161And someonecame to Him and said, "Teacher, whatgoodthing shall I do that I may obtain2eternallife ?"
And He said to him, "Why are you asking Me aboutwhat is good ? There is only One who is good ; but 3if you wish to enter into life, keep the commandments."18
Then he said to Him, "Whichones ?" And Jesussaid, "4YOU SHALL NOT COMMITMURDER ; YOU SHALL NOT COMMITADULTERY ; YOU SHALL NOT STEAL ; YOU SHALL NOT BEARFALSEWITNESS ;195HONOR YOUR FATHER AND MOTHER ; and 6YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF."20
The youngmansaid to Him, "Allthesethings I have kept ; whatam I stilllacking ?"
21Jesussaid to him, "If you wish to be acomplete, go and 7sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have8treasure in heaven ; and come, follow Me."22
But when the youngmanheardthisstatement, he wentawaygrieving ; for he was one who ownedmuchproperty.
And Jesussaid to His disciples, "Truly I say to you, 9it is hard for a richman to enter the kingdom of heaven.24"Again I say to you, 10it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a richman to enter the kingdom of God."25
When the disciplesheard this, they were veryastonished and said, "Thenwhocan be saved ?"
And looking at them Jesussaid to them, "11With peoplethis is impossible, but with Godallthings are possible."

And Jesussaid to them, "Truly I say to you, that you who have followed Me, in the regenerationwhen12the Son of Man will sit on bHis gloriousthrone, 13you also shall sit upon twelvethrones, judging the twelvetribes of Israel.29"And 14everyonewho has lefthousesorbrothersorsistersorfatherormothercorchildrenorfarms for My name'ssake, will receivedmanytimes as much, and will inheriteternallife.30"15But many who are first will be last ; and the last, first.
