1 And it came to
pass, that when Jesus had finished these sayings, he departed
from Galilee, and came into the coasts of Judaea beyond Jordan;
2 And great multitudes followed him; and he healed them there.
3 The Pharisees also came unto him, tempting him, and saying
unto him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every
4 And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that
he which made them at the beginning made them male and female,
5 And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother,
and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?
6 Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore
God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.
7 They say unto him, Why did Moses then command to give a writing
of divorcement, and to put her away?
8 He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your
hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning
it was not so.
9 And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except
it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery:
and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.
10 His disciples say unto him, If the case of the man be so
with his wife, it is not good to marry.
11 But he said unto them, All men cannot receive this saying,
save they to whom it is given.
12 For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their
mother's womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs
of men: and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs
for the kingdom of heaven's sake. He that is able to receive
it, let him receive it.
13 Then were there brought unto him little children, that he
should put his hands on them, and pray: and the disciples rebuked
14 But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not,
to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.
15 And he laid his hands on them, and departed thence.
16 And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what
good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?
17 And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is
none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into
life, keep the commandments.
18 He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder,
Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt
not bear false witness,
19 Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy
neighbour as thyself.
20 The young man saith unto him, All these things have I kept
from my youth up: what lack I yet?
21 Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell
that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure
in heaven: and come and follow me.
22 But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful:
for he had great possessions.
23 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you,
That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven.
24 And again I say unto you, It 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.
25 When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed,
saying, Who then can be saved?
26 But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this
is impossible; but with God all things are possible.
27 Then answered Peter and said unto him, Behold, we have forsaken
all, and followed thee; what shall we have therefore?
28 And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye
which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of
man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit
upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
29 And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or
sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands,
for my name's sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall
inherit everlasting life.
30 But many that are first shall be last; and the last shall
1 For the kingdom
of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which went
out early in the morning to hire labourers into his vineyard.
2 And when he had agreed with the labourers for a penny a day,
he sent them into his vineyard.
3 And he went out about the third hour, and saw others standing
idle in the marketplace,
4 And said unto them; Go ye also into the vineyard, and whatsoever
is right I will give you. And they went their way.
5 Again he went out about the sixth and ninth hour, and did
6 And about the eleventh hour he went out, and found others
standing idle, and saith unto them, Why stand ye here all the
7 They say unto him, Because no man hath hired us. He saith
unto them, Go ye also into the vineyard; and whatsoever is right,
that shall ye receive.
8 So when even was come, the lord of the vineyard saith unto
his steward, Call the labourers, and give them their hire, beginning
from the last unto the first.
9 And when they came that were hired about the eleventh hour,
they received every man a penny.
10 But when the first came, they supposed that they should have
received more; and they likewise received every man a penny.
11 And when they had received it, they murmured against the
goodman of the house,
12 Saying, These last have wrought but one hour, and thou hast
made them equal unto us, which have borne the burden and heat
of the day.
13 But he answered one of them, and said, Friend, I do thee
no wrong: didst not thou agree with me for a penny?
14 Take that thine is, and go thy way: I will give unto this
last, even as unto thee.
15 Is it not lawful for me to do what I will with mine own?
Is thine eye evil, because I am good?
16 So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many
be called, but few chosen.
17 And Jesus going up to Jerusalem took the twelve disciples
apart in the way, and said unto them,
18 Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man shall be
betrayed unto the chief priests and unto the scribes, and they
shall condemn him to death,
19 And shall deliver him to the Gentiles to mock, and to scourge,
and to crucify him: and the third day he shall rise again.
20 Then came to him the mother of Zebedee's children with her
sons, worshipping him, and desiring a certain thing of him.
21 And he said unto her, What wilt thou? She saith unto him,
Grant that these my two sons may sit, the one on thy right hand,
and the other on the left, in thy kingdom.
22 But Jesus answered and said, Ye know not what ye ask. Are
ye able to drink of the cup that I shall drink of, and to be
baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with? They say
unto him, We are able.
23 And he saith unto them, Ye shall drink indeed of my cup,
and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with: but
to sit on my right hand, and on my left, is not mine to give,
but it shall be given to them for whom it is prepared of my
24 And when the ten heard it, they were moved with indignation
against the two brethren.
25 But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Ye know that the
princes of the Gentiles exercise dominion over them, and they
that are great exercise authority upon them.
26 But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be great
among you, let him be your minister;
27 And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant:
28 Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but
to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.
29 And as they departed from Jericho, a great multitude followed
30 And, behold, two blind men sitting by the way side, when
they heard that Jesus passed by, cried out, saying, Have mercy
on us, O Lord, thou Son of David.
31 And the multitude rebuked them, because they should hold
their peace: but they cried the more, saying, Have mercy on
us, O Lord, thou Son of David.
32 And Jesus stood still, and called them, and said, What will
ye that I shall do unto you?
33 They say unto him, Lord, that our eyes may be opened.
34 So Jesus had compassion on them, and touched their eyes:
and immediately their eyes received sight, and they followed
