2 Some Phariseesk came and tested him by asking, “Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife?”
4 They said, “Moses permitted a man to write a certificate of divorce and send her away.”l
5 “It was because your hearts were hardm that Moses wrote you this law,” Jesus replied. 6 “But at the beginning of creation God ‘made them male and female.’a n 7 ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife,b 8 and the two will become one flesh.’c o So they are no longer two, but one flesh. 9 Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.”
10 When they were in the house again, the disciples asked Jesus about this. 11 He answered, “Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery against her.p 12 And if she divorces her husband and marries another man, she commits adultery.”q
13 People were bringing little children to Jesus for him to place his hands on them, but the disciples rebuked them. 14 When Jesus saw this, he was indignant. He said to them, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.r 15 Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.”s 16 And he took the children in his arms,t placed his hands on them and blessed them.
18 “Why do you call me good?” Jesus answered. “No one is good—except God alone. 19 You know the commandments: ‘You shall not murder, you shall not commit adultery, you shall not steal, you shall not give false testimony, you shall not defraud, honor your father and mother.’d”w
23 Jesus looked around and said to his disciples, “How hard it is for the richa to enter the kingdom of God!”
24 The disciples were amazed at his words. But Jesus said again, “Children, how hard it ise to enter the kingdom of God!b 25 It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.”c
27 Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.”d
28 Then Peter spoke up, “We have left everything to follow you!”e
29 “Truly I tell you,” Jesus replied, “no one who has left home or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or fields for me and the gospel 30 will fail to receive a hundred times as muchf in this present age: homes, brothers, sisters, mothers, children and fields—along with persecutions—and in the age to comeg eternal life.h 31 But many who are first will be last, and the last first.”i
