10 And from thence arising he cometh into the bounds of Judaea and beyond the Jordan,—and there come together again multitudes unto him, and as he had been wont again was he teaching them.
2 And Pharisees coming near were questioning him—Whether it is allowed a husband to divorce a wife, testing him.
3 But he answering said unto them—What unto you did Moses command?
4 And they said—Moses permitted to write a roll of dismissal, and to divorce.
5 But Jesus said unto them—In view of your hardness of heart wrote he for you this commandment;
6 But from the beginning of creation Male and female made he [them];
7 For this cause shall a man leave behind his father and mother,
8 and the two shall become one flesh; so that no longer are they two, but one flesh.
9 What then God hath yoked together let a man not put asunder.
10 And [coming] into the house again the disciples concerning this were questioning him;
11 and he saith unto them—Whosoever shall divorce his wife and marry another committeth adultery against her;
12 And if she divorcing her husband, marry another she committeth adultery.
13 And they were bringing unto him children, that he might touch them,—the disciples however were rebuking them.
14 But Jesus seeing it was greatly displeased, and said unto them—Suffer the children to come unto me,—do not hinder them; For of such is the kingdom of God.
15 Verily I say unto you—Whosoever shall not welcome the kingdom of God as a child in nowise shall enter thereinto.
16 And folding them in his arms he was blessing them, having laid his hands upon them.
17 And as he was going forth into a road one running and kneeling before him was questioning him—Good Teacher! what shall I do that life age-abiding I may inherit?
18 And Jesus said unto him—Why callest thou me good? None is good save one—God.
19 The commandments thou knowest,—Do not commit murder, Do not commit adultery, Do not steal; Do not bear false witness, Do not defraud, Honour thy father and mother.
20 And he said unto him—Teacher! all these things have I kept from my youth.
21 And Jesus looking at him loved him, and said unto him—One thing unto thee is wanting;—Withdraw! whatsoever thou hast sell, and give unto [the] destitute,—And thou shalt have treasure in heaven; And come! be following me.
22 And he becoming gloomy because of the word departed sorrowing, for he was holding many possessions.
23 And looking around Jesus saith unto his disciples—With what difficulty shall they who have money enter into the kingdom of God!
24 And the disciples were in amazement because of the words. But Jesus again answering saith unto them—Children! how difficult it is to enter into the kingdom of God!
25 It is easier for a camel through the eye of a needle to pass, than for a rich man into the kingdom of God to enter.
26 And they were being exceedingly struck with astonishment, saying unto him—Who then can be saved?
27 Looking at them Jesus saith—With men impossible, but not with God; for all things are possible with God.
28 Peter began to be saying unto him—Lo! we have left all and followed thee!
29 Jesus said—Verily I say unto you—There is no one who hath left house or brethren or sisters, or mother or father or children, or lands for the sake of me and [for the sake of] the glad-message
30 who shall not receive a hundredfold now in this season houses and brethren and sisters, and mothers and children, and lands,—with persecutions and in the age that is coming life age-abiding.
31 But many shall be—First-last, and [the] Last-first.
32 Now they were in the way going up unto Jerusalem, and Jesus was going on before them,—and they were in amazement; and they who followed were in fear. And taking unto himself again the twelve he began to be saying unto them, as to the things about to befall him—
33 Lo! we are going up unto Jerusalem; And the Son of Man will be delivered up unto the Chief-priests and the Scribes,—And they will condemn him to death, And deliver him up unto the nations;
34 And they will mock him and spit upon him and scourge him, and slay;—And after three days will he arise.
35 And there come near unto him James and John, the [two] sons of Zebedee,—saying unto him—Teacher! we desire That whatsoever we shall ask thee thou wilt do for us.
36 But he said unto them—What desire ye I should do for you?
37 And they said unto him—Grant us that one on thy right hand, and one on thy left we may sit in thy glory.
38 But Jesus said unto them—Ye know not what ye are asking: Are ye able to drink the cup that I am to drink? Or to be immersed with the immersion wherewith I am to be immersed?
39 And they said unto him—We are able. And Jesus said unto them—The cup which I am to drink ye shall drink, And with the immersion wherewith I am to be immersed shall ye be immersed;
40 But to sit on my right hand and on my left is not mine to give, except unto them for whom it hath been prepared.
41 And the ten hearing began to be sorely displeased concerning James and John.
42 And Jesus calling them near saith unto them—Ye know that they who think to rule the nations lord it over them, And their great ones wield authority over them;
43 But not so it is among you. But whosoever desireth to become great among you shall be your minister,
44 And whosoever desireth among you to be first shall be servant of all;
45 For even the Son of Man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister,—and to give his life a ransom instead of many.
46 And they come into Jericho. And as he was journeying forth from Jericho and his disciples, and a considerable multitude the son of Timaeus, blind Bar-Timaeus, a beggar, was sitting beside the road.
47 And hearing that it was Jesus the Nazarene he began to be crying aloud and saying—O Son of David! Jesus! have mercy on me.
48 And many were rebuking him that he might hold his peace; but he so much the more was crying aloud—O Son of David! have mercy on me.
49 And coming to a stand Jesus said—Call him! And they call the blind man, saying unto him—Take courage! rise! he calleth thee!
50 And he throwing off his mantle—springing to his feet came unto Jesus.
51 And answering him Jesus said—What desirest thou I should do for thee? And the blind man said unto him—Rabboni! that I may recover sight.
52 And Jesus said unto him—Go thy way! thy faith hath saved thee. And straightway he recovered sight, and was following him in the road.
