and there be Eunuchs, which have made themselves Eunuchs, for the Kingdom of Heavens sake. He that is able to receive, let him receive <​5/​> my sayings. <​5/​> Then were there brought unto him little children, that he should put hands on them & pray. & <​And​> the deciples rebuked them, saying, There is no need, for Jesus hath said such shall be saved. But Jesus said, Suffer little children to come unto me, & forbid them not, for of such is the Kingdom of Heaven. & <​And​> he laid hands on them, <​6/​> & departed thence. <​6/​> And behold, one came & said, Good Master; what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life? & <​And​> he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? There is none good but one, that is, God; but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments, He saith unto him, which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder <​not kill;​> Thou shalt not commit adultery; Thou shalt not steal; Thou shalt not bear false witness; Honour thy father & mother; & Thou shalt love thy neighbour, as thy self. The young man saith unto him, All these things have I kept from my youth up; what lack I yet? Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go sell that thou hast, & give to the poor, & thou shalt have treasure in Heaven; & come & follow me. But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorro<​7/​> wful; for he had great possessions. <​7/​> Then said Jesus unto his deciples, verily I say unto you, that a rich man shall hardly enter into the Kingdom of Heaven. & <​And​> again I say unto you, It is easier for a Camel to go through the eye of a needle , then for a rich man <​8/​> to enter into the Kingdom of Heaven God. <​8/​> When his Deciples heard this they were exceedingly amazed, saying, Who then can be saved? But Jesus beheld their thoughts, & said unto them, With men this is imposable; but if they will forsake all things for my <​9​> sake, with God, whatsoever <​things​> I speak, are posible. <​9/​> Then answered Peter & said unto him, Behold, we have forsaken all, & followed thee<​;​> What shall we have therefore? & <​And​> Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, that ye who have followed me, shall, in the resurrection, when the son of man shall come sitting in <​on​> the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, Judgeing the twelve tribes of Iisrael. & <​And​> every one that have forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands for my names sake, shall receive a hundred fold; & shall inherit everlasting life. But many of the first, shall be last, & the last first.

and there be Eunuchs, which have made themselves Eunuchs, for the Kingdom of Heavens sake. He that is able to receive, let him receive 5/ my sayings. 5/ Then were there brought unto him little children, that he should put hands on them & pray. And the deciples rebuked them, saying, There is no need, for Jesus hath said such shall be saved. But Jesus said, Suffer little children to come unto me, & forbid them not, for of such is the Kingdom of Heaven. And he laid hands on them, 6/ & departed thence. 6/ And behold, one came & said, Good Master; what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life? And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? There is none good but one, that is, God; but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments, He saith unto him, which? Jesus said, Thou shalt not kill; Thou shalt not commit adultery; Thou shalt not steal; Thou shalt not bear false witness; Honour thy father & mother; & Thou shalt love thy neighbour, as thy self. The young man saith unto him, All these things have I kept from my youth up; what lack I yet? Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go sell that thou hast, & give to the poor, & thou shalt have treasure in Heaven; & come & follow me. But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorro7/ wful; for he had great possessions. 7/ Then said Jesus unto his deciples, verily I say unto you, that a rich man shall hardly enter into the Kingdom of Heaven. And again I say unto you, It is easier for a Camel to go through the eye of a needle , then for a rich man 8/ to enter into the Kingdom of God. 8/ When his Deciples heard this they were exceedingly amazed, saying, Who then can be saved? But Jesus beheld their thoughts, & said unto them, With men this is imposable; but if they will forsake all things for my 9 sake, with God, whatsoever things I speak, are posible. 9/ Then answered Peter & said unto him, Behold, we have forsaken all, & followed thee; What shall we have therefore? And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, that ye who have followed me, shall, in the resurrection, when the son of man shall come sitting on the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, Judgeing the twelve tribes of Iisrael. And every one that have forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands for my names sake, shall receive a hundred fold; & shall inherit everlasting life. But many of the first, shall be last, & the last first.
