A Rich Young Man

18 And a certain ruler asked him, saying, "Good Teacher, [by]a doing what will I inherit eternal life?" 19 And Jesus said to him, "Why do you call me good? No one [is] good except God alone. 20 You know the commandments: 'Do not commit adultery, do not murder, do not steal, do not give false testimony, honor your father and mother.'"b 21 And he said, "All these I have observed from myc youth." 22 And [when he]d heard [this],e Jesus said to him, "{You still lack one thing}:f Sell all that you have, and distribute [the proceeds]g to the poor--and you will have treasure in heaven--and come, follow me." 23 But [when he]h heard these [things] he became very sad, because he was extremely wealthy. 24 And Jesus took notice of himi [and]j said, "How {difficult it is for}k those who possess wealth to enter into the kingdom of God! 25 For it is easier [for] a camel to go through the eye of a needle than [for] a rich person to enter into the kingdom of God. 26 So those who heard [this]l said, "And who can be saved?" 27 But he said, "[What is] impossible with men is possible with God." 28 And Peter said, "Behold, we have left {all that is ours}m [and]n followed you." 29 And he said to them, "Truly I say to you that there is no one who has left house or wife or brothers or parents or children on account of the kingdom of God, 30 who will not receive many times more in this time and in the age to come, eternal life."
