<​2/​> For the Kingdom of Heaven is like unto a man, an householder, who went, out early in the morning to hire labourers into his vineyard & & <​And​> when he had agreed with them <​the​> labourers for a penny a day, he sent them into his vineyard. & <​And​> he went out about the third hour, & some <​saw​> <​found​> other standing Idle in the market place, & said unto them, Go ye also into the vineyard, & whatsoever is right I will give you; & they went their way. & <​And​> again he went out, about the third <​sixth​> hour & ninth hour, & did likewise. & <​And​> about the eleventh hour he went out, & found others standing Idle, & saith <​said​> unto them, Why stand ye here all the day Idle? They say unto him, because no man hath hired us. He saith <​said​> unto them, Go ye also into <​2/​> the vineyard; & whatsoever is right ye shall receive. <​2/​> So when even was come, the lord of the vinyard saith <​said​> unto his steward, Call the labourers & give them their hire, begining at <​from​> the last unto the first. & <​And​> when they came that began about the eleventh hour, they received every man a penny. But when the first came, they supposed that they should have received more; & they likewise received every man a peny; & when they had received a penny, they murmerred against the good man of the house, saying, These last have wrought one hour only, & thou hast made them equal unto us who have borne the burden & the heat of the day. But he answered one of them, & said, Friend, I do thee no wrong; didst not thou agree with me for a penny? Take thine & go thy way; I will give unto this last even as unto thee. Is it not lawful for me to do what I will with mine own? Is thine eye evil, because I am good? So the last shall be first, & the first last; for <​&​> <​3/​> <​and​> many are called, but few chosen. <​3/​> & <​And​> Jesus, going up to Jerusalem, took the twelve Deciples apart in the way, & said unto them, Behold, we go up to Jerusalem, & the son of man shall be betrayed unto the Chief Priests, & unto the Scribes, & they shall condemn him to death; & <​And​> shall deliver him to the gentiles to mock, & to scourge, & to crusify; & <​And​> <​4/​> the third day he shall rise again. <​4/​> Then came to him the mother of Zebedees Children with her sons, worshiping Jesus, & desiring a certain thing of him. & <​And​> he said unto her, What wilt thou that I shall <​should​> do? & <​And​> she saith <​said​> unto him, Grant, that these my two Sons may sit, the one on thy right hand, & the other on thy left , in thy Kingdom. But Jesus answered & said, Ye know not what ye ask. Are ye able to drink of the cup that I shall drink of, & to be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with? They say unto him, We are able. & <​And​> he saith <​said​> unto them, Ye shall drink indeed of my cup, & be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with; but to set on my right hand, [p. 37 (first numbering)]
2/ For the Kingdom of Heaven is like unto a man, an householder, who went, out early in the morning to hire labourers into his vineyard & & And when he had agreed with the labourers for a penny a day, he sent them into his vineyard. And he went out about the third hour, & found other standing Idle in the market place, & said unto them, Go ye also into the vineyard, & whatsoever is right I will give you; & they went their way. And again he went out, about the sixth & ninth hour, & did likewise. And about the eleventh hour he went out, & found others standing Idle, & said unto them, Why stand ye here all the day Idle? They say unto him, because no man hath hired us. He said unto them, Go ye also into 2/ the vineyard; & whatsoever is right ye shall receive. 2/ So when even was come, the lord of the vinyard said unto his steward, Call the labourers & give them their hire, begining from the last unto the first. And when they came that began about the eleventh hour, they received every man a penny. But when the first came, they supposed that they should have received more; & they likewise received every man a peny; & when they had received a penny, they murmerred against the good man of the house, saying, These last have wrought one hour only, & thou hast made them equal unto us who have borne the burden & the heat of the day. But he answered one of them, & said, Friend, I do thee no wrong; didst not thou agree with me for a penny? Take thine & go thy way; I will give unto this last even as unto thee. Is it not lawful for me to do what I will with mine own? Is thine eye evil, because I am good? So the last shall be first, & the first last; 3/ and many called, but few chosen. 3/ And Jesus, going up to Jerusalem, took the twelve Deciples apart in the way, & said unto them, Behold, we go up to Jerusalem, & the son of man shall be betrayed unto the Chief Priests, & unto the Scribes, & they shall condemn him to death; And shall deliver him to the gentiles to mock, & to scourge, & to crusify; And 4/ the third day he shall rise again. 4/ Then came to him the mother of Zebedees Children with her sons, worshiping Jesus, & desiring a certain thing of him. And he said unto her, What wilt thou that I should do? And she said unto him, Grant, that these my two Sons may sit, the one on thy right hand, & the other on thy left , in thy Kingdom. But Jesus answered & said, Ye know not what ye ask. Are ye able to drink of the cup that I shall drink of, & to be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with? They say unto him, We are able. And he said unto them, Ye shall drink indeed of my cup, & be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with; but to set on my right hand, [p. 37 (first numbering)]
