Matthew 19


Mat 19:1 When Jesus had finished these words, He departed from Galilee and came into the region of Judea beyond the Jordan;
Mat 19:2 and large crowds followed Him, and He healed them there.
Mat 19:3 Some Pharisees came to Jesus, testing Him and asking," Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for any reason at all?"
Mat 19:4 And He answered and said," Have you not read that He who created them from the beginning made them male and female,
Mat 19:5 and said, 'For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh'?
Mat 19:6 So they are no longer two, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let no man separate."
Mat 19:7 They *said to Him," Why then did Moses command to give her a certificate of divorce and send her away?"
Mat 19:8 He *said to them," Because of your hardness of heart Moses permitted you to divorce your wives; but from the beginning it has not been this way.
Mat 19:9 And I say to you, whoever divorces his wife, except for immorality, and marries another woman commits adultery."
Mat 19:10 The disciples *said to Him," If the relationship of the man with his wife is like this, it is better not to marry."
Mat 19:11 But He said to them," Not all men can accept this statement, but only those to whom it has been given.
Mat 19:12 For there are eunuchs who were born that way from their mother's womb; and there are eunuchs who were made eunuchs by men; and there are also eunuchs who made themselves eunuchs for the sake of the kingdom of heaven. He who is able to accept this, let him accept it."
Mat 19:13 Then some children were brought to Him so that He might lay His hands on them and pray; and the disciples rebuked them.
Mat 19:14 But Jesus said," Let the children alone, and do not hinder them from coming to Me; for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."
Mat 19:15 After laying His hands on them, He departed from there.
Mat 19:16 And someone came to Him and said," Teacher, what good thing shall I do that I may obtain eternal life?"
Mat 19:17 And He said to him," Why are you asking Me about what is good? There is only One who is good; but if you wish to enter into life, keep the commandments."
Mat 19:18 Then he *said to Him," Which ones?" And Jesus said," You shall not commit murder; You shall not commit adultery; You shall not steal; You shall not bear false witness;
Mat 19:19 Honor your father and mother; and You shall love your neighbor as yourself."
Mat 19:20 The young man *said to Him," All these things I have kept; what am I still lacking?"
Mat 19:21 Jesus said to him," If you wish to be complete, go and sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me."
Mat 19:22 But when the young man heard this statement, he went away grieving; for he was one who owned much property.
Mat 19:23 And Jesus said to His disciples," Truly I say to you, it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven.
Mat 19:24 Again I say to you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God."
Mat 19:25 When the disciples heard this, they were very astonished and said," Then who can be saved?"
Mat 19:26 And looking at them Jesus said to them," With people this is impossible, but with God all things are possible."
Mat 19:27 Then Peter said to Him," Behold, we have left everything and followed You; what then will there be for us?"
Mat 19:28 And Jesus said to them," Truly I say to you, that you who have followed Me, in the regeneration when the Son of Man will sit on His glorious throne, you also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
Mat 19:29 And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or farms for My name's sake, will receive many times as much, and will inherit eternal life.
Mat 19:30 But many who are first will be last; and the last, first.

King James Version New American Standard Koine Greek
Mat 19:1 And it came to pass, that when Jesus had finished these sayings, he departed from Galilee, and came into the coasts of Judaea beyond Jordan; (kjv) Mat 19:1 When Jesus had finished these words, He departed from Galilee and came into the region of Judea beyond the Jordan; Mat 19:1 καὶ ἐγένετο ὅτε ἐτέλεσεν ὁ ἰησοῦς τοὺς λόγους τούτους, μετῆρεν ἀπὸ τῆς γαλιλαίας καὶ ἦλθεν εἰς τὰ ὅρια τῆς ἰουδαίας πέραν τοῦ ἰορδάνου.
Mat 19:2 And great multitudes followed him; and he healed them there. (kjv) Mat 19:2 and large crowds followed Him, and He healed them there. Mat 19:2 καὶ ἠκολούθησαν αὐτῶ ὄχλοι πολλοί, καὶ ἐθεράπευσεν αὐτοὺς ἐκεῖ.
