New Revised Standard (NRS) New International Version (NIV)
17 As he was setting out on a journey, a man ran up and knelt before him, and asked him, "Good Teacher, what must I do to inherit 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 said to him, "Why do you call me good? No one is good but God alone. 18 "Why do you call me good?" Jesus answered. "No one is good--except God alone.
19 You know the commandments: "You shall not murder; You shall not commit adultery; You shall not steal; You shall not bear false witness; You shall not defraud; Honor your father and 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 He said to him, "Teacher, I have kept all these since my youth." 20 "Teacher," he declared, "all these I have kept since I was a boy."
21 Jesus, looking at him, loved him and said, "You lack one thing; go, sell what you own, and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; then 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 When he heard this, he was shocked and went away grieving, for he had many possessions. 22 At this the man's face fell. He went away sad, because he had great wealth.
23 Then Jesus looked around and said to his disciples, "How hard it will be for those who have wealth to 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 And the disciples were perplexed at these words. But Jesus said to them again, "Children, how hard it is 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 someone who is rich 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 greatly astounded and said to one another, "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 and said, "For mortals it is impossible, but not for God; for God all things are possible." 27 Jesus looked at them and said, "With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God."
28 Peter began to say to him, "Look, we have left everything and followed you." 28 Peter said to him, "We have left everything to follow you!"
29 Jesus said, "Truly I tell you, there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or fields, 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 who will not receive a hundredfold now in this age—houses, brothers and sisters, mothers and children, and fields, with persecutions—and in the age to come 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 the last will be first." 31 But many who are first will be last, and the last first."
