Luke 18:24-43 English Standard Version

24  Jesus, seeing that he had become sad, said, "How difficult it is for those who have wealth to enter the kingdom of God! 25  For it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the kingdom of God." 26  Those who heard it said, "Then who can be saved?" 27  But he said, "What is impossible with men is possible with God." 28  And Peter said, "See, we have left our homes and followed you." 29  And he said to them, "Truly, I say to you, there is no one who has left house or wife or brothers[1] or parents or children, for the sake of the kingdom of God, 30  who will not receive many times more in this time, and in the age to come eternal life."

Jesus Foretells His Death a Third Time

31  And taking the twelve, he said to them, "See, we are going up to Jerusalem, and everything that is written about the Son of Man by the prophets will be accomplished. 32  For he will be delivered over to the Gentiles and will be mocked and shamefully treated and spit upon. 33  And after flogging him, they will kill him, and on the third day he will rise." 34  But they understood none of these things. This saying was hidden from them, and they did not grasp what was said.

A Blind Beggar Healed near Jericho

35  As he drew near to Jericho, a blind man was sitting by the roadside begging. 36  And hearing a crowd going by, he inquired what this meant. 37  They told him, "Jesus of Nazareth is passing by." 38  And he cried out, "Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!" 39  And those who were in front rebuked him, telling him to be silent. But he cried out all the more, "Son of David, have mercy on me!" 40  And Jesus stopped and commanded him to be brought to him. And when he came near, he asked him, 41   "What do you want me to do for you?" He said, "Lord, let me recover my sight." 42  And Jesus said to him, "Recover your sight; your faith has made you well." 43  And immediately he recovered his sight and followed him, glorifying God. And all the people, when they saw it, gave praise to God.
