Mark 10:17-27Modern English Version (MEV)

The Rich Man

17 When He set out on His way, a man came running and knelt before Him, and asked Him, “Good Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?”

18 He said to him, “Why do you call Me good? No one is good, except God alone. 19 You know the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not murder, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Do not defraud, Honor your father and mother.[a]

20 He answered Him, “Teacher, all these have I observed from my youth.”

21 Then Jesus, looking upon him, loved him and said to him, “You lack one thing: Go your way, sell whatever you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. And come, take up the cross and follow Me.”

22 He was saddened by that word, and he went away grieving. For he had many possessions.

23 Jesus looked around and said to His disciples, “How hard it will be for those who have wealth to enter the kingdom of God!”

24 The disciples were astonished at His words. But Jesus answered again, “Children, how hard it is for those who trust in riches to enter the kingdom of God! 25 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.”

26 They were astonished beyond measure, saying among themselves, “Who then can be saved?”

27 Jesus, looking at them, said, “With men it is impossible, but not with God. For with God all things are possible.”
