Luke 18:24-43 Darby’s Translation

24  But when Jesus saw that he became very sorrowful, he said, How difficultly shall those who have riches enter into the kingdom of God; 25  for it is easier for a camel to enter through a needle's eye than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. 26  And those who heard it said, And who can be saved? 27  But he said, The things that are impossible with men are possible with God. 28  And Peter said, Behold, we have left all things and have followed thee. 29  And he said to them, Verily I say to you, There is no one who has left home, or parents, or brethren, or wife, or children, for the kingdom of God's sake, 30  who shall not receive manifold more at this time, and in the coming age life eternal.

Jesus Foretells His Death a Third Time

31  And he took the twelve to [him] and said to them, Behold, we go up to Jerusalem, and all things that are written of the Son of man by the prophets shall be accomplished; 32  for he shall be delivered up to the nations, and shall be mocked, and insulted, and spit upon. 33  And when they have scourged [him] they will kill him; and on the third day he will rise again. 34  And they understood nothing of these things. And this word was hidden from them, and they did not know what was said.

A Blind Beggar Healed near Jericho

35  And it came to pass when he came into the neighbourhood of Jericho, a certain blind man sat by the wayside begging. 36  And when he heard the crowd passing, he inquired what this might be. 37  And they told him that Jesus the Nazaraean was passing by. 38  And he called out saying, Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me. 39  And those [who were] going before rebuked him that he might be silent; but he cried out so much the more, Son of David, have mercy on me. 40  And Jesus stood still, and commanded him to be led to him. And when he drew nigh he asked him [saying], 41  What wilt thou that I shall do to thee? And he said, Lord, that I may see. 42  And Jesus said to him, See: thy faith has healed thee. 43  And immediately he saw, and followed him, glorifying God. And all the people when they saw [it] gave praise to God.
