20:1 For the kingdom of the heavens is like a man a master of a house, who went out early in the morning to hire laborers into his vineyard.
2 And when he l had agreed with the laborers for a denarius a day, he sent them into his vineyard.
3 And he went out about the third hour, and saw others standing in the market idle,
4 and he said to them: Go you also into the vineyard, and whatever may be right I will give you.
5 And they went. And again he went out about the sixth and ninth hour, and did in like manner.
6 And about the eleventh hour he went out and found others standing, and said to them: Why do you stand here all the day idle?
7 They said to him: Because no one has hired us. He said to them: Go you also into the vineyard.
8 And when evening had come the lord of the vineyard said to his steward: Call the laborers, and pay the hire, beginning from the last even to the first.
9 And when those came who had been hired about the eleventh hour, they received each one a denarius.
10 But when those came who had been hired first, they thought that they should receive more; and they also received each one a denarius.
11 But when they received it they murmured against the master of the house,
12 saying: These the last worked one hour, and thou hast made them equal to us who bore the burden of the day, and the heat.
13 But he answered one of them and said: Friend, I do thee no wrong: didst thou not agree with I me for a denarius?
14 Take that which is thine and go. But I will give to this the last even as to thee:
15 is it not allowed me to do what I will with my own? or is thy eye evil because I am good?
16 So the last shall be first, and the first last.
17 And as Jesus went up to Jerusalem, he took the twelve aside privately, and on the way said to them:
18 Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of man shall be delivered to the chief priests and scribes, and they will condemn him to death.
19 And they will deliver him to the Gentiles, to mock, and to scourge, and to crucify; and on the third day he shall rise.
20 Then came to him the mother of the sons of Zebedee with her sons, worshipping and asking something of him.
21 And he said to her: What wilt thou? She says to him: Command that these two sons of mine may sit, one on thy right hand and one on thy left in thy kingdom.
22 But Jesus answered and said: You know not what you ask. Are you able to drink the cup that I am about to drink? They say to him: We are able.
23 He says to them: My cup indeed you shall drink, but to sit on my right and on my left, it is not mine to give this, but it shall be given to those for whom it has been prepared, by my Father.
24 But when the ten heard it, they were displeased with the two brothers.
25 But Jesus called them to him and said: You know that the rulers of the Gentiles exercise lord ship over them, and the great exercise authority over them.
26 Not so shall it be among you; but who ever will become great among you shall be your minister;
27 and whoever will be first among you, shall be your servant;
28 as the Son of man came not to be ministered to, but to minister, and give his life a ransom for many.
29 And as they went out from Jericho, a great multitude followed him.
30 And behold, two blind men sitting by the way, hearing that Jesus was passing by, cried out saying: Have mercy on us, son of David.
31 But the multitude rebuked them that they should be silent; and they cried out the more, saying: Lord, have mercy on us, son of David.
32 And Jesus stood still, and called them, and said: What will you that I should do for you?
33 They say to him: Lord, that our eyes may be opened.
34 And moved with pity Jesus touched their eyes; and they immediately received sight, and followed him.
