that I should be receiving sight!Now Jesus said to him, 52 Go. Your faith has saved you.And straightway he receives sight and followed Him on the road."
