18:4 And he would not for a while: but afterward he said within himself, Though I fear not God, nor regard man;
18:5 yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest she wear me out by her continual coming.
18:6 And the Lord said, Hear what the unrighteous judge saith.

18:22 And when Jesus heard it, he said unto him, One thing thou lackest yet: sell all that thou hast, and distribute unto the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, follow me.
18:23 But when he heard these things, he became exceeding sorrowful; for he was very rich.
18:24 And Jesus seeing him said, How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God!
18:26 And they that heard it said, Then who can be saved?
18:28 And Peter said, Lo, we have left our own, and followed thee.
18:29 And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or wife, or brethren, or parents, or children, for the kingdom of God`s sake,
18:31 And he took unto him the twelve, and said unto them, Behold, we go up to Jerusalem, and all the things that are written through the prophets shall be accomplished unto the Son of man.

18:38 And he cried, saying, Jesus, thou son of David, have mercy on me.

18:41 What wilt thou that I should do unto thee? And he said, Lord, that I may receive my sight.
18:42 And Jesus said unto him, Receive thy sight; thy faith hath made thee whole.
