The young Rom. 13.9. man saith unto him, All these things have I Gal. 5. 14. M*. 10. kept from my youth up: what lack I yet? Then 21 Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, "One thing thou lackest go thy way, sell "whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, "and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and 22" come, take up the cross, and follow me." And he was sad at that saying, and went away grieved: for he had great possessions.

And the disciples were astonished at his words. But Jesus answereth again, and saith unto them, "Children, how "hard is it for them that trust in riches to Job 31. 25" enter into the kingdom of God! It is easier "for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, 1 Tim. 6. "than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom 26" of God." And they were astonished out of measure, saying among themselves, Who then 27 can be saved? And Jesus looking upon them saith, "With men it is impossible, but not with "God: for with God all things are possible." Jer. 32.

AND they were in the way going up to Jerusalem; and Jesus went before them: and they were amazed; and as they followed, they were afraid. And he took again the twelve, and began to tell them what things should happen 33 unto him, saying, "Behold, we go up to JeruL. 18.

THEN came to him the mother of Zebedee's children with her sons, 2 worshipping him, and 21 desiring a certain thing of him. And he said unto her," What wilt thou?" She saith unto him, Grant that these my two sons may sit, the one on thy right hand, and the other on the 22 left, in thy kingdom. 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 a Acts 12.

And when the 24 ten heard it, they were moved with indignation against the two brethren. But Jesus called them 25 unto him, and said, "Ye know that the princes "of the Gentiles 2 exercise dominion over them, "and they that are great exercise authority b 1 Pet. 5. 6 upon them.

108. Christ restoreth sight to Bartimæus. AND they came to Jericho: and as he went out of Jericho with his disciples and a great number of people, blind Bartimæus, the son of Timæus, sat by the highway side begging. And L. 18. hearing the multitude pass by, he asked what it 36 meant. And they told him, that Jesus of Naza- 37 reth passeth by. And he began to cry out, and M. 10. say, Jesus, thou son of David, have mercy on 47 me. And many charged him that he should 48 hold his peace: but he cried the more a great deal, Thou son of David, have mercy on me. And Jesus stood still, and commanded him to 49 be called. And they call the blind man, saying unto him, Be of good comfort, rise; he calleth thee. And he, casting away his garment, rose, 50 and came to Jesus. And Jesus answered and 51 said unto him, "What wilt thou that I should "do unto thee?" The blind man said unto him, M". 20. Lord, that I might receive my sight. So Jesus 34 had compassion, and said unto him, "Receive L. 18.42

AND, behold, there was a man named Zacchæus, which was the chief among the publicans, 3 and he was rich. And he sought to see Jesus who he was; and could not for the press, be4 cause he was little of stature. And he ran before, and climbed up into a sycomore tree to 5 see him for he was to pass that way. And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up, and saw him, and said unto him, "Zacchæus, "make haste, and come down; for to day I 6" must abide at thy house." And he made haste, 7 and came down, and received him joyfully. And when they saw it, they all murmured, saying, That he was gone to be guest with a man that 8 is a sinner. And Zacchæus stood, and said unto the Lord; Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor; and if I have taken any thing from any man 2 by false accusation, I re- Ex. 22.1. 9 store him fourfold.
