Teachings about Divorce
(Matthew 19:1–12)

1AND arising, he went from thence into the coasts of Judea, through the country on the other side of the Jordan; and again the multitudes came together unto him; and as his custom was, he again taught them.

2And the Pharisees coming to him, put a question to him, Is it lawful for a husband to put away his wife? tempting him. 3He answered and said unto them, What did Moses command you? 4They said, Moses permitted to write a bill of divorce, and to put her away. 5Then Jesus answering said unto them, For the hardness of your hearts he wrote you that ordinance. 6But from the beginning of the creation, God made them male and female; 7and said, For this cause shall a man forsake father and mother, and shall adhere to his wife; 8and they two shall be one flesh: so that they are no more two, but one flesh. 9What therefore God hath yoked together, let no man separate.

10And in the house the disciples again asked him of this matter. 11And he said unto them, Whosoever shall put away his wife, and marry another, committeth adultery against her: 12and if a wife put away her husband, and marrieth another, she committeth adultery.

Jesus Blesses the Children
(Matthew 19:13–15; Luke 18:15–17)

13And they brought unto him little children, that he should touch them: but his disciples rebuked those who brought them. 14But when Jesus saw it, he felt indignation, and said to them, Permit little children to come to me, and hinder them not; for of such is the kingdom of heaven. 15Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall in nowise enter into it. 16And he took them in his arms, and laying his hand upon them, gave them his benediction.

The Rich Young Man
(Matthew 19:16–30; Luke 18:18–30)

17And as he went out to the road, a person ran to him, and kneeling down, asked him, Good Master, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life? 18Then said Jesus unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, even God. 19Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery; Do not murder; Do not steal; Do not bear false witness; Honour thy father and mother. 20Then he replying, said, Master, all these things have I observed from my youth. 21Then Jesus looking upon him, loved him, and said to him, In one thing thou art defective: go, sell all that thou hast, and give to the poor; and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up thy cross, and follow me. 22And groaning over this speech, he went away sorrowful: for he had many estates.

23And Jesus looking round, said to his disciples, How difficultly shall they who have riches enter into the kingdom of God! 24Then his disciples were astonished at these words. But Jesus again addressing them, said unto them, Children, how difficult is it for those who trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God! 25It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. 26And they were exceedingly amazed, saying among themselves, Who then can be saved? 27And Jesus looking upon them, said, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible.

28And Peter began to say unto him, Lo, we have left all, and followed thee. 29Then Jesus in reply said, Verily I say unto you, there is no man who hath left house, or brothers, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake and the Gospel?s, 30who shall not receive an hundred-fold more now, at this very time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecution, and in the world to come life everlasting. 31But many first, will be last; and the last, first.

The Third Prediction of the Passion
(Matthew 20:17–19; Luke 18:31–34)

32And they were on the road going up to Jerusalem; and Jesus was advancing before them: and they were astonished; and followed him full of fear. And again taking the twelve aside, he began to tell them what things were about to befall him: 33For, lo! said he, we are going up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man will be betrayed to the chief priests, and to the scribes; and they will condemn him to death, and will deliver him to the Gentiles: 34and they will insult him, and scourge him, and spit upon him, and kill him: and the third day he shall rise again.

The Request of James and John
(Matthew 20:20–28)

35And James and John the sons of Zebedee came to him, saying, Master, we desire that thou shouldst do for us whatsoever we request. 36He said unto them, What will ye that I should do for you? 37They say unto him, Grant us to sit, the one on thy right hand, and the other on thy left, in thy glory. 38Then Jesus said unto them, Ye know not what ye ask: can ye drink of the cup which I drink? and be baptised with the baptism with which I am baptised? 39And they said unto him, We are able. Then said Jesus unto them, Ye shall indeed drink of the cup of which I drink; and be baptised with the baptism with which I am baptised: 40but to sit on my right-hand, and on my left, is not mine to give; but to those for whom it is prepared.

41And when the ten heard it, they began to be indignant against James and John. 42But Jesus called them, and said to them, Ye know that they who appear to rule over the Gentiles, lord it over them; and their great men exercise dominion over them. 43But it shall not be so with you: but whosoever will be great among you let him be your servant: 44and whosoever will be first, let him be the servant of all. 45For the Son of man came not to be waited upon, but to be a servant, and to give his life a ransom for many.

Jesus Heals Bartimaeus
(Matthew 20:29–34; Luke 18:35–43)

46And they came to Jericho. And as he was going out of Jericho with his disciples, and a great multitude, Bartimeus, the blind, the son of Timeus, sat by the road-side begging: 47and hearing that Jesus of Nazareth was passing by, he began to cry out, and say, O Son of David, Jesus, have mercy on me! 48And many chid him, that he should be silent: but he cried out so much the more, Son of David, have mercy on me! 49And Jesus stood still, and ordered him to be called: and they call the blind man, saying to him, Cheer up, arise; he calleth thee. 50Then casting off his cloak, he arose, and came to Jesus. 51And Jesus addressing him, said, What dost thou wish that I should do for thee? And the blind man said to him, Rabboni, that I may receive my sight! 52Then said Jesus unto him, Go thy way: thy faith hath saved thee. And immediately he received sight, and followed Jesus in the road.
