Matthew 19

19:1 And it came to pass, [that] when Jesus had finished these
 sayings, he departed from Galilee, and came into the borders of
 Judea, beyond Jordan:
19:2 And great multitudes followed him, and he healed them
19:3 The Pharisees also came to him, tempting him, and saying to
 him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every
19:4 And he answered and said to them, Have ye not read, that he
 who made [them], at the beginning made them male and female,
19:5 And said, For this [cause] shall a man leave father and
 mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they two shall be one
19:6 Wherefore they are no more two, but one flesh. Therefore
 what God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.
19:7 They say to him, Why did Moses then command to give a
 writing of divorcement, and to put her away?
19:8 He saith to them, Moses, because of the hardness of your
 hearts, suffered you to put away your wives: but from the
 beginning it was not so.
19:9 And I say to you, Whoever shall put away his wife, except
 for lewdness, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and
 whoever marrieth her who is put away, committeth adultery.
19:10 His disciples say to him, If the case of the man is so
 with [his] wife, it is not good to marry.
19:11 But he said to them, All [men] cannot receive this saying,
 save [they] to whom it is given.
19:12 For there are some eunuchs, who were so born from [their]
 mothers womb: and there are some eunuchs, who were made eunuchs
 by men: and there are eunuchs, who have made themselves eunuchs
 for the kingdom of heaven's sake. He that is able to receive
 [it], let him receive [it].
19:13 Then were brought to him little children, that he should
 put [his] hands on them, and pray: and the disciples rebuked
19:14 But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them
 not to come to me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.
19:15 And he laid [his] hands on them, and departed thence.
19:16 And behold, one came and said to him, Good Master, what
 good thing shall I do that I may have eternal life?
19:17 And he said to him, Why callest thou me good? [there is]
 none good but one, [that is], God: but if thou wilt enter into
 life, keep the commandments.
19:18 He saith to him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no
 murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal,
 Thou shalt not bear false witness,
19:19 Honor thy father and [thy] mother: and, Thou shalt love
 thy neighbor as thyself.
19:20 The young man saith to him, All these things have I kept
 from my youth: what lack I yet?
19:21 Jesus said to him, If thou wilt be perfect, go [and] sell
 what thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have
 treasure in heaven: and come [and] follow me.
19:22 But when the young man heard that saying, he went away
 sorrowful: for he had great possessions.
19:23 Then said Jesus to his disciples, Verily I say to you,
 that a rich man shall with difficulty enter into the kingdom of
19:24 And again I say to you, 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.
19:25 When his disciples heard [it], they were exceedingly
 amazed, saying, Who then can be saved?
19:26 But Jesus beheld [them], and said to them, With men this
 is impossible, but with God all things are possible.
19:27 Then answered Peter, and said to him, Behold, we have
 forsaken all, and followed thee? what shall we have therefore?
19:28 And Jesus said to them, Verily I say to 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.
19:29 And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or
 sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands
 for my name's sake, shall receive a hundred-fold, and shall
 inherit everlasting life.
19:30 But many [that are] first shall be last, and the last
 [shall be] first.
