1And he arose from there, and came into the regions of Judea beyond the Jordan: and the people came unto him again; and, as his custom was, he taught them again.
2And the Pharisees came to him, and asked him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife? testing him.
3And he answered and said unto them,
What did Moses command you?
4And they said, Moses allowed a man to write a bill of divorcement, and to put her away.
5And Jesus answered and said unto them,
For the hardness of your heart he wrote you this precept.
6But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.
7For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and be joined to his wife;
8And they two shall be one flesh: so then they are no more two, but one flesh.
9What therefore God has joined together, let not man put asunder.
10And in the house his disciples asked him again of the same matter.
11And he said unto them,
Whosoever shall put away his wife, and marry another, commits adultery against her.
12And if a woman shall put away her husband, and be married to another, she commits adultery.
13And they brought young children to him, that he should touch them: and his disciples rebuked those that brought them.
14But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them,
Allow the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.
15Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein.
16And he took them up in his arms, put his hands upon them, and blessed them.
17And when he was gone forth into the way, there came one running, and kneeled to him, and asked him, Good Teacher, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life?
18And Jesus said unto him,
Why call me good? there is none good but one, that is, God.
19You know the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Defraud not, Honor your father and mother.
20And he answered and said unto him, Teacher, all these have I observed from my youth.
21Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him,
One thing you lack: go your way, sell whatsoever you have, and give to the poor, and you shall have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me.
22And he was sad at that saying, and went away grieved: for he had great possessions.
23And Jesus looked round about, and said unto his disciples,
How hard for those that have riches to enter into the kingdom of God!
24And the disciples were astonished at his words. But Jesus answered again, and said unto them,
Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God!
25It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.
26And they were astonished beyond measure, saying among themselves, Who then can be saved?
27And Jesus looking upon them said,
With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible.
28Then Peter began to say unto him, Lo, we have left all, and have followed you.
29And Jesus answered and said,
Verily I say unto you, There is no man that has left house, or brothers, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel's,
30But he shall receive a hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brothers, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life.
31But many that are first shall be last; and the last first.
32And they were on the way going up to Jerusalem; and Jesus went before them: and they were amazed; and as they followed, they were afraid. And he took again the twelve, and began to tell them what things should happen unto him,
Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man shall be delivered unto the chief priests, and unto the scribes; and they shall condemn him to death, and shall deliver him to the Gentiles:
34And they shall mock him, and shall scourge him, and shall spit upon him, and shall kill him: and the third day he shall rise again.
35And James and John, the sons of Zebedee, come unto him, saying, Teacher, we would that you should do for us whatsoever we shall desire.
36And he said unto them,
What would you that I should do for you?
37They said unto him, Grant unto us that we may sit, one on your right hand, and the other on your left hand, in your glory.
38But Jesus said unto them,
You know not what you ask: can you drink of the cup that I drink of? and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with?
39And they said unto him, We can. And Jesus said unto them,
You shall indeed drink of the cup that I drink of; and with the baptism that I am baptized shall you be baptized:
40But to sit on my right hand and on my left hand is not mine to give; but it shall be given to them for whom it is prepared.
41And when the ten heard it, they began to be much displeased with James and John.
42But Jesus called them to him, and said unto them,
You know that they who are accounted to rule over the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and their leaders exercise authority over them.
43But so shall it not be among you: but whosoever would be great among you, shall be your servant:
44And whosoever of you will be the first, shall be servant of all.
45For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.
46And they came to Jericho: and as he went out of Jericho with his disciples and a great number of people, blind Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, sat by the roadside begging.
47And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out, and say, Jesus, you son of David, have mercy on me.
48And many charged him that he should hold his peace: but he cried the more a great deal, You son of David, have mercy on me.
49And Jesus stood still, and commanded him to be called. And they called the blind man, saying unto him, Be of good comfort, rise; he calls you.
50And he, casting away his garment, rose, and came to Jesus.
51And Jesus answered and said unto him,
What will you that I should do unto you?
The blind man said unto him, Lord, that I might receive my sight.
52And Jesus said unto him,
Go your way; your faith has made you whole.
And immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way.
