Matthew 20

DBY 1 For the kingdom of the heavens is like a householder who went out with the early morn to hire workmen for his vineyard. NIV 1 "For the kingdom of heaven is like a landowner who went out early in the morning to hire men to work in his vineyard. DBY 2 And having agreed with the workmen for a denarius the day, he sent them into his vineyard. NIV 2 He agreed to pay them a denarius for the day and sent them into his vineyard. DBY 3 And having gone out about [the] third hour, he saw others standing in the market-place idle; NIV 3 "About the third hour he went out and saw others standing in the marketplace doing nothing. DBY 4 and to them he said, Go also ye into the vineyard, and whatsoever may be just I will give you. And they went their way. NIV 4 He told them, 'You also go and work in my vineyard, and I will pay you whatever is right.' DBY 5 Again, having gone out about the sixth and ninth hour, he did likewise. NIV 5 So they went. "He went out again about the sixth hour and the ninth hour and did the same thing. DBY 6 But about the eleventh [hour], having gone out, he found others standing, and says to them, Why stand ye here all the day idle? NIV 6 About the eleventh hour he went out and found still others standing around. He asked them, 'Why have you been standing here all day long doing nothing?' DBY 7 They say to him, Because no man has hired us. He says to them, Go also ye into the vineyard [and whatsoever may be just ye shall receive]. NIV 7 " 'Because no one has hired us,' they answered. "He said to them, 'You also go and work in my vineyard.' DBY 8 But when the evening was come, the lord of the vineyard says to his steward, Call the workmen and pay [them] their wages, beginning from the last even to the first. NIV 8 "When evening came, the owner of the vineyard said to his foreman, 'Call the workers and pay them their wages, beginning with the last ones hired and going on to the first.' DBY 9 And when they [who came to work] about the eleventh hour came, they received each a denarius. NIV 9 "The workers who were hired about the eleventh hour came and each received a denarius. DBY 10 And when the first came, they supposed that they would receive more, and they received also themselves each a denarius. NIV 10 So when those came who were hired first, they expected to receive more. But each one of them also received a denarius. DBY 11 And on receiving it they murmured against the master of the house, NIV 11 When they received it, they began to grumble against the landowner. DBY 12 saying, These last have worked one hour, and thou hast made them equal to us, who have borne the burden of the day and the heat. NIV 12 'These men who were hired last worked only one hour,' they said, 'and you have made them equal to us who have borne the burden of the work and the heat of the day.' DBY 13 But he answering said to one of them, [My] friend, I do not wrong thee. Didst thou not agree with me for a denarius? NIV 13 "But he answered one of them, 'Friend, I am not being unfair to you. Didn't you agree to work for a denarius? DBY 14 Take what is thine and go. But it is my will to give to this last even as to thee: NIV 14 Take your pay and go. I want to give the man who was hired last the same as I gave you. DBY 15 is it not lawful for me to do what I will in my own affairs? Is thine eye evil because *I* am good? NIV 15 Don't I have the right to do what I want with my own money? Or are you envious because I am generous?' DBY 16 Thus shall the last be first, and the first last; for many are called ones, but few chosen ones. NIV 16 "So the last will be first, and the first will be last." DBY 17 And Jesus, going up to Jerusalem, took the twelve disciples with [him] apart in the way, and said to them, NIV 17 Now as Jesus was going up to Jerusalem, he took the twelve disciples aside and said to them, DBY 18 Behold we go up to Jerusalem, and the Son of man will be delivered up to the chief priests and scribes, and they will condemn him to death; NIV 18 "We are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be betrayed to the chief priests and the teachers of the law. They will condemn him to death DBY 19 and they will deliver him up to the nations to mock and to scourge and to crucify, and the third day he shall rise again. NIV 19 and will turn him over to the Gentiles to be mocked and flogged and crucified. On the third day he will be raised to life!" DBY 20 Then came to him the mother of the sons of Zebedee, with her sons, doing homage, and asking something of him. NIV 20 Then the mother of Zebedee's sons came to Jesus with her sons and, kneeling down, asked a favor of him. DBY 21 And he said to her, What wilt thou? She says to him, Speak [the word] that these my two sons may sit, one on thy right hand and one on thy left in thy kingdom. NIV 21 "What is it you want?" he asked. She said, "Grant that one of these two sons of mine may sit at your right and the other at your left in your kingdom." DBY 22 And Jesus answering said, Ye know not what ye ask. Can ye drink the cup which *I* am about to drink? They say to him, We are able. NIV 22 "You don't know what you are asking," Jesus said to them. "Can you drink the cup I am going to drink?" "We can," they answered. DBY 23 [And] he says to them, Ye shall drink indeed my cup, but to sit on my right hand and on [my] left, is not mine to give, but to those for whom it is prepared of my Father. NIV 23 Jesus said to them, "You will indeed drink from my cup, 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 by my Father." DBY 24 And the ten, having heard [of it], were indignant about the two brothers. NIV 24 When the ten heard about this, they were indignant with the two brothers. DBY 25 But Jesus having called them to [him], said, Ye know that the rulers of the nations exercise lordship over them, and the great exercise authority over them. NIV 25 Jesus called them together and said, "You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials exercise authority over them. DBY 26 It shall not be thus amongst you, but whosoever will be great among you, shall be your servant; NIV 26 Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, DBY 27 and whosoever will be first among you, let him be your bondman; NIV 27 and whoever wants to be first must be your slave-- DBY 28 as indeed the Son of man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life a ransom for many. NIV 28 just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many." DBY 29 And as they went out from Jericho a great crowd followed him. NIV 29 As Jesus and his disciples were leaving Jericho, a large crowd followed him. DBY 30 And lo, two blind men, sitting by the wayside, having heard that Jesus was passing by, cried out saying, Have mercy on us, Lord, Son of David. NIV 30 Two blind men were sitting by the roadside, and when they heard that Jesus was going by, they shouted, "Lord, Son of David, have mercy on us!" DBY 31 But the crowd rebuked them, that they might be silent. But they cried out the more, saying, Have mercy on us, Lord, Son of David. NIV 31 The crowd rebuked them and told them to be quiet, but they shouted all the louder, "Lord, Son of David, have mercy on us!" DBY 32 And Jesus, having stopped, called them and said, What will ye that I shall do to you? NIV 32 Jesus stopped and called them. "What do you want me to do for you?" he asked. DBY 33 They say to him, Lord, that our eyes may be opened. NIV 33 "Lord," they answered, "we want our sight." DBY 34 And Jesus, moved with compassion, touched their eyes; and immediately their eyes had sight restored to them, and they followed him. NIV 34 Jesus had compassion on them and touched their eyes. Immediately they received their sight and followed him.
