1And a ruler asked him, "Good Teacher, what must I do to 2inherit eternal life?"
And Jesus said to him, "Why do you call me good? No one is good except God alone.
You know the commandments: 3'Do not commit adultery, Do not murder, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Honor your father and mother.'"
And he said, 4"All these I have kept from my youth."
When Jesus heard this, he said to him, "One thing you still lack. 5Sell all that you have and distribute to the poor, and you will have 6treasure in heaven; and come, follow me."
7But when he heard these things, he became very sad, for he was extremely rich.
Jesus, seeing that he had become sad, said, 8"How difficult it is for those who have wealth to enter 9the kingdom of God!
For it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter 10the kingdom of God."
Those who heard it said, "Then who can be saved?"
But he said, 11"What is impossible with men is possible with God."
And Peter said, "See, 12we have left our homes and followed you."
And he said to them, "Truly, I say to you, 13there is no one who has left house or wife or brothers or parents or children, for the sake of the kingdom of God,
who will not receive 14many times more 15in this time, and in 16the age to come eternal life."
