Mark 10:17-31

NLT 17 As he was starting out on a trip, a man came running up to Jesus, knelt down, and asked, "Good Teacher, what should I do to get eternal life?" NIV 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?" NLT 18 "Why do you call me good?" Jesus asked. "Only God is truly good. NIV 18 "Why do you call me good?" Jesus answered. "No one is good--except God alone. NLT 19 But as for your question, you know the commandments: 'Do not murder. Do not commit adultery. Do not steal. Do not testify falsely. Do not cheat. Honor your father and mother.' " NIV 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.' " NLT 20 "Teacher," the man replied, "I've obeyed all these commandments since I was a child." NIV 20 "Teacher," he declared, "all these I have kept since I was a boy." NLT 21 Jesus felt genuine love for this man as he looked at him. "You lack only one thing," he told him. "Go and sell all you have and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me." NIV 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." NLT 22 At this, the man's face fell, and he went sadly away because he had many possessions. NIV 22 At this the man's face fell. He went away sad, because he had great wealth. NLT 23 Jesus looked around and said to his disciples, "How hard it is for rich people to get into the Kingdom of God!" NIV 23 Jesus looked around and said to his disciples, "How hard it is for the rich to enter the kingdom of God!" NLT 24 This amazed them. But Jesus said again, "Dear children, it is very hard to get into the Kingdom of God. NIV 24 The disciples were amazed at his words. But Jesus said again, "Children, how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God! NLT 25 It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the Kingdom of God!" NIV 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." NLT 26 The disciples were astounded. "Then who in the world can be saved?" they asked. NIV 26 The disciples were even more amazed, and said to each other, "Who then can be saved?" NLT 27 Jesus looked at them intently and said, "Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But not with God. Everything is possible with God." NIV 27 Jesus looked at them and said, "With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God." NLT 28 Then Peter began to mention all that he and the other disciples had left behind. "We've given up everything to follow you," he said. NIV 28 Peter said to him, "We have left everything to follow you!" NLT 29 And Jesus replied, "I assure you that everyone who has given up house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or property, for my sake and for the Good News, NIV 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 NLT 30 will receive now in return, a hundred times over, houses, brothers, sisters, mothers, children, and property -- with persecutions. And in the world to come they will have eternal life. NIV 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. NLT 31 But many who seem to be important now will be the least important then, and those who are considered least here will be the greatest then." NIV 31 But many who are first will be last, and the last first."
