Then came to him the mother of the sons of Zebedee, with her sons, doing homage, and asking something of him.
And he said to her, What wilt thou? She says to him, Speak [the word] that these my two sons may sit, one on thy right hand and one on thy left in thy kingdom.
And Jesus answering said, Ye know not what ye ask. Can ye drink the cup which *I* am about to drink? a They say to him, We are able.
[And] he says to them, Ye shall drink indeed my cup, but to sit on my right hand and on [my] left, is not mine to give, but to b those for whom it is prepared of my Father.
And the ten, having heard [of it], were indignant about the two brothers.
But Jesus having called them to [him], said, Ye know that the rulers of the nations exercise lordship over them, and the great exercise authority over them.
It shall not be thus amongst you, but whosoever will be great among you, shall be your servant;
and whosoever will be first among you, let him be your bondman;
as indeed the Son of man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life a ransom for many.
