16 And, behold, xone came and said unto him, Good yMaster, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life? 17 And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but zif thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments. 18 He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, aThou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, 19 bHonour thy father and thy mother: and, cThou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 20 The young man saith unto him, All these things have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet? 21 Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be dperfect, ego and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and fthou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me. 22 But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions.
23 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That ga rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven. 24 And hagain I say unto you, It is easier for a icamel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. 25 When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, Who then can be saved? 26 But Jesus kbeheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but lwith God all things are possible.
27 Then answered Peter and said unto him, Behold, we have mforsaken all, and followed thee; what shall we have therefore? 28 And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the nregeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, oye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, opjudging the twelve tribes of Israel. 29 And every one that hath mforsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name’s sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life. 30 But many that are qfirst shall be last; and the rlast shall be first.
