Matthew 19:27-30

The Disciples' Reward

27 Then Peter said to Him, "Behold, we have left everything and followed You; what then will there be for us?"
28 And Jesus said to them, "Truly I say to you, that you who have followed Me, in the regeneration when 1the Son of Man will sit on His glorious throne, 2you also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
29 "And 3everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or farms for My name's sake, will receive many times as much, and will inherit eternal life.
30 "4But many who are first will be last; and the last, first.
