and the two will be one flesh. So you are no longer two, but one meat.

9 But what God has united, man must not separate.

10 At home the disciples asked him again about it.

11 He answered them, `` Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another is committing adultery against her.

12 And if she divorces her husband and marries someone else, she commits adultery.

The Children's Blessing: 10: 13–16

13 Children were brought to him to touch. But the disciples rebuked the people.

15 Amen, I say to you, anyone who does not accept the kingdom of God like a child will not enter it.

16 And he took the children in his arms; then he laid his hands on them and blessed them.

Wealth and Succession: 10.17–31

17 As Jesus was on his way again, a man ran up to him and fell on his knees before him and asked him, Good Master, what must I do to inherit eternal life?

18 Jesus answered: Why do you call me good? Nobody is good except the one God.

19 You know the commandments: You should not kill, you should not commit adultery, you should not steal, you should not testify wrongly, you should not commit robbery; honor your father and mother!

20 He replied, `` Teacher, I have kept all these commandments from my youth.

21 Jesus looked at him, embraced him and said, "One thing is still missing in you: Go, sell what you have, give it to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven;" then come and follow me!

22 But the man was sad when he heard this, and went away sad; for he had a great fortune.

23 Jesus looked at his disciples and said to them, How difficult it is for people who have much to enter the kingdom of God!

24 The disciples were dismayed at his words. But Jesus said to them again: My children, how difficult it is to enter the kingdom of God!

25 It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.

26 But they were frightened beyond measure and said to one another, "Who then can be saved?"

27 Jesus looked at them and said, It is impossible for men, but not for God; because everything is possible for God.

28 Peter said to him, “Look, we have left everything and followed you.

30 will receive a hundredfold for it. Now at this time he will keep houses and brothers, sisters and mothers, children and fields, albeit under persecution, and eternal life in the world to come.

31 Many first will be last and the last first.

The third announcement of Jesus' suffering and resurrection: 10: 32-34

32 While they were on the way up to Jerusalem, Jesus went ahead. People were amazed at him, but those who followed him were afraid. So he gathered the twelve around him again and announced to them what was in store for him.

33 He said, Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem; and the Son of Man is handed over to the high priests and scribes; they will condemn him to death and deliver him up to the Gentiles;

34 they will mock him, spit on him, scourge him and kill him. And after three days he will be resurrected.

Of Service and Rule: 10.35–45

35 Then James and John, the sons of Zebedee, came to him and said, Master, we want you to grant us a request.

36 He answered, What should I do for you?

37 They said to him, In your glory let one of us sit on your right and the other on your left.

38 Jesus replied, You do not know what you are asking. Can you drink the cup that I drink or take the baptism with which I am baptized?

39 They replied: We can. Then Jesus said to them, You will drink the cup that I drink and receive the baptism with which I am baptized.

40 But the place on my right hand and on my left I have not to forgive; there will be those for whom it is intended.

41 When the ten other disciples heard this, they became very angry with James and John.

42 Then Jesus called them and said, You know that those who are considered rulers oppress their peoples and that their great people use their power against them.

43 But it should not be so with you, but whoever wants to be great with you must be your servant.

44 and whoever wants to be first with you must be the slave of all.

45 For the Son of Man did not come to be served either, but to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many.

The Healing of a Blind Man at Jericho: 10.46–52

46 They came to Jericho. When he was leaving Jericho with his disciples and a large crowd, a blind beggar, Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, was sitting by the road.

47 As soon as he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he called out, `` Son of David, Jesus, have mercy on me!

48 Many told him to be silent. But he shouted even louder: Son of David, have mercy on me!

49 Jesus stopped and said, "Call him!" They called the blind man and said to him: Have courage, get up, he is calling you.

50 So he threw away his cloak, got up, and ran towards Jesus.

51 And Jesus asked him, What do you want me to do to you? The blind man replied: Rabbuni, I want to be able to see.

52 Jesus said to him, "Go!" Your faith saved you. At the same moment he could see and he followed Jesus on his way.
