KJV 1 For the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which went out early in the morning to hire labourers into his vineyard. NIV 1 “For the kingdom of heaven is like a landowner who went out early in the morning to hire workers for his vineyard. KJV 2 And when he had agreed with the labourers for a penny a day, he sent them into his vineyard. NIV 2 He agreed to pay them a denariusfor the day and sent them into his vineyard. KJV 3 And he went out about the third hour, and saw others standing idle in the marketplace, NIV 3 “About nine in the morning he went out and saw others standing in the marketplace doing nothing. KJV 4 And said unto them; Go ye also into the vineyard, and whatsoever is right 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.’ KJV 5 Again he went out about the sixth and ninth hour, and did likewise. NIV 5 So they went. “He went out again about noon and about three in the afternoon and did the same thing. KJV 6 And about the eleventh hour he went out, and found others standing idle, and saith unto them, Why stand ye here all the day idle? NIV 6 About five in the afternoon he went out and found still others standing around. He asked them, ‘Why have you been standing here all day long doing nothing?’ KJV 7 They say unto him, Because no man hath hired us. He saith unto them, Go ye also into the vineyard; and whatsoever is right, that shall ye receive. NIV 7 “ ‘Because no one has hired us,’ they answered. “He said to them, ‘You also go and work in my vineyard.’ KJV 8 So when even was come, the lord of the vineyard saith unto his steward, Call the labourers, and give them their hire, beginning from the last unto 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.’ KJV 9 And when they came that were hired about the eleventh hour, they received every man a penny. NIV 9 “The workers who were hired about five in the afternoon came and each received a denarius. KJV 10 But when the first came, they supposed that they should have received more; and they likewise received every man a penny. NIV 10 So when those came who were hired first, they expected to receive more. But each one of them also received a denarius. KJV 11 And when they had received it, they murmured against the goodman of the house, NIV 11 When they received it, they began to grumble against the landowner. KJV 12 Saying, These last have wrought but one hour, and thou hast made them equal unto us, which have borne the burden and heat of the day. NIV 12 ‘These 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.’ KJV 13 But he answered one of them, and said, Friend, I do thee no wrong: didst not thou agree with me for a penny? NIV 13 “But he answered one of them, ‘I am not being unfair to you, friend. Didn’t you agree to work for a denarius? KJV 14 Take that thine is, and go thy way: I will give unto this last, even as unto thee. NIV 14 Take your pay and go. I want to give the one who was hired last the same as I gave you. KJV 15 Is it not lawful for me to do what I will with mine own? 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?’ KJV 16 So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen. NIV 16 “So the last will be first, and the first will be last.” KJV 17 And Jesus going up to Jerusalem took the twelve disciples apart in the way, and said unto them, NIV 17 Now Jesus was going up to Jerusalem. On the way, he took the Twelve aside and said to them, KJV 18 Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man shall be betrayed unto the chief priests and unto the scribes, and they shall condemn him to death, NIV 18 “We are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be delivered over to the chief priests and the teachers of the law. They will condemn him to death KJV 19 And shall deliver him to the Gentiles to mock, and to scourge, and to crucify him: and the third day he shall rise again. NIV 19 and will hand him over to the Gentiles to be mocked and flogged and crucified. On the third day he will be raised to life!” KJV 20 Then came to him the mother of Zebedee's children with her sons, worshipping him, and desiring a certain thing 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. KJV 21 And he said unto her,What wilt thou? She saith unto him, Grant that these my two sons may sit, the one on thy right hand, and the other on the 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.” KJV 22 But Jesus answered and said,Ye know not what ye ask. Are ye able to drink of the cup that I shall drink of, and to be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with? They say unto 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. KJV 23 And he saith unto them,Ye shall drink indeed of my cup, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with: but to sit on my right hand, and on my left, is not mine to give, but it shall be given to them 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.” KJV 24 And when the ten heard it, they were moved with indignation against the two brethren. NIV 24 When the ten heard about this, they were indignant with the two brothers. KJV 25 But Jesus called them unto him, and said,Ye know that the princes of the Gentiles exercise dominion over them, and they that are great exercise authority upon 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. KJV 26 But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister; NIV 26 Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, KJV 27 And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant: NIV 27 and whoever wants to be first must be your slave— KJV 28 Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, 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.” KJV 29 And as they departed from Jericho, a great multitude followed him. NIV 29 As Jesus and his disciples were leaving Jericho, a large crowd followed him. KJV 30 And, behold, two blind men sitting by the way side, when they heard that Jesus passed by, cried out, saying, Have mercy on us, O Lord, thou 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!” KJV 31 And the multitude rebuked them, because they should hold their peace: but they cried the more, saying, Have mercy on us, O Lord, thou 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!” KJV 32 And Jesus stood still, and called them, and said,What will ye that I shall do unto you? NIV 32 Jesus stopped and called them. “What do you want me to do for you?” he asked. KJV 33 They say unto him, Lord, that our eyes may be opened. NIV 33 “Lord,” they answered, “we want our sight.” KJV 34 So Jesus had compassion on them, and touched their eyes: and immediately their eyes received sight, and they followed him. NIV 34 Jesus had compassion on them and touched their eyes. Immediately they received their sight and followed him.
