17 As he was going forth into the way, one ran to him, kneeled to him, and asked him, "Good Teacher, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life?"
18 Yeshua said to him, "Why do you call me good? No one is good except one -- God.
19 You know the mitzvot: 'Do not murder,' 'Do not commit adultery,' 'Do not steal,' 'Do not give false testimony,' 'Do not defraud,' 'Honor your father and mother.'"
20 He said to him, "Teacher, I have observed all these things from my youth."
21 Yeshua looking at him loved him, and said to him, "One thing you lack. Go, sell whatever you have, and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me, taking up the cross."
22 But his face fell at that saying, and he went away sorrowful, for he was one who had great possessions.
23 Yeshua looked around, and said to his talmidim, "How difficult it is for those who have riches to enter into the kingdom of God!"
24 The talmidim were amazed at his words. But Yeshua answered again, "Children, how hard is it for those who trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God!
25 It is easier for a camel to go through a needle's eye than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God."
26 They were exceedingly astonished, saying to him, "Then who can be saved?"
27 Yeshua, looking at them, said, "With men it is impossible, but not with God, for all things are possible with God."
28 Kefa began to tell him, "Behold, we have left all, and have followed you."
29 Yeshua said, "Most assuredly I tell you, there is no one who has left house, or brothers, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or land, for my sake, and for the Good News's sake,
30 but he will receive one hundred times now in this time, houses, brothers, sisters, mothers, children, and land, with persecutions; and in the age to come eternal life.
31 But many who are first will be last; and the last first."