Mat 19:3 The Pharisees also came unto him, tempting him, and saying unto him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every cause? (kjv) Mat 19:3 Some Pharisees came to Jesus, testing Him and asking," Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for any reason at all?" Mat 19:3 καὶ προσῆλθον αὐτῶ φαρισαῖοι πειράζοντες αὐτὸν καὶ λέγοντες, εἰ ἔξεστιν ἀνθρώπῳ ἀπολῦσαι τὴν γυναῖκα αὐτοῦ κατὰ πᾶσαν αἰτίαν;
Mat 19:4 And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, (kjv) Mat 19:4 And He answered and said," Have you not read that He who created them from the beginning made them male and female, Mat 19:4 ὁ δὲ ἀποκριθεὶς εἶπεν, οὐκ ἀνέγνωτε ὅτι ὁ κτίσας ἀπ᾽ ἀρχῆς ἄρσεν καὶ θῆλυ ἐποίησεν αὐτούς;
Mat 19:5 And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? (kjv) Mat 19:5 and said, 'For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh'? Mat 19:5 καὶ εἶπεν, ἕνεκα τούτου καταλείψει ἄνθρωπος τὸν πατέρα καὶ τὴν μητέρα καὶ κολληθήσεται τῇ γυναικὶ αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἔσονται οἱ δύο εἰς σάρκα μίαν.
Mat 19:6 Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder. (kjv) Mat 19:6 So they are no longer two, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let no man separate." Mat 19:6 ὥστε οὐκέτι εἰσὶν δύο ἀλλὰ σὰρξ μία. ὃ οὗν ὁ θεὸς συνέζευξεν ἄνθρωπος μὴ χωριζέτω.
Mat 19:7 They say unto him, Why did Moses then command to give a writing of divorcement, and to put her away? (kjv) Mat 19:7 They said to Him," Why then did Moses command to give her a certificate of divorce and send her away?" Mat 19:7 λέγουσιν αὐτῶ, τί οὗν μωϊσῆς ἐνετείλατο δοῦναι βιβλίον ἀποστασίου καὶ ἀπολῦσαι [αὐτήν];
Mat 19:8 He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so. (kjv) Mat 19:8 He said to them," Because of your hardness of heart Moses permitted you to divorce your wives; but from the beginning it has not been this way. Mat 19:8 λέγει αὐτοῖς ὅτι μωϊσῆς πρὸς τὴν σκληροκαρδίαν ὑμῶν ἐπέτρεψεν ὑμῖν ἀπολῦσαι τὰς γυναῖκας ὑμῶν, ἀπ᾽ ἀρχῆς δὲ οὐ γέγονεν οὕτως.
Mat 19:9 And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery. (kjv) Mat 19:9 And I say to you, whoever divorces his wife, except for immorality, and marries another woman commits adultery." Mat 19:9 λέγω δὲ ὑμῖν ὅτι ὃς ἂν ἀπολύσῃ τὴν γυναῖκα αὐτοῦ μὴ ἐπὶ πορνείᾳ καὶ γαμήσῃ ἄλλην μοιχᾶται.
Mat 19:10 His disciples say unto him, If the case of the man be so with his wife, it is not good to marry. (kjv) Mat 19:10 The disciples said to Him," If the relationship of the man with his wife is like this, it is better not to marry." Mat 19:10 λέγουσιν αὐτῶ οἱ μαθηταὶ [αὐτοῦ], εἰ οὕτως ἐστὶν ἡ αἰτία τοῦ ἀνθρώπου μετὰ τῆς γυναικός, οὐ συμφέρει γαμῆσαι.
Mat 19:11 But he said unto them, All men cannot receive this saying, save they to whom it is given. (kjv) Mat 19:11 But He said to them," Not all men can accept this statement, but only those to whom it has been given. Mat 19:11 ὁ δὲ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς, οὐ πάντες χωροῦσιν τὸν λόγον [τοῦτον], ἀλλ᾽ οἷς δέδοται.
