Matthew 20 VUL/NIV - Online Parallel Bible

The Latin Vulgate (VUL) New International Version (NIV)
1 simile est enim regnum caelorum homini patri familias qui exiit primo mane conducere operarios in vineam suam 1 "For the kingdom of heaven is like a landowner who went out early in the morning to hire men to work in his vineyard.
2 conventione autem facta cum operariis ex denario diurno misit eos in vineam suam 2 He agreed to pay them a denarius for the day and sent them into his vineyard.
3 et egressus circa horam tertiam vidit alios stantes in foro otiosos 3 "About the third hour he went out and saw others standing in the marketplace doing nothing.
4 et illis dixit ite et vos in vineam et quod iustum fuerit dabo vobis 4 He told them, 'You also go and work in my vineyard, and I will pay you whatever is right.'
5 illi autem abierunt iterum autem exiit circa sextam et nonam horam et fecit similiter 5 So they went. "He went out again about the sixth hour and the ninth hour and did the same thing.
6 circa undecimam vero exiit et invenit alios stantes et dicit illis quid hic statis tota die otiosi 6 About the eleventh hour he went out and found still others standing around. He asked them, 'Why have you been standing here all day long doing nothing?'
7 dicunt ei quia nemo nos conduxit dicit illis ite et vos in vineam 7 " 'Because no one has hired us,' they answered. "He said to them, 'You also go and work in my vineyard.'
8 cum sero autem factum esset dicit dominus vineae procuratori suo voca operarios et redde illis mercedem incipiens a novissimis usque ad primos 8 "When evening came, the owner of the vineyard said to his foreman, 'Call the workers and pay them their wages, beginning with the last ones hired and going on to the first.'
9 cum venissent ergo qui circa undecimam horam venerant acceperunt singulos denarios 9 "The workers who were hired about the eleventh hour came and each received a denarius.
10 venientes autem et primi arbitrati sunt quod plus essent accepturi acceperunt autem et ipsi singulos denarios 10 So when those came who were hired first, they expected to receive more. But each one of them also received a denarius.
11 et accipientes murmurabant adversus patrem familias 11 When they received it, they began to grumble against the landowner.
12 dicentes hii novissimi una hora fecerunt et pares illos nobis fecisti qui portavimus pondus diei et aestus 12 'These men who were hired last worked only one hour,' they said, 'and you have made them equal to us who have borne the burden of the work and the heat of the day.'
13 at ille respondens uni eorum dixit amice non facio tibi iniuriam nonne ex denario convenisti mecum 13 "But he answered one of them, 'Friend, I am not being unfair to you. Didn't you agree to work for a denarius?
14 tolle quod tuum est et vade volo autem et huic novissimo dare sicut et tibi 14 Take your pay and go. I want to give the man who was hired last the same as I gave you.
15 aut non licet mihi quod volo facere an oculus tuus nequam est quia ego bonus sum 15 Don't I have the right to do what I want with my own money? Or are you envious because I am generous?'
16 sic erunt novissimi primi et primi novissimi multi sunt enim vocati pauci autem electi 16 "So the last will be first, and the first will be last."
17 et ascendens Iesus Hierosolymam adsumpsit duodecim discipulos secreto et ait illis 17 Now as Jesus was going up to Jerusalem, he took the twelve disciples aside and said to them,
18 ecce ascendimus Hierosolymam et Filius hominis tradetur principibus sacerdotum et scribis et condemnabunt eum morte 18 "We are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be betrayed to the chief priests and the teachers of the law. They will condemn him to death
19 et tradent eum gentibus ad deludendum et flagellandum et crucifigendum et tertia die resurget 19 and will turn him over to the Gentiles to be mocked and flogged and crucified. On the third day he will be raised to life!"
20 tunc accessit ad eum mater filiorum Zebedaei cum filiis suis adorans et petens aliquid ab eo 20 Then the mother of Zebedee's sons came to Jesus with her sons and, kneeling down, asked a favor of him.
21 qui dixit ei quid vis ait illi dic ut sedeant hii duo filii mei unus ad dexteram tuam et unus ad sinistram in regno tuo 21 "What is it you want?" he asked. She said, "Grant that one of these two sons of mine may sit at your right and the other at your left in your kingdom."
22 respondens autem Iesus dixit nescitis quid petatis potestis bibere calicem quem ego bibiturus sum dicunt ei possumus 22 "You don't know what you are asking," Jesus said to them. "Can you drink the cup I am going to drink?" "We can," they answered.
23 ait illis calicem quidem meum bibetis sedere autem ad dexteram meam et sinistram non est meum dare vobis sed quibus paratum est a Patre meo 23 Jesus said to them, "You will indeed drink from my cup, 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 by my Father."
24 et audientes decem indignati sunt de duobus fratribus 24 When the ten heard about this, they were indignant with the two brothers.
25 Iesus autem vocavit eos ad se et ait scitis quia principes gentium dominantur eorum et qui maiores sunt potestatem exercent in eos 25 Jesus called them together and said, "You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials exercise authority over them.
26 non ita erit inter vos sed quicumque voluerit inter vos maior fieri sit vester minister 26 Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant,
27 et qui voluerit inter vos primus esse erit vester servus 27 and whoever wants to be first must be your slave--
28 sicut Filius hominis non venit ministrari sed ministrare et dare animam suam redemptionem pro multis 28 just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many."
29 et egredientibus eis ab Hiericho secuta est eum turba multa 29 As Jesus and his disciples were leaving Jericho, a large crowd followed him.
30 et ecce duo caeci sedentes secus viam audierunt quia Iesus transiret et clamaverunt dicentes Domine miserere nostri Fili David 30 Two blind men were sitting by the roadside, and when they heard that Jesus was going by, they shouted, "Lord, Son of David, have mercy on us!"
31 turba autem increpabat eos ut tacerent at illi magis clamabant dicentes Domine miserere nostri Fili David 31 The crowd rebuked them and told them to be quiet, but they shouted all the louder, "Lord, Son of David, have mercy on us!"
32 et stetit Iesus et vocavit eos et ait quid vultis ut faciam vobis 32 Jesus stopped and called them. "What do you want me to do for you?" he asked.
33 dicunt illi Domine ut aperiantur oculi nostri 33 "Lord," they answered, "we want our sight."
34 misertus autem eorum Iesus tetigit oculos eorum et confestim viderunt et secuti sunt eum 34 Jesus had compassion on them and touched their eyes. Immediately they received their sight and followed him.
