Verily I say unto you, Whosoever will not receive the kingdom of God as a <​5/​> little child, shall in no wise enter there in. <​6<​5​>​> And a certain ruler asked him, saying, Good master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life? and he <​Jesus​> said unto him, Why callest thou me good? None is good, save one, that is God. Thou knowest the commandments; Do not commit adultry. Do not kill. Do not steal. do <​Do​> not bear fals wittness. Honor thy father and thy Mother. And he said, All these have I kept from my youth up. Now when Jesus heard these things, he said unto him, <​Yet​> thou lackest one thing; sell all that thou hast, and distribute unto the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me. And when he heard this, he was very sorrowfull; for he was very rich. And <​when​> Jesus saw that he was very sorrowfull, he said, How hardly shall they who have riches enter in to the kingdom of God! For it is easier for a Camel to go through a needels eye, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. And they who heard, said unto him, Who then can be saved? And he said unto them, It is impossable for them who trust in riches, to enter into the kingdom of God; but he who forsaketh the things which <​6/​> are of this world, it is possable with God, that he should enter in. <​6/​> Then Peter said; <​Lo!​> we have lift <​left​> all, and followed thee. And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, there is no man who has left house, of <​or​> parents, or breatheren, or wife, or children, for the kingdom of God’s shake <​sake​>, who shall not receive many fold more in this present time; and <​in​> the <​7/​> world to come, life everlasting. <​7/​> Then he took unto him the twelve, and said unto them, Behold, we go up to Jerusalem, and all things <​which are​> written by the Prophets concerning the son of man, shall be accomplished, For he shall be delivered unto the gentiles, and shall be mocked, and spitefully entreated, and spit<​ed​> upon spitted on; and they shall scourge and put him to death; and the third day he shall rise again. And they understood none of these sayings things; and this saying was hid from them; neither remembered they the things which were spoken. <​8/​> And it came to pass, as he was come nigh unto Jericho, a certain blind man sat by the way side begging. And hearing the multitude pass by, he asked what it meant. And they told him that Jesus of Nazereth passed by. And he cryed, saying, Jesus, son of David, have mercy on me. And they who went before, rebuked him, telling him, that he should hold his peace; but he [p. 90 (second numbering)]
