They were on the way, going up to Yerushalayim; and Yeshua was going in front of them, and they were amazed; and those who followed were afraid. He again took the twelve, and began to tell them the things that were going to happen to him.
"Behold, we are going up to Yerushalayim. The Son of Man will be delivered to the chief Kohanim and the Sofrim. They will condemn him to death, and will deliver him to the Goyim.
They will mock him, spit on him, scourge him, and kill him. On the third day he will rise again."
Ya`akov and Yochanan, the sons of Zavdai, came near to him, saying, "Teacher, we want you to do for us whatever we will ask."
He said to them, "What do you want me to do for you?"
They said to him, "Grant to us that we may sit, one at your right hand, and one at your left hand, in your glory."
But Yeshua said to them, "You don't know what you ask. Are you able to drink the cup that I drink, and to be immersed with the immersion that I am immersed with?"
They said to him, "We are able." Yeshua said to them, "You shall indeed drink the cup that I drink, and you shall be immersed with the immersion that I am immersed with;
but to sit at my right hand and at my left hand is not mine to give, but for whom it has been prepared."
When the ten heard it, they began to be moved with indignation towards Ya`akov and Yochanan.
Yeshua summoned them, and said to them, "You know that they who are recognized as rulers over the Goyim lord it over them, and their great ones exercise authority over them.
But it shall not be so among you, but whoever wants to become great among you shall be your servant.
Whoever of you wants to become first among you, shall be servant of all.
For the Son of Man also came not to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many."
