20:1 For the kingdom of heaven is like to a man [that is] a
householder, who went out early in the morning to hire laborers
into his vineyard.
20:2 And when he had agreed with the laborers for a penny a day,
he sent them into his vineyard.
20:3 And he went out about the third hour, and saw others
standing idle in the market-place,
20:4 And said to them, Go ye also into the vineyard; and
whatever is right, I will give you. And they departed.
20:5 Again he went out about the sixth and ninth hour, and did
20:6 And about the eleventh hour he went out, and found others
standing idle, and saith to them, Why stand ye here all the day
20:7 They say to him, Because no man hath hired us. He saith to
them, Go ye also into the vineyard; and whatever is right,
[that] shall ye receive.
20:8 So when evening was come, the lord of the vineyard saith to
his steward, Call the laborers, and give them [their] hire,
beginning from the last to the first.
20:9 And when they came that [were hired] about the eleventh
hour, they received every man a penny.
20:10 But when the first came, they supposed that they should
receive more; and they likewise received every man a penny.
20:11 And when they had received [it], they murmured against the
master of the house.
20:12 Saying, These last have wrought [but] one hour, and thou
hast made them equal to us, who have borne the burden and heat
of the day.
20:13 But he answered one of them, and said, Friend, I do thee
no wrong: didst thou not agree with me for a penny?
20:14 Take [that] which [is] thine, and depart: I will give to
this last, even as to thee.
20:15 Is it not lawful for me to do what I will with my own? is
thy eye evil because I am good?
20:16 So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many
are called, but few chosen.
20:17 And Jesus going up to Jerusalem, took the twelve disciples
apart in the way, and said to them,
20:18 Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man will be
betrayed to the chief priests, and to the scribes, and they
will condemn him to death,
20:19 And will deliver him to the Gentiles to mock, and to
scourge, and to crucify [him]: and the third day he will rise
20:20 Then came to him the mother of Zebedee's children, with
her sons, worshiping [him], and desiring a certain thing of
20:21 And he said to her, What wilt thou: She saith to him,
Grant that these my two sons may sit, the one on thy right
hand, and the other on the left in thy kingdom.
20:22 But Jesus answered and said, Ye know not what ye ask. Are
ye able to drink of the cup that I shall drink of, and to be
baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with? They say to
him, We are able.
20:23 And he saith to them, Ye 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, but
[it shall be given] to them for whom it is prepared by my
20:24 And when the ten heard [it], they were moved with
indignation against the two brethren.
20:25 But Jesus called them [to him], and said, Ye know that the
princes of the Gentiles exercise dominion over them, and they
that are great exercise authority upon them.
20:26 But it shall not be so among you: but whoever will be
great among you, let him be your minister;
20:27 And whoever will be chief among you, let him be your
20:28 Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered to, but
to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.
20:29 And as they departed from Jericho, a great multitude
20:30 And behold, two 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.
20:31 And the multitude rebuked them, that they should hold
their peace: but they cried the more, saying, Have mercy on us,
O Lord, [thou] son of David.
20:32 And Jesus stood still, and called them, and said, What
will ye that I shall do to you?
20:33 They say to him, Lord, that our eyes may be opened.
20:34 So Jesus had compassion [on them], and touched their eyes:
and immediately their eyes received sight, and they followed
