20 aFor the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which went out early in the morning to hire labourers into aahis vineyard. 2 And when he had agreed with the labourers for ba ||penny a day, he sent them into his vineyard. 3 And he went out about the third hour, and saw others standing idle in the marketplace, 4 And said unto them; Go ye also into the vineyard, and whatsoever is right I will give you. And they went their way. 5 Again he went out about the sixth and ninth hour, and did likewise. 6 And about the celeventh hour he went out, and found others standing idle, and saith unto them, Why stand ye here all the day idle? 7 They say unto him, dBecause no man hath hired us. He saith unto them, Go ye also into the vineyard; and whatsoever is right, that shall ye receive. 8 So ewhen even was come, the lord of the vineyard saith unto his fsteward, Call the labourers, and give them their hire, beginning from the last unto the first. 9 And when they came that were hired about the eleventh hour, they received every man a penny. 10 But when the first came, they supposed that they should have received more; and they likewise received every man a penny. 11 And when they had received it, they murmured against gthe goodman of the house, 12 Saying, These last ||have hwrought but one hour, and thou hast made them equal unto us, which have borne the burden and iheat of the day. 13 But he answered one of them, and said, jFriend, I do thee no wrong: didst not thou agree with me for a penny? 14 Take jjthat thine is, and go thy way: I will give unto this last, even as unto thee. 15 kIs it not lawful for me to do what I will with mine own? Is thine eye levil, because I am mgood? 16 So nthe last shall be first, and the first last: ofor many be called, but few chosen.
17 pAnd Jesus ppgoing up to Jerusalem took the twelve disciples apart in the way, and said unto them, 18 Behold, qwe go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man shall be rbetrayed unto the chief priests and unto the scribes, and they shall condemn him to death, 19 And shall rdeliver him sto the Gentiles to tmock, and to scourge, and to crucify him: and uthe third day he shall rise again.
20 wThen came to him the mother of xZebedee’s children with her sons, yworshipping him, and desiring a certain thing of him. 21 And he said unto her, What wilt thou? She saith unto him, Grant that these my two sons zmay sit, the one zzon thy right hand, and the other on the left, in thy kingdom. 22 But Jesus answered and said, Ye know not what ye ask. Are ye able to drink of athe cup that I shall drink of, and to be baptized with bthe baptism that I am baptized with? They say unto him, We are able. 23 And he saith unto them, cYe shall drink indeed of my cup, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with: but to sit on my right hand, and on my left, is not mine to give, dbut it shall be given to them for whom it is eprepared of my Father. 24 And when the ten heard it, they were moved with indignation against the two brethren. 25 But Jesus called them unto him, and said, fYe know that the princes of the Gentiles gexercise dominion over them, and they that are great exercise authority upon them. 26 But it shall not be so among you: but hwhosoever will be great among you, let him be your iminister; 27 And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant: 28 Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, kbut to minister, and lto give his life a ransom for mmany.
29 nAnd as they nndeparted from oJericho, a great multitude followed him. 30 And, behold, ptwo blind men sitting by the way side, when they heard that Jesus passed by, cried out, saying, Have mercy on us, O Lord, thou Son of David. 31 And the multitude rebuked them, qbecause they should hold their peace: but they cried the more, saying, Have mercy on us, O Lord, thou Son of David. 32 And Jesus stood still, and called them, and said, What will ye that I shall do unto you? 33 They say unto him, Lord, that our eyes may be opened. 34 So Jesus had compassion on them, and rtouched their eyes: and immediately their eyes received sight, and they followed him.