Mat 19 12 For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother's womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven's sake. He that is able to receive it, let him receive it. (kjv) Mat 19:12 For there are eunuchs who were born that way from their mother's womb; and there are eunuchs who were made eunuchs by men; and there are also eunuchs who made themselves eunuchs for the sake of the kingdom of heaven. He who is able to accept this, let him accept it." Mat 19:12 εἰσὶν γὰρ εὐνοῦχοι οἵτινες ἐκ κοιλίας μητρὸς ἐγεννήθησαν οὕτως, καὶ εἰσὶν εὐνοῦχοι οἵτινες εὐνουχίσθησαν ὑπὸ τῶν ἀνθρώπων, καὶ εἰσὶν εὐνοῦχοι οἵτινες εὐνούχισαν ἑαυτοὺς διὰ τὴν βασιλείαν τῶν οὐρανῶν. ὁ δυνάμενος χωρεῖν χωρείτω.
Mat 19:13 Then were there brought unto him little children, that he should put his hands on them, and pray: and the disciples rebuked them. (kjv) Mat 19:13 Then some children were brought to Him so that He might lay His hands on them and pray; and the disciples rebuked them. Mat 19:13 τότε προσηνέχθησαν αὐτῶ παιδία, ἵνα τὰς χεῖρας ἐπιθῇ αὐτοῖς καὶ προσεύξηται· οἱ δὲ μαθηταὶ ἐπετίμησαν αὐτοῖς.
Mat 19:14 But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven. (kjv) Mat 19:14 But Jesus said," Let the children alone, and do not hinder them from coming to Me; for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." Mat 19:14 ὁ δὲ ἰησοῦς εἶπεν, ἄφετε τὰ παιδία καὶ μὴ κωλύετε αὐτὰ ἐλθεῖν πρός με, τῶν γὰρ τοιούτων ἐστὶν ἡ βασιλεία τῶν οὐρανῶν.
Mat 19:15 And he laid his hands on them, and departed thence. (kjv) Mat 19:15 After laying His hands on them, He departed from there. Mat 19:15 καὶ ἐπιθεὶς τὰς χεῖρας αὐτοῖς ἐπορεύθη ἐκεῖθεν.
Mat 19:16 And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life? (kjv) Mat 19:16 And someone came to Him and said," Teacher, what good thing shall I do that I may obtain eternal life?" Mat 19:16 καὶ ἰδοὺ εἷς προσελθὼν αὐτῶ εἶπεν, διδάσκαλε, τί ἀγαθὸν ποιήσω ἵνα σχῶ ζωὴν αἰώνιον;
Mat 19:17 And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments. (kjv) Mat 19:17 And He said to him," Why are you asking Me about what is good? There is only One who is good; but if you wish to enter into life, keep the commandments." Mat 19:17 ὁ δὲ εἶπεν αὐτῶ, τί με ἐρωτᾷς περὶ τοῦ ἀγαθοῦ; εἷς ἐστιν ὁ ἀγαθός. εἰ δὲ θέλεις εἰς τὴν ζωὴν εἰσελθεῖν, τήρησον τὰς ἐντολάς.
Mat 19:18 He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, (kjv) Mat 19:18 Then he said to Him," Which ones?" And Jesus said," You shall not commit murder; You shall not commit adultery; You shall not steal; You shall not bear false witness; Mat 19:18 λέγει αὐτῶ, ποίας; ὁ δὲ ἰησοῦς εἶπεν, τὸ οὐ φονεύσεις, οὐ μοιχεύσεις, οὐ κλέψεις, οὐ ψευδομαρτυρήσεις,
Mat 19:19 Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. (kjv) Mat 19:19 Honor your father and mother; and You shall love your neighbor as yourself." Mat 19:19 τίμα τὸν πατέρα καὶ τὴν μητέρα, καί, ἀγαπήσεις τὸν πλησίον σου ὡς σεαυτόν.
Mat 19:20 The young man saith unto him, All these things have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet? (kjv) Mat 19:20 The young man said to Him," All these things I have kept; what am I still lacking?" Mat 19:20 λέγει αὐτῶ ὁ νεανίσκος, πάντα ταῦτα ἐφύλαξα· τί ἔτι ὑστερῶ;
Mat 19:21 Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me. (kjv) Mat 19:21 Jesus said to him," If you wish to be complete, go and sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me." Mat 19:21 ἔφη αὐτῶ ὁ ἰησοῦς, εἰ θέλεις τέλειος εἶναι, ὕπαγε πώλησόν σου τὰ ὑπάρχοντα καὶ δὸς [τοῖς] πτωχοῖς, καὶ ἕξεις θησαυρὸν ἐν οὐρανοῖς, καὶ δεῦρο ἀκολούθει μοι.
