Matthew 19

ASV 1 And it came to pass when Jesus had finished these words, he departed from Galilee, and came into the borders of Judaea beyond the Jordan; NIV 1 When Jesus had finished saying these things, he left Galilee and went into the region of Judea to the other side of the Jordan. ASV 2 and great multitudes followed him; and he healed them there. NIV 2 Large crowds followed him, and he healed them there. ASV 3 And there came unto him Pharisees, trying him, and saying, Is it lawful [for a man] to put away his wife for every cause? NIV 3 Some Pharisees came to him to test him. They asked, “Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for any and every reason?” ASV 4 And he answered and said, Have ye not read, that he who made [them] from the beginning made them male and female, NIV 4 “Haven’t you read,” he replied, “that at the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female,’ ASV 5 and said, For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife; and the two shall become one flesh? NIV 5 and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh’? ASV 6 So that they are no more two, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder. NIV 6 So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.” ASV 7 They say unto him, Why then did Moses command to give a bill of divorcement, and to put [her] away? NIV 7 “Why then,” they asked, “did Moses command that a man give his wife a certificate of divorce and send her away?” ASV 8 He saith unto them, Moses for your hardness of heart suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it hath not been so. NIV 8 Jesus replied, “Moses permitted you to divorce your wives because your hearts were hard. But it was not this way from the beginning. ASV 9 And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and he that marrieth her when she is put away committeth adultery. NIV 9 I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another woman commits adultery.” ASV 10 The disciples say unto him, If the case of the man is so with his wife, it is not expedient 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.” ASV 11 But he said unto them, Not all men can receive this saying, but they to whom it is given. NIV 11 Jesus replied, “Not everyone can accept this word, but only those to whom it has been given. ASV 12 For there are eunuchs, that were so born from their mother's womb: and there are eunuchs, that were made eunuchs by men: and there are eunuchs, that made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven's sake. He that is able to receive it, let him receive it. NIV 12 For there are eunuchs who were born that way, and there are eunuchs who have been made eunuchs by others—and there are those who choose to live like eunuchs for the sake of the kingdom of heaven. The one who can accept this should accept it.” ASV 13 Then were there brought unto him little children, that he should lay his hands on them, and pray: and the disciples rebuked them. NIV 13 Then people brought little children to Jesus for him to place his hands on them and pray for them. But the disciples rebuked them. ASV 14 But Jesus said, Suffer the little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for to such belongeth 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.” ASV 15 And he laid his hands on them, and departed thence. NIV 15 When he had placed his hands on them, he went on from there. ASV 16 And behold, one came to him and said, Teacher, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life? NIV 16 Just then a man came up to Jesus and asked, “Teacher, what good thing must I do to get eternal life?” ASV 17 And he said unto him, Why askest thou me concerning that which is good? One there is who is good: but if thou wouldest enter into 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, keep the commandments.” ASV 18 He saith unto him, Which? And Jesus said, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, NIV 18 “Which ones?” he inquired. Jesus replied, “ ‘You shall not murder, you shall not commit adultery, you shall not steal, you shall not give false testimony, ASV 19 Honor thy father and mother; and, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. NIV 19 honor your father and mother,’and ‘love your neighbor as yourself.’” ASV 20 The young man saith unto him, All these things have I observed: what lack I yet? NIV 20 “All these I have kept,” the young man said. “What do I still lack?” ASV 21 Jesus said unto him, If thou wouldest be perfect, go, sell that which thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, follow me. NIV 21 Jesus answered, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.” ASV 22 But when the young man heard the saying, he went away sorrowful; for he was one that had great possessions. NIV 22 When the young man heard this, he went away sad, because he had great wealth. ASV 23 And Jesus said unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, It is hard for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of heaven. NIV 23 Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Truly I tell you, it is hard for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of heaven. ASV 24 And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through a needle's eye, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. NIV 24 Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.” ASV 25 And when the disciples heard it, they were astonished exceedingly, saying, Who then can be saved? NIV 25 When the disciples heard this, they were greatly astonished and asked, “Who then can be saved?” ASV 26 And Jesus looking upon [them] said to them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible. NIV 26 Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” ASV 27 Then answered Peter and said unto him, Lo, we have left all, and followed thee; what then shall we have? NIV 27 Peter answered him, “We have left everything to follow you! What then will there be for us?” ASV 28 And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, that ye who have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit on the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. NIV 28 Jesus said to them, “Truly I tell you, at the renewal of all things, when the Son of Man sits on his glorious throne, you who have followed me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. ASV 29 And every one that hath left houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or children, or lands, for my name's sake, shall receive a hundredfold, and shall inherit eternal life. NIV 29 And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wifeor children or fields for my sake will receive a hundred times as much and will inherit eternal life. ASV 30 But many shall be last [that are] first; and first [that are] last. NIV 30 But many who are first will be last, and many who are last will be first.
