Again crowds of people came to him, and as was his custom, he taught them.

4 They said, "Moses allowed a man to write a divorce certificate and to divorce his wife." 4 They said, "Moses permitted a man to write a certificate of divorce and send her away."

10 Inside the house, the disciples asked him again about this. 10 When they were in the house again, the disciples asked Jesus about this.
11 He said to them, "Whoever divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery against her; 11 He answered, "Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery against her.
12 and if a wife divorces her husband and marries another, she commits adultery." 12 And if she divorces her husband and marries another man, she commits adultery."
13 People were bringing children to Jesus so that he would bless them. But the disciples scolded them. 13 People were bringing little children to Jesus to have him touch them, but the disciples rebuked them.
14 When Jesus saw this, he grew angry and said to them, "Allow the children to come to me. Don't forbid them, because God's kingdom belongs to people like these children. 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 I assure you that whoever doesn't welcome God's kingdom like a child will never 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 hugged the children and blessed them. 16 And he took the children in his arms, put his hands on them and blessed them.
17 As Jesus continued down the road, a man ran up, knelt before him, and asked, "Good Teacher, what must I do to obtain eternal life?" 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 Jesus replied, "Why do you call me good? No one is good except the one God. 18 "Why do you call me good?" Jesus answered. "No one is good--except God alone.
19 You know the commandments: Don't commit murder. Don't commit adultery. Don't steal. Don't give false testimony. Don't cheat.

20 "Teacher," he responded, "I've kept all of these things since I was a boy." 20 "Teacher," he declared, "all these I have kept since I was a boy."
21 Jesus looked at him carefully and loved him. He said, "You are lacking one thing. Go, sell what you own, and give the money to the poor. Then you will have treasure in heaven. And come, follow me." 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 But the man was dismayed at this statement and went away saddened, because he had many possessions. 22 At this the man's face fell. He went away sad, because he had great wealth.
23 Looking around, Jesus said to his disciples, "It will be very hard for the wealthy to enter God's kingdom!" 23 Jesus looked around and said to his disciples, "How hard it is for the rich to enter the kingdom of God!"
24 His words startled the disciples, so Jesus told them again, "Children, it's difficult to enter God's kingdom! 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's easier for a camel to squeeze through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter God's kingdom." 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 shocked even more and said to each other, "Then who can be saved?" 26 The disciples were even more amazed, and said to each other, "Who then can be saved?"
27 Jesus looked at them carefully and said, "It's impossible with human beings, but not with God. All things are possible for God." 27 Jesus looked at them and said, "With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God."

30 will receive one hundred times as much now in this life—houses, brothers, sisters, mothers, children, and farms (with harassment)—and in the coming age, eternal life. 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 first will be last. And many who are last will be first." 31 But many who are first will be last, and the last first."
32 Jesus and his disciples were on the road, going up to Jerusalem, with Jesus in the lead. The disciples were amazed while the others following behind were afraid. Taking the Twelve aside again, he told 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 "Look!" he said. "We're going up to Jerusalem. The Human One will be handed over to the chief priests and the legal experts. They will condemn him to death and 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 ridicule him, spit on him, torture him, and kill him. After three days, he will rise up." 34 who will mock him and spit on him, flog him and kill him. Three days later he will rise."
35 James and John, Zebedee's sons, came to Jesus and said, "Teacher, we want you to do for us whatever we ask." 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 do you want me to do for you?" he asked. 36 "What do you want me to do for you?" he asked.
37 They said, "Allow one of us to sit on your right and the other on your left when you enter your glory." 37 They replied, "Let one of us sit at your right and the other at your left in your glory."
38 Jesus replied, "You don't know what you're asking! Can you drink the cup I drink or receive the baptism I receive?" 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 can," they answered. Jesus said, "You will drink the cup I drink and receive the baptism I receive, 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 to sit at my right or left hand isn't mine to give. It belongs to those for whom it has been prepared." 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 Now when the other ten disciples heard about this, they became angry with James and John. 41 When the ten heard about this, they became indignant with James and John.
42 Jesus called them over and said, "You know that the ones who are considered the rulers by the Gentiles show off their authority over them and their high-ranking officials order them around. 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 that's not the way it will be with you. Whoever wants to be great among you will be your servant. 43 Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant,
44 Whoever wants to be first among you will be the slave of all, 44 and whoever wants to be first must be slave of all.
45 for the Human One didn't come to be served but rather to serve and to give his life to liberate many 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 Jesus and his followers came into Jericho. As Jesus was leaving Jericho, together with his disciples and a sizable crowd, a blind beggar named Bartimaeus, Timaeus' son, was sitting beside the road. 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 When he heard that Jesus of Nazareth was there, he began to shout, "Jesus, Son of David, show me mercy!" 47 When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to shout, "Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!"
48 Many scolded him, telling him to be quiet, but he shouted even louder, "Son of David, show me mercy!" 48 Many rebuked him and told him to be quiet, but he shouted all the more, "Son of David, have mercy on me!"
49 Jesus stopped and said, "Call him forward." They called the blind man, "Be encouraged! Get up! He's 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 Throwing his coat to the side, he jumped up and came to Jesus. 50 Throwing his cloak aside, he jumped to his feet and came to Jesus.
51 Jesus asked him, "What do you want me to do for you?" The blind man said, "Teacher, I want to see." 51 "What do you want me to do for you?" Jesus asked him. The blind man said, "Rabbi, I want to see."
52 Jesus said, "Go, your faith has healed you." At once he was able to see, and he began to follow Jesus on the way. 52 "Go," said Jesus, "your faith has healed you." Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus along the road.
