18 In that hour came the disciples unto Jesus, saying,

Who then is "greatest in the kingdom of heaven? 7 Gr. greater. 2 And he called to him a little child, and set him in 3 the midst of them, and said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye turn, and become as little children, ye

shall in no wise enter into the kingdom of heaven. 4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this

little child, the same is the 'greatest in the kingdom 5 of heaven. And whoso shall receive one such little 6 child in my name receiveth me: but whoso shall

And if thine eye causeth thee to stumble, pluck it 9 out, and cast it from thee: it is good for thee to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into the 'hell of fire.

words, he departed from Galilee, and came into the 2 borders of Judæa beyond Jordan; and great multitudes followed him; and he healed them there.

Then were there brought unto him little children, 13 that he should lay his hands on them, and pray: and the disciples rebuked them. But Jesus said, Suffer 14 the little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is* the kingdom of heaven. And he 15

But 22 when the young man heard the saying, he went away sorrowful: for he was one that had great possessions.

And Jesus said unto his disciples, Verily I say 23 unto you, It is hard for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of heaven. And again I say unto you, It 24 is easier for a camel to go through a needle's eye, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. And when the disciples heard it, they were 25 astonished exceedingly, saying, Who then can be saved? And Jesus looking upon them said to them, 26 With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible. Then answered Peter and said unto 27 him, Lo, we have left all, and followed thee; what then shall we have? And Jesus said unto them, 28 Verily I say unto you, that ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit on the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

had agreed with the labourers for a 'penny a day, note on ch. xviii. 3 he sent them into his vineyard. And he went out

about the third hour, and saw others standing in the 4 marketplace idle; and to them he said, Go ye also

into the vineyard, and whatsoever is right I will 5 give you. And they went their way. Again he

went out about the sixth and the ninth hour, and 6 did likewise. And about the eleventh hour he went

out, and found others standing; and he saith unto 7 them, Why stand ye here all the day idle? They

say unto him, Because no man hath hired us. He 8 saith unto them, Go ye also into the vineyard. And when even was come, the lord of the vineyard saith unto his steward, Call the labourers, and pay 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 Spenny. 10 And when the first came, they supposed that they

would receive more; and they likewise received 11 every man a spenny. And when they received it, 12 they murmured against the householder, saying,

These last have spent but one hour, and thou hast

made them equal unto us, which have borne the 13 burden of the day and the *scorching heat. But he 4 Or, hot wind

with mine own? or is thine eye evil, because I am 16 good ? So the last shall be first, and the first
