Concerning Divorce

1 When R687 Jesus had finished these words, He departed from Galilee and came R688 into the region of Judea beyond the Jordan; 2 and large F427 crowds followed Him, and He R689 healed them there.

3 Some Pharisees came to Jesus, F428 testing Him and asking, "Is R690 it lawful for a man to divorce F429 his wife for any reason at all?" 4 And He answered and said, "Have you not read that R691 He who created them from the beginning MADE THEM MALE AND FEMALE, 5 and said, `FOR R692 THIS REASON A MAN SHALL LEAVE HIS FATHER AND MOTHER AND BE JOINED TO HIS WIFE, AND THE R693 TWO SHALL BECOME ONE FLESH'? 6 "So they are no longer two, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let no man separate." 7 They said to Him, "Why R694 then did Moses command to GIVE HER A CERTIFICATE OF DIVORCE AND SEND her AWAY?" 8 He said to them, "Because of your hardness of heart Moses permitted you to divorce F430 your wives; but from the beginning it has not been this way. 9 "And I say to you, whoever R695 divorces F431 his wife, except for immorality, F432 and marries another woman commits F433 adultery." F434

10 The disciples said to Him, "If the relationship of the man with his wife is like this, it is better not to marry." 11 But He said to them, "Not R696 all men can accept this statement, but only R697 those to whom it has been given. 12 "For there are eunuchs who were born that way from their mother's womb; and there are eunuchs who were made eunuchs by men; and there are also eunuchs who made themselves eunuchs for the sake of the kingdom of heaven. He who is able to accept this, let him accept it."

Jesus Blesses Little Children

13 Then R698 some children were brought to Him so that He might lay His hands on them and pray; and the disciples rebuked them. 14 But Jesus said, "Let R699 F435 the children alone, and do not hinder them from coming to Me; for the R700 kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." 15 After laying His hands on them, He departed from there.

The Rich Young Ruler

16 And R701 someone came to Him and said, "Teacher, what good thing shall I do that I may obtain eternal R702 life?" 17 And He said to him, "Why are you asking Me about what is good? There is only One who is good; but if R703 you wish to enter into life, keep the commandments." 18 Then he said to Him, "Which ones?" And Jesus said, "YOU R704 SHALL NOT COMMIT MURDER; YOU SHALL NOT COMMIT ADULTERY; YOU SHALL NOT STEAL; YOU SHALL NOT BEAR FALSE WITNESS; 19 HONOR R705 YOUR FATHER AND MOTHER; and YOU R706 SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF." 20 The young man said to Him, "All these things I have kept; what am I still lacking?" 21 Jesus said to him, "If you wish to be complete, F436 go and sell R707 your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure R708 in heaven; and come, follow Me." 22 But when the young man heard this statement, he went away grieving; for he was one who owned much property.

23 And Jesus said to His disciples, "Truly I say to you, it R709 is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. 24 "Again I say to you, it R710 is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God." 25 When the disciples heard this, they were very astonished and said, "Then who can be saved?" 26 And looking at them Jesus said to them, "With R711 people this is impossible, but with God all things are possible."

The Disciples' Reward

27 Then Peter said to Him, "Behold, we have left everything and followed You; what then will there be for us?" 28 And Jesus said to them, "Truly I say to you, that you who have followed Me, in the regeneration when the R712 Son of Man will sit on His F437 glorious throne, you R713 also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. 29 "And everyone R714 who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or F438 children or farms for My name's sake, will receive many F439 times as much, and will inherit eternal life. 30 "But R715 many who are first will be last; and the last, first.
