And a certain ruler questioned him, saying, `Good teacher, what having done -- shall I inherit life age-during?'
And Jesus said to him, `Why me dost thou call good? no one [is] good, except One -- God;
the commands thou hast known: Thou mayest not commit adultery, Thou mayest do no murder, Thou mayest not steal, Thou mayest not bear false witness, Honour thy father and thy mother.'
And he said, `All these I did keep from my youth;'
and having heard these things, Jesus said to him, `Yet one thing to thee is lacking; all things -- as many as thou hast -- sell, and distribute to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven, and come, be following me;'
and he, having heard these things, became very sorrowful, for he was exceeding rich.
And Jesus having seen him become very sorrowful, said, `How hardly shall those having riches enter into the reign of God!
for it is easier for a camel through the eye of a needle to enter, than for a rich man into the reign of God to enter.'
And those who heard, said, `And who is able to be saved?'
and he said, `The things impossible with men are possible with God.'
And Peter said, `Lo, we left all, and did follow thee;'
and he said to them, `Verily I say to you, that there is not one who left house, or parents, or brothers, or wife, or children, for the sake of the reign of God,
who may not receive back manifold more in this time, and in the coming age, life age-during.'
