10:1 And rising up he came thence into the borders of Judea and beyond the Jordan; and multitudes came together again to him; and as he was accustomed he again taught them.
2 And the Pharisees came and asked him if it is lawful for a man to put away his wife, tempting him.
3 But answering he said to them: What did Moses command you?
4 They replied: Moses permitted to write a bill of divorce and put her away.
5 But Jesus said to them: Because of the hardness of your heart he wrote 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 his father and his mother,
8 And the two shall be one flesh: so no longer are they two, but one flesh.
9 What therefore God has joined together, let not man put asunder.
10 And in the house the disciples again asked him about this matter.
11 And he said to them: Whoever puts away his wife and marries another commits adultery against her;
12 And if she puts away her husband and marries another, she commits adultery.
13 And they brought to him little children that he might touch them. But the disciples rebuked those that brought them.
14 And Jesus seeing it was displeased, and said to them: Let the little children come to me; forbid them not; for to such belongs the kingdom of God.
15 Verily I say to you: Whoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, shall in no way enter into it.
16 And he took them in his arms and blessed them much, putting his hands upon them.
17 And as he went forth into the road, one ran to him, and kneeling to him asked him: Good teacher, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life?
18 But Jesus said to him: Why callest thou me good? None is good but one, God.
19 Thou knowest the commandments: Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false testimony. Thou shalt not defraud, Honor thy father and thy mother.
20 And he said to him: Teacher, all these have I kept from my youth.
21 And Jesus looking upon him loved him, and said to him: One thing thou lackest: go, sell whatever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven, and come follow me.
22 But becoming sad at that saying he went away sorrowful; for he had great possessions.
23 And looking around, Jesus says to his disciples: How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God.
24 And the disciples were amazed at his words. But Jesus again answering says to them: Children, how hard it is to enter into the kingdom of God:
25 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.
26 But they were more amazed, saying among themselves: Who then can be saved?
27 Looking on them, Jesus says: With men, impossible, but not with God; for all things are possible with God.
28 Peter began to say to him: Behold, we have left all things and followed thee.
29 Jesus replied: Verily I say to you, there is no one that has left house, or brothers, or sisters, or mother, or father, or children, or lands, for my sake and for the sake of the gospel,
30 But he shall receive a hundred fold now at this time, houses, and brothers, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and land with persecutions, and in the age to come eternal life.
31 But many first shall be last, and last first.
32 And they were in the road going up to Jerusalem; and Jesus was going before them, and they were amazed; and as they followed they were afraid. And taking the twelve aside again he began to tell them the things that were about to befall him:
33 Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of man shall be delivered to the chief of priests and the scribes, and they will condemn him to death, and deliver him to the Gentiles,
34 And they shall mock him, and spit upon him, and scourge him, and put him to death, and after three days he shall rise.
35 And there came to him James and John, the sons of Zebedee, saying to him: Teacher, we wish that thou wouldst do for us whatever we ask of thee.
36 And he said to them: What will you that I should do for you?
37 And they said to him: Grant to us that we may sit, one on thy right hand and the other on thy left, in thy glory.
38 But Jesus said to them: You know not what you ask. Are you able to drink the cup that I drink, or be baptized with the baptism with which I am baptized?
39 They said to him: We are able. Jesus said to them: The cup that I drink you shall drink, and with the baptism with which I am baptized you shall be baptized;
40 but to sit on my right hand or on my left is not mine to give, but it shall be given to those for whom it has been prepared.
41 And when the ten heard they began to be displeased with James and John.
42 And calling them to him, Jesus says to them: You know that those who are accounted to rule the Gentiles exercise lordship over them, and their great men exercise authority over them.
43 Not so however is it among you; but whoever will become great among you, shall be your minister,
44 And whoever of you will become first, shall be servant of all.
45 For the Son of man came not to be ministered to, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.
46 And they come to Jericho. And as he went out from Jericho with his disciples and a great multitude, Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, a blind beggar, was sitting by the road.
47 And hearing that it was Jesus the Nazarene, he began to cry out and say: Son of David, Jesus, have mercy on me.
48 And many rebuked him that he should be silent; but he cried much more: Son of David, have mercy on me.
49 And Jesus stood and said: Call him. And they called the blind man, saying to him: Take courage, rise, he calls thee.
50 And throwing aside the mantle, he sprang up and came to Jesus.
51 And answering him, Jesus said: What wilt thou that I shall do for thee? And the blind man said to him: Rabboni, that I may receive sight.
52 Jesus said to him: Go, thy faith has saved thee. And he immediately received sight, and followed him in the way.
