Matthew 19

Jack's Bible for 2014 700x400

1 And it came to pass, that when Jesus had finished these sayings, He departed from Galilee, and came into the coasts of Judea beyond Jordan;
2 And great multitudes followed Him; and He healed them there.
3 The Pharisees also came to Him, tempting Him, and saying to Him, Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for every cause?
4 And He answered and said to them, Have you not read, that he who made them at the beginning made them male and female, [Genesis 1:27]
5 And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they two shall be one flesh?
6 Wherefore they are no more two, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man put asunder. [Genesis 2:24]

7 They say to Him, Why did Moses then command to give a writing of divorcement, and to divorce her? [Deuteronomy 24:1-4]
8 He said to them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts allowed you to divorce your wives: but from the beginning it was not so.
9 And I say to you, Whoever shall divorce his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, commits adultery: and whoever marries her who is divorced does commit adultery.

10 His disciples say to him, If the case of the man be so with his wife, it is not good to marry.
11 But he said to them, All men cannot receive this saying, except they to whom it is given.
12 For there are some eunuchs, who were so born from their mother’s womb: and there are some eunuchs, who were made eunuchs of men: and there be eunuchs, who have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven’s sake. He that is able to receive it, let him receive it.

13 Then were there brought to Him little children, that He should put His hands on them, and pray: and the disciples rebuked them.
14 But Jesus said, Permit little children, and forbid them not, to come to me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.
15 And He laid His hands on them, and departed from there.
16 And, behold, one came and said to Him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?
17 And He said to him, Why call Me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if you will enter into life, keep the commandments.
18 He said to Him, Which? Jesus said, You shall do no murder, You shall not commit adultery, You shall not steal, You shall not bear false witness,
19 Honor your father and your mother: [Exodus 20:13-16] and, You shall love your neighbor as yourself. [Leviticus 19:18]

20 The young man said to Him, All these things have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet?
21 Jesus said to him, If you will be perfect, go and sell what you have, and give to the poor, and you shall have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.
22 But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions.
23 Then Jesus said to His disciples, Verily I say to you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven.
24 And again I say to you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

25  When His disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, Who then can be saved?
26 But Jesus beheld them, and said to them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.
27 Then Peter answered and said to Him, Behold, we have forsaken all, and followed You; therefore what shall we have?
28 And Jesus said to them, Verily I say to you, That you who have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of His glory, you also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
29 And every one that has forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for My name’s sake, shall receive a hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.
30 But many that are first shall be last; and the last shall be first.
