30 From there they went out and began to go through Galilee, and He did not want anyone to know about it.31 For He was teaching His disciples and telling them, “The Son of Man is to be [a]delivered into the hands of men, and they will kill Him; and when He has been killed, He will rise three days later.”32 But they [b]did not understand this statement, and they were afraid to ask Him.
33 They came to Capernaum; and when He [c]was in the house, He began to question them, “What were you discussing on the way?”34 But they kept silent, for on the way they had discussed with one another which of them was the greatest.35 Sitting down, He called the twelve and *said to them, “If anyone wants to be first, [d]he shall be last of all and servant of all.”36 Taking a child, He set him [e]before them, and taking him in His arms, He said to them,37 “Whoever receives [f]one child like this in My name receives Me; and whoever receives Me does not receive Me, but Him who sent Me.”
38 John said to Him, “Teacher, we saw someone casting out demons in Your name, and we tried to prevent him because he was not following us.”39 But Jesus said, “Do not hinder him, for there is no one who will perform a miracle in My name, and be able soon afterward to speak evil of Me.40 For he who is not against us is [g]for us.41 For whoever gives you a cup of water to drink [h]because of your name as followers of Christ, truly I say to you, he will not lose his reward.
