20:1 For the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that was a householder, who went out early in the morning to hire laborers into his vineyard.
20:2 And when he had agreed with the laborers for a shilling a day, he sent them into his vineyard.
20:4 and to them he said, Go ye also into the vineyard, and whatsoever is right I will give you. And they went their way.
20:5 Again he went out about the sixth and the ninth hour, and did likewise.
20:7 They say unto him, Because no man hath hired us. He saith unto them, Go ye also into the vineyard.
20:8 And when even was come, the lord of the vineyard saith unto his steward, Call the laborers, and pay them their hire, beginning from the last unto the first.
20:9 And when they came that [were hired] about the eleventh hour, they received every man a shilling.
20:10 And when the first came, they supposed that they would receive more; and they likewise received every man a shilling.
20:11 And when they received it, they murmured against the householder,
20:13 But he answered and said to one of them, Friend, I do thee no wrong: didst not thou agree with me for a shilling?
20:14 Take up that which is thine, and go thy way; it is my will to give unto this last, even as unto thee.
20:15 Is it not lawful for me to do what I will with mine own? or is thine eye evil, because I am good?
20:16 So the last shall be first, and the first last.
20:17 And as Jesus was going up to Jerusalem, he took the twelve disciples apart, and on the way he said unto them,
20:18 Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man shall be delivered unto the chief priests and scribes; and they shall condemn him to death,
20:20 Then came to him the mother of the sons of Zebedee with her sons, worshipping [him], and asking a certain thing of him.
20:22 But Jesus answered and said, Ye know not what ye ask. Are ye able to drink the cup that I am about to drink? They say unto him, We are able.
20:24 And when the ten heard it, they were moved with indignation concerning the two brethren.
20:26 Not so shall it be among you: but whosoever would become great among you shall be your minister;
20:27 and whosoever would be first among you shall be your servant:
20:29 And as they went out from Jericho, a great multitude followed him.
20:31 And the multitude rebuked them, that they should hold their peace: but they cried out the more, saying, Lord, have mercy on us, thou son of David.
20:32 And Jesus stood still, and called them, and said, What will ye that I should do unto you?
20:33 They say unto him, Lord, that our eyes may be opened.
20:34 And Jesus, being moved with compassion, touched their eyes; and straightway they received their sight, and followed him.
