Matthew 19:9-19

ESV 9 And I say to you: whoever divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another, commits adultery." NIV 9 I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for marital unfaithfulness, and marries another woman commits adultery." ESV 10 The disciples said to him, "If such is the case of a man with his wife, it is better not to marry." NIV 10 The disciples said to him, "If this is the situation between a husband and wife, it is better not to marry." ESV 11 But he said to them, "Not everyone can receive this saying, but only those to whom it is given. NIV 11 Jesus replied, "Not everyone can accept this word, but only those to whom it has been given. ESV 12 For there are eunuchs who have been so from birth, and there are eunuchs who have been made eunuchs by men, and there are eunuchs who have made themselves eunuchs for the sake of the kingdom of heaven. Let the one who is able to receive this receive it." NIV 12 For some are eunuchs because they were born that way; others were made that way by men; and others have renounced marriage because of the kingdom of heaven. The one who can accept this should accept it." ESV 13 Then children were brought to him that he might lay his hands on them and pray. The disciples rebuked the people, NIV 13 Then little children were brought to Jesus for him to place his hands on them and pray for them. But the disciples rebuked those who brought them. ESV 14 but Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven." NIV 14 Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." ESV 15 And he laid his hands on them and went away. NIV 15 When he had placed his hands on them, he went on from there. ESV 16 And behold, a man came up to him, saying, "Teacher, what good deed must I do to have eternal life?" NIV 16 Now a man came up to Jesus and asked, "Teacher, what good thing must I do to get eternal life?" ESV 17 And he said to him, "Why do you ask me about what is good? There is only one who is good. If you would enter life, keep the commandments." NIV 17 "Why do you ask me about what is good?" Jesus replied. "There is only One who is good. If you want to enter life, obey the commandments." ESV 18 He said to him, "Which ones?" And Jesus said, "You shall not murder, You shall not commit adultery, You shall not steal, You shall not bear false witness, NIV 18 "Which ones?" the man inquired. Jesus replied, " 'Do not murder, do not commit adultery, do not steal, do not give false testimony, ESV 19 Honor your father and mother, and, You shall love your neighbor as yourself." NIV 19 honor your father and mother,' and 'love your neighbor as yourself.' "
