Weymouth New Testament (WNT) New International Version (NIV)
1 Soon on His feet once more, He enters the district of Judaea and crosses the Jordan: again the people flock to Him, and ere long, as was usual with Him, He was teaching them once more. 1 Jesus then left that place and went into the region of Judea and across the Jordan. Again crowds of people came to him, and as was his custom, he taught them.
2 Presently a party of Pharisees come to Him with the question--seeking to entrap Him, "May a man divorce his wife?" 2 Some Pharisees came and tested him by asking, "Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife?"
3 "What rule did Moses lay down for you?" He answered. 3 "What did Moses command you?" he replied.
4 "Moses," they said, "permitted a man to draw up a written notice of divorce, and to send his wife away." 4 They said, "Moses permitted a man to write a certificate of divorce and send her away."
5 "It was in consideration of your stubborn hearts," said Jesus, "that Moses enacted this law for you; 5 "It was because your hearts were hard that Moses wrote you this law," Jesus replied.
6 but from the beginning of the creation the rule was, `Male and female did God make them. 6 "But at the beginning of creation God 'made them male and female.'
7 For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and shall cling to his wife, 7 'For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife,
8 and the two shall be one'; so that they are two no longer, but `one.' 8 and the two will become one flesh.' So they are no longer two, but one.
9 What, therefore, God has joined together let not man separate." 9 Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate."
10 Indoors the disciples began questioning Jesus again on the same subject. 10 When they were in the house again, the disciples asked Jesus about this.
11 He replied, "Whoever divorces his wife and marries another woman, commits adultery against the first wife; 11 He answered, "Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery against her.
12 and if a woman puts away her husband and marries another man, she commits adultery." 12 And if she divorces her husband and marries another man, she commits adultery."
13 One day people were bringing young children to Jesus for Him to touch them, but the disciples interfered. 13 People were bringing little children to Jesus to have him touch them, but the disciples rebuked them.
14 Jesus, however, on seeing this, was moved to indignation, and said to them, "Let the little children come to me: do not hinder them; for to those who are childlike the Kingdom of God belongs. 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 In solemn truth I tell you that no one who does not receive the Kingdom of God like a little child will by any possibility enter it." 15 I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it."
16 Then He took them in His arms and blessed them lovingly, one by one, laying His hands upon them. 16 And he took the children in his arms, put his hands on them and blessed them.
17 As He went out to resume His journey, there came a man running up to Him, who knelt at His feet and asked, "Good Rabbi, what am I to do in order to inherit the Life of the Ages?" 17 As Jesus started on his way, a man ran up to him and fell on his knees before him. "Good teacher," he asked, "what must I do to inherit eternal life?"
18 "Why do you call me good?" asked Jesus in reply; "there is no one truly good except One--that is, God. 18 "Why do you call me good?" Jesus answered. "No one is good--except God alone.
19 You know the Commandments--`Do not murder;' `Do not commit adultery;' `Do not steal;' `Do not lie in giving evidence;' `Do not defraud;' `Honour thy father and thy mother.'" 19 You know the commandments: 'Do not murder, do not commit adultery, do not steal, do not give false testimony, do not defraud, honor your father and mother.' "
20 "Rabbi," he replied, "all these Commandments I have carefully obeyed from my youth." 20 "Teacher," he declared, "all these I have kept since I was a boy."
21 Then Jesus looked at him and loved him, and said, "One thing is lacking in you: go, sell all you possess and give the proceeds to the poor, and you shall have riches in Heaven; and come and be a follower of mine." 21 Jesus looked at him and loved him. "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 At these words his brow darkened, and he went away sad; for he was possessed of great wealth. 22 At this the man's face fell. He went away sad, because he had great wealth.
23 Then looking round on His disciples Jesus said, "With how hard a struggle will the possessors of riches enter 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 The disciples were amazed at His words. Jesus, however, said again, "Children, how hard a struggle is it for those who trust in riches to enter 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!
25 It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of God." 25 It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God."
26 They were astonished beyond measure, and said to one another, "Who then *can* be saved?" 26 The disciples were even more amazed, and said to each other, "Who then can be saved?"
