1 AND he arose from thence, and came to the borders of Jehud on the other side of the Jurdan: and great multitudes went thither to him; and he taught them again as he was accustomed.
2 And the Pharishee drew nigh, tempting him, and demanding whether it were lawful for a man to dismiss his wife.
3 He saith to them, What hath Musha prescribed?
4 But they say, Musha permitted us to write a writing of dismissal, and to send away.
5 Jeshu answered and said to them, On account of the hardness of your heart he wrote for you this commandment.
6 But from the beginning the male and the female Aloha made them.
7 For this cause a man shall leave his father and his mother,
8 and shall cleave unto his wife; and they two shall be one flesh: henceforth they are not two, but one flesh.
9 What Aloha therefore hath conjoined, man may not separate.
10 And his disciples asked him again in the house concerning this (matter).
11 And he said to them, Every one who shall send away his wife, and take another, adulterizeth.
12 And if the wife shall leave her husband, and shall become another's, she adulterizeth.
13 And they presented unto him children, that he should touch them: but his disciples rebuked those who presented them.
14 But Jeshu, when he saw, was displeased, and said to them, Permit the children to come to me, and forbid them not: for of those who are as these is the kingdom of Aloha.
15 Amen I say to you, That whoever shall not receive the kingdom of Aloha as a child, shall not enter into it.
16 And he took them on his arms, and laid his hand upon them, and blessed them.
17 AND as he journeyed in the way, one ran, fell upon his knees, and asked him, saying, Good Teacher, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life?
18 Jeshu said to him, Why callest thou me good? none is good but one, Aloha.
19 Thou knowest the commandments, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not witness false testimony, Thou shalt not injure, Honour thy father and thy mother.
20 But he answered and said to him, Malphona, these all have I kept from my childhood.
21 And Jeshu beheld him and loved him, and said to him, One thing is wanting to thee: go, sell all whatever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have a treasure in heaven: and take up thy cross and come after me.
22 But he was grieved at that word, and went away sorrowful: for he had great riches.
23 And Jeshu beheld his disciples, and said to them, How hard to those who have riches to enter the kingdom of Aloha!
24 But his disciples were astonished at his words. And Jeshu answered again, and said to them, My sons, how hard (is it) for those who trust on their riches to enter into the kingdom of Aloha!
25 It is easier for a camel to go through the hole of a needle, than for a rich to enter into the kingdom of Aloha.
26 And they were the more astonished, and said among themselves, Who can be saved?
27 Jeshu beheld them and said to them, With the sons of men this is not possible, but with Aloha: for every thing is possible with Aloha.
28 THEN began Kipha to say, Behold, we have forsaken every thing, and have cleaved to thee.
29 Jeshu responded and said, Amen I say to you, There is no man who forsaketh houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or fields, on account of me, and on account of my gospel,
30 who shall not receive a hundred-fold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and fields, with persecution; and in the world which cometh the life that is eternal.
31 But many (are) first who will be last, and last (who will be) first.
32 Now when they were going up in the way to Urishlem, Jeshu himself preceded them; and they were amazed, and came after him, fearing. And he took his twelve, and began to tell them what it was which was to happen to him.
33 Behold, we go up to Urishlem; and the Son of man (will be) betrayed to the chief priests, and to the Sophree; and they shall condemn him to the death, and shall deliver him to the Gentiles;
34 and shall mock him, and scourge him, and spit in his face, and kill him: and the third day he shall arise.
35 AND Jacub and Juchanon, sons of Zabdai, approached him, saying to him, Malphona, we would that whatever we ask thou wilt do for us.
36 He saith to them, What will you that I should do for you?
37 They say to him, Give us that one may sit at thy right hand, and one at thy left, in thy glory.
38 But he said to them, You know not what you ask: can you drink the cup that I drink? and (with) the baptism that I am baptized (with) can you be baptized?
39 They say to him, We can. Jeshu saith to them, The cup that I drink you shall drink; and (with) the baptism that I am baptized (with) you shall be baptized:
40 but that you sit on my right hand and on my left, is not mine to give, except for those for whom it is prepared.
41 And when the ten heard, they began to murmur against Jacub and Juchanon.
42 And Jeshu called them and said to them, You know that they who are considered the princes of the Gentiles are lords of them; and their great ones exercise power over them:
43 but not thus shall it be among you. But if any one among you willeth to be great, let him be to you the servant;
44 and whoever of you willeth to be the first, he shall be the labourer for all.
45 For even the Son of man came not to be served, but to serve, and to give his life the ransom for many.
46 And they came unto Jirichu. And as Jeshu went forth from Jirichu, he and his disciples and a great multitude, Timai bar Timai, the blind man, was sitting by the side of the way begging.
47 And he heard that it was Jeshu Natsroia; and he began to cry out, and to say, Son of David, have mercy on me!
48 And many rebuked him, that he should be silent: but he cried out the more, saying, Son of David, have mercy on me!
49 And Jeshu stood, and commanded that they should bring him. And they called the blind man, saying to him, Be of heart, rise, he calleth thee.
50 But he, the blind, loosed his garment, and rose up, (and) came to Jeshu.
51 Saith to him Jeshu, What wilt thou that I do for thee? And he, the blind, said to him, Rabi, that I may see.
52 And Jeshu said to him, SEE: thy faith hath saved thee. And instantly he saw, and he went in the way.
