The Rich Young Ruler

18 1A ruler questioned Him, saying, "Good Teacher, what shall I do to 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, '2DO NOT COMMIT ADULTERY, DO NOT MURDER, DO NOT STEAL, DO NOT BEAR FALSE WITNESS, HONOR YOUR FATHER AND MOTHER.' " 21 And he said, "All these things I have kept from my youth." 22 When Jesus heard this, He said to him, "One thing you still lack; 3sell all that you possess and distribute it to the poor, and you shall have 4treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me." 23 But when he had heard these things, he became very sad, for he was extremely rich. 24 And Jesus looked at him and said, "5How hard it is for those who are wealthy to enter the kingdom of God! 25 "For 6it is easier for a camel to ago through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God." 26 They who heard it said, "Then who can be saved?" 27 But He said, "7The things that are impossible with people are possible with God." 28 Peter said, "Behold, 8we have left bour own homes and followed You." 29 And He said to them, "Truly I say to you, 9there is no one who has left house or wife or brothers or parents or children, for the sake of the kingdom of God, 30 who will not receive many times as much at this time and in 10the age to come, eternal life." 31 11Then He took the twelve aside and said to them, "Behold, 12we are going up to Jerusalem, and 13all things which are written through the prophets about the Son of Man will be accomplished. 32 "14For He will be chanded over to the Gentiles, and will be mocked and mistreated and spit upon, 33 and after they have scourged Him, they will kill Him; and the third day He will rise again." 34 But 15the disciples understood none of these things, and the meaning of this statement was hidden from them, and they did not comprehend the things that were said.
