13 And they were bringing young children to him so that he could touch them, but the disciples rebuked them. 13 People were bringing little children to Jesus to have him touch them, but the disciples rebuked them.
14 But [when] Jesus saw [it], he was indignant, and said to them, "Let the young children come to me. Do not forbid them, {for to such belongs} the kingdom of God. 14 When Jesus saw this, he was indignant. He said to them, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.
15 Truly I say to you, whoever does not welcome the kingdom of God like a young child will never enter into it." 15 I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it."

"Good teacher," he asked, "what must I do to inherit eternal life?"
18 So Jesus said to him, "Why do you call me good? No one [is] good except God alone. 18 "Why do you call me good?" Jesus answered. "No one is good--except God alone.

"One thing you lack," he said. "Go, sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me."
22 But he looked gloomy at the statement [and] went away sorrowful, {because he had} many possessions. 22 At this the man's face fell. He went away sad, because he had great wealth.
23 And Jesus looked around [and] said to his disciples, "How {difficult it is for} those who possess wealth to enter into the kingdom of God!" 23 Jesus looked around and said to his disciples, "How hard it is for the rich to enter the kingdom of God!"
24 And the disciples were astounded at his words. But Jesus answered [and] said to them again, "Children, how difficult it is to enter into the kingdom of God! 24 The disciples were amazed at his words. But Jesus said again, "Children, how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God!

And taking aside the twelve again, he began to tell them the things that were about to happen to him: 32 They were on their way up to Jerusalem, with Jesus leading the way, and the disciples were astonished, while those who followed were afraid. Again he took the Twelve aside and told them what was going to happen to him.
33 "Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be handed over to the chief priests and the scribes, and they will condemn him to death and will hand him over to the Gentiles. 33 "We are going up to Jerusalem," he said, "and the Son of Man will be betrayed to the chief priests and teachers of the law. They will condemn him to death and will hand him over to the Gentiles,

36 And he said to them, "What do you want that I do for you?" 36 "What do you want me to do for you?" he asked.

Are you able to drink the cup that I drink, or to be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with?" 38 "You don't know what you are asking," Jesus said. "Can you drink the cup I drink or be baptized with the baptism I am baptized with?"
39 And they said to him, "We are able." So Jesus said to them, "You will drink the cup that I drink, and you will be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with, 39 "We can," they answered. Jesus said to them, "You will drink the cup I drink and be baptized with the baptism I am baptized with,

43 But it is not like this among you! But whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, 43 Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant,

45 For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life [as] a ransom for many." 45 For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many."
46 And they came to Jericho. And [as] he was setting out from Jericho along with his disciples and a large crowd, a blind beggar, Bartimaeus the son of Timaeus, was sitting beside the road. 46 Then they came to Jericho.

47 And [when he] heard that it was Jesus the Nazarene, he began to cry out and say, "Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!" 47 When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to shout, "Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!"
48 And many [people] warned him that he should be quiet. But he was crying out {even more loudly}, "Son of David, have mercy on me!" 48 Many rebuked him and told him to be quiet, but he shouted all the more, "Son of David, have mercy on me!"
49 And Jesus stopped [and] said, "Call him." And they called the blind man [and] said to him, "Have courage! Get up! He is calling you." 49 Jesus stopped and said, "Call him." So they called to the blind man, "Cheer up! On your feet! He's calling you."
50 And he threw off his cloak, jumped up, [and] came to Jesus. 50 Throwing his cloak aside, he jumped to his feet and came to Jesus.
51 And Jesus answered him [and] said, "What do you want {me to do} for you?" And the blind man said to him, "Rabboni, that I may regain [my] sight." 51 "What do you want me to do for you?" Jesus asked him. The blind man said, "Rabbi, I want to see."
52 And Jesus said to him, "Go, your faith has healed you." And immediately he regained [his] sight and began to follow him on the road. 52 "Go," said Jesus, "your faith has healed you." Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus along the road.