Mat 19:22 But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions. (kjv) Mat 19:22 But when the young man heard this statement, he went away grieving; for he was one who owned much property. Mat 19:22 ἀκούσας δὲ ὁ νεανίσκος τὸν λόγον ἀπῆλθεν λυπούμενος, ἦν γὰρ ἔχων κτήματα πολλά.
Mat 19:23 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven. (kjv) Mat 19:23 And Jesus said to His disciples," Truly I say to you, it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. Mat 19:23 ὁ δὲ ἰησοῦς εἶπεν τοῖς μαθηταῖς αὐτοῦ, ἀμὴν λέγω ὑμῖν ὅτι πλούσιος δυσκόλως εἰσελεύσεται εἰς τὴν βασιλείαν τῶν οὐρανῶν.
Mat 19:24 And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. (kjv) Mat 19:24 Again I say to you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God." Mat 19:24 πάλιν δὲ λέγω ὑμῖν, εὐκοπώτερόν ἐστιν κάμηλον διὰ τρυπήματος ῥαφίδος διελθεῖν ἢ πλούσιον εἰσελθεῖν εἰς τὴν βασιλείαν τοῦ θεοῦ.
Mat 19:25 When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, Who then can be saved? (kjv) Mat 19:25 When the disciples heard this, they were very astonished and said," Then who can be saved?" Mat 19:25 ἀκούσαντες δὲ οἱ μαθηταὶ ἐξεπλήσσοντο σφόδρα λέγοντες, τίς ἄρα δύναται σωθῆναι;
Mat 19:26 But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible. (kjv) Mat 19:26 And looking at them Jesus said to them," With people this is impossible, but with God all things are possible." Mat 19:26 ἐμβλέψας δὲ ὁ ἰησοῦς εἶπεν αὐτοῖς, παρὰ ἀνθρώποις τοῦτο ἀδύνατόν ἐστιν, παρὰ δὲ θεῶ πάντα δυνατά.
Mat 19:27 Then answered Peter and said unto him, Behold, we have forsaken all, and followed thee; what shall we have therefore? (kjv) Mat 19:27 Then Peter said to Him," Behold, we have left everything and followed You; what then will there be for us?" Mat 19:27 τότε ἀποκριθεὶς ὁ πέτρος εἶπεν αὐτῶ, ἰδοὺ ἡμεῖς ἀφήκαμεν πάντα καὶ ἠκολουθήσαμέν σοι· τί ἄρα ἔσται ἡμῖν;
Mat 19:28 And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. (kjv) Mat 19:28 And Jesus said to them," Truly I say to you, that you who have followed Me, in the regeneration when the Son of Man will sit on His glorious throne, you also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. Mat 19:28 ὁ δὲ ἰησοῦς εἶπεν αὐτοῖς, ἀμὴν λέγω ὑμῖν ὅτι ὑμεῖς οἱ ἀκολουθήσαντές μοι, ἐν τῇ παλιγγενεσίᾳ, ὅταν καθίσῃ ὁ υἱὸς τοῦ ἀνθρώπου ἐπὶ θρόνου δόξης αὐτοῦ, καθήσεσθε καὶ ὑμεῖς ἐπὶ δώδεκα θρόνους κρίνοντες τὰς δώδεκα φυλὰς τοῦ ἰσραήλ.
Mat 19:29 And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name's sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life. (kjv) Mat 19:29 And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or farms for My name's sake, will receive many times as much, and will inherit eternal life. Mat 19:29 καὶ πᾶς ὅστις ἀφῆκεν οἰκίας ἢ ἀδελφοὺς ἢ ἀδελφὰς ἢ πατέρα ἢ μητέρα ἢ τέκνα ἢ ἀγροὺς ἕνεκεν τοῦ ὀνόματός μου ἑκατονταπλασίονα λήμψεται καὶ ζωὴν αἰώνιον κληρονομήσει.
Mat 19:30 But many that are first shall be last; and the last shall be first.(kjv) Mat 19:30 But many who are first will be last; and the last, first. Mat 19:30 πολλοὶ δὲ ἔσονται πρῶτοι ἔσχατοι καὶ ἔσχατοι πρῶτοι.