27 Jesus looking on them said, "With men it is impossible, but not with God; for everything is possible with God." 27 Jesus looked at them and said, "With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God."
28 "Remember," said Peter to Him, "that we forsook everything and have become your followers." 28 Peter said to him, "We have left everything to follow you!"
29 "In solemn truth I tell you," replied Jesus, "that there is no one who has forsaken house or brothers or sisters, or mother or father, or children or lands, for my sake and for the sake of the Good News, 29 "I tell you the truth," Jesus replied, "no one who has left home or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or fields for me and the gospel
30 but will receive a hundred times as much now in this present life--houses, brothers, sisters, mothers, children, lands--and persecution with them--and in the coming age the Life of the Ages. 30 will fail to receive a hundred times as much in this present age (homes, brothers, sisters, mothers, children and fields--and with them, persecutions) and in the age to come, eternal life.
31 But many who are now first will be last, and the last, first." 31 But many who are first will be last, and the last first."
32 They were still on the road going up to Jerusalem, and Jesus was walking ahead of them; they were full of wonder, and some, though they followed, did so with fear. Then, once more calling to Him the Twelve, He began to tell them what was 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 "See," He said, "we are going up to Jerusalem, where the Son of Man will be betrayed to the High Priests and the Scribes. 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,
34 they will insult Him in cruel sport, spit on Him, scourge Him, and put Him to death; but on the third day He will rise to life again." 34 who will mock him and spit on him, flog him and kill him. Three days later he will rise."
35 Then James and John, the sons of Zabdi, came up to Him and said, "Rabbi, we wish you would grant us whatever request we make of you." 35 Then James and John, the sons of Zebedee, came to him. "Teacher," they said, "we want you to do for us whatever we ask."
36 "What would you have me do for you?" He asked. 36 "What do you want me to do for you?" he asked.
37 "Allow us," they replied, "to sit one at your right hand and the other at your left hand, in your glory." 37 They replied, "Let one of us sit at your right and the other at your left in your glory."
38 "You know not," said He, "what you are asking. Are you able to drink out of the cup from which I am to drink, or to be baptized with the baptism with which I am to be baptized?" 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 "We are able," they replied. "Out of the cup," said Jesus, "from which I am to drink you shall drink, and with the baptism with which I am to be baptized you shall be baptized; 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,
40 but as to sitting at my right hand or at my left, that is not mine to give: it will be for those for whom it is reserved." 40 but to sit at my right or left is not for me to grant. These places belong to those for whom they have been prepared."
41 The other ten, hearing of it, were at first highly indignant with James and John. 41 When the ten heard about this, they became indignant with James and John.
42 Jesus, however, called them to Him and said to them, "You are aware how those who are deemed rulers among the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great men make them feel their authority; 42 Jesus called them together and said, "You know that those who are regarded as rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials exercise authority over them.
43 but it is not to be so among you. No, whoever desires to be great among you must be your servant; 43 Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant,
44 and whoever desires to be first among you must be the bondservant of all. 44 and whoever wants to be first must be slave of all.
45 For the Son of Man also did not come to be waited upon, but to wait on others, and to give His life as the redemption-price for a multitude of people." 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 They came to Jericho; and as He was leaving that town--Himself and His disciples and a great crowd--Bartimaeus (the son of Timaeus), a blind beggar, was sitting by the way-side. 46 Then they came to Jericho. As Jesus and his disciples, together with a large crowd, were leaving the city, a blind man, Bartimaeus (that is, the Son of Timaeus), was sitting by the roadside begging.
47 Hearing that it was Jesus the Nazarene, he began to cry out, "Son of David, Jesus, have pity 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 Many angrily told him to leave off shouting; but he only cried out all the louder, "Son of David, have pity 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 Then Jesus stood still. "Call him," He said. So they called the blind man. "Cheer up," they said; "rise, 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 The man flung away his outer garment, sprang to his feet, and came to Jesus. 50 Throwing his cloak aside, he jumped to his feet and came to Jesus.
51 "What shall I do for you?" said Jesus. "Rabboni," replied the blind man, "let me recover 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 "Go," said Jesus, "your faith has cured you." Instantly he regained his sight, and followed Him along the road. 52 "Go," said Jesus, "your faith has healed you." Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus along the road.
