1 And he arose from thence, and cometh into the coasts of Judaea by the farther side of Jordan: and the people resort unto him again; and, as he was wont, he taught them again.
2 Then the Pharises came and asked him, if it were lawfull for a man to put away his wife, and tempted him.
3 And he answered, and sayde vnto them, What did Moses commaund you?
4 And they sayd, Moses suffered to write a bill of diuorcement, and to put her away.
5 And Jesus answered and said unto them, For the hardness of your heart he wrote you this precept.
6 But at the beginning of the creation God made them male and female:
7 For this cause shall man leaue his father and mother, and cleaue vnto his wife.
8 And they twaine shalbe one flesh: so that they are no more twaine, but one flesh.
9 Therefore, what God hath coupled together, let not man separate.
10 And in the house his disciples asked him againe of that matter.
11 And he saith unto them, Whosoever shall put away his wife, and marry another, committeth adultery against her.
12 And if a woman put away her husband, & be married to another, she committeth adulterie.
13 And they brought young children to him, that he should touch them: and [his] disciples rebuked those that brought [them].
14 But when Iesus sawe it, he was displeased, and said to them, Suffer the litle children to come vnto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdome of God.
15 Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein.
16 And he tooke them vp in his armes, and put his hands vpon them, and blessed them.
17 And when he was 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?
18 Iesus sayde to him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, euen God.
19 Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Defraud not, Honour thy father and mother.
20 Then he answered, and said to him, Master, all these things I haue obserued from my youth.
21 And Iesus looked vpon him, & loued him, and sayde vnto him, One thing is lacking vnto thee. Go and sell all that thou hast, and giue to the poore, & thou shalt haue treasure in heauen, and come, followe me, and take vp the crosse.
22 But hee was sad at that saying, and went away sorowfull: for he had great possessions.
23 And Iesus looked round about, & sayd vnto his disciples, Howe hardly doe they that haue riches, enter into the kingdome of God!
24 And his disciples were afraide at his words. But Iesus answered againe, and sayd vnto them, Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches, to enter into the kingdome of God!
25 It is easier for a camel to goe through the eye of a needle, then for a riche man to enter into the kingdome of God.
26 And they were much more astonied, saying with themselues, Who then can be saued?
27 But Iesus looked vpon them, & sayd, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible.
28 Then Peter began to say unto him, Lo, we have left all, and have followed thee.
29 Iesus answered, and sayd, Verely I say vnto you, there is no man that hath forsaken house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands for my sake and the Gospels,
30 But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life.
31 But many that are first, shall be last, and the last, first.
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 unto him,
33 Saying, Beholde, we goe vp to Hierusalem, and the Sonne of man shall be deliuered vnto the hie Priests, and to the Scribes, and they shall condemne him to death, and shall deliuer him to the Gentiles.
34 And they shall mocke him, and scourge him, and spit vpon him, and kill him: but the third day he shall rise againe.
35 And James and John, the sons of Zebedee, come unto him, saying, Master, we would that thou shouldest do for us whatsoever we shall desire.
36 And he sayd vnto them, What would ye I should doe for you?
37 And they said to him, Graunt vnto vs, that we may sit, one at thy right hand, and the other at thy left hand in thy glory.
38 But Iesus sayd vnto them, Ye knowe not what ye aske. Can ye drinke of the cup that I shal drinke of, and be baptized with the baptisme that I shall be baptized with?
39 And they said vnto him, We can. But Iesus sayd vnto them, Ye shall drinke in deede of the cup that I shall drinke of, and be baptized with the baptisme wherewith I shalbe baptized:
40 But to sit at my right hand, and at my left, is not mine to giue, but it shalbe giuen to them for whome it is prepared.
41 And when the ten heard that, they began to disdaine at Iames and Iohn.
42 But Jesus called them [to him], and saith unto them, Ye know that they which are accounted to rule over the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and their great ones exercise authority upon them.
43 But it shal not be so among you: but whosoeuer will be great among you, shall be your seruant.
44 And whosoeuer will be chiefe of you, shall be the seruant of all.
45 For euen the Sonne of man came not to be serued, but to serue, and to giue his life for the raunsome of many.
46 And they came to Jericho: and as he went out of Jericho with his disciples and a great number of people, blind Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, sat by the highway side begging.
47 And when hee heard that it was Iesus of Nazareth, he began to crye, and to say, Iesus the Sonne of Dauid, haue mercy on me.
48 And many rebuked him, because he should holde his peace: but hee cryed much more, O Sonne of Dauid, haue mercy on me.
49 Then Iesus stood still, & commanded him to be called: and they called the blind, saying vnto him, Be of good comfort: arise, he calleth thee.
50 So he threwe away his cloke, and rose, and came to Iesus.
51 And Iesus answered, & said vnto him, What wilt thou that I doe vnto thee? And the blinde sayd vnto him, Lorde, that I may receiue sight.
52 Then Iesus sayde vnto him, Goe thy way: thy fayth hath saued thee; by and by, he receiued his sight, and folowed Iesus in the way.
