Mark 10:17-31

NLT 17 As Jesus was starting out on his way to Jerusalem, a man came running up to him, knelt down, and asked, “Good Teacher, what must I do to inherit 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 to answer your question, you know the commandments: ‘You must not murder. You must not commit adultery. You must not steal. You must not testify falsely. You must not cheat anyone. 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 young.” NIV 20 "Teacher," he declared, "all these I have kept since I was a boy." NLT 21 Looking at the man, Jesus felt genuine love for him. “There is still one thing you haven’t done,” he told him. “Go and sell all your possessions 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 away sad, for 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 the rich to enter 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 enter 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 In fact, 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 speak up. “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 “Yes,” Jesus replied, “and 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 as many houses, brothers, sisters, mothers, children, and property—along with persecution. And in the world to come that person 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 are the greatest now will be least important then, and those who seem least important now will be the greatest then. ” NIV 31 But many who are first will be last, and the last first."
