§ 31Mk. 10, 41.Mk. 10, 42.1And when the ten heard, they were moved with anger against James and John.2 And Jesus called them, and said unto them, Yet know that the rulers of the nations 3are their lords; and their great men are set in authority over them.Mk. 10, 43. Not thus shall it be amongst you:Arabic, p. 118 but he amongst you that would be great, let him be to you a4 servant; and however of you would be first,1Mk. 10, 44.Mt. 20, 28.Lk. 13, 22.Lk. 13, 23. let him be to every man a5 bond-servant: even as the Son of man also came not to be served, but to serve, and6 to give himself a ransom in place of the many. He said this, and was going about7 the villages and the cities, and teaching; and he went to Jerusalem. And a man asked him, Are those that shall be saved few? Jesus answered and said unto8 them, Strive ye to enter at the narrow door: I say unto you now,Lk. 13, 24.Lk. 13, 25. that many shall9 seek to enter, and shall not be able2 —from the time when the master of the house riseth, and closeth the door, and ye shall be standing without, and shall knock at the door, and shall begin to say, Our lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and10 say, I say unto you, I know you not whence ye are: and ye shall begin to say,Lk. 13, 26.Lk. 13, 27.11 Before thee we did eat and drink, and in our markets didst thou teach; and he shall say unto you, I know you not whence ye are; depart3 from me, ye servants12 of untruth. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye see Abraham,Lk. 13, 28. and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, while ye are13 put forth without. And they shall come from the east and the west,Lk. 13, 29.Lk. 13, 30. and from the14 north and the south, and shall sit down in the kingdom of God. And there shall then be last that have become first, and first that have become last.
15, 16And when Jesus entered and passed through Jericho,Lk. 19, 1.Lk. 19, 2.Lk. 19, 3. there was a man named Zacchæus,17 rich, and chief of the publicans. And he desired to see Jesus who he was; and he was not able for the pressure of the crowd, because Zacchæus was little of stature.18 And he hastened,Arabic, p. 119 and went before Jesus, and went up into an unripe fig19 tree4 to see Jesus: for he was to pass thus. And when Jesus came to that place, he saw him, and said unto him, Make haste,Lk. 19, 4.Lk. 19, 5. and come down, Zacchæus:20 to-day I must be in thy house. And he hastened, and came down,Lk. 19, 6.Lk. 19, 7.Lk. 19, 8. and received21 him joyfully. And when they all saw, they murmured, and said, He hath gone in22 and lodged with a man that is a sinner. So Zacchæus stood, and said unto Jesus, My Lord, now half of my possessions I give to the poor, and what I have unjustly23 taken5 from every man I give him fourfold. Jesus said unto him,Lk. 19, 9.Lk. 19, 10. To-day is salvation24 come to this house, because this man also is a6 son of Abraham. For the Son of man came to seek and save the thing that was lost.
25Lk. 18, 35a.7Mt. 20, 29b.Lk. 18, 35b.Mk. 10, 46b.Lk. 18, 36.Lk. 18, 37.Mk. 10, 47a.Lk. 18, 38.Lk. 18, 39a.Mk. 10, 48b.Mk. 10, 49.And when Jesus went out of Jericho, he and his disciples, there came after him26 a great multitude. And there was a blind man sitting by the way side begging.27 And his name was Timæus, the son of Timæus. And he heard the sound of the28 multitude passing, and asked, Who is this? They said unto him, Jesus the Nazarene29 passeth by. And when he heard that it was Jesus, he called out with a loud30 voice, and said, Jesus, son of David, have mercy on me. And those that went before Jesus were rebuking him, that he should hold his peace: but he cried the31 more, and said, Son of David, have mercy on me. And Jesus stood, and commanded that they should call him. And they called the blind man, and said unto32 him, Be of good courage, and rise; for, behold, he calleth thee. And the blind33 man threw away his garment, and rose, and came to Jesus.Mk. 10, 50.Mk. 10, 51. Jesus said unto him, What dost thou wish that I should do unto thee? And that blind man said unto him, My Lord and Master, that my eyes may be opened, so that I may see thee.834 And Jesus had compassion on him,Arabic, p. 120 and touched his eyes, and said unto35 him. See; for thy faith hath saved thee. And immediately he received his sight,9 and came after him, and praised God;Mt. 20, 34a.Lk. 18, 42b.Lk. 18, 43. and all the people that saw praised God.
36And he spake a parable because he was nearing10 Jerusalem,Lk. 19, 11b.Lk. 19, 12. and they supposed37 that at that time the kingdom of God was about to appear. He said unto them, A man, a son of a great race, went into a far country, to receive a kingdom,Lk. 19, 13. and38 return. And he called his ten servants, and gave them ten shares, and said unto 39them, Trade till the time of my coming. But the people of his city hated him,Lk. 19, 14.Lk. 19, 15. and40 sent messengers after him, and said, We will not that this man reign over us. And when he had received a1 kingdom, and returned, he said that the servants to whom he had given the money should be called unto him, that he might know what each41 of them had traded. And the first came, and said, My lord,Lk. 19, 16.Lk. 19, 17.Lk. 19, 18.Lk. 19, 19.Lk. 19, 20.Lk. 19, 21. thy share hath gained42 ten shares. The king said unto him, Thou good and faithful servant, who hast43 been found faithful in a little, be thou set over ten districts. And the second came,44 and said, My lord, thy portion hath gained five portions. And he said unto him45 also, And thou shalt be set over five districts. And another came, and said, My46 lord, here is thy portion, which was with me laid by in a napkin: I feared thee, because thou art a hard man, and takest what thou didst not leave, and seekest47 what thou didst not give, and reapest what thou didst not sow.Lk. 19, 22. His lord said unto him, From thy mouth shall I judge thee, thou wicked and idle servant, who wast untrustworthy. Thou knewest that I am a hard man, and take what I did not48 leave, and reap what I did not sow: why didst thou not put my money at usury,Lk. 19, 23.Lk. 19, 24.49 and so I might come and seek it, with its gains? And he said unto those that were standing in front of him, Take from him the share,Lk. 19, 25.Lk. 19, 26. and give it to him that hath50, 51 ten shares. They said unto him, Our lord, he hath ten shares. He said unto them,Arabic, p. 121 I say unto you, Every one that hath shall be given unto; and52 he that hath not, that which he hath also shall be taken from him.Lk. 19, 27. And those mine enemies who would not that I should reign over them, bring them, and slay them before me.
