10:1 And he arose from thence, and cometh into the borders of
Judea, by the further side of Jordan: and the people resort to
him again; and, as he was accustomed, he taught them again.
10:2 And the Pharisees came to him, and asked him, Is it lawful
for a man to put away [his] wife? tempting him.
10:3 And he answered and said to them, What did Moses command
10:4 And they said, Moses suffered to write a bill of
divorcement, and to put [her] away.
10:5 And Jesus answered and said to them, For the hardness of
your heart, he wrote you this precept.
10:6 But from the beginning of the creation, God made them male
10:7 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and
cleave to his wife;
10:8 And they two shall be one flesh: so then they are no more
two, but one flesh.
10:9 What therefore God hath joined together, let not man
10:10 And in the house his disciples asked him again of the same
10:11 And he saith to them, Whoever shall put away his wife, and
marry another, committeth adultery against her.
10:12 And if a woman shall put away her husband, and be married
to another, she committeth adultery.
10:13 And they brought young children to him, that he should
touch them; and [his] disciples rebuked those that brought
10:14 But when Jesus saw [it], he was much displeased, and said
to them, Suffer the little children to come to me, and forbid
them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.
10:15 Verily I say to you, Whoever shall not receive the kingdom
of God, as a little child, he shall not enter it.
10:16 And he took them up in his arms, put [his] hands upon
them, and blessed them.
10:17 And when he had gone forth into the way, there came one
running, and kneeled to him, and asked him, Good Master, what
shall I do that I may inherit eternal life?
10:18 And Jesus said to him, Why callest thou me good? [there
is] none good, but one, [that is] God.
10:19 Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do
not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Defraud not,
Honor thy father and mother.
10:20 And he answered and said to him, Master, all these have I
observed from my youth.
10:21 Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said to him, One
thing thou lackest: go, sell whatever thou hast, and give to
the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven; and come,
take up the cross, and follow me.
10:22 And he was sad at that saying, and went away grieved: for
he had great possessions.
10:23 And Jesus looked around, and saith to his disciples, How
hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of
10:24 And the disciples were astonished at his words. But Jesus
answereth again, and saith to them, Children, how hard is it
for them that trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God!
10:25 It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a
needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.
10:26 And they were astonished beyond measure, saying among
themselves, Who then can be saved?
10:27 And Jesus looking upon them, saith, With men [it is]
impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are
10:28 Then Peter began to say to him, Lo, we have left all, and
have followed thee.
10:29 Jesus answered and said, Verily I say to you, There is no
man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father,
or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the
10:30 But he shall receive a hundred-fold now in this time,
houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children,
and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come, eternal
10:31 But many [that are] first shall be last; and the last
10:32 And they were in the way, going up to Jerusalem; and Jesus
went before them: and they were amazed; and as they followed,
they were afraid. And he took again the twelve, and began to
tell them what things should happen to him,
10:33 [Saying], Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of
man will be delivered to the chief priests, and to the scribes;
and they will condemn him to death, and will deliver him to the
10:34 And they will mock him, and will scourge him, and will
spit upon him, and will kill him: and the third day he will
10:35 And James and John the sons of Zebedee come to him,
saying, Master, we would that thou shouldest do for us whatever
we shall desire.
10:36 And he said to them, What would ye that I should do for
10:37 They said to him, Grant to us that we may sit, one on thy
right hand, and the other on thy left hand, in thy glory.
10:38 But Jesus said to them, Ye know not what ye ask: can ye
drink of the cup that I drink of? and be baptized with the
baptism that I am baptized with?
10:39 And they said to him, We can. And Jesus said to them, Ye
shall indeed drink of the cup that I drink of: and with the
baptism that I am baptized with shalt ye be baptized;
10:40 But to sit on my right hand and on my left hand, is not
mine to give; but it shall be given to them for whom it is
10:41 And when the ten heard [it], they began to be much
displeased with James and John.
10:42 But Jesus called them, and saith to them, Ye know that
they who are accounted to rule over the Gentiles, exercise
lordship over them; and their great ones exercise authority
10:43 But so it shall not be among you: but whoever will be
great among you, shall be your minister:
10:44 And whoever of you will be the chief, shall be servant of
10:45 For even the son of man came not to be ministered to, but
to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.
10:46 And they came to Jericho: and as he went out of Jericho
with his disciples, and a great number of people, blind
Bartimeus, the son of Timeus, sat by the highway-side begging.
10:47 And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began
to cry out, and say, Jesus, [thou] son of David, have mercy on
10:48 And many charged him that he should hold his peace: but he
cried the more a great deal, [Thou] son of David, have mercy on
10:49 And Jesus stood still, and commanded him to be called: and
they call the blind man, saying to him, Be of good comfort,
rise; he calleth thee.
10:50 And he, casting away his garment, rose, and came to Jesus.
10:51 And Jesus answered and said to him, What wilt thou that I
should do to thee? The blind man said to him, Lord, that I may
receive my sight.
10:52 And Jesus said to him, Go, thy faith hath made thee whole.
