1902 Rotherham's Emphasized Bible (EBR)
1 Christ, by the similitude of the labourers in the vineyard, sheweth that God is debtor unto no man: 17 foretelleth his passion: 20 by answering the mother of Zebedee's children, teacheth his disciples to be lowly: 30 and giveth two blind men their sight.
20:1 ¶ For the kingdom of the heavens, is like, a man, a householder,who went forth with the morning, to hire labourers into his vineyard;
20:2 and, when he had agreed with the labourers for a denary the day, he sent them into his vineyard.
20:3 And, going forth about the third hour, he saw others, standing in the market-place, unemployed;
20:4 and, to them, he saidye also, go your way into the vineyard, and, whatsoever may be right, I will give you;
20:5 and, they, departed. And, again, going forth about the sixth and ninth hour, he did likewise.
20:6 And, about the eleventh, going forth, he found others, standing, and saith unto themWhy, here, stand ye, all the day, unemployed?
20:7 They say unto himBecause, no one, hath hired, us. He saith unto themYe also, go your way into the vineyard.
20:8 And, when evening came, the master of the vineyard saith unto his stewardCall the labourers, and pay the hire,beginning from the last, unto the first.
20:9 And they of the eleventh hour, coming, received severally a denary.
20:10 And, when the first came, they supposed that, more, they should receive,and, they also, received severally a denary.
20:11 And, having received it, they began to murmur against the householder, saying
20:12 These last, one hour, wrought, and thou hast made them, equal unto us, who have borne the burden of the day, and the scorching heat.
20:13 And, he, answering, unto one of them, said,Friend! I wrong thee not: Was it not, for a denary, thou didst agree with me?
20:14 Take thine own, and go thy way; but I please, unto this last, to give, as also to thee:
20:15 Is it not allowed me to do, what I please, with my own? or is, thine eye, evil, because I good?
20:16 Thus, shall beThe last first, and the first last.
20:17 ¶ And, Jesus, being about to go up unto Jerusalem, took unto him the twelve [disciples], apart, and, in the way, he said unto them
20:18 Lo! we are going up unto Jerusalem; and, the Son of Man, will be delivered up unto the chief-priests and Scribes, and they will condemn him, [to death],
20:19 And deliver him up unto the nations, to mock and to scourge and to crucify,and, on the third day, he will, arise.
20:20 ¶ Then came unto him the mother of the sons of Zebedee, with her sons, bowing down, and asking something from him.
20:21 And, he, said to herWhat desirest thou? She saith unto himBid, that these my two sons may sit, one on thy right hand, and one on thy left, in thy kingdom.
20:22 But Jesus, answering, saidYe know not what ye are asking: Are ye able to drink the cup, which, I, am about to drink; They say unto himWe are able.
20:23 He saith unto themMy cup, indeed, ye shall drink; but, to sit on my right hand and on my left, is not mine to give,except unto those for whom it hath been prepared by my Father.
20:24 And the ten, hearing, were sorely displeased, concerning the two brethren.
20:25 But, Jesus, calling them near, saidYe know that, the rulers of the nations, lord it over them, and, the great ones, wield authority over them:
20:26 Not so, is it, among you,but, whosoever shall desire, among you, to become, great, shall be, your minister;
20:27 And, whosoever shall desire, among you, to be first, shall be, your servant:
20:28 Just as, the Son of Man, came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom instead of many.
20:29 ¶ And, as they were going forth from Jericho, there followed him a great multitude;
20:30 and lo! two blind men, sitting beside the road, hearing that Jesus was passing by, cried aloud sayingLord! have mercy on us! Son of David!
20:31 But the multitude rebuked them, that they might hold their peace. But, they, the more, cried aloud, sayingLord, have mercy on us! Son of David!
20:32 And, standing still, Jesus called them, and saidWhat desire ye I should do for you?
20:33 They say unto himLord! that, our eyes, may open.
20:34 And, moved with compassion, Jesus touched their eyes,and, straightway, they recovered sight, and followed him.
