Matthew 19:16-29

The Rich Young Man

16 a  And behold, a man came up to him, saying, “Teacher, what good deed must I do to b  have c  eternal life?” 17And he said to him, Why do you ask me about what is good? There is only one who is good. d  If you would enter life, keep the commandments.” 18He said to him, “Which ones?” And Jesus said, e  “You shall not murder, You shall not commit adultery, You shall not steal, You shall not bear false witness, 19Honor your father and mother, and f  You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” 20The young man said to him, g  All these I have kept. What do I still lack?” 21Jesus said to him, If you would be h  perfect, go i  sell what you possess and give to the poor, and you will have j  treasure in heaven; and come, follow me.” 22 k  When the young man heard this he went away sorrowful, for he had great possessions.

23And Jesus said to his disciples, Truly, I say to you l  only with difficulty will a rich person enter the kingdom of heaven. 24 m  Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter n  the kingdom of God.” 25When the disciples heard this, they were greatly astonished, saying, “Who then can be saved?” 26But Jesus o  looked at them and said, p  With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” 27Then Peter said in reply, “See q  we have left everything and followed you. What then will we have?” 28Jesus said to them, Truly, I say to you, in the new world
